It's way too early in the season for Jets fans to sound the alarm, but there weren't many positives in last week's 27-10 loss in Pittsburgh. Next is another adventure on the road against the Dolphins, who looked surprisingly good in a 35-13 victory over the Raiders last week. Here's a look ahead at Sunday's matchup.
Return of Revis?
Darrelle Revis was cleared for contact Thursday and vows to play, but Rex Ryan wasn't as definitive on his star cornerback's status. If No. 24 has it his way and is close to 100%, Dolphins rookie QB Ryan Tannehill will be in a heap of trouble. He tossed three picks against the impressive Texans defense in Week 1. That has to have Revis and CB Antonio Cromartie salivating.
Watch that Wildcat
Opinions seem to fluctuate week-to-week when it comes to how to use Tim Tebow's specialty offense. (Ryan has gotten flustered when given "advice" about this at news conferences, so maybe he should stop reading here.) Currently, calls are for more Tebow-centric plays, but Miami might be one of the worst teams to use the set against. After all, Jets offensive coordinator Tony Sparano lit the fuse on the NFL Wildcat craze a few years ago as the Dolphins' head coach.
Reggie Bush's NFL career has been uneven, but his performance against Oakland last week was one of his peak peformances. With 197 yards from scrimmage and a pair of breakaway TD runs, Bush might finally be putting it all together. Whether he is or not, the Jets will have to treat him with respect. While Gang Green fared better stuffing the run in Week 2 than the season opener, Bush is playing at a higher level than the Steelers' reserves.
