ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:43 PM) for f***ing us in the ass without lube
FlyHiJets Icon : (Today, 06:44 PM) game over
bleedsgreen Icon : (Today, 06:44 PM) Unfucking believable
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:45 PM) I can't wait to hear this post-game presser by Rex
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:45 PM) I hope he rips Marty a new asshole
Jetsman05 Icon : (Today, 06:45 PM) yeah cause Rex has perfectly coached many a games
canuckfan Icon : (Today, 06:45 PM) morningwheeg what an idiot....hope re4x throws him under the bus during the presser
Jetsman05 Icon : (Today, 06:45 PM) you want the NFL to say sorry and you want Morningwig canned. You're a clown
bleedsgreen Icon : (Today, 06:45 PM) Gotta give credit to greenbay. That's a good football team
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 06:46 PM) f*** an apology. It's not going to change anything in the standings which is what matters at the end of the season.
FlyHiJets Icon : (Today, 06:46 PM) definitely reminds me of AFC Championship in Denver
canuckfan Icon : (Today, 06:46 PM) marty ranks up there with bittfumble
canuckfan Icon : (Today, 06:47 PM) buttfumble
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 06:47 PM) The should have made sure he knew who was calling the time out. Hell Rex was on his right and Marty was on his left.
mgjetman Icon : (Today, 06:47 PM) Getting lazy with a minute 50 on the clock before half was the nail in the coffin.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 06:48 PM) The ref
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 06:49 PM) There is plenty of blame to spread around. No team should lose a 17 point lead anyway.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:50 PM) DUDS - Miliner and Marty
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:50 PM) BRUTAL LOSS
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 06:52 PM) I really don't blame Marty because it's the refs job to make sure he sees who is calling the timeout. Plus the ball had already been snapped before he even noticed somebody was calling a TO.
mgjetman Icon : (Today, 06:53 PM) Just gave that game away. WTH!!!
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 06:54 PM) He didn't even blow the whistle until Geno already had dropped back to pass. The play was already well underway.
bleedsgreen Icon : (Today, 07:03 PM) I heard it when the ball was already in the air
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:05 PM) but it shouldn't of come down to that TO blunder
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:05 PM) we did give up a 18 point lead
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:05 PM) so we fucked up and lost
bleedsgreen Icon : (Today, 07:05 PM) True
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:05 PM) time to get ready for MNF
santana Icon : (Today, 07:09 PM) Well it sucks when you start to feel the jets are going to lose the game them selves
santana Icon : (Today, 07:09 PM) the Vick play worthless
santana Icon : (Today, 07:09 PM) that run on 3rd and 5 worthless
santana Icon : (Today, 07:09 PM) chris Johnson also I don't know what his numbers were but ivory seemed to be a better back
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:13 PM) Marty just picks the worse time to call those wildcat plays
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:13 PM) they are drive killers
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:27 PM) Problem is the corners. We knew this before the start of the season. I was amazed at how well they did last week and the first half but eventually the weakness showed
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:28 PM) The corner positions will be addressed next year. Technically we are still in a rebuilding phase.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:39 PM) we did go toe to toe against a SB contender and we really shouldn't be heartbroken but if you call yourself a JETS fan and aren't a little pissed over a W that we had in our control then you need to go and hand in your JETS gear ... I'm looking at you 115
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 08:24 PM) 18 penalties in 2 games
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 08:25 PM) unacceptable
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 08:27 PM) Geno dropped from #1 to #28 in TOTAL QBR
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 09:10 PM) Cutler just got popped right in the chest
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 09:11 PM) that was a squared up right in the middle of the chest hit
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 09:13 PM) nice one handed catch by Marshall
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 10:06 PM) NFL rules state that only the head coach can call a timeout on the sidelines…

Except in Green Bay where anybody up to the third row can call a timeout.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 10:06 PM) I love NFL memes

I believe schemes have a shelf life, they are only superior as long as everyone else isn't doing it. Two things happen when the majority of the league starts running a particular scheme:

1 - Teams learn how to prepare and game plan for the scheme, and they play against it more often so they learn how to combat it better.

2 - More teams are drafting/signing the players required for that system, making getting those players much more difficult.


Before the 3-4 became so popular, tweeners had no home in the NFL. They were too big and unathletic for OLBs, and too small to hold up as DEs. Along comes the 3-4 and now these are highly sought after elite difference makers. Early 3-4 teams were picking up these difference makers late in the draft or even undrafted.

Problem is, now everyone wants the players. 3-4 teams want tweeners and oversized NTs who can't rush the passer but demand double teams. We've seen these previously poorly regarded NTs be drafted higher and higher every year.

Dontari Poe was drafted 11th overall last year simply because he was big and strong. Despite his lack of solid tape and production, teams just need these players so they start reaching.

But, with the 3-4 become more popular...4-3 players become less sought after. Would the Jets be wise to move to a more base 4-3?

They already seem to have more 4-3 pieces than 3-4 with the current roster cuts. Bart Scott and Calvin Pace were 3-4 players, and they're now gone. The team doesn't even have a starting caliber 3-4 OLB on the roster. Take a look at some of their front 7 players below:

Muhammad Wilkerson - DE/DT
Quinton Coples - DE
Sione Pouha - NT
Kenrick Ellis - NT
Damon Harrison - NT

David Harris - MLB/ILB
Demario Davis - OLB/ILB


Quinton Coples, Demario Davis, and David Harris are arguably better or at least of equal value in a 4-3. Pouha, Ellis, and Harrison are more strictly 3-4 players...and Wilkerson is probably more suited for a 3-4, though I imagine he is good enough to succeed in either scheme.

Would it be easier to find a staring OLB and pass rushing DE for the 4-3? Or two blue chip, elite 3-4 OLB pass rushers? Also, is Coples ceiling higher in a 4-3 than Wilkerson's in a 3-4?

3-4 Lineup

? - Davis - Harris - ?

Coples - Pouha/Ellis - Wilkerson


4-3 Lineup

Davis - Harris - ?

Coples - Pouha - Wilkerson/Ellis - Wilkerson/?

The Jets rarely run a strict 3-4 defense, they play multiple fronts and use a lot of 4 down lines. they play everything, so they can take players and they will play them to their strengths. every team runs a spread in our division, so the Jets play even less 3-4 in those games.
