    I agree we didn't have to ram the ball down their throughts but a few more first downs would have helped at least get in field goal range and get Crosby some well needed practice.

    Look we had played this team twice in six days. I think, me included, the Coaching staff felt the Vikes wern't coming back with that QB and were just accepting the final conclusion. I think it was conservatism with a reason.

    This is correct. We were saving something for the next game. We aren't going to show everything we can against a pathetic Joe Webb led Vikings' team.

    The Heidi Bowl is often mis-remembered. It was a close, see-saw game. The Jets, with a 3 point lead, kicked off with about a minute on the clock when the network cut away from the broadcast. Lamonica led Oakland to a quick TD, and the Jets fumbled the ensuing kickoff to end the game. It should not be remembered as some kind of furious comeback...it it notorious as a network gaff compounded by the fact it was an exciting game all the way through.

    A bit of obscure trivia: Lamonica was a Packer draftee who opted for the AFL.

    The Frank Reich Bills comeback against Houston is the gold standard. This was not shaping up to be that kind of game.
