4) Penalties – The Jets had 20 penalties for 168 yards in this game and most were very costly but some were not deserved. The referees lost control of the game in the early part of the 4th quarter and started throwing flags haphazardly and mostly in the Jets direction. Vlad Ducasse had 4 penalties by himself including a personal foul as well as 2 consecutive ones that forced a field goal instead of a touchdown. Colon also was penalized multiple times. Kyle Wilson and Antonio Cromartie were called for pass interference with Wilson’s costing them 3 points. Winslow was called for offensive pass interference. Wilson was targeted by the referees during the Bills game tying drive as he got baited by Stevie Johnson. Wilson had to be removed from the game for committing 4 consecutive penalties. Quinton Coples was called offsides multiple times as was Muhammad Wilkerson.

5) Misused challenges – Rex challenged a spot on the field on a 3rd and short that he shouldn’t have and lost a timeout then challenged a Stevie Johnson catch that wasn’t a good challenge either leaving the Jets with 1 timeout remaining in the 3rd quarter. It cost the Jets a turnover as Manuel was incorrectly ruled down when he clearly fumbled.

6) Injuries – Ivory did not return after the 1st quarter he had only 4 yards on 5 carries. Harris looked to injure his ankle in the 4th quarter but returned after 1 play.

    I think as Geno gets more reps, the turnovers will go away. The Jets passing game is actually a weapon for them right now. Holmes is back to his old self and Hill looks like a big deep threat. This defense is outstsnding. I think the only defense better is seattle and maybe Houston. I don’t think we will see this amount of penalties ever again. Also, Darrin Walls and Ellis Lankster should move into the 2 and 3 slots

    This team is very young. As they gain experience they should cut back on the number of mistakes and the defense should become even more dominant than it already is. Rex is Rex. There will be mistakes. He’s not gonna take a demotion to defensive coordinator. Woodhead still hasn’t hired a head coach with experience. If you think some other coach would have this team, with so little experience and so much youth dominating statistically game after game and overcoming the mistakes which are the product of their youth, among other things I’ve got a bridge to sell ya. This is a playoff team!
