Thoughts On The Jets Victory

- It was a long time coming.

- I really like Kellen Clemens and his ability to play beyond his year. I like his mobility, his abilily to read drefenses. So far, I have been less than impressed with his ability to throw the ball accurately.

- As I predicted a few weeks ago, the Jets opened the playbook more in KC's second start - throwing more long passes. They still dinked and dunked too much, but at least they took their shots.

- Kerry Rhodes isn't dead, as had been earlier reported.

- The worst Jet on the field this week was D'brickashaw Fergeson, followed closesly by Brad Smith. Smith gets a free pass because he's still learning to be a wide receiver.

- Besides Fergeson, the offensive line was impressive run blocking, slightly less impressive pass blocking.

- Thomas Jones is effective when he gets some holes.

- For a team that sacked the QB 7 times, Big Ben didn't take that much of a pounding.


- All those years of punishment to Laverneous Coles seem to be taking their toll.

- Harris is one heck of a linebacker.

- Revis is going to be one heck of a corner.

- Where's Jerricho Cotchery?

- Best game of the season by the Jets this season.


  • "Smith gets a free pass because he's still learning to be a wide receiver."

    Then let him play special teams. He's not even a #4 receiver, and killed the team with his drops and his poor routes. He doesn't get a free pass just because he's inexperienced.

  • Hey, I said he was the second worse guy on the field for the Jets last night. I just think he has the potential. He is learning on the fly. Brick supposedly has been playing his position since the womb.

  • Fergusom made some decent blocks but it seemed like too many of the busted plays were his fault. He's not likely to ever be a Pro Bowl left tackle.

  • Agreed. I don't think he strong enough and doesn't seem to be athletic as advertised.
