Jets to use more 4 man fronts in 2012

The Jets have been a base 3-4 defense for years and that has remained the case under Head Coach Rex Ryan. However, defensive coordinator Mike Pettine says they will be using more 4 man defensive lines in 2012 because it “makes sense.” I agree with Pettine. The Jets’ 4 man line would probably have Sione Pouha and Muhammad Wilkerson at tackle and Quinton Coples and Calvin Pace at end with Coples moving to tackle on nickel downs and Aaron Maybin playing end. The Jets still will use lots of 3-4 and 46 fronts this season. They’ll show offenses lots of different looks.
