OLB Coach Jeff Weeks Will Not Return in 2012

The Jets, it seems, are cleaning house. OLB coach Jeff Weeks, Rex Ryan's old college roommate, will not be returning in 2012. As Manish Mehta reported earlier, he will be replaced by former intern Mike Smith. Manish's report is just now being confirmed. This is interesting especially in light of the earlier news about Henry Ellard. The Jets are clearly trying to be aggressive and shake up the defense. I think it is a good sign that Weeks is being canned, as it shows the team is starting to value production over loyalty. I suspect it has something to do with the complete inability of the linebackers to generate pressure on the quarterback and collapse the pocket. I suspect there will be a lot more news in the coming days, but for now, let us know what you think in the comments below.
