Three Jets secret weapons

The Jets game plan should be superb today, thanks in part to three gentlemen.

The Jets have three guys, two players and one coach, who were part of the Cowboy organization, and were very helpful this week aiding the team's preparation.

Let's start with Jets secondary coach Mike McIntyre, who held the same position with the Cowboys last year. He's been a huge help to Kellen Clemens. McIntyre knows the weaknesses of the Cowboys defensive backs, and was able to relay that to Clemens.

The same can be said for Jets starting safety Abram Elam. He played in the Cowboys secondary last year, and has a lot of close friends in that unit. He actually backed up safety Roy Williams last year, so he knows that player very well.

It's no secret that Williams struggles in pass coverage, and McInyre and Elam were able to give the Jets players and coaches insights into what gives Williams problems.

Also, Elam faced Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and his receivers every day in practice, so he can be a great help to his fellow defenders in dealing with the redhot signal-caller.

The third person who helped a great deal this week was defensive end Kenyon Coleman, who spent the last three seasons playing in Dallas. He knows a great deal about the Cowboys offensive line, and his insight will help out the Jets Front Seven quite a bit.

So if the Jets pull the upset on Thanksgiving, the inside information of these three guys will have a lot to do with it.
