The secondary looked really good...even without Revis. Cro is playing great and the youngsters are stepping up. Wilson is adequate...not great...but adequate right now and who knows, the safeties might start turning into a strength of this team if the rookies can show something. Landry and Bell have been good surprises for us.
Once again, we're STILL one (maybe two) linebackers away from being an elite Defense. Scott, Thomas and Pace have their days numbered here....IMO they are simply hold-the-fort guys right now. They have good experience but they're slow and have lots of miles on their tires. The sooner we get a new OLB and guys like Davis are in the starting line-up the better.
Jets need 4 linebackers before they can be considered elite. Harris has been atrocious this year. I have no idea what the hell caused him to regress so much because he's not even old when compared to our other linebackers.
Harris is living on his reputation with Jet fans and is as much to blame for the Jets struggles against the run as anybody.
