That's fine and dandy and all but the challenge with this time against the Steelers is that they have the footage from the playoff game versus the Jets last year. I'm sure they'll work a few of those wrinkles into their game plan.
Everyone in the world has seen "the footage." Having the personnel to execute it is another story altogether. Think the Jets 3 weeks ago had seen "the footage?"

In the Starting Line-Up
Koppen is no longer the center against the Steelers...this year it's Dan Connolly going up against Casey Hampton who might be the best NT Connolly has seen yet...this never before seen matchup in the trenches could be very interesting.

Isn't Hampton injured?

I think the change we will see is in the Steelers offense. I wont be surprised if they go a little hurry up and spread the pats D 5 wides instead of their conventional running the ball stuff.

Rotational Player and Threatening Starter's Job
Connolly's been pretty darn good for the Patriots since replacing Koppen. It would be interesting to see a direct comparison between Koppen and Connolly's performances at center.

Don't need to. The dramatic increase in the number blown protection assignments resulting in unblocked rushers this tells the story of Koppen's value over Connolly.

I take it you have some sort of metric to support that claim for the rest of us to peruse (or at the very least comparative video footage)?

This isn't the Cowher Steelers - they play Arians-Ball now in Pittsburgh.

Alot of multiple 3+ WR formations, alot less FB reliant stuff (which Mendenhall was crying about a little while ago).

There won't be much Bettis-inspired '3 yards and a cloud of dust' going on this sunday.

ROFLMAO!

That may be the stupidest post of the year on this website.

The actual JETS THEMSELVES lost to the Pats three weeks ago.

Perhaps in your addled head you think the Jets didn't have access to their OWN footage of last year's playoff game?

Where do we get these new posters????

So just because we beat them a few weeks ago you don't think teams are going to study the loss to them last year? We didn't even beat them that convincingly and it was because our run game, not our pass game, that we did win. You know nothing about Football or game preparation. You probably didn't even play Pop Warner. I'm so glad you're not on the Patriot's coaching staff.

God where do these old farts get their entitlement from????:bricks:

Obviously we adapted our offense slightly but the Jets didn't run the same exact scheme as they did in the playoffs. No one ever does that against a familiar foe. Everyone adapts slightly but the truth is there is a lot of great looks in from that game that other teams will throw at us. Will they use it 60 out of 60 plays? Obviously not. But will it be sprinkled in here and there? You bet you sweet ass it will.

So if you're the Steelers this week which game videos are you watching? Our 57-X blowouts from 2007 or our losses to Baltimore, Jets, Cleveland and struggles against the Cowboys?

You guys are such level 0 thinkers. I don't even know why I'm wasting my time trying to educate you on strategy.

It really doesn't, though, because line calls are helped significantly with experience, and Connolly will have the rest of the season to get up to speed.

Heard somewhere that Brady had taken on the task of making some of the line calls. Not sure if so but makes some sense. If so, this should decrease for Brady with Connolly's time in the OC position.

Because your Steelers are playing our Pats this week and your coal mine closed down for the year?

Honestly, anyone who writes that the Steelers have an advantage for watching footage of the Jets win over the Pats last year - - without understanding that the Jets had that same footage AND PERSONAL ONFIELD EXPERIENCE OF THAT GAME and STILL got manhandled by the Pats 3 weeks ago - - is so mind blowingly stupid, that one can only pray for your well-being in making it through your day. Don't forget to eat a lunch.

And anyone who thinks that game plans in the NFL are so vanilla as to one scheme all game is so mind blowingly stupid.

Don't forget to make sure you put on two of the same type of shoe.

I just tried that and I'm returning the pair to the shoe store. They don't match.
