Also at 5'9, Lankster and Welker have similar builds. The young corner has had to step up and play a large role since the loss of Darrelle Revis, and he has seen his ups and downs. He has been good at times, but then at times just gets flat out beat. The last time the jets faced New England, they had Issiah Trufant on Welker most of the game. Trufant did good, as Welker only had 66 yards receiving, but Trufant is now on IR. Right now, the Jets cannot trust Lankster one on one with Wes.
In order to slow down Welker, the Jets must double. with the injury to Gronkowski and Hernandez going to be limited, it gives the Jets a chance to focus more on Welker. If I were the jets, I would have Landry help on Welker. he is physical and can make plays. cromartie should not guard wes and should just shut down Brandon lloyd. LLoyd has had a great year, but only had 1 catch against the jets in week seven.
What the jets really do with Welker will be fasinating
