Everything else we did on Sunday . We tried to give away the game but Jacksonville wouldn't take it .
It was definitely a weird performance.
Defensively I thought we were solid against the run. But against the pass we were poor. I think teams have picked up on the Patriots game where they rarely ran against us and instead went with a heavy dosage of passes. Jacksonville did the same, running only 14 times with Yeldon, and were relatively successful, Bortles' key mistakes apart. We may have recorded six sacks, but again I wouldn't say the pass rush was effectively.
Offensively we were sub standard as well. The OLine couldn't hold up at the point of attack, which meant Ivory was pretty much a non factor, except when on the goalline. Fitzpatrick did what he had to though, while I thought Decker was superb. Overall though, the offense failed to capitalise on the turnovers the defence forced and some good kick and punt returns. Case in point was in the second quarter following Kerley's punt return into Jags' territory. However, two false start penalties from Decker and Marshall killed that drive before it began.
Pleased with the win, but we got lucky with this one. Play like that against Buffalo on Thursday and I think we'll be punished.

Ivory - he's an awesome player to watch, bouncing off would be tacklers and never shying from contact. He must have had almost 100 yards after contact this afternoon!
The whole defence - they were helped by Miami's offense, other than Jarvis Landry, being absolute garbage, but the D was lights out on 3rd and 4th down, especially so for the Miami drive that finished with Revis' pick in the end zone. I was especially impressed by Buster Skrine, who forced errant throws from Tannehill on three successive throws before the half. The drive that led to Miami's opening TD was disappointing with the PI penalties against Revis and Gilchrist gifting the Dolphins a chunk of yardage, but they were bad calls from the refs.
Punt coverage team - twice failed to stop Landry from pulling off lengthy returns in the final quarter, which afforded the Dolphins great field position and helped ensure the game was closer than it should have been at the end. Folk's miss helped keep Miami notionally in the game too.
On Fitzpatrick, as JSOTF says, he used his legs well to help keep a couple of drives going and pick up some crucial yardage. I wouldn't put him as either a stud or dud as he did enough today. He was great throwing the ball on the opening drive and that which led to the Decker score prior to half time. But otherwise he was worryingly inconsistent. A throw on a hook route that was way behind Devin Smith and a throw that he attempted to force through triple coverage to Quincy Enunwa were bad plays that particularly stood out.
All in all, very happy with the result and ecstatic to be able to say I've seen the Jets win in person :D
Also pleasantly surprised at the number of Jets fans who were at Wembley today, which helped make sure the J-E-T-S chants were heard.
Posted 29 Sep 2015Moving on from talk of the WRs, one dud for me was Demario Davis. He did have the fumble recovery late on, an opportunity which was squandered when Fitz threw another pick. However, Davis had a poor first half, missing tackles, being beaten by Ryan Mathews on the TD throw from Bradford and getting hit with a dumb personal foul on a tackle on Sproles shortly after the turnover caused by Marshall's lateral.
Really we got beaten on defence by a combination of Sproles and Mathews. The D Line was disappointing in that they failed to get any pressure on Bradford. But Bradford didn't do much through the air, and it was really a quiet afternoon for the secondary. Cro did get beat by Miles Austin early, but fortunately Bradford overthrew him in the endzone.
Offensively, I was perplexed by the early playcalling as we didn't try any medium distance throws, let alone deep passes until we were in a deep hole. We managed to move the ball ok when Gailey opened things up, as evidenced by the drive just before half time that led to Marshall's score. But by then, and throughout the second half, we were playing catch up. Ivory was certainly missed. I do like Bilal Powell, but he hasn't got enough breakaway ability or power to be an effective lead back.
Posted 23 Sep 2015We had over 10 QB hits last night. Luck was just hard to bring down, but we had guys in his face all night. Wilkerson and Williams both played good games.
Agree. I thought the pass rush did well and the pressure they got on Luck helped influence the interceptions.
I thought the offense was incosistent - the passing game - included. Penalties didn't help, which contributed to a pretty ugly game. But our offense made plays on the ground and through the air when they needed to, which made the difference.
As has been mentioned by others, Decker and Marshall were superb again. We don't need tight ends or other receivers when that duo is playing that well.
