LET MR. SMITH GO DOWN THE FIELD: Typically, this hasn’t been a problem for Marty Mornhinweg and company, but it did come up last week. The Jets had a very conservative game plan, and it hurt them against the Steelers. They made and effort to stay short with the passing game, and it was not the same as it had been in previous weeks.
To allow Geno Smith to make a mark, he has to do what he is good at. One thing that Geno is good at doing, just naturally, is throwing the deep ball. He has been as accurate as anyone in the league. You have to let him do that. The Patriots are 13th in the league against the pass, they can be beaten. Give your quarterback a chance.
MAKE A PLAY ON SPECIAL TEAMS: How many times does a game come down to special teams? When the Jets aren’t getting blown out by New England, all it takes is a play here and a play there. We have taken games over based on our special teams play, just never against this team.
Help out your rookie quarterback. Change the game with a blocked punt, long return…something. Make a play to make a difference.
What are your keys to victory?
