Broadway Carousel: Bench Geno Smith?

After a turnover filled Sunday afternoon in Nashville, Tennessee, outrage has begun in the Geno Smith era. Not your Josh Freeman-Greg Schiano type outrage, but rather your typical New York Jets outrage. The type that the team isn’t even aware of because it’s created by know-it-all media types and a schizophrenic fan base. “The Jets need a game manager”, “Start Matt Simms”, “Give Brady Quinn a shot”, “Pull Geno, he doesn’t have what it takes”, just to throw around a couple of intelligent quotes I stumbled upon yesterday. Are we really talking about creating a broadway carousel in New York?  Continue reading “Broadway Carousel: Bench Geno Smith?”

New York Jets – Week 3 Linebacker Grade Sheet

Connor Rogers grades out the New York Jets linebackers in week 3

As the weeks pass us by, the New York Jets season tends to get more interesting. For a team that was not even supposed to “compete”, they look quite impressive. A large portion of this impressive play can be attributed to the linebacking core, a vicious crew that seem to be every star halfback’s worst nightmare. Let’s grade out the linebacker’s performances from week 3 against the Buffalo Bills. Continue reading “New York Jets – Week 3 Linebacker Grade Sheet”

Week 3 – New York Jets vs. Buffalo Bills Halftime Report

Half time report on the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills

 What an exciting first half of football with the Jets leading the Bills 17-6. Geno Smith is airing it out against a beat up Bills secondary, the Jets defense is trying to out-do the 2009 team, and this offense is actually portraying a real aerial NFL offense. With all of these nice things, the Bills are still right in this game thanks to a Geno Smith interception and Calvin Pace missing key tackles. Let’s run down a wild first half of Jets-Bills football.

New York Jets Week Two – Linebackers Grade Sheet

Connor Rogers grades out the New York Jets linebackers in week 2

After an impressive week one performance against one of the better running backs in the league in Doug Martin, the New York Jets linebackers were excellent again. I was cautious with my grading after week one, but after two weeks of solid play they deserve the praise. While the inside linebackers are looking like two of the best run stuffers in the league after two shutdown weeks, the outside linebackers have been inconsistent. With the help of Quinton Coples returning this week against Buffalo, the Jets should have one of the better front sevens in the AFC. Let’s grade out this past week’s performances. Continue reading “New York Jets Week Two – Linebackers Grade Sheet”

New York Jets Week One – Linebackers Grade Sheet

Connor Rogers grades out the New York Jets Linebackers performance in week one

Every week Staff Writer Connor Rogers will grade out the performance of the New York Jets linebackers. Here is his take on week one – 

Week one was a huge a test for the Jets linebackers, facing Tampa Bay and their elite running back Doug Martin. Starters David Harris and Calvin Pace are the two returning veterans, both ironically coming off of very poor seasons. Newcomer Antwan Barnes was signed as a pass rush specialist in the offseason. 2012 3rd round draft pick Demario Davis is starting on the inside next to Harris, replacing Bart Scott. With starting outside linebacker Quinton Coples on the shelf for week one, Garret McIntyre slid into the base defense primarily for first and second downs. Let’s grade out the linebackers performances. Continue reading “New York Jets Week One – Linebackers Grade Sheet”

New York Jets vs. Tampa Bay Bucs – Under The Radar Edition

Connor Rogers looks at under the radar aspects of the New York Jets week 1 match-up against the Tampa Bay Bucs

The preseason is finally over and as always the mood is tense in New York Jets land. The media is continuously attacking Rex Ryan (for going to his son’s college football game) and every “analyst” has the Jets winning 2 games. Shocking? Not in the slightest bit. With all of this smoke covering up what really matters (the Jets are a football team, not a soap opera) there is a very important matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday. Let’s dive into the football aspects of this matchup that have flew under the radar: Continue reading “New York Jets vs. Tampa Bay Bucs – Under The Radar Edition”

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”
