Mangini admits personnel issues on D

Jets coach Eric Mangini was asked on Monday if the Jets problems on defense were related to problems with personnel or the scheme.

"It's a little bit of both," said Mangini. "We'll look at the combination of personnel, the different packages we have and see what we can do more effectively."

In other words, there are going to be line-up changes. One possible change could be replacing Bryan Thomas with David Bowens at outside linebacker.

But unfortunately for the Jets, there aren't a lot of backups on the roster who can make much of a difference with this struggling defense.

The team needs to add more defensive talent, and that's not going to happen until the off-season.
