It is DISGUSTING to watch a team that has a vertical passer (B. Farve) and a first round TE (D. Keller) who can stretch the field along with a Reggie Bush like RB-WR Flex scat back (Leon Washington) try to dink and dunk when behind by three scores before they attempt to open it up in the third quarter vs. San Diego. Didn’t the Jets learn the week before against the Patriots that the conservative play calling does not work with the weapons you have….????
DISGUSTING to watch Thomas Jones scrap for 4 yards when daylight is in the other direction. Obviously Leon Washington has better field vision and cut back moves that brings BIG PLAYS. Isn’t the object to get the ball in your playmakers hands????
Why did you move up in the first round of the draft to take D. Keller only to get him his first reception in the third game?? Like I have said before, the Jets need a split backfield with T. Jones and L. Washington and do what the Saints did with Reggie Bush and Deuce McAllister a couple years ago. Washington is much better in the open field runner then Thomas Jones is.
I would say Washington is also better in-between the tackles because of his field awareness but T. Jones can take the pounding better as an in-side runner. That doesn’t mean you can’t do both to keep defenses honest……..Wouldn’t that open up the vertical passing game down the field? Isn’t that why the Jets cut loose Pennington and brought in Brett Farve…??? We all know about Pennington limits and Brett strengths.
DISGUSTING to watch a Head Coach not play with the hand he is dealt. Anyone else sick and tired of watching the game (war) and the field general just chews gum on the side lines. Eric Mangini has no clue how to adjust during the game. He is a power trip that only knows one way how to win but doesn’t have that personnel (hand) to play with.
DISGUSTING to watch a QB and his wide receivers on total different pages after weeks of preparation. I blame coaching for all of this. Players play and coaches coach. All the players can do is the best they can with what is called in from the sidelines. Everyone thought on Monday night we would see the Jets open it up right away. It took them until the third quarter to attempt a pass longer then 30 yards. This was a Charger defense that came into the game after giving up big plays and yardage the prior two weeks. I give some credit to the Charger Defense but lay much more criticism on the Jets coaching staff for yet another bad play calling game.
DISGUSTING to see an on sides kick from a kicker who was not even on the team 10 days ago. How much preparation went into that? And can we agree that it came at a time during the game where the risk vs. reward was clearly not in the Jets favor?
The Jets should be 0-3 now. The score was in the Jets favor but if you watched that game vs. Miami they were out played and coached in that game as well. I will take a quote from Chris carter on ESPN, “We thought the winner of the Jet Patriot game would produce a front runner in the AFC East but after what the Dolphins did against the Patriots last week we can say the worst team in 2007 beat the best team is 2007 so where does that put the Jets…?”
Obviously Brett Farve is not the sharpest knife in the drawl. He is not a Rhoades Scholar like Chad Pennington is. He is a gun slinger and knows how to get out of trouble and make a big play. He also is known for his arm strength on slant and deep vertical routes. Then why are you trying to have him learn an entire play book designed for Chad Pennington? Stop wasting time with shifts and motions to get the mis-match you want. This only results in penalties and confuses the new QB. I am not saying run the single wing, but at least keep the defense guessing and on there heels. The Chargers where biting on the short routes all day long. Never once did the Jets try to go over them until the score was out of hand. This is blamed on the game planning and adjusting during the game.
Can somebody tell me who in the heck that guy is talking with Farve on the sidelines in between series? He looks like a graduate assistant from Stoneybrook College Div 1 AA NAIA Group 4 all district team. My point is Farve can tell the Jets coaching staff no that will not work. I am not comfortable running that play. My strengths are not in our favor doing this or that. Because he has more experience then the head coach, offensive coordinator, and the general manager.
I would rather watch Farve draw up plays in the huddle then experience more play calling coming in from the sidelines and booth.
DISGUSTING again to have more preseason hype then actual performance on the field.
Fire Mangini now and bring in Steve Maruci. He knows how to get the best out of Brett and it would be fun watching both of them together again duringteh last part of Brett career.
