Scott, Pace, and Thomas aren't the main cogs of this defense, not anymore
Pace is still in his prime, Scott, with less weight can still be a very good player, Thomas is a stop gap, the Jets will be a lot younger at OLB this year with Maybin and potentially Sapp, not to mention a very talented and deep, and YOUNG, DL.
Pace and Scott are declining. I doesn't necessarily have to do with age. Scott wouldn't be on the team if the Jets didn't guarantee him his salary.
Maybin disappeared down the stretch because teams probably figured him out. Sapp has not done much in his career and his "potential" means very little right now. A weakness that the Jets did not address in free agency thus far or the draft.
Fact of the matter is two years ago, the LB corp was a strength of the defense and now it is a weakness.
