Sunday Morning Quarterback: Jets vs. Giants

The other major issue was with the special teams. The stupid mistakes from Joe McKnight are unacceptable. After the defense holds, you cannot take a roughing the kicker penalty. Mistakes like that kill momentum, as we saw tonight the Giants went on to score after the drive was extended. This cannot happen.

Also, it looked like TJ Conley was punting blindfolded last night. He had two punts in a row that went off the side of his foot, and one that would have been just as bad had it not rolled. Maybe the Jets jumped the gun getting rid of Travis Baltz. Conley has to be consistent, because punting can change the game based on field position. A consistent punter is one of the little things that can be the difference in a game. Ultimately, most NFL teams are close in talent, and it’s the little things that make a difference. Punting is one of them.

By the way, did everyone forget Dustin Keller? Not targetted much last night.

There were some positives, however. The run defense was terrific, allowing just 1.8 yards per rush. This is exactly what we expect from the New York Jets defense. Bart Scott had a particularly nice stick on a running play. The defense here looked good.
