Opening Kickoff Now Set for 7:25 p.m.

Posted by Randy Lange on September 13, 2010 – 6:21 pm

The weather is playing a role in tonight’s regular-season debut for the Jets in their new home.

It was announced last hour that tonight’s Jets-Ravens kickoff, scheduled for 7:10 p.m. EDT, has been delayed at least a half-hour by the steady rain and lightning that have moved over New Meadowlands Stadium and the East Rutherford, N.J., area.

Update, 7:10: The most recent announcement is that the opening kickoff will take place around 7:25, only 15 minutes after the original KO was slated. We’ll see, but the heavy thunderclouds have moved off and the rain appears to be over for tonight.

Temps are forecast to drop to the mid-60s and thunderstorms to hang around in the first half before the wet weather subsides.

Inactives

Two injured players are, not surprisingly, atop the Jets’ first inactive list of the new season. S Brodney Pool (ankle) and LB Calvin Pace (foot) are both sidelined, as are RB Joe McKnight, OL Vlad Ducasse, T Patrick Brown, TE Jeff Cumberland and DT Marcus Dixon. Kellen Clemens is listed as the Jets’ third QB.

For the Ravens, the inactives are WR Donté Stallworth, CBs Lardarius Webb and Bryan McCann, LB JasonPhillips, DTs Arthur Jones and Terrence Cody, T Jared Gaither and DE Paul Kruger. They are not listing a third QB tonight.

Referee

Walt Anderson is the ref for his ninth Jets regular-season game since 2003. His last game before tonight? “Win And We’re In,” the 37-0 rout over the Bengals on Jan. 3 that simultaneously ended the football history of the old Meadowlands stadium and propelled the Jets into the playoffs.

Uniforms

The Jets are wearing their white jerseys and white pants for tonight’s historic event. It’s the first time they’ve worn their double whites, including this preseason, since the 2009 home opener in Game 2, the 16-9 win over the Patriots. During their five-game losing streak against the Ravens since ’98, the Jets have lost wearing all their non-Titans permutations: green/white, white/white (twice), green/green and white/green.

    Sanchez is terrible. He plays scared. He never looks downfied. He is always checking offt o the back out of the backfield. Rex made a big mistake anointing this guy the Jets Messiah. I will be surprised if this team goes 8-8 with all the replacements they made. Blackout City is coming to New York.

    How can 1 team shoot themselves so many times – Looked like the SAME OLD JETS – I was worried about the Left Tackle but it’s even worse than i thought – The Corner position was just straight up horrible – Already missing the players we lost

    The offense was pathetic……a high school team could produce more yards! And Kyle Wilson, not producing like a first round draft pick. Should have started Lowry.

    The Offense was terrible. Horrible. Awful.

    Surprised by Cromartie.

    Kyle Wilson: His PI when it was 3rd and 28 was bad but I think he was overall OK given it was his first NFL game.

    Why did we trade Faneca?

    But….. watching Sanchez with under 2mins on the clock had to be one of the most painful experiences I have had as Jet in a long time. When will he stop being a rookie?

    I’m not posting anything until this team learns how to score some points. It’s bad enough to have to watch games like that, much less talk about them. I’ve been watching pro football since 1963 and this ain’t it. I will say that anyone who thinks Sanchez, Schotty, and Rex aren’t in trouble next year if this offense doesn’t step it up ain’t playin’ with a full deck.

    Well I guess the headlines tomorrow will be how the jets cant back up their talk,It was a 1 pt game! With that bein said wow the jets didnt surprise on O just like the boys we have nothin.Holmes needs to come way sooner for us to have a chance!Maybe let MS throw a ball?DB’s cost us the game with all that talent,Greene a know show,what a terrible game from him.Bart Scott still cant tackle or make plays like ive been sayin.Leonhard needs a pay increase and more credit,what a leader and playmaker.Still wont call up a screen not 1 time.thought we used to be good at that with LW.Schotty needs a hard look at what hes thinking.Why are people sayin hes great and should be a HC?Now im scared for NE when I wasnt before.

    One of the very worst games statistically of any Jets team in history and lose by 1 point B- Favre Ainge Penny any other QB wins this game no doubt .. I had it with Sanchez this kid is horrible plain and simple 125 yards in penities 6 1st downs there is no excuse.. Anyone tries to Blame Scotty’s play calls which BTW have to be dumbed down for Sanchez because he just can’t seem to grasp the offence is only fooling themselves or just in denial what he have like 45 yards our average start about the 50 Ravens about the 10 are you kidding me B-Smith would smoke any QB on this team and gives us the best chance to win.. I love Big jenks but time to move on and is why I wanted Cody in the Draft 1/2 a game and gone for the season .we’re our own worst enemy Super Bowl give me a break lucky if we get to 500 .. another miserable week to suffer though getting so sick and tried of losing like this …Sanchez at QB next week pats 38 Jets 3

    Sanchez is all messed up, now that he “knows” he can check down and that he “is not allowed to” create turnovers he is scared to throw the ball. The Pats are going to kill us next week. This team has all of the pieces except QB which means unless Sanchez gets hurt, the season is over, because we know they will not pull Sanchez. Cromartie is horrible and Wilson is just not ready to be put 1 on 1 with no help. I just do not understand why Rex continued to put Cromartie on Boldin instead of putting Revis over there.

    I woulda never believed this offense was this bad.

    the offense certainly looked different from preseason, it was worse.Keller actually caught a seam pass but was brought back because of penalty to Edwards.Shocked Schotty so much he never went back to it.Jenkins injured again, no surprise to me, when he won that dumb weight contest in preseason I said he needed to lose another 30lbs with the injury he had.Cromartie has attended the Lito Sheppard school of holding.Fassel still available as offensive coordinator if jets hurry.Kudos to Ellis, Thomas, Pouha, and Taylor.No sightings of any screen passes yet.Ravens weak in secondary,jets throw five yard passes, it never ends.

    They started off better last year on offence, they went to mid season of 09 form right out the gate, not bashing Shotenheimer again this year, that will be to easy. look foward to watching this D this year, offence get more entertaining will buy season tics, LT ,J.Taylor, Revis looked great…Green big question mark know, cothery dropping passes, keller ?,,,Line audibling got to cut down, killing Debrick..No reson they didnt try the Ravens secondary..Love Jenkins ,but dont think he can finishh a season, would say hainsworth, if he wasnt such a !@#$!
    have a great season Randy

    I don think sanchez looked scared Mr. Green, more complacesive to me, maybe lost,,didnt let plays evolve for sure, Green just did not look confident, rather see LT start anyway.
    Sanchez just has to get the plays off , check downs?maybe overthinking,
    Tell you the truth I thought the Ravens wideouts were going to have a better day, I thought they did better in the secondary than what could of happened…The Pats will air it out next week, that will be a real test..They wont run on the jets period.

    All the hype, all the hoopla. Hard Knocks, new stadium, it’s time to go and play like a Jet slogans. I felt bad for the fans who attended the game. Another perfectly good time spoiled by the Jets inability to score some points and win a home opener. Now onto the game. How bad is Jenkins’ knee injury and will it keep him out of the lineup. Can Shonne Greene please hold onto the football. Mark Sanchez, throw the ball downfield. I thought the defense and special teams played well, despite those silly penalties. It’s a short week, have to get ready for New England. Certainly hope the Jets don’t start out the season 0-2. One other thing, strictly my opinion. Don’t care what the circumstances are, or who is waiting to be interviewed, female reporters DO NOT belong in the Jets’ locker room.

    Sal…forget hainsworth, the reason he doesn’t want to play for Washington is they switched to 3-4 defense.

    Mike Jet Vet….that is funny, I was talking with my buddy about next week and said the Pats would kill us 38-3 and then you post the same thing.

  14. By Rick Roucoulet on Sep 14, 2010 | Reply

    The only time it was really aired out, it was caught by Edwards but called back – So try it again – COME ON SCHOTTY, WHY SO SHY???

    Parking lot situation was worse than its ever been. Why couldn’t we park where we wanted with the Green Pass and why could we not turn left by the track to go out Paterson Plank Road?

    What an amazing game last night. Sanchez surprised me. Actually, the whole offense was a pleasant surprise. That last drive was beautiful. Looking forward to the game against the Patriots.

    Randy haven’t asked you question in while but here is one. you think Rex might be thinking about hiring an offensive consultant as say a buffer between Schottenheimer and Sanchez.

    Hurry back Erik Ainge!

    Washington went to a 4-3 defense, please learn your defenses

  20. By GaryC on Sep 14, 2010 | Reply

    Like I said when roster was put together, jets lacked depth in defensive line and jets did not do much too improve it except bringing in this guy Dixon.Jets definitely dropped the ball on this one, thinking Jenkins was going to be one hundred percent.

    Just stopped by to see how bad the damage was in here. Surprised that (with the exception of Frank) people don’t seem to be going overboard at this point! Have been talking about it for a couple weeks now, if they thought it was “just the pre-season” and we would suddenly flip a switch and start playing well on offense, they were kidding themselves. No rhythm, no flow. Poor decisions, questionable play calls. Edwards motion penalty that cost us was totally on Sanchez. Why line up Wilson on Boldin…..twice? If Cro cuts that pick return back inside he might be able to go all the way. D better start getting off the field when it is third and long. We can’t go the season with LT as our feature back. First time I think I have ever seen J-Co drop a pass that hit him square in the hands. How many times can we get into the red zone and settle for 3 points?

    Randy:

    Please research and answer the following for me:

    1. Our overall offense ranking (Total NFL) for each year Shotty’s been here?
    2. Where our offense is now ranked after week 1 (2010)

    Thanks.

    I read somewhere that since Revis returned so late, they did not want to overtax Revis and put Revis on Boldin. So one can deduce that Revis cost us the game ! and I thought we can’t do it without Revis. We sure as heck lost with him.
    Shotty – WAKE UP !!!!!!

    If I recall didn’t Rex fire the defensive coordinator last year and replaced him with Pettine? Sure enough the defense improved – right? Then why doesn’t Rex do the same with Shotty – get rid of em’. If you think Shotty is over his head now – one day someone fool enough will hire him as a head coach – that will be a triple blessing 1) We got rid if him. 2) We can get a good laugh and 3) It will be an easy win when the Jets play against him ! nuff said’.

    Listening to the talk radio(ex jet ) in particulare, talked down the D w/ the penalties way too mucH, 1 point game,seven off a turnover, and a special teams penalty, so what!! Comarty , new team stadium new system,, he will need a few to get his legs back.sanchez disrespecting Joe Willy, Ha the kid cant even hold his Jock strap!! And we are back w/ the Brian and mark show again,,I hear lets take his training wheels off another season,, how bout lets take there diapers off for a change, exspecially Green..
