Calvin Pace Chat with Fans Set for Friday

Posted by Eric Allen on November 2, 2011 – 5:26 pm

The Jets have a pivotal game Sunday in Buffalo and Calvin Pace will discuss the matchup with Jets Nation Friday afternoon at about 12:30 p.m. After the Green & White finish their last full workout of the week, Pace will take questions from fans on newyorkjets.com, twitter.com/nyjets, and facebook.com/Jets.

The Pace chat will be broadcast live simultaneously on newyorkjets.com and Facebook.com/Jets. Pace, who is tied with former Bills LB Aaron Maybin for the team lead with three sacks this season, has racked up three sacks, an interception and a forced fumble in his career against the Bills.

Pace and his teammates will be challenged by a Bills club that is averaging 30.1 points an outing. Buffalo also sports a 4-0 record at home and has averaged 34 points in games played at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

But something has to give because the Jets defense ranks third in the NFL with 16 takeaways and also is limiting opposition quarterbacks to a league-low 60.5 passer rating. The pass rush has been consistent all season, having collected 18 sacks, and Pace and company will attempt to disrupt the red-hot Ryan Fitzpatrick.

While we’ll take questions live, we’ll also collect some questions early so send them in to us now at newyorkjets.com, twitter.com/nyjets and facebook.com/Jets. See you Friday at 12:30.

    Keys for Buffalo Game
    1) Jets must hold Bills to under 100 yds rushing.
    2) Kerley is becoming a factor. His effectiveness takes heat off of Keller. Jets must look for Keller.
    3) DO NOT hand tackle or try to strip the ball. Hit Jackson low, hard & often.
    4) We should score a lot both running & passing. Bills “D” is 26th giving up yardage.
    5) Take away the quick 3 step drop by Fitzpatrick. Force him to throw long.
    6) ST are playing great. We fans take them for granted. KO coverage has been insane! We must keep this up!

    The Jets pass rush is being over looked by many. This will be a big test for the Jets and RF really gets rid of the ball fast so i think blitzing him all day will not happen. I think they play more coverage and sprinkle in a blitz here or there. They need to play them very much like they do the Pats and the Manning Colts of the past.
    The media is trying to make something out of nothing with Holmes’ #’s this year. Sure they aren’t what anybody expected. Several things come into play. One Mark is spreading the ball around to everybody, two Holmes has been targeted 41 times, 5.8 per game. Last year 7.8 per game. Two passes less isn’t the end of the world especially since they went into the season with a different offesnve philosophy and trying

    to get some chemistry with Plax. The biggest factor is teams have gone to school on how to take away that money slant play for Holmes and have done a good job with it so far.As always the media is trying to make something out of nothing.
    Hey if they run the ball 40 times this week and win thats all i care about. Stats are very interesting and telling but winning is what gets you into the playoffs not stats.

    Ira, I agree that the media is always, or almost always, trying to make something out of nothing, especially when the writer in question’s name is Cimini. I also agree that, as Lombardi famously said, “Winning isn’t everything, but the effort to win is the only thing.” However, to deny that our passing game has fallen apart at several times this yr is folly. Between injuries to the OL, bad play by the OL, inconsistent accuracy in throwing by Sanchez, and some awful reads on his part, we don’t yet have the kind of passing game to take us deep into the playoffs. And we better find it, while also continuing to run the ball better. Contrary to Rex’s often-1940s-ish view of the game, you need a lot of attack on O to go all the way these days.

    Nice analysis MarkP, Ira, the media is trying their collective hardest to get Holmes to say something to make a story and where there is smoke there is usually fire. I think it’s up to Sanchez now to keep Holmes in check.

    Anybody else feel like Maybin is gonna have the game of his life! I see him faking the Blitz and dropping into coverage for an Int. He has now had plenty of time to learn the D and with his speed there should be no reason why he can’t cover.

    Look, the media can always push the right buttons to get a story, especially with the athlete of today,it is all about me, funny how fans always say the media blows things out of proportion when it is against your team,all the athlete has to do is shut up and it would be called defamation of character,so there must be vilidity to it,right.

    jet fan tom, whenever problems about the passing game come up,you always sight reasons except for the difference at wide receiver, Burress and Mason at the start for Cotchery and Edwards,which also denied Kerley in the springtime.Don’t know of another playoff team that let two-thirds of their starting receivers go this past year.

    Hey GaryC, I kept saying we had to sign Holmes, Edwards, and J-Co, go argue with Ira, who kept saying it was going to be impossible to sign even Holmes and Edwards. Turned out he was right but that doesn’t make what the FO did right. I remember Ira talking about Holmes and Edwards representing too much money to spend at WR, as if WR isn’t one of the most important positions in today’s pass-happy NFL. By contrast, RBs, especially FBs, are becoming less important, but Rex still talks dreamily about Jim Nance.

    Maybin will be motivated. We better seal the edges and slow the run game or the Bills will gash us for big plays.
