Jets HC Todd Bowles on his postgame message to his team. But that wasn’t the case when Nagle made his first start for the Jets to open the 1992 season. “He gave us the rules and he came in with energy”.
Now, we’ve all been this frustrated with our teams, however, most have the self-control to avoid destroying a table in the process of our loathing. So these are short-lived, it changes every week. “We knew his signals, we knew everything”. “He didn’t even blink”. “You listen to the coaches, I’ve watched some of the interviews that he’s done…he looks like he is the real deal”. He didn’t have a chance to blink, but that’s not his nature.
Though Sanchez led the Jets to back-to-back AFC Championship games in 2009 and 2010, he was eventually cast away two seasons later after sub-par play. “I have to do a better job and that’s always where I’m going to take it”. If you’re winning it gets quiet and if you’re losing it gets loud.
Sam Darnold’s first career start as an National Football League quarterback started off as a disaster – a pick-sick on his very first throw. “After that, I put it behind me”.
“We were calling out their plays as he was getting up to the line”, linebacker Darron Lee said. There were just too many points allowed on defense.
Darnold made the ill-advised decision to roll to his right and throw across the field on his first snap. “We are excited, we are proud of him-we are proud of everybody who contributed to this win”.
Stafford threw four interceptions – one shy of his career high – and left the game briefly in the third quarter after being hit from the front and back by the swarming, hard-hitting Jets. Jets running back Isaiah Crowell gained 102 yards on 10 carries and scored twice. I’m like, ‘Just sit there and wait on the inside route.’ It was either gonna be a snag route or a ram route, and he ran a ram route. “And those guys (on the Lions) – everybody was ready to play, including myself”.
As I stated earlier in the prop questions, I think the Jets pound the rock early and often in this one. “Now we’ve got to keep the momentum going”.
Darnold was drafted with the third overall pick this year, and he earned the start in the season opener for the Jets.
Lions head coach Matt Patricia’s “multiple” or “sub” defense was shredded last night. “He works hard. He doesn’t take a play off and doesn’t take a day off – and we like that about him”.
And from the personal archives, there are lessons to be learned about going overboard in either direction on one game. I know PM Roundup features her a lot but…
The Jets’ 12:20 of good football in all three phases – offense, defense, special teams – beat the Lions’ 1:55 of good football on one possession by the offense. “All that matters is that you have that mindset”.
