New York Jets Plan To Be Less Conservative, Blitz More

    Sweets All-Pro notes that the Jets were first in "blitz percentage" in 2009, and third in 2010. They fell out of the top ten the last two years after Pettine became heavily involved in the playcalling, look for that trend to reverse in 2013.

    "We're going to do a lot of blitzing and getting after people," linebacker David Harris told Rich Cimini. "There should be a different brand of football than you were used to seeing the last couple of years. ... (Last year) we played more coverage. It wasn't like '09, that's obvious. That's all I'll say about that."

    Pettine mysteriously disappeared from the Jets like a Sopranos character after last season. No one said he was whacked, but it's clear enough that Ryan wanted him to move on. (Pettine took a lateral move to the Buffalo Bills.)

    Can anybody from the Jets STFU? honest question. Pull a NE and keep yourselves out of the headlines. Case closed

    Blitzing does work against Brady, so it makes sense and with a limited offense they have to step up on D. Not having Revis Island kinda makes this necessary too

    Harris only said 3 sentences n Cimini turned it into a "story"...calm your nipples, guy. This is all media driven.

    ...and I fade back to black.
