Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:45 PM) you want the NFL to say sorry and you want Morningwig canned. You're a clown
bleedsgreen Icon : (Yesterday, 06:45 PM) Gotta give credit to greenbay. That's a good football team
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:46 PM) f*** an apology. It's not going to change anything in the standings which is what matters at the end of the season.
FlyHiJets Icon : (Yesterday, 06:46 PM) definitely reminds me of AFC Championship in Denver
canuckfan Icon : (Yesterday, 06:46 PM) marty ranks up there with bittfumble
canuckfan Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 PM) buttfumble
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 PM) The should have made sure he knew who was calling the time out. Hell Rex was on his right and Marty was on his left.
mgjetman Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 PM) Getting lazy with a minute 50 on the clock before half was the nail in the coffin.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:48 PM) The ref
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:49 PM) There is plenty of blame to spread around. No team should lose a 17 point lead anyway.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:50 PM) DUDS - Miliner and Marty
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:50 PM) BRUTAL LOSS
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:52 PM) I really don't blame Marty because it's the refs job to make sure he sees who is calling the timeout. Plus the ball had already been snapped before he even noticed somebody was calling a TO.
mgjetman Icon : (Yesterday, 06:53 PM) Just gave that game away. WTH!!!
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:54 PM) He didn't even blow the whistle until Geno already had dropped back to pass. The play was already well underway.
bleedsgreen Icon : (Yesterday, 07:03 PM) I heard it when the ball was already in the air
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) but it shouldn't of come down to that TO blunder
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) we did give up a 18 point lead
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) so we fucked up and lost
bleedsgreen Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) True
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) time to get ready for MNF
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:09 PM) Well it sucks when you start to feel the jets are going to lose the game them selves
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:09 PM) the Vick play worthless
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:09 PM) that run on 3rd and 5 worthless
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:09 PM) chris Johnson also I don't know what his numbers were but ivory seemed to be a better back
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:13 PM) Marty just picks the worse time to call those wildcat plays
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:13 PM) they are drive killers
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:27 PM) Problem is the corners. We knew this before the start of the season. I was amazed at how well they did last week and the first half but eventually the weakness showed
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:28 PM) The corner positions will be addressed next year. Technically we are still in a rebuilding phase.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:39 PM) we did go toe to toe against a SB contender and we really shouldn't be heartbroken but if you call yourself a JETS fan and aren't a little pissed over a W that we had in our control then you need to go and hand in your JETS gear ... I'm looking at you 115
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:24 PM) 18 penalties in 2 games
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:25 PM) unacceptable
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:27 PM) Geno dropped from #1 to #28 in TOTAL QBR
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:10 PM) Cutler just got popped right in the chest
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:11 PM) that was a squared up right in the middle of the chest hit
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:13 PM) nice one handed catch by Marshall
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:06 PM) NFL rules state that only the head coach can call a timeout on the sidelines…

Except in Green Bay where anybody up to the third row can call a timeout.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:06 PM) I love NFL memes
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:30 PM) Well I will be at the game next Monday night
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:30 PM) So I will be doing everything I can to help our team win!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 10:15 AM) 2nd year in a row we should be 2-0
santana Icon : (Today, 12:17 PM) TIMEOUT!!
santana Icon : (Today, 08:05 PM) SPIDER Y 2 BANANA
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:44 PM) FIRE IDZIK
santana Icon : (Today, 08:54 PM) Eagles need to START SANCHEZ abandon the foles ship

Are the Jets Back?
By BEN SHPIGELLANDOVER, Md. – Once upon a time, I covered baseball for The Times, and while reflecting on the Jets’ victory Sunday I was reminded of something I wrote about the Mets in September 2008:

“There is little reason these days to tune in to Mets games before the sixth or seventh inning. Eat dinner, check your e-mail messages, read a magazine — but then, by all means, find the nearest television and prepare to be amazed or flabbergasted. Anything can happen, and it often does.”

Now, substitute “Jets” for “Mets” and “fourth quarter” for “sixth or seventh inning” and we could be talking about the same team, right?

After 55 minutes Sunday, the Jets trailed the Washington Redskins. On their six second-half possessions to that point, the Jets had managed one first down, and Mark Sanchez had completed 5 of 15 passes for 19 yards.

And then. And then it was as if Sanchez realized, “Oh, it’s the fourth quarter. We should try to win this game.” So they did, with Sanchez revealing two elements that had eluded him for much of the afternoon – poise and deft touch – on consecutive passing plays on the game-winning drive: a 10-yard dumpoff to Shonn Greene on 3rd-and-4 and the 30-yard spiral to Santonio Holmes, a thing of beauty, that put the Jets ahead to stay.

When asked afterward to assess Sanchez’s performance (19 of 32, 165 yards, no interceptions), Coach Rex Ryan stammered for a few seconds, and he might have been searching for the right words.

“You have your moments,” Ryan said. “I’ll take a guy who can roll up his sleeves and say, ‘You know what? We’re going to get it done.’ And everybody believes in him.’ ”

Including the postseason, Sanchez has played in 49 career games, winning 30. Exactly one-third of those 30 victories – 10 – have come in overtime or via fourth-quarter comebacks.

The very nature of that statistic evokes a team that sputters early and often, that cannot hold leads, and that has been the story of the Jets’ 2011 season. That story’s ending will likely depend on whether Sanchez will put himself in position for more fourth-quarter comebacks and, of course, whether he can pull them off.

Have the Jets’ recent victories against Buffalo and Washington restored faith that, with Sanchez calm and cool in the fourth quarter, they have the moxie to emerge as a playoff threat?
