Let's take a look at game two, the New York Jets victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. I chose three plays to highlight for your viewing pleasure, two positive plays, one negative. Two offensive plays, one defensive. Let's take a look!
With 8:34 left in the first quarter, Bilal Powell had a thirty-seven yard run to the right sideline. This looked like the offensive line of 2009, with a gap so big you could drive a MAC truck through it. As Stephen Peterman pulled to open to gateway, Powell added a nice burst. He was helped by Stephen Hill, who demonstrated some excellent run blocking to engage the cornerback. Eventually, the safety and cornerback tracked Powell down.
At 10:01 left in the second quarter, we saw Mark Sanchez do Mark Sanchez things. With a wide receiver open to score an easy touchdown, Sanchez had his mind made up from the snap on where he was going to put the ball. Kellen Winslow didn't help with an odd route that can't be classified as anything other than "bad," but Sanchez should have known better, and not done that.
With 3:17 left in the second quarter, we see the much hyped Quinton Coples as the "rush" linebacker. He's lined up in a traditional 3-4 set, and doesn't bite on the play-fake. Like, not at all. It helps that the Jaguars had run this same fake several times earlier, and the Jets had bitten on it each time. Not today, junior. Not today.
