Jets Offense vs Dolphins Defense
Jets QB Situation
The Jets sticking with Geno Smith hoping the rookie can get his confidence back.He may be on a short hook and might see Matt Simms, if Smith struggles.The offense strategic plan has been planned around lack of weapons at wide receivers.A lot wildcat and high school trickery using Geno Smith as wide receiver.
Smith highlights have vanished and defenses are stacking the box.They blitz him and he not making the proper adjustments to offset the blitz’s.The Jets need to throw more on first downs and get better protection so he burn the defense while in a run defense.This will also give him a shorter third down yardage.
The Jets offense line has to step up and keep their quarterback clean.Improve pass protection and run blocking.They will have improve the blocking technique and win the battle in the trenches.
The Jets must to throw the ball to win to open up the running attack.The Dolphins, who are just 26th in the league stopping run.Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory could take advantage of this,if Smith ability to pass succeeds.
Dolphins Offense vs Jets Defense
The Jets defense needs deliver a great deal of pressure on Dolphins QB RyanTannehill.The Jets secondary are nick up and the defense line needs overcome that.The Dolphins offense line missing 2 starters and struggle in the ability to block.The scenarios is make it awkward for Tannehill.
Tannehill can connect the long balls to deep threat Mike Wallace. The Dolphins will be aggressive passing the ball to Cromartie side of the field.They will work the injured hip and could burn the Jets with Wallace.
The Jets scheme can’t be man to man.Rex Ryan will have to doctor up secondary with some zone.They might want to try a cover two.This would mean Ryan would have to be transparent cause cover two not his style.The cover two is a bent but don’t break style.It keeps the middle of the field open.This might be needed based off the Jets defensive skill set.
