lol, whatever makes you guys feel better that you eeked out a win at home against an underperforming division opponent. again, grats on your early season win, I look forward to ending your season again this year. I must have hit very close to home on my comments to stir such anger in some of you : ) you know I post the truth.

But isn't this really about the loss bothering you? Why else would you be making excuses and deflecting?
Frankly, I don't really care what you say to get folks riled up here, but I call it as I see it. Geting gashed in the run is literally the worst thing that can happen to a defense. It's the earmark of deep structural failures in the personell, or the schemes used to cover other structural failures. The Jets can either defend the run adequately only OR generate pressure adequately. They, it seems, cannot do both as the elaborate blitz packages used to enhance their average pass rushers can be run at easily.
Your pretense that this isn't a big problem going forward is your problem.
Watch Hamlet ... there is a famous scene where the Gertrude is watching a play unfold that essentially depicts the truth of her own villianous actions, and her complaint is that the play queen "protests too much" too be believable.
That is to say, she puts up a vocal and visible front that gives away her actual anxieties like a waving red flag.
In short, your protestations give you away my friend. The fundamentals of that game for New Jersey are even scarier than after the much wider loss they took at NE last season. It wasn't poor execution, it was a lack of talent to stop the most fundamental things their opponent did to them ... and it isn't isolated to this game.
These aren't freak turnovers, bad calls, etc ... that team is allowing 25 ppg (9th worst in the NFL) and 135 rushing yards per game (6th worst) and their middling 13th ranked offense isn't nearly enough to compensate for it.
You should face that reality instead of deflecting the structural flaws of that team onto "bad luck."
