    jets are improving their defense a lot bringing in familiar players but ed reed gave them A LOT of flexibility to use the other 11 players on defense pretty creatively. remains to be seen how that works in nyj.

    I really like Jim Leonhard, he's a return man too I believe. He reminds me of Welker, if Welker played defense.

    So is the safety on the Colts, I'm sure Randy doesn't smile about facing him. Not comparing them, but size doesn't matter. Unfortunately, The Jets have a secondary we wish we had. Revis, Sheppard, Leonhard & Rhodes are better than anyone we have.

    I think Meriweather is better than Sheppard or Leonhard. Though it's tough to compare a S to a CB in terms of value. That said, I'm not exactly sure how Sheppard compares to our CBs.

    Re: Jim Leonhard to Jets (?)

    So anyone of them is better than anyone we have. Damn than we just suck don't we. We should cut the lot of them and start from scratch.

    Meriweather and Sanders are a whole lot better than Leonhard, and Meriweather will soon be getting to that level of Rhodes. I give them the edge at CB, but only because their guys are playmakers, which we seem to lack at that position, but lots of that also has to deal with the fact that we have a non-existent pass rush. Once we get to the QB, we'll see their numbers get better.

    We don't have anyone as good as Revis, but Leonhard, Rhodes, and Sheppard are nothing special. I do like the Leonhard signing for the Jets, though; the guy's a good player. Looks like the Ravens, sans Ed Reed and Ray Lewis, are coming to the AFCE. We'll see how this works out.

    Sanders is definately not better than Leonhard.

    Re: Jim Leonhard to Jets (?)

    I think Sheppard is better than any of our corners, and he is the Jet's SECOND best corner. Add the fact that Rhodes is better than any of our safeties, and you basically have a much better secondary than ours. Meriweather looks good, and our rookie CB's played well at times, and should progress, but right now, the Jet's secondary is way better than ours with the additions of Sheppard & Leonhard. Overall their D might be better than ours. Harris and Scott in the middle is gonna be tough to face the next 10 years.

    Re: Jim Leonhard to Jets (?)

    Maybe three or four years ago.

    I don't think, at this point, he's any better than Hobbs is. Revis is certainly better, though that's what you get for drafting a first-round CB :)

    Meh. Rhodes had one excellent year, but I didn't really see much from him last season.

    Re: Jim Leonhard to Jets (?)

    I too think Merriweather is better than Sheppard or Leonhard. However, I thought Leonhard was/is a better player than Sanders. It's going to be interesting how much Leonhard is going to get from the Jets. If it is a similar contract than what Sanders received (3yrs/9 million), I wonder why the Pats never even brought Leonhard in for a look. Leonhard made a ton of plays for the Ravens last year.

    Bob Sanders is about 20 pounds of muscle heavier and hits like a freight train. His return was instrumental in the Colts winning the 2007 SB. Leonhard is no Sanders.
