And Goodell's dissapeared for the last few days, nowhwere to be found.

 

by design I'm sure, under advisement of whatever PR firm they're listening to.

 

A perfect storm was created. NFL die hards have been simmering for years about the pandering (Pinktober) the ruined uniforms, the no kickoff returns, the 2 hand touch rules on QB's, an inability to play defense, and now this year a deluge of penalty flags. Now their voices have been met by various other groups outraged at the hypocrisy of the league and the way it deals with delinquent players.

 

Thing is this type of stuff has been going on for YEARS.  Every offseason we had players shot, players arrested, domestic abuse incidents. I guess this year we had so many big ones clustered together that the media decided to shine a light on EVERYTHING. I mean if this leads to the permanent eradication of thug culture from the game, I'm all for it. But it's going to be a painful transition...cleaning up the league will not be easy

The runs that were executed were poorly designed by MM. I'm not one put the entire blame on any ONE person after a loss, (and lord knows, Marty is the best OC we've had in 11 years) but this was head-&-shoulders Mornhinweg's worst called game in his short tenure with the Jets.

That last 2-minute drive to end the first half told the whole story. The Jets recover the ball at mid-field, on a blown onsides kick.. and the next 4 plays are: throw, throw, throw.... and, throw?? :noclue: The last 10 minutes were completely dominated by Green Bay. They had all the momentum, as the lead continued to shrink from 21-3.. to 21-6.... 21-9.. and now the Jets have the ball with 2 minutes left @ the 50 yrd line, and you're calling passing plays??! JUST GET THE FVCK OUT OF THE 2ND QUARTER, AND HEAD INTO HALFTIME!!!! RUN THE BALL!! --if you get a 1st down, then fine.. but at least if you don't move the chains, you can kill the clock to leave Green Bay with no time to strike. After all, we were going to start the 3rd quarter with the ball anyway. Instead, Geno throws a pick to allow the Packers, who score yet ANOTHER touchdown, and the lead shrinks to 6 points!!! It was a 10 point swing, where the Jets should've at least headed into halftime up 24-9.

 

It wasn't a bad playcall. Sudfeld was open but emerging bust Brian Winters whiffed on his block and Geno was hit as he threw. What may have been 1st and goal ended up an INT.

 

That said, I would've played it safe there as well and taken the points, run down the clock...just run at them with Ivory. Cool any Green Bay momentum going into the half.

 

The Decker injury killed them as well. As soon as he went out the offense ground to a halt.

Textbook Mets gag job. Ruined a great night. Blew a two run lead in BOTH the 7th and 8th innings. Let Mejia (who stinks and is not a closer) give up the game winning hit to .207 Jeff Mathis. Just another absolute affirmation from the heavens this franchise is cursed.

Man deGrom lost it quickly. But shame on the Mets for not getting him more runs. The fact that he might lose this game on what was looking like a magical night is...very typical mets
