IS THE JETS DEFENSE FOR REAL?
Bart Scott is ready, willing and able to make 2011 a distant memory. He has slimmed down, and has been fired up this preseason, and the defense took his lead, not giving up an offensive touchdown as a first team. The pass rush, with Quinton Coples and Aaron Mayben, has looked much improved. The run defense has been great. But that is the preseason. It’s time to show it in the regular season. They will have a tough test going up against Fred Jackson, who averaged over 137 yards per game from scrimmage before injury ended his 2011 campaign.
These are some keys to the game tomorrow. Enjoy.
