After being burned on the first play of the game, the Jets defensive line was outstanding for the rest of the night. Damon Harrison led the way, stepping up in the place of Kenrick Ellis. Harrison recorded 7 tackles, 2 of which for loss. Sheldon Richardson was the other star, as the rookie had 2 hits on the quarterback and a sack. Other notable guys were Muhammad Wilkerson, Douzable, and Tevita Finau.
The Jets receiving corps has been a issue throughout training camp, but Spadola continues to be a bright spot. The un-drafted free agent out of Lehigh had a huge night. He caught 3 passes for 110 yards, including a 70 yard reception to set the Jets up for the win, and a 22 yard touchdown. Spadola has 100% earned a roster spot with his outstanding play last night.
On a night where Geno Smith turned the ball over four times and mark Sanchez got hurt, Matt Simms was great. Simms finished the night 6/10, for 120 yards, and a touchdown. He threw a clutch touchdown to Spadola to send to take the lead late, and showed off a cannon. Simms won't be the starter, but he has some tools to be a good quarterback.
