    Since we can all agree we will stomp the Jets week 1, what kind of gameplan do you think the Patriots will employ on offense and defense?

    I no we still have about 3 months 'till the game but its never a bad time to talk football...

    My game plan would be...

    1) Stop the run 1st. The Jets run game will probably be better than last year with the addition of Jones.
    2) Stop the dink and dunk passes. Pressure Chad and disrupt his bread and butter pass attack.
    3) Show different offensive fronts. The Jets were very good at predicting our plays and where they were going.
    4) Don't let the Jets hang around. Treat the 1st half like it was the end of the game. Run up a lead and break their moral.
    5) Spread the receivers out and prevent the Jets from blitzing Tom.
    6) Maroney run draws from pass formations.

    You usually win that way, says John Madden.

    i think you'll play vanilla and not tip your hand to the chargers before week 2

    probably still kill the jets in the process

    Looking at it on paper, you would say that the Patriots should win easily, but it seems like under Belichick we never play very well on opening day. We got stomped by the Bills in 2003 and we barely beat them last year. In 2005 we allowed over 300 yards of offense to the Raiders, and in 2004 we allowed 200 yards rushing to the Colts, who were a missed fied goal from tying it. There are many reasons for this trend, but if the Jets have a chance of beating the Patriots I think it is opening day.
