The Jets offense, along with the entire team as a whole, played pretty poorly yesterday in Pittsburgh. After they played so well in week one, the Steelers did all they could to put the Jets back in their place yesterday. Not a good day.

The Jets in the past have put a lot of the blame on their coordinator. Brian Schottenheimer was a guy that received a lot of grief for the poor play of the offense last season, and in the past. Unnamed players would complain, publically saying how the offense was too complicated. They couldn’t figure out the playbook.

Well, Schottenheimer is out, Sparano is in. By all accounts, the offense is much simpler than it was in the past. The players all gush about it, saying how the offense gives them more freedom to make plays. They don’t have to think too much, and their instincts are allowed to take over.

But, the Jets scored only 10 points, and had 219 yards in net offense. Who is to blame now? The players.
