    Comment about Saints D Sunday night also applies to the Jets

    I was watching the game Sunday night and one of the commentators (don't remember who) was talking about the Saints front 4 when they were on the field. He said "They don't have any 'fast twitch' players" and can't generate a pass rush on their own.
    This sums up the Jets players as well. Even though we've spent 3 draft picks in the past 2 years (Wilkerson, Ellis, Coples) on d-linemen, none of them have the explosiveness to beat a blocker 1 on 1 on a consistant basis.
    And before anyone says "well, we play a 3-4 and they're not supposed to be good pass rushers", did you see JJ Watt last night?

    Not fair ... Watt is not human.

    If someone says that, ask them how many pass rushing OLBs we've drafted or signed in the Tannenbaum era.

    Yeah, defenders who can beat offensive linemen on a consistent basis are pro bowlers. And nice to have.

    Sure, we definitely need some of those.
