On The Flip Side

I realize of course that this is a Jets-focused blog, and that the even with all the penalties last night, the New York Jets still have the best defense in the league, but why is it that nobody is talking about the horrid performance of the Baltimore Ravens?

I would like to look to the other side of the ball and examine the performance of the Baltimore Ravens offense. As we have discussed, and the pre-game commentators noted, the Ravens were supposed to have an amped up defense, now armed with Anquan Boldin, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, an improved Joe Flacco and Ray Rice, as well as a sparking new hurry-up offense. And yet, even with all this, the Ravens, it seems did worse on offense than even the paltry Jets O. Second-year Mark Sanchize barely had a chance to show what he can actually do, as he was handcuffed by Brian Schottenheimer. Yet, without the incredible amount of penalties called on the Jets D, the Ravens would barely have had any first downs. Even with all the penalties, like the 3rd-and-28 on Wilson, the Ravens were only able to score one touchdown (which only happened because of Braylon Edwards and Kyle Wilson), as well as one field goal. The Jets, on the other hand, managed to score three field goals, as well as I believe three turnovers on the Ravens vaunted offense, including two fumbles and one interception. This was, of course, all while being penalized, as well as stuffing the much heralded three-headed run game of the Ravens.

 

It seems to me that the Ravens played worse offense than the Jets in this painful loss. What do you all think?
