Offensive Advantages Are on the Outside for the New York Jets

Once again, this new look pass first offense the Jets sport should probably focus on looking to exploit the Ravens on the outside with their receivers against some unspectacular corners instead of trying to pound the ball against an excellent front. The Ravens have had to deal with injuries in their secondary this year. Domonique Foxworth is on IR, while Chris Carr and first round pick Jimmy Smith have been banged up.

The listed starters on their depth chart are Lardarius Webb and Cary Williams. The Jets can present them with some matchup problems. Gang Green should particularly look to create matchups where Plaxico Burress takes on Webb, and Santonio Holmes faces Williams. Webb is only 5'10" and 182 pounds. Burress has a huge size advantage. On the other side, Williams looks a bit shaky. The Ravens seem to like playing off coverage but particularly so with Williams from what I have seen. The corner seem to play conservatively, giving up space underneath on comeback routes to guard against getting burned on a double move. A speedy deep threat like Holmes who comes out of breaks so well can give him problems.

If the Jets are going to win, they probably need their receivers to exploit these areas where an edge exists.
