Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports has released his team offensive line rankings.
Here is what Cole had to say about the Jets, who offensive line paved the way for them to lead the league in rushing:
7. New York Jets: I can already hear the good folks of Gang Green ripping me for putting this unit only one spot ahead of the Giants after the Jets led the league in rushing last season. That would be a reasonable thing to say if the pass protection hadn’t been so bad last year (the Jets ranked No. 23 according to Football Outsiders). A lot of that goes to the youth of quarterback Mark Sanchez(notes), but facts are facts. All of that said, no line in the league has a better chance of moving up significantly this season than the Jets, even after the release of veteran Alan Faneca(notes).
The ranking seems a bit low, but Cole does acknowledge that the Jets have the best chance of moving up significantly.
The Jets ranked third in the AFC East though. The Patriots ranked second and the Dolphins ranked fifth. Both seem a little high to me, especially the Patriots who might be without Logan Mankins.
