Found October 18, 2011 on Turn On The Jets:

Quarterback (B-) 14/25, 201 yards, a rushing touchdown, and a passing touchdown. It wasn’t a great performance from Mark Sanchez but he improved as the game went on. The slow start falls on him and Brian Schottenheimer as he needs to come out in better rhythm. The lapses of accuracy remain concerning but Sanchez still has a way of making big plays when everything breaks down around him.

Running Backs (C) – Shonn Greene remains thoroughly average. LaDainian Tomlinson had a little giddy-up in his step, as you know he is licking his chops thinking about this week’s game against San Diego. I do think the Jets need to consider shifting more carries to Tomlinson and Joe McKnight, who made a few nice receptions split out at wide receiver.

Wide Receivers (C) – Santonio Holmes was electric when he was able to get the football in his hands. Plaxico Burress looked sluggish and disinterested, which should be a cause for concern moving forward. Jeremy Kerley had a nice third down conversion but also had a dropped pass.

Tight Ends (B) – A pair of big plays from Dustin Keller, who still needs to be more involved in the passing game. Matthew Mulligan had good contributions in the running game.

Offensive Line (B+) – Very good pass protection but the push in the running game is still lacking. It is nice to see improvement from Wayne Hunter, who had his best game of the season.

Defensive Line (B-) – The run defense could have been better but it looks like Kenrick Ellis has the potential to be a very good player alongside Muhammad Wilkerson moving forward.

Linebackers (B+) – 2 sacks from Calvin Pace, 2 forced fumbles from Aaron Maybin and a huge hit on Matt Moore from David Harris that forced an interception…an overdue night of playmaking from the Jets linebackers.

Secondary (A) – The “A” is all for Darrelle Revis, who put on a show last night. He came up with a 100 yard interception return for a touchdown when it looked the Jets season may be on the brink. Kyle Wilson also had a hell of a night in the slot covering Davone Bess.

Special Teams (D) – I am dropping them all the way down because of the muffed kick return…that is two this year, c’mon man. Nick Folk and TJ Conley are both quietly having very good years.

Coaching (C) – A win is a win but let’s beat San Diego before saying things are turned around. Also what was that play call with LaDainian Tomlinson attempting a pass to Mark Sanchez? Really?

Transcripts: Holmes, Revis, Sanchez 10/17

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes, 10.17 On his touchdown catch… (It) was a good job by Mark (Sanchez) of first, stepping up in the pocket and eluding the tackler.  He got the ball to me quick and I didn’t know where the defender was from that point on.  The rest that happened was the blocking downfield with Plax (Plaxico Burress) and (Jeremy) Kerley, and the rest was history...

Jets end 3-game skid, beat Dolphins (AP)
