The Jets are a Hard Team to Handicap

The obvious part of this is the offense. Despite the fact we haven’t seen it yet, a significant portion of the Jets playbook is hiding from the world. Tim Tebow’s packages have not been seen, and we don’t know how effectively that the Jets are running them. Instead, all we have seen of Tim Tebow has been playing traditional quarterback. His work has been solely in the QB role, backing up Mark Sanchez. They have had Tim work on traditional packages, and not his option/Wildcat plays.

The play of the first team offense obviously gives us all reasons to be concerned. However, it’s difficult to understand how effectively these guys are going to be, with an entire set of plays being hidden. In other years, you have a more definite picture, but this year you don’t.

Even the defense has held plays back. The defense has been great, not allowing an offensive touchdown with the first team. They have also gotten a great deal of pressure with their front seven. We all know that this is an improvement from as year, and a great sign. But, we really haven’t seen all of the different types of blitz packages that Rex Ryan and the Jets are going to use. We haven’t seen all of what the defense is going to do either.

It just makes it more difficult to handicap this team.

Not that we aren’t going to try. We all absolutely will. It’s just harder this year, harder than most years.
