If you’re looking for Pancakes this Holiday Season, then you've come to the right place. The New York Jets Offensive Line can definitely tell you where to find them.
With a star studded cast of characters, the Jets offensive line has quickly risen up the ranks. They have become arguably the best five man front in the NFL.
Is this something anyone can argue? I think not!
The line's tremendous blocking has helped the Jets running game gain a whopping 2756 rushing yards on the season. They lead the league.
Furthermore, the Jets also hold the best rushing stats come every Sunday. They run for 172.2 yards per game. The Baltimore Ravens, the closest playoff team in this statistical category, fall 34.7 yards short of that feat.
But the "O" Line does much more than that. They protect rookie Quarterback Mark Sanchez. In 15 games this season, Sanchez has been sacked 26 times. Okay, the numbers make them 11th, but who’s to say Sanchez isn’t to blame for more than half of those sacks? That's 24 less that Ben Roethlisberger and Aaron Rodgers individually. That's protection!
Week after week, the New York Jets Offensive Line comes up big for their prima-donna So Cal superstar and their running clique.
When the skinny unfolds, there’s one thing that’s crystal clear. The gang of Nick Mangold, Alan Faneca, Damien Woody, Brandon Moore and D'Brickashaw Ferguson defend Green Street to their fullest. The block exceptionally well and protect the quarterback as if they were strapped.
However, if Pancakes were an NFL stat, the boys in green and white would have another story to tell.
They’d be opening up their own iHop.
