Brian Schottenheimer Discusses Goal Line Series in AFC Championship Game

This will bring up painful memories for most Jets fans, but in the middle of the NFL Lockout there isn’t a lot to discuss.

Rich Cimini, beat writer for ESPN New York, recently chatted with offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer about the goal line series in the AFC Championship Game against the Steelers that yielded zero points.

Schottenheimer offered detailed insights on every play of sequence, which you can read here.

He reflected on the series saying “I really wouldn’t have done anything different. I remember a couple of years ago, when I had (Brett) Favre. I ran it four straight times against New England and I was called conservative because I wouldn’t let Brett Favre pass. When things work as a coordinator, you look good. When they don’t, you look bad. Unfortunately, in this situation, I have to take the bullet that we didn’t get it.”

As much as some fans want to blame Schottenheimer for that sequence, you can’t fault him for the lack of execution. With a team that prides itself on running the football, not being able to gain one yard when you need it the most falls on the shoulders of the players, not the coaches.
