A little something to lift our spirits ...
OK, so it looks like we're entering into another Kotite-ian era with this team and it seems like all hope is lost. But Profootball Focus--which everyone on this board should take a look at occasionally--gives us a few rays of sunlight to bask in:
Some of the takeaways:
"It’s quite impressive that after years of great play from a fairly unique player in the shape of Shaun Ellis, the Jets have somehow managed to replace him with a remarkably Shaun Ellis-esque player in Muhammad Wilkerson (+4.8). After filling out a little since coming into the league, Wilkerson is even built exactly like Ellis and has his predecessor’s knack for making plays all day long. Wilkerson notched a hit and a hurry in this game, but it was his work in the run game that stood out, as he was constantly finding ways to slip off blocks and wreak havoc at or around the line of scrimmage."
Also, the offensive line graded out extremely well and had one of their best games of the season, which is a good thing for the line, but yet another indictment of Sanchez. I get their premium stats, so I can tell you Matt Slauson actually had the highest grade among the offensive lineman, followed by Brick.
