The New York Jets are having issues on defense, and it stems from a philosophical change the team wasn’t built to handle. This team was built and drafted based on a base 3-4 defense.
There’s one problem. The defense of the New York Jets have been playing a lot of 4-3, and the team isn’t built to play a lot of 4-3. The Jets are built to rush from the edge with their linebackers. They also have linebackers who can cover tight ends and running backs man to man.
