New York Jets Fans – Give Us The Next Guy!

Joe Caporoso on New York Jets fans enduring love for 3rd and 4th string quarterbacks

If you want to be a popular quarterback with New York Jets fans, your best best is to slide as far down the depth chart as possible. We know the backup quarterback is always the most popular guy in town but here with the Jets, the third and fourth stringers have truly become the belles of the ball.

TOJ – “What If”, Episode 2: New York Jets Don’t Draft Vernon Gholston

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio asks “What If” the New York Jets don’t draft Vernon Gholston in Episode 2 of this TOJ Series

There were many questionable draft choices made by now former New York Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum, but none more so than former Ohio State Buckeye Vernon Gholston. The 2007 Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year, Gholston was one of two players to record a sack against his draft’s top pick, left tackle Jake Long, in his entire college career. Gholston was drafted in 2008 sixth overall, and was expected to be the Jets primary pass rusher out of the 3-4 outside linebacker position. We all know what happened next: Gholston did not record a single sack during his time with the Jets, and was released after the 2011 season. From the time Gholston was drafted to the time he was released by the team, 606 players recorded at least one sack. What if the Jets never drafted Gholston?

New York Jets Preseason – Final Roster Battles

Connor Rogers on the final roster battles heading into the New York Jets last pre-season game

While it has been a hectic week in New York Jets news (shocking), one of the more important topics has rarely been analyzed: the competitions for the final roster spots. Although the most important one will be left with unanswered questions in Geno Smith versus Mark Sanchez, some vital roles still need to be filled. In what has been a very average preseason in terms of team performance, the Jets have had some very unlikely players from the undrafted free agents to guys who were out of the league last year step up in limited playing time. Let’s breakdown the few roster battles that remain in the final upcoming preseason game: Continue reading “New York Jets Preseason – Final Roster Battles”

TOJ Film Room: Grading the 2012 Offensive Line – Austin Howard

Mike Nolan steps into the film room to grade the 2012 Jets’ Offensive Line. Next up is starting Right Tackle Austin Howard.

Before we get to the regular season, I wanted to take a look at some 2012 film of the Jets’ Offensive Line to see what is returning this year and to see what the Jets may have lost from 2012. During the regular season, I will be running a weekly column where I will grade out the offensive line’s individual performances. Unlike Pro Football Focus, I am going to grade the line from as much of a coach’s perspective as I can. This means that I will base my grades on technique and assignment in addition to play result. For the second part of the film study, let’s see what we found out about starting Right Tackle Austin Howard. To see how players are graded check out the first part of the series on D’Brickashaw Ferguson.

New York Jets 53 Man Roster Prediction

Joe Caporoso with a 53 man roster prediction for the New York Jets heading into their final pre-season game

Since our last roster prediction prior to training camp, plenty has changed around the New York Jets roster. Players have exceeded expectations. Players have disappeared. Players have been signed, hyped up an excessive amount and then released (hey, Braylon Edwards). With the final pre-season game only two days away, here is how I see the final 53 man roster shaking out, bearing in mind a few free agents could still be brought in prior to the season kicking off.

The Curious Case of New York Jets Kicker Nick Folk

Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio takes a closer look at New York Jets kicker Nick Folk.

Since New York Jets General Manager John Idzik took over, one mantra that everyone around Florham Park has been preaching is “competition.” We have a Quarterback competition, a Left Guard competition, a Tight End competition, a Safety competition, and a Wide Receiver competition. All of these competitions have received their fair share of warranted attention. However, one competition that seems to have been overlooked is the competition at Kicker between the incumbent Nick Folk and former Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff, the latter best known for the following kick…

Turn On The Jets Film Room: Kenrick Ellis, The Forgotten Man

Cole Patterson with a closer look at New York Jets NT Kenrick Ellis, a key component of the defense

The New York Jets have had a string of success in recent years in regards to the big-men that anchor the defense. Shaun Ellis, Kris Jenkins, Mike DeVito, Sione Pouha, and now, Muhammad Wilkerson highlight the bunch. Much has been made of the current incarnation of the Jets defensive line that features three first round picks in Wilkerson, Quinton Coples, and Sheldon Richardson. These three will be keys to the Jets success, both defensively and overall, for the foreseeable future. However, Kenrick Ellis, the forgotten man of the Jets defensive line rotation, holds a good deal of the Jets defensive fate in his massive hands.
