From Dawg Pound to lead dog: Gregg Williams gives Jets attitude

williams.6.jpg?quality=90&strip=all&w=61

 

When the season ended, New York Jets safety Jamal Adams stood in front of his locker and shared his unvarnished take on why his team finished 4-12. He said they "need more players and we need more dogs," a comment that didn't sit well with some teammates and drew the attention of management and ownership.

Maybe the star safety's words resonated. Less than three weeks later, the Jets are adding some bite to their defense. They're close to finalizing a deal with former Cleveland Browns interim head coach Gregg Williams, a Dawg Pound castoff who will bring the tenacity that Adams covets.

Expect an instant attitude change on defense. The bombastic Williams, 60, preaches a play-on-the-edge mentality, and he does it with an in-your-face style that will motivate some and chafe others. He's a walking F-bomb (did you see the "Hard Knocks" series last summer?) who will raise the swaggerlicious level on the Jets' defense, who did more hiding than seeking last season.

To paraphrase Adams, Williams is the coaching version of an alpha dog.

This is a bold hire for new coach Adam Gase, who indicated Monday that he needed a "head coach" for the defense because of his heavy involvement on the offensive side of the ball. In Williams, he landed a guy with more head-coaching offers than any coach over the past decade. Just ask him.

It's bold because Gase never has worked with Williams, who has the kind of big personality that could threaten an insecure head coach. Instead of hiring one of his coaching friends, Gase went for the best coach available, so give him credit for that. It'll be a fascinating marriage because we're talking about two headstrong coaches. Clearly, Williams still believes he can be a head coach -- he was 5-3 after replacing Hue Jackson in Cleveland -- so it'll be interesting to see how he adjusts to a secondary role under Gase, 20 years his junior.

If they can co-exist, this will be a good move for the Jets, who need an attitude adjustment after allowing 441 points, the second-most in franchise history.

Williams prefers an attacking 4-3 scheme, although he probably won't call it that. He will call it a "Jets defense," saying he will tailor his scheme around the personnel. If he does install a 4-3 base, it will be a radical change for the Jets, who haven't been a 4-3 team since Herm Edwards' final season in 2005. Todd Bowles ran a hybrid defense, mixing 3-4 and 4-3 fronts, but he preferred 3-4-type players -- 300-pound linemen and outside linebackers with pass-rushing skills. It was a power scheme. Now they could be switching to a speed scheme.

The 4-3 requires speed at linebacker, plus freakishly athletic defensive ends who can rush upfield and play the run. This will be a problem for the Jets, who don't have anyone who fits that profile. Outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins (6-foot-3, 259 pounds) could possibly become a defensive end, a position he played in college. With the third pick in the draft, they will have their choice of quality defensive ends.

The big winners in a 4-3 would be Adams, who would continue as a havoc-wreaking box safety; Darron Lee, who is miscast as a 3-4 inside linebacker; and Leonard Williams, who would get favorable matchups as a 4-3 tackle. The losers in a scheme change would be free agent Henry Anderson, who had a career year in Bowles' scheme, and Avery Williamson, who doesn't have the speed to be a "Mike" linebacker in a 4-3.

 

It'll be up to general manager Mike Maccagnan to find the right players for the scheme, which can be tricky. He doesn't see it as a problem, saying, "I think we have enough pieces that are interchangeable. I think we have some pieces in place that could fit different schemes."

Funny thing about Williams is, his Cleveland defense last season was in the same ballpark as that of the Jets -- and he had two Pro Bowl players in defensive end Myles Garrett and cornerback Denzel Ward. The Browns and Jets were close in most of the major statistical categories, and they were tied in accepted penalties (45). In the final five minutes of the fourth quarter, the Browns allowed 56 points, slightly better than the Jets (67), who were known for their late-game implosions.

We could crunch numbers all day, but the bottom line is this: Williams will make the Jets better on defense. He will give them an identity. In Gase and Williams, they have their most experienced head coach-top coordinator tandem in several years.

I'm all about this choice, but with that said, if you cannot find a role for Anderson, who was an absolute stud this year, i'm going to be pretty bummed.

Also have to feel him, its pretty much every other year that a team changed schemes and was left in the cold.

Anderson is a free agent.....so it isn't exactly all up to the Jets.

Our defense has long needed a kick in the ass. This guy not only can provide that but he seems to be a smart guy with it.

About the best outcome I can think of on D.

Once again the Jets are the #1 choice for a highly sought after coaching candidate.  Guess it's not as bad of a destination as a few jaded fans think.

 

It's a green thing.

Jets hire Redskins target Gregg Williams to serve as team’s defensive coordinator

 
by Jacob Camenker 23 hours ago

The New York Jets have hired Gregg Williams as their new defensive coordinator. Here’s what that means for the Redskins.

The impossible didn’t happen. Well, I guess the better way to put it is that the improbable didn’t happen. After agreeing to join the Jets’ staff, Gregg Williams ended up mulling his decision. He thought about going to the franchise that once considered hiring him as the head coach but spurned him instead for Jim Zorn. That franchise was the Redskins.

However, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Williams — once again — agreed to join the Jets. The Redskins missed out on him, and now they are stuck in an awkward situation with Greg Manusky still on the team.

It’s easy to see why Williams was a top target. He would have come to the Redskins with a great deal of experience. Additionally, he has four years of experience with the franchise, having served as their defensive coordinator from 2004-2007. During that time, he led the team to three top-10 defenses in terms of yards allowed and three top-11 scoring defenses as well.

However, since that time, success has been fleeting for Williams. He was able to log just one top-10 overall defense in 2011 with the Saints. Additionally, he was banned from the league for some time due to his involvement with the Bountygate scandal. In recent years, Williams has led middle-of-the-pack to below-average defenses with the Rams and the Browns. So, maybe missing out on him wasn’t the worst thing that could have happened.

Williams was targeted by the Redskins to serve as a motivator. He always gets his defense to play hard and aggressive, and that’s what the Redskins were looking for. With the solid, young talent the team has in the front seven, they have a good chance to get a lot of heat on opposing quarterbacks, and Williams would have helped with that. Williams’ recent track record may not look great, but he is the type of guy that could spark a fire under his players and really get this defense to reach their full potential. But now, he will do that for the Jets.

In the wake of this decision, there are still a couple of major concerns for the Redskins. The first is the way that the ‘Skins treated Manusky. The incumbent defensive coordinator remained on the staff for the first couple weeks of the offseason before almost being unceremoniously replaced. The fact that the team essentially held him hostage wasn’t a great move on their part, and at the very least, they should have better communicated what they were doing. Instead, they have now created an uncomfortable situation should Manusky return for another season.

Regular season totals, through Week 17

Revised as of 12/31/2018

This page lists DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average) for total defense as well as rushing and passing defense separated. The DVOA system is explained here. All numbers below are adjusted to an average schedule of opponents and an average percentage of fumbles recovered by the defense. The exceptions are the three columns marked NON-ADJUSTED. Rushing includes all rushing, not just running backs.

LAST YEAR represents 2017 rank. WEIGHTED DEFENSE is adjusted so that earlier games in the season become gradually less important. It better reflects how the team was playing at the end of the season.

VARIANCE measures the statistical variance of the team's weekly DVOA performance. Teams are ranked from most consistent (#1, lowest variance) to least consistent (#32, highest variance). SCHEDULE represents the average offensive DVOA of all opponents, with teams ranked from hardest schedule to easiest schedule.

Remember, since positive numbers represent more scoring, defense is better when it is NEGATIVE.

2018 DEFENSE vs. TYPES OF RECEIVERS

Regular season totals, through Week 17

Revised as of 12/31/2018

DVOA ratings represent value from the point of view of the defense, not fantasy football players, and include items that have no impact on fantasy football (such as how many interceptions are caught on passes intended to certain receivers). DVOA of defense against receivers does not include sacks or passes with no intended receiver listed. Passes per game and yards per game are more useful for fantasy football players. These numbers are adjusted based on the opposing offenses and include defensive pass interference.

Note that our decision of which receiver is 'number one' and which receiver is 'number two' is somewhat subjective. Teams are ranked in order of general passing defense DVOA.

Numbers in red represent NFL averages for the season.
