Jets to hire Gregg Williams as DC

Recommended Posts

Trumaine Johnson was young when played for Gregg Williams with Rams.  Now, he is 30 years old CB so don't count on him repeat his best..

He's 29.  Graded out as a top 25 corner under Gregg in 15/16.  It's not that far removed.

Bah. Best on the market and better than Kacy Rodgers, but it's not like we got Rex Ryan back at the helm. He's as mediocre as they come.

Gregg's D rankings by DVOA.  Very good after NO.

Saints: 17, 10, 28

Rams: 7, 9, 7, 15

Browns: 16, 12 (were 30th in 2016 under Ray Horton).

Not trying to negative here, in fact I’ve probably been one of the more positive guys with the coach signing despite it not being my first choice, however not with Trumaine. He was not misused under Bowles. Bowles’ defenses didn’t fail because of Bowles they failed because we don’t have enough good players. Trumaine is one them. He is not magically going to be a stud in Williams’ defense because it’s Williams. This guys speed is so diminished and his ability to press and tackle also really declined. Bowles has no choice but to play this guy off the balm. I think they also kept him out a week or two longer because they realized this early on and if healthy they had to play their 75 million dollar investment. They know they got clowned and we’re wrong on him. He’s pretty much just a below average corner at this point.

Good coach and a good hire...but I hate it. I have a hard time rooting for this guy.

If the Jets complete this hire I was half right.  I wanted a McCarthy/Gregg Williams combo.   We'll see how the Adam Gase/ Gregg Williams combo works.   Expect the Jets to be run more 4 -6 formations.  Leonard Williams may actually perform better in this formation.   I am feeling better about this team already.   Lets see what personnel move Maccagnan makes to help these coaches.

Anthony Barr should become top priority in that scheme.  Barr at Sam, Williamson at MLB, Lee at WLB.  Ship Jenkins to 3-4 team.

I love it...get LW playing in an attacking scheme and watch his numbers blow up. Think Lee and Adams will excel with Williams at the helm too. Glad we will play with that nasty edge as after watching hard knocks I wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of Gregg!
