I found this on another site.

Up through the first 10 games of the season in which Law led the Jets to a sparkling 2-8 record (and followed it up with consecutive performances in losing efforts against the Saints and Patriots in which he posted zero passes defensed and zero passes intercepted before he made five interceptions in completely meaningless games that meant nothing to the Jets), here is the New York press' assessment of Law's performance for 2005, a season in which he ended up making $ milllion - and was unhappy:

Law's penalties hurting Jets Associated Press
Wed, Nov 23, 2005

Jets cornerback Ty Law can’t seem to figure out how to keep his hands off receivers.

Law was whistled for two penalties in a 27-0 loss to Denver on Sunday, bringing his team-leading total to nine penalties for 73 yards this season. Though the cornerback has five interceptions, his mistakes have been costly.

His first penalty against the Broncos was for holding, nullifying an incompletion on third-and-8. Instead of getting off the field, the Broncos offense wound up scoring a touchdown.

“Sometimes he forgets you just can’t use your hands as much as they let you use them before, and they’re calling him,” coach Herman Edwards said. “The problem is he’s gotten them in some critical situations, on third down when you’re off the field, not on first down.”

Indeed, the Jets (2-8) need all the breaks they can get. Law is not helping matters. The Jets signed him during training camp to help shore up a shaky secondary, but his play has been spotty at best. For the good plays there are a few bad ones.

Another example came in a win over the Buccaneers in October. An illegal contact call negated an interception by David Barrett. But Law made up for that mistake with an interception that set up a touchdown.

It has been tough for him to adjust to the measure implemented last season that limits the contact defensive backs can make with receivers.

Fair or not, it is known as the “Ty Law Rule” because of his aggressive play against the Indianapolis Colts when he was still with the Patriots.

After the Broncos loss, Law said he didn’t want to change the type of player he is.

“They tagged the call and made it for me, so I guess I`m the example and they`re going to magnify it,” Law said. “I can`t change my game and change who I am.”

But Edwards wants him to change for the good of the team.

"Our margin for error is very little, so when those type of things happen, you can go, ‘Man, he gives them another chance,’” Edwards said. “We can’t afford to give people second chances against us right now. That's not a good way to play for us.”

Here's an article following his poor performance against the Saints that contributed to the loss to the sad sack Saints that dropped the Jets to 2-9:

Law of average Jets pay penalty for mediocre By RICH CIMINI
DAILY NEWS SPORTS WRITER

When the Jets signed Ty Law in August, they envisioned him as the final piece in their championship puzzle. Eleven games into a Jets career that almost certainly will be one-and-done, Law is the puzzle.

The former All-Pro cornerback is tied for fourth in the AFC with five interceptions, but he has offset those big plays with a team-high nine penalties. Because of his championship pedigree, Law commands respect in the locker room, but there are those who see him as nothing more than a hired gun, using the Jets as a brief stopover on his way to another free-agent score.

One thing is certain: Law's wallet is getting bigger.

Two weeks ago, the Jets quietly renegotiated his contract, giving him a $3 million signing bonus, according to sources. The move baffled some league insiders, but the Jets did it because they received some concessions that will help their salary cap in future years. It certainly didn't help this year; his cap number jumped from $2.9 million to $3.6 million.
Counting bonuses, Law will make $6 million this season, a huge amount for a player who has been less than advertised. "What's clear is that his skills have declined," one NFL scout said yesterday. "He looks heavier than ever before and he's not as athletic as he used to be. To compensate, he has to do a lot of holding and grabbing, which explains all the penalties."

Law is struggling with the crackdown on illegal contact - aka the Ty Law Rule. He has more penalty yardage (73) than interception-return yardage (50). He has committed three illegal-contact penalties, and the only player in the league with more is the Redskins' Walt Harris (four), according to STATS.
Saints WR Joe Horn, who faced the Jets Sunday night, said Law got away with his aggressive tactics in the past because "he was with the Patriots and they overlooked it." Horn, not ready to dump him into the has-been category, claimed Law is "a great corner. He's still on his way to Hawaii."

If Law makes his fifth Pro Bowl, it'll be a crime, according to our scout. This much we know: He's not going to the Super Bowl. His personal Super Bowl will occur Sunday in Foxboro, where he will face the Patriots in what promises to be an emotional game.

His surgically repaired left foot, which scared away many potential suitors, still is bothering him. According to Herm Edwards, Law aggravated his foot injury on the Saints' winning drive in the fourth quarter, causing him to miss the final three plays, including the 30-yard TD pass to Devery Henderson.

Law isn't a liability, but he's no longer an elite corner. According to STATS, he has allowed completions on 21 of the 33 passes thrown at him, a ratio that puts him 20th among 103 corners. Not bad, but not great. Law's renegotiated contract still includes that $11 million option bonus, payable next March. The Jets aren't going to pay that kind of dough to a 32-year-old corner; they may approach him about restructuring again. They realize he's not the Law of old but they believe he has value as a second-tier player at a premium position. Maybe, if the Jets' season had gone better, Law's presence would be more appreciated. Now he's like the rest of them, just a guy playing out the string.

He was average at best last year, but the media still says he is the key to us going to the SB???

The Nfl allowed the Pats to cheat for years in the secondary. Amazing how good a Defense can look when your corners can hold every play or just ride them out of bounds.
