    Best Jets defense ever. But the 2000 Ravens only allowed 165 points compared to our 250 allowed this season....

    "Given Darelle Revisí performance in the playoffs, Charles Woodson is probably praying that Kanye West is not presenting the Defensive Player of the Year award."

    Wow. Imagine this team with a healthy Jenkins and an offense with half as many 3 and outs.

    Being fair, our 2009 Defense really allowed 49 less points then the stats show, given 3 Pick-6's (HOU, NO, NE), 2 fumble returns (NO, MIA), and 2 kick returns (MIA, MIA). None of which happened when the Defense was on the field.

    I don't know if any of those would apply to the Ravens as well, but our defense is clearly better then our Points Allowed Stat would show.

    Great read, kind of puts things in perspective with how good this defense really is.

    Mark Sanchez crashed the 2009 playoff quarterback party.

    So, in what has become a pass oriented league, do the Jets and Mark Sanchez have a snowball’s chance in Indy next weekend?

    Recent history suggests that it’s not impossible to win the Super Bowl with mediocre quarterback play if you have an exceptional (not good….not great…..exceptional) defense. The 2000 Ravens – who won the Super Bowl with quarterback Trent Dilfer playing only a supporting role – have become the recent model for winning with an exceptional defense and not much else. (The 2002 Bucs – with Brad Johnson – get honorable mention).

    The Jets led the league in points and yards against this past season, but were they exceptional? How do they compare to the 2000 Ravens?

    Below are the actual numbers for the two teams.

    Somewhat surprisingly, the Jets compare fairly well with the 2000 Ravens.

    Breakdown by Category:

    Passing Defense:

    The 2000 Ravens yielded 2,997 yards passing – good for eighth in the N.F.L. that year. The Jets yielded a league best 2,459 - almost five hundred fewer yards than the second ranked Buffalo Bills.

    The Jets defense also led the N.F.L. in yards yielded per pass attempt at 5.4 (vs. 5.7 for Baltimore), and, perhaps most impressively, gave up only eight TD passes this season (vs. 11 for the Ravens).

    Advantage - 2009 Jets

    Rushing Defense:

    The 2000 Ravens yielded less than 1000 rushing yards and only five TDs on the ground. Opposing rushers averaged 2.7 yards per carry. Each of these statistics led the 200 season.

    This year’s Jets were eighth in the N.F.L. with a little over 1,500 rushing yards yielded.

    Advantage - 2000 Ravens

    Overall Metrics:

    The 2000 Ravens were number one in points allowed and number two in yards allowed. The Jets were number one in both categories.

    However, sticking with the points allowed metric, the Ravens yielded only 10.3 points per game (50% less than the average defense in 2000) while the Jets gave up 14.8 (almost 30% lower than the 2009 average).

    The metrics appear to wash out. The Ravens were better against the run. However, with the Jets’ remaining games against the pass-happy Colts and, if they get to the Super Bowl, the Saints or Vikings, a strong pass defense would appear to be of greater value.

    More nuggets……

    • The Jets’ upset prevented a final four that included the top four players in the M.V.P. voting – Philip Rivers, Brett Favre, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees.

    • Three of the quarterbacks remaining – all but Sanchez - were 4,000 yard passers this season. There have never been more than two 4,000 yard passers playing in the same conference championship weekend.
    To put this in perspective, consider that, before 1994, there had only been one season (1984) with as many as three 4,000 yard passers in an entire season. The N.F.L. record was crushed this year with ten 4,000 yard passers.

    • For the second consecutive weekend, the playoffs featured three blowouts and one close game. And, for the second consecutive weekend, the close game was the last game of the weekend.
    The first three playoff games of this weekend were decided by an average of 26 points.

    • The Cardinals were the lowest rated defense (based on points allowed) to make the playoffs. Staying true to form, they gave up 90 points in two playoff games. Maybe Warner’s potential retirement is not their biggest concern.

    • The Ravens managed to beat themselves every time they got any momentum. They committed three second half turnovers in Indy territory

    • Poor Nate Kaeding. First he has had to live his life as my paperboy’s identical twin – and now he misses three field goals in a play-off game.

    • For the second year in a row, a rookie quarterback has led his team to the A.F.C. Championship.

    • Given Darelle Revis’ performance in the playoffs, Charles Woodson is probably praying that Kanye West is not presenting the Defensive Player of the Year award.

    • Do you think the Colts will regret giving the Jets life in Week 16? Indy sat their starters in the 3rd quarter of that game – sacrificing a potential perfect season. The Jets haven’t looked back since. Wouldn’t it be the ultimate karma if they kept steamrolling right through this game?

    I love this defense, but they are not in the same class as the 2000 Ravens. This '09 Jets team reminds me of the 2001 Patriots.
