As the Jets enter a new decade, it’s time to look back on the previous decade. Full Press Jets has complied an All-Decade (2010-2019) team.
From 2010 to 2019, the New York Jets went 68-92. It’s a decade most Jet fans would like to forget, bar the 10-6 record of 2015 (where they didn’t make the playoffs), and the 11-5 season of 2010 where they fell short in the AFC Championship game. That being said, with such a promising young team on the horizon, we’ve compiled a list of the All-Decade New York Jets team.
Ryan Fitzpatrick- The offensive leader of this decade team edges out the injured Mark Sanchez. Fitzpatrick simply had the better stats of any other quarterback during this time. Other players up for consideration included the disastrous legacy of Geno Smith, and the veteran Josh McGown.
Chris Ivory- Ivory chalks in at RB1, banking on his strong 2015 season. The last 1,000+ yard rusher since Curtis Martin, Ivory was also selected to a Pro Bowl for that same season. His time spent also produced two 800+ yard campaigns. His tenure and success earned him the spot as the All-Decade starting running back.
Eric Decker- Decker is his 3 seasons with the Jets amassed over 2000 receiving yards. Although he was plagued during the 2016 season where he only played 3 games, Decker was still one of the few 1000-yard receivers the Jets had during this decade. His contributions during his two meaningful seasons earn him a spot on the team.
Brandon Marshall- Despite another two-season receiver for the Jets, Marshall was an efficient #1 for the 2015 campaign where he was a Pro Bowl selection. This came from a 1,500-yard season performance. Unfortunately, he was on the backend of his career in New York, leading to his short stint in the green and white.
Jeremy Kerley- Kerley never posted a hugely successful season. At his height he was an 800-yard pass catcher. But what puts him on this list is the same reason Bilal Powell beat out Shonn Greene. Kerley spent 6 nonconsecutive years with the Jets making him one of the longest-tenured players of this decade team.
Dustin Keller- At his highest point, Keller was an 800-yard tight end, an impressive feat for an under-utilized position. Despite the majority of his career being played in the 2000-’09 decade, Keller has been the best tight end the Jets had. This isn’t to say Chris Herndon won’t make the next decade list, however.
D’Brickashaw Ferguson- The Brick Wall has been a staple of the Jets offensive line in the late 2000s and early 2010s. A fan favorite, and one of the best offensive lineman in Jets history, he started in all 160 games he played during his 10-year career. He was voted to the Pro Bowl 3 times (’00, ’10, ’11).
Brian Winters- Brian Winters makes the list as one of the longest-tenured offensive linemen for the Jets during this time period. However, his time at left guard was short-lived until his eventual switch to right guard. However, considering the lack of talent at this position, that’s enough to earn him a spot.
Nick Mangold- Mangold was the first name charted for this offense. A New York Jet legend and fan favorite, Mangold spent his entire career with the green and white. He started every game of his career, and ultimately was voted to the Pro Bowl 7 times in his career, along with 2 All-Pro honors.
Brandon Moore- Moore was a Pro Bowl right guard for the Jets during the 2011 season. After starting in every game he played after his 2003 season, Moore is one of the most consistent offensive linemen. Despite his career-ending in the early 2010s, the talent pool at right guard was always limited for the Jets. Moore was ultimately replaced by earlier entry Brian Winters.
Breno Giacomini- Despite only spending 3 years with the Jets, Giacomini managed to start in every game he played in for Gang Green. While not decorated with Pro Bowls or All-Pro selections, in the tumultuous decade consistency was something the Jets could seldom find. For such reason, Breno makes the All-Decade roster cut.
