Same Old Jets.....
Another miserable ending to a game for New York Jet fans. Seemingly setup to win, a Braylon Edwards catch on the two point conversion and the Jets have a 3 point lead with around 3 minutes to go, but Edwards drops an easy catch which would have secured a 3 point lead and put a little less pressure on the Jets D. Still, the defense came up short, again. They had a chance to stop the Jaguars and secure 22-21 victory, but they couldn't stop the Jaguars when it counted.
The whole first half they let Jones-Drew run at will all over them, not even able to force the Jags to punt once in the first half. The second half was another story as the Jags couldn't muster anything at all, not even a first down, till that final drive.
Poor clock management by the Jets, finding themselves with only one timeout on that final drive by Jacksonville thus not giving themselves a chance to stop the clock and try and get the ball back. Why Sanchez is calling a timeout with 1st and Goal inside the 1 yard line, I'm not sure. It was smart clock management by Del Rio, Jones-Drew and the Jags, as they hold for a final game winning field goal which was the equivalent of an Extra Point to win the game as time expired and thus ending any slim hopes the Jets had at making the playoffs.
Another year, another way to break the hearts of Jet fans everywhere. Same old thing every year. Same old sorry @** Jets.
