What do you get when you combine the following?
An offensive line comprised of young Pro-Bowlers such as OT D'Brickashaw Ferguson and C Nick Mangold, as well as savvy veterans such as OT Damien Woody and G Brandon Moore for some leadership mixed in.
Five-time Pro Bowl RB LaDainian Tomlinson, who is motivated to stick it to his former team and win a Super Bowl ring.
A young, powerful, downhill runner in RB Shonn Greene.
An athletic, mobile QB calling the shots behind center in QB Mark Sanchez.
The result: The No. 1 ranked rushing offense at 165.2 ypg.
This is nothing new. Jets lead the NFL in rushing yards throughout most of last season also. While they may have done a lot of re-structuring at the running back position, this is still the same team that can either punch you in the mouth in between the tackles or run east-south to the outside coming off the edge.
Furthermore, they keep opposing defenses off-balance with versatile WR Brad Smith operating out of the Wildcat formation.
The NFL may be a passing league now. However, when you execute the "ground-and-pound" gameplan, control the clock and keep the other team's offense off the field, you can win games. A lot of them.
