Chaos Icon : (Today, 09:21 PM) wtf do they do in the locker room during the half?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 09:21 PM) this is over, if we had gotten that TD and were up 20-17 it may have been different. Rex keeps blitzing even though Cutler is shredding it
Chaos Icon : (Today, 09:22 PM) "we started poorly in the first. let's try that again in the third!"

Jets had NFL's fifth-youngest team in 2013

All that talk about the Jets being so young in 2013 after undergoing a roster purge upon the arrival of new general manager John Idzik? Now there's actual data to back it up.

Football Perspective analyzed the ages of NFL players for the third year in a row. The site found that the Jets, who were the league's 22nd-youngest team in 2011 (average age: 27.3) and its 25th-youngest in 2012 (average age: 28), were tied with the Chiefs for fifth-youngest in 2013 (average age: 26.5).

As Football Perspective explains in its post, it didn't just take the average age for every player on the 53-man roster. It also didn't just take the average age for every starter. So to measure the average age and contributions of each player, Football Perspective tied the ages to Pro Football Reference's Adjusted Value metric, which is a catch-all quantifier of an individual player's value to his team, since some positions can be more impactful than others.

"Ideally," Football Perspective says, "you want to calculate a teamís average age by placing greater weight on the teamís most relevant players."

The Rams (average age: 25.5) were the league's youngest team in 2013, while the Cardinals (average age: 28.3) were the oldest.

Of course, how young a team was didn't entirely indicate how bad they were. The Chiefs, whose average age was the same as the Jets', won 11 games and made the playoffs. Among teams younger than the Jets, the Rams (7-9), Browns (4-12), and Bucs (4-12) all were worse. But the second-youngest team in the NFL was the Super Bowl-champion Seahawks (average age: 26).

Check out Football Perspective's AV-adjusted analysis of every team's ageóincluding breakdowns of offense and defenseóhere.


Best part is, they're only going to get younger with the future cuts and multiple draft picks this year. They need to make sure they bring in the right guys.
