They looked surprisingly good today. The big killer though was that 'un-necessary roughness' call. Was that on Flozell or Scott? That might've lost the game for us as well.

Default Good job O

I was pretty impressed with the offense this game. 2 90+ yard touchdown drives and really a game winning 90 yard drive. If Sanders wouldn't have been ridiculously held on one of the last plays of the game where he had beat his guy and was streaking into the endzone they would have won, he would have been open. Even when they didn't score they moved the ball well and ran pretty good too. For the first time this year, I have to say the O line did good. They gave Ben good time and when he did get sacked he had had the ball for a while. I'm not saying Ben hangs on to it too long, I'm just saying he had it for a while. Unfortunately, they could have done better on the last drive. Pretty good all around game from the O line though. And I was going to say Arians called a decent game until I saw the draw play, then I hated him again. The only complaint I have about the offense this game is about Spaeth. Horrible. But Miller should be back and that would have made a huge difference this game.

All points are valid but those points don't win us a playoff game.

I would've like to have seen a little more fight from Sanders on the final play of the game. The rookie just stood there staring at Ben. He's got to learn to shake his man and move. The O had a better day out of moving the ball but still struggled to put up points.

The offense moved the ball, 17 points is not enough to win when you play without your best defensive player. When we were without Ben, the D was lights out, we needed this O to step up and put points on the board and they didn't THE OFFENSE FAILED TODAY. But when that happens everybody rips the D for losing the game. Even our defensive players blamed themselves. Is it too much to ask for the Offense to actuaslly score 24 or more points in a game??!!

This offense is bad. We are going no where if they continue to under play small ball the rest of the year.

I understand what you are saying. But the Jets are a playoff team and if we didn't get raped by the refs we would have won, without Polamalu, Miller, Smith, and a few O linemen which will all hopefully be back for the playoffs. The obvious pass interference on the last drive in the endzone is what kept us from winning.

Offensive line played like an entire different team but I disagree with Ben. I thought he stood up in there and was in a great rhythm. He played a great game, esp on the long 90+ yard drives, BOTH times. Ben is a stud and he played better than I initially thought yesterday. Good job by the o-line to keep him clean for the most part against a fury rush.
