Why are the Jets terrible at clock management?

First off, sorry bringbacktodd. I actually wanted to write this post last night but got lazy. I'm not trying to hijack anything.

Anyway, as the title states, why are the Jets terrible at clock management? It's a problem that has been obvious multiple games this season. Whether it be the end of the half or the end of the game, the Jets seem to frequently waste a lot of time. They are too slow getting the play in, and the players don't seem to look hurried at all when getting to the line and actually running the play.

One of the biggest problems I've had this season occurred yesterday in the fourth quarter. The Bears had a first down play with around 2:50 on the clock. I knew right there the Jets would call a timeout after that play. Sure enough, they did, even though there was 2:43 on the clock after the play. This made it possible for the Bears to run the clock to the two minute warning on the following play, which let them punt the ball with under 1:20 on the clock. Had the Jets been good at clock management, they would have seen that with 2:43 on the clock the Bears would have to run a play before the two minute warning, and they could have saved themselves at least 30 seconds by calling the timeout on the play after the two minute warning instead. This might seem like a small thing, but the reason I was bothered so much is the fact that they have addressed their clock management issues in the past (as in they admitted they had the problem) but seemingly did nothing to fix it. 

Am I the only one who noticed this?
