Rex breaks down Mo Wilkerson’s season Dan Leberfeld

Rex Ryan was asked a number of questions about the Jets’ best player, Mo Wilkerson, today, and here is some of what he had to say . . .

“I think Mo’s having a great year, phenomenal year. Here’s a guy that’s (high on the) charts in everything. Sacks, tackles, PBUs, all those type of things. He’s a big-time player.

“He is seeing a lot of double teams. There’s no surprises. Everybody knows him. They all know Muhammad Wilkerson. Maybe this time, they’ll vote him to a Pro Bowl, which he should’ve been All-Pro last year.

“I think his technique (has improved). Clearly he’s got one of the best teachers in the game. I think Karl Dunbar does a great job with our D-Line. So, I think Mo is, from a technique standpoint, he’s probably better than he’s ever been.

“I think he’s taken on a little bit more of the leadership role and sometimes that happens when your play dictates that. For some reason, the best players sometimes are looked at as the leaders and I think he’s accepted that.”
