Jets vs. Jaguars Recap: Five Pointing Down for the Jets

New, comments
Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Last night wasn't all good for the Jets. Some players did not perform well. Here are five whose stock is down today.

Dee Milliner: Milliner was getting positive buzz for his training camp performance, but his preseason debut was an unmitigated disaster. He didn't play for very long but still surrendered 97 yards in coverage on 3 catches. The first, a 16 yarder to Allen Robinson was well-executed and tough to defend. The next play, Robinson burnt Milliner badly deep. An underthrown ball allowed Milliner to get back into the play, but he still couldn't take advantage of it. Robinson hauled it in for a 45 yard gain. Dee later missed a tackle that resulted in a 36 yard gain. Additionally, he did a poor job working through a red zone screen on a play that went for a big gain and set up a Jacksonville touchdown.

Ross Martin: Martin was another star of camp who struggled in his preseason debut. I don't know how big of a deal coming up short on a 54 yard kick was, but hooking a 39 yarder didn't help his cause. The kicking competition might not be over, but Martin's margin for error has likely been reduced to zero going forward. Nick Folk is now the favorite to keep his job.

Erin Henderson: It seemed to me like Henderson missed some opportunities to make plays when he was in the game.

Lorenzo Mauldin: The only noise he made was missing a tackle in space. He was pretty hard on himself after the game too.

Jace Amaro: It would have been nice to see him go out and dominate with how much time he got against Jacksonville's fringe players. He was quiet, though. Bryce Petty did miss him wide open deep once, but there was a play near the goal line where Petty bought time, and Amaro fell away from the ball instead of using his size to go up and make a play. That could have helped an interception happen.
