Game Notes

It was another dominating preseason victory for the Jets on Saturday night at the Meadowlands…

The Jets and Giants had their annual preseason clash on Saturday night, with the Jets coming out on top by the score of 28-7. Herm Edwards said there were some positives and negatives in the game. He was not pleased with the Jets third-down defense, and felt the team needs to work on stopping the big third-down play. Forcing other teams to punt more often would put WR Santana Moss on the field more often on returns, and Edwards said that's exactly what they're hoping to do. Of De Shaun Ellis, Edwards said, "Shaun obviously had the sack, but he played the run really consistent for us." Edwards prides himself on penalty-free football, and was not happy with the five penalties the team racked up on Saturday. On the offensive side, Edwards had good things to say about T Kareem McKenzie. "McKenzie had a nice game, playing against one of the better ends in the league [Michael Strahan]." The Jet quarterbacks had another crisp performance, and Edwards said that QB Chad Pennington has really progressed. "Chad has come a long way since the mini camp when he didn't want to throw the ball.
