    Here is my tweet, what happened to this Defense? looks like we could use a defensive guru here!

    Ground and pound and our defense against the run, our trademarks: At halftime, Foster has over three times as many yards (100) as the whole Jet team (31) and he’s averaging 11 yards a carry. And I suppose I don’t need to remind anyone, but I will anyway, that the interception that Sanchez threw right before the half, keeping almost certain points off the board for us and giving 3 more to the Texans, is THE EXACT SAME ONE HE’S BEEN THROWING FOR 4 YEARS IN THAT SITUATION!

    I was for the first time in a long time, wasn’t blaming Sanchez but once again he throws bricks in the red zone. to low to high didn’t lead the slant tipped passed knocked down . this game was in our hands until Sanchez regressed back into his shell

    This was a game that could have been won. Texans played somewhat conservatively, settling for field gola sinstead of going for it on 4th and short. Could have put the game away early if they went for the kill. Give the Jets credit, especially the D for playing hard the whole game. Sanchez hit some wide open WRs but missed too many. Still not seeing the field. Seemd to be better the few times he actually stepped up in the pocket but too many times he stood glued to one spot. If they could have eliminated the same stupid mistakes (poor clock management, poor sub execution, poor 3rd down defense, poor 3rd down conversion) they could have won. Both INTs are on MS, and came at cricial times. He needs to step up, not choke.

    Honestly, the reason the Jets are doing horribly this year is due to overratted Rex Ryan and his foolish tactics on defense. Even if you want to point the blame at Mark Sanchez (rightfully so) we know Mark is Mark. He’s been a non-effective QB for the past four years! He’s only as good as a back-up, not a starter, so for all of us to know this, but the coaches don’t, means, we need a new coach! I’m sick of the DAMN blitzes at the wrong time and the hard-headedness to keep Sanchez in the starting line-up. Tebow is DEFINITELY not the answer, but what happened to Greg Mcelroy? We didn’t presue Peyton Manning, but picked up Tebow? That had to be the DUMBEST move I’ve EVER seen in the NFL. Mike T needs to be fired as well!
