Offense Struggles in Primetime vs. the Ravens

Posted by Eric Allen on October 2, 2011 – 11:55 pm

It was a frightful night for the Jets offense tonight in Baltimore. A month before Halloween and with the Ravens dressed in all black, the hosts tormented the visitors with four takeaways of Mark Sanchez — three of which were returned for touchdowns in a 34-17 Ravens triumph.

Without ailing C Nick Mangold, the Jets’ first offensive snap started the horrors. Rookie Colin Baxter got the ball back to Sanchez without any problems, but the third-year QB was given an unwelcome greeting from All-Everything S Ed Reed. LT D’Brickashaw Ferguson blocked Terrell Suggs on his inside rush, leaving Reed a free line to Sanchez. Reed knocked the ball out and ILB Jameel McClain scooped up the loose change for an easy 6-yard score.

“The protection is supposed to pick that one up,” Sanchez said.  “We just had a miscue and Ed made a great play, coming off the edge on the weak side.  That’s stuff we have to account for and we will moving forward.”

Down just 10-7, Baxter and Sanchez couldn’t complete a clean snap on the Jets’ second possession. Fortunately Shonn Green recovered, but the damage was just delayed. Baxter appeared to get a decent toss to Sanchez in the shotgun early in the second, but the latter couldn’t hang on and LB Paul Kruger recovered at the Jets’ 23. Four plays later, the Ravens made it a 20-7 game on Billy Cundiff’s 38-yard field goal.

Then the Jets went to their emergency plan up front, shifting LG Matt Slauson over to C, removing Baxter from the lineup and inserting Vladimir Ducasse to LG. Haloti Ngata briefly received double-team attention from Ferguson and Ducasse on the outside, but Ngata got free around the end and got another blindside shot on Sanchez. This one was vicious and resulted in another scoop and score as OLB Jarrett Johnson went in from 26 yards out. The game was almost out of hand at 27-7.

But somewhat remarkably, the Green & White still were in the thick of things early in the third. Bolstered by a pair of return touchdowns themselves, the score was 27-17 and Aaron Maybin’s first career sacks and a subsequent Marcus Dixon fumble recovery should have had the Jets at business at the Ravens’ 26. With Baxter back at center this time, Sanchez went play action and fired a ball out to Santonio Holmes. It never got there as CB Lardarius Webb jumped the route, intercepted and ran for an easy 73-yard TD.

“I’m turning my back to the defense and they had a pretty good call on,” Sanchez said.  “I’m trying to get the ball out.  At the end of the day, you just sail it out of bounds.  But they made a pretty good play on it.  They had a pretty good scheme for it.  There are no excuses for interceptions.  You can’t have them — especially in that situation.  You either take the sack or try to throw it of bounds.”

Sanchez had one of his toughest nights as a pro, completing 11 of 35 for 119 yards with a 30.5 passer rating and taking a number of licks in the process.  He has thrown six TDs this season, but his overall turnover total stamds at nine because he’s lost four fumbles and has been intercepted five times.

“He struggled mightily,” said head coach Rex Ryan of Sanchez.  “There’s no question about it… It wasn’t his best day — that’s for sure.   But he’s our quarterback and I believe in him.”

As expected, the Jets struggled to get much on the ground as Shonn Greene was the club’s leading rusher with 23 yards on 10 carries .

A sliver of good news is the Jets will face off against a beleaguered Patriots defense in Week 5.  Also in his postgame news conference, Ryan indicated Mangold might be back in the lineup for the huge divisional clash.

“He’s getting better guys and I’m hopeful he’ll play this weekend,” Ryan said of the player who made the trip but was held out with a high ankle sprain.

    whats sad you cant even bench sanchez, the depth of the team on both sides of the ball is bad. Sanchez cant throw the line under the bus, like he did on the post game show, I think the kid got to look in the mirror! And get a back up!

    Mark got his tail whooped, but it wouldn’t have matter if Johnny U was back there, that OL would have gotten him killed. As I said early, Mark is going to earn his money this year………….Believe it or not the coming game will be the easiest of the 3 road games……Tom Brady not withstanding……Pretty simple, get to Brady and you beat them……..Their defense is more than suspect.

    One of the worst offensive performances by any Jet team. A good team shouldn’t collapse like this because the starting center is out. Besides; even in earlie games with Mangold still in the lineup, the o-line looked inept and confused. Sanchez , even the few times he had protection was absolutely horrible. Mc Knight, Wilkerson and Maybin were the only positives. What a disappointing night! I felt like the clock had been turned back to the Kotie days!
    I hope Rex stops talking about SB now. The way this offense plays we’ll be lucky to end up eight and eight.

    Couple of things that we can take away from this game, Ravens defense clearly outplayed. Schottenheimer has got to go, but of course that’s not going to happen…..sigh. O-line needs some serious help and lastly, this is not a super-bowl caliber team or at least they’re just not playing like one yet. It hurts to even think that. I think we can rebound vs. NE like we did last year after facing Baltimore, especially now with Mangold most likely coming back. I tip my hat off to Joe McKnight and Aaron Maybin.

    O-Line needs help. Hopefully Mangold comes back strong after N.E. game. we need to get running game going this week and Schotty and Sanchez need to be smarter , faster and more efficient from here on in We cannot give up sacks and fumbles all the time. D has issues as well. .McKnight looked good. Wasn’t Baxters fault at center. Cumiulative poor effort and physicallity on both sides of ball. Out played and Out-coached.
    McFadden,Rice and Ravens D are formidable competitors…lets hope we play them again in Playoffs and end them.

    an one more point on depth, the vets they let go, was pretty much your team leaders, and replaced them with token team captains. Hey Rex and Mike its not working, T. Rich, Shaun Ellis, and Jenkins were a big part of the previous seasons success, even hurt Jenkins gave them their defensive identity. I wont even start w/ Shotenheimer, just tired of bashing him, Sanchez needs to learn to play like every game is a playoff game and he will be alright, but he was not groomed like the guy in New England

    38 yards rushing ? Mark 11 for 34 0 for 11 in third ? really?…LOL…would like to thank defence tho for keeping it some what watchable but after the pick six they gave up and quit to …dont blame them

  11. By Christopher on Oct 3, 2011 | Reply

    This really has to be blamed on Mike T for not addressing the O-line. No depth at all. Doesn’t help that Mark Sanchez isn’t very good and Shotty is calling the plays. No more Faneca and Woody and now the O-line is garbage. Ducasse, Slauson, Hunter hasn’t quite panned out.

    The LB’s, except Harris need to be released and get new speed guys in there. Pace is on pace for his worst year ever. Scott is lost. To think we let J. Abraham and J Vilma off this team.

    We need a safety. Leornard is ok and Smith is ok, but we need a playmaker. Oh wait we had Kerry Rhodes but let him go.

    Time to clean house (start with Mike T and on down, not counting players) and start over. Hire Mike Westhoff as the head coach and bring in all new staff.

    What Mr. T and Rex did or rather didn’t do in the face of Mangold’s injury easily makes the list of Top Ten Stupidest Moves in Jets History. I applaud Jane McManus for flat-out stating the obvious, that we shoulda signed a vet C the minute NM got hurt because if we had by now we’d have “sewn him into the lineup.” Instead Mr. T and Rex gave away two important early games for no reason at all that I’ve read or heard. To see us unable to even line up and snap the ball half the time, then start improvising with Slauson and Ducasse brought to mind not the Jets but the ’62 Mets. Let’s see some of the Rex-is-God loyalists spin this one, this game looked like he didn’t have a thing in his head or drawn up on the boards to help us win this game.

    And Schotty fans: What’d I just say about the moronic WR screens that he still loves for some bizarre reason? A 73-yd pick-6 on one of those cost us the game, all the more amazingly because on the series before the same play to the other side almost got picked off. What’d I say after Sanchez’s INT vs OAK following Kerley’s return re how MS should be ordered to stay cool after a momentum-shifting D or ST play? What’d I say about us maybe going 7-9/8-8/9-7 given some of these weaknesses? Right now I can see us losing 5 out of the next 6 games and being out of it before Thanksgiving. But of course, an O that scores 3 pts against another D with several starting DBs out CAN’T be blamed on the OC! In any sane universe, Schotty’d be fired this AM.

    2 games on the road and 2 losses. Rex says he has no clue except the other team outplayed the Jets.
    ISN’T TIME TO GO BACK TO POUND THE FOOTBALL? iF sHONN gREENE CANNOT get more than 2 or 3 yards, maybe we go back to LT and use Shonn as the 2nd or 3rd RB.
    There is no excuse for the Offensive Line. Baxter should be released and a quality backup for Mangold is a must.
    Ducasse should be gone, he is not up to NFL standards, we made a mistake in keeping him.
    Mark Sanchez is a better quarterback, but he needs to have a substantial running option.
    Maybe, rex, when Mark is struggling, you should go to Brunell. Also it is necessary to have more adaptions on the game plan in the second half.
    I think these 2 games were coaching losses.

    And just for the record, patient, rational, level-headed Jet fans, McKnight has 4 kickoff returns for 212 yds, a 53-yd average, with 1 TD, the longest kickoff return in Jet history. That’s the dude that we shoulda cut last August.

    First play on offense MS gets hit in the hand after a pump fake But while his hand was moving forward, Then on another excellent example MS gets hit again while his arm was coming forward, admottedly this one was closer, but factor in the fact that the defender hit MS helmet first, I do believe that after the replay it should have been overturned, add in the two times our punter was hit after the punt … WOW

    Wow, could that have been any more painful to watch? By the end of the first qtr I wasn’t wondering if we would lose, just by how much. I thought we should have just knelt down three times and punted….our D was our best O tonight. The only thing as bad as watching our offense was watching theirs (after the 1st qtr…) Flacco stinks and gave his best effort to keep us in the game. Alas, we stunk more… who are the best O Linemen in the next draft?

  23. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom on Oct 3, 2011 | Reply

    Viveca, I agree with everything in your post especially your point that the O line didn’t even look that good when Mangold was playing, so we got a real problem. Interesting to hear about Rex talking to Sanchez in the locker room, MS sounding shell-shocked but also indirectly calling out the O line, Holmes calling out both the O line and MS, and Revis saying that there isn’t much “excitement” in the locker room now. I’m not upset by this ’cause I think the Jets, and some folks who cover them and some of their fans, are in the grip of denial. We didn’t draft for some of our needs, we have an OC who’s inept, and a HC who seems to know less about O than some of our fans. This team’s in trouble and that’s why I’d welcome some real changes soon.

    There is a serious lack of talent up front. That game was like a College team vs NFL teaml.
    And don’t rationalize by thinking that Mangold would have made a difference, he would not.
    Again the team is falling apart and we have woeful draft picks like Ducass to fill in.

    Where is Kellen Clemens? Where is Powell? If every throw wasn’t so telegraphed, I’d say work the RB screen and every slant in the book. Ravens were throwing the kitchen sink at Sanchez. Which means he should have found the open man with a read. But he is clueless, emotionless, and unable to throw to a WR running a route. The offense dictates the defensive plays. I’d like to see how many snaps the defense has had to endure.. Can’t say I didn’t expect this, but a pass first, run allowing team is exactly the formula to get a coach fired.. Again, no safety play and a soft defense.. Go Jets

    I said it last week the OL will get Sanchez kllled; the LB and overall defensive speed is doesn’t exist; WR are old and slow and Shot is as predictable as cheap toilet paper. Tannenbum nad Ryna have got to stop chasing free agents and draft draft draft talent. If you look at the Ravens it’s all about drafting with them. They have super talent on defense. The JETS have been exposed as old and overrated this year. They better start “coaching” and stop yapping. Time to see what they’re truly made of. I don’t give this team better than 8-8, maybe worse if Sanchez sooner or later isn’t slaughtered by their lack of talent and depth in this year’s OL. Hate to say it don’t want to say it but SOJ so far after four games.

    No offense can operate with out a good offense line. Look at the Steelers they have OL problems and they cant run the ball and Big Ben has been fumbling and throwing interceptions. Even before Mangold was hurt this line couldn’t block. Slauson and Hunter are backups at best. Jets should have gotten some veteran OL . Why didnt we look into Gurode when the Cowboys released them or Sean O’hara? They at least have experience. All summer Ryan was gushing over this line saying how good it was. Really?!

  29. By no one listens to Blinka on Oct 3, 2011 | Reply

    No one cares, but here are my further thoughts.

    Last year power formation included Hunter and T. Rich. Who are they using this year? Conner and who else? Maybe Conner can’t do the job. It’s not a question of can he block, it’s a question of does he know who to block. And not to pile on the poor kid, but they don’t even use Ducasse in the power formation.
    When you gamble a 2nd round pick on a kid from a small program, you better know what your doing. Damn, it’s going to be a long time until next season.

    MR.T gambled & lost big time he did not resign Woody & thought he could just sign Hunter on the cheap. Well it is blowing up in your face now cause Hunter is terrible & Duccasse I can already say without a doubt the guy is a BUST. Once we lost Turner he should have signed a o lineman right away. When Cumberland went down & they put Turner on the IR I said they need 2 take those 2 spots & sign 2 O linemane right away. I guess MR.T didnt think that it was a priority.

    Disgraceful performance. The on field mistakes are one thing, but how about looking a bit deeper at the always predictable offensive schemes. This team doesn’t have the physical skills to dominate at will so there needs to be some adjustment in the offensive play calling I hope this is Shotty’s last rodeo.

  35. By Chicago Bob on Oct 3, 2011 | Reply

    Let’s be realistic, this is not a Super Bowl caliber team – way too many holes. Both Slausen and Hunter are backups on the OL and the same can be said for Pouha and Devito on the DL – both of these guys give a great effort however neither one of them creates any kind of push – every pass play you watch, both of them are stuck right on the line and go nowhere. Drafting Wilkerson was the right thing – the Jets REALLY need for Ellis to develop into a quality NT. It was interesting to see the Ravens had two castoffs (Gurode and McKinnie) starting on their OL and we still could not pressure the QB. Fortunately when the draft comes up next year, we have the option of taking a G or an OT as both are desperately needed.

    Time to take the ball out of Sanchez’ hands. He is playing like a rookie again. Go back to ground and pound. OK, so if his back is to the left side BACKPEDDLE like Joe Willie used to do – see the whole field. Why wasn’t the shotgun used more? To defeat the ravens d-line I would have pitched out or used quick hitting run plays or short passes. How about bring D-Woodie back? This o-line is a mess right now – they’re not going anywhere.

  38. By ArtSoCal on Oct 3, 2011 | Reply

    At last Wed’s press conference, Sanchez stated the need of quickly getting rid of the ball under pressure. That didn’t sound like the optimum recipe for success to me. I immediately envisioned a lot of short pass incompletions because of receivers who would not be ready. Brunell should’ve played the 2Nd half for comparison sake. If he had had the same results, we’d know the O strategy had some major responsibility for this loss.

    I think this was the worst offenseive performance since rex has taken over. He needs to shut his mouth and fix his team. Get an O-line that can protect MS. He is a very good quaterback but cant do it with no protection. No qb can. But i think we will fix these problems and move on. But schotenheimer should be fired ive said it for a long time. He is just horrible and needs to go.

    We don’t have a running identity because of no O-line depth. I think Slauson does a good job, not sure why people don’t support him too often. However, Hunter is playing horrible and I don’t understand why they put it Ducasse at all, he almost got Sanchez killed again and was responsible for the HalotI Ngata fumble. As a rookie, I thought Colin Baxter held his own, yes he didn’t snap the ball right once or twice, but you can’t blame the kid, he was just put in there. It also hurts us that Rob Turners been put on IR, and wait, who was the reason that Turner was injured in the first place?? Vlad Ducasse! of course it was, just give up on Ducasse T, admit it you messed up by drafting him, and for gods sake, please pick up O’Hara or Seubert.

    Relax Jet Fans we have been through worse. The line was having problems from the beginning trying to jell with turner and now Mangold is hurt. It is not Greens fault. The line cannot puncany holes for him. As for sanchez, yes he has to be more accurate and make smarter decisions, but without a line any quarterback would have problems. I blame a lot on Shotty. His plays are too predictable and teams know exactly when we are going to throw and run and where we are running too.We are missing TRich Badly, he kept the offense togeather and led the running game. We are 2and2 and we will get better this is the hardest part of our season. The patriots season will get harder too. It is a long season and Big Rex will get things going. Trust him.

    2 Weeks in a row, a big play sets us up within FG range and on 1st down Mark throws a pick. Maybe next time just call the kneel down play and kick the FG, would have at least been a better result.

    Mark’s comments after the game look like he had to try hard to take the blame, but couldn’t resist calling out the O-line and playcalling. Can’t blame him though, but bottom line is Mark needs to step up and eliminate turnovers.

    Rex looked like he was crying, again. I like Rex, but when you talk it up so much, when their is an epic failure, like this year, someone needs to take the blame and it starts with Mike T and Rex. If I was Woody, I would put their jobs on the line with next week.

    This loss and last week’s are directly the fault of the front office for not getting an experienced center as soon as Mangold got hurt. Throwing an inexperienced kid like Baxter to the wolves was insane.

    Sanchez is a complete and utter disaster period end of story. After playing the first tough defense of the season and at the 1/4 mark…no pun intended…he is ranked at the bottom of the pile yet again. He started the game with that “deer in the headlights” look. Sanchez played scared all night it was embarrassing!
    I suggested we sign Gurode as soon as the Cowboys released him he played great for the Ravens last night.
    Making Baxter the “scapegoat” was a joke the ball hit Sanchez right in the hands both times.
    Why is Ducasse even on the roster?
    That is what a defense with speed looks like anyone see the difference?
    Maybin a strip sack and almost another and did well on special teams. Great job kid! Defense played well enough to win.

    The JETS offensive line is built for running game by it’s inabillity to pass block.This is becuse ther are easily confused by any coach who has a good sceme to expose their lack of speed and bad foot work as well as their inablilty getting good leverage to hold their ground or fire out on the running gameI .
    JET fan back to theTtitan days.Stats mean nothing when get beat in the trenches.They have drafed poorly ithe offensive and defensive line.

    Very telling that Holmes said Sanchez needs to do a better job making the reads. Geee Wizzzz what have I been saying for years….Shotty is not throwing the ball or fumbling it for that matter! Sanchez DOES NOT make the players better around him he is not a Franchise QB not an elite QB he is what he is a bottom feeder just like his ranks since he started!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My first post did not make the board so I am reposting this. The O line is GARBAGE Wayne Hunter is a backup at best. Slauson is okay & Brandon Moore I think is still hurting from his hip surgery because he does not look like himself. I can not stress how much they miss Mangold. I do not care if Brady was our QB & McFadden was our RB behind that line nobody is doing anything. Greene & LT are hit the second they touch the ball or at best after 2 yards. There are NO HOLES to run thru. The QB everytime he drops back he is under instant pressure. He is getting CRUSHED every game MULTIPLE times a game. Mark will not make it thru the season like this. Look at Brady & Rodgers these guys have good O lines they go whole games without getting hit.

    The Jets miss Braylon & Cothcery they have no one to strecth the field Plax at 34 & Mason at 37. No longer have the speed to get it done. The o line is not pass blocking & the DB’S stay up in Plax & Mason’s face cause they know they do not have the speed to beat them deep. Plax & Mason are not going 2 get any faster so unless the o line gets better really quick it is going to a long year.

    I went down to Baltimore for this game and was very dissapointed with the play of the offense. The run game is irrelevent and without that is is even harder to throw the ball. The amount of three and outs last night was frightening. The D was on the field 3/4ths of the game and where worn down going into the fourth as usual. Even with fatigue the defense played very well and I honestly have no concern with their play. Having an offense run a wedge for the entire fourth quarter is hard to stop when you are fatigued. The concerning part for me was that the defense only gave up 13 points and scored 7 along with 10 from ST. The offense really needs to pick it up especialy Sanchez it his 3rd year and he still can’t avoid giving the ball away.

    i hope i’m wrong, but maybe the Ravens knew something when they didn’t make Rex head coach…he has a great defensive mind but doesn’t seem to have a clue about offense. There is blame ot go around everywhere.
    Mr. T who ignored adressing obvious weaknesses on the o-line. Sanchez who has not progressed and acts immature and scared. The inept O-line, Schottenheimer who keeps calling the same predictable plays. The D.looked good on first and second downs, but repeatedly caved on third and long. Better face the music-this is not a championship team! To turn this around would take a miracle. We almost gave up on Maybin, the only one who has passrush moves. For what? To add another mediocre db to the roster?

    I am a life long jet fan always have been always will be, last night didn’t faze me in the least. I don’t blame Mark at all, well maybe just a little, but the man had absolutely no time, even on hand offs Ravens were in the backfield, I think for too long Jets mgmt has not placed enough emphasis on the “O” line, the Raiders out sized them, the Ravens controlled the line of scrimmage from the start, eliminate the def points and the score changes dramatically, we dont need anymore CB,WR,RB,or TE’s , what we need is a fortress from which, the “O” can sling its arrows and drive its spears, and protect Mark, he cant execute an offense while on the run.

    I’ve been a Jet fan from their inception, and have to say this was one of the most painful games to watch in their history… Again, the Jets had the opportunity to come out at the half and gain some momentum with a score, which would have put them right in it, but again they went three and out… The defense played well, and I don’t agree that they gave up as some have said. It was obvious that they were tired as the Ravens OlL was pushing them all over the field once they started running the ball. If the OL continues to play as they have, MS is not going to last the season. If any more starters get hurt on either side of the ball, the Jets are in for a long season due to lack of depth. Play calling was horrible…

    Sanchez looks like he has fear in his eyes, and not fire. he doesn’t throw to his wide recivers because he doesn’t know how to read a defense to determin who will be open. He panics. Tired of watching this team self-destruct every week. Rex needs to coach this team, prepare them for their next opponent, and forget about his predictions. Joe Willie was right. Rex spends too much time boasting aout his team and not enough time preparing them for a battle. They shouild be 1-3 but Romo pulled a Sanchez and gave it away. Offense is horrible.

    I am not ready to give up on Sanchez just yet. If he can’t get the ball downfield then he is the problem but I think Schotty needs more plays to Holmes and Buress down the field. Enough of the 5 & 10 yard passes the opposing teams defense is crowding the line of scrimmage.

    If Schottenheimer can’t make adjustments to throw the ball down the field and start picking up 15 to 25 yard chunks of real estate, than by all means somebody please plant a for sale sign in his front yard.

    I agree with the deer in the head lights, There was a close up of him before they got to the line and it showed. and then it happened REED!! Thanks Maybin great strip sack. I thought the game was going to turn around BUT, WAIT FOR IT!!! INTERCEPTION. The Jets had them going there for a moment on one of their drives down field, then they slowed down, no hurry up. The Raven would have had to regroup, that would have help greatly at that point. But I agree something has to change, starting with the OC. and the OL. Baxter held his own not all his fault. Defense played well but for how long could they last. REX, Wake up and take control of the Offense.

Joe Flacco played just as bad and I do admit Sanchez needs to be more consistent but it’s not his fault we lost. We lost because of Schottenheimer’s disgusting playcalling and the depth at O-line. Woody Johnson’s afraid to take money out of his pocket, that’s why we haven’t signed any veteran lineman. Use that green, woody, use it and it shall benefit you.

    The O-line is not the only problem. Sanchez is not a good quarterback. Now that we are passing more, it’s obvious. He stares down his receivers, he’s inaccurate, he has no vision, no touch, can’t read defenses, should I keep going? He has more in common with Matt Leinart than just going to USC. Throw in the horrible schemes of Shotty and you have a recipe for losing. But in true Jet fashion, we will continue down this spiral until we lose all of our good players and start from scratch. I hate to say it, but we missed our window of opportunity with this team.

    viveca, I hope you’re wrong too but there’s a lot to chew on in what you say. Obviously everyone wants a smashmouth D but what’s strange is instead of drafting more for D since Rex’s 1st yr, we made some strange picks, taking Powell and the other McKnight instead of an OL guy, LB or S, for instance. By the 2nd yr it was clear that Rex has little input on O, few ideas, and this leaves him to trust Schotty. Whatever the politics behind that, Schotty’s a disaster no matter how you slice it — pts scored, players developed, red zone, big games won or lost on his watch. Blinka, players have to execute but the OC has to know how to maximize their skills. In today’s NFL, a HC who talks like Nagurski and Jim Brown are still playing isn’t enough.

    Brian Schottenheimer thanks for all of your hard work, but the Jets really need to go in a different direction on offense, that direction is down the field – instead of the other way. Its almost like you are experimenting with your playbook saying “lets see what this play does.” You put Sanchez in unfair situations (3rd and long) and then call an underneath play and it either falls a yard short or gets picked. Jets staff will say firing the OC will hurt the team, Sanchez will have to learn a new playbook… GOOD, this playbook is stunting his growth. It’s true – throw in 5 wide sets and you have noone back to pick up the blitz, but if you use it in the right situation and use shotgun plays IN THE RIGHT SITUATION IT WILL WORK. Help us MOORE!

    GaryC, the play with McKnight at CB was obviously a gimmick, done to make something happen and it did. What impressed me is that McKnight had the desire and athleticism to do the job on that play, but that doesn’t mean he’s the answer on D any more than the Wildcat is the answer on O. Chicago Bob, I agree with you about Ellis but as I’ve been saying the Jets have a history of going slowly or not at all with their draft picks. I don’t see how using Ellis here and there and getting him into the mix could possibly hurt, as I said last wk to Arte we’re getting blown out at the line of scrimmage on both O and D, which after all is where the game begins and ends. GaryC, I’ll admit it might be time to stop drafting from small colleges so much.

    To no one listens to Blinka: I don’t like to disagree with your post, but if you are going to make a comment like please a little IQ here and insult the fans there are a few things you should know.. Yes Schotty had a big part of that loss. It all starts with Schotty from play calling down to some type of identity. Schotty runs a very vanilla O. His game plans are always the same and does not know how to make adjutments. Last night was another great example. How many times did Schotty try and run up the gut aginst the ravens. Are u kidding me run up the middle against the RAVENS. Yes MS had a big part in the loss as well, but it’s time for change. Rex needs to make a statement and let Schotty go. It time to be a coach Rex!!!!

    It does not matter Brady could be our QB & McFadden could be our RB with this O line the way it is blocking it would not matter. There are no holes to run thru & the QB gets blasted everytime he drops back. 2 & 3 years ago I remember Thomas Jones (who was not fast) running thru holes where he would be 10 yards down the field before anyone was near him. Now you get 2 yards & you get hit. I dont blame Mark or the RBS there is no BLOCKING!

    By the way, holdsuptrophy, I’m actually glad McElroy is on IR. He’d just get injured in a yr like this, better to give him a longer look after having an even longer off-season in which to think about the mess we’ve made of the OL by way of not anticipating injuries. Speaking of deer in the headlights, that’s the perfect description of how Rex looked last night after the game. If he has any idea of what to do about the several big problems we have at the moment, he sure doesn’t sound like it, just more blather about “give them credit,” “we’ll get it fixed,” etc. There’s no “it” to get fixed, there’s a bunch of problems relating to personnel and coaching. NOW to 2012 is when you’ll see what kind of HC Rex really is, same for Sanchez at QB.

    hey Blink , how can you not throw some blame on shotty?
    the OL is in a major state of dysfunction, lack of personal in both depth and ability, and simply put, they dont know who to block !, the edges were wide open. Mgmt is the first to be blamed, they have fielded an incomplete team, just what were they focusing on? this seems to be beyond a preparation problem, the team is not built to execute this offensive scheme any longer, you’ve either let go or traded away too much, and turned a pretty good offense into a hope and a prayer, this is not the same team, dont expect the same results.

The Jets are not a Super Bowl caliber team. 2. This is our worst roster since 2007. 3. Our O-line, apart from D-Brick, Mangold & Moore needs overhauling in a hurry. 4. Wayne Hunter & Slauson are backups not starters. Cut Ducasse, he doesn’t belong in NFL. 5. Brian Schottenheimer must go now. 6. Our front 7 on ‘D’ is slow and old, Bart, Calvin & Thomas need to go, Start Ellis, Mauga, Maybin & Bellore we can’t do any worst and we need an injection of youth. 7. E. Smith is a slow footed backup Safety, start Pool. 8. Rex your defensive scheme is stale needs a facelift ASAP.

Also, Rex KEEP YOUR BIG MOUTH SHUT with your stupid predicitions and overhyping mediocre players. Lastly, Mark Sanchez may not be the answer at QB. I saw fear in his eyes during the pregame, but that probably had more to do with our porous O-line protecting him. What has happened to the team that went to two consecutive AFC Championship Games?

    Most of us begged for depth on the OL in preseason. Obviously, someone knows better than us. Having a undrafted rookie center take on the best there is, spells disaster. Which is what we’ve seen. If you don’t have time to get it to those great playmakers, why spend money on playmakers who will never get the ball?

    IN MY OPINION LT creates more miss matches then anyone on the team, and when he’s on the field defenses have to account for him.

    GET OFF OF Schottenheimers back. If Sanchez could complete a pass… Its like Schotty is told to make a fire using wood and a match. Sanchez is the box of matches left out in the rain. I’m not saying Schotty is some amazing offensive guru, but the QB has to make a play.

    Wow. wut a game. I’ll just agree with all my other fellow Jets fans. I dont know y were still begging rex to fire Schotty, that should have been done last year. O- line would be better with me and my friends out there protecting Mark. Someone needs to make Mark laugh before the next game so he wont look so scared. I like Sanchez bt I’d be sacred to behind dat o’line. Defense rebounded well, special teams rules. And someone mentioned making westoff head coach, but maybe oc would better suit him, well just neone other then Schotty. If i could ask for one change b4 the Pats game its that we have a new oc. thank you. A jets fan…

    Recent drafts have been horrible .Personall evaluations have been horrible (when was the last time a team won a superbowl with 2 of 3 wr s in their mid 30s and an average qb )

    You all getting on Schottenheimer again you can’t blame it all on him its the offensive line that having a problem. I even seen that in the pre-season that the Jets line was having a problem The blame should go on Bill Callahan the offensive line Coach. plus losing Woody Damien sure would hurt the line went he retired and Bradon Moore wasn’t he injured I did see him playing and of cause Nick Mangold was out for 2 games. if anyone should get the blame its surly should Tannenbaum and Rex Ryan for NOT getting a replacing for Woody Damien in the off season. So I hope that Callahan can fix this and get the right players in there that will do the best job so that Mark Sanchez doesn’t have a short career. MORE OF Joe McKnight & John Conner

    im a ravens fan and all i have to say bout this game is that the Jets just played a better team, you can blame all your players and coaches but the bottom line is the Ravens were at home in prime time, i dont think even Green Bay woulda beat us.

    To AYOshow: You say why did we not use LT last night.. I agree 100 percent with you. Then you say get off Schotty’s back.. It was his call not to use LT.. His game plan was to pound it up the middle with greene BAD idea. You figured at halftime he would make adjustments, but as Schotty’s done since he as been here is stick to the game plan. Yes are O line is weak, but can improve. Schotty’s been here way too long an as shown he can’t improve.

    I got a back up Favre! seriously, alot went int Cromarte, Burris, and Holmes, could of got Moss or Owens cheap, and should think about it if they want to throw, cause with sanchez the taller the better unless yout talking post season. He is inching closer to the Romo category…Mark Romo..another guy with talent but too many distractions, ego, not being groomed well, ego will be the undoing of both. The offence played scared, why? the line with plug ins had to pass protect against a crazy defense.
    I didnt realize how many changes for Jets. Depth is what worries me!
    They will play better against the Pats, Revis gots Toms number. Cro just gots to hold his own! Green will run better too!! Thomas done for year! Depth!!

    Actually had chest pains watching the game. Why isn’t Mcknight being tried in the regular offense? I could predict the plays. Of the few completions most were from the gun. What happened to the “hurry up” and “no Huddle”? The offense stood around so long the Ravens were always rested and ready.

    Yes Sanchez didn’t look good but cmonnn ppl the kid has been getting killed all season. This looks like Kenny O all over again. Have u seen the shots this kid has been taking ? He is shell shocked and scared to even drop back cause 300 lb animals are putting there helmets in his back full speed. Shotty gotta go, we need help on the line asap and also can brodney pool please play safety over eric smith. Smith plays hard but can’t cover a hurt mangold. God I was sick all day today

    U could see tis coming a mile away in pre season.

    Who ever does the jets recruiting needs to be fired. On offense you have a terrible O line, why cut woody, get rid of fanica, and offer moore money not to retire. The QB is below average, they have zero running backs, but good talent at receiver, but they will not see the ball cause sanchez can’t get it in there hands.

    Someone in management go to the belecheck school of talent assessment. We can’t pick good players so we are screwed.

    Maybe we can give Lofa Tatupa a look!? Is he still available? If he doesn’t work out, it’s not like we would lose any speed in our LB corp. Bart is looking bad this year. Lot of over pursuing and open field misses, and just overall looks slow! He said he wanted to prove he was just as good with out the supporting cast of Lewis, Suggs, Ngata, Reed but, it sure isn’t looking that way. Can we give K. Jenkins a call too while were at it, also Dwood and Faneca? I’d take older slower Oline over this atrocity we have now. Mangold wouldn’t make a difference with the cast he is surrounded by on this Oline. Hopefully O’Hara and /or Seubert get a call this week!

    Well sure the o-line is terrible. But how does anyone defend schotty? Making excuses for him? Really? After 6 or 7 years of mediocrity? The guy should have been gone years ago, but here we are. Fire Schotty now.

    Defense and Special Teams stepped up. Offense line stinks badly! Mark Sanchez and Rex Ryan I believe in you you are the future but PLEASE step up your game. schotty needs to quit with the conservative plays does he not realize its working and most of the jet fans don’t like your play calling? Rex Ryan I believe in you and I hope you and Mark Sanchez stay here forever but rally the tream behind you and end the losing skid. We want a superbowl now. Fix the o line and work with sanchez. O line and sanchez baldy need to be worked on.

    Jets don’t need to being in another LB, Aaron Maybin will be fine to replace Thomas. I would mixs it up with Mo Wilkerson. Jets Need to put Kenrick Ellis in there as a DL/NT. What they needs to do is being someone in for OL quick RT, RG, back up C, but again the blame goes on Tannenbaum and Ryan for not fixing the OL’S in the off season. Being saying the last 3-4 4 that Tannenbaum is the one who should be fired his drafts been awful.

    You need a good O-L for BOTH the passing game and running game. Opposing teams known for their air attack, run the ball better on the ground than we do. The O-L is paramount. Due to the lockout, the Ownership and GM failed to address the O-L situation. The fan base needs to get on them. Jets staff should have pointed this need out to them. When is this going to happen? During the next off season? Another season wasted!

    Jack the Ravens had like 8, 9 or even 10 guys within 5 yards of the los all night and Schotty calls a flat pass to the wr at their 26 with the game in reach. Really? A 5 year old knows not to call that play against the Ravens in that situation especially. This is not an isolated incident either. The play calling is ridiculous and the schemes are worse. If I was running this team I would have fired Schotty right on the sideline for that call. Wouldn’t have even waited for the end of the game.

    Don’t care went you have a bad offensive line like the Jets are having and a QB, who seen to be lost at times went throwing the balls. Went ever you are playing a defense like the Ravens your QB’s need to be fast off the line and getting rig of the ball real fast and Mark Sanchez is not fast or smart enough to think of doing something like that. Offensive line is not giving Sanchez any time to set up to throw the ball even went he have time he don’t throw the balls where its need to be.

    Time for woody Johnson to get involved a little…Make a rule to your staff.. Draft an Offensive lineman #1 every year forever. In time you will have the best team..Its all about the line. It always has been and it always will be. Also, Sanchez is not the answer. Nice guy but, he is not going to get er done. Need a new OC too.

    not bying it, Callahan coaches what he is given, and has done well with it, I watch too many games to back off of Shotenheimer, but will back off saying he is the worst, at times he ilooks it with alot of help from his players, but he is the man on top, and with any sport or business its falls at his feet, exspecially when this well paid 1st round draft pick, the one who dissed Joe willy looks like he is not prepared to play and cant adjust at times, and I said it before sometimes its like Shotty puts a game plan together while driving to the game, not saying thats the way it works, but we have seen these types of games and still made it the the playoffs.
    Just bothers me the offense were treated and played like punks.

    bill, I was telling Arte today — don’t know if he’s the same guy as ArtSoCal, who sounds like a different person here than the one I spoke to on the phone — that at this pt it’s obvious there’s something going on with the Schotty thing. Only some political dynamic involving him, his father, Rex, Mr. T., and maybe the parking attendants could explain sticking with such a failure for so long. I’ve seen lots of office politics in my day, so maybe Rex is waiting for Schotty to resign, to get another job voluntarily, to see the whole O stop playing for him. That’s pretty weak stuff from a HC especially one who talks like Rex, but who knows. No one who knows a thing about football could possibly defend Schotty’s record all that strongly by now.

    IRA is right. The season is not over yet, however they are going to make it really tough down the stretch if they do not come out 4-3 going into the break. It is very obvious how important Turner is to the team and his presence missed. Mangold needs to be healthy. The run will come and they need to go back to the run game which wil open up the pass.

    Jet Fan 64 you don’t have to be an expert to spot bad. People may use the reasoning that these guys are experts and I’m just a fan but I have eyes. I watch a team like the Panthers (who are a team coming out of the basement in the league) and their offense is efficient and aggressive and mixes it up well. The Jets offense in comparison looks weak, disorganized, lacks any kind of imagination, dismal inneffective playcalling, I could go on for hours. As I said, sure the Oline is struggling, but even when the Jets were successful, it was always a case of the defense propping up the very average offense. The Schotty O hasn’t scared anyone for 7 years.I agree with you it must be politics keeping him. They succeed despite and fail because of him

    @ another ravens fan – I wouldn’t get too psyched about the Ravens. They look great one week and like garbage the next. Callahan could call the plays. They need to shake things up somehow. Moore – maybe but we don’t have Payton Manning as our QB. I love Joe Willie but he needs to keep quiet and let Rex sink his own ship if that is going to happen. Too many DBs drafted while making patchwork OLs and DLs. This is Mike T’s doing and he needs to fix it.

    I hear ya bJack, but that is what we have in this team,playoffs they are pretty good, during the season a deer in the headlite QB, its the OC’s job to adjust and overcome, sometime the guy is looking at the clip board like the plays are moving around on t he paper , maybe even laughing at him, he looks like he is walking in space, just as lost as his QB. I dont know Iam not there, but if this is the cas this guy Mason will let ya know, thats for sure and Plax will follow, and holmes will not be far behind, those are 3 pretty good recivers, they dont want to look like fools for too much longer

    Look everyone jumped on owens for what we see now was the truth in philly with Mcnab. sanchez make be next if he dont get off the hoolywood ego trip and become a ball player, he should of been all over the linemen, not staring in space looking for a miracle. i think its good when players come out and throw slakers under the bus!. problems get fixed! Ah he just had a bad day, but you said the same thing the last 2 weeks, come onkick some butt. Time to pic it up.

    Well its the QB job to make the played and it the OC to called plays it really like Mark Sanchez is not making the right plays he really making harder for the WR’s and TE’s as well of LT, went he doesn’t throw the balls where it should be. Really this is Sanchez 3rd year he still making tons of mistake it don’t take this long for a QB’s to start playing like a real NFL players. Jets just might want to start thinking if Mark Sanchez is the right qb,

    Jets just might want to start thinking if Mark Sanchez is the right QB, for the New York Jets in the future. Too me as of right now he not the right QB, that will take the Jets to a SB, or even win one. Jets might want to lose some more games So that they can have a chance to get or make a trade up to get QB, Andrew Luck.
