Matt Forte unhappy with New York Jets offensive playcalling

Todd Bowles still believes in the aging Matt Forte

The New York Jets fell to the Atlanta Falcons 25-20 on a rainy day in East Rutherford, NJ on Sunday. He was hired by head coach Todd Bowles to be the team's offensive coordinator this past offseason after spending the last two seasons as the New Orleans Saints wide receivers coach.

The Jets threw away three drives in the second half with the Falcons against the ropes.

The Saints now have a 4-2 record. Time will tell and it may tell as early as tomorrow.

The Jets came so close again this week to beating a good opponent, but not being able to finish the game strong cost them for a third week in a row.

"Really that was a team defense", Quinn said. The Jets will next host the Bills on Thursday night. "That part of the game felt real familiar in terms of everybody just being assignment-sound, doing their jobs, not stepping out of the gaps to go make a play".

"I'm just here to do my job for my brothers", Jones said. But there were doubts as to whether this year's squad would be a playoff-caliber team.




"Outside there was a lot of noise, but not inside", Quinn said. "So, that kind of resiliency, that kind of toughness is what this group stands for".

The Jets, though, haven't been particularly effective running the ball.

Quinn had nothing but praise for the run defense, which held the Jets to a season-low 43 yards on 22 carries.

"(There) should have been at least one person getting 20 carries, something like that, with the way the weather was", said Forte, who had four carries for 7 yards. "I mean, we're going to handle that. But I would say I was probably more pleased from a pass protection standpoint than all the way finishing through on the run game".

Sit Kerley this week and don't even think twice about it. Find any other viable option via the waiver wire since chances are, this will be the weekly case with Kerley unless he either makes some huge plays in the little reps he gets or someone ahead of him gets hurt and his number is called.
