Even though Geno threw two more picks, I still am imprDC Comics iPhone 4 Casesessed with the skill-set he is brinArizona State iPhone 4 Casesging to the table tNorthern Iowa iPhone 4s Caseshus far. He clearly doesn't always make the best decisions, but the team seems extremely confident with him under center and hasn't panicked in stressful situations. Smith's ability to throw the deep ball has also brought some excitement back to the Jets, as I canRice iPhone 4 Cases't describe to you how good it feels to finally have a quarterback and offensive system in place that allows for throws of over 20 yards. His go-ahead 69-yard touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes was perfectly executed by both parties and proved to be the difference in the game.
When the Jets took a 20-6 lead early in the third quarter,MLB Padres Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300 Cases, I let myself think for a moment or two that this game might actually end up being a stress-free win. After all, the defense was doing a great job of keeping EJ Manuel in check, and the offense was able to move the ball effectively for NHL Canucks iPhone 4s Caseslong stretches of the game. Unfortunately, penalties, sloppy play, missed opportunities, bad challenges, and more penalties turned what should have been a comfortable win into a nail biter.
With external pressure at an all-time high and internal pressure simmering due to the arrival of new GM John Idzik,USA Team Samsung Galaxy S4 i9500 Cases, New York Jets coach Rex Ryan is essentially coaching for his job this year. What will it take for him to survive the axe? Barring a Woody Johnson intervention on his behalf, probably somewhere in the neGeorgia iPhone 4 Casesighborhood of seven or eight wins along with a clear indication that the rebuilding job is going as planned. With this North Texas iPhone 4 Casesas a backdrop,Southern Mississippi Samsung Galaxy Note II N7100 Cases, I will monitor the progress of my Jets on a weekly basis and try and gauge the prospects of Rex keeping his job.
On positive side, New York found success both running and passing the ball. While no one would ever accuse Buffalo of having the stingiest of defenses, the fact that Bilal Powell was able to rush for 149 yards gives credence to the notion that the Jets might be able to push some teams off the ball this year. They struggled UNCW iPhone 4s Casesmightily in this area a year ago, but for the second week in a row Jets' backs have had some success pounding the rock.

Week 3 opponent: Buffalo Bills
Gang Green's defense looked even more formidable with the return of Quinton Coples to the lineup, recording eight sacks and hitting Manuel a total of 16 times. Buffalo's signal caller was forced to constantly be on the move in order to avoid pressure from the wave of defenders who were non-stop in their pursuit. C.J. Spiller, who torched the JetIowa iPhone 4s Casess last season, was a non-factor (9 yards on nine carries) before exiting with a knee injury. Currently ranked third in the NFL in total defense, if this group stays healthy they should only improve as the season progresses.
The hiccups on DMLB Tigers iPhone 4s Cases included failing to wrap up Fred Jackson when they had him contained in the first quarter (play resulted in a 59 yard gain) and the total loss of self-control by Kyle Wilson that resulted in penalties on four consecutive snaps and a later benching. Luckily these and other infractions didn't cost the team the game, as Rex has to shore this up before they face the Titans this weekend.
