I wouldn't pay too much attention to this. We all know Demario Davis isn't going to be that far down on the depth chart. It's an unofficial, official depth chart. After the starters, everything is pretty much up in the air.

it's a huge sign of respect that eric smith is a 1st team safety. the Jets really do consider him a starter it would seem.

A lot of it is political right now. Making sure players like Davis, "earn it". No way will he be buried on the depth chart when the games start.

If you really look at this, it's pretty clear it's designed to give absolutely no information whatsoever on camp battles, etc. Across the board, every single returning starter from last year / free agent starter signing is listed at the top of the depth chart, with all of the rookies and low level FAs buried beneath them. The only real exception to that rule would be Hill at #2 WR, but even then that has more to do with the fact that there's nobody else they have any particular reason to fill in there. When you consider things like Coples being listed as a backup and listing 3 starting safeties (as all 3 qualify as returning starters or FA's signed to start), it tells you how little this all means.

So DeVito over Coples and apparently we're gonna start the season off with a 15 yd penalty for too many players on the field on D. We have to be the only team in the league with 12 listed starters, right?

I doubt anyone would complain. If I where an opposing coach I'd rather play us with 12 men on the field if one of them is Eric Smith then 11 without him

Jets need Maybin to take Pace's starting spot so Pace can take Thomas' spot.

I like your idea. might not happen right away, it could play itself out

I believe it's a 5 yard penalty, but maybe we can get away with it with these scab refs! Rex's master plan!!!

Also, I thought Austin Howard was kinda pushing Wayne Hunter....but he's listed third string?

Demario behind Mauga?? Seriously?

I wouldn't take it to mean anything. Outside of Hill, all of the rooks are buried on the depth chart behind any returning Jets.

Ah, the old 3-4-5!

Terrance Ganaway is going to be the 2nd FB.

I think Baker did it last year. I don't really think we should have a 2nd FB, but if we do I'd rather go blocker than draft pick. Remember when Caulcrick was going to be a FB?

Meh, base formation. We only ran 3-down about 50% the time the past few years, that's probably going to decrease starting this year. Coples really doesn't have any business being in there over DeVito in that instance anyways.

Yes. I'm sure we'll be seeing that 3-4 with 3 safeties-look often.

They love the 3 safeties. Last year I only wanted the 3rd safety on the field if he was the 12th man.

Yeah, but that was last year. We're so deep this year on the line that we're better off using the 12th spot for an extra defensive lineman. Like a 4-4-2-2. Could work. That would be a huge sign of respect to Eric Smith too. Like, he's so good that it takes a full extra player on the field to make up for what he brings.

If this happens, look out!!!

Though he'll probably look for a big pay day next season...

It would seem Matt Slauson fended off Vlad Ducasse in an epic battle of heavyweight talent. You go, Mr. Slauson. Better luck next year, Mr. Ducasse.

the Jets didn't release it this way by accident.

You're right, they quite intentionally released it so that every single starter from last year was listed as a starter at the beginning of the preseason. There's little more to take from it than that. After all, I have to imagine this depth chart hasn't drastically changed your view on the Slauson / Ducasse situation, has it?

Not impressed by back up right guards?

Unless Sanchez becomes a football player, subtracting Mangold out of that chart legitimately terrifies me. When your season rests on your center staying healthy, that's bad. Very, very bad.

That's the rub, isn't it? The Giants surrendered considerably more pressure than we did last year, but Eli's awesome, so they won the Super Bowl. Meanwhile we're stuck with a guy who wets his pants whenver anyone's within a yard of him, so we're forced to keep the OL constantly stocked with All-Pros or face 8-8 every year.

Eli wasnt always awesome. He's had a couple of 8-8 seasons.
