Dan Marcus on the Darrelle Revis trade already paying dividends for the New York Jets
Much like a Presidency, it is very tough to accurately assess a major trade in sports until several years down the road however, the early returns on the much-ballyhooed Darrelle Revis trade are already making it worth it for the Jets. When the Jets and Buccaneers were having their stare-down over compensation for a potential deal that would send Darrelle Revis to Tampa Bay, there were many including myself that were screaming from the rooftops that in order for any deal to be remotely worth it, the Jets would have to get at least two First-Round picks back in return.
I’ll admit, the Jets’ well-documented history of selling low on players that were still in their prime but coming off injuries (see: Vilma, Abraham, Washington), only heightened this sentiment. I firmly believe that if the Jets were to trade Revis in a typical year, he would easily fetch two “1’s” and two “2’s” but you have to believe that John Idzik got as much value for Revis as he could have given the circumstances. When seeing what the Jets ultimately got in return for their all-world Cornerback, I was among that contingent that was incensed, feeling as though we had gotten fleeced, coupled with the fact that the Buccaneers gave him a sham of contract with a big sticker price with ZERO dollars in guarantees, it was maddening.

Mike O’Connor takes his weekly look at where and how often certain Jets players lined up on defense.
Going back into games to look for more insight and evidence is usually a fun and useful tactic, but it took a lot out of me to look back at the Jets-Bengals massacre. Regardless, I came away with more interesting snap counts of defensive players in Rex Ryan’s complicated schemes and I noted where players were lining up. For that spreadsheet, click here. Let’s put aside the atrocious play from the Jets and look at some patterns in defensive snaps.

In a half a season full of ups and downs, the Jets have had many positives to take from the linebacker position. More importantly, John Idzik is getting a great grasp on what needs to be done in the upcoming offseason at the position. While one young players career is blossoming, another former star’s has been rejuvenated. Not all is perfect in Jets land though, as there are major concerns at outside linebacker. Let’s give out overall grades from the first half of the season. Continue reading “New York Jets -Linebackers Midseason Review”

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio grades the New York Jets running backs through the first half of the season.
I grade each play on a 1 to 5 scale. Loss of yardage is rated a 0, no gain is rated a 1, a gain of 1-3 yards is rated a 2, gains of 4-6 are rated a 3, gains of 7-9 yards or are rated a 4, and gains of 10+ yards are rated a 5. TDs increase your overall grade by 10 points, and fumbles decrease your score by -5. I do it like this to factor in receptions, reward positive plays accordingly, and penalize negative plays accordingly. The total from the grades of each individual play are then converted to letter grades, with As representing (50 or higher), Bs (39-49), Cs (29-39), Ds (19-29), and Fs (0-18) being given out for total performance). Performance of the offensive line and available running space is also factored in.

Cole Patterson grades out the New York Jets tight ends in week 8.
Every week Cole Patterson will break down the performance of the New York Jets tight ends. Here is his take on week seven.
Looks like I will be the first to do a positional grade, here at TOJ, for this fresh can of ‘you know what’ delivered to the New York Jets, an enviable task. There is not much to say about the individual performance of the Jets tight ends this week and what does warrant mention is certainly not good…

TJ Rosenthal goes No Huddle on the New York Jets no show against Cincinnati
Initial reaction to the Jets 49-9 loss to the Bengals
The New York Jets continue to be the NFL’s most inconsistent team. One week after an impressive overtime win against the New England Patriots, they were thoroughly humiliated by the Cincinnati Bengals 49-9. The game was every bit as ugly as the score indicates. The Jets were out-coached and out-classed on both sides of the football.

Well another week has come and gone, and another losing week is in the books, as I finished week 7 a disappointing 7-8. But don’t worry, I think this is the week we turn it all around! Six teams are on bye this week, which means there are 3 less games to pick, so I’m gonna go ahead and say that means I’m able to focus more on the games that are being played and deliver a winning week! Besides, this is the first week I’m posting this column on Sunday instead of Saturday, so perhaps the change in days will be good. Ok, you’re right.. it probably won’t matter at all. Oh well. Let’s get started. Continue reading “TOJ Week 8 NFL Gambling Advice & Picks”
