CHREBET: How About Those Jets?

Posted by Wayne Chrebet on December 23, 2010 – 9:05 am

Wayne Chrebet’s 16th blog of the season for newyorkjets.com:

Huge win on the road in a place that we’ve never won before. A lot of questions got answered from this win:

1. Can the Jets win on the road in a hostile environment?

2. Can they do it vs. a good team?

3. Can they bounce back after two tough losses?

4. Can Sanchez play in a pressure game, and can he do it in tough weather conditions?

5. Can Schottenheimer get the offense rolling like earlier in the year?

The answer is “yes” to all these questions.

Love the naked bootleg on Sanchez’s touchdown and the direct snap to Tomlinson. Pittsburgh didn’t give this game away. They played good football. The Jets earned this one — offense, defense, and special teams.

I sure hope that Brad Smith gets a chance to go to the Pro Bowl. I think he deserves it. What a way to start a game like this one. Another big factor was the punter, Steve Weatherford. He did a great job. His punt in the fourth quarter put the Steelers inside their 5-yard line. That enabled the Jets to get the safety on them, which was huge because then the Steelers had to get a touchdown instead of a field goal.

It looked like the old Jason Taylor on that safety. He looked like he got shot out of a cannon and he just ragdolled the running back. Great play.

The defense played a good game. It was nerve-wracking at the end but they made the plays when they needed to. It’s tough when you’re only rushing three guys and dropping eight into coverage. Giving a quarterback like Ben that much time is tough to stop. Whether you felt the Jets should have blitzed or played coverage doesn’t matter. The end result is what matters. Two plays on the 10-yard line with 9 seconds left. I’ve said it a couple of times this year. These are the games that we didn’t win in the past. These coaches and players are tough, they welcome the challenge. Of course everybody would have liked the defense to stop them before they got downfield but you have to admit, that last 9 seconds was exciting. Nailbiting, but exciting.

So the defense has had to make the play to the win the game on the last play as had the offense. You can’t put a value on having already been in that situation and succeeding going into the playoffs. Maybe I’m jumping the gun but all the Jets have to do is win one game or Jacksonville or the Colts need to lose one. I don’t care who those two teams are playing. You want to win your way into the playoffs and I believe they will.

Chicago would be a great place to do it this week. Another playoff-caliber team — they already clinched their division Monday night — and another hostile environment. Even though the Bears manhandled the Vikings, they are still a beatable team. Cutler is a pretty good quarterback but will throw his share of picks. He has a great arm. Their defense is stacked. The addition of Julius Peppers has made everybody on their defensive unit better. He draws a lot of attention and makes a ton of plays.

The key — the big key — to the game is controlling Devin Hester. Statistically he is the best return man to play the game. At any given time he can score. Punt, kickoff, and now he plays offense. Scary thought. I know Coach Westhoff will have something special for him.

I checked the weather for this week. Snow every day this week and low 20s Sunday. And the wind whips through that stadium. Going to be another hard-hitting game. A great one to watch.

To everybody who reads this blog, Happy Holidays to you and yours. I read and appreciate all your comments every week and just wanted to say I’m glad you like it and I’m looking forward to continuing it well into January. Go Jets!

    The only reason why I thought they had a chance is that they were on the road,even w/ past history in Pittsburgh. Got to tighten up the pass rush, more so the tackling in the secondary

    Winning in Pitt last week to me was similar to when you guys had to have a must win in NE after the Chi loss in 02. Even tougher because Pitt is much better than that 02 Pats team.
    Totally agree about Hester. The Bears can’t protect Cutler and the Jets should be able to get to him and force him into some mistakes and just maybe we get a few picks this week. They are due for some for sure. Still can’t believe they only have 7 for the year. The D has to give the Jets some good field position and a short field this week.
    One thing i am very concerned about is Pitt showed you can run outside on the Jets. Hope they get them fixed in practice this week
    Wayne, Happy Holidays to you and your family.

    I really do like ready your articles Wayne and its good to see you in my section during the game especially during those cold conditions this month. I thought over all the boys played well, but what I hope to see Sunday is more of a pass rush and not to many running lanes for the QB. This passed game I think if Ben was more mobile he could have run when the outside rushers were going up field and no one was filling in those gaps leaving wide open lanes. What do you think? Good holidays to you and yours!

    Have enjoyed reading your take each week. It’s been exciting to watch this team play week after week. Even though they keep me on the edge of my seat. Now we have to go to Chicago and beat down the Bears. With good play calling from Schotty, stopping Hester and getting to Cutler to keep him off balance it should be another great game. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

    Let’s Go JETS!

Good to see that you are keeping your fingers on the pulse of your old team. As Greg Buttle told me when I met him, once a Jet, always a Jet. Start in Green & White and leave in Green & White. We’ve got the Bears covered! J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets. Wishing you and yours a very Happy & Healthy Holiday Season.

    As usual, great insight. I’m a little concerned with Sanchez’ shoulder tear, but he’s a trooper and says he’s fine. A real trooper. Jumpin gee hosifats…he could have played at State! Tough guy that Sanchez. Reminds me of Ray Nash one tough cookie too. We’ll beat the Bears because it’s kismet. Like Husk always says: “A donut without a hole os just a danish.”…God bless…Scrappy.

    I’d bet the words rolled out like a ball point pen on this weeks blog Wayne .
    Its nice that you finally let us know you are reading our comments . A positive in this game is I think the defense may be more effective verses Cutler because he is not going to present us with the style of Big Ben extending the play. I watched the NFLN replay and it was nice to see Coach Braylon Edwards encourage Rex to go for it something I espoused this year, letting the players call plays that they feel will be effective in game situations because they will have their heart into that play and it worked.

    Good blog Wayne. Your exactly right. We are winning the games we used to lose. Is Rex the first coach not to believe the “same old Jets” tag? Although he was just a kid at the time, Rex is the first person to coach the Jets that experienced the Super Bowl Jets attitude. He was in the “Champions ” locker room. He absorbed that attitude of “we are gunna win, Guaranteed”. NY sports was amazing in those days. Mets, Knicks, As a kid I figured it would always be like that…..40 years later…..GO JETS!!!

    Wayne, I think the Jets proved they can win on the road prior to the game in Pit. I think they have proved that over the past few years, maybe more, and the fact they had not won in Pittsburgh before actually meant nothing. This upcoming game vs the Bears will be another big game, the Bears are a good team, not an elite one, it will be yet another close game and if the Jets can execute on the field like they did in Pittsburgh they can win this game easily. I don’t want to see Shotty wear out those short 1st down passes, but I sure hope he has them in the mix again this week, they are just as effective as a run, but much less predictable.

    Amazing win on the road, I must admit I was starting to think we would never win in Pittsburgh. Also very happy to see the offense back on track.

    Glad to hear that you’ll keep the blog going well int January, thanks & happy holidays to you & yours.
    I agree almost entirely with your analysis of the last game. The Jury is still out on how well the O is rolling. Loved the bootleg & the snap to LT. I wish Schotty had called a similar play instead of a pass on 3rd & 3 in the last Jets’ possession; the incomplete pass was like giving the Steelers a free timeout & extra possession. A 1st down there would have sealed the game. Not to mention the illegal man downfield penalty that was called. That doesn’t happen on a run. I’d like to see Keller or Brad Smith, put in motion from the slot, take a direct snap & run around end on 3rd & short yardage. The chains would move.

    We all sure will be seeing alot of punts kicked out of bounds bc Jets Offense, not very good to say the least guys… take notes NYJ D, bc a real DEFENSE is going to emBEARass the J E T S. No playoff clinching for you guys this sunday. Sorry… :’(

    Wayne…..Merry christmas and happy holidays. Huge win for the Jets last week. Season saving win. Says a lot about the teams character to go into Pitt and pull out a win. Game was 17-10 Pitt in the 3rd Qtr. Jets scored 12 unanswered points and Pitt failed to score again. The Bears game is similar to the Pitt game in a lot of ways. Good Defense, Decent Offense – cant let the QB beat you. We can get to Cutler as the Bear O-line is not good. I expect lots of disguised blitz pacakages. Keep control of Hester and please do not punt to the guy. I believe the Jets continue with the momentum from the win in Pitt and win in soldier Field. We clinch a playoff spot and begin with the next phase of the teams success.

    Ah- The life of a Jet fan- just when you think they are on the brink of failure they bounce back with a tough win. It’s great and nerve wracking at the same time. Nice to see Taylor play a big game and Braylon made some tough catches over the middle. We ran the ball a little bit better although you can’t run well on the steelers. Well- The Jets are not the Vikings- They will show up this sunday and I see a similar type game- 21-17 Jets.. Just make sure we don’t have a Giant kicker breakdown and keep the ball away from Hester.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

    Merry Christmas JETS Fans. I see it this way, as many of you do, special teams (keeping the ball out of DH hands,and the JETS making plays) and forcing Cutler to turn the ball over. We should expect a close game, but the JETS are better, they should win. By the way, any one watch the replay of the JETS VS Steelers on NFL network, so much respect for LT, pumping up the players like he did, and believe it or not Braylon Edwards convinced Rex to go for it on the 4th and 1 bootleg.. Wayne your blogs have been great all year, glad to see you read the comments, to all of JETS Nation, Merry Christmas.. Go JETS. beat da Bears..

    Boy, I miss seeing you on that field playing, you were tough as nails! The way I see it, it all comes down to wins; who cares if it’s by one point. I love this team win or lose. The Jets have a knack of making games exciting, I remember that famous Monday night game which you were part of; you got that critical third down then Jumbo got that TD talk about nail-biter. Wayne, the only thing that worries me is that the “O” is not putting up enough points; against a team like the Colts that’s going to be an issue. However, this win made my son who is in Afghanistan very happy that boy loves his Jets! Wayne, I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    Where in thundering tarnation was our defense? They looked like the practise squad from State! Wish Husk and I could have suited up. Dang! Blankety Blank, we should have won that game! If you were suited we would have won the dang thing. Mother of Pearl on a Hershey Bar…we had it. Like Husk always says: “A flute with no holes isn’t a flute. Go Jets!…God Bless…Scrappy.

    Hi Wayne,

    You are the man. I tell my boys, who are 8 and 5 years old, all about you, and how you are my favorite Jet of all time, because of the way you played the game. I have many of your games on VHS that I have showed them, including the incredible win over Tampa Bay, when Martin tossed you that touchdown. What a catch! My boys are Jets fans for life, and hopefully their children too. Merry Christmas, and blessings to you and your family…
