Ryan called out Bart Scott, which he rarely does, for giving up an 18-yard completion to Green-Ellis on third down. "Bart gave up a big one there," Ryan said. Scott couldn't keep up with Green-Ellis in coverage, and Ryan called it a "technique issue." Covering backs and tight ends is a hot-button issue after the team's struggles doing so last year. Two plays later, the Jets gave up a 19-yard catch to TE Jermaine Gresham, when it looked like OLB Calvin Pace lost him in coverage.
A technique issue? Our lbs haven't been able to cover rb's and tes for the last 3 years. No lb is going to keep up with these guys for more than 2 seconds.
