There has been a lot of talk about the signing of Yeremiah Bell. Specifically, the talk has been about whether the Jets have upgraded the safety position as a result of this signing. We all know that Eric Smith had his difficulty in pass defense over the middle of the field, and they say Yeremiah Bell is not known for pass coverage. I have heard that Eric Smith is actually better in pass coverage than Bell. This prompted a tale of the tape, where we break down the stats and see if that is really true.
The breakdown, you will find, is very interesting.
