    Isaiah Trufant

    Because of the loss and all the other stories his terrific performance goes a little under the radar. He did as good a job against Welker as you can do, especially considering how he almost saw no defensive action in the last couple of weeks.

    Great job by him!

    Didn't he have a couple of nice tackles for a loss?

    he had back to back tackles for loss (i think in the 4th quarter)...was very impressed by him. did a better job in the slot than wilson normally does.

    Trufant definitely stepped up yesterday.

    Perfect against lil guys like Welker...

    I'm very excited about seeing some of these younger guys as the season progresses.
    There is no doubt in my mind that the defense will get better over the 2nd half of the season.

    We just played Big Ben- Shaub- Brady
    I think the 49ers game was similar to last years 45-3 Pats loss, an anomoly coming off the shock of losing Revis, then losing Holmes in that game.

    We get the Chargers at home.
    Hardest road game will be Seattle & Wilson aint no Brady.

    Get Pouha- Ellis back, integrate Davis, Dowtin, ect.
    I'll be a happy Jet fan if we are 4-4 at the break.
    I think the offense is getting better too.

    nice thread. Agreed.

    When I saw the screen blown up I said outloud "No way Wilson made that play". Then I realized it was trufant.

    Him and Davis played pretty well but wont get mentioned much.

    I'm really only concerned about the Pats, Seahawks, and Cards games out of the remaining schedule. And, after the way all 3 of those teams have been playing compared to us, I'm definitely not as worried now.

    If we just play well like we can, I can see 9-7 or 10-6. Considering how bad the AFC is this year, that could be enough for a wild card. Who knows.

    Wilson does not scare me in the least. I think it will be a low-scoring affair and the Jets really just need to play smart, no turnover ball. No reason they can't win that game.

    What worries me a bit is the STL game on a short week into the NE game. Standard trap game - espc. if Seattle is a win for us.

    What should worry you about the Rams is Greg "Legatron" Zuerlein. His chip shot is like 40 or 50 yards.

    Look at the ravens yesterday - when you lose your best players teams get shell-shocked. Good teams with good coaches can recover. I'm very impressed with our play the last 3 weeks, if we can keep it up we have a shot.

    Ah yes - true Well, at least Folk has looked strangely dominant of late.

    The 'good' thing about being a scrappy, hurt team is that the coaches really have to mold themselves to the play of their opponent instead of taking a 'we do what we always do' kind of approach - so hopefully the Jets will work hard - even during the upcoming bye [coaches] to put together an understanding of how the next three games [Seattle, STL, NE] are going to go.

    Trufant did play well yesterday, no doubt. Definitely would have liked to see him on the field covering Welker on the last drive instead of D. Davis (WTF was that??).

  16. #16
    He was good sometimes, bad sometimes, brilliant a few times.

    Welker still caught 6 passes for 10 a clip.

    Without his two play sequence when it is 23-13, NE is on their way to a 30-13 rout. Great job.

    I noticed that as well. He really stepped up to the plate and made life difficult for Welker and co. Our secondary led by Cro have really manned up in Revis' absence. Even Wilson has been making his improvements too.

    That role is more suited to his skillset than it is Wilson.

    Wilson should be playing on the outside all the time.
