Jets Week 7 Anti-Game Ball: Spencer Long

NFL: Scrimmage-New York Jets at Washington Redskins Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets saw their two game winning streak come to an end on Sunday. That means we will have to give out an anti-game ball for the first time in three weeks.

Whenever practical, we try to avoid giving the anti-game ball to the quarterback or to repeat recipients.

This week my anti-game ball goes to Spencer Long. Long has been part of a couple of units that received anti-game balls earlier in the year, but today I am going to give it to him solo.

Off target shotgun snaps have become a huge issue for the free agent center. During Sunday’s first half, one poor snap led directly to a fumble. A second led to lost yardage that caused the Jets to end their drive to score right before halftime.

Long committed a penalty in the first half that led to the demise of a third drive.

His blocking wasn’t that effective either in the game.

For these reasons, Spencer Long gets my anti-game ball for the week. Who gets yours?
