6) The defense got lit up by Blaine Gabbert. Jacksonville ran a hurry up offense that was full of short passes that had a lot of yards after the catch. Milliner beaten pretty badly by Ace Sanders for a 35 yards across the middle. Dee Milliner got abused and looked like a rookie tonight. Gabbert has picked on him as the Jaguars have thrown a variety of looks his way. The linebackers were exposed in coverage. Harris got torched by Jones-Drew for a flat pass that turned the corner. A misdirection pass to the tight end Reisner registered a touchdown. Denard Robinson got to the edge too many times for big runs. There were definitely communications mistakes that should be expected with this many new starters. Cromartie missed a tackle on a 3rd and 5 that would have ended a Jacksonville drive but made up for it with a brilliant one to stop Jacksonville’s 1st drive of the second half. Jaiquawn Jarrett did not make an impact only making 1 tackle with no pass breakups.
7) Despite the struggles the first team defense only allowed 1 touchdown and 13 points.Wilkerson got penetration on multiple occasions and continues to showcase his strength. Coples also got multiple pressures and showed excellent quickness and agility for a 290 pound man. Coples seemed to tweak his ankle on a near strip sack. He left this game for an x-ray and has not returned to the sideline. Dawan Landry had 8 tackles, 6 solo. Sheldon Richardson had 6 tackles including a nice hit but has not been in the backfield just yet. Leger Douzable continued his strong camp with a pressure and pass breakup. Danny Lansanah continues his strong play with an interception that he then fumbled but it was recovered by Antonio Allen. Ricky Sapp recorded a sack on a play where the entire defensive line pushed pocket. Ellis Lankster had a nice night with a pass breakup and good hit and Darrin Walls made the adjustment to look back for the ball in coverage.
8) Braylon Edwards made some nice plays including a beautiful diving catch and nice tip toe along the sideline. Bohanon has done a good job. He has made a difference in the run game and has excellent hands he can even carry the ball some. He could not hold a block that led to a sack, however. Konrad Reuland blocked well and had a 31 yard reception. Spadola had 3 catches and got some separation while in with the 3rd team. Simms was 5 of 5 on a drive that led to a short Cundiff field goal.
9) 2 penalties in the first half for the Jets, a big improvement over 11 last week. Although Ricky Sapp did manage to find his way offside again in the second half.
