Plaxico Buress

This is my first game as a weekend editor, so I?m testing things out. While watching the game, I?ve recorded my thoughts, which you?ll find below. Since this is preseason, I?m more than open to criticism. If you?ve enjoyed this, let me know, and if I?ve missed anything, speak up. Let?s go Jets!

The Jets won the coin flip but deferred, giving Cincinnati the ball to start things off. The Jets d-line dominated, and Bengals ran it twice and threw an incomplete pass before punting it to the Jets 43. Kerley caught the punt and blasted it 8 yards to the Bengals 49.

When the Jets got the ball, Sanchez?s confidence was still a little low, as it tends to be early in games. He hit Burress for a nice gain on his first passing attempt, but his second one, again to Burress, was into tight coverage. Then, his timing was incredibly out of sync with Keller on 3rd sending him to the sidelines visibly upset. Fortunately, his defense stepped up on the first play of the Bengals? drive. Eric Smith picked off Andy Dalton?s pass, and make a very effective case for his starting at safety. Thinking quickly, he tossed the ball to Revis, a much more nimble and evasive player, who stretched the pick another 22 yards. Starting at the Bengals 16, Sanchez was back in it. He threw a quick TD pass to Holmes, and, thanks to his defense, he was soaring.

Giant fans are sitting back tonight gritting their teeth. Another non-move or near-miss by GM Jerry Reese this preseason has come back to haunt them. Yes, they made an offer to WR Plaxico Burress, but it wasn't enough. He signed with the Jets.

How does Plaxico Burress help your offense? Let me count the ways....he catches everything, cannot be single-covered and blocks like a TE. He is a quarterback's best friend.

In the lanky WR's first game since shooting himself in the leg in November 2008, he's playing like he never left the game. In the pouring rain at NMS tonight, Burress hauled in three Mark Sanchez passes for a total of 66 yards in the first half.
