Jets escape Meadowlands with win over inept Chiefs despite Favre's 3 interceptions

Thank goodness.

Say what you want about the performance of the team and anything else, but all that matters is who wins and who loses. The New York Jets won this football game. Forget about how they played, and forget about the negatives. They accomplished what they needed to do, and they are in the same position they would be if they had beaten the Chiefs by 40.

That being said...

Brett Favre, I know you're a gunslinger who likes to take chances down the field. But can they at least be calculated risks? Not double coverage down the field or quick sidearmed passes over the middle? Sometimes, you just need to throw the ball away or dare I say check it down?

I know I was on the playcalling for the Raiders game because they didn't go downfield at all, but I'm angry this game because the Jets tried to be too aggressive. It's just that the coaching staff has no clue what to do on offense. Throw the ball twice as often as you run the ball against the 13th ranked pass defense and the dead last rush defense. It makes no sense.

They pass the ball when they should run the ball, and they run the ball when they should throw the ball. I can't complain too much because for the most part they were able to score, but the turnovers also allowed the Chiefs to score.

Three turnovers, one returned for a touchdown, and two others giving the Chiefs fairly good field position helped them score and stay close.

But what might have been even more alarming is the way the Jets treated Tyler Thigpen so hospitably. The Jets made the previously horrible Thigpen look like a seasoned veteran, as he went 25-36 for 280 yards and 2 touchdowns.

It was the third straight game the Jets' defense did not force a turnover after forcing 7 against the Cardinals, a very bad sign heading into Buffalo next week. The Jets were able to move the ball well enough offensively and forced just enough stalled Chiefs drives to win this week, but they can't expect to play the same way as they have for the past three weeks next week and expect to come away with a win.

This team just has no identity right now. Hopefully next week, the Jets can take a step forward and establish some consistency on offense and develop a way to force turnovers on defense. Consistent pressure on defense will also be a priority as the Jets have trouble rushing quarterbacks into bad decisions. Thigpen had open receivers and plenty of time to find them.

There were a few positives though. Leon Washington had two electric touchdowns, and Laveranues Coles's game-winner was a thing of beauty. Favre was able to lead a late 4th quarter drive to get the Jets in position to have a chance to win for the second straight week. Chansi Stuckey and Dustin Keller also had more extended roles in the offense, and Laveranues Coles and Chansi Stuckey both had good games, though Coles and Keller both had drops.

The Jets survived and advanced from the three cupcakes, going 2-1. 3-0 would have been a huge boost to this team, but the Jets clearly are not yet among the elite in the AFC. The talent is there, but can the coaching staff get this team on the same page in time to get a playoff spot?
