    I'm sure most of us are still taking the game very seriously, I just hope no one is expecting an easy win for the Pats.

    The Jets offense was absolutely terrible but our defense is not on par with that of the Ravens. Let's not assume we will also be able to hold them to 6 first downs. They should be able to move the ball a bit better. The key will be doing what the Ravens did, hold them to FGs.

    The Jets D looked fantastic, even after Jenkins went down. It will be a real test for our offense. We'll need great pass protection and great play from our WRs. If they have a chance to make a play, they need to make it. Our RBs will need to pick up some tough yards from time to time. We're not going to average 5 yards per carry but if we need a yard, they need to get it.

    I doubt we see 15 penalties from the Jets again so we need to play sound football in all three phases. We can't count on free yards.

    It's going to be a really tough test. The Jets know that starting 0-2 with 2 conference and home losses will put them in hole, not to mention start a firestorm from the media and fans. I hope the Pats can get out to a quick start and stay in control of the game. That will go a long way in getting the win.

    The Jets D didn't look that brilliant to me, the Ravens play calling was terrible and Flacco made some poor decisions and a couple of overthrown passes which would have resulted in big gains or even TD's.

    Saying that I don't expect the Jets to be as ill disciplined on Sunday, but I suspect they will leave the middle of the field open for the likes of Welker, Edelman and the TE's to pick up medium gains all day long.

    Really it doesn't matter who is taking the Jets lightly as long as it's not the players or coaches.

    Unlike what folks saw on Hard Knocks this summer, BB, his staff and the players conduct themselves like adults with the overall goal each week to improve and win. There's nothing to suggest anyone who matters is taking the Jets lightly.

    On the contrary, I expect a week of laser like focus in practice and meetings and a highly competitive effort on Sunday win or lose.

    Just for the record. I am looking past the Jets and the Colts. And gonna jump all the way to looking past the Dolphins for a second time.

    So anyone want to speculate what team will be coming to Foxboro the week of Jan 15-16th for New England's first playoff game?

    BB always has a little extra motivation when the Jets hit the schedule. Maybe even a bit more now that Toothy the Whale has arrived as HC.

    We fans can look past the Jets all we want, who cares? All that matters is that the team doesn't, and considering how much the Jets have been talking for the entire offseason, I'm sure they won't. The Pats are going to bring their A+ game for this one on principle alone.

    What impressed me the most about the Jets was that run defense. The Ravens could get no movement even when the Jets were playing small ball with their personnel. We need to get a good push from our line because we need the threat of the run for our playaction. Brady is deadly at times with that.

    Not sure if "looking past" is the phrase you want. NO ONE is looking past this game. It has been marked on NE fans' calendars since the schedule came out. No game is more important.

    Maybe, after MNF's 10-9 washout, underestimating New York's offense might be a problem. But you can't overlook the Jets. (Literally: their head coach is HUGE!) :eek: ;)

    Yep. And I think it's fair to say that when the schedule came out, no Patriots player, coach or even fan looked straight to week three and started zeroing in on the Bills game. ;)

    The Pats will send them to 0-2. I really don't doubt it after watching their week 1 offensive performance. Their receivers can't catch the ball and sanchez can't deliver. Their defense will be a bit of a pain to deal with sure, but I don't think it will be able to contain Moss/Welker and our new tight ends for long. We're going to pick on their weak link just like the Ravens did - Kyle Wilson, welcome to the NFL! ^_^

    Their defense looked good against the run, but Flacco was able to move the ball through the air almost at will. ESPECIALLY on third downs. They really could have won this game by two touchdowns if they hadn't shot themselves in the foot with boneheaded mistakes in Jets territory. I don't think Brady is that generous this weekend. I'm not expecting a 30 point blowout, but I'm not expecting a one point win either. I think we can move the ball through the air on their other corners and get some production out of the short passing game with our TE's.

    On defense, I think we can scheme up something to slow down their running game and get into Sanchez's head. The only concern I have are outside runs. I saw our DE's get sealed with relative ease against the Bengals on runs up the B-Gap and to the outside. Hopefully our DE's and OLB's are ready to step up.

    I guess a better title would have been "Let's not assume we'll easily beat the Jets."

    I didn't even think about what the title is actually saying until people mentioned the Bills. Sorry.

    No need to worry. I think that BB has that one covered.

    You know, that's sometimes a byproduct of having a lousy passing offense, too. And for the most part last night, the Ravens had that.

    i just hope they stick to what they want to do on offense. i remember last season when the pats went to the meadowlands they pulled that stunt with play cards from the sideline and it clearly showed that the jets talk that week had gotten into the heads and they changed things up to something which they normally dont do.
    LT concerns me the most. he has had some good games vs the pats in the past when our Dline was much stronger .he will be the biggest challenge.

    That's the beauty of having a coach like Belichick, he doesn't allow his teams to look past the next game. Even the Jets helped make sure tha Pats don't look past them with them shooting their mouth off.

    Will be interestin to see how Jets play Pats. Their run D looked great because they had 8 in the box all day and challenged Palmer to beat them, which he did on most occasions. I think this game is the exact reason why we upgraded our TE position. I can see out TE's playing a huge role in this game.

    I'm more concerned about our run D. I hope they stack the box and force Sanchize to try to complete a pass. He may occasionally stumble into a completion but I can't imagine him beating them repeatedly. IF THE JETS CAN'T RUN, THE JETS CAN'T WIN.
