Its going to be a very long off season and I thought it would be interesting to go through the top 30 Jets of the past season. It will overall be a two week segment. The order is strictly based on my opinion and is open for debate.
And so it begins
Eric Smith 115 tackles 2.5 sacks 1 INT 1 Fumble recovery
Now I know he had one of the worst seasons a safety can possibly have, but he was second on the team in tackles, and for that he does get some respect.
Nick Bellore Team high 31 Special teams tackles
Bellore didn't have much impact on defense but he was a great ST contributor. you cant discredit that.
What???? the long snapper? at 28? Yea I know you almost never here Purdam's name called. And that's the best part. If your Long snappers name is being called on a frequent basis then he must not be doing too good of a job. The fact that no one has heard Purdam's name called means hes doing what we need our long snapper to do.
Brodney Pool 37 Tackles .5 sacks 1 int 4 PD 1 Fumble recovery
Pool didn't have a good season. He is considered a guy that goes after the ball, yet didn't have a int until the last game of the season. He did miss 3 games due to injury but its still not acceptable. In order for the Jets to improve in 2012 Pool has to step up or be sent to the bench.
# 26- 23 to come tomorrow
Let the debate begin
