Jets’ Line Brings Offense Together

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y., Sept. 24 With an average height around 6 feet 5 inches, the Jets’ offensive line could walk even a little taller Monday, knowing it contributed greatly to a 31-28 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The line neutralized Jason Taylor, one of the N.F.L.’s top pass rushers, and allowed running back Thomas Jones, an off-season acquisition from the Chicago Bears, to meet expectations.

The offensive line wore them down and gave me some creases to run through, said Jones, who gained 92 of his 110 yards in the second half.

The Jets’ line also shielded quarterback Chad Pennington, who returned from a high ankle sprain and was sacked only once. Credit for that goes largely to the second-year left tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson, who made Taylor look like something other than the Pro Bowl defensive end that he is. Taylor was limited to two tackles and no sacks.

It definitely was a team effort, Ferguson said. There’s so many different guys that step up at critical times, so it’s hard to pinpoint, but it’s just a great unit.

The Jets’ offensive line strives for cohesion, meeting up for weekly dinners and off-season cookouts.

Whatever it is, communication can solve any problem that you face, Coach Eric Mangini said. And it’s better that you’re all wrong together than half right or half wrong.

/// This is what connecting with the Tangible Vision is all about. When a team connect with their Tangible Vision, they connect to collaborate.

One concern for Mangini, though, was how his defense allowed Miami to rally for 15 points in the fourth quarter. For the game, running back Ronnie Brown gained 99 yards receiving primarily on screens and 112 yards rushing.

Mangini said he would not be surprised if the Buffalo Bills (0-3) tried to exploit that apparent weakness in the teams’ matchup Sunday.

Some people are true copycat coordinators where if you get beat on a play they’re going to run exactly that same play to see whether you got the problem fixed, Mangini said.
