Pettine Will ‘Deconstruct the D’ Live on Tuesday

Posted by jetsstaff on May 24, 2012 – 4:32 pm

In three seasons as Jets defensive coordinator, Mike Pettine’s unit has finished first, third and fifth in total yardage allowed. He is already at work on his 2012 defense with OTAs under way and he’ll stop by our Jets studios at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 29, to give us a progress report.

“Deconstructing the Defense” will be simultaneously broadcast live on newyorkjets.com and on Facebook. Eric Allen will host the program and fans can send in their questions for Coach Pettine via twitter.com/nyjets, Facebook.com/Jets and here on the Radar. The show’s archive will also be made available shortly after the live broadcast.

The Green & White have made a number of alterations to their defense, drafting the likes of DE Quinton Coples, LB Demario Davis and safeties Josh Bush and Antonio Allen in April. Perhaps the biggest changes have taken place at safety where veterans LaRon Landry and Yeremiah Bell were added in free agency and both are expected to make immediate contributions. Nose tackle Sione Pouha also inked an extension and veteran OLB Bryan Thomas — the longest-tenured Jet — continues to work his way back from last year’s Achilles injury.

Eager to rebound from a .500 record, head coach Rex Ryan has indicated he’ll take a more hands-on approach on defense.

We’ll have Pettine in-studio to discuss all things “D” on Tuesday. We encourage Jets Nation to submit your questions now to twitter.com/nyjets, Facebook.com/Jets and here on the site.

    The “hands-on approach” Rex needs to take is on OFFENSE — but to do that he’d have to be a complete HC, which he’s not. Sparano already sounds like the HC and Rex like the mascot.

    Bell looks like Cheeseburger Eddy from Adam Sandler’s The Longest Yard

    Mike Pettine is next….Schotty got a lot of blame for the offense being medicore. But Pettine seemed to get a free ride when the D was blowing leads or couldn’t stop a nose bleed. That Denver game should have never…ever…happened…for 3 1/2 quarters that D was outstanding…you mean to tell me that you let Tebow drive 95 yds. Now…I am no rocket scientist..but slow it down…fake an injury….do something to stop the clock..that Raider game D calling was horrible…Pettine…you are next…Rex should have taken over the D anyway.

    Are the JETS “D” going to have a pass rush without a lot of different blitzes and a linebacker who could cover the tighten?One more thing with Rex stated he wants more hands on the “D” wouldn’t that put more confusion with Pettine too many hands in the pot?
