1st quarter offense
1st quarter defense
wilkerson (for his stupid punch)
richardson (for causing the fight, and also for calling the timeout that cost us the TD)
That's slightly harsh on Milliner - he did get burned, but he didn't look fit enough to be out there playing. It's not as those we had any other corners out there yesterday capable of covering Jordy Nelson.
Overall the Jets performance was quite a good one. The offense was clicking throughout the first half up until the interception, while the defense performed strongly up until they inexplicably allowed Green Bay to march 97 yards downfield to get a touchdown inside the final two minutes. Then in the second half things fell apart.
Stand out players on offense for me were Decker up until his injury Kerley, Bohanon and Bilal Powell, who made big plays on third down, and Folk. Defensively, Harris and Davis were solid again as were the front three. Then Wilkerson went and lost his discipline.
Otherwise, Ivory and Johnson never got going, Geno was uncomfortable playing catch up in the second half and we committed too many dumb penalties again such as the roughing the passer on Babin at the end of the first half. Then there was the joint cock up on the timeout call between the officials and Mornhinweg.
After an extremely promising start, it was a very disappointing way to lose.

Defense - while Darrin Walls struggled somewhat, the defense overall was excellent. Wilkerson, Richardson and Harrison were disruptive as usual, Harris and Davis were constantly around the ball, while Antonio Allen had a great game at corner. Also liked what I saw from Landry and Pryor.
Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory - both were excellent, and it would have been nice if they had been fed the ball more earlier in the game. I love what Johnson brings as the threat he poses as a pass catcher should help Geno.
Eric Decker - bar the holding penalty that preceded the interception, he had a solid game with two big gains.
Colon and Giacomini - I think the right side of the line is one of the team's biggest weak spots. Colon was flagged a couple of times, while Giacomini's false start was the first on the opening drive, helping stall what was up to that point a promising possession.
Penalties - once again, far too many
Some of the offensive playcalling was confusing, especially in the second quarter when we moved away from the run, despite Johnson and Ivory starting well. It was good to see that balance was corrected in the second half.
I'm not going to list Geno as a stud or dud. He looked better than he did last year and overall his play was good, especially the number of times he tucked the ball and ran as opposed to trying to force a throw. However, the fumble near the goalline wasn't a smart play.
What was most disappointing was the fact the team only put up 19 points in spite of the offensive production. Penalties helped stall drives, while Salas' drop and Geno's fumble didn't help. With the QBs we are to face in the next few weeks, it's a must that we score more points when presented with good field position.
Still, we're 1-0 heading into a tough road game against a team who suffered an opening day defeat, and ahead of the Patriots. All in all, it was a good day.
Posted 13 Aug 2014Sad to see McDougle likely lose his entire rookie season. With Milliner, this is the second preseason in a row that he has missed time. His injury last year may have explained some of the struggles he had early on, and it would be great this time for him to be back as soon as possible so he can hit the ground running. That's especially important this year with no other corner with the quality Cromartie had on the roster, let alone the quality of Revis.
Posted 31 Jul 2014Jeremy Kerley is our #2, just because hes a slot WR doesn't mean he can't be a #2. Look at Welker.
David Nelson or Stephen Hill will be on the outside opposite of Decker. I think Jalen Saunders can be solid.
The battle at receiver is probably the most intriguing out of any, as Decker and Kerley are really the only guys who can be guaranteed to be on the roster opening day.
It would have been nice in the draft to perhaps have selected a receiver earlier than we did (though by going with Amaro in the second round we covered the need to find another offensive playmaker). But the additions we made in both free agency and through the draft have added speed, especially with Ford and Saunders. Aside from Decker, they weren't exactly top quality signings. However with the volume of receivers we have now hopefully the competition will spur them all on.
I liked what Nelson did last year and thought he really came on as the season progressed, and he would be my favourite to start opposite Decker, with Kerley in the slot when we go with 3 receivers. But I don't necessarily think Nelson making the team is a certainty. Stephen Hill probably has more to prove than anybody, while if Gates, Salas or Hakim make the team they will no doubt have earned it given the other guys we have.
Will definitely be interesting watching this group in preseason. And with Johnson and Amaro adding pass catching threats at RB and TE, the wideouts should in theory have more space to do some damage.
Posted 23 Jul 2014Babin has had a strange career path - he didn't achieve much with Houston, did nothing in Seattle or Kansas City then had two big years split between Tennessee and Philly.
Hopefully he can recapture that form with the Jets, though at 34 a season like Calvin Pace's last year will be great.
Saying that and even though his deal is reportedly for two years, I doubt it's a given that he'll be on the opening day roster. Doesn't hurt to have him as an option in camp though, given Antwan Barnes is coming off a season ending injury, Pace is 33 and not guaranteed to repeat his level of play from 2013. The starting job opposite Coples should therefore be open.
