    They do but Rypien doesn’t have the arm to make them pay for stacking the middle of the field. If Shurmur is truly a good OC he should realize that bubble/tunnel screens will have a better chance at breaking for big gains and will open up the inside for Rypien.

    Although I half expect the first play to be a max protection play action pass to Hamler or Jeudy on a double move to try and back them off. It’ll be interesting to see if Gregg Williams lines his S up 20-30 yards off the ball.

I wouldn't be suprised to see a win with Rypien putting together a quality game manager type performance. If we can lean on the run game, get Rypien in a rhythm with the short passing game, we could see a sneaky solid performance from our quarterback.

    Rypien has a better arm than Tebow.

    Certainly not happy about the circumstances, but glad that Brett will have his first start in a regular season NFL game. Hope he does well. It will be interesting.

    I liked Brissett a lot better than Driskel, it’s a shame that he had to transfer to NC State to get a real shot to prove himself.

    Vic said this in a presser. According to him it has been between Driskel and Rypien....Bortles is not even an option this week,

    You may be kidding but I will take a guy who struggles to pass but can handle the pass rush over a guy that has a great arm and freezes when he see the pass rush. This is double true for our team with its pass protection issues.

    Should they be looking at this and asking: why aren’t you starting Bortles?

    Starting Rypien almost seems like the Broncos think it would be unfair to start someone else against the Jets because the Jets wouldn’t stand a chance.
    I’m sure they might but I doubt Bortles knows enough of the playbook to play a full game. If he started they’d likely load up the box because it’d be a run heavy gameplan to counteract that.

    Unfortunately Rypien will likely see the same and since he doesn’t have the arm strength to do much down the field or outside the numbers it’ll probably be the best run defense the Jets play all season.

    At this point, if Rypien just dink and dunks for chunk plays that would be a better offensive showing than we’ve had the last couple of games. Quick reads, short passes. We have the weapons that can get open off the line. We can definitely win this game.
