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.
