    Re: Run the jets down.

    We were both watching the same Patriots/Seahawks game last week, yes? It was pretty obvious to me, even down here in upside down Australia, that our running game was getting stuffed by Seattle early on. We weren't able to open up holes and neither Ridley nor Bolden is able to get more than a few through a wall of bodies. So, when that's not a good option for moving down the field, what else are you gonna do, Bunker/Rusty Griswold/Creepy Burger King dude/etc.

    Maybe you have a point about play action, though.


    Insert obligatory and expected put down/insult below(or above).

    Note, I have not insulted you, merely disagreed, but fire away anyhow, or... can you actually show some maturity and just answer back without the unnecessary insults? That would be refreshingly unexpected. I used to enjoy your posts, right up until you started biting everybody's head off and namecalling when they didn't agree with you.

    Cheers!

    SO, we run for 400 yards+ in Weeks 4 and 5 and then STOP doing it last week before it was proven to have stopped working?

    Hmm.   You seem to be contradicting yourself there a bit Babe. You LOVED Brady throwing 58 times last week with a 23-10 lead, 2 INTs, 2 groundings, 1/6 in the red zone, 3 dropped INTs, on the road in arguably the toughest place to play.

    That sounds like you're supporting a SALLY type offense. Sally.

    If you wan't finesse, go watch the Arena League or watch the NBA for your fix.  Girly stuff, Beatrice.

    Fruit cup or pudding tonight?

    No junior. I don't like Brady throwing 58 times. I voiced not a word of complaint about the balance in the weeks we were running more. Whatever works I'm for.

     

    But the run doesn't work all the time. Sad but true. And when it isn't, they pass more. Simple as that. Bottom line is, when the game is up for grabs, BB is going to lose with Brady rather than BJGE or Ridley. Any coach in their right mind would roll the exact same way.



    Babe...u do remember the last possession the pats had before Seattle scored to go up? Run, 1 yArd, run 1 yard, incomplete pass, punt

    I would argue the game was on the line during this possession, and BB opted to put into Ridleys hands 2 times for 2 yards. 

    Last week was full of curious play calling and brainfaRts. BB is not afraid to run over pass...I just can't understand why he did it during this possession....

    In response to Paul_K's comment:

    The Jets' passing statistics include games in which Revis Island was playing.  That's not going to happen next week.  Cromartie, who has been called the best corner in the league by one cornerback (you have of course guessed which one?), was playing really poorly against Indy last week. 

    CB Kyle Mini-Me Wilson keeps up reasonably well with receivers, but I'm going to single him out as being a poor run defender due to his relatively short arms.  He can't shake run blocks made by wide receivers.  Mini-Me should probably avoid covering Lloyd, Gronk or Hernandez because of his modest height and length, but I suspect that he can't cover Welker or Edelman either.  Wilson would probably cover Deion Branch reasonably well next week.

    Readers with long memories have noted how I mocked a number of Jets first round draft choices right from draft day, Mini-Me for example.  The Sanchize mocks himself with that name; how can I improve on that?  The jury is still out on Quinton Motivation Coples, although so far his need for motivation seems to be rounding out nicely.  The Jets have no pass rush -- that's Coples's job.  However, I never said anything poor about Muhammad Wilkerson, and he's turning out to be a good run stopper. 

    I suspect that the Jets have a reasonably good run defense.  If they have a glaring defensive deficiency, it's their utter lack of a pass rush copled with their utter lack of cornerbacks.  How can Josh McDaniels look at the video and not think pass?




    They are ranked 27th worst in the league. I guess if you compare their run D to 28th-32nd worst, they would have a reasonably good run defense.

    Re: Run the jets down.

    If we win the game and pass a lot Rusty will throw out that data point because "it was against a bad D" or because it was obvious that the run game set up the pass.

    If we win the game and run a lot Rusty will add that to his list of "data points" that proves we need to run more in every game.

    If we lose the game and pass a lot Rusty will bash Brady and make another "warnings were out" thread regardless of how the offense actually performs or what the game situation was.

    If we lose the game and run a lot Rusty will throw out that data point because we didn't have Brady under center enough or subbed out the RBs too much because Brady was trying to sabotage our run game.

    No matter what happens this Sunday Rusty's views on how NE should run the offense will be vindicated!

    He is just a lot a wind. Just the same way he bashed Seattle's D.  I'm trying to avoid his oints becuase he is just a negative know it all.

    Without Revis the jets can't keep their safeties up on the line all day. That should help both the run and short passing games.

    In response to sporter81's comment:

    Yes, they should be able to run all day on the Jets. Looking over the box scores from this season it shows that when they run they win, when they throw they lose. 

    The only thing that I can think of is that some teams won't let us run. The Patriots should work on perfecting their running game. Clearly they have the horses to run so why not if it means winning?




    how come u always post right after queenie and always agree/back up his point?

    hmmmm...



    You mean rusty? Dude if you think I'm rusty your not very smart. Who cares when I post anyways? What does it matter? At least I'm a patriots fan on a patriots site.
