Where you planning to go to the SB.
Boxscore might look good. Thats about it.
However the draft hasnt happened yet. If we draft a pass rusher and he works out (anti vernon) then Wilson will be fine. Corners just can't cover for 7 seconds every play. Unless they are top ten at their postion like Revis and cro.
Aside from the top 1% of CBs in the league CB play is VASTLY dependent on pass rush.
You look at a team like the giants with Corey Webster - when their Dline was wrecking people, Webster was a top CB and got paid accordingly, as their rush slowed down (see 2012) webster was badly exposed.
Cro experienced an excellent season in 2012 some of which should carry over to 2013, such as his physicality, leadership, etc. However 2012 was a statistical abberation for him when it comes to penalties. He was our most penalized defensive player in 2010 and 2011 and improved greatly in that area in 2012. In order for our defense to be successful, he HAS to do the same in 2013. Defensive holding and PI are crushing penalties as they keep drives alive by giving first downs - that is where we need Cro to continue to play well.
This draft should allow us to find an excellent "deep center fielder" at the safety position which is something we have never really had in the Rex era. We should also be able to find some sort of an edge rusher, that when pared with coples, wilkerson and barnes should allow us to rush 3 or 4 players on passing downs and play a lot of zone coverage. Rex's best defensive game as the Jets HC came vs NE in the playoffs when Shaun Ellis went ballistic, we were able to pressure brady with 3 guys, and drop 8 in coverage. Hopefully our rush will allow us to do that again this season and make up for the loss of Revis talent.
Wilson is no pro-bowler, but he is a pretty good tackler and far from a bust. Hopefully with improved defensive line/LB play he will be an above average defender for us.
Kyle Wilson is an avg nickelback and a below average #2 CB who will be raped next season with the schedule we have and our run defense improving.
I love the Jets fans arguing about pass rush. We haven't had a pass rush in 8 years suddenly drafting 1x OLB is going to fix it? We need a CB.
The question is have YOU watched CB play across the league? Kyle Wilson is EASILY a starting caliber corner. Yes, he has a weakness- turning his head around on deep balls. But he's one of the best in the game at closing gaps and is a very intelligent player.
Wilson celebrating after making routing plays against JAG WR's is very intellgient BTDubs
I still hate the Revis trade, but time will tell. If we trade up for Geno my head will explode.
I'm concerned that Kyle Wilson is becoming the new Eric Smith. A liability in coverage who compromises our pass defense every single year yet for some wierd reason the coaching staff and fans will make every excuse for him.
He was fine. Definitely an average NFL VB, and that is all you really need when you have a pro bowler in Cro on the other side.
If the pass rush is consistent, Kyle Wilson CAN start on a winning football team (not saying we'll be a winning team in 2013, but in 2014). I'd take Kyle Wilson over Aaron Ross, and the Giants won a Super Bowl with Aaron Ross starting. Twice. Let's not act like Wilson is the second coming of Justin Miller out there. He isn't that bad. Worth a 1st round pick? No, but what's done is done.
Quarterback and pass rush.
That's what the NFL's about.
Half the quarterbacks in the league throw for 4000 yards these days.what makes you guys think Wilson is that much different than most if the other cbs in the league?
If we improve our pass rush this year, Wilson will be the least of our concerns next year.more worried about olb, s, g,,wr, te and of course qb.
