With two Sunday night games under our belt, the Jets are back in the spotlight for Monday Night Football and the implications of this suddenly “must-win” game are beyond high. Looking to snap a three game losing streak and avoid possibly falling three games behind two division opponents, the Jets return home where they are 2-0 to take on division foe Miami.
At 0-5 with a backup QB, who couldn’t beat out Jimmy Claussen in Carolina and was inevitably cut for the arrival of questionable (although not questionable now) first overall pick Cam Newton, this game should turn out similar to the smack down we laid on Jacksonville in week 2.
This has not stopped Miami WR Brandon Marshall from running his mouth (somebody has to step in for OchoNoShow’s silence since it appears his days are dead and gone). In a interview this week Marshall stated he has kept his emotions in check this season, but plans on being ejected by the 2nd quarter of Monday nights game, aiming comments directly at Bart Scott and former division rival Antonio Cromartie. These are two players I would shy away from messing with being as Bart Scott is a freak of a specimen, and Cromartie impregnates everything in his path.
I expect Sanchez to build off a much better performance last week against the Cheatriots, where he was 3-4 dropped passes away from having a hell of a game. In his short career Sanchize has always stepped up when his back has been against the wall, and I expect him to play some serious ball these next four weeks.
The departure of non-existent, and apparent locker room cancer, Derrick Mason, has paved way for one of the most exciting young players on our Roster, Jeremy Kerley. Nacho connected with Kerley on a 9-yard Touchdown pass last week, and his youth and speed gives us more deep threat options (if our damn offensive line can hold long enough to let a deep route develop).
The Jets should have 8 in the box all game and completely shut down any Miami rushing attack (although that may not even be enough given our struggles against the run this year), forcing lowly Matt Moore to beat us in the passing game. The only way I see Miami scoring a touchdown with this goon at quarterback is if the sometimes elusive Reggie Bush breaks a screen pass, which the Jets have to be sitting on going into this game.
Monday Night Football; CAN’T WAIT!
Prediction: Jets 27- Dolphins 9
