This next play we’re going to focus on is a Reggie Bush run out of the gun. Reggie’s going to take the handoff to his right (our left), as his left guard pulls.
In this next still-shot, you’ll notice that Muhammad Wilkerson gets a lot of attention. The Dolphins send a double team his way, using the center and guard to get Wilkerson off the line of scrimmage.
It’s easier to see the double team in the picture below, but notice David Harris in blue. He’s going to read this run beautifully. Eventually, he will go around the double team and force Bush to stop dead in his tracks.
Harris is able to make contact with Bush (not easy), AND make the strip. This is a great play by our inside linebacker. Yeremiah Bell (blue arrow below) is going to see the forced fumble in progress. With great awareness, he rushes to the area.
Yeremiah Bell notices the loose ball when nobody else does. Bell makes a play for the ball and gives the Jets a much needed turnover.
Unfortunately (again), the Jets fail to capitalize on Offense. Only scoring 9 points against Miami, the Jets have a lot of work to do on offense.
Until then, the Defense will have a lot of pressure on them. They will be forced to make plays similar to this one, just to stay in the contest…. and that’s only IF the Special Teams unit can avoid giving the ball away THREE times.
At 3-5, the Jets have a lot of work to do during the bye week. For now, we can only hope for a turnaround.
That’s going to be all for this week’s defensive film session.
