I think everybody can sympathize with me when I say “Thank god, the pre-season is over.” It wasn’t the prettiest of games tonight but hear is a quick recap:

Joe McKnight doesn’t deserve a spot on the Jets 53 man roster. He is going to get one because the Jets spent a fourth round pick on him but the guy has been terrible this August, simply terrible. He lost three fumbles, including another one tonight that went back for a touchdown. He doesn’t hit the hole hard and runs timid. The guy is more scared of contact than Kerry Rhodes…no wonder he wears #25. Chauncey Washington ran the football the way it is supposed to be run tonight with 56 tough yards on 12 carries. He earned a spot on this roster. Danny Woodhead added 45 yards and a touchdown. He earned a spot on this roster.

Don’t give me any BS standing up for McKnight either. Go back and watch the highlight of his reaction after he fumbled tonight. Look at the way he didn’t go after the ball and look how he hung his head, this guy has been a disaster. The Jets made an absolute mistake by parting ways with Leon Washington and drafting McKnight.

The numbers aren’t going to show it but Kellen Clemens still looked better than Mark Brunell tonight and I am still adamant in my belief that Clemens should be the number two quarterback.

Great night for Matt Kroul who locked himself down a roster spot with two sacks. Vernon Gholston had another active night and clinched the game with a bone crunching sack. I was also impressed with Brian “King Ugly” Jackson. I don’t know if he can stick on the 53 man roster but he could be a good practice squad candidate. Similar to Jackson, Larry Taylor flashed a few times but is probably destined for the practice squad.

In the end, it wasn’t the most exciting pre-season in Jets history. I am just happy it is over.

Bring on the Ravens.

One thought on “Thank God The Pre-Season Is Over: Jets Beat Eagles 21-17

  1. I was at the game and I can’t tell you how many holes McKnight missed while dancing and tiptoeing. He really is a disappointment. I love watching Danny Woodhead. You can tell that kid is a fighter. He just keeps on battling and he better get a spot on that roster.

    The Eagles should be credited with the win as the Jets had to cheat to win. I know he played the whole game because he is going to be suspended, but Santonio Holmes vs Geoff Pope and Anthony Scirotto. Come on. I’m pretty sure he was running about half speed on that touchdown. I love watching Danny Woodhead run, you could tell that dude is a fighter.

    Has a quarterback ever looked worse in the preseason then Mike Kafka did last night?

    Even though it was preseason, it was exhilirating to watch football again. Can’t wait for Thursday.
