Some Serious Questions After Week 3




I'm happy we got a win and are in first place..but I have some serious questions...

1. Why is Quinton Coples not in? We drafted this guy OVER Ingram, Chandler Jones, Nick Perry, Courtney Upshaw (all of whom are starting and contributing for there teams) yet we are sending out Marcus Dixon over him. Why? Our pass rush is as slow is not slower than last year and it was evident in the past two games. Yes the Dolphins have an alright o-line and I dug the QC pick because I thought we'd be running a 4-3 but the front 7 of Pace, Pouha, Dixon/DeVito, Wilk with McIntyre as well we are giving QB's way TOO much time. It is horrendous and we are relying so much on our coverage but now that Revis is out for the season we won't have that luxury. All pre-season we heard what a monster Wilkerson has been but he has been nothing special either so far. The fact that we invested our past 2 first round picks on 1 player who is essentially holding up blockers and another who is doing the same WHEN HE IS ON THE FIELD is really making me second guess Tannenbaums/our scouts judgment.

2. Why aren't we using Joe McKnight on offense. For the past 3 seasons he has seemed to be the person who possess the most electricity on offense yet we rarely use him. Why don't they try to split him out wide or do screens with him. We CONSTANTLY do stretch runs with Greene who obviously don't possess the speed to do so. The only plays we've run with McKnight is that idiotic Wildcat sweep where he runs in motion to take the reverse that is telegraphed to the defense BEFORE the snap. When the Jets had Leon Washington and mixed him with Thomas Jones we kept defense off balance, we are so predictable now.

3. Why haven't the coaches realized that Greene isn't an every down back. I loved Greene in '09 but with that o-line we had 4 first round picks blocking and (eventual) Pro Bowler Brandon Moore was the 5th linemen, with the holes they were creating I could've ran for a 1,000. SG is obviously a brusier running back in the vein of Michael Bush but for some reason the Jets try to use him on tosses/stretches and even passing plays. Running backs like this are rarely effective starters especially these days and it really raises the question of what does the coaching staff see because it is apparent Greene isn't an every down back and Powell and McKnight seem to offer so much more burst when they are in the game.


I know that the coaching staff knows more about football than ANY of us will ever know in 10 lifetimes but these questions still stand out and are frustrating because the offensive quagmires I thought would be resolved with the termination of Schotty. For all the great things Rex has done this team is seeming to constantly taking steps back and with the whiffs on draft picks, poor personal selection and poor free agent signings I don't feel that good about this teams future. I know I might be, being a tad pessimistic but I can't help but feel like I'm not the only one that feels this way...
