    With Revis out and Marshall getting so much attention everyone will be paying attention to the outside edge, but who will be watching the middle of the field?

    When I first saw the over/under at 35.5 I thought it was very high, but now I think that it is very low. I think we'll score 20 points + ourselves. Especially if we use Marshall as decoy here and there and hit Bess and Fasano long while Marshall is double covered.

    If TS plays this right he should be able to give the Jets fits all night long. I'll take a LB on Bess all night long all the way up and down the field.

    We'll see, keep in mind we are in Ground Sparano territory now.

    Like Ground Chuck Knox.

    You know they're gonna load up against the run and put the game in Henne's hands.

    Besides watching the football being snapped to Henne, I usually look at how our O-line is doing. If Jake Long is pushing back their DE's and putting JT on his butt early it will be a good day for Miami. Henne just has to learn to get rid of it quicker at times, but I think we should be able to handle the Jet's pass rush. If we don't turn it over we should win it by a score of 20-10.

    Padre..You mean the Chuck Knox who one 4 superbowl's and completely created an identity for a city and a team by pounding the football and physically beating the sh%4 out of the opponent..yes iam familiar with him, and I would like to pattern our game around it..but add the element of the wildcat alway's.

    Old school football with bigger, stronger, faster players, Its been my motto, and iam stickin to it....

    Both of our RB's put the ball on the ground last week and we won the football game. Doubt we see that again this season.
    Henne has zero interceptions.
    Penalties are down.

    Jake against JT :lol:

    Yeah no turnovers....I was getting pissed when Ricky and Ronnie coughed up the ball in the 4th quarter last week. :angry: I can't wait to see Jake Long hammering JT and seeing JT go dancing to the sidelines grabbing his elbow. :lol:

    Well obviously Rex Ryan has not made much of an effort to watch his middle but Sparano has done a good job of it.:wink2:

    Should have know, you would recall "Ground Chuck"!!!!

    That is pretty much what Sparano is doing in Miami, it is not sexy, it does win games..especially when married to a Opportunistic Defense.:up:

    I disagree...Ground Sparano applies to games that we're winning to burn the clock. The objective against the Jets is never to win...it's to embarrass. We're going deep all night long.

    I hope they do. Let them "stack the box" and commit every available warm body to it. That's what a good play action QB is for. Fake the run in the box and throw where the safety isn't for a TD.

    Rex Ryan is many things but bright isn't one of them. He has the range of a Daisy Air Rifle. We will be expecting him to stack the box. Remember, whenever they commit more people to the run, there are less people in coverage. That's why we got Brandon Marshall :up:

    Every time the Jets stacked the box I'd run a tackle eligible, a draw play, a zone flood, or hit a WR on a shallow post route. Since their LB's can't be in two places at one time I'd play a vicious little shell game with them and I know TS will be ready to do the same. I see no way possible the Jets win this game.

    Chuck Knox never won a superbowl in his life or in his dreams. Here is his coaching record.

    http://www.pro-football-reference.com/coaches/KnoxCh0.htm

    You are confusing Chuck Knox with Pittsburgh Steelers legendary coach Chuck Noll. Who, infact - was an assistant coach to none-other than Don Shula when Don was the head coach of the Baltimore Colts.

    It's common mistake, don't sweat it dude.

    scary enough as it sounds, we need to flip things around and pass to set up the run more often than not.

    This team has now become so talented that we could adjust to any game plan to win almost any game. Shula's teams were like that but back in those days a coach had a player for ten years so he had more time to break a player in.
