With the exception of the turnovers by Sanchez, the loss of Nick Mangold for the next three weeks, and the almost nonexistent run game, Sunday's contest between the Jets and Jaguars was an old fashioned, good time beatdown. Nothing like the close contest I was expecting if the Jets looked past Jacksonville the way I was afraid they would.
That Hall dude probably should have kept his mouth shut.
The Jets gave up three points on Sunday, and left Luke McCown with the worst rating of any QB that has ever faced them. Ever. Like in life. It was 1.8.
Antonio Cromartie had two picks by himself. Then one from from Eric Smith (who probably should have had three) and one from Josh Mauga just made their entire time on offense laughable.
In spite of the lopsided score, there were a few things about how the Jets played that stood out to me, and not in a good way. Ladainian Tomlinson had 6 rushes for...wait for it...wait...8 yards. The quarterback had more than that man! Shonn Greene went for 49 and a touchdown. Not the type of numbers a feature back should be putting up. Plaxico Burress was a non factor who spent most of the day blocking and batting his eyelashes. Let's not even get into Sanchez' performance. He did manage to put up two passing touchdown, but at 182 yards and two picks-this can't be how he plays week in and out if the Jets expect to win.
I wonder how much of play of the defense had to do with that Hill guy who called out Revis but didn't play due to an injury. It was more likely that they just aren't that good of a team. Maybe it was the old school Titans uniforms they seem to win in just about every time they're worn.
Either way, it's a win, and I'll take it.
