Ben Roethlisberger: The guy is magic, even if he’s a sexual predator. He masks the shortcomings of an offensive line like no one I’ve seen besides Peyton Manning, except he does it more with brawn and moxie than intelligence. The Steelers win was more due to him than anyone else on their team today, and that is often the case.
Ryan Clark: The guy doesn’t get enough credit, but he wasn’t on the field vs Denver and that was felt in their loss. You didn’t see him blow too many things up this evening, but he was part of the reason the Steelers didn’t miss Polamalu as much as expected.
Garrett McIntyre: The only guy on the Jets defense who mastered the surprisingly rare ability of tackling Ben Roethlisberger.
Mark Sanchez: Last week’s beautiful princess turned into this week’s bleating, incompetent goat. Communications issues continued with the WR corps, and given the fact that it seems to extend to every WR on the Jets’ roster, you have to look towards the QB. Let the Tebow talk begin.
Bart Scott: He may be lighter and faster, but he’s still missing tackles after his big miss on Spiller last week.
The Jets’ Medical Staff: Shonn Greene pretty obviously suffered a concussion in the first half. Sanchez ushered a dizzy, off balance Greene from the field. He came back and still looked out of sorts.
He didn’t get many snaps, but if there was any time Jets fans wanted to see more Tebow, it was probably today. Sanchez was horrific in the 2nd half. Tebow had a nice 22 yard run but didn’t produce anything else in limited snaps. After the game, Rex Ryan insinuated that less Tebow plays were run because the injured Shonn Greene is heavily involved in a lot of those plays. I’m sure future opponents will take note of that.
