Analysis: Without Darrelle Revis (concussion), the Jets dressed only four cornerbacks -- and only three saw time on defense. Isaiah Trufant was limited to special teams. Can't remember the last time the Jets used only three corners in a game. Basically, they played the game with only five DBs, as Smith was limited to only a handful of snaps. ... Rex Ryan, explaining Coples' low snap count, said he wanted 300-pound bodies (i.e. DeVito) to face the Steelers' huge O-Line. Fine, but Coples, their No. 1 pick, isn't exactly a lightweight at 285. ... Davis, a third-round pick, made an early impact as an outside rusher, but wasn't heard from again. He deserves an expanded role.
