Out of every team in the NFL, you would assume that the New York Jets would have quarterbacks that are well-versed in tackling.

One quarterback has committed 50 turnovers in two seasons and another is on the punt team. Thus, shouldn't they at least go over proper form in practice?

Apparently not. Either that, or Greg McElroy hasn't been paying attention.

On this particular play, Corey Lynch intercepted a McElroy pass (I originally typed Sanchez. Old habits die hard) and began weaving his way up the field. McElroy, presumably, took offense to this and decided he was going to make a statement with a devastating open-field tackle.

Or he was going to dive limply to the left a good yard ahead of Lynch. It's open to interpretation.

All in all, it was a normal Sunday for the Jets. They made enough mistakes to allow the San Diego Chargers to escape with a 10-point victory.

Go ahead and break out the egg nog, Jets fans. You deserve it.
