The kracken is dead!!

After watching the Jets victory twice over the fish Sunday, I seen quite a few things that stood out; but none of them stood out more then the two plays Vernon Gholston looked liked he be nothing more then a special team player. The first play was when Jake Long threw him around like he was a high school rusher. Ok, Long also did the same thing to JT; and I'm quite sure Long probably does that probably at least twice a game against opposing rushers. The second play was when Cromartie was attempting (attempting is an understatement, but the Jets didn't get him to tackle), a tackle on Ronnie Brown. This play stands out because the next or closest Jet defensive player was Gholston, and  in my opinion Gholston should have got there to make that tackle while Cromartie held Brown up. Now it's easy to say while I'm sitting on my couch what play a player should have or not made; however, anybody who played football knows while a player is being held up the next or closet players job is to make the tackle or even strip the ball. Brown got I believe eight yards after being contacted at or behind the line of scrimmage. I believe Gholston was not running hard enough to get to that tackle; and this lack of ferocity is why he will be nothing more then a special team player.
