Paul Hackett had one word to describe the team's red zone offense - "Agony". Hackett also had another description of the red zone attack - "We are the kings of the field goals."
Hackett is going to attempt to get Curtis Martin more carries this week. "The blend of the run and the pass is hurting us," said Hackett. "We need to run more."
Hackett intends on giving Martin more opportunities in the red zone . . .
One thing Vinny Testaverde needs to do better is lead his receivers. An essential part of the West Coast system is accurate passing that allows the wideouts to run after the catch.
"The ability to complete short passes and have the player run is what we are looking to do," said Hackett . . .
The Patriots had a number of plays where they had nine guys in the box to stopped the run. They were daring Testaverde to beat them through the air . . .
The Jets offensive line has done a great job in pass protection, allowing just two sacks in three games. However the coaches feel that if they don't start running the ball, it's going to become tougher to pass protect because teams are going to pin their ears back and attack Testaverde . . .
Michael Bates hurt his knee against New England, but should be able to play against Dallas. Dan Stryzinski hurt his ribs when he was leveled by Larry Izzo, but should be able to do this week this week as well. . .
Jason Glenn was hobbling around the locker room on Monday, and is questionable for New England with a sprained ankle . . .
New England's usually ineffective running game ran successfully against the Jets. They ran a lot of sweeps to take advantage of the Jet lack of defensive speed . . .
The Jets feel the main focus of the Patriots secondary was not letting Santana Moss beat them. He was by far given the most attention . . .
Wayne Chrebet played a limited role against New England because of a knee injury . . .
Dewayne Robertson played his best game as a Jet in New England with five tackles. He is slowly, but surely making progress . . .
While Curtis Martin only ran for 53 yards, the Jets running game did show some improvement against New England. They had only one negative play. Martin had 17 carries and Edwards is going to try to get him over 20 against Dallas. The Cowboys are a good team to get a running game going because they aren't particularly strong on their defensive line . . .
