Here's hoping that GS3 under center, and Coples on
the edge works out.

In all seriousness, it's pretty pathetic that he is our sack leader when we cut him in September and two days later, re-signed him.
TOP 5 Sack Leader in the NFL
1. Aldon Smith, SF 15.0 / 3-4
2. J.J. Watt, HOU 14.5 / 3-4
3. Von Miller, DEN 13.0 / 4-3
4. DeMarcus Ware, DAL 10.0 / 3-4
5. Cameron Wake, MIA 9.5 / 4-3(maybe some 3-4)
Team Leaders in Sacks
Denver - 35 / 4-3
Green Bay - 33 / 3-4
Cincinnati - 31 / 4-3
Houston - 30 / 3-4
St. Louis -29 / 4-3
It's apparent that an elite pass rusher/elite team pass rush can be produced in any scheme.
What's wrong with the Jets? Is it a pure talent standpoint or do we have the wrong personnel for Rex's D? Is it Rex's fault for not adjusting to the team's strengths?
How would you fix this problem for 2013 and beyond?
Our OLBs are from the 2002 draft, and were never more than good players. We've also had 2 NTs playing injured or not playing most of the year.
