Re: Jet's defensive strategy that has worked?

Jam the hell out of any deep threat
This of course requires excellent DBs that can go one on one, which the Jets have had.
The way to beat it, of course is to give Brady time and win the match up of whomever the LB is covering. With 2nd year Gronk and AH I imagine we win that match up hands down.
They like to flood the middle of the field and make Brady throw outside the numbers.
Last year they were able to blanket welker and branch. Gronk didn't have a very good game and neither did crumpler. Hernandez was limited to a few snaps because of the hip injury he had. Now we have a healthy Hernandez and Ocho, which will make it more difficult for them to cover.
