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:
PASS BLOCK: -2.8

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:
RUN DEFENSE: 39.4 (first in the NFL)
PASS RUSH: -6.5
PASS COVERAGE: -11.8
SPECIAL TEAMS: 4.8
Now we will take a look at some individual positions and find some interesting PFF grades:
Geno Smith is second in the league in deep passing accuracy with 57.1%.
Bilal Powell is just outside the top ten in elusive rating with a 33.5.
Santonio Holmes leads the team with an overall grade of 2.2.
