    Bizarre, Brad Smith breakout vs.Pats

    The Patriots will attempt to shutdown Cotchery, Keller and Stuckey with various combination coverages. The Patriots 3rd and fourth CB's are Wheatley and Whilhite both 5'9 corners, I understand Brad Smith has done absolutley nothing, but the Jets in a 3 WR set, with the 6'2 Smith going up against a 5'9 corner, it's a matchup I would take all day. Can you imagine what it would mean to this offense if either Smith or the Clown had a breakout day against the Patriots ?

    i would never EVER put all my chips on brad smith. ugh, never.

    my prediction: they will attempt to shutdown keller... and be very unsuccessful. keller for a huge game. 9 catches 132 yards. 2 tds.

    You guys are giving the Patriots way too much credit.

    They don't have the personnel to shut down Cotchery, Stuckey & Keller.

    They may be able to blanket one of them but the other two will have opportunities to make plays.

    Keller torched the Pats secondary/LBers last meeting and the Pats secondary/Lber's were better then.

    I can't see little Bill letting Keller torch him again,IMHO he will double Cotch and Keller, and have Bodden (his best corner ) on Stuckey. Leon in this scenario is your best option.

    ?? Ok so you put a corner and a safety each on Cotch and Keller and Bodden is covering Stuckey so you're saying NE will have their nickel D out there for our base offensive package......Never mind a running back coming out of the backfield, what do they do with a 3 or 4 receiver set ? We'd run for about 300-400 yards on that defense......

    I know you guys have taken the Kool Aid this week, but this goes beyond the pale, ARod. You better stop the nonstop drinking of those umbrella cocktails on your boat. DID YOU WATCH the Monday night game. The Pats secondary shut down TWO WRs who are BETTER than Stuckey and Cotchery.
    And to say that the secondary was much better LAST year is ludicrous. It is MUCH better THIS year.

    I can only guess at what the Pats defensive priorities are (running game, Leon, and Keller would be my top 3), but whatever they are they will do a decent job at it.

    The fact is the most interesting aspect of this game will be if the Pats can stop the Jets running attack, and if the Jets can get to Brady. The team that succeeds at their prime objective will probably win

    Pains me to admit it, but I gotta go with Patfan on his take... Our best threats are going to be underneath to Leon and Keller really trying to get Leon into space. Our outside WRs will get their chance to make plays and will have catches, but I doubt they will be the focal point. I would love to see a bomb to Clowney, perhaps as a flea-flicker.

    Our running game and run blocking is really going to be key. Our week 1rushing stats were hyperinflated by running downhill in the fourth quarter with 2 long runs. The first 3 quarters, rushing was not that good, I believe there was a time where T Jones had 13 carries for 15 yards.

    Hence, mix up Jones with increasingly more Leon quarters 1-3, and let Jones run over people in the fourth. Unlike games against the Pats in the past, this one is VERY winnable.

    They will attempt to shut down Sanchez. Cutting off the head kills the body. Look for lots of blitz's. If he does not freak out like a typically rookie and can get one or 2 off before getting hit. We win

    I disagree.

    The Pats will focus on shutting down the running game and short passing game ie: Keller/Washington.

    They will force a rookie QB to beat them with far less talent at WR than they shut down last week.

    Sanchez will probably end up with some pretty decent numbers...but will most likely throw a pick or two which will cost him the game....

    It won't be pretty...but the Pats walk out of this one winning by at least a field goal.

    It'll be a moral victory for the die-hard kool aid drinkers here who will see it as they ALMOST beat the Pats....and will continue to beat their chests about how the Jets will give us an ass whipping next time...

    The Pats are 13-4 in games that Richard Seymour didn't play, including 8 wins in 2007. Don't get me wrong, not having Seymour hurts, but the defense as a WHOLE will survive as they have done over the years when Seymour was unable to play.

    I can dig it. Smith always shows up against the Pats for a play or two.
