Barack Obama is a socialist.

so far it looks like he has been all 3 in the 3-4.

Jenkins is our most important pick-up because he plays the most important position on our defense. He controls the center of the field on both the D-line and the linebackers. Him being great at what he does allows the linebackers to scheme and disguise their linebacker rushing. He's getting the opportunity to get a lot of one on one battles given that the o-line will have to pay more attention to the linebackers to make sure that they don't rush up the gut. And with him plugging the middle with his strength he'll be able to get 2 guys on him which will begin to develop lanes for the linebackers to up up into the back field. Oh, and also, he's only like 28-29. We can get 4-5 very solid years out of him barring injury. Could you imagine how developed and dominating line backers like David Harris is going to turn into? Not only that, but when the Jets realize that they need to put Vernon Gholston back on the Defensive line where he's actually good at then you'll see this Jet defense getting to the top 5 defenses in this league....all starting with Kris Jenkins.

To further at to the point of a great defense, just look at the Jet Giant game last week. The Jets recorded like 9sacks in this game from the 1st 2nd and 3rd string Defense. Whats does this tell you??? That Eric Mangini maybe is a damn Genius. He's able to record play after play with virtually any team on the field. That relates directly to a damn good defensive playbook. So imagine what a Great defensive book we have. This means that if we do have an injury come about with a player and easily fill that hole with a 2nd or 3rd string yet lose little or no defensive strength on the field as long as that player does his job.

This is exactly how the Patriots did it during their run. Go back to when the Patriots won their first Super Bowl, a lot of those defensive players weren't household names. This defense is designed to make you a better defense as long as players played their role.

Faneca

I'd agree and although Faneca is much more of an upgrade, NT is a much more important position to this team than LG. Quality 3-4 NT's are very hard to come by and although Jenkins has yet to prove that he is one, he sure as Hell looks like one.

Personally, I think he will be great for this teams chances.

Thomas is a decent pass rusher

No he's not. He's mr invisible on the field. I swear in most games I wouldn't know he was playing. He was woeful last season and it pisses me off that Gholston was unable to claim the starting job from him. I'm hoping he is not the guy at OLB for too long.

Gee, I wonder why there are so many posts in here. :-k

I like Jenkins. I was psyched when he made that play in the backfield against the Giants. I was disspointed that it apparently happened only because the Giants elected to slant down and left Jenkins to be blocked by Hedge****. I think Jenkins will be a big help, but probably won't have much in the way of stats.

As for Thomas, I never liked him, but I'm not surprised Gholston isn't taking his job. Gholston looks like he's going to take some time. From what I've seen it looks like AEC was right to be concerned about the switch to OLB.

Murrell looks like the best natural pass rusher on the team right now, IMO.

Good way to phrase it. I've been lucky enough to have seen both the Jets 1st 2 games. I've been VERY impressed with Jenkins penetration . The man'd very disruptive to say the least. That's something we have sorely missed the last few years.

Ah geez, I wish I had a grudge against you (I don't) That was just to good to pass up

I think they pull him on passing downs and I would not do that. He collapses the pocket and is an excellent pass rusher. Getting the center of the line to back in on the QB is extremely effective. And again, one man cannot hold him off.

I agree, but they have to rest him on 30% or more of the plays. Both Pouha, and once in awhile Mosley, have been doing a decent job, but they are just not as domineering as Jenkins can be.

He's a very big, quick man. To get the top level of play out of him, he needs to be fresh. This guy may be our best defensive player right now. Got to get 100% out of him. Sadly that means letting him sit sometimes.

In all honesty he should get more than 30% of the plays off. He should be relegated to a first and second down player which would mean he'd be getting about 34 percent of the plays off. I know that doesn't sound like much but over the course of the season it means alot.

On a side note I found this hilarious spoof of PTI I thought yall would enjoy
