Stock Up, Stock Down – Week 6, Pats vs Jets

Kyle Fahey with a stock report on the New York Jets after their week 6 game against the Patriots…

I don’t want to be here right now. I have no jokes, nothing to make fun of, just a pure heartbreaker.

Stock Up: Demario Davis, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Buster Skrine

Demario Davis: Another solid and surprising game from Demario. Seven combined tackles, allowed one catch on three targets , and a 81.0 overall grade from PFF.

ASJ: Hate to say I was right…but was I right or what? Regardless of that one play we are going to exclude from this, ASJ was a monster all game. Eight receptions, one TD, and another phenomenal blocking performance.(given a 70.2 rating in blocking via PFF)

Buster Skrine: Well, this is the most unexpected thing all year…. Buster Skine is playing well. Skrine covered a wide array of Patriots weapons (5 different pass-catchers), as he lined up all over the field: 8 snaps at LB, 11 snaps at outside CB, 39 snaps in the slot, and 4 snaps at SS. He was targeted a team-high 10 times, but allowed only 3 receptions for 40 yards — including an INT and 2 PDs. Throwing into Skrine’s coverage yielded a 4.2(!) passer rating.” via PFF

Stock Down: Josh McCown, Mo Wilkerson, Elijah McGuire

Josh McCown: I know the stats look nice, and he wasn’t absolutely god awful…but McCown just isn’t a great QB. He proved that he was not the future in this game, no clutch drive, threw some mind boggling passes, and wasted timeouts that were desperately needed late in the game. #GameManager

Mo Wilkerson: Amazing talent, no effort. Trade Mo.

Elijah McGuire: Ten rushing attempts for 22 yards is never good, plus getting outperformed by a guy who was signed last week in Travaris Cadet is not a good look.

    Am I crazy, or would we not have killed for a “game manager” in the mold of McCown in ’09 and ’10? He’s not going to win us games, but nor is he going to lose us games. Someone needs to do a deep dive analysis on how the franchise just completely went off the rails (or were they just lucky to get that tantilizingly close in the first place). Drafting the Sanchise, plus starting him Week 1; Drafting heavy on Defense when the Offense clearly needed focus; Relying on retread WRs to bring along a new QB; Not going all out on a edge rusher (still scarred from the Gholston bust); and so on.
