I've seen it all now.
If you want a more realistic, objective jest fan' perspective than the more homeristic green Koolade guzzlers on TGG, read jetsinsider. Here's a sampling of the myriad of comments over several threads that to most interested non-fans appear to be spot on.
God damn it I am angry. When Mcourty coughed it up at 2:00 laying the game on a silver platter for us. We needed to make that a TD people. A TD god damnit. Not playing for a FG. If we get a TD, we win. Sparano and Rex played like a bunch of pissjes and left 1:10 on clock and with a timeout to Brady. This was a script of what we have seen many times. We needed to go for a TD. Instead we run 2 straight runs and then take a sack. Goddam it !!!!!!!!!! **** you Tony Sparano and Rex Ryan. God damn you both.Poor clock management as usual. Are the Jets the slowest team to get off a play in the NFL?sparano sucks his play calling is awful what a mistake to bring this guy here m, he is lost.The jets played not to lose , its just dumb.I totally agree. Soprano has been and out and out disaster, worse than Schotty. How you run a slant in the 3rd quarter on 3rd & 1 at the 2 when you successfully ran the ball all the way from the start of the drive, made no sense. That was arguably the worst play call I have ever seenSPARANO S*CKS AND BLEW THE GAME. GO BACK TO MIAMI. We left 8 points off the board because of his vanilla play calling.Ever think they don't trust Sanchez not to throw a pick or fumble down there. The guy is a walking disaster waiting to happenSparano was horrid today. Just plain horrible.Sparano called a horrible game. And Sanchez is just not a good QB. That's what lost us the game..The playcalling was horrible today because Sparano kept on trusting Sanchez with the ball. That's why everyone is so angry
The playcalls that he made could have easily worked, we just have a QB who cannot execute the plays correctly.Yes but sadly it was the JETS. I can't blame Sanchez for bonehead plays at this point. The staff and everyone else knows what he is. Yelling at him for these things now would be like yelling because Alex Smith doesn't have a 300 yard game.Jets lost 5 out of their last 9 games last season with a better team and coordinator, their offense was blanked going 0-4 in exhibition season, they now have lost 4 out of their first 7 games this season, until the Colts anomaly managing just 3 offensive TDs in 4 games. Why would anyone being objective about it think that this is a team that's formidable?That and the gutless playcalling. Jets stole defeat from the jaws of victory with that gutless show. They have enough talent and guts on the field to get the job done but the CS were lilly livered.
Goat of the week is still Stephen Hill. Say what you want about Sparano and Sanchez but if he doesn't drop that pass the Jets probably win the game.
Now I am become coach, the destroyer of teams.
and NE was slowing down late in 2007, they peaked around midseason. They were still winning but not crushing teams anymore.
