I give the Patriots credit. Their defense is epically poor, and they throttled the Jets. We started out running the ball, but seemed once again to forget who we are, and what we do. We run the ball. We control the clock. We dont turn the ball over. We score in the red zone. We DONT GET IN SHOOTOUTS WITH TOM BRADY.
We went to throwing on first down. We turned the ball over twice in our own end. We didnt convert in the red zone, and missed chip shot FGs to set the tone of the game. If we knock that first drive into the end zone, we have a different game. The Patriots young $hit *** defense has to be thinking.... here we fukkin go again. One drive, and we cant even stop GQ boy. But no. We give them confidence by not only not scoring a TD on a drive where we dominated, but we missed the FG. Why they didnt just keep running play action on them in that drive instead of going empty backfield is beyond me. Schottenheimer should be fired. And it should have been LAST YEAR. His play calling for a menial QB in Sanchez is VERY ambitious. Sanchez cant cover the checks Schottenheimer is writing for him.
DUMB it DOWN. RUN. RUN. MOVE THE CHAINS. RUN. RUN. MOVE THE CHAINS. Win with running and defense. Keep Brady on the sidelines for 35-38 minutes of the game. WOrked for Bill Parcells and the Giants when they had Phil Simms who was marginally better than Sanchez. Just run the ball, punt to keep field position, and let your defense win. Problem for the Jets is.... their defense aint all that this season. I fear Thursday. Not because I fear Tim Tebow and his 2 completions. Its because if we lose to THAT GUY... I might kill myself if I havent already died of that stroke I mentioned before.
