Stephen Hill's dropped pass with less than 2 minutes to go
Poor coaching (passing on 3rd and goal from inside 3, bad clock management)
Defense not holding the lead with 1:30 remaining
Sanchez's QB performance (328 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT, 90.3 rating)
The biggest single play in deciding the game yesterday was the very delayed and extremely long distance PI call on Wilson in OT.
If that call is not made they have to punt and I think we find a way to win.
Had they made the stop when it was absolutely CRUCIAL to(1:30 left in regulation with the Jets up by 3), all the "mistakes" that Mark did or that the Coaching Staff did or that the Special Teams did.....would be swept aside 'cause the only thing that really matters in the end is a 'W'.
The Defense had a chance to put a stamp on a big Jets 'W' but came up small....as usual.
Mark, throughout all his faults during the game, put the team in a position to WIN....and the Defense couldn't secure it. Sorry but Mark doesn't play Defense.
So I know in the big picture that Hill is a rookie but for this one game he cost us the game plain and simple. You make a wide open play we win!!!! You don't get to say "well sanchez missed me in the first half, so...." that is just NONSENSE....
the jets defense looked pathetic on 2 consecutive drives by the pats. they were getting gashed in the running game earlier in the year, they gave up 130 yards yesterday on the ground. it's not 'just the pass', 'just the run', 'just the pass rush'. it's just that the defense is average, and it's just the one thing rex can't admit b/c then every loss isn't just sanchez's fault.
other in 3 of our 4 losses we have helped the other team by not being consistant bad passes bad drops tiping bad passes missed tackles penalties.the great team don't beat themselves and we have doe it plenty so far this season once the light turns on and we realize we are in our own way then we will fulfill our potential which I see we have a lot of. I.e sanchez stop saying "we have to play better" and just go out and do it.
i am amazed that so many jet fans are all too willing to blame sanchez for this loss and absolve the defense, special teams and coaching, not to mention anyone else on the offense.
if the nfl wanted every game to be decided by the qb and only the qb, they'd have dedicated wrs and cbs and have sanchez and brady throw to the same guys and wilkerson and wilfork would hold up their hands and count 'one mississippi, two mississippi'....
Yesterdays game came down to bad coaching...
How anyone can blame Sanchez for this loss is beyond me.
Coaching was the biggest reason we lost the game.
Not running it twice straight ahead on the patriots 2 was ****ing stupid.
Conservative play calling on bradys drive to tie the game was also ****ing stupid.
And not going for the win but settling for a field goal before bradys last drive was ****ing stupid.
I voted C against the defense, but I cant believe lets blame Sanchez has as much votes as the defense. Sure he made some mistakes, but lets not assume Hill was going to catch a perfectly thrown ball for a walk in TD. What Sanchez did do was get us the lead with a fine second half performance. If Greene (not surprised) and Hill make those catches he would have been 18 for 20, maybe 19 for 20 if Kerley didn't slip.
When it counted the Offense got it done, the special teams got it done (Folk is a beast), but the defense did not get it done!!
That's like saying if a baserunner didn't get thrown out at 2nd base, the next guy up would've hit a 2 run homer instead of a solo shot... you have no idea how things work out next.
But the Hill drop is one play where you can point to and say it would've changed the dynamic of the game and most certainly would've taken more time off the clock.
For this particular game I blame the coaching. Sparano and Rex blew this more than the players.
