Gold star to Jeremy Kerley as well. He became the first Jets offensive player with a return TD and an offensive TD, with his 68 yard punt return to go along with his 12 yard TD from Sanchez in the first quarter. All in all, a wonderful day for the Jets offense. The only black mark to me was the use of the Wildcat. Don’t get mad at me, Tim Tebow fans. Tim Tebow really didn’t provide any addition to the offense today. He ran the ball 5 times for 11 yards, and never attempted a pass.
It seemed like Sparano was trying to forcefeed the Wildcat into the game, which is not a good idea. There were times when the offense was in a good rhythm with Mark Sanchez, yet Tebow was brought into the game anyway. For example, there was a drive early in the first quarter, when Mark converted a third down with a 21 yard connection to Jeremy Kerley. After the accurate throw, in came Tim Tebow. Why? They didn’t need the change of pace. The Wildcat needs to be used as a change of pace, rather than just for the sake of it. Tony Sparano needs to be careful on that.
One more gold star has to go out to our new right tackle, Mr. Austin Howard. Did you hear Mario Williams’ name called during that game at all? I didn’t. Well, actually I did, when they talked about how Howard dominated him all game long. Excellent job.
