Frank Giasone grades out the New York Jets defensive line in week 17 and for the entire 2013 season
Sunday’s win over Miami in the 2013 season finale was a good one for Jets’ fans, players and coaches alike, as the offense put together one of its most impressive performances of the season, and the defense held the Dolphins to just seven points–a season best for New York.
And while the performance helped the Jets climb back to .500 in the final week of the season, the struggles up front persisted, as the production from the defensive line continued to deteriorate.

Hello New York Jets fans! After a somewhat surprising 8-8 season for Gang Green, the attention now shifts to the offseason. Armed with an expected 10-12 picks and $35+ million in cap space, the Jets figure to be active both in free agency and in the draft. With that said, It’s time to hand out the grades for 2014 for the New York Jets Running Backs. I’ll include Mike Goodson in the grades and will be subtracting Geno Smith’s rushing totals. I will also include a link to TOJ’s “Who Stays, Who Goes” so you can see what changes may be made to the Jets running backs core for 2014. It is a group that may remain unchanged for the most part, but you should familiarize yourself with some names in case John Idzik elects to upgrade the group. Let’s get to it.

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio breaks down the New York Jets Week 17 opponent, the Miami Dolphins, in this week’s version of “Know Your Opponent.”
The New York Jets, fresh off a win against the Cleveland Browns, take their modest talents to South Beach for a Week 17 matchup against the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins need a win against the Jets to keep their playoff hopes alive, and the Jets have a chance to return the favor from 2011 when it was the Dolphins that ended the Jets playoff hopes in Miami. Time to get to know your opponent for Week 17.

Frank Giasone grades out the Jets defensive line in week 16
Another week, another average performance from the Jets’ defensive line. Despite walking away with the comfortable win on Sunday, it’s become pretty clear that the strongest assets on the defense this season have started to dip in performance during the last month, as vulnerabilities in the pass rush and against the run have started to arise.
Whether it’s injury or fatigue, the defensive line has had some issues lately. The group set a high standard for itself throughout the season, but recently it’s looked a bit rundown. The Jets four most recent opponents have broken 100 yards rushing, and the defensive line has accumulated just two sacks in that time (both against Cleveland.)

Frank Giasone breaks down the tape on the Jets defensive line in week 16
After Sunday’s loss to Carolina, it’s starting to look like nagging injuries and fatigue in the front seven have begun taking their toll on the Jets’ defense. Pairing an anemic offense with a defense that struggles to force turnovers can have that effect, as we’ve seen this defense spend far too much time on the field through 15 weeks.

Take a look at the post game stats from Sunday’s win over Oakland and there’s one thing that will likely stand out–something Jets fans aren’t used to seeing.
For the first time this season, the Jets defense surrendered a 100-yard rusher, as Oakland running back, Marcel Reece, finished the day with 123 yards on the ground. Take a closer look at the stat sheet and you’ll see a Raiders’ rushing attack that averaged 5.8 yards per carry–a season high allowed by the Jets. Neither stat is exactly a ringing endorsement an elite run defense.
But sometimes, stats can be misleading. Continue reading “New York Jets Defensive Line Grade Sheet: Week 14”
The truth is, there weren’t many bright spots in Sunday’s drubbing at the hands of division rival Miami. Rex Ryan’s team struggled once again to produce even a semblance of an NFL offense. While the majority of the blame for this one has to be deflected to arguably the most anemic offense in football, the defense also played a role, continuing to prove that it’s far from the “elite” level we have all come to expect.
