Finally, a few words about the officiating (sorry I couldn’t find a picture of the refs from today’s game). This is not the reason the Jets lost, but the referees were brtual, to biblical proportions. Bad spots were the earliest problem. They were spotting the football, and it wasn’t even close to where the ball was. Phantom penalties too. I loved the call, but late in the game they invented that pass interference call against the Steelers. I think they dreamt it.

And then, the fumble by Redman, which was a fumble, besides the fact that his knee was down five yards earlier. They had a replay, and missed both. Again, this is not why they lost, but the refs need to come back.

Back to the drawing board for the Jets, as they head to Miami to face the Dolphins next week. We will be back this afternoon with the report card.
