New York Jets by the numbers


With the end of another New York Jets regular season, let’s highlight the Jets leaders at every position.

Offense

RB: LaDainian Tomlinson — 914 yards.
WR (catches): Dustin Keller — 55.
WR (yards): Braylon Edwards — 904.
TDs: Edwards — seven.

Defense

INTs: Dwight Lowery, Antonio Cromartie — three
Sacks: Bryan Thomas — six

Special Teams

Punt returner: Jim Leonhard — 11.3 average
Kickoff returner: Brad Smith — 28.6 average

In finishing 11-5, the Jets enjoyed their winningest season since 1998 and marking the fourth time in history they surpassed 10 wins in a season.

With his fifth sack of the season yesterday, Jason Taylor now has 132.5 career sacks, moving him into a tie for eighth place with Lawrence Taylor and Leslie O’Neal.  Taylor failed to reach 7 sacks which would have triggered a guaranteed $750,000 for 2011.

Punter Steve Weatherford had 42 punts within the 20-yard line, which tied him with Ben Graham and Andy Lee for the single-season NFL record.

Vernon Gholston failed to record a sack again in this, his 3rd NFL season.  That makes 45 career games with zero sacks.

    All I have to say is…yuck. Hope this team is demolished by the Colts. There isn’t enough misery they can suffer this year or any year hence to match their disgusting behavior this past season. Hope Freeney has 12 sacks, and Sanchez ends up crying on the bench with Ladyan Tomlinson.
