No one is talking about him.

While its too early to send him to the Hall of Fame he seems to be coming of age this season. The last two games he has had momentum changing plays. Two forced fumbles one going for a TD.

Good to see that finally one of the JETS higher picks are panning out.

He's part of the reason I had to laugh earlier this week when I saw so many people saying that Mangold was the only player on the team worth keeping. Despite their struggles, it's insane to suggest that Mangold is the only guy on the team worth keeping.

He has 2 sacks and 3 FF in 10 games.

That's probably why nobody is talking about him.....

Shaun ellis 2.0. Big games, decent games, games in which he disappears . Still I'll take an Ellis replacement if he can pass rush like the big cat used to. On a different note, kenrick is starting to look like dwayne Robertson 2.0. Bad knees and all.

Meh, he's proven to be capable of making an impact when healthy. I wouldn't make the D-Rob comparison yet.

No offense man but you can't judge a 3-4 d-lineman like that, it's like judging a baseball player on his batting average and RBI's alone. Sure we would like more sacks but you have to look at the bigger picture.***


***I will definitely take the 3 FF's per 10 games, though.

Possibly, but people wouldn't have been as annoyed with D Rob if he was a 3rd round pick like Kenrick was.

It's only his 2nd year. Same with Coples being a rookie. Both will be good and need time to develop and become more consistent.

You mean the part where he misses 3 games and 5 starts in his five years with the team? They are like twins.

The Jets have more than a few guys that are worth keeping, Wilkerson being one of them. But when you think about it Mangold and Revis are probably the ONLY players the Jets have who would start for a team like the 49ers.

All the metrics love Wilkerson and he's looked very good. But he's also been going against some really bad competition.

Wilkerson looks like he's developing. We're noticing him more and more. If he keeps it up, he's going to be a really valuable player. I wouldn't give up on him yet.

Seattle was bad competition at home ? Where there offense usually thrives ? That's news to me.

I do not know if we were ever close to giving up on him. He has been decent the first half of the season.

But the last two games he has made some BIG time impact plays.

He doesn't really disappear, he's just not a great pass rusher. PFF has him as the 2nd-best 3-4 DE in the league against the run (and he's a lot closer to #1 than he is to #3). He'd look even better if our LBs weren't complete sh*t.

I think Cromartie and Landry could start anywhere. The more I see of Cro, the more it seems like he's overcome his fear of contact, which I never thought we'd see. Keller is better than most starting TE's but not elite. There are others, but those are the most obvious to me.

Agree. I didn't necessarily mean here, but I have seen some "Wilkerson is a bust" whispers creeping up around the web, particularly in comments sections...admittedly, not much in the last two weeks. ;)

Pretty much the entire defense is solid except for the LB'ers. I guarantee this defense looks totally different with OLB's who can actually rush the passer or ILB's who can run sideline to sideline and cover.

Russell WIlson hads been sacked only 19 times the entire season. And he has got a 122 rating at home. That's weak ?

Keller is one of the most overrated players in the NFL. He's not top 20.

Those whispers started in Week 1 of last season. And oh BTW Coples is a bust too! :)
