DAVID HARRIS NEWS

Don’t expect Calvin Pace to have a reduced role in 2014

The Jets re-signed Pace to a two-year deal in March, holding onto the veteran after his strong 2013. Pace’s off-field contributions are just as important as what he does on the field. He is one of only two defensive players who have been with the Jets since Ryan arrived (David Harris is the other). Ryan leans on Pace to help the younger players along, and he did that last year...

Grading the New York Jets 2014 Lineup Changes (Defense)

It’s no secret that the New York Jets defense has been the backbone of the team since the day Rex Ryan arrived. In 2013, the unit was able to rebuild on the fly as they had seven new starters, including two rookies, and still managed to field a very good defense. The stats are somewhat skewed thanks to an offense that constantly turned the ball over and put them in bad situations...

NFL Draft: Jets Select LB Jeremiah George (Iowa St) in the Fifth Round

NFL Draft: Jets’ Best Options for Day Three

‘Best’ is subjective, but I’ll try my ‘best’ to be objective. The Jets enter Day Three, having filled positions of need… …but GM John Idzik didn’t mortgage the future of his team to just win-now. The New York Jets clearly stuck their board on Day Two, selecting TE Jace Amaro and CB Dexter McDougle. Amaro provides the Jets with a little ‘edginess’ on offense, while...

Top 10 inside linebackers for the New Yor Jets in the NFL Draft

Don’t count out the linebackers. The New York Jets have a relatively young front seven, but there’s some age on that linebacking crew. And once you get to the inside, the veteranship can be both a negative and a positive. Sure, David Harris knows what he’s doing and had a bounce-back season last year, but he’s also a seven-year pro on the wrong side of 30. Harris knows his...

New York Jets Defensive Line Grade Sheet: Week 17 (Season Grades)

Sunday’s win over Miami in the 2013 season finale was a good one for Jets’ fans, players and coaches alike, as the offense put together one of its most impressive performances of the season, and the defense held the Dolphins to just seven points–a season best for New York. And while the performance helped the Jets climb back to .500 in the final week of the season, the struggles...

New York Jets – Linebacker Grades – Week 15

The Jets had a tough task at hand facing the mobile Cam Newton on Sunday. While an early injury slowed Newton’s scrambling ability, his arm was more than efficient. The inside linebacking duo of Demario Davis and David Harris had arguably their worst game this season. On the other hand, Quinton Coples continues to turn it on in the second half while Calvin Pace refuses to go off...

The Jets pulled off a bounce back win at home against the Oakland Raiders in week 14. After witnessing an anemic offense produce zero touchdowns for two straight weeks, the defense slowly looked gassed. While the win against the Raiders was a step in the right direction, the once impenetrable run defense has taken a step back. They allowed a 63 yard touchdown run to fourth string...

After an abysmal performance in Buffalo, the Jets needed a bounce back win in Baltimore. Unfortunately for Gang Green, the offense came out quite flat once again. On the flip side, the front seven was dominate and continues to beg their secondary for some help. The Ravens did not exactly light up the scoreboard but an anemic offensive performance from the entire Jets offense gave...

They certainly have the defense, allowing opponents to move the chains on 68% of opportunities, one of the best rates in the NFL. They aren’t moving the ball well offensively...
