I’m going to go out on a limb and agree with Carlos Rodgers statement of saying the Jets quit. The San Francisco 49ers’ defense stifled the New York Jets in anything they tried to do. In fact it was the first shutout home loss for the Jets since 1977. Mark Sanchez barely threw for over 10o yards, and the running game was non-existent. Thus the New York Jets were handed a nice shellacking by the score of 34-0 on their home turf.
“It kinda seemed like, after a while they just, I know, looking at their defense, they didn’t want to be out there,” said Rogers on Sirius XM radio today. “And after that it’s like, man, these guys don’t really want to play the game. You know, it’s pretty much over.
“You could see it happening,” Rogers said. “It kinda shocked me just because, you know, a lot of guys were saying on the sideline, ‘Oh, they don’t want to tackle, they don’t want to do this, they don’t want to do that.’ That’s a Rex Ryan defense. That’s a Rex Ryan team.
Rogers said it was out of character for a Ryan defense to behave that way.
“His defense, you know, plays throughout. And that was the shocking point about it…. It really kind of shocked me to see that them guys were ready to go get in the showers.”
