Week Seven Jets Defensive Snap Count Analysis

Mike O’Connor brings you his detailed charting of the Jets defenses’ snap counts in Week Seven and previews week eight

Just like last week, I spent way too much time in front of the computer notching detailed snap counts from the New York Jets wonderful win versus the Patriots on Sunday. But hey, the statistics are informative to all and I enjoy being in the know. Here they are for this week (on the second sheet of the document). I do a lot of work to gather them, so I’d not only recommend it but highly appreciate it if you checked them out before reading these observations. Now, let’s see what was up in the always entertaining Rex Ryan defense this week.

Remember – Any questions about things on the chart or just overall comments on how to improve the charts will be answered and acknowledged.

TOJ – New York Jets Tight End Grade Sheet (Week 7)

Every week Cole Patterson will break down the performance of the New York Jets tight ends. Here is his take on week seven. 

Grading Scale: Tight end is an interesting position to grade out, given that they are responsible for both receiving and blocking. As receivers in the West Coast Offense, tight ends will be asked to line up anywhere from slot, to split end, to flanker and be responsible for the entire route tree. As blockers in the offense, they will be assigned delayed releases, one-on-one blocks, or simply to chip a pass rusher. With these roles in mind, it is difficult to create a complex grading scale based on YPC or blocking, as the play may conclude before the tight end’s true role on the play is clear. All of that is to say, because the tight end position is so enigmatic (particularly in a WCO) a simple letter based grading scale is best employed. 

  • A = Entirely positive impact
  • B = Consistent positive impact, few minor mistakes
  • C = Equal level of positive and negative impact, average, or made no impact plays whatsoever
  • D = Mostly negative impact, with room for improvement
  • F = Entirely negative impact

Initial Reaction – Finally! New York Jets Get Overdue Win Against Pats

Initial reaction to the New York Jets 30-27 overtime win over the New England Patriots

The New York Jets had a classic first half against the New England Patriots. Offensively, they turned the football over which directly led to Patriots points. Defensively, they looked unprepared for the hurry up offense. Penalties. Poor special teams. 21-10 New England at the half. It felt like the Jets were on their way to yet another frustrating loss to New England, along with further burial in the AFC East standings.

Turn On The Jets 12 Pack, Week 7 Edition

The Turn On The Jets 12 Pack with predictions for New York Jets vs. New England Patriots in week 7

You’ll have to excuse my skepticism about the New York Jets chances this Sunday. No Vince Wilfork. No Jerod Mayo. No Aqib Talib. No Danny Amendola. No Shane Vereen. And on and on. I’ve seen this movie before. 2008? No Brady…Jets still lost at home. Back in week 2? Pats were all sorts of banged up…Jets still lost. I know we had the good times (and the bad times) in 2009 and 2010 but the past five meetings have been ugly for the Jets against the Patriots.

Super Fast Friday – Jets/Pats Week, Round 2

Dan Marcus goes Super Fast Friday to preview Jets/Pats

After what was a somewhat expected and hum-drum “trap game” against the Steelers following a short-week in which they pulled out a thrilling Monday Night victory on the road against the Falcons, the Jets dust themselves off as they prepare to take on the very banged up New England Patriots for the final time this regular season. Despite the fact that, in the most predictable fashion, Rob Gronkowski is set to make his season debut, the Patriots have suffered a rash of injuries to key players recently that make it feel as though the stars are aligning once again for the Jets but we can get into that later but for now, here’s what you need to know

New York Jets – The Coples Conundrum

Frank Giasone on the struggles of New York Jets defensive lineman/outside linebacker Quinton Coples

There have been a lot of questions and concerns surrounding New York Jets OLB/DE Quinton Coples this season, as expectations for a breakout second year have been tempered following a slow start for the former first round pick out of UNC.

The last time we saw the “real” Quinton Coples, he was manhandling Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert in the preseason, forcing a fumble as he threw the quarterback to the MetLife turf. That was the same play, in fact, where we saw Coples go down with a hairline fracture in his ankle.

I’d be kidding myself if I said I had a definitive answer to what has sent Coples seemingly into the Witness Protection Program. Truth is, this early season “slump” is likely a combination of a number of factors. But I wanted to take a closer look to try and pinpoint what issues specifically are contributing to a complete lack of production.

New York Jets Defensive Snap Count – Analysis and Previewing Week 7

Mike O’Connor breaks down the New York Jets defensive snap counts and alignments to help preview week 7

Due to Rex Ryan’s complicated defensive schemes that sometimes put players in positions they’re not fully accustomed to, I decided to also note where New York Jets players were lining up, along with tallying their snap count.  For example, I notched down what “techniques” defensive lineman were lined up in, if safeties were playing on the deeper level or in the front seven’s box, and whether corners took snaps covering the outside or the slot.

Here is the link to the snap counts. Some things to note.
