Not true, just because you aren't that into the draft doesn't mean people who are are losers.
And I don't get the last comment because the Jets have had a top pass defense every year besides last year under Rex.
Obviously you aren't watching the same game I am or you are looking to much in to the overall yards. Yards given up in a game isn't a true gauge of a defense. The Jets Have been owned in the middle by qbs from 2011 on. The corners are doing their jobs but the safeties and back up corners in nickle and dime offense have not. Its not about the overall yards. Its more about the fact that the Jets have struggled constantly struggled to get off the field on 3rd down and 99% of the time it has been a passing completion somewhere in the middle of the field. The Jets have given up a lot of 3rd and longs for first downs in passing.
Here is proof what I'm talking about.
Jets passing defensive points given up rank
Since 2011 on the Jets have been pretty sh*tty as far as passing points given up. If you want to look at the overall total yards as a gauge of the Jets defense then by all means its your prerogative. To me that's fantasy land sh*t because overall yards means nothing.
Its no different from an offense being #1 in the league in yards but being near the bottom of the league in tds. In the end its about scoring not yards. As far as me I could give a rats a$$ if the Jets were last in the league in yards as long as they stopped the scoring. The corners have been doing their jobs pretty well so as I stated the middle is the issue. Being 20th,20th,and 19th the last three years in passing points given up is bad.
I dont know if the FO is doing the same thing and looking at the overall yards but I hope not. The middle of the field needs to be addressed. Three years being 20th in the league in passing points given up. The streak will continue to cost the Jets games until the Jets get better help in the middle of the field.
