The key to winning this game is simple:

We've prooven that we can run the ball and we've prooven that we can pass the ball.
It's all in the playcalling. If we can keep them guessing and off balanced, we will win this game.

This game will be won by the calls from the coaches.

Food for thought about our 3 wins so far:

We received the ball first in all three games
We scored on our opening drives in all three games
We have never been behind at any point during the first three games.

Eventually the other team will score first... It could very well be this week.

I'm confident that GW's defense is up to the task, but it will be interesting to see how the defensive playcalling is affected if we have to play from behind.

Good point I am nervous about how the D looks playing from behind

Interesting idea about how to get around the Jets blitzing schemes, by Carl Banks, ex Giants LB this morning on Sirius.

He said he doesn't expect the Jets to change their defensive stance regarding their pressure creating defense. They are who they are, and they will bring everything most of the time in their blitz packages, trying to force Brees into making mistakes, by getting rid of the ball early. They did exactly that when the Ravens played the Saints a few years ago, and Rex Ryan won't change their identity much. So expect lots of blitzing from the Jets.

Banks thinks, the Saints will counter that by short 3 steps drop by Brees, and hitting Bush, & Shockey in all kind of short wheel routes, and angle routes when the offensive player runs into the void created by the blitzing player, usually a LB. That will slow down the blitz considerably, especially that the more successful the short passing game becomes, the more frustrating the defense will become. Bob Papa said, that in many aspects this game reminds him of the 1985 Bears-Dolphins game, when Dan Marino killed the Bears with the short passing game. Drew Brees is every bit as cerebral as Dan Marino was, and that could be very useful in stopping the blitz, and force the Jets to play coverage defense. That's when Brees can go down field......he will have his chances, and the Saints offense can really tire out the Jets D, who won't be able to get to Brees, and after many tries, they'll just lose out.....just as the Bills D did last week.

The Saints D is a pleasant surprise, and Sanchez might be in the most difficult game of his short career. The Saints D can blitz just as often as the Jets D, and that, combined with the noise in the Dome could pose all kind of problems for the rookie QB. This game is a measuring stick on many levels, for the teams, & players alike......whoever comes out victorious, will make a giant step towards the postseason......
