Mike Nolan steps into the Film Room to grade out the 2012 Jets’ Offensive Line. First up is starting Left Tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson.
Before we get to the regular season, I wanted to take a look at 2012 film of the Jets’ Offensive Line to see what is returning this year and to see what the Jets have lost from 2012. During the regular season, I will be running a weekly column where I will grade out the offensive line’s individual performances. Unlike Pro Football Focus, I am going to grade the line from as much of a coach’s perspective as I can. By this, I mean I am going to take technique and assignment into account in addition to play result. For each play I give grades ranging from -2 to 2:

Dan Marcus on what New York Jets quarterback gives the team the best chance to win
With the Jets Quarterback “Competition” coming (hopefully) to an inevitable culmination sometime after Saturday’s preseason game against the Giants, the length of time it has taken to arrive at any type of decision has caused a stir among members of the media. The Daily News’ Manish Mehta went so far as to call the whole thing a “farce,” a charade orchestrated by John Idzik to make it seem as though his Second-round draft pick wasn’t merely being handed the job. With Manish, I really can never be sure if he’s operating on information from one of his infamous unnamed sources or if it’s merely conjecture. Thus far, to the objective observer, it seems as though Sanchez is the “leader in the clubhouse” to get the nod Week 1 but according to Mehta’s report, all Smith needs to do is play a couple quarters of mistake-free football and the job is his.
Call me skeptical but I just have a tough time believing this, considering that Smith has not showed much (if at all) to prove that he 1) deserves the job and 2) can handle the rigors associated with being a Rookie QB in the NFL. If you ask me, there are two questions that the Jets’ brass and fans alike need to ask themselves before deciding who they want under center Week One:

Cole Patterson on the developing chemistry of New York Jets quarterbacks and wide receivers
When talking about chemistry in football, one does not intend to conjure images of beakers, Bunsen burners, and covalent bonds. It is another kind of bond that is being addressed, the kind that is exemplified by the relationship between a quarterback and his favorite target. The New York Jets may have lucked out when drafting Geno Smith because of the rapid rapport that he seems to have developed with New York’s top targets.
