Green Rewind, November 7, 2015 by Marty Schupak

  I expect the Jets to bounce back this week. Let’s keep an early eye on Cromartie, Davis and Colon to see if they have enough individual pride to bounce back from last week. Jacksonville’s Blake Bortles is another young quarterback who is getting better but has thrown a large number of “pic sixes” since he came into the league. This year he has 15 touchdown passes and 8 interceptions. The receiving duo of Allen Robinson and Allen Hurms is excellent! Running Back T.J. Yeldon is above average. I would look for the Jags to try and mirror the game plan of the Patriots and Raiders and come out passing. Look for Bortles to do a lot of three step drops, exploiting the middle of the field and the Jet linebackers before focusing on his excellent wide receivers.
  The Jaguars are 19th against the rush so look for Chris Ivory to have a good game. This is the type of game that the Jets can have a real balanced attack. Brandon Marshall is listed as probable but I’d be surprised if he doesn’t play. Nick Mangold should be back which should help Willie Colon. We just found out that Calvin Pryor is out. This is too bad. It is imperative we get a good pass rush this game. The Jets should elevate safety Rontez Miles from the practice squad. He did enough good things in pre-season to be given a chance.
  My strategy would be to keep Jeremy Kerley on the field as much as possible. I would limit the tight end on the line of scrimmage alternating the tight end with fullback Tommy Bohanon as an
H-Back/tight end. This way we can have three receivers at all times with one or both running backs helping with the pass protection and either can slip into the flat as a pass option.
  This is a short week. We have two games in five days playing Buffalo on Thursday night. We have to go into the week with the mentality that a split is not acceptable. We have to win both games. Everyone has got to raise their level of play including special teams, clock management, grasping and tackling.
