If the Jets do not consistently stretch the field, and get the Bills safeties off the LOS the Jets offense will fail.
And for everyone saying "don't turn the ball over", that is nonsensical. You cannot have a QB playing in fear of turning the ball over, he has to be encouraged to make plays, and if he throws an INT get it back the next series.
Trying to not throw picks is like the average golfer saying "just don't hit it in the water" which pretty much guarantees he will.
Why do you feel the bills are going to put a safety in the box? I agree that Wilson will be in the box with Tebow is taking the snap , but I think the Bills play it straight. Unless Rex goes 2TE or a two back set.
Shon Greene is a nice back, but not somebody you take a guy out of coverage to defend
If Sanchez can manage to do these 3 things, The Jets will win. Your thoughts?
1. Dying to see the "uptempo O" we've been hearing about since camp.
I'm all for the no-huddle whenever we're behind or if the Bills get a rhythm going. Good way for the Jets to take control.
2. Keep a body in the backfield. I really don't like to see an empty backfield with the shotgun cos it dictates a pass (unless Mark runs it himself).
3. Catch INTs and recover fumbles. They're free gifts - take them. Nothing worse than dropping a sure pick or letting the ball squirt around for the other team to get. Play heads-up fundamental football on every snap.
I think the "don't turn the ball over" meme is overrated.
Romo threw an INT on Wednesday night, but no one cares because he threw 3 TDs.
It's about scoring TDs, whether he throws it, runs it in, or a RB runs it in. TD scoring drives. If Sanchez leads the offense on TD drives to turnover ratio of at least 2:1, the Jets should be fine. In other words, for every turnover, Sanchez should be leading the offense on at least 2 TD drives.
I totally agree. You want to see aggressive playmaking but with minimal mistakes made.
