    our offense is great. But our defense is totally misused.

    FIre cottrell yesterday if we want to do well. Come on Spanos wake up. Pull away from the bar and fire whats holding us back. Please. I and most of us want a super bowl win.

    Our defense played great today. Special teams killed us, giving the Jets the ball close to the endzone multiple times. Not to mention that the Jets had an interception return for a touchdown.

    The defense played well

    29 points

    -7 for the int
    -7 for the 5 yd drive

    15 points from a team passing the hell out of the ball to get back in the game

    not bad

    add 7 point for Cro's td

    even better

    If spanos can't see it and some fans are blind then so be it. WE'll just not win another super bowl. Fire cottrell. Hire Rivera and lets get a better defense and win a super bowl.

    I don't care how many points the defense gave up.


    Fact is, they are not dominate.


    They are middle of the road at best.


    The Jets suck. We should have shut them out

    Jets had fourteen points in the first half. Seven on an interception, and seven because they got the ball at the five yard line. They had 15 points in the second half, seven of them came on a drive that started at our nineteen yard line. The Jets had one long drive the entire game. The rest of the points came because the defense was put in a bad spot. Other than that, they forced four turnovers, and the Jets were 1 for 8 on third down. They had 3.2 yards per rush, and 5.3 yards per pass. They had 300 yards of offense, and much of it came in garbage time. Blame special teams for most of the Jets' points.

    Niiiiiiiice post.

    The defense played a good game today. Not great, but good.

    But in defense of foober's Cottrell hatred, I think a lot of the blitz disguise was on the players themselves, probably as a result of that meeting they had. All that motion REALLY messed with the Jets offensive line. Plus there was some terrific "wedge busting" blitzes by Dobbins that had terrific effect for another LB or a safety coming behind.

    I saw good stuff from our D today, and while it's the popular thing to bash them these days, all I want to see is improvement, and I saw it tonight.

    Yep. They played well. Not shutdown, but much better than they've played so far this year. Also, Dobbins and Smith are a much better duo than Wilhelm and Smith. I wouldn't be surprised to see Wilhelm start on the bench next week against Oakland's ground game. BTW, can't wait for your Blues and Golds this week.

    OK, I love ya like an adopted-Sproles in-law, but do you REALLY think that someone heard the MNF guys say that, then radio'ed it in to the Defensive Coaches? Or maybe, MAYBE! To the helmet radio instead?!?!

    C'mon man. :icon_tease:
