    We should start Tebow, hope he tears it up and then trade him for Kuechly.

    Wow, I just had extreme deja vu.

    Film review: Breaking down Big Mac: The story of the game, of course, was QB Greg McElroy, so let's take an... http://es.pn/Yw8XDp #nyj


    The story of the game, of course, was QB Greg McElroy, so let's take an in-depth look at how he was able to succeed in his NFL debut.

    Offensive coordinator Tony Sparano did a nice job of calling high-percentage plays that maximized McElroy's ballhandling ability while also exploiting the aggressiveness of the Cardinals' defensive front. A few trends developed:

    1. Misdirection: The Jets burned the Cards with clever misdirection runs. It allowed them to create holes against eight-man fronts. With McElroy at QB, they ran five misdirection plays for 34 yards, including 17- and 10-yard gains by Bilal Powell. If fact, they were the exact same play. It was '22' personnel (2 RBs/2 TEs/1 WR) in the I-formation.

    On both plays, RG Brandon Moore pulled to the right and delivered a kick-out block. The run-action flowed to the left, but FB Lex Hilliard and Powell swerved to the right, with Hilliard delivering a lead block on LB Paris Lenon -- both times.

    2. Moving pocket: McElroy isn't known as a mobile quarterback, but they ran three bootlegs -- two runs for seven yards and a one-yard TD pass to TE Jeff Cumberland. Why put McElroy on the move? Two reasons: Obviously, it made it harder for the Cards' pass rush to track him down. Also, it made it easier for McElroy to read the defense. It cut the field in half, reducing the number of reads -- the right call with such an inexperienced quarterback.

    3. Safe passes: McElroy threw only one pass more than 20 yards -- his first attempt, an overthrow to WR Stephen Hill. The rest of his throws were underneath stuff. Naturally, the best pass was a game-clinching, third-down strike to WR Jeremy Kerley on the final drive. CB Patrick Peterson, already one of the best in the business, had man-to-man coverage. But McElroy threw a well-timed, back-shoulder fade for 13 yards. Kerley made a sensational, one-handed catch. McElroy completed five of seven for 29 yards.

    4. Lots of tight ends: Sparano didn't expose McElroy to many open formations. In fact, they used 2+ tight ends on 22 of 27 plays (not counting two kneel-downs at the end of the game), occasionally using Cumberland and Konrad Reuland in the backfield. Backup OT Jason Smith also was heavily involved as a jumbo TE. Rex Ryan commended Smith for playing one of his best games as a Jet. You'll see a lot of these heavy packages if they decide to stick with McElroy.

    In four possessions, the McElroy-led offense produced 150 total yards on 29 plays -- a 5.2 average. In 45 plays with Mark Sanchez, the offense generated 139 yards -- a 3.1 average. The question is whether McElroy can sustain it over four quarters. Obviously, the next opponent -- the Jaguars -- will be prepared for him.

    LaRon Landry has a clause in his contract that prohibits the #Jets from using the the Franchise or Transition tag on him after this season. #nyj

    Jets 2013 RT?

    Andrew Brandt ‏@adbrandt
    Another move to Injured Reserve - Dolphins' Jake Long, top pick in '08 Draft. Completes 5-year contract on IR list. Free agent-to-be.

    Unlikely. $15.3M. RT @JoshElkin Do you think Miami will franchise Long? How much would that cost?
