    it really is amazing. It looks like all 5 Patriots valid receivers have at least a few options on every single play, compared to some teams which simply play straight up. If this was the offense from the beginning, no wonder it took Brady a few years to truly get it and work it as well as he is doing now.

    the one thing i disagree with is the last sentence, which seems to imply Randy Moss was all athlete and had little football intelligence, which could not be more wrong.

    I understood it to say Randy was one of the rare players that had great athleticism and got the play book and in the future they wont just plug a great athletic reciever into the system and expect it to work.

    I read somewhere that the Jets are going to implement this type of offense, supposedly to make it easier for Sanchez to find open recievers...hahahahaha

    The ball is supposed to be at a spot that the reciever should be at before he even makes his cuts.....that ought to help out Sanchez' INT numbers :eek:

    Going to be interesting to see how much of a help running option routes are for the Jet's passing game.

    Sounds like hilarity. It's Brady's mastery of the system that makes it work. The difficulty for each individual receiver is overrated compared with what Brady needs to process on each play, I believe. Wrong read, wrong route, hilarity ensues.

    Sanchez has problems finding his second reciever running just basic routes, let alone if he has to actually read a D and figure out where his primary receiver is going to be.


    This season may have to be a ground and pound year for the Jets ! ;)

    From the reports, it seems as if the Jets are looking to implement a modified version of what Miami was running when it had Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown in the backfield, with Tebow there to run his option plays rather than Brown running the Wildcat. The Jets are going to be relying upon the speed of their receiving corps, and the ability of Sanchez to make the right read pre-snap.

    It's a disaster in the making if Hill and Schilens can't step into the lineup right away, but it could be an offense that really stresses a defense if both of those guys are ready to go.

    I think that having Tebow running the option will be stopped by the defense that plays the run and dares him to throw. :eek:
