if baker can keep from falling down like a 9 year old playing flag football we win the game shame on him. i know its a mistake, but you cant make mistakes like that. kudos to both kickers for huge kicks. we beat chiefs next week get to 4-3, it isnt supposed to be a cake walk, all these teams are basically even , just who gets the breaks and baker falling down while wide open in o.t with 20 yards of free grass in front of him was the one we needed.

I read this article about how bad these teams played, and all the mistakes made, and by far the biggest play NOT made was mentioned by a fellow poster. My god, how does a professional football player in crunch time with no one within 20 yards in every direction around him fall flat on his face. I couldn't care less what happened prior in this game. As stated, catch that ball, game over. I'm so proud of Baker, as this article quickly pointed out, that he caught 4 passes for 30 yards on the drive the kicked the first field goal. Here is a thought Baker, catch them when they matter the most.

And oh yeah, Jets do Rhyme with Mets. Two teams that can't make plays when it matters most. Two teams that constantly come up short.

Lousy Game but I am happy we got a W. Thaat was a dumb/lucky move by cable to go for a 57 yd FG. I know SeBass has a leg...but that easlily could have gone the other way.

Other than the Mets, I don't know a Franchise that "Jerks a Fan's chain" like the Jets....
This was a game THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO WIN....
Unfortunately I'm a Fan of both of these "Teams"

That is the beauty of being a Jet/Met fan. It is like being a Dodger fan in the 50's and losing to the Yankees all the time. Remember the bums. What is does is makes you appreciate it more when they do win. I guess it adds chracter. The Mets inherated the Dodger fans so the suffering has been inherted as well. I became a fan of both when I was 8 in 1969. My brother was born in 70 and he has yet to see hte Jets ever win. You have to have perseverance and in the words of Tug "You got to belief"

As A Giants fan I always root for the Jets when they arent playing my team. I really think Mangini needs to be more aggressive. He has no specialty plays in his book. I admired the Raiders play calling. And when your kicker can drill it from 57 yards you just have to tip your hat and go back to work next week.

What impressed me the most this week was that when a play was over, we started focusing on the next play rather than letting a bad play bite us on the next one. Defense really hung in there the whole game and I think it gave Cable the confidnece in his team to go for the 57 yarder. Even if Janikowski missed it, I think he had faith in his defense to hold them. Plus the Jets were out of TOs when we tried the FG.

Still, not a bright move...can you say field position? Its not like its a rookie QB that rattles easy for the Jets...You have Brett Favre on the other side...again I am happy we got the W...but I thiknk that was a bad coaching call.

As JETS fan that always roots for the GIANTS unless they are playing the JETS (and once for them against the JETS when the game mattered for the GIANTS and not the JETS). I can say this - There were so many people in NY football land that made a big deal out of JETS getting Mangini and many that had early doubts about Tom Coughlin and his disciplinarian ways. One team has a championship and future. The other will be looking for a better coach somewhere in their future. I don't want to rush him out (not when there are so many games that we can all post "typical JETS" after loosing a game where our team plays as unfocused as they did yesterday). This sure is fun.

the two," not a bright move was a field goal that could have been kicked before half time! the other was the time out on the field goal miss from jets that made it go over time! i understand trying to freeze the kicker, but to not go for a field goal with 8seconds to go before half? i'm cool with it now, we won! but? "just win baby" RAIDERS NEEDED THIS TO LIFT THEIR SPIRITS! GO RAIDERS!!! whew!=)

It's really not that easy of a call to make. It was near the end of the OT and it may have been our last chance to win the game, so it's a risk you have to take if you want to win. Plus the jets offensive line was really worn down. Tommy Kelly and Trevor Scott were getting in Favre's face like nobody's business, but Favre knew how to get rid of the football. If it was early in the OT, then punting would've been the better call.

I hear yeah, a tie would have been worse...but I am little put off by our offense. First couple games of the season we were running the heck out of the ball...and then injuries and poor play calling has set back our running game. We should be putting more points up and not be in the position to have to make that decision in OT. Again though its easy to say....

Penalties in the red zone has helped put up points this season. I can recall two O-line penalties that took 6 points of the board. More creativity in the red zone may help.
