    Breaking form: Jets' different looks

    Finally got a chance to break down the Jets-Dolphins tape. One thing that jumped out at me - and I noticed this during the game - was how the Jets had used a lot of two-back formations.A year ago, they were a one-back, one-tight end, three-receiver offense. This season, they want to get more physical and close down the formation with more beef. Thatís why you saw a lot of FB Tony Richardson in the backfield with RB Thomas Jones. Obviously, the numbers will vary week to week, depending on the opponent, but I think youíll see more of a two-back approach throughout the season.

    Hereís a breakdown of the offensive groupings against Miami:

    2 RBs/1 TE/2 WRs: 29 out of 55 snaps (53%)
    1 RB/1 TE/3 WRs: 16 out of 55 (29%)
    1 RB/2 TEs/2 WRs: 8 out of 55 (15%)
    2 RBs/2 TEs/1 WR: 2 out of 55 (4%)

    So, for 57% of the snaps we had 2 running backs on the formation, interesting.

    I wonder if we can do something like that against a team better than MIA.

    Maybe it was a way to offer more protection?

    Tony Richardson is a pro bowler, why wouldn't you want him on the field?

    2 TE's only 19% of the time. I'm a little surprised.
