Positive Takeaways from Jets-Dolphins This is the NFL.

Messaggioda liny195 » 19/10/2019, 5:29

With only 16 games in a season Youth Mark Gastineau Jerseys , every game carries such an intense amount of emotional weight.When you demolish a team on the road, on Monday Night Football to start a new era, the elation is glorious.When you follow up that win with a loss in your home opener to a less than fearsome divisional opponent, that stings. The negativity has flown freely throughout the world of the Jets in the hours since this ugly loss, but you know what?It was one game!Let’s discuss some of the positives!Pass rush: Through productive blitzing and good execution, the Jets managed to sack Ryan Tannehill 4 times. Another one was wiped out by penalty. The Jets had only managed to collect 4+ sacks once in their past 32 games (Thursday night vs. Buffalo last season). The 46 sack yards the Jets collected is the second highest total in all of Todd Bowles’ tenure.Quincy Enunwa: The Jets need to find someone else who can consistently move the ball through the air, but Enunwa has given Darnold no reason to make anybody else his favorite target. He looks healthy and back to his beastly self, grabbing imperfect passes out the air, racking up YAC like few others can, and moving the chains time after time. He had 6 first downs against the Dolphins after collecting 4 against the Lions, giving him 10 through two games.Trumaine Johnson: I’ll get deeper into his coverage performance in this week’s coverage report, but as far as I remember Johnson did not allow much of anything against Miami. I recall him getting a lot of press opportunities while the Jets went blitz-heavy, and he responded very well. A good bounceback game after a shaky opener in Detroit.Sam. Darnold. You cannot help but be thrilled with what he has done so far. The mistakes sting harshly when you are watching as a fan, but throughout the entire offseason and in between every game, we discuss that this season is all about Sam going through the rookie bumps and bruises and getting his feet wet in the NFL. We all knew these mistakes would come. What you wanted to see was his ability to bounce back.He barely could have bounced back any better over these first two games. He shook off an ugly pick six to lead a road whooping on prime time. This week, Sam threw a poor interception early and another one in the red zone following a takeaway (though Terrelle Pryor is arguably the primary culprit there). Sam still managed over 300 yards and a yards per attempt rate of over 8.0, doing everything he needed to put the team in position to complete a 20-point comeback and at least tie the game if not take the lead. With simple execution from his teammates, the Jets easily could have scored the 20 points needed to get back in the game. You wanted to see what he could do with 40 attempts instead of 20, a poor supporting cast, and poor circumstances? Darnold showed you he’s already plenty capable of producing in adverse conditions.I really loved one play in particular. The Jets were down 20-6 with 10 minutes left in the 4th quarter and were facing a 3rd & 22 at the Miami 37. With two false start penalties, they had a surreal sequence where they advanced the ball 1 yard over the past 4 minutes. The Jets needed something humongous to give them a realistic shot at getting back in the game. A field goal would not only be a low-upside 55-yarder (though Jason Myers ended up making it Mark Gastineau Jerseys Stitched , credit to him), but it would barely slice into the lead at all, still keeping it at 2 scores (and ultimately the Jets would not get down the field 2 more times). This was the perfect time to take a what-the-heck prayer down the field and see if the Jets could manage a huge play to keep the comeback on. Darnold rolled out and tossed up a ball for Terrelle Pryor near the right pylon. Risky for sure with two defenders there - but it was the time to gamble, and Darnold understood that. The ball sailed directly through Pryor’s hands. A dime and perfect understanding of the situation.If Aaron Rodgers or Matt Ryan had Darnold’s performance against Miami, you could say it was a decent quarterback performance. The two turnovers were very costly and the offense only scored 12 points after all, but he made a ton of money throws and created a lot of opportunities for his teammates in spite of poor offensive line and receiver play.However, Darnold is not Rodgers. This was his second NFL start. He continues to show resiliency, flash his upside with big time throws, and do what he can to lift up his supporting cast. The script is playing out exactly as expected and hoped. He’s making timely mistakes. But he is bouncing back from them in tremendous ways. He is giving this franchise a great deal of hope.With 534 passing yards at this point, only Cam Newton, Warren Moon, and Andrew Luck have thrown for more over the first two weeks of their NFL careers. Darnold is a year younger than all of those guys were.What did you like in this mostly sloppy game? RUN STUFFSThe Jets need to see a drastic improvement in the efficiency of their run game.

The offensive line has been one of the most maligned position groups on the team, and it’s in the run game more so than the pass game where their struggles have hurt the team most.A huge issue has been the enormous amount of stuffs the offense has produced. Over the past two seasons, the Jets have gained two yards or less and no first down on 413 rushing attempts, the highest total in the league. In 2018, the Jets ranked 29th in yards per carry (4.1) and percentage of rush attempts resulting in a first down (21.9%). They were the only team ranked in the bottom five of both categories. Altogether, the Jets ranked 30th in rush offense DVOA and 32nd in rushing EPA (expected points added).Of course, the most notable addition the Jets made to their rushing attack was Le’Veon Bell. Adding the league’s all-time leader in scrimmage yards per game is certainly not a bad way to try and rejuvenate a sluggish run game, but what excites me most about Bell is that he has been great in the specific areas where the Jets have been awful.Bell has done a tremendous job avoiding stuffs. He has been dropped short of the sticks for a gain of two yards or less on only 35.9% of his career regular season carries. That’s the lowest rate among the 26 running backs with 700+ rushing attempts since 2013. Comparatively Youth Sam Darnold Jerseys , the Jets were dropped for a stuff on a league-leading 46.5% of their rushing attempts in 2018.Obviously, this is a stat that can be heavily credited to the offensive line. It’s unlikely Bell replicates that number playing with a lesser group in front of him compared to the one he had in Pittsburgh. However, there’s no doubt that the running back definitely has some part in producing that number. Bell’s trademark patience and vision help him do a great job of keeping the ball churning forward and avoiding prolonged stretches of stagnancy. Over his most recent three seasons, Bell ran for fewer than 3.0 yards per carry in only one game. In 2018 alone, Jets running backs ran for under 3.0 yards per carry as a group in a whopping six games.RED ZONE OFFENSEThe Jets scored a touchdown on only 20 out of 44 red zone trips in 2018, a rate of 44.4% that placed them 30th in the league.Both phases of the offense played a part in the ineptitude, but it was the rushing attack that was more at fault. The Jets picked up a first down or touchdown on only 21.2% of their rushing attempts in the red zone, which ranked 30th in the league. The passing efficiency was less inept, as the Jets converted on 30.2% of their passing attempts in the red zone, good enough for 22nd in the league.As Sam Darnold caught fire down the stretch, the Jets showed signs of life in the red area. They picked up a first down or touchdown on 34.8% of their red zone passes over the final four weeks of the season, which ranked 11th in the league over that span. The Jets were one of only five passing offenses over that span to post at least five touchdowns and no turnovers in the red zone, along with the Texans, Steelers, Buccaneers, and Browns.BALL SECURITYThe Jets turned the ball over 30 times in 2018, the third-most giveaways in the league. As was expected going into the year (and should be expected of any rookie), Sam Darnold had rookie bumps in the turnover department that pushed the Jets near the top of the turnover list. He had 15 interceptions, tying him for the second-most in the league.Fortunately, there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic that Darnold will become a solid protector of the football going forward. Perhaps the top reason is the strong set of hands he displayed. After entering the NFL with questions regarding his ability to hold on to the ball, Darnold didn’t fumble on a sack until the team’s last game of the season. Losing the ball only once all season is impressive for any quarterback Sam Darnold Jerseys Stitched , and especially so for a rookie.Additionally, we saw Darnold drastically cut down on the interceptions near the end of the season. Following his return from injury, Darnold only threw one pick over the final four weeks of the season. He didn’t throw any over his final three games, and finished the season throwing 113 straight passes without an interception.Darnold was not the only one at fault for the team’s turnover struggles. His teammates had immense trouble taking care of the ball. Jets running backs lost four fumbles, and the wide receiver group lost three. Josh McCown threw four interceptions in three games, a bad snap by Spencer Long led to a turnover, and Andre Roberts gave one away on a kickoff.Here is yet another area where Le’Veon Bell could be of major assistance. Bell has lost only four fumbles in his entire career, equal to the amount that Jets running backs lost in 2018 alone. Overall, Bell has fumbled only eight times on 1,541 career regular season touches, a rate of 0.52% that stands as the second-lowest among the 18 running backs with 1,000+ touches since 2013.The newly-signed Jamison Crowder has improved as a ball handler in the passing game. He hasn’t fumbled a single one of his 95 receptions over the past two seasons. That’s significant improvement over the earlier portion of his career, when he fumbled the ball twice in each of his first two seasons. He only lost one of those, however, so Crowder still has only lost one fumble over 221 career receptions.On the other hand, the Jets probably shouldn’t feature Crowder at punt returner if ball security is going to be a primary emphasis. In 2017, Crowder let the ball hit the ground on five of his 27 return opportunities, leading to him losing punt returner duties for the Redskins in 2018.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="XtXtmV">The Jets ranked 29th in points scored per offensive drive last season. They scored 17 points or fewer in ten games. It’s safe to say that they need to get a lot better offensively in just about every facet — the numbers above illustrate just a few of the many areas where the Jets need to see drastic improvement if they’re going to be competitive in 2019.How much do you think the Jets will improve in these three categories in 2019?
