Rex Ryan Unleashes the New York Jets' New Two-Headed Monster
On Monday, the New York Jets returned to Florham Park to learn more about Rex Ryan’s plan for 2012. And did they ever! ESPN’s Rich Cimini has reported that the Jets intend to unveil two different offenses in 2012:
You have to give Ryan points for creativity on this one. Let's look at some of the potential benefits and pitfalls of Ryan’s two-headed monster.
- Maximizes Talent: The Jets would be remiss to have such an explosive, game-changing player holding a clipboard on the sideline.
- Looks Can Be Deceiving: Somehow I doubt that the Jets will be using the same ole Wildcat in 2012. ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio reports that the Jets intend to use Tebow as an H-Back, a fullback and as a running back. The jury is still out on whether he will see any time at long snapper.
- Potential Unifier: The two-headed monster marries both Sanchez and Tebow to the fate of the offense. A knock on the productivity of the offense would be a knock on both players.
- Reinforces Team Identify: Smash-mouth football.
- Chemistry: A two-headed system might not afford Sanchez the time needed to gel, and make game-time adjustments, with his receivers.
- Lopsided Offensive Production: Could lead to finger-pointing, name-calling, and shoving matches.
- Lack of Flexibility: Ever heard the phrase, “You made your bed, now sleep in it?” Committing to a two-headed system would make a midseason QB change nearly impossible. The Jets would have to scrap half of their playbook and install a Tebow-centric offense on the fly. Not happening.
At the end of the day, Ryan is moving forward with installing his two-headed monster. The team can either buy into this system or fall apart as they did in 2011. What a convenient team-building exercise!
