Santonio Holmes thinks the Jets needed to adjust quicker to what the Raiders were doing defensively Sunday. Link is to a Jenny Vrentas Connor Orr article.

"We'll see come Sunday if the Ravens switch up their gameplan from doing something different to what they feel can work against us," Holmes said. "And we'll know come Sunday if the adjustments have been made for us to react to what they're doing."

I am not one to withhold criticism about Brian Schottenheimer when I think it is justified, but I disagree with Holmes. Given the team's offensive line struggles and lack of Nick Mangold, the offensive coordinator was a bit limited in what he could do. He had to scheme around offensive line issues. He did a good job in the first half, calling plenty of roll outs, screens, moving pockets, outside runs, and extra help for offensive linemen. The Jets moved it well early. The Raiders did adjust and started not biting on fakes, but the Jets just did not have the personnel to win playing straight up. In any event, the defense was much more to blame for that loss than the offense.
