Jets hold Chiefs to four yards in first half

All season, the Jets have been looking for a way to make their offense look better.

Turns out that all they needed to do was invite the Chiefs for a visit. In the first half at the Meadowlands, the Jets offense looked like something coached by Bill Walsh and run by Joe Montana instead of the normally frustrating Brian Schottenheimer/Mark Sanchez product. Sanchez has thrown two touchdowns, Shonn Greene has scored twice once (giving him four touchdowns in the last two weeks) and the Jets have outgained the Chiefs 253-4 on their way to a 28-3 halftime lead.

You read that right. The Chiefs gained four yards in the first half.

Jim Leonhard’s knee injury was just about the only thing that went wrong for the home side, but the impact of that loss isn’t likely to be felt until Kansas City leaves town. Tyler Palko has spent the first two quarters further confirming that he has no way to threaten an NFL defense. That doesn’t figure to be a halftime adjustment to change that around. It wouldn’t be shocking to see Ricky Stanzi get a chance to play, if only because he can’t possibly be any worse than the guy currently in the game for the Chiefs.

It also wouldn’t be shocking to see Mark Brunell get a chance to play because there’s a pretty good chance that the competitive portion of the afternoon is over in New Jersey.

    Why exactly is Orton still rotting on the sideline? Palko is a joke.

    The Chiefs are just plain terrible. I had them pegged to win the West before week 1. Looking back to last week, how bad must the Bears actually be? Geeze.

    Orton’s inactive this week, isn’t he?

    Meanwhile in Washington the ref’s have been seen openly felating Tom Brady on the sidelines between possesions.

    That’s ok — it’ll average out.

    The Chiefs get the Packers and their leaky defense next week at Arrowhead!

    Shonn Greene has 1 TD, not 2.

    This really highlights the Bears need for Jay Cutler, considering they lost to this Chiefs squad last week… home. One of the most under-appreciated QB’s in the league, until now.

    Having never played QB at any level, I’m pretty sure I’m as good as Palko.

    Tyler Palocko may be the QB to ever step on the field for the Chiefs and we have seen some bad ones !

    Is Tom Moore the offensive consultant this week ?

    Tyler Palko sucks


    Brodie Croyle

    Ok Haley enough is enough. This guy is not an nfl caliber qb. He’s not even a capable backup. You must start Stanzi and at least give the team a reason to go and try to play. Cannot keep going three and out or everybody will start to pack it in. Think maybe they already have.
