    Who has to come up big?

    1- Jets Oline!
    For Sanchez to have any success vs easily one of the worst secondaries in the league, this Oline needs to protect Mark & let him gain some confidence that with time he can slice up these Patriot backups.
    * You only need to go back to the Sunday night game last year. The Pats had like 9 sacks with Carter getting like 5!
    In addition, DBrick & Mangold need to have their best games of the year, Chandler Jones has been good but is this the 1st time he goes up against someone with arms as long as his?
    Dbrick should be able to nullify this guy, if he can't then the Jets again took the wrong 1st round pick seeing as DBrick is being paid to be our FRANCHISE left tackle.
    Mangold needs to keep Wilfork at bay & for some reason I think Ducasse & his beef might be a better play than Slauson in this game. The Pats don't have a FAST Dline like the 49ers/Texans or Giants.

    2- Our run defenders! Sucks that Pouha is not healthy but luckily the Pats don't have a "star" center so Devito should be able to hold his own. Big Wilk needs to have the game of his life because if we allow Ridley to go off, we have NO CHANCE! If Ridley runs play action to the TEs will kill us!

    3- Without the top 2 things it won't matter what Sanchez does because we all know that he can't carry this team on his back but this is an important game of his career. This is the Pats, the team that has been kicking our azz for 12 years. This is our division nemesis. Last year, every single QB that faced the Pats had huge passing days, except Mark Sanchez, TWICE!
    Even after losing Holmes, he has more speed & more versatile WRs than he had last year.
    With the Hills, Kerley, Schillens, Keller & Cumberland.
    Weird thing is that Cumberland could be HUGE on Sunday if he learns how to catch a ball cleanly on the 1st try.
    Belichick ALWAYS takes away one thing & without Holmes it will be Keller.
    I can definitely see a 2 TE set where Cumberland sneaks out into this secondary & there is no way that Jerod Mayo can keep up with him.
    The other important WR will be Hill. His speed alone will have to be respected so Kerley should see some green.
    Bottom line with Hill is that he will get open...will he catch it?, if he does he will be like a man amongst boys out there. The Pats secondary without Chung & Gregory is SMALL!
    There is no way that McCourty can stay will Hill.

    So, bottom line is the 3 skill guys that have to come up big, I have faith in one, Kerley. Hill & Cumberland are a crapshoot but if they can manage to hold onto the ball, the opportunity for these two guys to have YAC & big plays will be the difference in the game.
    If Jets can change field position than the running game will get better as the game wears on as long as we don't get 2 scores behind.

    EVERYONE.

    Not just the Jets but the Officials NOT calling PI's on Cro when he plays GOOD SOLID DEFENSE or call 'holding' on Jets linemen after a good run by Greene(though he'd probably still get only 2 yards if they held every single player).

    D-line/front 7.

    Without pressure on Brady and keeping the run in check, Brady will eat us alive.

    Coples and Wilkerson. They need to apply pressure on 1st and 2nd downs.

    Need to win the trench warfare on both sides. Speedy wide receivers don't matter if Mark has 2 sec to throw the ball. Give Brady enough time and this will be a blowout by the first half.
    Based on what I saw the last 2 games, I think the OL will be OK, but the DL needs to be a step faster.

    That's right, the one thing that can give almost any team, unless their O is superior, a chance against a great Qb is to hammer them and get them flustered. Unfortunately I don't think we are there yet.

    Like every game with every team:

    1) the OL & DL
    2) no turnovers
    3) Limit penalties

    D-Line has to get pressure.

    Sanchez has to complete 60% of his passes and play better.

    Jets need to play a clean game & get a big play from the special teams. Sucks that McKnight is hurt because Pats fans have been saying that with all the injuries in their secondary they have played poorly on specials.
    Another Kerley punt return for a TD would be huge, unfortunately the Pats punt an average of 2-3 times a game.
    A couple good, clean bury his shoulders into the ground hits on Brady wouldn't hurt either.

    +1

    They were drafted specifically to beat the Patriots. It sucks relying on rookies but Coples is going to have to have the kind of impact the Shaun Ellis had in the playoff game 2 years ago. I theorize that Rex held Coples back for the first quarter of the season to have him getting lots of playing time for the remainder of the season. He got the most snaps he's seen so far last week and that will continue against the Pats.

    the jets need to play even in the first half. don't let the patsies get any cheap points (you know just before the half). put brady on his back. control gronkowski and fernandez. welker was concussed last game and really shouldn't be playing. cromartie can't give up cheap penalties and wilson had better turn to look for the ball if he wants to barrel into receivers. line pla, line play, line play. give sanchez protection. put tebow and sanchez in at the same time. protect the ball.

    Robert Malone .... Gotta make sure that we keep the field as long as possible for Brady

    Front 7, specifically Coples. If he can generate pressure up the middle and force Tammy off her perch in the pocket, the Jets have a shot.

    On offense, of course Sanchez... but also Greene. He needs to have almost as good a game as he did last week. He did a good job of creating yards on his own (for the 1st time this year) and that will again be key to moving he chains and keeping Brady off the field.

    Sanchez needs to take advantage of the lousy secondary players and score on a couple deep balls. Send Hill deep and hope he can come down with it in 1-on-1 situations.

    We are playing against the Pats and we're playing at Foxboro. Guess on which side they will be...
