What makes Stevie so tough to deal with? Dan Leberfeld
While the Jets defense has been pretty good in the first two games, their cornerback play has been a little inconsistent.
But the Jets corners better bring their “A” game on Sunday with Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson coming to down.
“He is a great receiver,” Jets coach Rex Ryan said. “His style is unique, the way he gets off the line of scrimmage, off press coverage in particular. There are guys that are faster than him, but he gets open. He gets separation. And I think it starts with the way he is at the line of scrimmage. He’s a little different but he’s excellent at getting off press coverage in particular.
“(It’s) Just the way he moves. He’s kind of got a style all his own in the way he shakes. It’s just different. It really is. He’s physical. He’s good with his hands and he’s got good body control.
Johnson even gave former Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis problems.
“I think that’s a fair statement,” Ryan said. “And I think everybody, even the All-World guys, have a guy out there that they struggle with and I think he did as good a job as probably anybody against Revis.”
