Found December 25, 2011 on Turn On the Jets:
Third and ten from the 1 yard line. The New York Jets held a 7-3 lead and had put together an encouraging performance so far. One ten yard out route, two missed tackles, a poor angle, and 99 yards later. The game was over. If you have watched the Jets this season, you knew at that moment they didn’t have the character or the team this year to overcome that type of play. I remember from the Oakland game when they couldn’t bounce back from a muffed kick.

Coal In The Stocking: Jets Lose 29-14

Merry Christmas Jets fans! Your team gave you the gift of inexplicably trying to throw 59 times. 59! En route to an embarrassing 29-14 loss. I am putting this loss squarely on the shoulders of the Jets offense, notably Brian Schottenheimer who called an awful game and Mark Sanchez who came up small in a big spot. I defend Sanchez as much as anybody but he looked skittish all day...
