TJB Year in Review: September 2013

NFL: New York Jets at Tennessee Titans

Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.com

Pushing through the last few months of 2013, here’s a quick look at all the happenings from the Jets of the last year, month by month.  Next up, September 2013 …

With the #MiniDraft in full swing, the Jets started claiming a number of players.  Some players gave us some indictation to their season successes based on their preseasons.

People freaked out because Ryan visited his son at college.

The jets named their first practice squad and then signed Brady Quinn.  Who was cut and then re-signed. The QB competition was “ongoing” according to Woody.  Tone hit the practice field.  The Jets worked out Leon Washington.

We thought the Bucs were going to be a lot better than they turned out being.  Geno made it happen against the Bucs.

The team was very young.  With Kerley out against the Pats, the Jets brought back Ben Obomanu.  After fighting with the Patriots, there was concern some linemen would be suspended.

Sanchez was placed on IR.  Despite an injury against the Pats, Wilkerson was confident of his return.  Sheldon Richardson is a wrecking ball.  Coples was active against the Bills after coming back from his ankle injury in the preseason.

The Jets got their second win against the Bills but it was ugly.  So much so that the Jets re-instated their pushups for penalties policy.  David Nelson worked out with the team.

Coples & Wilkerson were at danger for being fined of their hit on Jake Locker.  Milliner had some ups and downs as a rookie, Darrin Walls didn’t do much better against the Titans. Stephen Hill had a concussion and there were conflicting reports on Sanchez and his surgery.

Random stuff? The initial Power Rankings were not kind.  Goodson restructured his deal. The jets wore all white on their opening Sunday.  Fox Sports love Robert Malone although the Jets didn’t. The Jets aint no jokes.  Lankster was let loose on special teams. Rex and Willie Colon wished Mariano Rivera well.

I just went through CBS Sports updated prospect rankings and something that really surprised me was the QB rankings.

One guy who gets no respect is David Fales! He is currently ranked 6th by CBS at QB but the number 5 and number 4 guys are both QB's he beat this year!

In both games Fales also had better stats! Carr was very close to Fales in the SJSU vs. Fresno St. game but Fales easily beat out brett Smith when Wyoming played SJSU!

Here are their stat lines:

Fales: 27 of 37,  72.9% for 482 Yards, 5 TD's, O INT's with a QBR of 87.4

vs. Brett Smith 22 of 34, 64.7% for 267 yards, 3 TD's and 1 INT with a QBR of 63.1

then

Fales 37 of 45, 82.2% for 547 yards, 6 TD's, O INT's and a QBR of 97.6

vs. Derek Carr 380 of 50, 76% for 519 yards, 6 TD's, 1 INT and a QBR of 91.8


Another reason Fales should end up a Jet...the guy just gets no love from the media!

Lovie Smith: We have a place for a great cover corner

Revis said last week that he was excited about a future with Smith at the helm and Smith sounded like he felt the same way during his introductory press conference on Monday. Smith said, via WDAE, “there are reasons” why Revis is one of the best cornerbacks in football and that there would be “a place for a great cover corner” on a Buccaneers defense that won’t be running Cover 2 on every play.


Good just hand over the round 3 pick

Yeah I remember we set a franchise record with penalties against the Bills in that game...yet we still won!! Rex's pushups for penalties idea seemed to do the trick...


We also set a record with our win/loss/win/loss pattern!!

I had a similar thing happen with a TV show. I watched a rerun of Elementary last night and was shocked that I didn't remember Mycroft blowing up Sherlocks' stuff at the storage facility!! That was REALLY EPIC!

@jaym 

I am glad to hear that! No more talk of the jets signing him...now if Denver would just sign Decker and the Saints, Graham!

Hank will remind us of his contradictory statements, we don't need an archive for that

@a57se@jaym  There is zero chance of Graham leaving the Saints....Zero.....its pointless to even speculate about it because it is never going to happen.... There is a more likely chance of Revis playing for the vet minimum for the next 5 seasons and Kim Kardashian and Miley Cyrus sharing the Nobel prize for physics than Graham leaving the Saints........
