Dalbin Osorio wrote his initial reaction to Jets vs. Dolphins about 2 hours before kickoff. It held up well!
On one sideline stood Adam Gase who, after getting former Jets General Manager Mike Maccagnan fired, oversaw the exodus of former All-Pro LeVeon Bell and defensive cornerstone Safety Jamal Adams. He’s, also, gutted QB Sam Darnold of any confidence he had left all while tailoring his offense around WR Chris Hogan and RB Frank Gore. If there is a deity, he only has 11 weeks left as the Jets Head Coach.
Dalbin Osorio with initial reaction to the New York Jets trading Jamal Adams
Yesterday was really the last straw, huh? You could kind of see the writing on the wall coming with Jamal Adams, what with the Jets all-pro safety just going scorched earth on his head coach and general manager: lets not forget this is the same coach he gave a vote of confidence to at the end of the season, after he threw a tantrum because his general manager had the unmitigated gall to answer the phone when teams recognized his talent and wanted to trade for him. We may never know what really happened to lead the Jets to this point, today, where on July 25th they sent their best draft pick since Darrelle Revis packing.
Dalbin Osorio with thoughts on the recent news around New York Jets Owner Woody Johnson
Hey Mr. Johnson,
You don’t know who I am: we met 5 years ago at the last Jets game I went to, and you were very kind and even took a picture with a friend of mine and I at a tailgate. I’ve contributed a very miniscule amount to the fortune you’ve amassed while being the owner of my favorite American football team. You’ve overseen some of my favorite sports moments, though, and I generally think you have done a decent job. You, also, said we can never have enough Tebow, so you’ve authored some of my least favorite sports moments too.
Dalbin Osorio on why the New York Jets should Jamal Adams, now
Jamal Adams is the best safety in football. Jamal Adams plays a traditionally low-impact position. Jamal Adams deserves to be paid as the best safety in the league. Jamal Adams also has this year and his option year left on his rookie contract. Jamal Adams says he’s allergic to losing. Jamal Adams has been the best drafted player on a team that’s never had a winning season. Jamal Adams said he was built different. Jamal Adams is proving every day that he’s not. I wanted the Jets to draft Jamal Adams. I now think the Jets need to trade Jamal Adams.
Dalbin Osorio with initial reaction to the New York Jets signing DB Logan Ryan
After trading a sixth rounder for former 2nd rounder Quincy Wilson, signing Pierre Desir, re-signing Brian Poole, and drafting UVA standout Bryce Hall you’d think the work in the cornerback room for the Jets was done. Joe Douglas laughs at your assumptions, as its been reported that the New York Jets are signing former Titans Cornerback Logan Ryan.
Dalbin Osorio with a day two preview for the New York Jets in the 2020 NFL Draft
With the first round in the books, and the Jets filling their massive hole at left tackle with a massive man in Mekhi Becton, all eyes turn to day two and three. This is where Joe Douglas can really make the moves he needs to try and end an almost decade-length playoff drought. The Jets enter day 2 with the following needs unfilled: Wide Receiver, EDGE, and Cornerback. They could, also, fortify their Interior Offensive Line group by taking a guard or adding a Center and moving newly-signed Center Connor McGovern to guard. Here’s 4 long-form thoughts that can serve as a guide for Day 2, and then a day 2 mock draft for Gang Green.

Dalbin Osorio ranks the top centers and defensive linemen in the NFL Draft and we grade your mock!
Another day, another #PickSix, and today you get two with a heavy dosing of (to quote Big E of the New Day) #ManMeat! This time, Team #TOJ continues our draft coverage with the top six Centers and Interior Defensive Linemen in the 2020 NFL Draft. The New York Jets signed an above average Center in free agency, but that Center can also play guard so you could see them take a whack at adding either a starting-caliber C that can then allow them to move Connor McGovern to guard. Make no mistake, this is a very good Center class with 8 Centers grading out to potential long-term starters in my opinion.
In regards to interior defensive linemen, no pick that the Jets possess should be used on an interior defensive lineman. Seriously, they are all the way good on that position group. However, on the off-chance that Joe Douglas has allowed Mike Maccagnan to run the draft, its important we familiarize ourselves with some names.
Like a newly-retired Eli Manning errant throw, lets return this pick six.

Whereas the Jets tackle group isn’t the best, the OG group has a bit more potential with a returning Alex Lewis, healthy Brian Winters, newly signed Greg Van Roten, and the potential for Connor McGovern to slide over to one of the starting guard spots should they Jets add a Center. The good thing about this draft is that there are a lot of players who offer positional flexibility, and can play Center and Guard.

Dalbin Osorio ranks the top offensive tackles in the 2020 NFL Draft and we grade your mock!
As currently constructed, the Jets have the worst starting tackles in football hands down in George Fant and Chuma Edoga. Joe Douglas was smart to sign Connor McGovern, one of the better Centers in the NFL, but the OL rebuild is far from finished. Other than WR, this is the only logical position group to be the pick at 11.
