So far I'm not impressed with this new offense that supposed to be able to run the ball more effectively.

Looks a lot like the one we had last year.

Runs get stuffed in the backfield and then Ben has to run for his life then 3rd and long.

While you are worried about the offense, Mark Sanchez took his team 90 yards like they werent even there. Steelers defense is toast. Ike Taylor's career ended in Denver in January and Keenan Lewis couldnt cover me and I ran a 4.8 40 in my prime, and my prime ended 10 years ago.

AndyWitmyer
09-16-2012, 03:44 PM
Overall - this is a team in transition. And it's going to look like this for a little while. Tomlin would of course say there are no excuses - but there are. Still - our team is already banged up.

The defense is worrying me even more than the offense.

While you're right about the defense looking like some shit, that's not the side of the ball that the coordinator was fired to help improve on an offense that has been to the Super Bowl.....Twice.

Now, should we get another coordinator for the other side of the ball?

what is wrong with Polamalu this week?

AndyWitmyer
09-16-2012, 03:51 PM
As far as the run game, patience with the run may end up paying off. Ordinarily, I would say "Don't worry so much - slow and steady wins the race!" and ordinarily, that would likely be the case. But for that to work, you need an effective D. I haven't seen that so far this season. It's still early - but we'll see.

As last week's game proved - dominating the time of possession (usually a good indicator of which team will win) means jack shit if your D is letting the other team score in less than two minutes.

AndyWitmyer
09-16-2012, 03:51 PM
what is wrong with Polamalu this week?

I was wondering about that, too. That's not usually a good sign...

fortmemphis
09-16-2012, 03:52 PM
it takes like 10 secs for our running plays to develop. Ben runs for more yards running the ball to where the handoff will take place than the RB gains after the handoff.

Ah here we go. The Steelers, king of the FG. Defense gives up TDs but offense gets FGs.

AndyWitmyer
09-16-2012, 03:53 PM
If this first quarter is any indication, we might end up having a shoot out with the new offense needing to prove itself to carry a poor D. If this is the case, I can tell you one thing - 3 points are fine - they win games - but we're not going to beat the Jets on field goals alone.

Doesn't help that he takes 7 small steps to hand it off, rather than 3 big ones. I've been a QB for three years and even I know that.

I'm still a little jacked about the Holme's flag - the fact that it HE (specifically) called for it and won it, in spite of the penalty being sketchy at best - made it worse. Oh well - can't get caught up in stuff like that. But, unfortunately in a close game (assuming this will be), the refs may be the difference.

While our offense isn't looking terribly great, they're not what would describe as bad - they're playing about as I would have expected, considering all of the changes this season.

But the D is as flat as it gets. It feels like the NFL has just figured us out, completely. Ike is just one of many issues here. At least we held them to 3.

We're not going to be able to win games without a full team effort. I don't know if we're going to see that this game - but we'll see. It's still early.

They're freakin' terrible. Stupid penalties, Can't cover. Can't stop run. LB's might as well not even be playing (they're invisible). Can't force fumbles. Can't intercept passes. Horrendous.
People were making fun of media analysts for thinking we could go 6-10, but at this rate...we'll be LUCKY if we do that good.

AndyWitmyer
09-16-2012, 04:16 PM
I guess the Offense is going to have to win the day - every game from here on out. Ben will not have the luxury of an elite Defense to back him up as he and his unit are in the midst of transition. That's a lot to ask - but if he is the elite B that he is, then I'm confident that he'll step up to that challenge and carry the team on offensive leadership alone - for as long as it takes. So far, we're 1 and 4 on third downs.

But, folks - I don't know about this Defense. You can say Troy's out, or this or that - but something is definitely very wrong here. Maybe some "adjustments" will help - we did hold them to 3 last drive - but that's not going to be good enough all game.

TRH
09-16-2012, 04:19 PM
the situation on D is ugly no matter how you look at it. Harrison looks like he may actually be finished. Troy, for all intents and purposes, is just about done as well. He'll never be the same at this point. Kiesel is not the same Kiesel he once was. The DB's are scary bad. Worilds looks as if he'll never live up to the huge potential he had. Timmons, once the big contract got signed, has barely been a "minimum wage" LB out there. Will Hood or Heyward step up? At this juncture, the jury's still out.

The entire unit plays with almost zero passion. And the draft is a long way away and even then, those young guys will take time to produce.
Meanwhile, Hightower, who was #1 on our list if not for DeCastro falling so far, is absolutely tearing it up over there in NE for a rookie.
Just bad no matter how you slice it.

Is it sad that anytime another team's offense is on the field, I expect them to score at least three? I hope the stop on this drive was the end of that jinx.

Thoughts Going Into the Second Half...

If we win this game courtesy of the D, it will be a miracle. This is going to likely end up being the shootout that I was hoping it wouldn't be. Our Offense is looking much better than it would appear. 3rd down conversions are an issue - but, otherwise, we're up 3 going into the second half with a balanced offense that will keep the Jets D honest - and it helps that Ben is looking VERY efficient. Also kudos to Squeez-um.

AndyWitmyer
09-16-2012, 04:48 PM
Stats alone won't win the game, but for what it's worth, in terms of comparing QBs:

Big Ben: 13-16, 148 yds
1 TD

Sanchez: 4-10, 80 yds
1 TD

TRH
09-16-2012, 04:48 PM
my thoughts: The offense and Ben both look subdued and careful...almost a second or two behind. But i believe thats just coming from getting used to the new offense and making sure they're running Haley's plays correctly. They're somewhat efficient. Need some bigger plays. We need a bigger running game, Dwyers trying...but we need a healthy Redman in there running like he did at the end of last season.

The defense? What puzzles me is how the Jets don't have 27 points right now instead of 10. LeBeau and Tomlin need to reach into those guys heart and souls and demand some "passionate" play out there on that field. Right now they look almost like dead bodies playing football. Also have to try and create turnovers. At this point, we're not even trying to strip fumbles or INT passes.

Patience with the rush may pay off. It's looking anemic now, but that last scoring drive made the statement that O needed to make. Now if the D would step up, we can stop this from being a shootout (in this case, a type of game that I would not be very confident about)

Defense playing like crap first half. Offense is driving but not finishing. Looks like things are picking up towards the end though which is great. I'm not really passing judgement on this offense till after week 6-7. The defense is letting me down though a bit. Nice play call on the TD pass to my guy.

AndyWitmyer
09-16-2012, 04:54 PM
This D has all the classic looks of a line that is demoralized before they even step onto the field. I feel like the years of being the "number one defense" has gotten into their heads a bit - and maybe, if they're not living up to that hype, they really are the slow and old D that the media is keen on painting them as being.

They don't need to be the number one defense. They just just need to play with heart - we can win big games with a D ranked 10. We just need some heart.

AndyWitmyer
09-16-2012, 04:55 PM
Ben has thrown to 8 different receivers two games in a row. The passing game seems very interesting and varied - of course, part of that is an anemic rush game.

Yep. Even Tomlin's got to admit that the defense is not playing "to the standard". If we lose, and they play with fire, heart, and soul, thats one thing. Its completely acceptable. This is not.

This is why the run game - even if it's sucking - will pay off if it keeps the Jets offense honest. If Wallace's TD is deleted, then that's a huge setback, no doubt about it - but it shows what this Offense can do. Ben's good at stepping up to this kind of adversity.

Ben's heating up with the pass. Even if it sounds insane, the balanced offensive strategy is allowing for Ben the chance to pass honestly. Now if the rush can pick up and maintain the time of possession as we head into the autumn of the game, we should definitely be able to pull this off.
