5 BIG Questions
- 1.) Can Luke McCown be effective against what are likely to be some highly exotic blitzes called by Rex Ryan to confuse the newly appointed starter?
- 2.) Will the Jaguars running game be able to move the ball downfield, even when the Jets vaunted defense knows its coming?
- 3.) Can the defense repeat the stellar performance last week against Chris Johnson to make the Jets one-dimensional and force Mark Sanchez to beat them?
- 4.) Can our receivers break away from two of the best man-to-man cornerbacks in the game (Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie)?
- 5.) Do the Jaguars match the intensity of the Rex Ryan’s riled-up ruffians and find a way to stay in the ring with a premier AFC opponent?
