TOJ Sidelines – Thank You Darrelle Revis

Dalbin Osorio with thoughts on Darrelle Revis’ NFL career…

Eric Mangini gave the New York Jets their core four, similar to how the Yankees had them. In a lot of ways, and in never-really-stated ways, Mangini is the architect for a Jets era that included two winning seasons under him and two AFC Title Game appearances under former Head Coach Rex Ryan. That run of sustained success, the most this franchise has ever seen, began with Mangini’s Core Four.

There was the Hitman David Harris, the Silent Assassin D’Brickashaw Ferguson, and the All-Pro Nick Mangold. The fourth was a cornerback from the University of Pittsburgh, who some scours deemed hadn’t played any real competition (the best WR he covered while at Pitt was Louisville’s Mario Urrutia), and others said he reminded them of Patriots great Ty Law. Darrelle Revis, now that it is over, turned out to be the best of them all. A mercenary out of the state of Pennsylvania, Mike Tannenbaum traded up in round one to get the guy who would go on to become the greatest corner to ever play the game.

New York Jets Coaching Staff Breakdown – Defensive Edition

Clayton Smarslok breaks down the New York Jets defensive coaching staff

The 2018 season will be a very critical year as both Todd Bowles and Mike Maccagnan enter their fourth season at the helm. Since they were hired in 2015 there have been changes within the coaching staff at many positions on offense, defense and special teams. With a couple new hires for the upcoming season, it will be fascinating to see who makes up the New York Jets coaching staff.

After going into detail for all of the offensive coaches last week, I am now going to dive into the defensive side of the ball. The defensive staff coached the unit to the 22nd ranked scoring defense and 25th ranking in yards allowed. These coaches are all returning from last year so there aren’t major changes but it does mean another year for these players to learn under their tutelage. Let’s take a look at who will help improve this unit for the 2018 season.

Jets Brasil – Porque Que O Jets Nao Investiu Em OT?

Arthur Irwin for Jets Brasil on why the team didn’t invest in offensive tackle this offseason…

Quando o front office do New York Jets trouxe Spencer Long e Travis Swanson a tão sonhada mudança na OL parecia que estava prestes a acontecer. Na temporada anterior, o exterior da linha ainda precisava de afirmação e o interior da linha estava totalmente desmoralizado. O colapso era poucos segundos após o snap. Logo após essas duas contratações o Jets esfriou o mercado de jogadores de linha.

New York Jets – On The Underrated Skill Position Group

Joe Caporoso on perception vs. reality of the New York Jets skill position players…

ESPN’s Bill Barnwell recently ranked all of the offensive “arsenals” in the NFL from 32-1. The New York Jets came in last with the following commentary: 

Former undrafted free-agent wide receiver Robby Anderson leads the way, but the secondary targets are low-ceiling veterans such as Jermaine Kearse and Terrelle Pryor. General manager Mike Maccagnan let Austin Seferian-Jenkins leave, but the duo of former Raiders backup Clive Walford and fourth-round pick Chris Herndon form the majority of one of the league’s worst tight end depth charts. The move to spend $4 million per year on anonymous Browns back Isaiah Crowell doesn’t move the needle. The Jets will be investing in skill-position talent next offseason.

Barnwell (a quality writer who generally has sound research to back his work) is not out of step with other NFL commentators about the Jets. We have previously discussed Mike Clay ranking the Jets roster as the worst in the NFL (he has them with the 30th best group of receivers and 26th best group of running backs). Graham Barfield at Fantasy Guru shared a since deleted tweet of Family Guy characters projectile vomiting to describe the Jets receiver group. New York radio host Anita Marks has also recently questioned the team’s collection of skill position players. A common talking point around this team all offseason has been they have no weapons for Sam Darnold (or whoever plays quarterback).

While nobody is going to argue the Jets have a top tier collection of skill position players, there is a disconnect between perception and reality when looking at the talent and depth of this group.
