Reiss: breakdown of the Jets rush & the results
Mike does it again with a terrific quantitative breakdown of how many men the Jets rushed and how the Pats fared against each strategy. (See article for all the numbers -- 9/11 )
Here's his "FINAL ANALYSIS: In all, the Jets blitzed 16 of 29 times. When the Jets brought two or three extra rushers, that's when the Patriots made them pay, as New England completed all nine passes against six- and seven-man rushes. It is interesting to note that when the Jets brought seven rushers, Randy Moss was on the receiving end of all four passes, which could be a tendency opponents will key upon. Meanwhile, when the Jets played conservative and rushed just three, Tom Brady had plenty of time in the pocket and was patient in making plays. If not for the Wes Welker drop against a three-man rush, the Patriots would have been perfect against that as well."
