1. Can the Jets stop the Oregon Offense?
Much has been made about the new offense Bill Belicheck has installed in New England this year. It has led to the Patriots having by far the most offensive attempts in 2012 and has helped them keep defenses on their toes.
At the same time, this is a team that is an uncharacteristic 3-3. Is this offense wearing down in games because of this technique? Is this hurting Tom Brady, who had two intentional grounding penalties last week against the Seahawks?
Jets will be without some key players on defense like starting DT Sione Po’uha, backup DT Kendrick Ellis, and SS Eric Smith. Those losses could be painful when substituting is such an important factor in this game.
In consecutive weeks, the Jets have lost their two biggest playmakers: Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes.
While the NFL has proven that you can rally from a star player becoming injured, a second star going down on such a flawed team leads most to believe that this will not be happening for the Jets.
If we can all agree that the Jets will not be winning the Super Bowl this year, the best course of action for the Jets is to lose out and get as best of a draft pick as possible in the 2013 draft (hopefully with someone other than Tannenbaum making that pick). With that said, if the Jets are going to win more games this year, here are some Tebow-less ways they will have to adjust to make it possible.
