    The biggest problem with this defense throughout most of the season has been a lack of swagger. I think taking D-Rob out of the NT position brings us a big body in Moore which opens things for playmakers like Rhodes and Vilma. For the first time this season, I saw bodies flying everywhere in our defense, whether it be Rhodes knocking Maroney on his ass, DB's blitzing and shoving around their receivers before coverage, Erik Coleman coming across to sack Tom Brady.

    It really was a thing of beauty. Through the celebrations, I saw a certain swagger that we have lacked. A sense of pride about stopping the run. It's definitely something I sense we lacked, and we're actually showing signs of it. Just wanted to point it out and see if anyone agrees.

    I agree. The Jets flew to the ball carrier today and laid the smack down on the Patisies. Great game on D.

    Lmao

    doesn't swagger occur when you are actually good? i think it would be just a bit too assy to have swagger when you give up a buck fifty on the ground and another 200 plus in the air on average. the only swagger they should have is when they win, AND actually play solid D.

    EDIT: okay, I didn't read the whole post, and yes, after today, they should be proud. not too proud, and they should pat each other on the back, but they need to play at a certain level every week, every down, and for every inch. this is the first game i think anyone here can say they did almost that. that 31 second drive was a big letdown, and really put NE in a position to win.

    50+ yard run to dillon wasn't very good. That just can't happen. I saw a lot of missed tackles today as well. I think that the Pats just didn't play well, that's my opinion. But kudos to the Jets D for standing tall and playing tough when they needed to.

    I agree the D showed something. I think the bye hit at the perfect time. It looks like they made some key adjustments and the players really bought into it. It did look like they were flying to the ball instead of playing on their heals. It was nice to see the D actually initiate contact rather than reacting to it.

    Maybe its just me but I hate the little swagger/duck waddle/shimmy/funky chicken/pidgeon strut that players do after they make a good play.

    It's much cooler to just jog off the field as if you make plays like that all the time and get your helmet and back slapped by your team mates.

    That's exactly the way the Super Bowl III Champion Jets were.
