    Lol.

    Opponents have rushed 55 times and have gotten 102 total yards on the ground versus us.

    Rex won't have what happened last year versus Miami happen to us again.

    Plus Ronnie Brown has lost some of his explosiveness and RW has to start aging eventually. To credit a different thread, Lousaka Pollite might be the most dangerous running threat.

    That's impressive. Didn't know it's been that good.

    It has been quite clear thus far this year (with and without Big Jenks)...

    OUR RUN DEFENSE IS DIRTY.

    But let's not speak too soon. Let's see what happens this week. The Patriots run game isn't exactly potent.

    Devito has been a beast against the run. I'm becoming a big fan of his.

    I'm more interested in what it will be with 2 games left.

    Pouha, Devito, & Ellis = the best run-stuffing d-line in the NFL

    Ellis has been playing like an animal this year. Let's hope he can keep it up over 17 more games.

    FYI, in the second Jet-Fin game last year at Giant Stadium, the Fins' ran 28 times for 57 yds, 2.03 yds per carry.

    Pouha & DeVito are a heck of a tandem and Ellis is always solid. Rex grew up in coaching as a DLine coach. He definitely knows how to couch those guys up front.

    The Jets Run D has been nothing short of spectacular, and that's including one game against a top level run team in Baltimore and against the Pats - who always rack up yards on the ground, even without the traditional bell cow back.

    The run defense. Devito and Pouha have been really excellent. I just hope they don't burn out as the season progresses - they seem to be out there on every play.

    Lost in all the hoopla from last week is that Gholston made a nice TFL against the Pats. He's getting some meaningful snaps and has been holding the POA pretty well too. If Howard Green can be rotated in and not give up too much, we should hopefully be OK.

    Pouha might be too old but I could see Devito getting a pretty decent contract somewhere if anybody is watches the way this defense performs on the field and not just the antics off of it. Gotta love the undrafted guys that step up and play well.

    Pouha is 31, but he entered the NFL at 26, so another solid 5 years from Pouha is not out of the question, IMO.

    If we stop Ronnie Brown on Sunday, we'll win this game. The only reason why they beat us in the Meadowlands last season was because of poor Special Teams play, something I have yet to see this season. Ted Ginn is no longer there returning kicks, we should win this game.

    New England ran right at Pouha repeatedly, they must have thought with Jenkins out that they'd be able to run up the middle. No dice.
