There were four turnovers and four sacks. That's not winning football. WR Santonio Holmes couldn't hold on to much of anything and RT Wayne Hunter couldn't block DE Jason Babin. WR Plaxico Burress was invisible, not contributing until a spectacular, garbage-time TD.
The Jets should've been able to rush for more than 94 yards against the Eagles' undersized front. They tried to spread the field and run against the Eagles' nickel package, but that didn't work, either. LaDainian Tomlinson looked slow, missing some opportunities.
Michael Vick averaged 18.3 yards per completion, with most of the damage done by TE Brent Celek. Same old story: The Jets can't cover tight ends. There was little pressure on Vick, and when they got close to him, they couldn't bring him down. The Eagles' speed killed.
LeSean McCoy did just what the Jets had hoped to prevent -- he torched them outside the tackles, constantly exposing their backside. There were too many missed tackles and the gap-control was atrocious. The defense looked disorganized.
For a change, the Jets forced a turnover (two, actually) instead of coughing it up. Antonio Cromartie added some spark to the kickoff-return unit and the overall coverage was very good. Too bad the rest of the team didn't play this well.
You can't blame the coaches for two misplays by Holmes, which created a 14-0 hole, but Rex Ryan & Co. don't get off that easy. They left Hunter on an island, didn't adjust well enough against Celek and failed to exploit the Eagles' inexperienced linebackers. Just ugly all around.
