TOJ – Year In Review (New York Jets Quarterback Geno Smith)

TOJ’s Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio breaks down New York Jets Quarterback Geno Smith in TOJ’s Year In Review.

“Well, I want to come in with the right mentality, I want to come in and work and I’m going to make sure I put my best foot forward. I’m going to be dedicated and try and come in and be a leader, try and help my team get better and win games.”- New York Jets Quarterback Geno Smith after the Jets drafted him in the second round.

TOJ- New York Jets Running Back Grade Sheet Week 16

Grading Scale

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.

New York Jets Debate Club: Is Rex Ryan The Right Man for the Job?

New York Jets Debate Club: Cole Patterson and Dalbin Osorio go back and forth on the head coaching conundrum facing the 2014 New York Jets

The New York Jets unlikely roller coaster ride to December relevancy came to an end yesterday with a Baltimore win. Understandably, the focus of the fan-base has already shifted to the offseason. WIth over $40 million in cap space and a full stock of draft picks, change is inevitable. However, much of the conversation has switched to Rex Ryan and the Jets future at head coach. The debate over wether Rex remains the head man of the franchise will dominate the landscape until a decision is made, one way or another. While John Idzik and Woody Johnson have likely already made their decision, it is important for the public to understand the debate, the reasoning, behind the impending decision. With that in mind, we at Turn On the Jets offer an argument/counter-argument format to best expound the various cases. Dalbin Osorio will argue in favor of extending Rex Ryan and Cole Patterson will argue for change.

For further reading on the head coaching debate, see Joe Caporoso and Dan Marcus‘ inspired debate: The Future Is Bright But Should Rex Ryan Be Part Of It?
