The off-season is finally upon us, Jet Pressers. The Super Bowl is past and the off-season begins. As we all know, there are going to be a lot of changes between now, and when we see the Jets again for mini camp. This morning, let’s put a period, finally on the 2012 campaign, and look back at some highs and lows. Believe it or not, there were some highs:
- The Play of Antonio Cromartie- Antonio took on the role of number one cornerback when Revis went down, and had himself a Pro Bowl season. Quarterbacks only completed 46% of passes thrown his way. It was one heck of a season for “Alcrotraz”.
- “BeastMo”- We know who I am talking about, second year defensive lineman, Muhammad Wilkerson. He came on in the second half of the year, showing the world the potential he brought with him when he was drafted in the first round in 2011, becoming the second ranked defensive end behind JJ Watt. 5 sacks and 22 quarterback hurries were among his highlights of 2012.
- Joe McKnight 100 Yard Kick Return for TD- Instead of talking about this one, why don’t we just watch it. Scroll down the screen just a bit to relive this play as we saw it on that Monday night against the Texans:
- Win Over the Indianapolis Colts- One of the strongest wins the Jets recorded all season was against a team that was ultimately destined for the playoffs, the Indianapolis Colts. Week 6 at MetLife Stadium, the Jets controlled this one from the opening kickoff, winning this one 35-9. Mark Sanchez had one of his few efficient games that day, going 11-18 for 82 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs, and the big story was Shonn Greene’s top day of the year, running it 32 times for 161 yards and 3 TDs. At least for one day, the “Ground and Pound” showed some potential.
Turn the page, and we will review some of the lows.
