The next play we’re going to dissect is the LaRon Landry interception…
Cardinals Michael Floyd is going to run a post. Donnie Fletcher is lined up man-to-man with Floyd. The Jets outside linebacker (to the left) is going to drop into coverage.
Everybody is else coming. You’ve got to love the call.
LaRon Landry is responsible for the deep middle 1/3 of the field. He starts off favoring his left, notices Floyd’s post across the middle, and makes a run at the ball.
Landry shows great range as a free safety. He’s been criticized for having poor cover skills, but he makes a great play here.
Landry is able to under-cut Floyd and Fletcher. It seems like a tough squeeze but Landry is so quick and is able to attack the football at the perfect timing.
Landry sacrificed his body on this play, running full speed with a potential 3-player collision.
Durability was also a concern for Landry this year… but hey, there’s 4 games left and he’s yet to miss a game. If I’m working for the Jets front office, I’m negotiating with Landry’s agent as we speak.
That’s just me.
It’s really impressive seeing Landry flying between two players at full speed. It’s starting to look like Landry is the “ideal” safety in Rex Ryan’s defensive system.
What a pick!
If the defense can keep this level of play up, we can expect a blowout in Jacksonville… but we’ll have to see how Mark bounces back first.
That’s going to be all from The Jet Press, Inside the Jets vs. Jaguars Film Room: Defense.
