The Dirty Sanchez era begins today @ 1pm est. The Jets head to Houston to take on a Texans team that is the sexy pick to take the next step in the AFC South. Regardless, this is a winnable matchup and comes down to coaching.
The Texans will look to spread the Jets out and use their speed to disect this defense. With the loss of Calvin Pace and Shawn Ellis for this week, the Jets are certainly vulnerable. Gang Green will have to blitz early and often to force Matt Shaub into quick decisions. Not a problem for Rex.
For the Jets to move the ball they will have to show that Sanchez can get it done. The Texans will most certainly have everyone at the line of scrimmage, so it will be up to Sanchez to loosen ‘em up.
With that said, Sanchez has to be careful in this game. The defenses in the regular season are not the vanilla sets he saw in the preseason. He has to take care of the ball and lean on the running game and defense. This one looks like it will come down to turnovers.
With the Patriots, Titans & Saints on deck, this game is critical as crazy as that sounds. The Jets need this win this game to gain some confidence going forward. If they can win the turnover battle, they’ll be in good shape.
The season has begun!!! Finally!!! The void in our weekends is over!!! My honey-do list is on hold!!! Beer & BBQ… J-E-T-S… JETS!!! JETS!!! JETS!!!
