    Game Thoughts: Jets Edition

    1.) Nothing cures an ailing defense like the Jets' offense. Seven three and outs. Only 255 net yards allowed. Only allowed a 27% conversion rate on third downs. Without that 88 kick return, the Pats probably would have held the Jets to 14.
    2.) Rex Ryan promised the return of the Ground and Pound and we got it today - from the Pats. Awesome balance by the offense today.
    3.) After a couple of so-so games, BJGE really stepped up today and ran it down the Jets' throats especially on that last drive where the Jets knew the Pats were trying to run down the clock and settle for three points. They knew BJGE was coming and they couldn't stop him.
    4.) The Jets are in trouble. They are not particularly good in any phase of the game. They showed flashes of dominance on defense, but the Pats could pretty much do what they want and mostly beat themselves on drives with penalties or overthrown passes by Brady to open receivers.
    5.) On that note, my one complait with Bill O'Brien today is his insistance of throwing the deep ball on third and anything longer than six. The Pats need a first down, not a TD pass.
    6.) Almost all of the sacks on Brady were blown assignments. The o-line and TEs need to watch the game film for the next game because they got burnt on over loaded blitzes.
    7.) Even with that dropped pass for INT (which he totally burnt Cromartie BTW) I was impressed with Hernandez on his first game back. Still a way from 100%, but still was a big target in key spots.
    8.) After getting beat the first few week, McCourty is starting to return to his last year form (thanks to the zone). He was quiet in the stats column, but I don't think there was a pass in his direction completed today.
    9.) Kudos to the safeties for taking Keller out of the game. It was obvious that was a big key to winning this game and he was nearly invisible (1 catch, 7 yards).

    Bodden made a great play on Keller early but taking him out of the game was one of the huge stories of the day.

    I think Rex should kiss some of these b/c it is the closest he will ever get to a SB Ring for many many years:) (he won't kiss BB's rings) [prolly b/c SB rings r not toe rings :)

    Rex refuses to Kiss BB's rings here is some food for thought :)

    I don't remember seeing O'Brien make any throws. Those are on Brady and he had guys open behind the D on more than one occasion, he just didn't convert.

    I don't think they should rush to get Hernandez back if that is what they are doing. He clearly isn't 100%.

    Defense played well.

    I am getting sick of these dropped ball interceptions.

    Law Firm is better than Ridley as the feature back.

    The Ref got in the way of Welker on the bomb, but I think Revis would have caught him anyway. Id say Welker had Revis running all over the island.

    Just imagine if Tom connected on either one of those long balls to start the game? Both times, the receiver had a step, but the ball was just a tiny bit overthrown.

    If those, or just one of them connects this game is a blowout from the start.

    35 rushes
    33 pass attempts

    I love it. Alot of us that were begging to run more against that Jets defense finally got what we wanted.
    Admirable effort from the D.
    Ghost did his thing 3/3.
    I just hope Hernandez didn't suffer a setback like when Mayo came back too soon from an MCL injury.
    Bring on the Cowboys!

    I thought O'brien had a great game overall, but I hate that he always goes for big 30-50 yard passes on third and long (and makable). I am definitely not an O'Brien basher (more of a defender of him), but I hate that he does that on every third and long. It is a low percentage play no matter who is throwing.

    Jets have lost 3 in a row, and get the Fins next week followed by SD, at Buff (who look like a clearly better team) and us again. The could very well be 3-6 and done

    Also if AH didn't drop a TD and it falls right into Cromartie's hands.
    Or the big KR that led to a Jets TD.
    We still won rather comfortably. We are a far better team right now than the Jets, a team that should be 1-4 right now.

    I wouldn't be shocked if they were 2-7. Wouldn't bet on it, but they are a front runner team and a loss like this can throw them in a funk.

    Glad to see the 3rd down defense step up the way it did, but there were still a few miscues in the secondary.

    All in all, progress was made on that side of the ball today imo.

    we made more plays then the jets.. but we had a better game plan then the jets.. but i think in the second half we could have used more ocho.. the d stepped up.. more then they ever did this year.. but we have a long way to go...... and its a great win..

    Happy with the running game. BJGE is a tough, dependable runner.
    Also glad to see the defense getting better, step by step.
    Would rather not have seen that huge return by McKnight....

    Did anybody see the Jets ground and pound? They didnt even have 100 rushing yards by committee.

    Greene had 83 yards
    Elle T had 13 yards
    McNugget had 1 yard

    Also, they were down by 2 scores and running the ball burning clock in the 4th quarter.

    Defensively looked much better on 3rd down, yet seemed to lose it in the red zone.
    Offensively we brought some heat on the ground which was nice to see, and it's pretty obvious Hernandez isn't at 100% yet.

    Would love to see more games where we have more rush attempts than passes.
    I was pleased with the defensive effort, but I'd still like to see more QB pressure. In the meaningful plays I think the only real pressures came from Wilfork and Arrington.
    KR was a major concern today. We're gonna hafta get Ghost to boom it ALL THE WAY out the end zone now instead of just 8 yards deep :rolleyes:
    Speaking of Ghost he was perfect today, never should take it for granted even if a couple were gimmes.
    Hope Hernandez didn't suffer any setbacks by coming back this week. But he definitely contributed to the win so it's hard to regret having him out there.
    The best thing was seeing the balance on offense, this is the type of offense I want to see. No they didn't put up 40 points and 500 yards but they were efficient and [almost] mistake free. And we're not putting too much on Brady's shoulders, that's how we won titles.

    BJGE imrpoves every week. His use of blockers is approaching the sublime. He also breaks tackles and is running with more power every week. If he continues to improve at this pace..... Brady still doesn't trust him in the passing game.. he was open a lot without getting the ball.

    The O-Line had some serious miscues tonight... they also had some flashes of greatness. I hope they can get more consistent. Waters is probably the most consitent guy we have... what a great pick up.

    AH needs to work on his ball security. I hope it doesn't bite us in the playoffs.

    Spikes looked lost at time. Guyton's coverage is good, but the rest of his game is inconsitent. When Mayo returns, this D will improve dramatically.

    When a guy make such great pancakes, sometimes it's hard to have him cook anything else. Gronk is the best TE in the game.

    I miss Woodhead.

    Special teams need work. I'd rather see gost kick it out of the end-zone than try to kick it high. I'd also rather see the Pats take a knee whenever the ball is kicked high. There is a lot of room for improvement in the kick-off game.

    Revis gets away with way too much....

    Welker is awesome. It's gotten to the point where putting him in motion tells you more about the D than putting the TEs in motion.

    This team is gonig to be special come December.

    Screw that, they have Miami coming off a bye week and desperate for a win (along with the fact that I have a feeling the Kyle Orton trade talks will start up again). They could very well be 2-7.

    Not saying you were wrong about the assignments being blown, but two of sacks I thought Brady held onto the ball too long.

    You are right, but was in concert with blown assignments. The times Brady held on too long were coverage sacks, but at least once he had an opportunity to dump the ball to avoid the sack.

    jets defense is pretty good

    jets running back looks good

    not a big fan of guyton

    Bodden had one of his better games today

    Brady seems just generally pisssed about stuff, seems to be in a grumpy mood, or it could be the same idiot reporter asking him stund questions

    85 gotta be a better blocker

    i luv WW

    great challenges

    i luv, always have from the start, BJGE. Once he decides to cut up field he does with power. Love to see that balance too

    Brady seemed a bit off today (from his usual robot-like accuracy)

    A win next week would be a wonderful way to enter into the bye week and get some guys healthy
