Jets-Dolphins Game Analysis

Jerome Boger is today's referee. It's his 13th Jets game as ref since '06, incl '09 PO game @ SD, '10 SNF win @ MIA, this yr's OT win vs NE.

— Randy Lange (@rlangejets) December 29, 2013

Surprise: Geno Smith (local) not a game capt. Rex sticks with vets -- Mangold, Ferguson, Harris, Landry, Reed, Pace.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) December 29, 2013

In previous Mia game, Geno threw INT late in 2nd Q that got him benched. This time, he leads a terrific TD drive.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) December 29, 2013

Still find it amazing that Geno ran for that TD after running into his own guy six yards behind the line of scrimmage.

— Erik Frenz (@ErikFrenz) December 29, 2013

Rex Ryan's defense has had a 4th down stop, INT and forced a punt in the second half so far. #nyj

Some #Dolphins fans are leaving Sun Life Stadium early.

— James Walker (@JamesWalkerNFL) December 29, 2013

Nick Folk is the leading cause of death amongst human watermelons and people who wonder if your mom is a prostitute.

— Patrick Daugherty (@RotoPat) December 29, 2013

Thousands of #Dolphins fans exit Sun Life Stadium before the end of the game.

— James Walker (@JamesWalkerNFL) December 29, 2013

Ed Reed just moved into 6th place by himself with 64 career INTs, getting out of a 3-way tie with D. Sharper and R. Lott. Thanks Charlie.

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) December 29, 2013

The Dolphins' radio broadcast sounds like a suicide hotline right now.

— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) December 29, 2013

Rex can't help himself. Running his best defender out of the backfield at this point with DBs diving at his knees. Beyond stupid.

— PatriotsXLVIII (@PatriotsXLVIII) December 29, 2013

Also, if Geno Smith doesn't throw 3 picks in 4th quarter of #jets Wk 2 L to NE, we'd be talking about them clinching a playoff berth today. — Sigmund Bloom (@SigmundBloom) December 29, 2013

Jets finished 8-8 overall and 3-3 in the AFC East- same record as Miami. Fins had huge free agent splurge. Jets had Geno Smith — Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) December 29, 2013

Nothing beats the feeling of driving out of another teams stadium being sent off by a host of middle fingers...means u got the job done ha — Damon Harrison (@BigDame900) December 29, 2013

Rex credited Ed Reed's arrival for Dee Milliner's improved play. (Both had INTs today.) — Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) December 29, 2013

The Jets just won consecutive games for the first time since Weeks 13 and 14 of the 2012 season. #TeamOnTheRise

— PatriotsXLVIII (@PatriotsXLVIII) December 29, 2013

Sheldon Richardson's 2 rushing TD are most in season by a defensive lineman since William "The Refrigerator" Perry had 2 for the 1985 Bears — ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) December 29, 2013

8-8 is not pretty. But the New York Jets finished the season playing 4 straight competitive football games. 3-1 in December. — FBXII (@FlightBoyXII) December 29, 2013

Geno and Milliner...two of this year's biggest targets for criticism...finish the season on a high note. Optimism is refreshing. #NYJ — Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) December 29, 2013

#Jets were 6-0 when Geno Smith ran for a TD, and his 366 yards rushing are 2nd in franchise history by QB. (Al Dorrow 453 in 1960)

— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) December 29, 2013

Jets leading rusher: Chris Ivory 182 rushes, 833 yards. 3 TD. Leading receiver: Jeremy Kerley 43 catches, 523 yards, 3 TDs. #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) December 29, 2013

Jets finish 19th in points allowed, 29th in points scored. Lots of work to do: Need upgrades at QB/WR/TE/G/RT/OLB/ILB/CB/S.

— Chase Stuart (@fbgchase) December 30, 2013

But had they gone 3-3, and started the year 4-10 instead of 6-8, my guess is Rex would be fired. Keeping him b/c of 6-8 start is maddening.

— Chase Stuart (@fbgchase) December 30, 2013

Oh and I guess the Jets too, but whatever. They take over for the 2011 Broncos as the worst 8-8 team in NFL history.

— Scott Kacsmar (@FO_ScottKacsmar) December 30, 2013

Things I didn't think of in August: Bilal Powell would have more pass completions than Mark Sanchez. #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) December 30, 2013

Per @PFF all 59 tackles that played over 600 snaps either gave up 3 sacks or committed 3 penalties ... apart from @AustinHoward68.

— Jake Steinberg (@Steiny31) December 31, 2013

The Jets were outscored by 102 points in road games this year, worst in the league.

— Chase Stuart (@fbgchase) December 31, 2013

Per @PFF, @BigDame900 finished as the number one DT/NT in the NFL against the run, 2nd in stops and 2nd in run stop percentage. #KeepDunbar

#NFL 2013: Best turnover diff: #Seahawks (+20), #Chiefs (+18), #Colts (+13), #Eagles & #49ers (+12), #Panthers (+11), #Buccaneers (+10)

Why did Rex Ryan earn his job back? 8-8 record with team that had expected win-loss of 5.4-10.6. http://t.co/wzl4eXPDxX

— Erik Frenz (@ErikFrenz) December 31, 2013

Final 2013 AFC East rankings, sack % (NFL rank): #Bills—9.2 (2); #Patriots—7.5 (6); #Dolphins—6.8 (11); #Jets—6.5 (14).

We paid Sanchez, Quinn and Garrard a combined $9.8 million this year for 0 snaps played. Oh Sanchez you expensive bugger!

— David Wyatt (@D_wyatt13) January 3, 2014

Wilson gave up 24 receptions, 2nd only to William Gay (23). He's pretty good at what he does.

— Scott Salmon (@ScottSalmon48) January 4, 2014

Keeping Rex

Sheldon Richardson just told me Rex Ryan means everything to him. He'd cut off his two arms for him. Int on #SNY #nyj #jets

— Jeane Coakley (@JeaneCoakley) December 29, 2013

It's such a disheartening sign to see Woody Johnson making this announcement about the head coach. Where is John Idzik?

— Chase Stuart (@fbgchase) December 29, 2013

Rex knew before the game, Woody said. Players just found out Rex would be back a minute ago.

— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) December 29, 2013

Rex deserves to be back, unreal job considering how this team played. How far they've come since Geno-Sanchez deal in preseason

— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) December 29, 2013

Klecko making a great point. Best thing to happen to Rex was Tanny being replaced. The safety net was gone. Idzik is the boss. #Jets

— Drew (@DrewfromJersey) December 29, 2013

Not saying Rex didn't do a good job this yr. Pay attention outside the firey talk and fist pumping. 0 Division Champ. 0 Conf Champ. 5 yrs.

— Chris Carlin (@ChrisCarlinSNY) December 29, 2013

Good move Woody-Rex has matured as a HC over the last year and if he continues to mature he will be the HC of the Jets for a long time.

— Joe Bommarito (@AskTheScout) December 29, 2013

If a new coach was brought in, Sanchez would be out. But with Rex? After throwing him behind a preseason OL, does Ryan owe Sanchez a shot?

— Jane McManus (@janesports) December 29, 2013

Rex is right. He & Idzik did a great job of bringing in veteran players that really embraced being #Jets, despite having little $$ to spend.

— Deb (@LilMissNYJet) December 29, 2013

Rex was vague about whether he has complete control over his coaching staff. Coaches are still in the dark about their futures. Odd #nyj — Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) December 29, 2013

Rex is making Woody Johnson lick his boots right now. Dolphins put $8-$10m extra into Rex's pocket today.

— PatriotsXLVIII (@PatriotsXLVIII) December 30, 2013

Ryan on contract extension: Won't comment. On asst coaches: Meetings ongoing. @espnnewyork.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) December 30, 2013

Given Woody Johnson's historic distaste for eating coaching contracts, it's in his best interest to give Rex a one-year extension. Not more.

— Erik Frenz (@ErikFrenz) December 30, 2013

It was actually NINE coaching changes before 2009 season. (Forgot Mangini to Browns). And 2 interims made full-time. Rex only one left.

— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) December 31, 2013

Looking ahead

Westhoff: "I coached there all those years, but I'm still a fan...this is the most excited I've been in the past three, four years." #nyj

Douzable is an unrestricted free agent, would like to return to the Jets next year.

— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) December 30, 2013

Goodson told me that based off his talks with Idzik, Rex that he expects to be back next year with the Jets.

Ed Reed says he will have MRI on surgically repaired hip. Calls it "maintenance," not a new injury. #Jets

Remember when the media criticized the Jets for not naming a starter in the preseason?

Former Jets RB Jonathan Grimes has 16 carries for 50 yards & 1 TD + 4 catches for 35 yards today. Coulda been great in West Coast Offense.

Hey, remember when everyone thought we were insane for giving the Jets a mean projection of 7.5 wins? They end 8-8.

You could argue Milliner is the best rookie CB like Rex said, Richardson should be DROY and Winters didn't have bad plays.
