Joe Caporoso: 12 Pack

Justin Fritze: I have nothing left to believe in at this point, the long awaited circus is upon us. The Dolphins will try their best but it will be their defense that does it. It gets a little out of hand as Sanchez literally crumbles into a ball after 6 man pass rush all day.  He throws 3 picks and the running game gets stopped at the line, leading to a few heroic shots down the field. Jets get a few turnovers themselves , maybe 4 in some sort of emotional last second manner.

Rob Celletti: The Jets fan consensus seems to be that the 2011 season will be a lost cause if the Jets can’t find a way to win on Monday night.  I tend to agree with that.  The Dolphins are an absolutely miserable football team that already has one eye on Andrew Luck.  The Jets have certainly had a bad week, but they can assuage a lot of doubts (internal and external) with a solid performance.  I expect the offensive line to play with a chip on its shoulder after being buried this week by the media and one of its own captains.  If they play well, the Jets should be able to come at the Dolphins with a balanced offensive attack that must include taking some shots down the field in the passing game. This is also the type of game, that if it’s close, the Jets might try something like a fake punt or other type of gadget play.  In the end, I think the Jets get it done.  It won’t be pretty, but I expect the defense to give Matt Moore some major problems and the offense will show some signs of life.  Jets win 20-10.

TJ Rosenthal: Jets Win if: They shut up and play ball. The Jets swagger has turned into chatter. Too much of it. Too much defending themselves from Joe Namath’s comments. Too much infighting. Too much concern about Schotty, from the fans to the players. This team simply needs to go out there and win one on one battles right from the center snap up front. This way, Mark Sanchez will have time to stretch the field and the run game will have room to maneuver. The defense has to be relentless. Smother Matt Moore and a Dolphins ground game that may feature a banged up RB in Daniel Thomas. Play desperate. Play physically. Play together. If they do, the Jets will go to 3-3.

Jets lose if: They start slow on offense and begin to worry about each other. They lose if the Defense allows QB Matt Moore the time to get comfortable in a game that in this scenario, would remain winnable into the late third quarter early fourth. The Jets have to take control with a two score lead in the second half. Otherwise the Dolphins will begin to take alot of interest in ruining the Jets season.

Chris Celletti: I think the Jets right a lot of wrongs this week thanks to the competition. Let’s be honest, the Dolphins area bad, bad football team with Matt Moore running the show at quarterback (although, they’re pretty bad with Chad Henne as is). This is a must-win for the Jets if they have any serious playoff contention hopes, and I don’t want to hear about how the Dolphins are dangerous because A) It’s a division game and B) They’re desperate for their first win. The Jets are a better team plain and simple. New York’s defense should be able to dictate the game against Moore, and I think the offense has its best and most consistent day of the season. I see Mark Sanchez having about 250 yards throwing with a couple TDs, including a long score (finally). The running game also shows some more progress, and the Jets roll to a 31-10 victory. And then all is right in JetsLand again…until next week at least.
