We didn’t play as well as it looked

Recommended Posts

The more breakdowns I see, the more I realize that the Jets beat themselves as much (or more) than we beat them.

Watch this... Crowder had his guy beat by 6 yards.

Saw some Jets beat writers tweet very similar stuff like “I can’t believe the Jets are still in this game”.

Jets’ dismal showing should leave you fearing the worst

 

ORCHARD PARK — Well, that was something

And, yes: Maybe the first Monday of football season is the home office for overreaction, and maybe teams that look like Super Bowl shoo-ins in Week 1 aren’t always as good as they seem, and maybe teams that look like tomato cans in Week 1 don’t always follow the pathway to Palookaville.

But the Jets sure look like one awful football team. You can qualify that any way you like — no preseason games, road opener against a division favorite, lots of moving parts all trying to work themselves onto the same page. And that’s fine. And maybe that makes you feel a little bit better in the wake of this 27-17 loss to the Bills.

(Feel-good mantra: IT COULDA BEEN WORSE!)

“We just really did not play well,” Jets coach Adam Gase said. “It’s disappointing. Watching the guys work all week, the excitement all week …”

His voice trailed off. He shook his head.

“We’ve got a lot to work on,” he said. “We’ve got a lot that’s got to get fixed.”

A lot to get fixed? The Jets, right now, are a football jalopy: a calamity on offense, a catastrophe on defense. The foundational hope, quarterback Sam Darnold, regressed so much, it was like he was playing this game in reverse. The defense, though feisty, is severely undermanned and profoundly overmatched.

Are we missing anything?

“No excuses,” Darnold said. “I have to be better.”

He does, there’s no question about that, or this season that already seemed destined for 5-11 or 6-10 is bound for something more closely resembling 2-14. But it would actually be better if the Jets could just write this off to the growing pains of a stagnating quarterback. This wasn’t that. This was far worse than that.

Think about it: The Jets lost by double digits — you lose by double digits in the NFL, that’s usually a pretty bad day at the office — and the immediate, instinctual response was: It sure felt worse than that. And there’s a reason for that: It was worse than that. It was way worse than that.

Consider: Josh Allen, who otherwise had his way with the Jets defense (302 yards passing, 57 rushing, three touchdowns total) gifted them a couple of fumbles deep in Jets territory. Tyler Bass missed two short field goal attempts. It doesn’t take an awful lot of imagination for 27-17 to become 47-17.

 

Which would have been a far more representative score for how dreadful the Jets played, with rare exception, on both sides of the ball, for the full 60 minutes.

(Feel-good mantra: IT’S JUST ONE GAME!)

“There’s just so much for us to clean up,” Gase said. “It was a rough game. We didn’t play well enough. We have to get stuff fixed in a short period of time.”

Lucky for the Jets, they get to play at home next Sunday. Less lucky is the opponent: the San Francisco 49ers, who played in the Super Bowl last February and looked, for about 50 of the 60 minutes of that game, like they were going to go home with the Lombardi Trophy. The easy way to describe the 49ers is this way: They’re like the Bills, only probably about 30 percent better. Both sides. All ways.

Oh, yeah.

“Losing sucks,” Darnold says. “No matter who it is.”


But there is losing and then there is losing. Sixteen teams will lose this week and will feel like the sky is falling because that’s what Week 1 overreacting is all about. We can assume there isn’t a lot of Zen going on in Philadelphia on Monday morning, or in Minneapolis, or in Cleveland. Atlanta could probably feel better about itself, and so could Carolina …

(… although old friend Robby Anderson probably feels pretty good about his 75-yard touchdown catch against the Vegas Raiders …)

But most of those cities really are overreacting. Our city — or at least the green half of it? What you’re feeling isn’t an overreaction. If you’re feeling anything other than numb, actually, it probably is an accurate fear that as abysmal as you might have already thought this season would be …

Well, to quote Micheal Ray Richardson, when he was asked just how low things could get for the Knicks one year: “The sky’s the limit.”

The Bills certainly aren't a finished product and left a lot of points on the field but they dominated the Jets, have made improvements in key areas and look like a playoff threat.

This is the best Bills team we have seen in a while.

Damn straight, except for our inexplicable 3rd quarter disappearing act, we played better than the score.  Really, It should have and really could have been 42 to 3 at the half and we could have seen what Fromm and our backups could do.  Except for our running game we dominated ever aspect of that game, and the running game only sucked because Manboobs did not respect our passing game and he rolled the die that for us to beat his D, Allen would have to do so through the air and Allen did exactly that.  I cannot remember the last time, maybe Orton or Fitz, its been a while, when we had a qb who could guide the offense and drive down the field.  Teams will now have to decide if they want to shut down the pass which opens them up to Motor and co or if they want to shut down the run and let Allen beat em through the air.  We have the pieces at long last to do either.

Adam Gase Warns Jets Fans Not To Overreact To First 60 Years Of Franchise

FLORHAM PARK, NJ—Asking for patience so the team has time to develop and cohere, New York Jets head coach Adam Gase warned Sunday that fans should not overreact too much to the first 60 years of the franchise. “I know that we got to a slow start in the first six decades, but it takes time to build a winning culture,” said Gase, who claimed that despite the desire of fans to see the team win right now, it could take up to 150 years to turn around the Jets franchise. “You can’t judge this team and give all these hot takes based on one little century, that’s not how football works. I know these armchair quarterbacks are gonna attack me if we look bad this next decade, but that is just short-term thinking, and I’m in this for the long haul. We got some promising young guys on this team and I guarantee they will still be alive to see us lift the trophy by the 2080s.” At press time, Gase was retooling his entire offensive scheme for the third time in four weeks.

Why do we have to do this every week?  They missed plays and we missed plays.  If they get a do-over, we get a do-over.  Most NFL games, if you go back and watch the film and say, "man, if everything had gone right for the losing team, they'd have won".  Well, no shit!  In this case, it's not even that the Jets would have won, but that if everything had gone right they'd have been within 4.

I feel like some people around here only watch Bills games and nothing else.  Almost all NFL games look like this.  They all have missed plays.  All QBs miss throws.  The Saints scored 34 and Bill Barnwell has an article up saying he didn't really play well. Plenty of times that the Bills have lost to better opponents we have been the ones to leave plays on the field.  Most games are won because the other team fails to execute rather than the winning team being dominant for four quarters.  

Why not look at this game another way: The Bills didn't have their "A" game and still won easily.  

We are NOT the Ravens or Chiefs but we are good.  Give them a chance to clean up their mistakes going into next week.

for a 1st week with no exhibitions I thought it was ok and somewhat expected erratic.  I didnt think we were that great, more that the Jets suck balls. 

Concerning thing to me is seeing things we saw last year that cant be blamed on rust.


Allen fumbling and missing wide open lay up throws

Oline struggling in the run game

Defense taking siestas on certain drives.


Sin is nothing to celebrate, have pride in, or hold parades for. The rainbow is a symbol of promise not a symbol of depravity.

Thats idiotic. First, especially on broken plays when the pocket collapses you will always find a few plays per game for each team where somebody is wide open and the QB does not see it. And its is also idiotic that the speaker says that this is a TD when there were two DBs 15 yards farther back who could still tackle the receiver. And one also cannot see if one of the two DBs later broke on the open receiver to make an immediate tackle or even defend the ball when Darnold floats it becuase he has to throw while running...

If the Jets get a pass for that alleged miss TD pass then so do we on the fumbles (both in/near the red zone) or missed TD to Brown. 

Final score 38-24 or something like that. Fucking retarded thread.

Same ole Lit....bitching instead of celebrating.  Josh passed for 300+ yards...Ran for a bunch of others too.  Yeah he coughed up the football and that should be addressed, but they had no warm up games...no preseason.  This is going from practice to game on....so cut both teams some slack...they are going to be a bit sloppy for the first 3 games.  If we can dominate Miami next week and work out the squeaks and rough area's life will be good!

Notice the injury bug hit the entire league pretty hard this week.

Stupid play calls, and stupid mistakes. So yeah, they allowed the Jets to stay in it. Game should have been over at the half.

This team has two good running backs. How good? We don't know, because rather than call their number when up 3 scores inside the 20, they'd rather have Allen run the ball.

No preseason is an excuse, but it's not that much of an excuse. Play calling that gets the running game more involved, will only make the passing game that much better. And I'm not talking about 3 straight runs up the gut either. Remind me again why Daboll was brought in to run the offense.

As for the kicking game, who didn't see this coming? He better do multiple hours of hypnosis this week

If the Jets had played a lot better they would have won.  There is no doubt about that.  The Bills were very lucky - they would have lost against any other team.

This was expected based on this year. If we look the same against Miami and LA, then maybe start to worry. Either way, I was still impressed with the way we played in the 1st half

Considering no real offseason, no preseason games I thought the Bills played well. Yes they have things to improve on especially when they start playing good teams. Game was over by the 2nd quarter. The Jets garbage time TD at the end made the score look closer than how the game went.

That play is every bit as bad as an Allen fumble.

Sam is a beaten QB and it's only week one.

Can he rebound? I don't know.
