Call me a homer but after watching the game, listening to the commentary both on TV and the radio comments after the game, I can’t seem to figure out why everyone wants to talk about what the Jets did wrong. Sanchez talks about taking the blame and the Jets didn’t do this or that…………ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!
The DEFENSE tattooed Sanchez and the DEFENSE scored and DEFENSE (Von-Doom and company) kept pounding him into submission. The DEFENSE won at the line of scrimmage a majority of the time and on 3rd downs and is playing as a team and at such a high level and not really getting any credit. Wow was that a run-on sentence )
Thank you Andre for the pick “6”!
That’s called game planning, playing as a team, knowing your assignments, being in the right spot and doing YOUR JOB. That’s something that gets so overlooked. There’s a zillion clichés in football about “teamwork” and “everyone being on the same page” and “everyone doing their assignment”. You hear them each and every week from various coaches and players and I really think you let them go in one ear and out the other as a fan unless you’ve coached little league or boys and girls sports or any sport for that matter. It is so true….but you’re seeing it right now with this DEFENSE. More clichés, “if you take care of the little things the big things happen”. Soooo!!! true with this crew. Why to go coaching staff and players.
When you rattle ANY QB, they become average quickly. You’ve seen it with the Mannings, Big Ben, Brady, Cutler and some even say it to the press. They say when they have the time, they can be effective. YEA DUH?? Basically they are calling out their offensive line and saying give me time to throw the ball and protect me. I don’t know if you notice but Sanchez threw a few jump balls last night right before he got hit, so you know he was feeling the pressure.
You have to give Tebow credit where credit is due. Reminds me so much of when I played in that whenever you had Elway behind you you knew you we’re in the game and had a chance to win…same goes here in 2011. My mother is 83 years old and she calls him the “Cardiac Kid”. She says he almost gives her a heart attack at the end of the game. Funny stuff. The gals at the nursing home love Tebow and wear their jerseys for every game.
P.S. Great game plan coaches and staff, keep it up. And mixing it up.
