Leave it to the New York Jets to steal defeat from the jaws of victory.
Dungy on final play of the game: “You can’t all-out blitz now here, can you? Leaving your corner one-on-one, are you kidding me?”
Simms: “Why is the corner jumping on the underneath route?”
Dungy: “Why is he one-on-one?”
Harrison to Dungy on the all-out blitz call by defensive coordinator Gregg Williams giving up the game-winning TD pass: “If you’re Adam Gase, do you overrule that?”
Dungy: “You practice that before it ever happens … As you know, your Friday practice, your Saturday practice, ‘Hey, here’s the last play of the game. How are we going to play it?’ That was unbelievable.”
Harrison: “It seemed like they were trying to lose to get the number one (draft) pick.”
Harrison: “They better be glad I don’t own the Jets. Gregg Williams and Adam Gase would both be unemployed (Monday).”
Former Jets quarterback and current WFAN host Boomer Esiason reached a similar conclusion while discussing the game on CBS. Per WFAN:
“I have a headache thinking about this … the fact that Gregg Williams would play that coverage in that situation? It’s almost like the Jets drew that up to lose the game.”
Should Williams and Gase manage to keep their jobs, they will visit the 8-4 Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
