Jets O-Line Shaping Up to be One of the Best in the NFL

As the Jets prepare for the rigors of another training camp soon, one position on the team that new coach Rex Ryan seems excited about is the offensive line. “I think the strength of our football team is probably our offensive line,” Ryan said to the Jets official site, “and that’s a great thing to begin right there — four former first-round picks in the line, two Pro Bowlers and a couple of near-misses. I think that’s a great way to start.”

The line will be a key, as it will keep either new QB Mark Sanchez or veteran Kellen Clemens upright, and also can open holes for whatever back is carrying the ball that day for the Jets. Another key to the line is coach Bill Callahan, who Ryan praised as “one of the premier offensive line coaches in the National Football League.”

The line of D’Brickashaw Ferguson, Alan Faneca, Nick Mangold, Brandon Moore and Damien Woody appears well on their way to being one of the five best in the NFL this season. “They’re all focused professionals who want to get better,” Callahan said.
