You can only scheme for so long but the Jets can't hide their lack of athletic ability anymore, especially in today's passing league where you need linebackers flying from sideline to sideline, athletes to challenge a defense over the top and playmakers on both sides of the ball.
We do not have ONE wide receiver or tight end who presents a mismatch physically, yet we got a bunch of linebackers who are a liability in almost every aspect of the game, especially physically as they are way too slow and not athletic enough.
Time to get some athletes in the offseason...
They've already started to get younger and more athletic on the defense and offense in the last two drafts. Demario Davis, Stephen Hill, Wilkerson, etc.
That's why I think they starting to turn that corner. Next year should be even better as we say bye bye to Scott and Pace
