Jets 'scheming' for Sunday

It seems strange the Jets would be so forthcoming re their offensive game plan for Sunday (see  Against Steelers, Jets looking for backs to play catch‎ - The Star-Ledger - NJ.com). The strategy makes sense, considering their weapons, but I suspect it's a smoke screen.

After Baltimore torched us twice with the long ball two weeks ago, you have to figure Santonio Homes is salivating over the thought of burning us for multiple big ones...and he probably has Ryan & Sanchez convinced he can do it.

Considering the recent anemic point production of our offense (plus it's mid-Dec. in Pittsburgh), Santonio et.al., probably figure twenty points should win this game. This means if Sanchez can dink & dunk his way to a couple field goals and draw us in, Santonio hopes to bask in the limelight by blowing past our drawn-up secondary for a long ball, then (when Ike restores the cushion) by scoring on a long catch & run after eluding a tackle, i.e., vintage highlights from Holmes.

I figure this game is really on the offense--they need to run the ball, control the clock, maintain field position superiority, and force the Jets to play catch-up. Anything over 20 should win this game. Thoughts?
