The NFL kicks off its 2012 season with a good old-fashioned rivalry game, not to mention one that could have a profound impact on the playoff picture down the road.
It all begins with the exact same matchup in which the league closed out its 2011 regular season, with the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys facing off in a grudge match at MetLife Stadium. The two NFC East contenders last locked horns in Northern New Jersey on New Year's Day in what turned out to be one of the most pivotal outcomes of last year's campaign, a 31-20 victory by the Giants.
While the offense is being revamped, and Mularkey and his assistants are trying to reformat quarterback Blaine Gabbert after a horrific rookie season, the defensive system and bulk of the staff have been in place for a while now.
Gabbert has nice moments, but his overall inconsistencies halt any anxious proclamations that he made a significant offseason jump.
No matter how much players and coaches talk about his gains in leadership, no matter how much faith the organization has in him, no matter how patient they are, it comes down to making throws under pressure.
The early snapshot says the defense can be really good, but that a limited offense could be the obstacle to the surprise the Jaguars would so like to produce. There is a lot of time to work on what’s been installed, to find what works and to run it better than it’s been run so far.
1. Is Gabbert good enough? He folded under pressure too often last season, but the rush wasn’t all he was facing. The team drafted him 10th overall intending for him to sit and learn for a season, but that didn’t pan out and he was hurried into starter status for 14 games during which he had poor pass protection and very limited receivers.
There were big distractions off the field, too: Jack Del Rio got fired and the team was sold.
Schottenheimer’s tightly structured system was complicated in terms of verbiage and presnap motions, but in execution, it had a lot of either-or reads that allowed Sanchez to spend more time dialing in on one or two specific targets. Sparano’s system is theoretically simpler, but it will feature more combination routes for the receivers, which means Sanchez will have to read coverages more and work through progressions quicker. That’s not his strength.
Sanchez is very good at deciphering defenses before the snap. He mixes his cadences well and is fairly fine-tuned when it comes to dummy gestures. He has a good feel for determining where to go with the ball. The problem is, once the ball is snapped, Sanchez becomes his own foil. If his first read isn’t there, his focus often shifts to what’s happening around his pocket, rather than what’s happening downfield. Occasionally, this frenetic approach will lead to a fantastic sandlot-style third-and-long conversion. But this frenetic approach is often what puts the Jets in third-and-long in the first place, and most of the time, it leads to stalled drives.
It was surprising to see the Jets give Sanchez a new contract over the off-season, even if some in the N.F.L. have called the deal “lipstick on a pig.” Sanchez was set to earn $17.75 million over 2012 and 2013; he’ll now earn $20.5 million. That’s a relatively minor increase, but the difference is the $20.5 million is guaranteed. So they’re committed to him for at least two more years; after that, the contract essentially features three consecutive one-year options. This is a one foot in, one foot out move by the Jets, which makes sense. They’ve had some success with Sanchez, but at the same time, they know he doesn’t have scintillating tools (he’s accurate throwing between the numbers but lacks the arm strength to zip the ball downfield or outside, for example). They also know his next step in Sparano’s system is as likely to be backward as forward.
Trent Williams has yet to live up to being selected fourth overall selection in 2010, and will have to really step up to protect RGIII's blindside. Kory Lichtensteiger returns after tearing his ACL last season, and will need to step up as well.
The Redskins defensive line is pretty solid. Adam Carriker finally is starting to live up to his 2007 first round selection, as he posted 5.5 sacks last season. Stephen Bowen also is a solid pass rusher, and Barry Cofield brought veteran leadership to the unit last season.
The Redskins best unit has to be their linebackers, by far. With two college defensive ends playing outside linebacker in Ryan Kerrigan and Brian Orakpo, their pass rush is nearly unstoppable. London Fletcher remains one of the top linebackers in the league, even at the age of 37. Riley Perry is a heavy hitter with a lot of potential.
After releasing Oshiomogho Atogwe after a disappointing season, and losing LaRon Landry to free agency, the Redskins went out and signed three former starters in Brandon Meriweather, Madieu Williams, and Tanard Jackson to compete with holdovers Reed Doughty and DeJon Gomes for the two safety positions. DeAngelo Hall will be playing in the slot in nickel and dime packages, and should do well with the transition.
Overall, the Redskins are a good enough team to win now. It will take them a year to really hit their stride, but this team has a lot of talent. Playing in the NFC East is tough, though, and with a rookie quarterback, I don't see them in the playoffs this year. Next year, they very well could be there though.
It is unlikely that any running back in today’s NFL will be able to run with that amount of consistency for that many years, but the most likely player to emulate Martin is Ray Rice.
Like Martin, Rice is a very consistent back, who has run for more than 1,200 yards in each of his last three seasons. Also like Martin, Rice has a good combination of power and speed, and is a very durable back who has not missed a game in the past three years.
Rice has a long way to go if he is to be a Hall of Fame running back, but if he can continue what he is doing for another six to eight years (which is a long, long time for a running back), he has a shot at Canton.
Willie Roaf was one of the NFL’s best and most consistent offensive tackles over his 13-year career. Roaf spent 12 of those seasons as a left tackle, and made it to the Pro Bowl in 11 of those seasons, with three first team All-Pro selections.
Joe Thomas is currently the NFL’s best left tackle, but considering he has already been a three-time All-Pro, he is likely to surpass Roaf’s many achievements, and is more worthy of comparison to an upcoming Hall of Famer, Jonathan Ogden.
