LYONS: A Game of Coordination, Domination

Posted by jetsstaff on November 10, 2008 – 10:26 am

According to Webster’s Dictionary, the word "dominate" means: "control, be the most powerful or influential member or part of something." As of 5 o’clock yesterday Webster’s added a picture of the Jets’ game against the Rams.

Let’s start on the defensive side of the ball. They were outstanding, starting with the play of Eric Barton (14 tackles, a half sack and a fumble recovery). He along with 10 other green jerseys were everywhere, creating turnover after turnover and even scoring on defense when Abram Elam sacked Rams quarterback Marc Bulger, forcing a fumble that was returned by Calvin Pace for a touchdown.

Defensive game ball goes to coordinator Bob Sutton. Bob had his unit prepared and ready to play. The defensive scheme was to attack the Rams with everything they had for 60 minutes and that’s what they did. Bob is allowing his players to play, putting them in the best positions to come up with big-time plays. They are the real deal. Great job by all.

Offensively, great job by the offensive line. Thomas Jones running for three touchdowns, protecting Brett Favre all day, not allowing a sack. But the most impressive stat: scoring on their first seven possessions. Brian Schottenheimer, the offensive coordinator, did an excellent job, calling plays with play action and controlling the passing game, and no turnovers.

Special teams were perfect, as was Jay Feely. Icing on the cake: a 55-yard field goal to end the first half.

Bottom line, the Jets started fast and finished strong. They had a game plan and executed it to perfection. They dominated the game.

Once again, the energy level in the stadium was unbelievable. If I had extra game balls, I’d give each one of you one.

Now it’s show time in New England. It not what New England brings to the table, it’s what YOU bring to the table. You have something special here — build on it. Believe that you can win and settle for nothing less. Remember what I said last week: "If you think you can or think you can’t, you’re probably right."

It doesn’t get any better than this … IT’S SHOW TIME.

    Well said Mr.Lyons,you must be proud!You should give one of those game balls to Punter Hodges,who continiously catches these long snaps on Field Goal attemts that have been all over the place for weeks now.Can someone PLEASE talk to Dearth and tell him that his ONLY job is to long snap and that their are Thousands of people depending on him every Sunday to do his Job RIGHT!

    I’m totally expecting Belichek to fake a punt or field goal,or onside a kickoff on us Thursday.For some reason,it seems teams see something there on us,maybe they just figure Leon will take it back to at least that spot anyway,but at home,it’s worth it for NE to try to brake our will with a fake.I would be on alert for anything from HIM,he is desperate to brake us.

    Marty, Like you said a perfect game in all areas. Loved the attacking defense and they need to build on this from both sides of the ball. I don’t expect 47 pts but they need to bottle what they did vs the rms and take it to Foxboro. The mantra for the week has to be Losing is not an option!!! Its time to BEAT the Pats. GO JETS!!!!!!

    love the article Marty and as usual dead on the JETS need to take this 3game momentum into Foxboro and just play Jets football and they can beat New England joey porter said it beast cassel aint brady they need to play 60 min of hard nosed football take nothing for granted and leave it all on the field huge division game need the split miami hot on the trail hosting oakland jets need the W period

    I agree with Marty we need to go into NE with that no lose attitude pin our ears back & go kick some butt…. We really are a better team its only the sigma of losing to them & little bill that holds us back .. If mangini – schotty & sutton go in & play full scale take no prisoners football we win by 20 .. If he plays carefull not to lose then we will …Get tough jets let them know who u are

    The JETS OFFENSIVE Line and WRs are really BLOCKING great! That is what offense is all about, good BLOCKING by the Offensive Line. Remember that people! Offensive Line and WRs (BLOCKING) and PLAY ACTION FAKE by the QB.

    Two areas they need to work on. The red zone play calling has to improve I can’t stand the spread O at the goal line it is not working and since the running game has clearly picked up play action has been more effective the last few weeks stick with a base formation. 2nd Mangini better figure a way to stop the Pats WR screens which killed us the first time. Revis man coverage on Moss double Welker

    Sack Cassel… our D is oustdanding, we have to make sure to protect Brett, he will be a target. I am not an armchair coach… I just want the Jets to Win…..
    I LOVE CHRIS JENKINS!!!! honestly, I love them all:)
    GO JETS!!!!!

    Re what Mike X Jet fan said. To add to that …If Mangini does not try to OUTCOACH Belicheck but lets the jets play,we will win. If not,we will lose. We r on a roll,lets go into Foxboro and kick butt

    uncle joe,
    Thanks man but you can call it the Drew and Frank show. It would be funnier. And don’t forget 27 pts off of turnovers yesterday. The defense has an attitude and they are playing with a chip on their shoulder. The o-line need to do the same thing and push the Pats all over Foxboro Thursday night. I want the Jets to run the ball down the Pats throats. Don’t want Favre throwing 30 times.

    Not that I would wish an injury on anyone, but is seems the Pats are without Linebacker Adalius Thomas as he broke his arm against the Bills. Hopefully we can capitalize on this (unlike last time when the Pats had just lost Tom Brady).

    uncle joe, Here is a special one for you. Since 12/01 the Jets are 2 -12 vs the Pats. Both wins coming up in Foxboro in 02 and 06. The last time the Jets beat the Pats at home was back in 2000 on a MNF game with Groh. Its time to turn the table on the matchup and start a Jets winning streak vs the Pats. GO JETS!!!!

    JETS D SLAP THE SNOT out of cassel early, CANT let him get any type of rythym. JONES needs to steam roll over Brusci and vrabel !shut them down !early dont give them any momentum to play with they are masters of eating the clock and we cant give them that chance if the jets play like sunday could be a real happy hour on friday this is the jets biggest game by far could be div game and first place

    The Jets have 2 win 1 of these next 2 games if we lose to the Pats & the Titans we will be 6 & 5 & would either have to win out or win 4 of 5 just to make the playoffs. If we did that we would be the lowest seed & have to win 3 in a row on the road win 1 of the next 2 & we are in a good spot

  16. By mike ex jet fan on Nov 10, 2008 | Reply

    Plain & simple its time for us to inflict our will on the Pats not the other way around.. Frank is right if we lose the next 2 games the last 2 are for nothing .. 2 more AFC loses 1 in the division will hurt bad .. Miami has easy road ahead & NE will have the advantage..So this is put up or shut up .. We have the talent & on a roll Time has come take the bull by the horns .. LETS GET THIS DONE

    just read that the multi time pro bowler line backer adalius thomas broke his arm sunday against the BILLS so even more good news for the jets. wanted to share that news if no one knew this ,helps the JETS even more for the thursday night smack down. now there are alot of key players out for NE so no reason why JETS should lose this one and like i said earlier puts us in great spot for the div.

    Marty– we all want this to end on Febuary 1st with Brett being asked the folowing– Brett you have just won the Super Bowl– where are you going— I am going to Disney World!!!! Why not!!!!!!

    I can’t believe I’m saying this but I’ll be O.K. with a loss at the Pats only if we attack, put Cassell on his back and not play nickel & dime defense not to lose. Our time is now, we need to show Belicheck its the players that win championships.

    this the only time i feel confident about beatin new england probaly in the last 7 years…theres nothing better then seeing belicheks face after a loss in his dirty sweatshirt

    Very well spoken Marty, the game was amazing and I hope they bring that same intensity on defense vs the Patriots. Not to mention give the ball to Jones a little more, because he only has 160 carries this season. Also, the ball should go towards L.Washington a little more in the passing game, he has break-away ability. Much luck to our boys in green this coming thursday. GO JETS!!!

    tough game at NE. at home no dought we win the game. lets see what happens. no turnovers and i like our chances.lets face it though, with brady out its now or never aint it?dont want to here that belicheks a great coach. no excuse. tit for tat we have the better players. players play. again it wont be easy but unfortunetly losing to them at home wk 2 makes this one a must!

    Great Win. Too bad the Best game in the NFL next week will be played on 4 days rest and limited to NFL network.

    We have not ran a successful screen all season, Niko. Jones will get his carries, we need to stay away from O’neal, he tore us up last time. Brad Smith needs to run some routes along with his package. He is a play maker. We cannot get conservative with our O, Pats will win a close one. This is a must win, or we have accomplished nothing but a media driven train wreck. Oakland beat us, remember?

    I’m so confident I think I’ll watch the game in a Hartford sports bar. Go Jets!!!

    Once again Marty great piece and what a great game. The jets showed heart this weekend and are proving they are more then just some team form the AFC EAST. This next game should mean more to you guys then anything that is in front of you at this point. Take from them everything and give them nothing and show the Patriots they aren’t what they appear to be. I hope with everything you guys win.

    It comes down to the two fronts, if they are for real,this could be a great season, like i said in my last post, i feel for feeley, but consistancy is the issue, if any one can coach him up, its this staff

  28. By Ray on Nov 11, 2008 | Reply

    Row, what is your love affair with Deltha O’Neal? He tore us up? 5 tackles. 0 sacks, 0 passes defensed, 0 forced fumbles. We got beat by the line play. They controlled the line of scrimmage and they got great pressure on the qb, by their LB’s. Seymour tore us up, Adalius Thomas (whose injured now) tore us up. But Deltha O’Neal was on the field.
