Moore, Others on the Mood of the Team

Posted by Eric Allen on December 13, 2010 – 6:30 pm

After dropping their past two games and with two more daunting tasks on the immediate horizon, many have written off the New York Jets.

“That’s the outsiders. We’re just fine,” said a defiant Brandon Moore this afternoon when told that many outsiders feel like the wheels are coming off. “We’re going to come to work on Wednesday. Each guy is going to find a way to get better. We’re not concerned with what people outside think. We are the only ones who can fix it and get it turned around. So I can really care less about what people on the outside think.”

When any offense combines to score just nine points in two contests, the quarterback and the offensive coordinator get a lot of heat. And that has been the case in New York the past 24 hours as second-year QB Mark Sanchez followed up a 51.5 completion-percentage, three-interception night in Foxboro with a 38.6 percent, one-INT at New Meadowlands Stadium against the Dolphins on Sunday.

“As far our offensive execution, it was poor,” said head coach Rex Ryan. “I sat in there and watched the game with our offensive staff and so much of it comes down to fundamentals and technique. That’s just the way it is at every position. When all else fails, you go back on your fundamentals and technique. And in Mark’s case, you can’t be accurate with the football if you don’t have proper footwork. It’s hard to throw when you’re not set and ready.”

While Sanchez has struggled mightily of late, his offensive ‘mates said the problems have been collective. He was sacked six times against the Dolphins and the Jets again had a case of the dropsies at some inopportune times.

“It’s not Mark, believe me,” said WR Jerricho Cotchery. “We’re not playing well offensively as a whole, as a group. Every guy on offense has to get better for us to have an opportunity to put points on the board.”

“It’s not just Mark,” added the versatile Brad Smith. “It’s the receivers, the offensive line, the running backs — all of us have to do better at executing and just play the game the way we know how to play it and we’ll be fine. Stop worrying about all the other stuff.”

It is soul-searching time.

“We are looking at ourselves, me looking at myself, other guys looking at themselves and trying to find the answer of ‘What can I do better to help this team be efficient on offense?’ That’s the mood of the team,” said Moore. “We’re going to come in today and on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and try to win on each one of those days and get better.”

The Jets are ranked fifth in the NFL in rushing (143.7 yards per game), but the Dolphins clogged the lanes well as the home club averaged just 2.8 yards on its 31 carries.

“I don’t care if you have Jim Brown back there,” said Ryan. “Jim Brown is not going to run back there if you have a free hitter to the football at the line of scrimmage. Those are things we need to get corrected. We need to give our guys some chances. ‘Ground and Pound,’ I know we can be better, I believe we can get better.”

“Guys have to take it upon themselves to win their 1-on-1 matchup,” said Moore. “It’s as simple as that and not having breakdowns here or there. It takes all five of us, six, seven of us with the fullback and the tight end. That’s the biggest thing we’re going to look to improve.”

There may have been margin for error before, but that’s changed in the past week. The Jets are going to have to be sharp offensively against one of the league’s best defenses in the Steelers or the losing streak will grow to three.

“On offense right now, there is a sense of urgency to get better,” Cotchery said. “We have three games left and you have to make sure you’re getting better in order to give yourself a chance to win a game on a Sunday. That’s where we are right now.”

Sanchez, a 53 percent passer with 16 TDs and 12 INTs through 13 games, is the Jets’ quarterback of the now and the future.

“Mark is our quarterback, he’s my quarterback,” said Ryan. “He’ll always be our starting quarterback. Even if I did yank him for whatever reason, he’s our quarterback and we’re going to go as far as he takes us.”

Injury Updates

The news wasn’t great for the Jets on the injury front as RT Damien Woody (knee) was ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Steelers and Ryan said he’ll likely have arthroscopic surgery. Wayne Hunter, who replaced Woody in the opening quarter Sunday, will start in his place. And the defense, already thin at safety, will likely miss the services of Eric Smith (head) this weekend as well.

    The Jets have no first down offense…setting up the opponents defense game after game with two ineffective runningbacks aint making it….Which speaks of the mindset that released Woodhead…preparation is how games are won on Sunday and either coaches arent working smart or players are dumb…so Jets stop pretending you are great and concentrate on just being GOOD

    At least the players unlike some here are being honest on real problem is not to a man blamed Schotty maybe there is hope for these guys yet ..As we all know talk is cheap god knows plenty of that around here lately Let me repete my last post you didn’t get to read… How many games this year have we lost when our offence clicked on all cylinders NONE ..how many did we lose when Sanchez is fumbling INT’s dropped passes stupid penilties lack of execution by $100million players 4 ..I rest my case you guys try coaching this bunch, be a whole lot of Bald Jet fans out there

    I hope everyone was able to listen to Rex’s presser. He spoke about “EXECUTION” on the field. You know, like I have been saying all along. When and if that execution translates on to the field you will see a whole lot of things changing, if it don’t translate on to the field I believe you will see a whole lot of changes in personal for 2011 No one wants to play the blame game, there is enough blame to go around, that is obvious, but you have to start with the most obvious positions as well,I think everyone knows where to begin.

    MJV, you were in the military? Then tell me, how many guys live to tell the tale after blaming the top dog? I got a friend who almost got court-martialed, literally, after he spoke up to a general who insisted on test-flying a plane that had failed miserably for months and then went down just like my friend said it would, killing the pilots. So don’t ask any Jets to criticize Schotty to reporters, people were shocked yesterday when BE merely stormed out of the locker room. russ, Woodhead would be just as ineffective behind our O line as LT and SG have looked lately, as Spicer says we’re just not opening the kind of gaping holes that we did last year. scjoe, Rex will talk execution today and every day, including on the day he fires Schotty.

  5. By Jets Fan Since '64 Tom on Dec 13, 2010 | Reply

    And by the way, MJV, pulling wins out at the last minute and in OT against lousy teams is hardly evidence of “our offense clicking on all cylinders.” Our offense hasn’t clicked on all cylinders over four quarters in a single game this year and only a few last year, which is only one reason that Rex’s claim that “Mark will always be our starting quarterback” gives me chills. But I know that really means “always until I give up on him.” After all, this is the guy who praised Woodhead to the skies two years in a row but somehow couldn’t find a way to keep him on the team even as a backup. Not that Woodhead or anyone else could work wonders with our line playing like it is and Schotty’s worthless game plans…

    Watching how Houston uses Andre Johnson to stretch the field demand double teams ,and then that opens the field up for their TE over middle , I just wonder why cant we do this , use Holmes or Edwards play action fake let it progress and BAM Keller would be wide open , Im so tired of watching offenses make it look so easy,when they have half the talent we have,our scheme has to change a little, max protect and let these pro bowl Wr’s and Keller beat there man,and if executed ,the running lanes will return and so will the endzone..Its time to show different looks shotty,it should start with more over the middle routes,no more of this need 8 and we run 4 yard out patterns,the Steelers D-backs can be beaten like drums if you execute,

    Just finished watching the Ravens game. I have to say that two things stand out: 1) when the defenses run a scheme (blitz, stunt etc) these guys (even on the Texans poor D) bust *** to get there, it doesn’t look like our guys are running through walls for Rex anymore. Lack of effort. 2) The offenses have plays that, while safe, are effective; out patterns thrown to a spot, clear outs for receivers running underneath etc. Our O has no continuity, its very “herky-jerky”. Both issues are coaching related. Rex must assume a more reticent, authorative posture, you can’t be friends w your employees and get results. Schotty needs to adjust to the teams throwing 8 in the box (been saying this from day one). If we have to throw short underneath…

  9. By kleckofan on Dec 14, 2010 | Reply

    cont’ patterns to loosen up the run then do it early; this two runs and a third and seven pass routine must end. Also, my man Klecko has pointed out that we are v. prdictable in terms of formation and play call. I see plays run by other teams that are innovative, not from us. Get back to basics, D quit thinking that the scheme is more important than the effort, its not. If we have to play simpler schemes w more intensity lets do it. O needs some zip, too sluggish and deliberate…there are pitchers who set up the curve w the fastball and then there are pitchers who don’t have the heat and set you up w junk for an 81 mph fastball, our O needs to decide which we are. Suck it up and play your tail off. Go Jets.

    @Russ: The running backs are not in-effective. They’re not being put in position to succeed. Teams know we run on first down. They stuff the box on first down. Now we are in 2nd and long. We are too predictable. Where is play-action? Where is rolling out? Where is passing on first down. Where is running out of a 4 receiver spread? Where is the flea-flicker? Where is lateral to Smith then have him pass? Lets get the opponents defense off balance. Lets get them to where they don’t know what to expect!

    First of all if you want to play the blame game on anyone, blame the poor preparation and playcalling on both sides of the ball. Rex is supposedly this defensive genius, but i don’t see it. While we’re getting pressure on the opposing team’s QB, we’re giving away 3rd down conversions left and right because almost everytime rex or pettine or whoever is calling the defense keeps calling these blitzes. I know we have a stacked defense, and one that can pressure QB’s effectively all game, but theres a time when you have to decide to play smart football and sometimes blitzing isnt always the smart thing to do. Especially when its 3rd and 10+ yards, dont blitz you know they need to get 10 yards to stay on the field so play coverage, dont be dumb.

    If there were any players to blame for the loss in miami i’d say QB play was so bad that we had no chance of winning, regardless of how many passes were dropped by WR’s. Passes were off timing, under or overthrown, sanchez is just looking terrible. Deffinetly poor usage of a 1st round draft pick if this play continues in my opinion. I bet we could’ve gotten sanchez in the 2nd or 3rd round to be honest

  15. By Jets Fan Since '64 Tom on Dec 14, 2010 | Reply

    Bleedsgreen…, Schotty will go first, of course. Then Sanchez if he doesn’t step up big-time for the rest of this year and all of next, though of course Rex will do it with a heavy heart. Because the bottom line is if we don’t look better than this by the end of this year or all of next, Rex’s dream of coaching the Jets for ten years or more will come to a very quick end. And he knows it, even if he seems sort of in denial about it right now. I think he just thinks that he, Callahan, and Cavanaugh could never handle the O thru the post-season if he fired Schotty now. I’m not sure he’s right about that, by the way.

    I must admit. I have been a jet fan for 40 yrs, but i have seriously thought about throwing all of my memorobilia, merchandise, and all the rest of it, and throwing it in the trash and just being a jet fan on the inside. Not getting to psyched up anymore, and just say to hell with it! Getting older gives one wisdom. I have seen enough incompetence with this team over the yrs. to last several life times. There is almost always something preventing this team from winning another super bowl that makes me think of karma. Maybe being the team that dethroned the old gaurd nfl, when we were the afl has cursed the jets to never again set foot on that stage.

    We want to be a run first oriented team, HOWEVER, I think there are certain things that need to be addressed with the running game. First of all, using the wildcat on second down, losing yardage, and then putting Sanchez back in on third and long is an unfair situation for him. Also, why would you take Sanchez out for the wildcat on 4th down? Teams then automatically know that it’s run. Could we also please start running out of different formations and not just go up the middle in power I? How bout a draw out of shotgun or both Sanchez and Brad Smith in shotgun and a direct snap to Smith, something new. Changes are needed to conceal that its run and keep Sanchez on the field longer to get his groove back and put him in better situations.

    When they played the Patriots you could see the difference.
    Tha Pats lined up focused and energetic on defense, the Jets were slow and lazy and at times I was wondering how many Jets had their heads turned when the ball was snapped. Now to be fair, the Jets defense did a good job against the fins, the offense was awful but they look slow and uninterested at times. Here is what we see…the opponents quarterbacks have 3,5, 10 seconds to throw, Sanchez has maybe 2 before the pocket collapses.
    I have been a Jets fan since 1969 and have had the heartbreak like everyone else, how about this…instead of trading non-performing players, bury them on the bench so no one will ever see them play, maybe then they’ll earn their money.

    SCJOE, Pllease telll me one time EVER in the history of football where the head coach is going to say the O corordinator is not getting it done. 1 time EVER! The only time that would ever be said is the day he is fired THATS IT! It will always be we are not executing that is the standard answer. Also since the first game EVER played up until today the game is won & lost at the line of scrimmage 99.99% of the time. A great O line makes a bad QB look good, a good QB look great & a great QB into a hall of famer. We run the ball LT & Greene get hit the 2nd they hit the line. Is that on the QB? Or is that on the line & the OC. Block better or change your play!

    Got to hear a bit of what Joe Klecko said yesterday on SNY. He’s right but… We’ve seen this “DEER in the HEADLIGHTS” at some point in our last three coaches; Herm, Eric and now Rex. What they have in common is that they were/are all first time Head Coaches. Everyone has to “GROW” into their job. So like a new signal caller the HC is going to have his growing pains. There’s no promise of success in a “retread” coach either. So what do you do? You make sure the guy you hire is the kind of guy you want leading your organization and you stick with him through the growing pains. Someone like BIll Cowher would probably have success again. But those coaches are near impossible to find because if they are successful the will have a job.

    I didn’t think I’d be as down on our team this year as I am. Isn’t it time the Jets
    – eg the coaching staff and many of the players – stopped competing with Saturday Night Live and established some discipline? If a player (from Sanchez to Holmes) isn’t performing, get someone in the lineup who’ll put out 100% and will perform as a PRO. This is crunch t ime. We’re still in a good position, but if the offense doesn’t make the plays (as do the defense and special teams!), then it’s another year watching the Giants and the P:ats in the playoffs (ugh!).

    They need to harden up as a team. You cannot have guys laughing on the sidelines in these types of games. They need more of a discipline style approach with the coaching. Simply shooting your mouth off about it’s time to win the superbowl and barely beating teams at the last second who have losing records just doesn’t cut it at all. Bill Parcells would never tolerate that nonsense back 10 years ago. They need to start going into these games with a chip on their shoulder and playing with heart. You don’t even see the receivers and Sanchez talking together on the sidelines, which is what a QB and Receiving corp is supposed to do. And enough with these field goals inside the 10 yard line. 4th down and 2 or 3, you go for the touchdown.

    I’ve been a season ticket holder since 1974 and have kept my mouth shut for 35 years, so here is my take on this team: Do your talking on the field where it counts the most. Confidence is one thing but arrogance is something else. Every year people ask me: “So what about those Jets?” I just shrug and walk away because they seem to be their own worst enemy. I am getting to the point where I am running out of “wait until next year” so I am hoping that I live to see them go all the way — some day! Regarding the new stadium, I absolutely hate it. In a real emergency, people would be trampled to death. It is a very bad design and not worth $1.2 billion. As usual the fans are left holding the bag… Grade: F.

    And Holmes needs to stop with these celebrations on every first down catch he makes. Once in a while is ok, but constantly doing this looks pretty stupid, especially after he dropped that easy pass in the endzone. You want confident, not cocky players on your team. Let Gholston steal 50 million from another team and not produce a sack in 3 years. How many tackles does he have in his entire 3 year career? A huge 37 tackles in 3 years. 50 million for 37 tackes in 3 years. Great job MT, beautiful job in your draft choice. The other linebacker Mayo who was drafted by NE AFTER Gholston has done much better. Just let Gholston go after this season and draft players who know how to play the game.

    Let me ask a general question to Spicer and a few others who refuse to acknowledge where the “real” problem lies. Do you think for one minute we would see the same results, with the same O line, and all the same players we have on this team, and that includes the OC as well, if Tom Brady were behind center instead of Sanchez???? No spicer, I am not comparing Brady to MS just making a major point about where our main problem is. I concede the fact there are other areas that need to be cleaned up, I am not wearing blinders, but think hard about the answer to my question.

    The best pass rusher the Jets ever had in this decade was John Abraham, who also took a pay cut when he was asked of it many years ago, and they trade him away. He’s having a great year with 11 sacks in Atlanta. Very happy for Abraham, he deserves it. How in the world can you trade away a playmaker like that? What in the world could MT be thinking trading away John Abraham? You never trade away excellent players that you draft. You keep them on the team for as long as possible. Actually they let go all of their playmakers, Santana Moss, Leon Washington, John Abraham, they let them all go. Time for a NEW GENERAL MANAGER.

Many say it takes 2-3 years before they truly develop the feel for the game, and Sanchez is getting better, it would help if the front line can protect him and give him the chance to set a play up!! and as of late the receiver’s had a case of Butter fingers?? “common” that sweet pass to Santonio Holmes for the T.D would have giving the JETS the tie and the momentum.I am sick of the Play calling with B.S the past few seasons, they need to win 2-3 to secure the playoffs.lets just get in and go from there!!!

    LOL You have to love those 2 runs up the middle for a gain of a yard or two. It’s common sense, toss the ball downfield at least 6 or 8 times a game and attempt a vertical attack. Isn’t that the point of football? What in the world are these coaches thinking. LOL

    It’s almost laughable. As I was watching the Miami game I was saying to myself this last minute winning is going to catch up to them, and it did. They deserved to lose and looked like a pathetic team for most of the game. The defense looked better than the offense.

    The new stadium is nice because it’s brand new, but people who work there say the design is really not that great and other stadiums around the country are much nicer. They have had their own stadium and not sharing it with the Giants. The good things are that it’s not called giants stadium anymore and also that it’s brand new. Other than that, yes I completely concur with the other person who said it’s not worth 1.5 billion. Ryan’s arrogance needs to stop. “And the Jets lose their swagger.” It was a long time coming. Ryan, read this board Ryan and learn something for once. We don’t really care that you say it’s time to win the superbowl. We don’t care for your stupid talk anymore. Just have your team ready to show up on game day and play.

    Some great comments I think. The Jets practically dominated against the Dolphins, but lost. I agree with: run from different sets, ditch the wildcat, EXECUTE a screen (are these not practiced enough or what?), run a DRAW, try a shovel pass, where in the world was the pitch out??? How many times has that played failed in the last 2 years – zero? I could not for the life of me understand the countless first down runs between the tackles… something is up there. Just awful to lose a game with such a dominating D performance. And BTW – all I see here is how bad Sanchez is – well – what about Henne? Thank goodness we don’t have him –
    Jets are still a couple of years of O maturity away and a beast of a down lineman.

    Alex G, you say that Sanchez is “getting better” what do you base that statement on? If you look at the stats throughout the season it is crystal clear they suggest otherwise, he is in fact regressing. Do you remember a point in the season where he had 8TDs and 0 INTs? Well take a good look at his line now. That to me is not improving, that is not even status quo it is clearly regressing. I don’t think anyone here is saying cut him at this point in time, but at the same time,history has taught us it is definitely something that can happen down the road, see Jamarcus Russell, Akili Smith, David Carr, etc. They all were high picks with big contracts, what do they all have in common?

    If Erik Ainge were the QB we would be a Super-Bowl caliber team. Pure and simple. Evidently Ryan is so determined to prove he was right to give an inferior QB all this playing time that he’d rather lose his job than admit he was wrong. Numerous posters on here in the past have commented on how far superior Ainge looked to any of our other QBs the last time he got to play, and the Two Live Stus said he should be the starter a year ago because of how much better than Sanchez he looked in the preseason. I know he had the painkiller issue in preseason but I would assume that’s done now? It’s just mind-boggling to me that he hasn’t been given a shot.

    I’m giving up after 30 years of same old jets. I don’t understand why the Jets always have this problem. I’ve never reaped a profit from this team. I give up. The line can’t protect the quarterback. They destroyed Chad Pennington. The receivers can’t get open. the receivers can’t catch the ball. The quarterback can’t figure out that all he has to do is move the chains like Tom Brady does. In fact the quarterback is the best man on the opponent’s team. I’ve lost all reason for being a fan. You have the quality players. On defense you can’t rush the quarterback and take away his time to throw so he is able to throw all day long. the only reason you miss an extra point is it gets blocked. I’m done. Not worth it. Good Bye Jets. I was faithful.

    all the sanchez bashers were invisible when he had late game winning drives..what happened is very simple..the team was 9-2, broke your heart in new england then lost a close one vs miami..sanchez was chased all game in both contests..stop bashing sanchez, he’s still very young and has shown flashes this year..unfortunately, the elements that took them deep last year are gone now..(healthy o line and running game)..still have a chance, as pitt and bal look beatable..all we have to do is water down game plan like last year and EXECUTE run game..d will always be there keeping us in it..nobody here expected run last year..get back to basics

    You can not blame Sanchez entirely, his very expensive offensive line has not been giving him anytime at all no matter who they’ve played, receivers are dropping balls all the time and Shotty is an awful offensive coordinator. If the Jets had not come back last year at the end of the season after Rex took a more “proactive role in the offensive,” Shotty wouldn’t have a job with them this year. He has some good ideas but he never seems to have a plan, it doesn’t seem that he has the defense scouted at all there always on their heals. Sanchez has some great abilities but Shotty doesn’t seem to call those types of plays and thats when the offenses struggle. I

    Erik Ainge isn’t even on the roster. Sanchez is just a hair above a 50 percent passer says his 30 games in the NFL. That means one in two balls he attempts will hit the turf. It would be hard for any OC to make that super successful competitive football. Most of his struggles are in deeper patterns. I think everyone has seen him under throw Braylon. I also believe BE needs a contract extension immediately. He was a star early on when he was the primary receiver. I wish DREW’s post was from Drew of the past, I found it humorous. I think the biggest problem is Rex’s ignorance of the offense. It seems he rarely knows what’s going on, yet has power to bench a guy. Schotty, please use the FB we drafted as a TE and let him and T-Rich open holes.

    I feel your pain Waldo. To just be a fan on the inside people would accuse us of not supporting our team. They don’t know what it’s like being “green”. We know how to temper our enthusiasm. Then something happens the team lifts its head up and gives us reason to be optimistic. Then we let down our guard and puff out our chest with pride only to have the hammer drop again. Because of what they did last year and the motivational mouth of Rex we really started to believe. Now as we look at the total body of work we can see we’ve been fooled again!

    I wouldn’t give up guys – this team is close. We need a difference maker on the D line. And probably a physical safety. Otherwise this is a pretty loaded team. If Sanchez can get better at the short throws (and by that I mean more accurate) and the offense is run by someone other than Schotty (and sorry but I never liked him even when the Jets were winning) this team can compete for years. They have to realize that the short throws are just like runs now. You don’t have to lead the league in rushing to win in the NFL – but you have to be ABLE to run. I just hope Rex realizes he needs to shut up a bit to last in the job because come on, he is great – who hasn’t enjoyed this? Maybe not the SB this year, but we are close.

    I would love to see Brad Smith have more quarterback time. He is an outstanding athlete and is the “go to” guy for the Jets in a lot of positions. He recently indicated that he really misses being a quarterback so why not give him a shot?
    Unfortunately, it is late in the season to switch to a new QB but it would be interesting to put him in for a brief period and see what he can do. I have no problem with Sanchez but sometimes you have to take a step back to go 2 steps forward. Google Smith’s stats as QB for his college days at Missouri and you will be floored at his achievements. He is one hell of an athlete.. I am confident he’d be one hell of a quarterback — we need him!.

    All this negativity, and I have to admit that I have been a part of it. It would be nice to hear something positive, BUT sorry, can’t do it. Lets talk about Sanchez:
    Warm weather kid from southern California. Started , what was it, 12 or 13 games for USC (thats right USC) a proven powerhouse team, thats it !
    Highly touted basically because of his team . Drafted by a cold weather team and thrown into the mix immediately. What were they thinking ? He can’t handle the cold, thats a fact. But it’s too late now, the Jets have commited to this guy and we all have to live with that. I really hope a few years from now I feel different but this is not the next Montana, Marino or Elway – please prove me wrong !
