Sheds the FB but gets pancaked by Colon. 2. 1st and 10, 12:14. Facing the Wildcat. All about gap control on these types of misdirection plays. Williams playing strongside “C” gap and the back cuts inside. But he helped forced the play inside to the flow. 3. 2nd and 9, 11:39. Nice job staying at home, not biting on the window dressing (end around, FB blocking away from run – picture to follow) Colon chips the DE and works to the rookie, sealing him. Second Drive Snaps: 6 Run: 4 Drop/Blitz: 2/0 Play-by-Play 1. 1st and 10, 9:04 1st. Lead strong, Williams takes on the FB. Able to shed him and shows good hustle running the back down from behind after a ten yard pickup. Good individual play. 2. 1st and 10, 8:20. Bu...

Dick LeBeau Thinks Sean Spence Will Be Successful

With second-year linebacker Sean Spence now back practicing this week for the first time since he suffered his serious knee in the 2012 preseason finale, it is still unknown whether or not he will eventually get removed from the Pittsburgh Steelers PUP list over the course of the next few weeks in order to resume his career.

LB Jarvis Jones could miss Sunday with head injury

Although there was no indication that Pitsburgh Steelers linebacker Jarvis Jones had an injury following their win against the New York Jets Sunday, he missed practice Wednesday due to a "head" injury, the team said, via We think head injury we think concussion, and if that's the diagnosis, Jones could very miss this Sunday's matchup against...

Better Results This Time Around For Vince Williams

By Matthew Marczi The more rookie Vince Williams plays, the more comfortable he appears. That is, of course, to be expected, but it is also good to see the development on tape. By no means is he free of errors, but those errors are most often of a physical nature, rather than a mental or schematic lapse. Against the New York Jets, Williams made a pair of very nice plays that show...

Pouncey Says He's Ahead of Schedule

We all know how the season started for the Steelers, and perhaps a big reason why was the ugly shot of bad luck we experienced on the Steelers first drive of the game week one against the Tennessee Titans. Pulling to the left, guard David DeCastro inexplicably decided to dive at Maurkice Pouncey's blocked opponent without looking. DeCastro's full weight went right into...

New York Jets Defensive Snap Count – Analysis and Previewing Week 7

Due to Rex Ryan’s complicated defensive schemes that sometimes put players in positions they’re not fully accustomed to, I decided to also note where New York Jets players were lining up, along with tallying their snap count.  For example, I notched down what “techniques” defensive lineman were lined up in, if safeties were playing on the deeper level or in the front seven’s...

Antonio Cromartie not using injuries as excuse for poor play

BY NICK ST. DENISAntonio Cromartie hasn't been the same player this year.Cromartie's stellar play last year in the absence of fellow cornerback Darrelle Revis made Revis somewhat dispensable, as the Jets still boasted the league's second-best pass defense without him.Since then, Cromartie has been subpar. He's also been dinged up, but he won't admit his hip and...

Rex Ryan For Once Not Talking About Sex

The Jets square off against the Patriots on Sunday, which is an important game if they’re still entertaining fantasies of winning the AFC East. Nevertheless, the Jets are in the Wild Card hunt, so taking a win from their hated rivalries would be doubly sweet.

Rex: Creativity a must in rematch with Brady

The New York Jets held Tom Brady to just 185 passing yard in Week 2, but ultimately unraveled down the stretch en route to a 13-10 in Foxborough. If Rex Ryan and company hope to pull the upset on the return leg of the AFC East matchup, the Jets will need to get creative defensively to keep Brady and the Patriots on their heels.
