Woodhead was not on the Jets' PS - he was cut from their 53-man roster...


You're right, he had been on the practice squad in 2008, but was on the active roster more recently. Thanks for pointing that out.


Those INTs were nice, but they were practically gift-wrapped by Fitzpatrick. There is a reason why he was initially behind Trent Edwards on the Buffalo depth chart. He certainly isn't a check-down artist like Edwards. He's willing to throw deep, and he's more mobile than the average QB, but he is not an accurate passer. Those INTs were both the result of a typically sailing overthrow by Fitzpatrick. A more accurate passer wouldn't have made those mistakes.

You can argue that those INTs were also a product of a good pass-rush by the Pats, which is probably reasonable. But the better teams on the Pats' schedule have a stronger O-line and more accurate QBs. The Pats' defensive backs might have demonstrated nice hands yesterday, but they continue to blow coverage assignments and misread routes against mediocre wide receivers. Lee Evans is the only legitimate talent Buffalo has in its receiving corps. But all the cornerbacks looked overmatched yesterday. It was tough to watch. The loss of Leigh Bodden is proving to be devastating to this defense.

On the bright side, the front seven on the defense has performed pretty well. the rookie linebackers are contributing and the line has withstood the loss of Ty Warren quite well. If the DBs can improve with experience during the course of the season, there is hope. James Sanders MUST improve his tackling, however. He used to be a solid 3rd safety on this team. What the heck happened to him?
