Jets Lose To Redskins In Overtime

The Jets lost to the Washington Redskins in overtime by a score of 23 - 20. We are not going to continue the theme of media negativity that we have seen this season towards the Jets. We are not going to talk about a defensive line that needs to be overhauled. We won’t mention an offensive line that still can’t run block. Nor will we discuss a coaching staff that continues to get out coached in the second half each week.

Instead we would like to talk about Kellen Clemens. And only Kellen Clemens. He showed a glimpse today, a glimpse that Jets fans hope is a sign of good things to come. He faced heavy pressure and made good decisions. He walked away with his head held high. Kellen gave the Jets a chance to win.

Young Kellen didn’t have his numer one wide receiver Laveranues Coles. Kellen’s numbers weren’t great. He threw 42 times and completed 23 passes for 226 yards and 1 touchdown. The bigger number was 0 interceptions. He was blitzed and rarely held the ball too long. He threw it away when needed. Kellen ran 7 times and picked up 48 yards. He showed toughness and encouraged his receivers after a dropped pass. It is going to take his receivers a little while to get used to his velocity. The ball was definitely getting downfield, further and quicker than they are used to.

Today is not a day for negativity. The Jets record now stands at 1 win with 8 losses. Today is a day to talk about Kellen Clemens. What he showed today was certainly encouraging. In a season that was over before it was started, it would be nice if the Jets emerged with a true franchise QB.

It was lazy reporting. I asked him to come back and play on the Jets defensive line. He said they better open the checkbook if they want him back!!!

They'd have to special order a helmet for that giant pumpkin he has on his shoulders.

He showed a lot to me on that game. Here's why:

  • Played a very good D

  • Threw no picks

  • Dropped passes from WR's didnt help him at all

  • Showed very good mobility, a weapon the Jets havn't had in a long time

  • The arm, obviously is very strong

  • Coles was out.

  • Non-existant running game didnt help

  • Got us in position to tie the game, IMO he would have won it for us in OT only for bad playcalling

  • last but sure as hell not least the D playing like high school kids, bad ones at that.

Overall i was very impressed!!

Absolutely. KC scrambled, threw on the fly, and was 11/18 on 3rd down conversions. We punted the ball 3 times. Thats not record setting, but with CP under center we probably avg'd 4 + and of course we didnt need to punt it when he was picked.

The Jets played respectable football today because we had a respectable offense. Good start to your pro career Kellen.
