Now, for the other side of the coin.
Zach Rogers squandered any opportunity he had of making the final 53. He could possibly have played his way off of the practice squad as well. He had passes go through his hands, and he muffed a punt at the end of the game that could have cost the Jets the game. Not that the result of a preseason game is a big deal, but Rogers definitely lost the confidence of coaches last night, and I think he knows it.
Ben Obomanu had a suspect game as well. He has had a pretty good preseason, and did catch 3 passes for 24 yards. However, he did have a couple of passes go through his hands as well. He really did very little to distinguish himself, as we move to the final cutdowns, due by 4 PM on Saturday.
On the offensive line, Brian Winters had a rough night. When Matt Simms wasn’t completing passes, he was taking hits and running around back there. A lot of that had to do with missed blocks by Brian Winters. He will get better, and will be nice depth on the line, but I am thankful he is not being counted on to play yet.
Onward and upward. Next up is the Tampa Bay Bucs in the season opener!
