Teams that scored 3 points or less were winless.
You have to be outright delusional to think the defense was more responsible for this loss.
I believe it's at least the 2nd time in 2 seasons where the Jets offense actually gave up more points than they scored.
Never said the D was the reason for the loss, but they certainly have a huge share of the responsibility. I said the whole team failed. I was trying to point out that Sanchez was not the main problem and I stand by that. Again, I posted a long analyses. Anyone is free to point out where I am wrong. Pointed out good and bad by both sides of the ball.
Wow I don't know how you could re-watch that entire game again.
The blame goes to EVERYONE, offense, defense, and special teams. I laughed today on the Jets website when it asked you to select the player of the game.
The two bright spots:
1. SF missed 2 field goals it could have been 40-0.
2. I don't know if it can get any worse.
Mill, appreciate the time it took for you to make your post, and yeah, it has a lot of information in it.
Unfortunately, there is this:
Defense had it's problems, but here's a fact that you can't escape. Say that the D played remarkably well and held SF to 3 pts on a FG and even managed to score 2 pts for us on a safety. We still would have lost. because the offense SUCKED BALLS.Code:START QTR POSS.

Sanchez is ranked #25...with 49.6% completions; and a 69.6 QBR. That lockerroom is fracturing for sure. Only W's can cure that disease.
When the TOP is 37-23 the D is going to struggle. Give them some credit it could have been a LOT uglier IMO. You can't stop every play. They did get some pressure on the QB, they held Gore to under 3 ypc, and they covered Davis for the most part well. The wildcat killed us and that has always been a weakness of this D. 100 yards rushing to WRs and QBs is pathetic. I don't think SF had done that to any other team but I could be wrong. They just kept moving the ball on plays our LBs should have stopped before they began. We do not have the LBs to adjust and SF took advantage of it. The bigger issue is the O. No run game was expected but Sanchez couldn't get anything going. He is mobile if he can't throw I say try using him at RB. I think his career average in 3 YPC. It is not like it would be a downgrade. Maybe he can block.
We put up ZERO points! defense and special teams are irrelevant when your O puts up zero points.
whether you like it or not, the offense put up a goose egg and the bottom line on any game is the score. sure the defense wasn't great. it looks like sf adjusted at the half and they were having trouble stopping the run game. but consider if the jets were able to complete a couple of drives especially in the second half when they came out down 10-0? what if they scored a td on their first drive of the second half. football is an emotional game so a few big plays on either side of the ball would have done wonders.
and even if the jets offense was converting some plays they can't keep on relying on third and long conversions. they were rarely able to get into 3rd and short situations thanks to poor yardage on first and second down plays.
Great job stating the facts here as it just shows how skewed the observations of the OP were.
Ah, see chart above. Maybe some people need numbers to understand?
Holding a team to 13 points through the 3rd quarter is quite good, considering how poorly the offense was playing.
There's clearly an agenda in this post to protect Sanchez, but any honest analysts will see that while the defense was terrible the offense was worse.
