    In Response to Re: Jets Safeties:
    Wilson was benched at one point and if Lowery is a go, Wilson probably won't start. We'll see. I think you are overanalyzing the CBs who will match up against McCourty and Arrington. Obviously, assuming Holmes lines up on the weak side against Arrington, that's a clear advantage on paper. But, I think McCourty controls Edwards. Is Cotchery healthy? I have heard very little. He sounds like he wants to play, but I can't see a groin tear being healed to the point he'll be a factor in this game. In the end, it's hard to know what BB will do in terms of playing man or zone against the Jets. McCourty is plenty physical and Arrington can be physical himself.

    Physicality doesn't always win the game. A wideout like Holmes is known for sidestepping the bump. Edwards is a very good #2 receiver and can handle physical play. I don't see him owning any real advantage over any of the NE corners and visa-versa. If a Jet receiver is going to have a big game, it will be Holmes. Keller must also have a big game - if he disappears as he did for a couple of weeks during the mid-season, that will also spell trouble for the Jets.

    I mentioned earlier that when it comes to kids, confidence plays a big role. The Jets need to hit the kids early to get them out of their comfort zone.

    I don't know where Cotchery stands right now, but I have no problem with Smith as the 3rd wideout. I will not be shocked if they actually let Smith throw out of the Seminole package this week. Although I have a feeling that BB just maybe looking for this as well.

    Again, I think what you'll see is the front 7 try to create pressure like they did against Pitt a couple weeks back. BB will probably play zone and see how it works to keep the big play capability in front of them. Obviously, the pass rush creates problems if it's created effectively. Rapelisturd struggled when NE schemed in that game.  NY's O Line is better than Pitt's, so this may not be as effective as an option. Should be interesting.  I expect to see a lot of Smith as well because I don't think Rex has confidence in Sanchez matching Brady in this environment.

    BB - here I disagree. I think Rex has plenty of confidence in the kid. Smith will get about 4 snaps from behind center. the question willbe whether he throws or not. I do agree that pressure will be a key; on both sides. I think the teams match-up well with each other, each having strengths and weaknesses which we have discussed all week. You made a good point about the Jet D in the red zone. They haven't done a good job executing back there. And although the Pats have come up with big turnovers, they are giving up way too many yards in the course of the game. Time possesion drives by the Jets will be big because it keeps Brady off the field.

    I believe the point spread on the game is about right and should be a good game. The Jets have talked the talk - now it is time to walk the walk for a 2nd time this year. We'll see on Monday. But I do know that they respect BB and the Pats big time and will not go in over confident.

    Re: Jets Safeties

    Again - they might, but if the Jets play as they are capable, they should be able to negate some of the Pats strengths. I don't agree with you 100% about game 2 because if you are correct, then BB cannot be in the discussion for greatest head coach. BB does not cater to divas and he certainly wouldn't sell off a win to a divisional opponent just to try and market a player he wants to trade. But I am not going to belabor that point - we agree to disagree here.

    As for Brady - just like BB, he is part of the greatest of all-time conversation. But even the greatest can be bested by excellent teams. The question is, do the Jets want to be that excellent team? I think we find out more about the Jets than we do about the Pats on Monday. Whether that is good or bad, I don't know.

    In Response to Re: Jets Safeties : Dude, it was Week 2.  All NFL teams are still tinkering and trying to see what works and what doesn't. Go look up BB's record after Thanksgivng and in the postseason. Thanks.

    Dude - I am not some little kid. And I certainly don't appreciate you trying to talk down to me when you have no answer. If I have already acknowledged BB's place in football history, then what point are you trying to make. You have put the gm 2 loss on the Pats continued usage of Moss that game. I think you even mentioned once that this was BB's way of showcasing him for a future trade. And this in turn led to a loss to a divisional rival. Now why would BB do that? That is certainly not the actions of a great head coach; only a vindictive one which I don't believe BB to be. The points you have made in previous threads about game 2 and the use of Moss does not strengthen your argument now.

    In Response to Re: Jets Safeties : Yeah, and NE defense is so poor, especially on third down that it just stays on the field.  So what you have is a great offense that can score quickly that then leaves it's already bad defense to get scored upon regularly - although apparently more often from outside the 20.  Given NE poor TOP, it would seem that teams are having long drives from the 20 to the 20 and then busting it into the endzone on the next play.  Good thing that 20 something ranked D is so good in the red zone.   I tried to find some stats for points & W-L records coming off a bye week against the tope defense in the NFL.  Seems that you are just as likely to lose that game as playing on a short week.  What a shocker.  Apparently, great D's win games. You should write that one down.  It will be usefull for you, next Monday. Only a fool like you would think that it is better to score less points, yet have a higher redzone % and give up more points and have a lower redzone %.  You are a complete idiot. And yes, last years patsies team was better.  A top 10 offense and defense is better than a number one offense and a suckass defense.  Look no further than point differential.  When you are so one sided, you limit the ways you can win.  When your offense gets shut down, you're dead (see Browns and Jets games).

    Here's some stats for you.  Acu-score, which has been very accurate, has the Pats winning @ 68% (that leaves 32% for you).  It also has the Pats gaining 5 RYPC and the Jets @ 3.5.  It's amazing how something unbiased and uses stats correctly can reveal the truth.
