Cotchery goes a few rounds with himself

Jerricho Cotchery had a few sparring sessions over these last couple of days -- with the man in the mirror.

The normally sure-handed wideout dropped three passes in the Jets' 9-0 loss to the Packers on Sunday and he's been sick to his stomach ever since. 

"I always beat myself up, you know?" Cotchery said. "That’s how I overcome things and how I prepare for the next time around. That helps me work harder in practice and things I need to fix. So, I beat myself up in the proper manner." 

But can he erase a game like that, which had to be one of his worst in his seven seasons with the Jets, from his memory banks?

"It’s a fine line," said Cotchery, who was targeted by QB Mark Sanchez a team-high 13 times Sunday. "You have to look at it and see what you did wrong on film. It’s just technique issues and those things are easy to fix. So you go back and you prepare and you make sure those things come back again."
