Patriots/Jets Week 2 


Might as well get it started seeing as it's only 4 days away. I have tickets to this game but my work schedule changed and I now have to work on Friday. So my son and his friend are going. banghead

No way the Pats can afford to play as sloppy on Thursday.

Geno had a fumble and int early on but kept his composure. On the flipside he didn't overreact when things went well for him. I'm very impressed by his play as I never had any anxiety even when things went bad for him. Can't say the same for you know (goofy headband frown) who ...

The D played as I had hoped, stuffing the run and applying constant pressure to Freeman. When Coples comes back ...biggrinbiggrinbiggrin


Overall I see a very positive, never give up, collective mindset in the way the team is playing which will be needed with the rookie QB and new WC O implementation.

This game on Thursday will be the real test. I'm looking forward to it, and happy that it's only 4 days away...wink

I've said this before and I'll say it again.  I hate NFL football on Thursdays.  With the exception of Thanksgiving day, Thursday football doesn't belong in the NFL.  NFL football should only be played on Sunday and on Monday night.

I see your point, but there is a rawness about this that is not overlooked by those who schedule these matchups. Thankfully it's only once or twice a season.

I love it because as Rex said :" We'll find out a lot about this team in the next 7 days" It's great drama early on for a Thursday night!

Geno is going to be one of those highly inconsistent types this year i can see it.. Im going to put some serious cheese on you guys this thursday.. He got lucky someone roughed him up to pull the last game out but he didn't play terrible so there is hope for them..

As far as playing you guy i think this is a perfect game for you guys to get a "confidence boost to put it nicely" From a dolphins fan PLEASE MAKE IT LIKE THE THANKSGIVING GAME PART 2 lol I hate the jets and their smacktalking circus.

yeah Gonzo because there has just been so much smacktalk coming from the Jets this year.

Your forecast for Geno being inconsistent? Yeah, he's a rookie, no kidding

Geno got lucky, well that is one way of looking at it.  If that happened in the middle of the game you wouldn't even have cared or known about it.  Penalties happen and good teams take advantage.

Yup, the "smacktalk, circus" train left town long ago, though I know many will continue to hold onto that...noidea

On that note, I loved Rex's post game presser which showed his maturation as a HC in dealing with the media.

agreed, it seems he has really changed his strategy, or Idzik has?  Either way, i like it. And from all accounts he is the same Rex in the locker room with his guys.

Beat the Pats and Rexy's strategically placed, Idzik controlled shock collar will be set on high.

From a  CBS Sports article:

The Buccaneers came away impressed with the second-round draft pick.

“He stayed poised,” defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said. “I was sure when I was hitting him early on that he would get rattled. He kept hanging in. I said, ‘How many more times do I (have) to hit you?’”

“I’m never going to panic,” Smith said. “I’m never in panic mode. It’s a game. It’s something that I’ve been playing my entire life.”

I'm sure one thing BB will stress to the DB's is that they've got to come up with those INT's. There were I think 2 "almosts" yesterday. With a full game of film on Geno to work with, I think we see a coupe of picks by the Pats.

The entire offense needs to settle down.

My guess is that Geno throws 3 picks in this matchup

Mark really needs to get rid of that head band just like Tom needed a hair cut back in 07.

The media is on top of the Jets' back-and-forth Jets quarterback controversy.

To further brighten your day, I'm told Zach Sudfeld pulled a hamstring yesterday. Didn't play in 4th quarter. Hooman only healthy TE

Just read that....

Shane Vereen - RB - NE - Sep. 9 - 1:37 pm et

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports Shane Vereen is undergoing wrist surgery on Monday and will miss "a few weeks."
Vereen gutted out the injury against the Bills, but Monday's surgery will sideline him for what sounds like 2-3 games. Per Glazer, Vereen broke a "small bone" in the wrist on his first play of Sunday's win over Buffalo. He experienced "numbness" in the joint after the game because the cracked bone sits directly on a nerve. Look for Stevan Ridley to regain his feature back role and keep it for the remainder of the season. 

The time has come..... Here's to the 2014 Season.

I'm confident Ridley will respond just fine as the feature RB...but they sure could use Danny Woodhead.

How about this...

Don't expect to see Rob Gronkowski until Sept. 22 at the earliest, writes Mike Reiss

Hope he's wrong.

My only concern is that Ridley really isn't known for his hands. Vereen was making catches coming out of the backfield.

I'm not real concerned about Ridley's hands. In 386 touches he's fumbled 6 times. One of his fumbles yesterday happened because he slipped while trying to make a cut.

I'm talking receptions. Nobody could really get open yesterday and the check downs to Vereen got us down the field. I think he was targeted 10 times in the passing game. Ridley has like 9 catches in his career

Ridley will step up. So will Blount. Washington will cover for Vereen while he mends. Maybe they bring Winn back for a few weeks.

Losing Sudfeld is a bigger deal. That just leaves Hooman as a proper TE. Develin can fill in as a TE, but they're going to have to reshape the offense for a few weeks.

So we are either bringing back fells or Ballard  I am guessing. Ballard had a tryout with Baltimore today and left without a contract

Re: Patriots/Jets Week 2 


From CBSNewYork
The Jets only have a handful of days to prepare for the New England Patriots , but Muhammad Wilkerson says that’s enough, especially with head coach Rex Ryan back in the fold defensively. 

“I think with Rex more now in the defensive meetings and helping out, I think he’s going to put together a great defensive game plan.” 

We’re going to go to Foxboro and get this win,” he said. When asked where the Jets would be after Week 2, Wilkerson replied: “We’re going to be 2-0.”

We tried to "out-Bill" the Buffalo Bills...in their house!! Our starting RB gets benched for fumbling, our center botches a snap on Buffalo’s 1 yard line, our receivers stop and watch Brady when he rolls out of the pocket as if they're in the stands, etc. I don't care how hard we try, the Bills will find a way to lose down the stretch.

Their WR dropped a game clinching pass, even though the ball had the velocity of a father trying to teach his 3 year old how to catch. That’s how you lose.   

But ya, we can definitely lose to the Jets if we have the same performance in the turnover battle and our rookie wideouts keep running into each other or stopping all together after their done with their routes. The Jets have no pressure and if Geno can simply keep drives moving while killing the clock, they’ll certainly have a chance.  I can see Rex putting 7 in the box, hitting Amendola, stopping the run, keeping us honest with screens and making Brady throw to the outside to beat them. Normally this is the last thing that you do against Brady but our WR's were that bad and couldn't get any separation.  They were also horrible in anticipating where Brady was going to throw, which is a recipe for turnovers deep down field.  After some of those WR miscues, I really think that I saw Brady trying to count to 8 before reacting.  This isn’t the boring 2006 team where we had experienced receivers who just weren’t that good, occasionally dropping balls and requiring Brady to chip his way down the field.  These receivers are supposed to be bigger and talented outside compliments to Amendola, Edelman and Vareen and if they can’t succeed with this, they’re borderline useless.  Amendola had to make a few great catches in the middle of the field when he was covered for us to win the game (frankly, catches that I think Welker would have dropped).  Hopefully these are simply growing pains within a complex system.

 

If our WR’s need to get by until mid-season before they are on the same page with Brady, our DB’s will need to step up. The Jets only had 90 yards rushing and 47 were from Geno.  If the Pats have a defensive strength, it is stopping the run (see Foster and Ray Rice).  However, when teams have tried to catch up in the past and start throwing every play, they often wonder why they bothered running in the first place.  Hopefully our DB’s are catching up to our front 7.  I’ll be curious to see if we blitz Geno or if our DE’s play contain and we try to keep him in the pocket.  I kind of think that he’d be less comfortable having to drop back and throw vs. being rushed from the pocket and improvising with a clear view of the field.

Re: Patriots/Jets Week 2 


I think we as Patriots fan need to stop giving Brady a pass on everything. Brady hung on to the ball too long yesterday. He missed open receivers and made bad decisions. WR's did make make bad decisions as well, but a lot has to be put on Brady too.

The Pats have Zero TE's now that can catch a pass. Their offense is now very predictable and does not create mismatches like it has in the past. This game vs the Jets will be very very close.
