Offensive Consistency & Urgency Are Keys For New York Jets
Added by Marvin Turner on August 2, 2011.
If the 2011 New York Jets are to make a run at the Super Bowl in 2011, there are two main areas that will have to be addressed during training camp. The first area would be to place more emphasis on completing drives. The Jets are good at moving the ball up/down the field, but for some reason do not show the consistency once they get in the opponents side of the field.
The Jets become tentative in terms of the play calling; displaying a (we don’t want to make a mistake) kind of play, inside the 40 yard line. It shows in almost all of their games, which does not allow Sanchez and crew to be more aggressive and attack the end zone. If Sanchez and the Jets are to get better; going into the 3rd year with Sanchez as the starter, the coaching staff has to show more trust in allowing Sanchez and crew to be more aggressive inside the opponents 40, which could amount to more consistent scoring drives, and would then give the defense more rest, and the ability for Rex to be more fluid in his play calling, and more precise in his attack.
Rex Ryan is the best in the game at calling defenses (if you ask me). But again, the Jets offense will need to show more urgency when the ball is in Sanchez’s hands. This offensive team has to get out of this mold where they go 3 and out, punt the ball 6-7 times a game giving opponents chance after chance to stay in the game, putting more pressure on the defense to have to make a key stop in the 4th quarter.
Jet fans will be looking for this offense to focus on consistency and urgency during training camp, pre-season games, and into the regular season. Most Jet fans know: If the Jets offense can open up, establish a 7 to 10 point lead in any given game, Rex Ryan can then go to work and do what he does best, create havoc, force the ball out of the QB’s hands, allowing his play makers in the secondary to make big plays on the ball.
