Mark Craig, Star Tribune

Although he doesn't like to talk about it anymore, those close to him say he feels he was made a scapegoat. Despite losing four starters because of injuries, the suspension of tackle Josh Evans, an underachieving front line and lack of overall team speed, the Jets' defense was eighth in the NFL in points allowed (18.6 per game).
This in unbalievable the guy is the ultimate defensive coach if he can do this with the jets last year defense just imagine what he can do with us i think we are in for a big surprise defensivly. I mean carter was the starting safety, I think we will have a top 10 defense this year, IF WE KEEP HEALTHY.
