4) Secondary got carved up again in the 1st half but settled down in the second half – Tannehill was 10/22 for 118 yards and a touchdown and no interceptions in the 1st half. Don’t let the completion percentage fool you there were many plays left out there such as an overthrown pass to Wallace where he had Milliner beat by three yards and Hartline was missed a few times. Rishard Matthews was also able to have his way in the middle of the field. Harris and Davis have been terrible in coverage. Cromartie got faked out on a route he jumped that Hartline then reversed that Tannehill then sailed over his head. Milliner was targeted in the 1st half and had some good breakups but he got beat cleanly on the Wallace touchdown and was beaten by Wallace again but the pass was overthrown. Milliner had a great pass breakup on a deep throw on one play in the 3rd quarter and then intercepted the next ball to Wallace on a great break on the ball. Milliner also had the game ending interception for his first multi-interception game. All told Milliner had a good game on Wallace despite a couple of mistakes. Ed Reed made his second pick as a Jet late in the 4th quarter off of a tipped ball. Miami was five for their first seven on 3rd downs before missing six of their final seven opportunities. Kyle Wilson left this game with a knee injury.
5) Quigley had a great day but the rest of the special teams unit did not – Ryan Quigley had three punts inside the 20 with two of them pinning Miami inside their own 11 yard line. The one that was returned was a good return because of a missed tackle. Quigley actually outputted Pro Bowl punter Brian Fields of the Dolphins. The coverage team missed tackle after tackle allowing a 30+ yard kickoff return and a 12 yard punt return that could have been prevented. Nick Folk missed a key 35 yard field goal that would have given the Jets a two score lead in the 4th quarter. He then redeemed himself by hitting from the exact same spot on the next drive.
6) Rex Ryan’s job status reports – According to reports it is looking more and more like Rex Ryan will return as head coach of the Jets. The remaining snags are that John Idzik wants coaching changes on the defensive staff and Rex Ryan wants an extension. The Jets haven’t reached out to candidates or hired a search firm so all signs point to Rex being back. Unless Ryan is too stubborn to let some of his trusted staff members go this should happen.
