Mike McDaniel and Robert Saleh know each other quite well from their time in San Francisco. McDaniel needs to use that to his advantage.
I feel like this is going to be like when the Undertaker finally decided he was going to fight his brother Kane and they both knew each other’s moves and both did each other’s moves. Hopefully, Mike McDaniel is more like the deadman, the Undertaker, and didn’t show Saleh everything he could do.
These guys went up against each other all the time in practice so each sort have a starting point of where to attack. It’s going to be who can make the most sound adjustments and use the other’s brain and memory against them. I give the advantage to McDaniel not just because I perceive him to be craftier but because he has Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.
The Jets are tied for 19th in the league in sacks but are 12th in passing yards allowed. It’s year three for Saleh so his defense, which is his specialty, should be at least at this level. The Jets are playing better team defense and McDaniel needs to be able to move the ball with Bridgewater.
Now Bridgewater isn’t Tua meaning he can’t make the same types of throws Tua makes. Tua is great at feathering balls over linebackers and between safeties. Teddy doesn’t have that type of anticipation. Instead, Teddy has more velocity in his arm(foreshadowing) and can make rangier-type throws. I would expect a few more vertical throws dialed up with Teddy in there.
