Sapp, Davis, Bellore and Maybin; The Fastest LB Group in Jets History?
I think they might be. If they can all continue to develop especially "one trick pony" Maybin, we will have a truly lethal group of Backers to go along with a returning B. Thomas, who is not exactly a slowpoke himself, Harris, Pace and slim and trim Bart Scott.
In fact for our defense to become truly ELITE we NEED those guys to play well this season. I personally think Davis is going to be an absolute STUD in the middle although he may not play alot early in the year. Sapp and Maybin are truly the keys to our Pass Rush becoming a DOMINANT factor. With Coples, Wilkerson and Co. taking up blockers and pushing the pocket, and with our secondary causing opposing qbs to hold on for that extra second, those guys could rack up some nice numbers. When teams gear to stop one of them, Coples or Wilk etc. will make them pay. Calvin Pace will also benefit greatly from having so many other pass rushing threats to deal with.
I am very excited to see our "young", fast and athletic lbs this year. I think we could potentially have the best overall lb group in the league this year.
