They are getting ripped, and rightly so, for failing to hold a lead over the Jets because they called three running plays, fell short and punted when they needed to hold onto the ball. Let me go into this a little deeper, just to show you how gutless this approach is. Their 91-yard pick for a TD was wonderful, but it also got their defense on the field right away, with no rest. After that score they somehow managed to force the Jets to punt, and now, with a three-point lead, the game was theirs. Holding onto the ball and keeping their defense off the field was a must because these poor guys had seen 33 plays run off against them, offset by the six their offense had run. Run three times, punt, hand the other guys the ball, and the game, take your shower, listen to a few speeches, get on your plane and go home. Next week you clap your hands and yell, "Let's go get 'em!" when every fiber of your being is saying, "How do I get out of here?"
