Analysis: A tremendous effort by Cromartie, who stayed on the field despite a hip injury that plagued him the entire season. He acknowledged he wasn't playing well, but he refused to shut it down and actually played better toward the end. ... The Jets mistakenly made Reed an every-down player as soon as he arrived, reducing Allen to an afterthought. After three ineffective games, they made Reed a situational player and his performance improved. Chalk it up to trial and error. ... Milliner missed three games due to injury and was benched in three others, but he still wound up with a healthy amount of P.T. That will prove invaluable for the future. ... It was an odd year for Walls, who was the Fireman. When Milliner was in the dog house, Walls started. When Milliner was playing, Walls was the forgotten man.
