Here comes the blitz

Run, Geno run (slide, Geno slide)

Pretty stuff from Geno to Cumberland (full passing breakdown coming tomorrow)

Kraken…fast enough to celebrate at the 35 yard line

This is happy Rex

Leftover observations…

1. Geno Smith needs to protect himself when running the football. He won’t last all season taking the amount of hits he did Sunday.

2. Brian Winters and Breno Giacomini, arguably the two biggest question marks on the Jets offensive line heading into the season, were both terrific, while former Jet Austin Howard struggled. At least for one day, the trade off from Howard to Giacomini looks smart, as does the third round selection of Winters.

3. Catch the ball, Calvin. This team needs to force turnovers and Pryor needs to be a big part of that happening. A good debut for the rookie but he needs to make that play moving forward.

4. …Speaking of that, the Jets luck on fumbles has to improve this season right?

5. Impressive debut from Jalen Saunders at punt returner. This is not an easy job, especially for a rookie and Saunders cleanly handled all types of kicks and situations in his debut. Well done, rook.

6. Good to see Trevor Reilly and TJ Barnes active on defense, Reilly in particular showed good versatility in his limited snaps. How about Saalim Hakim being put in at cornerback to blitz on two separate occasions?

7. It was encouraging to see Chris Johnson run so well in-between the tackles as a north/south runner and not shy away from any contact.

8. Only 12 snaps and 1 touch for Bilal Powell. There will be times this season he comes in handy for the Jets but this past Sunday wasn’t that week.

9. Only 12 snaps for Tommy Bohanon…well done, Marty.

10. We rag him plenty (and he deserves it) but Kyle Wilson had a solid game. He tackled well and avoided being picked on in the slot.
