Jets (3-4) defense throttles Rivers


When I watched the Jets Chargers game yesterday the thing that jumped out at me was how much the Jets defense looked like our defenses of old.  Ryan is using the 3-4 like Parcells used to, making the opposing quarterback rush his throws and make bad decisions.  The pass happy trend in the league these days rips most secondaries apart if there is no pressure.  Anyone who watched that game yesterday saw a classic application of bringing heat from everywhere to negate multiple wide-out sets.  It's also the best way to defend against empty backfields, and is almost guaranteed to break down blocking assignments, often at key times of the game.

 

So you say, "But we don't have the people to play the 3-4."  Well we had better damn well find some or we can look forward to more disappoining. defensive performances.  It's not a matter of not fixing what is not broken.  It is broken and the sooner we face up to that the sooner we can start taking charge of games again.
