I have a feeling we're gonna send the other Andre deep so that Sheppard can get called for pass interference or burned quite often

I see them running the ball quite a bit and giving the Rook lots of max protect packages. We haven't stopped the run well in the past and we haven't rushed the passer well so somethings gotta give unless it's us.

... i would lean away from jones in fantasy league's ... if you have another comparable option ...

... his goal-line production has not been what we as jets fans have hoped to see over the years and he is not a homerun threat who will take it to the house ... if your up the middle run d is as bad as many of you are saying that may be the only saving grace for getting him td's ... if it was me personally i'd be more inclined to start washington even though he will get less touches on offense ... probably 20-25 vs. 10-15 range ... he should have a chance to put up some good numbers in the return game as well ...

I voted yes. It's silly to think that Revis could not shut AJ down. Any given Sunday is why. I hope Andre goes ballistic on him and i'm sure he most likely would but you never know. Anything's possible on Sundays. Any Given Sunday are words I've learned to live by. I think ima go rent that tonight. Lol.

Default Re: Could Darrelle Revis actually shut down AJ?

With all the potential weaknesses of the Texans, it seems that the Jets will actually concentrate their efforts on shutting down AJ:

Quote:
As much as everyone is anticipating Mark Sanchez's and Rex Ryan's respective debuts, all eyes may end up glued to the pivotal matchup between Darrelle Revis and Andre Johnson, the Jets' All-Pro cornerback and the Texans' All-Pro wide receiver.

"He's very explosive and he's their go-to guy on offense," Revis said Friday at the Jets' practice facility in Florham Park, N.J. "There's a couple things you can do to stop him and contain him, and that's what we've been focusing on all week, getting after him."

It won't be an easy task, even for a lockdown corner who Texans coach Gary Kubiak said was "as good as there is in the league."

Johnson led the NFL with 115 receptions for 1,575 yards last season, becoming the first player to top the league in both categories since 2005. Over the past three seasons, he has been the most productive receiver in the NFL, averaging 87.1 yards per game. He begins the year with 486 receptions and is 621 yards shy of 7,000 for his career, and he has caught at least one pass in 50 straight games.

It's a streak that Revis, who will often be lined up against Johnson in one-on-one coverage at the edges of the field, has no visions of stopping.

"I can't say I'm going to shut this guy out. What we're going to try and do is keep it to a minimum and don't give up big plays," Revis said. "He may catch a five-yard hitch, he may catch a drag route, well, OK, whatever. What we don't want is him making big plays on us: 50-, 60-, 80-yard touchdowns. ... We're going to do our best to stop him and shut him down."

And by "we," Revis means more than just his teammates providing help in the secondary. The best coverage may come from the defensive line every time Houston quarterback Matt Schaub drops back to pass.

"We can definitely do something to help Revis out, and we're going to try the best we can to take a lot of the pressure off of him," defensive tackle Kris Jenkins said.

Jenkins, regrettably, won't be fixated on the marquee showdown. "I wish I had the opportunity to sit back and watch it," he said. "Unfortunately I don't, I have to work at the same time."
Revis' statement is somewhat contradictory, since holding AJ to 5 yard hitches would be the equivalent of shutting him down...........something that is extremely unlikely whether Schaub or Grossman are directing the missiles.

You do realize it was 7 seasons before the Jets finally had a winning season?

16 teams tried to shutdown AJ last season and well (115 receptions for 1,575 yards) They didnt fair to well.

IMO if your entire defensive gameplan is to stop AJ your going to get burned by OD, Kevin Walter and Slaton all game long.

If the Texans have their way with Gholston, the CBs are going to be quite occupied with worrying about the run........enough to compromise coverage.

That was more of us expecting Nnambi to coverhim alot, so we left Dre out of the game plan. Dumb move.

Andre did not get shut down at all.

Kubiak did not give him a chance to get shut down.
