Football Outsiders - A Deep Dive On The Jets Air Raid System And Why It's So Deadly

Recommended Posts

So, looking ahead at the Jets, I thought it would be good to give all of you a better idea as to what this team actually is. 

First of all, they won't be easy. You can argue past games and results, but the fact is the Jets can and will be tricky. They may not have the all-star pieces, but they have a mastermind at the helm engineering a very interesting offense. It's one derived from the college Air Raid system, and it's working.

Jets offensive coordinator John Morton - former Saints WR coach and clear Sean Peyton disciple - helped create a pile of junk in a rebuild year into something that is pretty competitive. His concepts and ideas are pretty interesting and could in fact rival Kyle Shanahan's genius in a few ways. 

But that's enough fluff for now. I'll get right to the point.

This article from Football Outsiders really does give a good perspective on just how tough the Jets offense is. Sure, they lack the play-makers, but they have the right blueprint. The Panthers defense sure is lucky to get an extra two weeks to try to solve this puzzle, but by no means will this be a breeze.

I would love to see a breakdown like this of Carolina's route concepts and implication.

Their offense is easily below average in every category I can find.

I would say we have 0 excuse losing to a rebuild team , but we did lose a fluky game against the Bears.  The Jets definitely aren't the dumpster fire that the Dolphins are , but I think we should win if the players take the game seriously and we limit the turnovers. The only games we lost this year is when we had way too many turnovers.  I think we've won every game that Cam didnt throw a pick in.

I know they're "dangerous" but can we all remember that the Jets were supposed to be the 2017 version of the Browns.  They have played above their heads for a few games.

Panthers -34

Jets - 10

Considering the Jets’ passing offense is 26th in the league, it looks like a lot of teams were able to “solve this puzzle”. The Jets’ offense has certainly exceeded expectations but only because the expectations for this offense were terrible. Judging them on their own merits, they’re statistically not a good offense.

I don’t understand this line...what is there to argue besides past games and results? Imagine someone responding to your other thread about Cam’s statistics, saying “hey you can argue past games and results, but Cam is still a terrible QB”. If your argument is not driven by past games and results, then you’re basically ignoring statistics and therefore providing an entirely subjective argument.

I mean the system itself is probably better than Shanahan. Read the article itself.

If it weren’t for that, this team would be lucky to scratch a win. The team as a whole sucks because of the player’s lack of talent, but they got a tricky scheme we shouldn’t sleep on.

It amazing how our fan downplays the teams we play. 

The Jets are better than most in here are giving them credit for, and wins don't come easy in this league.
