Hobson named Defensive Player of the Week

Linebacker Victor Hobson's hard work has finally paid off.

He was honored by the Jets coaches this week as the team's "Defensive Player of the Week."

"It's a great feeling," said Hobson. "I've just been trying since we started this system to come out, improve and get more comfortable. I'm trying to make my nichè each and every day, each and every week."

Hobson feels he and his teammates are finally comfortable in the team's new 3-4 defense.

"As a defensive unit, we are becoming more comfortable," said Hobson. "We're all playing better, we just feel better and more comfortable each and every day with everything that they call, which allows the coaches to become more comfortable with us and gives them more freedom to call different plays."

Now Hobson and the Jets new-improved defense get to live a dream of many, to play in the legendary Lambeau Field. The Jets play the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

"It's a tradition, the "frozen tundra." said Hobson. "Everyone has to go through it at one point. It's definitely going to be a big game."
