A Bad Time for a Short Week

This was probably not the best week for the Jets to have short preparation for an opponent. One of those reasons is the Denver Broncos have installed an unorthodox offense that features heavy uses of option plays. When facing a unique look, it is best to have extra time to prepare so everybody knows his responsibilities.

The reason this concerns me is how frequently on Sunday the Jets were confused with their defensive alignments. Guys were consistently lining up in the wrong spot and leaving big parts of the field uncovered. This is the kind of things that needs correction, but the short week limits the amount of time the coaches can dedicate to it.

I think the Broncos are going to have an extremely difficult time moving the ball on the Jets unless there are breakdowns. Given what we saw Sunday, combined with the short week and exotic looks, I am concerned about the potential for it, though.
