Popular Post Alka Posted October 10, 2022 Popular Post Share Posted October 10, 2022 First, I was at the game yesterday, and I was elated with the play of the team and the win. Now that I got that out of the way, two things that bothered me: 1. With the Fins driving down the Jets throats with around 2 and 1/2 minutes to go in the half, the Jets run defense seemed like they were getting pummeled, with like 6 running plays in a row, all successful, moving the ball down the field. It's like the air from the defense was let out, and they looked weak. 2. During that same drive, when it was a passing down, with less than a minute left, the Jets were unable to get pressure at times, and should have at some point sent an extra rusher to get to the 3rd string QB. I understand that the Jets don't like to blitz, but when the team is driving against you, and you have your 3rd string QB completing passes and ultimately got a TD before the half, you got to be able to mix it up on defense. To me, it's bad coaching, and inability to adopt to what is going on in front of you. To me, the Fins should have never been allowed to cut the lead from 19-7, to 19-14 before halftime. The fact that it didn't come back to bite the Jets, doesn't excuse the fact that this was a missed opportunity by the defensive coaches to help out what was going on on the field, and not allow the Fins back into the game before halftime. I know, I know. The Jets won 40-17, so let's just forget about it, and not be negative. Not every game will the Jets be able to pull out a win with bad coaching, in terms of adopting and changing up with what's going on in the game that is unfolding right before your eyes. 6 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
