I didn't realize the Jets only ran to the right twice. If true, that's crazy.

 

Can you imagine if they ran to the right AND used Ruckert on the right ? Might have won the game. Hackett outsmarted himself ... not an incredible feat ... but it happened.

I get that nothing worked and they move Parsons around, but Parsons is the type of guy that you run at and not away from.  When you run away from him he just runs the play down.  Running at him should, theoretically, let them put some big bodies on him to wear him down. I assume that was the theory.  Not sure why it wasn't adjusted.  I would have expected a heavy dose of run behind Mekhi every week.

Unpopular take; it’s week 2.  The Jets went on the road to face 1 of 2 teams in the NFC that will be in the Super Bowl.  They were over powered by the best defensive player in the NFL.  This was a bad matchup.  The Jets are not the first team and wont be the last team to get destroyed by the Cowboys.  They are the only team in the NFL going on the road trying to win with the worst QB in the NFL.  Luckily just like most of the NFL the Jets are still figuring it out a bit and by far are facing the most adversity in the league already while doing so.  The Jets are not as bad as they looked vs the Cowboys.  They in fact, will stand to get better from this display because they won’t face another pass rush anywhere near that for the rest of the season.  It’s 1 game.  The Jets are 1-1.  Lots of Football left to get better and put together better performances. 

Weeks 1 and 2 are warm ups.  Now the real season starts. 

It's fair to note this game was a pretty tough assignment even if the Jets' offensive gameplan adopted every one of the author's recommendations. Cowboys have no problem moving Parsons around, and the rest of their defensive front aren't slouches. If you run 2 TE sets, yes, you can probably run the ball more effectively, but only to a point when the defense adjusts. And that means  it's will be facing defenses with 9 in the box, LBs and safeties  cheating in gaps, and daring Wilson to pass. Which is where this team ends up no matter what with a limited QB that the CS doesn't trust.

Scenario: you are going to Dallas to play one of the most fearsome pass rushes in football and against a generational EDGE player operating at the height of his powers. Your QB is a mentally deficient and cowardly young man who has historically poor statistics under pressure, but who also holds the ball longer than any other QB in the sport. 
 

Questions:

1. Why didn’t you sign Tony Boselli in the offseason? 
 

2. Why didn’t you just assign multiple blocking fullbacks to follow Micah Parsons around the line of scrimmage because he rushes from every position on the defensive front, with his first sack coming through the A gap on a twist?

Hard to explain a lot of this. I wish our beat reporters would put Saleh/Hacketts feet to the fire on it but they won't. They'll focus more on asking how they feels abouts things.

Cimini asked about leaving Parsons one on one and Saleh answered some fluff and said "it's hard" because Parsons moves around. 

Doesn't give me much confidence in the CS going forward.

Tom were you able to get Wilson's average from Sunday ? Or his yards after escaping from a collapsed pocket ?

What you said is all true but that game plan was still ass any way you slice it.

This should be the Jets base personnel package:
Start Ruckert at TE. Start Bawden at FB. Start Tippmann at C. Have McGovern and LT compete for LG snaps. Split Wilson Wide left. Split Lazard wide right. And run the mother ******* ball behind AVT and Becton. The D will have to bring extra defenders in the box to the right side to stop it. Then you can play action from that formation and hit Wilson on option routes - slants and outs - maybe an out and up every now and again. 

Hard to play action with an Oline that doesn't exist .. unless you think a two TE set will help.

NY Jets OL coach put in extra hours for a disastrous game plan

The NY Jets knew that they had their work cut out for them in a difficult Week 2 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. With Aaron Rodgers out, the Jets were relying on third-year quarterback Zach Wilson to lead their offense.

They were aware of the challenges they would face and put up in some extra work last week to properly prepare for a tough Cowboys defense. They simplified the playbook and spent many additional hours devising a game plan that would allow the Jets to find success on offense.

The result of all that extra effort was what we saw on Sunday — a disappointing, abysmal showing in which the Jets' offense looked woefully unprepared for everything the Cowboys threw at them. The Zach Wilson excuse doesn't fly, either.

The Athletic's Dianna Russini reported before the game that Jets offensive line coach Keith Carter had "logged extra hours [last] week getting the offensive line group ready for a game plan to not only protect Wilson but also help ignite an expected strong ground game."

Needless to say, Carter's game plan failed. And it's worth questioning what his game plan was in the first place.

The NY Jets offensive game plan failed on Sunday
The Jets knew that they were going up against one of the best pass rushes in the NFL, led by superstar Micah Parsons. The Cowboys even had Parsons prepare for the Jets by double and triple-teaming him in practice.

The expectation was that the Jets would do everything in their power to limit Parsons on Sunday. Instead, they played right into the Cowboys' strengths and let Parsons wreak havoc on a struggling Jets offensive line.

The Jets asked Duane Brown to block Parsons one-on-one, with no help from additional blockers, on a shocking 14 snaps in Sunday's game. That's a lot to ask any offensive tackle in the NFL to handle, let alone a 38-year-old who missed most of the summer recovering from major shoulder surgery.

Parsons responded by racking up a whopping nine pressures, four QB hits, and two sacks. He single-handedly changed the complexion of the game, and it's because the Jets allowed him to.

That's the best Carter and the Jets were able to come up with, despite the extra hours of planning they put in. Perhaps that's what makes Sunday's performance so embarrassing for the coaching staff.

On top of that, offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett's questionable personnel usage continues to be an issue. Hackett's refusal to play Jeremy Ruckert, the team's best run-blocking tight end, more than five snaps on Sunday is puzzling.

Ruckert is Pro Football Focus' highest-graded run-blocking tight end through two weeks. Meanwhile, C.J. Uzomah finished dead last among all 79 tight ends in the NFL in PFF run-block grade in Week 2.

Uzomah continues to be an important part of the offense, even lining up at wide receiver in some formations. All the while, Ruckert sat on the bench while the Jets struggled to get their ground game going.

Even the Jets' approach to their rushing attack made no sense. Despite the team finding success running behind the right side of their offensive line, the Jets continued to run primarily to the left.

The Jets rushed eight times for 18 yards when running to the left. They only ran to the right twice, but each play gained six yards.

As it turns out, running behind Alijah Vera-Tucker and Mekhi Becton — the team's best run blockers — is a good idea. Running behind Duane Brown and Laken Tomlinson, especially with Micah Parsons on that side, is a bad idea.

This is simple stuff that anyone watching from home could point out. The numbers show it, too. The film definitely shows it.

The Jets came out with one of the worst game plans they could have put together on Sunday. They played into the Cowboys' strengths, gave Parsons every opportunity to take over the game, and limited the effectiveness of their own players.

That's bad coaching, and it falls largely on the duo of Hackett and Carter.

Maybe this proves that spending extra time to prepare doesn't always yield better results. Or perhaps it just shows that the Jets might not have the right guys in charge.

Either way, changes need to be made entering Week 3. The Jets aren't going to find success with this type of offensive game plan.

 

 

 

It's almost like they threw the game... Don't run behind your best players... Refuse to put out your best blocking TE... Stop running the ball the strength of the offense...Don't add blockers to stop Parsons

Were they trying to make Zach look bad?

Answer:  b/c this coaching staff was assembled to coach one of the best qbs in history who understands where to go with the ball and doesn’t need special blocking assignments.

Belicheat defensive game plan will be very similar and try to force Zach into mistakes. Need to have TEs and fullback on field and run right behind AVT and Becton over and over with Hall. We cant have Judon do what Parson's did. 

I am not sure why the Jets dont run quick smoke screens to WRs to get the ball out of Zach's hands quickly. Activate Brownlee since he is a bigger receiver and can help block.

Play action would draw defenders to defend the run and allow the QB more time to throw, Helping the O line is the idea.
I get that .. but with zero pass pro .. the DL will stifle that sh*t for multiple sacks and sniffed out screens behind the line.

I understand that many of the players were supporting and encouraging Zach behind the scenes during and after the game.  Seems to me the whole team knew this debacle was on the coaches.  The coaches are the only ones who didn't know, before, during , or after the game.  WTF!!!  

I love JD but his CS is looks like they are fraying around the edges, unable to get over the AR loss.    

Go Jets! :)

They did that and had Uzomah on Parsons. Which then ended up Parsons taking the football away. 

That green haired bastard bozo needs to be benched yesterday. (But also dumb coaching)
