We have talked about the Jets offensive line, and why the Jets can get back to the playoffs on the back of this group. Despite the rough start in 2012, the group rebounded to be one of the top groups in the league once again. And they are led by their two stars, D’Brickashaw Fergsuon and Nick Mangold.

Why are they the best? Consistency.

You look at their grades overall in 2012 and you know how good they are. Nick Mangold posted a PFF grade of 20.5, and D’Brickashaw Ferguson posted a 23.5, putting both of them in the top 10 at their respective positions. However, when you look at their week by week grades, you see how good they really were:

D’Brick, for example, posted only 4 negative rated games all season long, and one was a -0.1. On the positive end, he posted six grades of over 2.0, which included a 3.5, a 4.1, and a 6.5. He rebounded off of a rough 2011 to have a stellar, consistent, 2012.

Nick Mangold was his ever consistent self as well. Nick only posted 3 negative grades all season long. He posted 7 games of over a 2.0 grade, and a whopping 5 that were greater than 4.0. Nick is the best, and he is as consistent as they come.

    first of all dont count on marty moronweg to turn the jets offense into a powerhouse. I am an Eagles fan and clearly you have not watched the eagles play the last two years. Vick had one good year in philly with marty but after that everything went to hell. Marty and Andy’s west coast offense was nothing like short passes to set up the run game it was more like deep passes to set up short passes and maybe get a field goal because they Andy and Marty didn’t really care about the fact that they had two great running backs. Plus, Marty will be working with Dirty Sanchez who sucks Marty may be looked at as a quarterback developer but thats because he worked with alot of qbs who were already great qbs. If anything Marty will make Dirty Sanchez worse having him pass 50 times a game like he did with Vick and stink it up. I hate the Jets ut at the same time I feel sorry for u Jets fans stuck with idiots rex ryan and woody johnson
