I look forward to the day all this perceived improvement does result in tangible, measurable improvement in his production.

The Jets defense allows 4.4 yards per rush, for 23rd in the league this year.

However the Jets allow the QB to rush for 5.5 yards per carry. So on a designed running play, teams avg 4 yards per rush for 14th in the league. That's with 6 men in the box as the Jets primarily play nickel.

Fun Fact: When MCII plays over 77% of defensive snaps, the Jets are 3-0 this year.

So our defense is actually below average? 😱

Stats don't tell the whole story.  Only 5 teams have given up less touchdowns than the Jets.  The Jets are a bend but don't break defense, as is evidenced by the fact that they are #3 in the league in red zone defense.  And in crunch time, the defense consistently shows up in the 4th quarter, when they are most needed.  Again, as evidenced by the fact that the Jets gave up 0 points against the Eagles in the 2nd half.  Against the Chiefs, we were down 17-0, but only gave up 6 points for the entire game after that.

Overall, IMHO, I would rate the Jets as currently a top 10 defense in the league, despite what the stats say.  If the Jets can begin to really get off the field on 3rd downs, then I would move them to a top 5 defense, but we're not yet there.

You are just blind watching if you don't see it.... Sure they need to improve in red zone... But no turn overs no costly mistakes... He is not sailing any passes... His misses are very slight... He is making better decisions and as the offense stops having critical drops, bad play calls, dumb sacks, and terrible penalties a lot will change... It's a matter of gelling into a new system that they are improving each week. 

Don't be hyperbolic... You know it's a lot better than last year if you are honest with yourself.

I think they are easily one of the best defenses in the league, especially in the 2nd half. Hopefully they continue to tighten up.

It is all broken down on the site. This is not power rankings, it is all stats.

Yes, I've read the hundreds of posts making this "alot better than last year" massive improvement claim lately.

I'll repeat, I look forward to seeing all this eye-test improvement make an impact on tangible, measurable QB production statistics.  As noted elsewhere, so far all we have is an improved completion %.  Every other metric is the same or very close to his first two years.

Now, if even this mild desire is an unacceptable intolerable one according to you and your ilk, I don't know what to tell you.

Jets have played some potent offenses in the Bills, Cowboys, Chiefs, and Eagles. They were missing 3 of their top 4 cornerbacks and held the defending NFC Champion Eagles to 14 points. The Cowboys game skews their average. If you took that turd away, the Jets D has held their opponents to 16, 15, 23, 21, and 14 points. That's a decent defense right there. All the Jets offense needs to do is score 23 points per game and they're winning a lot of games.

I don't care about stats its all about Wins and making timely plays when needed. This defense is has been top notch in the 2nd half of games.

The Eagles WRs had some critical drops, I think these numbers would have not been the same,

Jets are more of a bend don't break offense.

The Jets offense hasn't been inept - that was definitely the case last year.  They're moving the ball and having sustained drives and surely have red zone issue.  Still not great but and probably bottom 3rd of the league, my guess is somewhere around 20ish in offense time of possession....Likely a minute or two off from some of the better team.

The Jets D is giving up a lot of long, time consuming drives early in games (and points.)    

But this D is still exceptional and closes like no other team I've ever seen.  I suspect if you did 2nd half Defense - the Jet would be #1 without a close second. 

Jets are #27 in time of possession. Defense is out there A LOT.

What about a little bit of luck?

The Eagles WRs truly messed up as well with some very easy catches that were dropped. 

Luck my friend is a stat that is not included.
