    Jets WR against press coverage

    For 2 weeks in a row, the opposition has successfully defended against the Jets by dialing up press coverage. What adjustments, if any, can the coaching staff, or the players, make?

    Watch the game winning pass to Holmes. He beat press coverage. It is a risk-reward strategy because if you do not slow the receiver down he is going to get behind you for an easy pitch and catch.

    Teams still do not respect the deep game for the jets. It will continue until they burn the opposition on a regular basis.

    get the RB's involved in the passing game

    have the WR's run different types of routes so that the DB's have a tough time anticipating the play and getting a good bump off the snap. Holmes ran some great routes yesterday, that's why he was open so often.

    Mark had MULTIPLE chances to hit the big one down the sidelines -- he just couldn't connect.

    If that's a problem all year, so be it. But that's also not the throw that's been emphasized since Braylon left.

    Hopefully we get our timing down better, because if we do teams won't be able to press the way they've been doing . . .

    If we had an accurate QB we can run some back shoulder throws to the outside, or run natural pick crossing routes

    To be fair, there multiple opportunities that the the offense drew up a play and beat the coverage, and Sanchez missed Hill and Schiens on those plays, both would have been TDs. Doesn't matter what adjustments are made if the QB doesn't execute the throw.

    i think it may be time to dial up some Cromarti on WR #3

    You're going to blame Sanchez for the route where Hill pulled up lame???

    On the throw to Hill, he pulled up lame when the ball was in the air. I think it was pretty obvious and then Hill confirmed that he pulled up after the double move. As for the Schillens throw, that was bad. He just misjudged that and I don't get why he rainbow'd it the way he did.

    You beat press coverage by using bunch formation. Three receivers bunched up forces CBs off the line and doesn't allow them to put a hand on the receivers. It is what the Steelers did when they went with mostly young receivers after they sent Holmes to us.

    I agree and I am surprised so many have missed that. Also, Sanchez did hit Holmes on the deep pass in OT.

    Same as last year. You can't teach speed, cutting ability and heart.
