    The disciplinary problems I place on Norv's shoulders--it is his job to make discipline the TOP priority of the game, and apparently, he did not think it was enough of a priority.

    But Nate's blunder is by far the largest. I think Norv deserves a trial, but Nate deserves the execution.

    I vote none of the above. We were beat today by our lack of execution. We did not get it done. We were beat, that is it. Why point fingers? We need to resurect our running game so we don't have to live and die by the pass alone.

    LT's had performance like that all year and we've still won so he shouldn't be blamed at all. We're usually good enough to make up for his mediocre play.

    Gates and Floyd had a couple of dropped passes but that's understandable. The penalty on Floyd hurt though.

    The VJ thing wasn't a big deal at all IMO. It was a stupid thing to do but I'm not entirely sure he deserved a penalty for it. It also helps that we got back all the penalty yardage (and more) on the very next play so it only cost us about 8 seconds.

    Phillip's headbutt was stupid but at that point, I was pretty sure the Jets were going to score a TD regardless of the penalty.

    Norv didn't keep the team disciplined enough (see above) and he had some stupid/too conservative calls. We shouldn't expect him to be able to control every player on the team though in such an emotional game.

    Kaeding should definitely get the majority of the blame. The 57 yarder was completely understandable but the other 2 were not! He wasn't even close on them and that's what cost us the game.

    I spoke to my friend and boss, a huge Jets fan. He said the "Thank you guys for handing us this game."

    Lack of execution is one thing. Stabbing yourself through the heart is another.

    I still wonder if nate was paid to throw the game or something. It just doesn't add up.

    Whole team played like **** if you ask me. Stupid penalties, dropped passes, no run defense, ****** field goal kicking, dumb coaching, just to name a few. We didn't deserve to win with the way we played today.

    All of the above gets my vote. Except maybe LT, cause he's sucked all year.

    way to be positive :tup:


    Can we just give LT roids or something now so we don't have to draft another hb yet? It worked fine for merriman, Barry Bonds, etc...

    Who's to blame...i voted for Nate but the thing that pisses me off the most were the stupid bs penalities. Totally reminded me of the Patriots loss a few years ago. It's as if our team reverted back three years in Playoff experience. Can't give away yardage like that in the playoffs.

    Yeah but they at least had blockers on him. Weddle just bounced right of him. Weddle needs to bulk up a bit. Kind of sad when he can't even tackle the QB on a sack.

    Ellison and Gregory needed to be our starting safties next year and weddle as dime safety hes an overrated piece of crap- he had greene one on one in middle of field with no blocker on him and used poor technique- tired to tackle him high with arm tackle. The dude is too weak. Did u see him when he came in clean on Sanchez? He couldnt even bring him to the ground after several seconds of trying.

    It's an interesting point, but unlike Nate's field goal fails it's more of a toss-up IMO. If they don't make that run, they don't score what wound up being the winning touchdown. But with Nate's field goals, it's more expected that he'd make it. You don't know to expect a big rushing TD. You CAN expect a 35 yard field goal from the most accurate kicker in the league and the only all-pro on the team.

    Don't get me wrong I like weddle, especially in passing downs. He's made some big plays. I still think Nate is more to blame but i just think weddle's tackling should of at least got him on this list for today's game.

    Gregory was horrible today. A big LOL to anyone who thinks he's the future at safety.
