New York Jets Vs Pittsburgh Steelers 9-16-2012 0 views

Revis is out for the Jets due to a concussion suffered last week. Kyle Wilson will have his hands full here against either Antonio Brown or Mike Wallace. Huge blow for the Jets.
Yea I think the Jets are in trouble this game. That wasn't the real New York team we saw last week, they played Buffalo. Now we'll see how they play against a real defense. Tough place to play in Pittsburgh

Without Revis, that does spell trouble.

The Jets have improved on the defensive line and may be able to generate a strong enough pass rush, but with Big Ben back there the chances of actually getting him are slim to none at best. He is a slippery guy for his size.

Add that to the speed of the Steelers wide outs means big trouble.

Sanchez needs to prove he can do that week in and week out against teams like this Pittsburgh team before anyone will take him seriously.

Also take into consideration the desperation that the home town Steelers will be playing under considering this is a must win situation for them with the Ravens already jumping out to an early lead and voila !!! I'm not counting the Jets out of this game, should be close, but it appears as though you have a recipe that may leave the NY Jets cooked (pardon the pun)

Agree on no Revis, big trouble. Fitzpatrick gift wrapped the game to the Jets. CJ Spiller ran big too. Sanchez doesn't have enough general football experience to tackle a Dick Lebeau defense. Just his career passer rating and TD:INT ratio alone is enough to bet against him this week. I'm glad the public is high on Sanchez.

Plus the fact that he's a starting QB and can have any gal he wants he goes out and fetches 37 yr old Eva Longoria,,,? SERIOUSLY???

Hey Ivan,

You mean she's used but, not used up!! I still think he CAN do a lot better with women but NOT Football!!

Sanchez can get a whole lot better as a QB. He had a great game throwing 3 TD's against Buffalo but doing it in Pittsburgh will be a different story.
Hey Ivan,

Go back and read what his So.Cal Coach said about him coming out early to play in the NFL!!


People have been on Sanchez's case ever since he was drafted. Most QBs that enter the NFL do not have stellar rookie seasons.

Even the ones' that do seem to tail off slightly in seasons afterward simply because the league figures out ways to stop or slow them down some in the following years.

Sanchez is entering his 4th season and other than the early brain cramp when tossing the pick when the only good that would have resulted was a 2 yard gain with that shovel pass, looked pretty good from that point on.

I am looking forward to Sunday to see if he has improved or not, but I am not going to judge him, good or bad, after week 1. If you review his 1st 3 years of statistics, he has improved, even if slightly, over those years.

The big reason why I still think he has his best years to come are as follows:

  • He has taken a beating physically, never complains, and always steps back under center game in and game out
  • In the play off games he has played in, he has performed at his best. He plays well under pressure.
  • He celebrates by eating hot dogs on the sidelines of games they have sewn up

I honestly don't see the Jets winning here, but I also don't think Sanchez will be the reason they lose, the NY Jets are already banged up on defense early (like the Steelers), and the Steelers are desperate as pointed out earlier in the thread. Good luck all :)
