You know Rex Ryan is annoyed when he refuses to hand out game balls to the New York Jets Defense.
Bart Scott had a great game; Darrelle Revis set up the winner with an INT, and Jim Leonhard saved the game on a Jason Witten tackle, but according to Rex, this defense was awful.
“We’re not giving a game ball to any defensive players, even though Bart Scott played tremendous,” Ryan said. “But when your defense is not consistent and we don’t play to our standards, no game balls.”
“There’s definitely a lot of room for improvement on the defensive side,” cornerback Antonio Cromartie said. “Just for us, we gave up too many yards.”
Watching the game, the same problems from last season emerged again; no pass rush (Cowboys Tony Romo threw for 342 yards), and a tight end (Jason Witten) who had 110 yards on 6 catches.
As for Cromartie, he has mixed feelings about his play.
