Other teams have had to throw the ball cause they dont have a JETS defense and the Pasts had scored so many points by half time that all those poor teams could do was throw the ball a ton in the 2nd half....and still lose!
schitty has shown a distinct inability to design game plans against the teams the jets face. the patsies can't defend the pass so schitty calls run plays. and vice versa.
now i am totally on board with a ground and pound attack and to be sure, the early games this season were hampered because mangold was out. but that doesn't mean the jets have to run the ball only that they need to set up the runs with play action and screens. these are plays that schitty hasn't used for most of the past 5 seasons and are only now coming into use.
the jets have the personnel to cut through this patsie defense ike a knife through butter. it's frustration to see them get hampered each game day by the little schit.
If the Jets don't go all out and attack that sad sack weak as Shi* secondary early and often they are retraded. The Pats will score, we are not shutting them right down. The only time we should be running the ball with any regularity is if we are up by 17 in the 4th quarter. They have the worst secondary in the league, we'll be playing right into their hands if we try and grind it out.
[QUOTE=OCCH;4228035]We showed the rest of the league how to beat the Pats OFFENSE. It's not the defense's fault we had 7 three-and-outs (out of 11 possessions) and were constantly on the field.
If we show an even remotely competent offense (like we have the past two games) I'm confident the defense will do what's necessary to ensure a W . . .[/QUOTE]
I agree. I just find it ironic that, according to some, we gave the league the blueprint on how to beat the Patriots then we came out and allowed them to put up 446 yards of total offense and 30 points.
