Three on O: Boyle, Warren, Glaser

After each game, we'll be highlighting three defensive and three offensive players and looking in detail at their performance. We'll wrap up today with the offense:

Curses! Boyled again!

Tim Boyle's first regular season action as a Jet was pretty underwhelming. He moved the chains a couple of times but two of his three drives ended in turnovers.

Boyle was pretty shaky. Even on passes he managed to complete, he looked a bit tentative. While he did complete one outside to Xavier Gipson for a first down, Jeremy Ruckert and Garrett Wilson each had to dive for one that should have been a first down.

Boyle's final pass of the day was intercepted as a defensive back jumped in front of his fourth down pass but he was already lucky not to be intercepted twice before that as he had passes batted up into the air.

His final numbers were unimpressive: 7-for-14 for 33 yards. However, he did have one pass dropped, one incompletion on a miscommunication and one where his receiver fell down.

On the basis of this performance he could really struggle on Friday against Miami. However, in the same situation, Mike White looked shaky in relief but then played well with a full week of preparation so hopefully that makes a difference for Boyle too.

We'll learn more about Boyle on Friday. In doing so, we may also learn more about Zach Wilson in terms of how realistic it was to expect him to succeed under the conditions he's been facing.

Warren Beat-y

Third round rookie Carter Warren probably wasn't expected to see action this year but he ended up playing almost the whole game at left tackle after Mekhi Becton got hurt. It's interesting that the Jets put him in rather than Dennis Kelly, who has 50 career starts and plenty of scheme familiarity.

Warren looked pretty comfortable in pass protection most of the time but he had some bad breakdowns as he gave up a team-high five total pressures. One of these saw AJ Epenesa blow by him on an inside move and another came on the two-point conversion as his man separated late. His worst moment came as he tried to pick up Ed Oliver on a stunt, though.

In the running game, Warren was also inconsistent - albeit in a group that was all pretty ineffective as a unit. He did have a couple of moments where he showed promise though.

Here's one where he drove his man off the line to create a cutback lane for Dalvin Cook:

On this one, he gets out to the second level and seals his man off well to spring the best run of the day:

On the whole, Warren was not good, but he did have some positive reps to showcase the potential the Jets hopefully see in him. It was always clear that he was a player who was picked with an expectation of not contributing much until year two at the earliest.

With Becton and Duane Brown potentially available on Friday, we may not see Warren again this year. Then again, with the way things have gone on the offensive line, he could still start several more games.

Glaser focused

Warren wasn't the only Jets player seeing his first regular season action on the line, as Chris Glaser was named as the starting right guard. He played the whole game, even filling in at center for three plays when Joe Tippmann had a minor injury and Jake Hanson filled in at guard.

Glaser has been on and off the Jets' roster and practice squad multiple times since beginning his career as an undrafted rookie with the Chiefs last year. He had played two games as a practice squad elevation where he just saw action on special teams but then ended up on the Dallas practice squad, although the Jets recently poached him back.

In Sunday's game, Glaser held his own in the running game, although - as noted - the team didn't have much success running the ball. He showed some good aggressiveness, staying on his block and playing through the whistle.

Possibly his biggest contribution, though, was when he drew a personal foul from Jordan Phillips on the first offensive snap of his career.

He only got beaten a couple of times in pass protection but was responsible for a half-sack on this play:

Glaser is a popular teammate and can play both guard or center. A spot start like this where he wasn't a total disaster helps his chances of staying in the league over the next few years as a utility backup or even someone who could yet establish himself as a fringe starter down the road.
