Posted 25 Oct 2014Yeah and it's not a bad deal at all...man we love complaining about anything
Always amazes me when people criticise locking up players who, although not stars, have been solid performers and provide great depth. After all, it takes 53 effective contributors to build a winner.
Even with Harvin and Decker, letting Kerley leave would have been dumb. He's a reliable target on third down - which this offense needs seeing how often it struggle to move the ball downfield - and has been consistently good since he was drafted.
Posted 12 Oct 2014Decker and Amaro were the standouts from that game, no doubt about it.
Geno wasn't terrible - it's tough when you are under constant pressure, while we should never have abandoned the run so soon despite Ivory and Johnson gaining little early on.
Although Denver was a deserved winner, the Walter Powell fumble really shifted momentum. With a chance to get the offense good field position again, he ended up gifting the Broncos a short field. Even though we forced them to punt, we were then backed up deep. And next possession, Denver scores quickly after starting on another short field to take the lead.
The defence - for all its strong play to begin the game - looks gassed. Two games in a row now we have been weak against the run.
We have to get some confidence injected in the team; it's as if the players know they are short on talent and that they're playing down to their ability, especially in the secondary and at receiver. Even though we pulled back to within seven with a good amount of time still to and the fans in the stadium did a great job, there didn't seem much conviction within the players that they could tie. That was evident from the initial offensive drive after Decker scored and the defence forced Denver to punt and we went three and out.
If we continue to play as though we know we're not favoured to win then it's going to be a while before we get out of this skid.
Posted 1 Oct 2014So of out 12 picks who is left?
That's probably the quickest way to list them!
The only players still on the active roster are Pryor, Amaro, Dozier, Enemkpali and Trevor Reilly. Shaq Evans and Dex McDougle are both on IR, with Quincy Enunwa on the practice squad.
It's not exactly proving to be a promising haul of picks!
Posted 23 Sep 2014So being on holiday in NYC, I was finally able to watch a Jets game in person and what do I get to see from section 331? A stereotypical Jets performance!
Such a dreadful start to the game and then when we claw our way back, the team just shot itself in the foot with sloppy defensive play at the start of the second half, Geno's woeful second pick (why he didn't throw it away considering it was a first down in the redone we'll never know) and poor playmaking when the offensive got itself in a good position.
That's two games in a row now where we've run a strong NFC North team close only to lose the game through naivety and dumb mistakes.
My studs and duds:
Kerley - a third down machine again
Ivory - was constantly breaking tackles; no idea why we didn't see more of him in the 4th quarter
Davis - constantly around the ball on defence.
Allen - got picked on by the Bears, but he made the most of a difficult assignment - had a great shoestring tackle too to save a TD
Geno - two awful throws for the interceptions and didn't look confident when in redzone situations
Mornhinweg's redzone playcalling
Secondary (aside from Allen)
Refs for screwing up on the Cutler fumble
Posted 15 Sep 2014Studs
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.
