It was nice to see a turnover on defense, even though the throw that caused it was horrible. The pass rush by Mike Devito forced a horrible overthrow. LaRon Landry welcomed himself to the Jets nicely with that pick, along with a big hit on Victor Cruz. The hit was clean, despite what Giants fans were saying. If he is going to lay hits like that, things may change in the way tight ends play against the Jets, which is a great sign.
Another guy that stepped out and played well was Antonio Allen. He had three tackles officially, but when you watch the game, you could see that he was all over the field. He is moving towards being a strong asset in sub packages this year on defense.
Quinton Coples continued his positive play from last week. It is still preseason, obviously, but he is on his way to shedding his “bust” pick status. He finished with 3 tackles (one for a loss), one sack, and 2 hits on the QB. This man will be a difference maker on defense this year.
Finally, Aaron Maybin, although not on defense, created some mayhem with a blocked punt. He is an active player, and if he is going well, his speed will reak havoc.
That’s it for the Sunday Morning Quarterback. We get to try it again next week against the Panthers.
