Wilfork definitely did a shove but calling it a punch is ridiculous. I would have been fine with him getting flagged for that because he was clearly instigating but it all started with the questionable tackle by Mangold who was clearly pissed over Talib being cutesy. I probably would have been pissed too but it didn't change the reality of what happened.
Bummed there's so much rage here. Both teams are sort of rebuilding and it was a good, hard fought game. I actually think higher of Geno than I did after preseason/week 1. The ending sucked but by everything that happened after the 3rd interception didn't really matter so I don't get why people are so upset.
So many chances to win the game and we couldn't get it done in the end. Makes the loss that harder to stomach. I don't reckon Geno was at fault for the second pick. Looked to me like he expected the receiver to cut and the received didn't. The third was a desperation heave. The first was on Geno for forcing the throe, but by the same token, Tone didn't really fight for the ball.
Hope Mo is okay and the NFL are consistent with how they discipline Brick and Mangold, given players weren't suspended for late hits in week 1.
there were no positives in this defeat...looked just like the past 2 years...defense plays decent and the rest of the team sucks
Alright then. If that's how you really viewed this game, then we have nothing to discuss. I am nowhere near a sunshine and rainbow homer, but I am not going to sit an willow in self pity about a loss like this. Does it suck? Yes. Does everyone and everything associated with the NYJ suck? No, but that doesn't mean it's all great either. The reality is somewhere in between, but no one can handle that. Bunch of extremist babies on both sides of the fence that need instance gratification or no criticism.
I cant believe all the people here were thinking the jets do a complete reach on a QB in the draft have a circus in the pre season about the QB position throw him to the wolves and hes supposed to make a play off run or something. The odds of Geno ever becoming jack squat were zero and you peoples eyes were all glazed over looking for this impossible miracle. It just doesnt happen that easy especially to the jets
Close loss in a game every expert, media jackal and SOJF said the Jets would get smoked by two or more TDs.
Bring on the Bills at Jet Life in ten days
Then the Titans
3-1 thru the first quarter of the season
With this post, I'll happily turn this forum over to the hysterical chicken little SOJFs to scream, call for everyone to be fired and watch the sky falling for 5-6 days hoping that sane and rational Jet fans can regain control by mid-next week or so.
