I would much rather start Browning Nagle than Geno Smith. These are certainties. He is unable to learn. His "Athleticism" is either over rated or overshadowed by his inability to keep cool. He could start NOWHERE in the NFL.
In my opinion, the Patriots will use short and extremely quick passes, play action passes and runs on the edges. They will also often go no huddle to tire the defense and play action passes from there. I am not sure how you defend against short timing routes, conversely, I think that the Jets coaching staff is game planning for just that. I sincerely believe that this game is a measuring stick for this Jets team but anything short of a win is a huge loss. Just a thought.
In my honest opinion, the only shot we have to beat the Patriots is to hit Brady often, to hit him hard and to make him uncomfortable from the start. Brady is only beatable when startled. The offense has to go on long and time taking drives. It is much easier said than done, but it is the only way...However, a long shot
And some hopeless defenders say Geno did not have "enough time (ie More seasons to simply throw away) and Fitz has only had 10 quarters total with the starters. Bottom line is, would you start Geno in 2 weeks?
