So how does a team respond from not scoring any TD's during the preseason? -they put up 50 points in their home opener.
There were wildcats.. reverses.. flea-flickers.. everything and anything missing from 7 years of Schottenheimer. And My God did it feel great! Sanchez was the star-of-the-game.. but give the Tebow thing time. He will pay off for the Jets this season, they just didn't need him to today.
This was (in alot of ways
) a tough game for the Jets, in the sense it was; Lose-Lose. If the Jets lost, the media would've been relentless. And yet, despite the big win.. it'll be overlooked because it's "only the Bills." The Jets have a big opportunity next week if they beat the Steelers.. not just in terms of beating a better team, but looking ahead after that, against Miami. If we can upset Pittsburgh, it's very possible the Jets could roll into Week 4 with a 3-0 record. Next week is the game to focus on.
Greene did not run the ball well or effectively power through or shed tacklers. Plus his fumbling issues reared their ugly head again.
..and yet, he had nearly 100 yrds and a TD.
You gotta remember bro, the main part of the ground & pound isn't Y.P.C. as much as it's punishing the other team. People won't give credit to Greene for today's game because they'll say; "well yeah he had 100 yrds, but it was on 30 carries." But do you know how hard that is on a back? Maybe I'm drinking the kool-aid here, but I think Shonn Greene is the PERFECT back for our offense. If you have a RB strong enough to run the rock nearly 30x, and can get you 100 yrds and at least 1 TD.. that kicks the sh!t out of another teams d'line.
Someone might want to tell the Jets there's still time left in this game now
I hold this D to high standards bro, but c'mon.. this game ended at 41-7.
In situations where you're up but that many points, you go into prevent defense.. to sacrifice the 20 yrd passes at the expense of running the clock, by defending the run with straight nickle and dime. Don't judge this defense by what you saw in the 4th. (because those plays were layups
) This game was as close to perfect as it gets for the Jets.
