Post Pressure is on Jets to get after QBs
Mark Schlereth isn't just another pretty TV face. He played guard for 12 NFL seasons, won two Super Bowls and made a couple of Pro Bowls.

He knows a little something about the importance of a pass rush. Yet when he watches the New York Jets play, he doesn't see much for opposing offenses to worry about.

The Jets managed to sack Tom Brady three times Monday night, but they generally failed to disrupt him. The Jets didn't hit Brady once other than those sacks, and the New England Patriots' quarterback had a monster game: 326 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions.

Schlereth notes a lack of pressure is a major concern for the Jets, who will try to rebound Sunday against the Miami Dolphins at the Meadowlands.

"The one thing I look at with this Jets football team: defensive pressure," Schlereth said. "You're a blitz team. You don't have anybody on your front three, front four, your linebacking corps that are great one-on-one pass-rushers. So you have to create pressure with your blitz.

"They're going to have to do a much better job from timing and execution for getting guys to the opponent's quarterback. Last week against the Patriots they were late, they were late on the execution of the blitz and they did not pressure Tom Brady. If they don't pressure, they don't win."

That’s been Tony Sparano’s mantra all season regarding injuries. Every player is on this roster for a reason, and that’s certainly been put to the test considering the Miami Dolphins have churned it’s roster more than any other team.
This Sunday we’ll find out if these replacement players are quality players.
Lydon Murtha or John Jerry will more than like be starting at right tackle for Vernon Carey, who is battling a lingering knee injury. Murtha’s never started an NFL game, and Jerry, the rookie the Dolphins drafted in the third round, fizzled at right guard before losing his starting spot.
Raise your hand if you think the Jets will be bringing it’s overloaded blitzes (27 this season) from the right side of the Dolphins’ offensive line (hand raised). ... l+Blogs%29
