Johnathan Joseph — C
If Joseph hoped to disprove he is overpaid, going up against Santonio Holmes would have been his preferred option. But his sore groin made him vulnerable to whomever the Jets put up against him.
Every player has a bad game occasionally, but Joseph was almost torched by CB Antonio Cromartie on a 30-yard pass that went out of bounds. He was also burned by Clyde Gates for 27 yards.
The Packers have four receivers who are superior to anyone on the Jets roster. Is five days enough time to heal up for that?
Kareem Jackson — B
Kareem’s confidence should be on the rise after a TD off an interception last week and the overall progress in his play. The interception he grabbed off a tipped ball could help offset the catches he gave up to Chas Schilens and Jeremy Kerley.
Brice McCain — B+
McCain was due for a good game after some stinkers and he finally got it. An interception and a key sack late in the game can cure what ails you.
He still seems to be playing catch up with some passes over the middle. But at least his string of embarrassing outings has been halted.
Danieal Manning — C
Both safeties must have forgotten how well they played versus the Titans. There were short passes and long passes given up by Manning, which is unusual for someone who tries to keep the play in front of him at all times.
Glover Quin — C
No QB trophy to mount on the wall for Quin this week. This time Glover was the victim.
If he did not come into the game taking the Jets tight ends seriously, he will remember Jeff Cumberland for some time to come. And the 27-yard touchdown he gave up to him.
