The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (J-E-T-S)

The Good
- 3 touchdowns in 52 seconds is pretty good. All 3 phases scored too.
- 109 points in 5 days. Not a bad week of work.
- Brady got his stuff together after a shaky start and really showed what he was worth. Listened to Boomer on the radio and he mentioned that Tom was throwing a lot on the sidelines trying to work something out. He certainly did.
- Could you see how fired up 12 was? Every score was like a Super Bowl score. He was pissed that he missed Lloyd for a TD on a deep throw. “Crazy Legs” also had a rushing TD.
- Vince might have played his best game as a Pat. He was completely dominant. He literally threw Brandon Moore (after beating the double team) back into Sanchez forcing a fumble.
- We are now +24 in turnover differential with only 8 giveaways all season. That is +11 on Chicago who has only 1 more takeaway than us.
- The patchwork OL played a great game, giving Brady all day to throw. No sacks and only the opening play of the game grounding call. 2 weeks in a row without a sack.
- Vereen has some speed. Great play design on the wheel route. Welker went inside taking the defender and safety with him. Vereen runs nice and wide and motors down the sideline for a TD.
- Gregory deserves special notice here. He played a whale of a game with an INT and 2 fumble recoveries plus the TD.
- What a shock…McCourty caused another fumble.
- What a shock…Ninkovitch has another recovery.
- Nice to see Hernandez back on the field. He will need the rest of the season to get back into game shape before the playoffs but there is no need to rush it. We have enough weapons so he doesn’t need to go wire to wire.
- No better way to get BB his 200th win.
- Dennard and Talib play all but 1 down and were solid all game. Both will only get better from here and could provide us with a big boost come playoff time.
- Love the goal line stand in the 3rd quarter. Yes, the game was over but they still played tough and forced the turnover on downs.
- It’s good to have a nice Jewish boy perform some wholesome halftime music. I have always liked Lenny and his music.

The Bad
- A little miscommunication between Hoomanawanui and Ridley on the chop block in the EZ. It looked like a bad play design to try and pick up the blitzer up the middle after the play fake caused both backs to go around Brady. Couldn’t get there in time and 1 went high when one went low.
- 8 penalties including a couple of offsides and an unnecessary roughness call can get us into trouble against good teams. I understand that once the rout was on, you get amped up but you must control yourself and not do something stupid.
- Edelman took a shot and came up with a concussion. He was playing great up to that point as well. We need him on the field as a punt returner as well as that other slot guy.
- Another missed FG but this one may not land solely on Ghost. The snap and hold looked a little funky.
- Baltimore won again when they had no business doing so. Down 10 with 5 to go, the Chargers couldn’t seal the deal. They had a shot in OT but screwed that up too.
- Houston wins.

The Ugly
- Brandon Moore’s ass is now tied for 3rd on the Jets team for forced fumbles this year.
- I saw Fireman Ed without his helmet in the stands, that was until he left at halftime. Didn’t find out until just this morning that he is hanging it up because of confrontations with other Jets fans in the stands. Though I hated the Jets, I liked Ed as he was so involved and such a huge fan. He will still go to games, just without the helmet.
- Tebow was dressed for the game but had broken ribs and would have had to throw with his opposite arm if he did play. I am wondering if the Jest with get penalized for not announcing the injury.
- The Houston/Detroit challenge debacle. I understand the rule that if you throw a challenge flag on a play that can’t be challenged you get a 15 yard penalty. This is meant to prevent a team from slowing the pace. In this case, however, the play was going to be automatically reviewed. Since the challenge flag came out, the rule is enforced. Why, however, the play is still not reviewed is beyond me. It was a dead ball foul. How does that negate the automatic review of the TD? That stupid move by the coach cost his team the game.
- The OT in Detroit. How many missed FGs can there be?
- Sexy Rexy said he will never concede that the Jets can’t catch the Pats. I would agree with that. The only difference will be that Sexy will be long gone when it does. My guess is that it won’t happen until Brady and BB hang ‘em up.

Great analysis Dave! I suspect there will be a rule change next year by the NFL because of that Houston vs Lions officiating debacle. Ultimately the Lions inability to finish the game was the chief reason they lost but I think we can reasonably believe that the officiating crew probably affected the outcome of the game. It is definitely in the top 5 of worst officiating calls ever made.
