Jets' Josh Cribbs exits game with sling


If the Jets’ day couldn’t get any worse after an embarassing performance from basically the entire team, kick return specialist Josh Cribbs left with a sling to help his injured right shoulder.

From ESPN,

The Jets announced in the second quarter that Cribbs had left the game, and he did not return any kicks or run the ball out of the Wildcat during his brief playing time.

Antonio Cromartie handled kickoffs with Cribbs sidelined, while Kyle Wilson returned punts. Cromartie had a nice day averaging 31.5 yards on his four returns.

During a game in which the Jets benched starting quarterback Geno Smith, the loss of Cribbs meant the Jets were without an emergency quarterback.

The Jets needed more than an emergency quarterback, it looked like they needed a whole new offense. They were just not clicking at all today against the Baltimore Ravens, and as a result, had to bench starting quarterback for Matt Simms.

What do you think of the New York Jets right now? Are they going to be able to find a way to make things work down the stretch this season, or will they have to do some major re-evaluating and reassessing?
