Ryan Fitzpatrick will enter 2015 as the starting quarterback for the New York Jets. With this information in hand, we at Turn On the Jets present the New York Jets Debate Club, an argument/counter-argument format, to best expound the various cases. Dalbin Osorio  and Cole Patterson tee off.

Dan Quinn: New York Jets Bound?

The New York Jets plan to interview Seahawks DC Dan Quinn this weekend, Cole Patterson gives more background on arguably their top candidate

The New York Jets have wiped the slate clean. Woody Johnson’s purge has left a vacuum in Florham Park. After six years, the echoes of Rex Ryan’s bombast have quickly faded away. A fresh, new voice is expected to lead Gang Green into battle come 2015. However, this presumed paragon of change may not be so unfamiliar. Enter arguably their top head coaching candidate: Dan Quinn.

TOJ – New York Jets Tight End Grade Sheet (Week 7)

Cole Patterson breaks down the recent usage of Jace Amaro, Jeff Cumberland and Zach Sudfeld by the New York Jets

Every week Cole Patterson will break down the performance of the New York Jets tight ends. Here is his take on week seven. 

Grading Scale: Tight end is an interesting position to grade out, given that they are responsible for both receiving and blocking. As receivers in this offense, tight ends will be asked to line up anywhere from slot, to split end, to flanker and be responsible for the entire route tree. As blockers in the offense, they will be assigned delayed releases, one-on-one blocks, or simply to chip a pass rusher. With these roles in mind, it is difficult to create a complex grading scale based on YPC or blocking, as the play may conclude before the tight end’s true role on the play is clear. All of that is to say, because the tight end position is so enigmatic, a simple letter based grading scale is best employed. 

  • A = Entirely positive impact
  • B = Consistent positive impact, few minor mistakes
  • C = Equal level of positive and negative impact, average, or made no impact plays whatsoever
  • D = Mostly negative impact, with room for improvement
  • F = Entirely negative impact

TOJ – New York Jets Tight End Grade Sheet (Week 5): The Case for Jace

Cole Patterson zeros in on the New York Jets best option at tight end, Jace Amaro.

Normally, in this post, I go over the individual performances of the New York Jets tight ends: Jeff Cumberland, Jace Amaro, and Zach Sudfeld. If you’ve been keeping track or following my grade sheets you’ll know that, to this point in the season, the tight ends have been making little to no impact on paper. In fact, outside of dropping a few balls and whiffing a few key blocks, you may not even know they were on the field. Save one that is, enter: Jace Amaro.
