There were a lot of things we could have done better
Posted On 12/31/2019 00:55:35 by linchao
Sam Darnold and the New York Jets were back on the practice field after some time away.Time enough to mostly clear their heads of the miserable 21-17 loss at Cleveland last Thursday  Baker Mayfield Jersey White , not that the sting was easy to brush off in the few days since."Yeah, they've been pretty hard," rookie quarterback Sam Darnold acknowledged Monday. "I'm not going to lie to you guys."New York is 1-2 after playing three games in 11 days and riding a roller coaster of emotions during that brief span. From the highs of a dominant victory at Detroit in the opener to the uneasiness of a loss to AFC East-rival Miami at home six days later to the frustration and disappointment of being the first team to lose to the Browns since 2016.Now comes the big test for not just Darnold, but the rest of the Jets 鈥?including Todd Bowles and his coaching staff. With a game at Jacksonville on tap next, New York needs to rebound from the defeat in Cleveland to prevent the season from spiraling."I don't think it's going to be tough at all," Bowles insisted. "It's a long season, we understand that. If we would have won, we would have moved past it. We lost the game, we're going to move past it."All eyes will be on Darnold, of course Womens Bernie Kosar Jersey , as they have been from the moment he became the future 鈥?and now, present 鈥?of the franchise.The 21-year-old rookie is supremely confident in himself, and has been lauded throughout his playing career for his ability to focus on the task at hand and not repeat mistakes. The Jaguars will surely be aiming to make Darnold uncomfortable on Sunday and force him into errors."Yeah, Jacksonville is a great defense," Darnold said. "Obviously, they've got great players, but they also just play together very well. That's what I noticed and that's going to be a fun challenge going up against them in their place."Bowles, for one, isn't concerned about Darnold shaking off his play 鈥?one touchdown, four interceptions 鈥?in New York's two losses."I think he'll come out of it fine Denzel Ward Jersey ," Bowles said. "I think Sam has the right mentality and he has the right work ethic to learn what he has done wrong, as well as the rest of the team. They come back out of it, and he's not in it by himself. We are in it as a team."And that's why the heat has been turned up a bit under Bowles, who's in his fourth season with the Jets and has a 21-30 record with no playoff appearances.Owner Christopher Johnson has said there is no postseason mandate for Bowles or general manager Mike Maccagnan. His main priority is seeing overall progress from the team, which makes this a critical stretch for the coach.An ugly loss such as the one against the Browns can send some teams into a freefall. From the sense he got with his players at practice, Bowles believes there will be no lingering effects."We don't carry anything too long," he said. "We have practice to get better at, and we have Jacksonville to get ready for, so we're on to the next one."Cornerback Trumaine Johnson, in his first season with the Jets after four with the Rams Jarvis Landry Jersey , echoed his coach's sentiments."We can't dwell on that loss," he said. "We've got 13, 14 more games in the season and hopefully the playoffs. Just move on from it."But, they also hope to learn from it, too. And fix the mistakes that put the Jets in this position in the first place."Yeah we could have coached better and we could have played better," Bowles said of blowing 14-3 and 17-14 leads in the second half. "All the way around on both sides of the ball, including special teams, we just couldn't make a play. There were a lot of things we could have done better that have hurt us in the past two or three weeks that we are going to try and work on."We understand that we need to do a better job on both sides."NOTES: The Daily News reported that the Jets have reached out to the Steelers to inquire about disgruntled running back Le'Veon Bell, but there's nothing imminent, according to several published reports. ESPN reported Sunday that Pittsburgh is willing to trade Bell Myles Garrett Jersey , who has yet to play this season while in a contract dispute. ... Bowles is hopeful S Marcus Maye will be closer to playing this week. The second-year safety has been sidelined the first three games with a foot injury.Browns special teams not so special The special teams unit for the Cleveland Browns had a less-than-inspiring start to the regular season.During the club’s Week 1 tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the special teams had a game-winning field goal blocked in overtime, struggled to control Pittsburgh’s return men on kicks, had a bad punt after a blocker was driven back into punter Britton Colquitt, and committed three penalties.While it didn’t result in a penalty, a fair catch in overtime by punt returner Jabrill Peppers when he had an open field in front of him did cost the Browns some valuable field position.Special teams coordinator Amos Jones looked to rectify that problem this week with a plan to replace Peppers with Antonio Callaway as the primary punt returner, but was overruled by head coach Hue Jackson, as Jones told clevelandbrowns.com:Normally it might raise a few eyebrows if a head coach, even one in the “CEO” role like Jackson, contradicts the wishes of his coordinators. After all Jim Brown Jersey White , the coordinators work with the players directly and presumably have an idea of the best fits for their units.But in the case of Jones, it might be such a bad idea to have someone looking over his shoulder.Jones spent the previous five years as the special teams coordinator with the Arizona Cardinals, who decided not to renew his contract after the 2017 season. During his time in Arizona, the special teams units were near the bottom of the league’s rankings on an annual basis. How bad was it? ESPN’s Josh Weinfuss detailed a few “highlights” near the end of last season:It was so bad that there is a website - fireamosjones.com - dedicated to detailing the transgressions.It has only been one game, and as has often been the case with the Browns in recent years there is “nowhere to go but up” for the special teams. And it is good that Jackson is paying attention to what Jones is up to with the special teams.But that also raises a big unanswered question. Why the heck did Jackson hire Jones in the first place?
