    Organized Chaos: how Rex Ryan describes his front-4 in his version of his dad's (Buddy Ryan) 46 Defense.


    ---

    Defense: The New York Jets come into the season with high hopes for their new 46 hybrid alignment led my the All-Pro DT Muhammed Wilkerson and budding stars Quinton Coples and Sheldon Richardson. Coming off of a breakout seasons where he recorded 10 sacks, Lawrence Sidbury is looking to continue his assault on opposing Quarterbacks in 2015.

    The linebacker group has one season as a gelled unit with Pro-Bowl talent at every level. Pass rushing specialist Antwan Barnes will rush the weak-side, while 4th-year LB Demario Davis will man the strong side. Guarding the middle of the field and calling defensive adjustments is MLB Donald Butler, a key free-agent acquisition in 2014 who made 121 tackles last season. The Jets have been very happy and comfortable with Butler's addition and his presence in this defense allows it to scheme aggressively as needed.

    In the secondary, the return of Laron Landry to the Jets gives them the much needed physical presence in the box that the Jets were looking for to round out their 46 alignment. Cornerbacks Dee Milliner and Antonio Cromartie still man the outside with the addition of new CB - Terrell Thomas expected to work the slot. Dwight Lowery returns for his 3rd season in his second tour with the Jets, and it's likely that Lowery will be able to play centerfield more this season with the reinforcements installed all round him on the defense.

    The outlook on this Jets defense is hard to predict at this time, but if they can put together a solid scheme with the new 46/3-4 alignment, the sky is the limit. Rex Ryan is dedicated to putting his players in the best position possibly, and has publicy voiced that he wants to get after every QB they face this season. So far, a step in the right direction.

    Offense: Season 3 marks a make or break season for Geno Smith, as he had a very conservative season in 2014 with 11 TDs and only 3 INTs. Geno Smith made a very valiant effort to take care of the ball last season, but with added weapons Keliko Ambles & Dezrick Carr, Geno is going to be expected to take the next step. The Jets added troubled, but very talented RB Lincoln Holmes to the mix, a valuable weapon in the west coast offense with his smooth hands and route running, in addition to his open field elusiveness. The Jets also bolstered their line with the addition of RG - Roger Saffold, hopefully proving Geno Smith the time to spot his open receivers as well as giving Goodson, Holmes, and Ivory holes to pound the run game through.

    The Jets seem primed for a playoff run, but it's not always what it seems when you locate the paper champs. The Jets have all the makings of a championship roster, but lets see if it equates to a championship team on the field. Nonetheless it should be a fun season for the Green and White.
