Blewett’s Blitz breaks down the New York Jets horrible Week 2 performance which raises serious concerns moving forward.
Are you ready? Probably not. Not until you’ve watched the newest edition of Blewett’s Blitz will you truly understand what went down in the New York Jets‘ miserable 31-13 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Despite excellent first-down rushing from Frank Gore and the offensive line, Adam Gase’s unit simply could not get anything going on second down and beyond. A strict conservative game plan sort of took Sam Darnold and the rest of the offense out of the game.
The lone highlight-reel glimpse that Darnold can still make the eye-popping play came in garbage time. The California kid scrambled outside of the pocket and to his left while Braxton Berrios saw it and broke off his route to the inside. Darnold’s uncanny on-the-run ability did the rest as he threw a strike against the grain.
Mekhi Becton was once again stellar and even pancaked a guy or two. Quinnen Williams stepped up defensively and put forth the first multi-sack game of his young career. What happened on the first play of the game against the Raheem Mostert pitch is dissected, as is the game plan Gase executed.
Did Gase completely take the downfield power out of Darnold’s hands or did the team simply not execute? Is it as simple as the talent on the field or coaching staff prowess?
Blewett’s Blitz answers those questions and a host of others as the 0-2 New York Jets ready themselves for a tough Indianapolis Colts squad on the road.
