With powell as the RB and mcknight as the slot, we could easily start to use play fakes, misdirection, etc to get these guys the balls in space and see if it can open other things up. At this point, with sanchez's limitation and the lack of any downfield threat at all, we need to be getting innovative on offense and simply arent doing it at all.
I have been calling for the Jets to develop their screen game all season. Powell and McKnight could be very effective in that role. I am just amazed that Sparano has not tried to use this. A good screen game also slows down a pass rush and may give the opportunity to take a few shots down field.
