“At my signal, unleash hell”. For the New York Jets and Mark Sanchez, hell arrives Sunday when Mario Williams and the Buffalo Bills come to town.  A nightmare of epic proportion may ensue for Sanchez as he must rely on RT Austin Howard for protection.  Howard gets only his second NFL career start and faces Williams fresh off his $100 million contract.    The Bills will exploit this mismatch unmercifully. Howard will need assistance containing the onslaught of pass rushing terror, otherwise, look for Sanchez to be sacked multiple times, hurried, and picked off and the Tebow chants to begin.

To much fanfare, the Jets will finally reveal the Wildcat and Tim Tebow.  Expect the Bills to be fully prepared defensively as their quarterback coach, David Lee, is the person who introduced the Wildcat to Tony Sparano in Miami. So the surprise factor is nil and any success on Wildcat plays hinge on Tebow’s sheer athleticism.  Other athletic, yet unpolished players to watch for are rookies WR Stephen Hill and DE Quinton Coples.  Hill presents a tremendous physical size advantage against the Bills small cornerbacks, but he can not drop passes thrown his way.  The play of Coples has been the one bright spot for the Jets this preseason. He had 4.5 sacks, performing  like a gladiator.

In the movie Gladiator, Maximus says, “Whatever comes out of these gates, we’ve got a better chance of survival if we work together. Do you understand? If we stay together we survive”.  The Jets may survive on Sunday, but can they win?
