Seriously, can someone tell me? I don’t subscribe to BSJ. Other than Jackson getting targeted by the refs, seemed like a pretty perfect performance.

Not sure. Haven’t read it, but my guess would be sealing the edge on runs. A couple of time bell outflanked them by faking up the guy then taking it out wider. Not jet sweep wide, but outflanking the ends wide. Maybe that’s it?

Bedard's Breakdown: There's finally something for Belichick to harp on the defense about, and it's perfect timing | Boston Sports Journal
The issue in this game, at times, was gap discipline. I dinged the Patriots for leaking in their gap integrity/setting the edge on nine plays. Those nine carries resulted in 66 yards, or 80.5 percent of the Jets’ rushing yardage (three missed tackles didn’t help either). For this group, that’s a bundle. I didn’t have them for more than three as a team in any one previous game.

Runs are right at the end of the 1st quarter and start of 2nd quarter.

Essentially he says that playing the bad teams has allowed the run discipline to slip a bit, particularly around gap coverage. He says the upcoming teams have very good running games compared to what the team has faced. But unlike the norm, he's optimistic (to the point of near certainty) that the team will just take care of it because of who they are playing.

What is Bedard selling, insurance?

And isn't he considered one of the best backs in the league? He supposed to be able to do something.

Point of the article was just to say it’s not a big deal, easily correctable albeit forgettable mistakes that Belichick will harp on and that’s what makes him great. It wasn’t a “run game is in trouble!) article that some of you probably assume.
