The Jets had a lead on the Patriots in New England with 90 seconds left on the clock. The defense blew the game.
The Jets had the Dolphins at home, facing their backup quarterback no less. The defense blew the game.
The quarterback isn't playing well, but we are supposed to win games on our stellar defense and it's not happening. All those great coaches, all those great draft picks, that beefed up free-agent secondary, they were supposed to win games like this for us.
And let's talk special teams too. We have the best special teams coach of all time yet he let up game changing touchdowns in both of those contests.
Those two games were extremely winnable and the Jets would be sitting here at 7-5 today if those games went the way they should have on defense and special teams, two areas that have been a significant, concentration for this club. The quarterback isn't blameless, but he is not to blame.
