McLendon just became my favorite Jet. Nice that we have veteran leadership on the team. A guy like Osemele is probably doing similar things on the offensive side.
Sounds like we have a great lockeroom. 


Mclendon was amazing. What a perfect vet for big baby to look up to.

under new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and his more assertive style (both in terms of coaching style and scheme), the Jets should expect better results in 2019.

“It’s a lot different than what we were doing last year,” defensive end Henry Anderson said of Williams’ scheme, compared to Bowles’. “It’s just a lot more aggressive, attacking front. I know as a defensive line, some of the guys who were here last year, we’re kind of having to get rid of some of the habits that we developed in that old scheme. Just getting weight going more forward, attacking, penetrating. It’s definitely a fun defense to play in.”

Williams is currently installing his system during organized team activities practices. And Anderson, who tied for the team lead with a career-best seven sacks last year, likes what he sees so far, after he thrived in Bowles’ “more laidback” approach for the front last year.

Bowles had his defensive front players do more “reading” of an offensive lineman’s stance — and what technique the lineman used coming out of that stance, after the snap — than what Williams will require. With Williams, it’s more of an attack-and-go approach.

“Footwork is one of the big things,” Anderson said of the new technique habits he must develop in Williams’ defense. “Our stance is a little bit different, because last year we were kind of reading the offense — as opposed to now we’re just kind of going and not really reading as much on what the offensive line is doing.”

Anderson thinks Williams’ approach could lead to more sacks.

“Just getting up the field, penetrating, I think it’s going to open up holes up front," Anderson said. "I think getting into the backfield is going to wreak havoc a little bit more, and hopefully that will lead to some more sacks.”

Anderson is entering Year 5 in the NFL and has 10 career sacks and 32 quarterback hits. Seven of his sacks and 16 of his quarterback hits came last season, after which the Jets rewarded him with a three-year, $25.2 million contract that is really a two-year, $17 million deal, in terms of guaranteed money. Williams will be depending on Anderson to earn that money in 2019.

The items you highlighted reflect the difference between the traditional 3-4 (Parcells' type) vs the Wade Philips 1-gap attacking version. That's why people shouldn't be concerned about G. Williams' being a 4-3 guy and our personnel not matching up with his past schemes. Sounds like this coaching staff is  willing to adjust their schemes to the strengths of the personnel we have and develop hybrid systems

Funny how the article in this thread

talks about Bowles' "attacking 3-4" and how much he stunted and blitzed yet Williams and Anderson said in these interviews that the old 3-4 was more "read and react" and Anderson went so far as to say they were probably in a 4 man front a majority of the time last year and yet they were also in the bottom 1/2 of the league in sacks.

Leo did a good job of remaining political not to throw Bowles and Rodgers under the bus, but you can clearly see that he is excited to have the new Regime.  The press even noticed the practice environment is like night and day different than the Bowles years. This is only OTA's but it's really great to hear that they are setting a more aggressive and intense tone from square one.  It just may be a fun year. 

Thanks for posting @KRL
