Now we talk about why the Jets will succeed with this.
First, and most simply, it caters right to what Rex loves. Rex loves to bring the pressure, and we all know it. Heck, sometimes we think most of the league knows it, and it caused us problems. Any scheme that will bring pressure, is good for coach Rex.
You need speed to run this system, and the Jets have drafted players to fit that bill.
We were slow last year and it showed. Enter, Quinton Coples. We have seen all the footage by now, the guy can fly off the edge. Throw him into the mix with guys like Sione Pouha clogging up the middle, Mo Wilkerson, Kenrick Ellis, Mike Devito, even possibly Ricky Sapp and Damon Harrison, and the Jets have active guys on the front four. Dunbar has already said they will use more four man fronts, and they have the horces to do it.
Enter, Demario Davis, who is fast, and an excellent tackler. He has the ability to get to the QB on the inside as well as drop back into pass coverage. Drop him into the fold with Aaron Maybin, who led the team in 2011 in sacks, the return of Bryan Thomas, who has has as many as 8.5 sacks in one year, Calvin Pace, who has 25 sacks in four years with the Jets, and Bart Scott who looks ready to rebound from an off 2011, and the linebackers are scary. Don’t forget about our best tackler, David Harris too. Granted, maybe not 1985 Bears scary, but scary. At full force, the Jets have a quick, and very active front 7 that will excel when setting up in these formations.
