I could be wrong, but I believe this was the first snap of the game. Either way, it was a bad one for Kyle Wilson.

CB Kyle Wilson is lined up man to man on Michael Crabtree at the bottom of the screen (above). Crabtree (red) is going to run a double-move, and try to burn past Wilson.

Alex Smith is looking right (yellow arrow), and pump-fakes to Michael Crabtree. He notices that Kyle Wilson has inside position and wants to fake a quick pass and bomb it to Crabtree.

Inside the yellow circle we have Kyle Wilson man-to-man with Michael Crabtree.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing.

What’s bad is that Kyle Wilson is making contact with Crabtree… beyond the 5 yard limit.

If you look at the line of scrimmage in blue, you can tell that Wilson/Crabtree are 9-10 yards away. It’s obvious that they made contact beyond 5 yards– the white line.

Consequently, the referee throws the flag and the 49ers get a nice start.

Grade: C

It was a bad start for Wilson, but I suppose it could’ve been worse…. the ball could’ve been caught for a TD.

What was wrong with Kyle Wilson on Sunday?

1. Complaining when he already got the illegal contact penalty.

2. He simply got beat. Burned on a double-move and he was forced to make contact beyond 5 yards.

3. Taunted Crabtree more than one time after he got beat, but he was lucky because Alex Smith misfired.

The Jets have a lot to clean up before Monday Night Football when they play the Texans… that’s for sure. The only question for Rex is, what to address first?

Run defense?

Pass defense?

Tackling?

Discipline?

Just pick one… any one.

Thanks for reading!

Check back to The Jet Press next Wednesday… I’m hoping for good film to breakdown from the Texans game on Monday Night.
