Tom -- terrible grading on offense and special teams --- if this were the Patriots offense that scored 40 pts on 8 scores (4tds, 4 fgs), rushed for 163 yds as a team and 3 tds, and had decent numbers by the qb (can't blame Clemes for that INT - it was a blind-sided sack in which the ball popped out), you would be grading them a B+ or A. Because it is the Jets you are being a little harder on them. Same for special teams -- 4-4 on field goals, a few touchbacks, a few high snaps in which Graham was able to pull it in, and avg field position inside the 27 (all described by you), but the 2 bad punts that didn't even mean anything made you grade them a "C". They played great except 2 bad punts -- again, if the Patriots did the exact same thing against Miami and you had to grade them you would have given them an A. Anyone would have. So why do the Jets deserve this disrespect when they played so well. You can say it was against an 0-11 team so they didn't prove anything, but the odds-makers gave then 1 1/2 to lose, many analysts predicted this would be the game miami wins, and the fact of the matter is the Jets played better aganst miami than a lot of other teams in which miami played close games. So, since the jets are so bad this year, can we at least praise them a little when they earn it by playing well? Can we at least give them a little respect for playing a good game and not consider what they had done in the past when you grade them?

Hey guy, the Fins stayed close with alot of teams, and we blew them out. Small victory, yes, but a good start on next season. We need a few players and we will be fine. GO JETS...

That was the best performance this year.Clemens is coming around, just needs recievers to hang onto the fast ball. Now lets remain undefeated the rest of the season and have something to be proud of.Its do-able.

For this game this is how I rate this team:
Offense C-
Defense B+
Special Teams B
Coaching C+
Last but not least It's hard to believe this is a 3-9 team.

would be nice if Jets had more than a week between games, but reality bites with Browns (look at record over past 15 years, ouch!)

I'll be there Sunday but will expect lackluster Jets performance.

Last week? OK. Best game? Steelers.

Eric - concentrate on getting Kellen to step UP in pocket, dump or throw away when coverage is bad. And kiss your D - playing great!

Make my Sunday!
