Jets fans watching their offense slowly move the ball in the fourth quarter Sunday in Pittsburgh must have felt like they were watching a repeat of the Patriots-Jets game a week before.
This time, it was the Jets offense that burned nearly nine minutes of clock time time without getting any points.
Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer is taking criticism in New York for his lack of urgency and general disorganization calling plays during the drive, then for his decisions when the Jets reached the goal line.
“The problem was the headset kept going out multiple times during the game,” quarterback Mark Sanchez said via the New York Daily News when describing the confusion that marked the drive. “I had to run over and get a couple of calls, piece together some calls in the headset that came in broken up.”
