    Rushing Stats

    For those people that don't realize how important running the ball & stopping the run are to the overall success of the team look at these numbers.
    NY JETS- Rushing offense/ Rush Defense
    3.2 4.4 (170)
    Denver 4.6 3.9 (108)
    San Diego 4.5 3.4 (78)
    Ravens 3.5 2.9 (126)
    N.E. Pats 3.9 3.6 (120)
    These are the toughest teams in the AFC, The Colts are an anomoly as they just have a sick passing offense.
    What stands out the most is the number of running plays. Teams have had 170 running plays against us. Guess what? Chad can't score from the sideline.
    Also, Vilma & everyone else will be beaten to a pulp half way through the season if this keeps up. Plummer, Rivers, Mcnair are not having "GREAT YEARS" but they don't have to do as much as Chad to get a win.

    Good post jetster. That 4.4 ypc that we're giving up is sickening. 4.4??? You've got to be kidding me. No doubt that Ronnie Brown is going to get the rock 25-30 times on Sunday. Our defense better be prepared.

    Good thing is Ronnie Brown stinks... He shared carries in college and last year. As the everydown back he has been struggling.

    This is why we need a big NT

    Robertson is getting pushed around way too much yet people still defend him and say he's "solid" or "showing progress".

    What about the other top teams in the NFL? Seattle gives up 3.5 per carry while only averaging 3.4 themselves. St. Louis gives up 4.5 per carry and averages 3.8. Cincinnati gives up 4.6 and averages 4.0. All those teams are either tied for first in their division, or 1/2 game out because of bye weeks. I agree that stopping the run and running the ball well are important to being a contender, but it's not as cut and dry as the stats you posted make it seem to be.

    Mangini needs to figure out a way to improve our run defense quickly or the season is over.

    I say bring in Lional Dalton.

    Yeah, he's 31 years old, but he's known as a very good run stuffer and is a two-gap player.

    I say give a 1 or 2 year deal and let him split time with Rashad Moore in the middle.

    I think it's pretty clear that D-Rob can't help us at NT. Let him share some time with Kimo at DE.

    I didn't include Cincy just for that reason, The Pats manhandled them (they are SOFT). Seattle has played 2 games w/o Alexander. The Rams have played (NOBODY YET)

    Our 3.2 ypr average is not as disturbing as the 4.4 we give up. We MUST get that down to 4 or less. We have a good enough intermediate and short passing game to overcome our rushing on offense to some degree. But getting gauged on every play up the middle....there is nothing that can make up for that.

    Miami is 3rd but you left them out. Miami's run offense is 3.9 and their run defense is 2.9.

    http://www.nfl.com/stats/teamsort/NF...ar?&_1:col_1=6

    The Dolphins 2.9 yards per carry run defense ranks them first, tied with the Ravens at 2.9. They also have run the ball well (3.9 YPC), but not enough since they play catchup in every game.

    Their problem is passing offense. They won't have to have Harrington do anything more than manage the game and with the stingy 5th ranked Miami defense.

    Should be low scoring game but since Miami can run the ball and stop the run and the Jets do neither, turnovers will be the only Jet chance.
