    On Offense:

    1. Given the JETs formidable front 7 plus Ryan blitzing everyone but the kicker, the Pats OL has to come to play. Any semblance of the non-performance that awfull February 2008 where everyone on the OL acted as if stunts and the blitz were something new will lose the game and possible the Franchise. :eek:

    2. Quick passing game. Starts with the QB who has certainly done his homework assuming he ever wishes to see his family outside the hospital monday, Brady must be prepared to identify the best quick release options when the house blitzes. The OC and Tom need to keep it simple for the outlet boys because tenths of seconds count. WR screen checkoffs and young TEs programmed with basic saftey valve options. The std screen to the RB is often negated because the JETs blitzers often assign one JET to target the RB.

    3. Slot has been the JET killer and I think it will be again. Assuming Revis healthy enough to cover Moss, the Pats have too much talent in Welker and Edelman and possibly Hernandez to cover the slant and middle field options. I want to see Moss drag defenders away with him again Sunday opening up big plays for the Pats quick move receivers.

    4. Gronk in the Red Zone. Put it high & let him get it.

    5. Running Game...only if the JETs approach the game in an unorthodox (for them) manner and don't stack the line should we "try to establish a ground game".

    6. Finally, Tommy Boy needs to utilize ALL his weapons. No more fixating on Moss & Welker like he tended to do a while ago since unlike then, now he has other quality options. Speaking of Moss, I really don't want to see BS like Tom trying to force plays to Randy so he can have bragging rights vs Revis. Never again. Only if it's there.

    STs:
    1. JETs have quality here. Gotta cover well. But the Pats have new talent here. Assuming they kick to him, I look for Tate to roll. Edelman as PR should also be good for field position. Retire Welker here..

    2. The player wearing Gostkowski's uniform last week needs to be caught and sat down. Time for the quality guy to get over one less than stellar week. Hopefully if he kicks at all it'll be from lots closer this Sunday.

    D:

    1. Time for the young DL wide bodies to man up and play Run D. Bruschi said the Run D was mostly a mentality. We'll calibrate this young D's mentality Sunday.

    2. I look for more instances of our supposed ILBs playing OLB as the situation fits. BB needs to continue to find ways to keep the best talent on the field.

    3. McCourty needs to show that last week wasn't an abberation. Love the way he LOOKS BACK when the ball is in the air. Butler needs to settle down and just play a solid game.

    4. Continued excellent safety play is key. Gotta cover Keller assuming a LB hasn't drawn 1st responsibility there and continue to hit hard but most of all, take the correct angle to not give up the big play. A broken assignment TD by the Jets really keeps their anemic O in the game.

    5. Finally, the 2010 bunch needs to learn how to play in the 2nd half of games. You're possibly distracted from initial success or you get tired beyond imagining but WTF? the other guy is still comming. Again a certain mental and physical toughness is needed here, something sorely missing in recent years.

    I think the mental end of the OL preformance is most critical. The Jets get pressure by getting rushers through unblocked, not by consistently dominating one on one battles.

    There will be plays where Brady needs to hit the hot receiver because they will send more blitzers than we have blockers, but that is only a small part of the game.
    Picking up the blitz and exposing those DBs to have to cover for a long time is where we will slice and dice them.

    I think Moss is going to be a weapon, not just a decoy. In fact, he may be more of a weapon against this type of D than any other. Brady will see Moss all day in his progressions. If Moss is open he will get the ball.
    Popular belief is that Revis covered him 1 on 1 all day last year, and thats not what the film shows. If they give Revis over the top help, it opens up the other receivers, if they have read the press clippings and really try to put Revis one on one all day long on Moss, there will be a lot of plays for
    Randy. You can count on that.

    Against everyone!!!!!!
    I think we can run if we spread the field. I dont think we will line it up and use the run to set up the pass against anyone.


    I dont think Brady has changed his approach at all over the years. His favorite receiver is still whoever is open. There are games when Moss barely gets throws to him because of what the D does. What has changed is that he has a 1st and 2nd option that often get open.
    If Moss is the first option and Welker is the 2nd on a given play, no one else will see the ball if these guys are open. Its al about the progressions. (Why Moss never sees the ball vs ceratin coverages too)
    If you are saying our play calling should isolate other players as the 1st and 2nd options more often, I may agree. But Brady isn't choosing where to throw the ball on very many plays, his order of progressions, the coverage, and whether they are open does it for him.

    As a detailed observer of all things QB, Brady clearly went thru a phase where he did fixate on Moss & Welker to excess. There were extenuating circumstances, limited TE options and guys like Aiken at 3rd WR. The classic Brady who found the open man disappeared for a while. Hopefully, he's back given the plethora of options.

    Guyton on the field at OLB IS for passing situations, as he has been used, q.v. Palmer pick 6.

    Agreed that Moss will be used as a weapon not JUST as a decoy. Just don't want to se Brady force the ball to Moss to support his buddy vs Revis.

    The Jets offense is horrible this year. They will be lucky to win 6 games and have no chance against the Pats. Our offense was looking like the 2007 days again in that first game. :eek:

    On offense lots of three TE sets. Run out of it enough to keep em honest. But use it enough to set up max protection and take a couple of deep shots down the field.

    On defense, line up old Vince in the 'A' gap and let him force the issue upfield on a very suspect NFL starting Left Guard. Set a hard edge, the Jets had minimal success running between the tackles. Everthing they got in the run game was allowed to bounce outside.
