Pathetic Jets Choke Again

Well, this was really nothing new for everyone who's been watching this team long enough. The same old Jets lost to the Atlanta Falcons, 7-10, after dominating basically the entire game. The so much heralded defense that kept Atlanta in check for almost four quarters gave up a touchdown drive right when it mattered the most. Just like they had given it up against Miami and Jacksonville earlier this season.

The Gang Green still had a chance to at least tie the game, as they got the ball back with about 1:30 left on the game clock. But did anyone really believe that QB Mark Sanchez was capable of delivering a good drive while being under pressure? I sure as hell did not. The outcome of the last Jets' possession was also pretty typical - yet another interception thrown by Sanchez, his third in this game.

It's been almost an entire season but Sanchez still doesn't seem to know when to throw the ball away and how to refrain from throwing into the double coverage. He's just not progressing, period!

Then,of course, special teams... a missed field goal, a blocked field goal and a muffed field goal snap. How can this team always find new ways to screw up? New players, new coaches, but the same old Jets never go away.

The Jets fell to 7-7 and are basically eliminated from the playoff contention.

    I didn't not say they were eliminated from the playoffs, I said they were "basically eliminated", which does not mean mathematically eliminated. What it means is the Jets basically have no chance to make the playoffs after this loss.

    Awful recap, blaming it all on defense and Sanchez when the real reason we lost was because of special teams.

  • Petrozza – 12/20/2009 05:36:40 pm

    Well, that's your opinion. Special teams did not throw 3 interceptions. It really is difficult to win a game where the turnover ratio is 0-3 not in your favor.

    wait a second you guys are getting on petro because he said the defense and qb were to blame for the loss? qb has 3 turnovers and leads the team to 7 points. defense gives up game winning drive. sure the kicker missed kicks and the defense played well all day until the end but the loss is definitely directly related to qb play and the inability to stop them at the end.

    Petrozza obviously wrote this in the heat of the moment when he was super angry. Just like I felt.

    I don't care if we had 6 picks, we put one of the FG in, and we're in overtime. We put two in and we win. Sanchez got them in position to score and special teams failed. The running game was non-existant and Sanchez did enough to win. I understand we only scored 7 but this isn't an offensive team.

    well most of the "Site" administrators posts are blinded by his emotion. Its as simple as putting this on the FG unit- we are up 16 -3 at end and nothing else matters.

  • ToddisGod – 12/21/2009 08:34:39 am

    Its very clear when you read what people write there feeling on Sanchez. The conditions were tough yesterday he lead what should have been 4 scoring drives. The end might be different if Faneca does not take a stupid penalty and put us in 2 and 3rd and long. For a fanbase who speaks of leaving the past behind, we just seem to constantly drudge it up. This team is in the right direction. Sanchez is the guy and I rather have someone who needs to learn to tame is aggression rather then have to learn aggression.

    Special teams at the end of the article, as a throw in. You are way way off base- its the KEY numero uno reason we lost the game

  • Petrozza – 12/22/2009 12:43:21 am

    This is a defense first team. No one ever said that special teams were the best thing on this team. It's that defense that everyone's been talking about. The defense is the cornerstone of this team. They played well the entire game but when it mattered the most, they choked. They failed when they had to step up and make that one damn play! End of story.
