Jets-Patriots: Second Half

Posted by Randy Lange on September 14, 2008 – 6:45 pm

The Jets cover Ellis Hobbs’ second-half KO return expertly, with Wallace Wright, the subject of Eric Allen’s Special Teams Saturday feature, and Cody Spencer dropping Hobbs at the Pats 21.

Then Bryan Thomas — with his third sack of the season, surpassing last year’s 2.5 total — and David Barrett on a nickel blitz drop QB Matt Cassel twice and the Jets look to be sitting pretty.

But Brett Favre, despite converting an improbable third-and-22 with a 28-yard completion to Chansi Stuckey — equaling the Jets’ longest third-down conversion since 1990 — can’t dig the offense out of a hole, then threw his first interception in Green & White, with S Brandon Meriweather returning to the Jets 31.

Cassel looks flustered again on his first play, a 5-yard sack by NT Kris Jenkins, but rebounds with a third-and-9 flip that Kevin Faulk takes for 22 yards to first-and-goal at the 8. In short order, Sammy Morris goes high over his left guard to score the game’s first TD and the Jets are down, 13-3, with 6:24 left in the third quarter.

With Stephen Gostkowski adding his third FG with 17 seconds left in the frame for a 16-3 lead, the return of Fireman Ed to the stands after a year’s injury absence and a different look for the Flight Crew in their new Marc Ecko-designed uniforms doesn’t matter — the crowd is in search of some big plays to become reenergized.

The energy returns on the Jets’ drive that starts at their 20 — after another Gostkowski touchback —goes for the first five minutes of the final frame, and ends successfully when Chansi Stuckey shakes free of S Rodney Harrison, who trips on a teammate, and catches Favre’s 2-yard feather pass for the Jets’ first TD of the game. It’s 16-10 with 10:18 on the clock.

Highlights on that drive: Favre going 6-for-6 for 51 yards and rookie TE Dustin Keller making his first official reception a big gainer of 19 yards on third-and-6.

But the defense needs a stop and is having trouble as the Patriots move toward the red zone. They can’t stop Matt Cassel’s pass to Sammy Morris for 4 yards on third-and-2, and Calvin Pace’s rush ends up with helmet-to-helmet contact on Cassel and a 15-yard roughing call.

Pace deflects a third-down pass headed for TE David Thomas in the end zone, so Gostkowski comes on for his fourth FG from 27 yards. It’s 19-10 Pats, and while the Jets still have a chance, it’s not much. They have two timeouts left, the Patriots have none, and they need 10 points in the final 5:18.

The Jets have no answer this day. Favre suffers a 20-yard sack, with Leon Washington unable to slow Adalius Thomas’ path to a grasp on Favre’s shoulder pads. Ben Graham’s best punt in a 27-yard-net day still is returned into plus territory by Kevin Faulk, and the Pats burn the game’s last 3:45 for the 19-10 win, their eighth straight in the Meadowlands over the Jets.

    Bottom line is Jets stink from top to bottom. The coaching staff is clueless the team was dead there were several bonehead penalties special teams is atrocious you name it…it’s a stinker. Different personnel same results there was nothing good coming out of this game the Pats are ripe to be beaten and the Jets are not good.

    We beat ourselves. Hat’s off to the guys who said it would be decided by coaching. Stupid mistakes on O the whole game. Coaches are every bit as much to blame as the players. The game plan and play calling out did last year for being unimaginative and lethargic. Did we sign Favre to run on 2nd or 3rd and 24? Isaid it last year and ill say it again. Mangini and Schott were 1 hit wonders at 10-6.

    I swear we were cheated. im no longer a fan of the nfl the patriots have them in their back pocket, That was a bogus call on roughing the passer, The refs blow play dead after stuckey breaks a tackle and TJ runs out of bounds and the play clock runs down to end 3rd Qtr plus Our LB were held all day. and Belichek calls in a late sub which is suppsed to be illegal. Did I miss anything?

    And why cant we ever aquire a decent placekicker. I’d like to see the stats on teams with most failed attempts . If were not #1 we got to be close. The high point of the weekend was seeing Penningtons 12-20 112 yds 0TD give Miami a “chance” to win.

    I’ve never seen such bad calls by the refs. The Patriots commited so many penalties and weren’t flaged it’s not even funny, meanwhile everything little thing the Jets did out came the laundry. I’m not saying the Jets would have def. won, but it would’ve been closer. The Patriots are proven cheaters, one can only think that Robert Craft owns some Zebras now and let them run wild all over the Jets.

    New faces, same old jets. I’ve been a jet fan for 40 years, and they just keep doing the same old things year after year , mistake after mistake. One good play followed by a bone head play or a penelty. I don’t know how much more i can take. They looked horrable. Missed a chip shot field goal. 1st and goal from the two, and end up loosing yardage only to settle for a field goal

    God Frank, don’t be the prophet of doom! There were alot of good things to take away from this game. Unfortunately there were a bunch of negatives too. Play calling was ok unless we were in trouble or inside the red zone. Someone needs to tell schotty that we aren’t using the CP playbook anymore. 3 runs inside the 5 and a boat load of screen passes isn’t gonna get it done.

    Very disappointing, sloppy effort from the offense. Farve looked old and confused. The pass protection failed at critical times. When the defense really needed a stop, they couldn’t get it, and special teams were god awful. Hopefully, Ben Grahm has punted his last shank for the Jets. They are a 500 team.

    everyone said they would give Brett time to learn the offense. well its only 2nd game. When the jets start giving him time in the pocket, & the team comes together i think all will look back at this game & see them working to get there. Its not over till its over & the season just began.

    It’s Hard to watch the Jet’s just give this game away … We have a lot of talent new and old but The bloddy Pat’s fans could predict the plays sitting on a bar stool. 1st and goal and they try to punch it up the gut 3 times ( with Bret favre behind center ) Jay Feely as our kicker, we just got passed the fins and look what happened today when they faced a decent team.. Our coaching is bush league

    The D looks good, but they couldn’t stop Lamont in the second half. We ran the ball well considering the D line we were up against. But leaving Leon in to pass protect was a disaster. Might need a new punter. Need to regroup and have a big effort in SD.

    Thanks a lot for taking Brett off our hands! He may still be able to toss it but the sack in the fourth quarter shows he’s not mobile enough anymore. At 2-0 Aaron Rodgers was easily the better choice of the two. Good luck on a 8-8 season (maybe)!

    The Pats may be ripe to be beaten and they certainly will be beaten this year. But, they are a group of professionals who always seem to know what they have to do in order to win. It is not often they they will come to a game unprepared. I feel that Belichik will take all of these obituary notices and throw them into his team’s collective face. The team and its players has pride.

    I will speak about the Jets in a moment, but to acquiese to Grandpa, Simms is the most Patriot biased announcer I have ever heard – the man is in love with them. It was joke hearing his anti-Jet rhetoric and praise the Pats in every way.

    Mangini could punt better then Graham. We need to start Elam, at least he will hit someone. Is there a reason why Justin Miller isn’t on the field? Most of the problem is on offense, if our Defense didn’t play the whole game, they would have looked better. Still couldn’t stop the run, same old Jets. Better players, same PITIFUL coaching. These games are torture!

  28. By JP on Sep 14, 2008 | Reply

    ok, this is a game that the Jets could have won. But some things need changing now: 1. Special Teams – Horrific! – missed field goals, Graham stunk it up it, we start at the 20 when the Pats were in or close to Jet territory. 2. Offense calling – the plays were horrible – TJ was running decently, Farve is running for his life making plays but the plays are simply stale. Farve can’t be Farve.

    I told you guys your best chance at playoffs was signed by the fins. ZERO offensive continuity. Yeah he makes an unbelievable play sometimes but no sustained drives. Favre is lost and distraught his mind is not in the game he doesnt want to be there. Is everyone still swooping up the favre jerseys? If Brady had been there it would have been a pasting if anything the gap is wider. D is much better

    I liked the goal line plays but on 3rd down, either pass the ball or punch it up the gut one more time..instead they go left and get stuffed! The Farve interception, who cares!, was trying to make something happen. 3. The Chess match – everytime we play Pats I feel like its a stare down, the offense is too tight, there is no fire – we should play them like the Giants – smash mouth D and long O!

When you see Little Leon get sacked with Farve for a 15 yard lose, you have to ask – what the Heck is going on! I don’t know, the Fireman was back today but it didn’t help! The Cheerleaders are cute but it didn’t help! FAVRE!

    Well you wanted Favre you have him!! He doesn’t want to be there he is lost in this offense. If we finish 8-8 it will be a miracle. Bills and Pats are way ahead of us. No continuity on offense. Everything is helter skelter. I watched chargers,broncos even the cardinals and they are way better than us. The chemistry is shot and no chance to make the playoffs this year. 3rd in the division.

    Farve was pitiful. It wasn’t poor coaching that had Farve underthrowing and if he can’t do it he should have stayed at home and watched players who are still exicited about the game. Last week he was almost beat by Chad with a far less talented team. He will be here one year and just draw his check, then go back to where ever. Unless he can turn back time its going to be a disappointing year.

    give them a chance ppLe. what did you expect its a new offense for him. relax and let the season progress. thier 1-1 not 1-15. do you ya’ll read the non-sense you type. the defense is 10 times better then last year and the actually can stop the run. given they did break a little in the 2nd half. they’ll beat san diego next week. the bills WON’T FINISH ahead of the jets they were lucky to win 2day!

    Frank, as I listed earler, there were several good things. The defense played a very solid game through 3 quarters. Matt Cassell didn’t beat us. And the offense had some good moments. I don’t think you and some others on here were giving the NE def. enough credit going in, they are who beat us. And you can’t run 3 times inside the 5 and a bunch of screens. Throw out the CP playbook!!!!

    yes read the name folks, who cares about this game!!! the jets will be fine. the play calls were a bit conservative but we established the fact we have a deep ball and the run game is better then last year. defense is getting pressure and revis is getting stronger. i expect good things this year and your a jet fan then you should be more respectful. J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!!!

    I just can not take it. The lack of imagination is staggering to me. KOTITE would have coached this game the same way. Ooooh try not to lose. Did you see Denver? Crazy to go for two to win it but man was that gutzy. I did not see one gutzy call today. We script the first 15 plays and drive down the field. Then we cant do anything because we WERE SCARED. Afraid to fail. I cant take it!

    NIce call zinjanthropus, I was going to save that for later in the week to give everyone some time to heal from this one. But your right we are very likely to be 1-2 after the next game. San Diego has lost two heartbreakers and can’t afford to go 0-3. But if we somehow win that one or the next one against Arizona we go into the bye at 2-2 right where we need to be. JETS FAN for life!!!!!!!!

    phil simms has always been a jerk, never a jets fan, why is he even here all he does is infuriate the fans. while reading every ones comments, I wonder what game some of them watched, I saw a lot of positive plays on both sides of the ball, punting and kicking is definitely an issue, play calling is fractional
    not whole at all.

    Ray is right that true class is shown when a team loses. When the Pats lost the Super Bowl last year, I did not hear any whining or when they lost to the Colts in the AFC title game a couple of years ago. And, when ANY yahoos (Pats fans included) cheer a player getting injured, they are all jerks.

    For all of you people that think we make hay through the rest of our week schedule might want to look again San Diego, Buffalo X2,NEng X2,Tenn,Denver,@seattle & maybe @ S.F are more than likely losses that is 8-8 or 7-9 then Favre goes home we give up whatever draft choice to GB. What a joke. If I managed something with those results wonder what would happen. Tangini must go !!

    Where was Farve’s protection? Where was everyone when he and Washington both got sacked 20 yds back. In my opinion, if the Def. was really doing their job, the Pats would have been scoreless. We were lucky they ended up with only 19. Come on Jets, Get fired up. You have to want it more!!!

    i think we would have won if jones had got a touchdown on theose 3 goal line carries and leon washington did alil better with the pass protection

    Okay, maybe we are all getting carried away. I really believe the Jets can do this. I’m still pulling for them and will be all season. Farve tends to look like that whenever he looses, regardless of his age. He is far more disappointed than we are. I do wish that they would give him a little more elbow room and let him do what he is great at, make plays. It’s not over yet. Go Jets!
