Jets put their fronts in the mixer

The New York Jets defensive line is one of the best in football. They neutralize opposing run games by not giving up ground at the line of scrimmage and clogging up holes. But their pass rush isn’t too shabby either as they have the sixth-highest sack total in the league as well. Then head coach Rex Ryan throws another variable into the mix.

The Jets defense runs a bevy of different front looks at opposing offense, which forces any offensive lineman in the league to grind through a lot more game tape.

“It’s one of the best D-lines in the league right now,” said Kraig Urbik, who might make his first start this season at left guard. “They generate a lot of pressure and it’s the Jets. They do much different blitzes every down so we’re going to have to be on our game and do extra film work this week.”

“They have a lot more fronts that they show and that makes it more difficult to prepare,” said Eric Wood. “It definitely puts an onus on our film study.”

Step one however, will be standing their ground against a defensive line that doesn’t give up much.

“They have so many guys up there that when you watch film you don’t see them getting pushed back at all,” said Urbik. “They get a lot of one-on-ones and you see them beat a lot of one-on-ones too.”
