Can the New York Jets Contain Torrey Smith?

Fresh off a breakout performance against the Rams last week, the Jets are going to have to account for Ravens rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith.

Gang Green Nation ponders
whether the Jets match up better against Smith than the Rams did.

Despite his penalty problems last week, Antonio Cromartie’s specialty is using his ungodly athleticism to cover guys down the field. While his game leaves plenty of room for criticism, he is usually pretty solid there. If he cannot go, the Jets have a pretty good alternative in Kyle Wilson. The rookie who looked lost in his first NFL game against Baltimore is long gone. It is difficult to think of one time he has been beaten in the first three weeks. His game is pretty well suited to play Smith. Wilson is good at being physical at the line to prevent a clean release and has been timed in the low to mid 4.3’s in the 40 yard dash.

Smith, a rookie from Maryland, went for 5 catches, 152 yards, and 3 touchdowns last week.
