NEW YORK JETS: Oh No He Didn't?!
The Sanchise Calls Out His O-Line.
The Only Thing I Can Think Of, That Is Big, Green,
And Entertaining, Is GUMBY Damn It!
Did Marc Sanchez call out his Offensive Line on TV during the second half of Saturday's game against the Giants? Upon further review, I think he did.
"....they gotta stop a four man rush. It's that simple." - or something to that effect, is how he phrased it.
Those are biting words my friend, and an easy way to lose friends. As a matter of fact, almost everything he said into the microphone Saturday night was directed at the Offensive Line. The Giants sacked Jets quarterbacks seven times in last night's exhibition. They got to Sanchez three times, and got hold of Tim Tebow another four times.
At least Sanchez got caught by the Giants' starters. In the first half, he was greeted in the backfield by Jason Pierre Paul, Osi, and Justin Tuck, which is quite understandable. But in the second half, the Offensive Line allowed the Giants to corral Tim Tebow another four times by guys named Adewale Ojomo, who had two sacks, William Hill, And Matt Broha. To get run over by that line-up guarantees a week chock-full-o criticisms. And the only way the criticisms will stop, is if the Jets take the field next week, and actually show they can play this game.
Poor guy. Marc Sanchez is trying really, really hard to exert himself now that Tim Tebow is here, isn't he? His words might carry some more weight if he hadn't thrown that pick-six though. The Jets QB may have single-handed won a place on the Giants' roster for rookie, #38-Jayron Hosely, with that play. Jayron Hosely took Sanchez, to-the-house. He returned a Marc Sanchez INT seventy-seven yards for a touchdown in front of Gang Green's crowd.
Marc Sanchez had six offensive opportunities to matriculate the ball up the field. Six times, the Jets failed to score points. And on their way to halftime, Steve Weatherford reminded his old team just how huge of a mistake they committed by not signing the now Giants Punter. In this Giants fan's eyes, Steve Weatherford was Big Blue's runner-up MVP of last season. In the first half of Saturday's game, the Jets watched their punter, T.J. Conley, shank punt after punt after punt.
In the second half, at least Tim Tebow moved the Jets close enough to score a field goal. And on the passes he did connect on, he looked a little crisper than Sanchez as well; just a little. There was the obligatory interception, of course. But at face value, there were a lot a cheers for Tebow when he took the field for the first time. Like Sanchez, even Tebow had a word or two for his Linemen. On one occasion after getting sacked, he popped up and got pretty animated, and seemed to be directing his ire towards his front guys. The QB controversy only gets worse from here.
I put much of the blame for this mess on Mike Tannenbaum. And if I'm ranking the one's most responsible, indeed Tannenbaum is number one. But then comes his boss, Woody Johnson. After the owner I start blaming players. And at the bottom of my blame list, would be Head Coach Rex Ryan.
Since reaching back to back AFC Championship games, the Jets have done more to devolve back into the green primordial ooze of futility than assembling a squadron of qualified Jets.
Right now, I can only think of one thing that is Big, Green, and entertaining. And that would be Gumby damn it! I'm not a Jets fan, but even I was annoyed at Gang Green's play Saturday. That goes for all of them. The Jets have a potential disaster on their hands. So buckle up, make sure your trays are in their upright positions. When the oxygen masks drop on Opening Day, kiss your season good-bye and brace for impact.
And by the way, the Giants are upset the Jets didn't clean up after themselves after pooping in their house.
