Jets vs. Giants - what do you want to see tomorrow?
While it was great to get football back last week, the game itself left a lot to be desired from a fan perspective. Hard to be excited about much more than what we saw from Coples in his debut.
Since we'll have the starters on the field for at least 20-25 minutes, what do you hope to see in this Saturday's game? My initial thought was some crispness in the passing game, but with the injuries at WR I can wait another week for that. For me, it's:
Power running. I'd like to see the Jets actually pick up a few first downs just by running the ball on first and second down. I don't need the 20-yard runs, I'd just like to see a handful of 6/7-yard gains.
Powell / McKnight - hopefully one of these guys has a big game and starts to pull away as the leader in the race for 3rd-down back.
Safety play - everything points to Landry and Bell being upgrades over Smith and Leonhard. Wouldn't mind seeing one of those guys validate that opinion this weekend.
Davis - The sooner Davis is getting some serious snaps on defense the sooner this defense gets a much-needed injection of speed. Will be watching him closely.
I just want to see our offense score... is it too much to ask to hope for 20+ points? Lets see some scoring please... if its over 20 points i guarantee at least one of those touchdowns is special teams/defense.
