Those teams all had pass rushes, where we had to send the house and leave our db's 1-on-1. Besides that's not considering the fact we play man on most downs, where other teams like Houston and Pittsburgh prefer zone. You switch our db's with any other teams, they wouldn't handle what we put Revis, Cro, and Wilson through.
OK, I can agree with that, especially your point about the Texans and Steelers playing primarily zone defense in the secondary.
His three year weighted average of increased failures is second best in the NFL (behind Revis). His impact on opposing WRs receptions is 5th best in the NFL over the past 3 years. His impact on opposing receivers' expected yards is 12th best in the NFL (those numbers are particularly impressive given how much more he is targeted with Revis on the other side). His impact on opposing passing games overall (as opposed to merely diverting a target from the receiver he is covering), in both receptions and yards, is second in the NFL (to Revis).
Last year the Jets had no WR to pull the safeties over and open seams in the middle of the field.
If Hill is capable of becoming a legitimate deep threat, the safeties will provide help which should open up the middle of the field for Kerley and Keller.
Much easier to gain a little bit of separation if the safeties aren't clogging up the middle.
Not as simple as you make it sound but on the right track... Hill has to establish himself as a receiver... If all you can do is stretch the defense, they play man under defense and take away short routes as well as provide help over the top. This is the NFL if you are one dimensional as a player, teams can take you away from being productive...
Holmes definately had problems with double teams, but he also had problems getting seperation when he was singled.
One thing that becomes very apparent is that the Jets never had free running recievers last year. If you watched Eli he threw like 10 tds last year to a wide open reciever, the Jets WR never seem to be able to beat anyone that badly.
Alot of that has to be attributed to scheme. Running 4 routes all ending in the same place is not a good way to get a WR running free. It can also be attributed to poor QB play, by either getting the ball out too late or too early. Hopefully what we've heard of Mark throwing to a spot and trusting his guys will be there proves true and along with a more vertical passing game we'll see more productive passing.
