ITCHING to get to the games that count, but there’s two more articles to write before I can do that. Here’s the first one.
WR Paul Turner! Paul “Mother******” Turner! At least that’s how some Jets players will think of him as they turn in their playbooks on Saturday. Last night while Turner (6 – 66 – 11.0 – 0 – 0) was making fools out of New York’s entire secondary, he stopped and took a moment to return a punt 71 yards on their special teams unit. He made sure there was enough humiliation for everyone. Such a nice boy.
It was a good thing too, because offensively, I have no idea what was going on out there. Both of our QB’s, Chase Daniel (14 – 22 – 63.6% – 131 – 0 – 2) and McLeod Bethel-Thompson (13 – 16 – 81.2% – 82 – 0 – 0) were a wonder to behold. I have never seen two QB’s look so efficient, while playing so bad at the same time. This was complimented by us not being able to run the ball for shit.
Rookie RB Cedric O’Neal (15 – 32 – 2.1 – 0 – 2) led the team in rushing as worked on his Tim Hardaway impersonation. Unfortunately it’s extremely hard to cross someone over with a football. So putting the ball on the ground so much…maybe, might have been a mistake.
Defense yet again took a page from Bruno Mars and Uptown Funk: “If we show up, we gon’ show out!” DE Steven Means (1 – 1 – 0 – 0), you have to love that guy. There is no way we can cut that guy. I have no desire to see him in a giants, Cowboys, or Redskins jersey. We have to find a way to keep that guy.
I need to also mention DE Marcus Smith (2 – 0 – 0 – 0) and S Ed Reynolds (2 – 0 – 1 – 0). I wasn’t a fan of when we drafted either player, and neither seemed to find his way under the last coach. Under this new coaching staff however, both men have shown real promise. Just goes to show you that superior teaching can release locked potential. I hope to see both players make the 46 man roster.
THAT’S IT! Next time I post one of these recaps, it will be after we beat Cleveland.
