The Worst Part ...
... Kellen Clemens made the plays in the second half to conduct a dramatic comeback on the road verses an elite defense, after getting pounded in the first half, and he MADE THE THROWS on that final drive to close the deal, to tie this Ball Game and likely send it into OT
He threw a Gimmie TD to MaCareins on a slant to the endzone, in stride, dead on the money, and he drops it
Often times when that happens, even to the best QB's, they don't get another chance, especially verses an elite defense like the Ravens, it's like a batter hitting a homerun off an elite pitcher that curves JUST FOUL, you rarely see him hit another in that AB, he missed his shot
But Clemens threw another one that was low to Coles in the endzone, TOUGH CATCH so you can't kill Coles for not making the play, but that's a TOUGH CATCH Coles makes far more often than not .. 9 times out of 10 that's a TD to Lavaranues Coles, and the idea of getting a third chance verses the Ravens was preposterous
But Clemens hit McCareins in the endzone one more time, and much like his first drop this one hit MaCareins in the wrong spot .. HIS HANDS .. which took the tying TD and turned it into a Game ending INT
And that's even worse than the loss in my view, cause this kid faced a ferocious defense on the road in his first ever start and he conducted a BRILLIANT 4TH QTR COMEBACK ... BRILLIANT AND GUTSY AS IT GETS .. and he was denied that Glory because Justin McCareins CAN'T CATCH!!
It's sickening, this kid earned that Glory with as tough a performance as you will ever see in your life from a neophyte QB making his first NFL start .. you can hardly ask for a tougher assignment than to make that start in Baltimore verses the feriocous Ravens defense, and this kid took a massive beating in the first half, but he got off the deck and led as BRILLIANT/TOUGH a comeback as you will ever see from a neophyte QB in his first start
That he was denied that Glory, WIN or LOSE, the Glory of leading this team all the way back from 17 down to tie that game at the wire, is the cruel twist after you get past the loss
BUT WE KNOW BETTER
WE KNOW WHAT WE SAW, DON'T WE?
The Jets have their franchise QB to build around, NO NEED TO LOOK ANYWHERE ELSE, no need to draft and QB's high, this kid is the REAL DEAL and we can definitely take solice in that
