Well, it’s finally over. We were able to go four weeks without throwing a passing TD. The only thing that was exciting about this passed game is that we can start moving on from it. It hurts to say 6-10 after the last few years, but with the way we played, we deserved to go out on a 3 game losing streak.
The Jets couldn’t even score a touchdown. All of the scoring came from Nick Folk, who had three field goals, and one blocked field goal. The defense was ok, but it stopped the run much more efficiently than it stopped the pass. CJ Spiller only got off one real run, that got him and the Bills a touchdown, giving them the lead. They would never turn back. The final score was 28-9.
I’m not going to lie. I am one of those obnoxious Jets fans who can’t watch a game quietly, or sit still when the game is close. But for these last two weeks, I was calm – I was silent. There was nothing to say about Gang Green. They were, in one word, horrible. I would rather watch Jack and Jill two times straight than sit through these last five Jets games, even when they won.
The offense needs a lot of tuning – a lot. There is literally nothing more important – right now – than the offensive line. The pocket collapses every five seconds. To take some of the blame off of Sanchez, the collapsing pocket has its fair part in all the sacks, interceptions and fumbles that happened this season. Before you start working on you quarterback, you have to work on the line. That being said, Sanchez wasn’t as terrible on Sunday as usual. 205 yards isn’t bad. He did, however, complete only 48.6% of his passes and threw one interception. He didn’t have a winning effort either.
The defense was, as always, superior to the offense – but not by much. They allowed 28 points. That should say enough on itself. They allowed 3 (1 pass, 2 rush) touchdowns, which is not acceptable – especially against the Bills.
Now that we have word that Tannenbaum is gone, we know we are in for an interesting season. What did you think of this game? This season? What do you see coming in the future? Let us know down below in the comments.
