Can the Jets Effectively Run Ground and Pound?

Now, the problem going into 2012. The starting offensive line going into training camp:

D’Brickashaw Ferguson, Matt Slauson, Nick Mangold, Brandon Moore, Wayne Hunter. The same group as last year. Is this same group going to be the line of old, just because they have new coaches to enforce physicality?

Don’t necessarily expect it. Coaching is one thing, execution is another.

A lot of stock is being put in Dave Guglielmo, and his ability to turn around this offensive line. Although the Jets have brought in competiton at right tackle, Guglielmo has professed his love for Wayne Hunter.

As Jets fans, for the Ground and Pound to work, we better pray that Guglielmo and Sparano know what they are doing. They are putting a great deal of emphasis on attitude and game plan, with many of the same players that couldn’t do it last year. Maybe someone will beat out Hunter for his job, maybe not.

These guys have to execute, and as constituted, this offensive line and its ability to execute worries me.
