Wilson had a pick because Fitz threw a pass behind the wr. He was trailing his guy like always.
I like landry. Not a good cover saftey which we knew, but EVERY hit he lays on someone is a meaningful one. I like what I saw and if he hits Gronk in the back a few times after he catches balls I'll be happy.
The defense didn't play well as a group in the 4th quarter. It's hard for me to criticize though, they won the game and that is the important thing.
The Jets defense will need to play much better if they plan on winning against the Steelers. I believe they can do it also. We'll have to see.
I do know that Rex mentioned poor tackling/inattention to detail to the defense in his postgame speech to the players. This is something Rex never would have done in the past. If the Jets won, he normally wouldn't say a word. This bears mentioning. Rex said he was going to change his ways and take a more hands on approach with the entire team after last season. I believe mentioning that the defense had problems is a step in the right direction.
Tackling, penalty free play, attention to detail, etc. those are all things that Rex would normally ignore and wouldn't get on the players about. That's what separates Rex from being a great HC. But even mentioning it IMO, shows that he's serious about changing those problems permanently.
D looked good to start the game but definitely seem to let up as the score ran up. I agree there were times where Fitzpatrick had way too much time in the pocket to throw, but I'm confident that the CS will get the bugs worked out with the defense (that is what they do best).
Actually, I think Folk benefitted from the change in where the ball is now being kicked from. I believe it used to be kicked from the 20 Yard line and now it's from the 25-yard line or something like that...Folk looked very good on the kickoffs and his FG attempts. I think he benefited from his close battle with Brown in camp.
The defense slacked in the 2nd half, so I wouldn't go crazy. When the game was tight they were fine. They had the one play with Spiller, but that was Lazy tacking in what looked to me like dime defense. That is fixable. The rest I can't take seriously in a blowout game. Rather not have anyone injured.
A few other throws we're just ok, the int was a bad play. The Holmes throw in the end zone could have been better. There was a 3rd down throw to Kerley inside the redzone that was too far outside and forced him out of balance.
That throw could have been better too.
Don't be fooled by that bad Buffalo defense... In future games, Maek won't be afforded the time or have WRs as wide open as they were this week.
Not saying he can't do it, just that it won't be as easy.
Bills were horrible in the secondary yesterday. Mark hasn't seen guys that open since he was at USC.
The key was the OL. As big as Howard is, he seems to be very athletic. He was on an island with Williams yesterday. Same goes for Brick on the other side. And Slauson and Moore did a great job with Williams and Dareus. They did not let them push the pocket. I think our OL may end up being better at pass blocking than run blocking.
I would have like to see a "killer instinct" displayed by the D yesterday. They did well early and then relaxed a bit in the second half with the big lead. I wish they would have pinned their ears back and gone after Fitzpatrick. With all the passing he was doing his face should have been planted in the turf 5 times yesterday. It could have been a dominant game for the Defense (though 3 INT's isn't bad ! ).
