While I'm not one to shy away from a nice panic attack from time to time, I think the overreaction to last nite's [victory] is just that, an absurd overreaction. So here is the thread to do just that. Frankly, and maybe I'm crazy, but after last nite, I'm more convinced that this team is still the team to beat, and has a legitimate shot at 14-2 -> 16-0 season. Hear me out. All the talk about the offense being rusty is laughable. The team moved the ball at will against an underrated defense with a good D-Line, decent linebackers & secondary. They simply failed to execute in the key places until the final two drives, something which is easily correctable. 441 yards, 28 first downs...If the offense moves the ball the way it did last nite, they can expect to put up nearly 40 points a game. The defense played better than I expected them to after seeing preseason. The secondary was far, far better than it was last season. Evans and Owens combined for FIVE CATCHES. The damage came underneath, and hopefully, that can be attributed largely to the absence of Mayo and the effect that had on putting Guyton in the middle and then Ninkovich as the OLB. I'll say it here first - we're going to destroy the Jets this Sunday. Our corners have a much easier task, and will need much less help over the top, allowing the deficiency in the middle of the field and in the flats to be covered up, and also allowing a more aggressive pass rush. On offense, it will look much like the MNF game last season when Cassel chewed up the Jets underneath. The Jets had one of the worst pass defenses in the league last year, and they're going to have to give up the underneath stuff, thereby rendering the aggressiveness of the pass rush useless. If they try to take away the underneath stuff, their corners are going to get beat over the top.
