After seeing Tebow basically run through the Jets defense, I believe the most powerful weapon the Bills have against the Jets is to put Brad Smith in a conventional formation—by that I mean not the wildcat—and using him in exactly the same way the Broncos are using Tebow
My dramatically oversimplified view, this is why it will work:
it clears out the backers with coverage requirements,
forces the d-line to commit to a pass rush,
that creates holes and creases.
Essentially, the Jets defense played their scheme, which against a QB like Tebow—and similarly I would hope Smith—amounts to overkill with regard to pass defense. The Bills have a weapon that exploits this apparent weakness the Broncos just exposed.
The key, as it was in this Thursday night game, is being a physical runner. I think Brad Smith passes the eyeball test there.
What do you think? Should the Bills lean on Brad Smith to solve the Jets D?
