Quinton Coples had an injury set back.As the Jets contiue to convert coples into a NFL Linebacker.The progress is being made and its exciting to see his growth.he going help increase the pass rush on blitz packages.

Demario Davis and David Harris is a great combo. Harris laying the lumber and is great against the run. Davis speed is great asset and playing the linebacker position real good.he replacing Bart Scott with no problem.

GM Grade D

The weakest link on the Jets is secondary.Rookie Dee Milliner was drafted in the first round.Milliner has been working with the trainers more than with team.

Darrin Walls has been improving and could be a starting cornerback.

Antonio Allen has cover the tight real good.

This unit is a work in process a game against the Bengals humble the defense. It was mainly bout poor coverage.
