2-2 the Jets stand as we get ready for tomorrow night in Atlanta. With one-quarter of the season gone by, let’s see how the grades look according to our friends at Pro Football Focus.

First we will take a look at the team grades, on offense:

OVERALL: -31

PASS: -2.3

RUSH: -3.9

PASS BLOCK: -2.8

RUN BLOCK: -18

PENALTY: -4

Obviously, numbers that need to rise if the Jets are going to perform at a higher level for the rest of 2013.

Now for the defense:

OVERALL: 18.4

RUN DEFENSE: 39.4 (first in the NFL)

PASS RUSH: -6.5

PASS COVERAGE: -11.8

PENALTY: -2.7

SPECIAL TEAMS: 4.8

Now we will take a look at some individual positions and find some interesting PFF grades:

QUARTERBACK:

Geno Smith is second in the league in deep passing accuracy with 57.1%.

RUNNING BACK:

Bilal Powell is just outside the top ten in elusive rating with a 33.5.

WIDE RECEIVER:

Santonio Holmes leads the team with an overall grade of 2.2.

TIGHT END:

Kellen Winslow has posted the second best slot performance of tight ends, with a catch rate of 78.6.

DEFENSIVE TACKLE:

Damon Harrison is leading all DT’s with a run defense grade of 11.8, and a run stop percentage of 9.0.

DEFENSIVE END:

Sheldon Richardson is leading the race for PFF rookie of the year with an overall grade of 8.3 and a run defense grade of 10.5.

LINEBACKER:

David Harris is second in the league for 3-4 inside linebackers with an overall grade of 6.2.

CORNERBACK:

Believe it or not, the cornerback with the highest overall grade on the team is Kyle Wilson with a -0.5.

Just found it interesting to take a look at how some of the guys are doing through the first four weeks of the season.

    The fact that Kyle Wilson has the highest rating for a CB on this team is nothing short of scary!

    • Alan Schechter

      Isn’t it? I had to rub my eyes when I looked at it. It’s a little bit disturbing.

    • Frank Antonelli

      There you go again being negative. Guess what the Jets won again. The best part of this is your post count will go way down this week! The Jets told all the haters and fake Jet fans to go to hell!

      • Paul Newbold

        Great win! Geno grew up last night. The down side once again was the secondary, Walls stepped up last night,, but the tackling was poor across the secondary. To quote your hero, “:It wasn’t pretty but we’ll take it” The secondary is still a major concern, sorry you can’t see that. Have a nice day!

        • Frank Antonelli

          Yea, the Jets have the 2nd ranked defense and they have secondary problems. Get a clue buddy. Rex asks more from his secondary than any other coach. They are put in very vulnerable situations and they still produce. Obviously you have no clue what type of defense the Jets are using.

          • Paul Newbold

            My point simply is the secondary needs to improve. Yes Rex in his blitz happy schemes exposes his secondary and increases the pressure for them to produce. The fact that they tackled poorly doesn’t change, they need to improve.

          • Frank Antonelli

            Let me try again! The Jets defense is ranked 2nd. I’ll gladly take whatever problems you seem to think they have!
