Wretched!
Absolutely repulsive. First Jets team in 20 years to go winless through preseason.. and the first NFL team to score it's first touchdown after 14 quarters, 200 plays! 4 games.. 4 losses.. 1 TD. You couldn't have written a worse preseason if you tried. September 9th can't come soon enough.

Highs from the night.. they weren't much. Like 7 said, Coples had a monster preseason. 4 blocked passes, 5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, and 11 tackles. He gets my vote for preseason MVP.

EDIT: It is also kinda nice to know that your kicker is capable of making 60 yrd FG's too.

take heart, the 16-0 Patriots went 0-4 in the pre season

the 0-16 Lions went 4-0!

The 1992 Jets went 5-0 (back when they played five games)....4-12 regular season

It's a good thing the Jets kept the Tebow package under Secret Service protection, since they obviously can't score points straight up without trickery.

For me, this is the only thing of interest about the Jet offense ... revealing the Tebow chicanery!

yes, first game of his career...and the best game of his career. He stared down receivers and threw a lot of stupid picks. His accuracy was pretty awful in general

Jeff Blake should've been given a shot.

That game really bought him the whole season...the Jets were really hoping he'd find the magic again. He threw for 5 TDs and 17 INTs the rest of the way.

Sanchez has never looked better...he has more zip on the ball this year.

Austin Howard completely neutralized Mario Williams (and did it without loads of help either)

Landry is a thunderous hitter...though Im worried about him taking personal fould down the road. He sure leads with his helmet a lot

Hill is thr big play jump ball guy we need (and not the type that vanishes between the 20s like Plaxico) we'll have to put up with his rookie drops for now.

Greene did not run the ball well or effectively power through or shed tacklers. Plus his fumbling issues reared their ugly head again. However...the bills have a great front 4.

Cumberland is looking like a threat in the passing game. Good hands and a load to bring down

So how does a team respond from not scoring any TD's during the preseason? -they put up 50 points in their home opener. :whistling:
There were wildcats.. reverses.. flea-flickers.. everything and anything missing from 7 years of Schottenheimer. And My God did it feel great! Sanchez was the star-of-the-game.. but give the Tebow thing time. He will pay off for the Jets this season, they just didn't need him to today.

This was (in alot of ways) a tough game for the Jets, in the sense it was; Lose-Lose. If the Jets lost, the media would've been relentless. And yet, despite the big win.. it'll be overlooked because it's "only the Bills." The Jets have a big opportunity next week if they beat the Steelers.. not just in terms of beating a better team, but looking ahead after that, against Miami. If we can upset Pittsburgh, it's very possible the Jets could roll into Week 4 with a 3-0 record. Next week is the game to focus on.

Greene did not run the ball well or effectively power through or shed tacklers. Plus his fumbling issues reared their ugly head again.


..and yet, he had nearly 100 yrds and a TD.
You gotta remember bro, the main part of the ground & pound isn't Y.P.C. as much as it's punishing the other team. People won't give credit to Greene for today's game because they'll say; "well yeah he had 100 yrds, but it was on 30 carries." But do you know how hard that is on a back? Maybe I'm drinking the kool-aid here, but I think Shonn Greene is the PERFECT back for our offense. If you have a RB strong enough to run the rock nearly 30x, and can get you 100 yrds and at least 1 TD.. that kicks the sh!t out of another teams d'line.

Someone might want to tell the Jets there's still time left in this game now :rolleyes:


I hold this D to high standards bro, but c'mon.. this game ended at 41-7.
In situations where you're up but that many points, you go into prevent defense.. to sacrifice the 20 yrd passes at the expense of running the clock, by defending the run with straight nickle and dime. Don't judge this defense by what you saw in the 4th. (because those plays were layups) This game was as close to perfect as it gets for the Jets.

Those points given up were all garbage time points. I'm not worried. If the Jets struggle this year, it won't be from the defense.

Edit: yes, I'm exaggerating a bit by saying "all points" - the Bills did score a TD in non-garbage time thanks to some poor tackling on Spiller, but woopty doo.

Very exciting to see Sanchez and Hill look so impressive. It's only 1 week, but today gave me a little confidence boost in our offensive skill players' abilities (how can it NOT based on the preseason, anyway?).

Only thing I wasn't crazy for was Wildcat Tebow, which was pretty predictable and took Sanchez off the field at times where he should've remained on it.

The first CJ Spiller run wasn't garbage time points. Either way, when you let a 41-7 game get to 41-28 with SIX MINUTES left it's a problem. Glad the offense was able to put the game on ice, but Rex was right to call the D out a little in the postgame. And Fitzpatrick was awful anyway, next week will be a better test for the D and the O.

The Bills were laughably bad. But the Jets were surprisingly good, given they couldn't put any drives together in the preseason. That was fun yesterday. If Stephen Hill is a real threat, this coould be a different offense. I still don't like Shonn Greene and am very sketptical about Sanchez, but whatever, let's see what happens.

I have almost no worries about the defense. This is the best D-line we've had in years.
