New York Jets Training Camp Battles: Halfback Edition

Connor Rogers on the New York Jets training camp battle at running back

We continue our series on the New York Jets training camp battles, taking a look at the halfback position. After quarterback, the halfback competition seems to pack the most drama and intensity. Between the newcomers, the unproven, and those trying to save their career, this is one competition that will look much different by preseason’s end than it does at the moment. Let’s examine the current candidates –

New York Jets – Early Positive Buzz Out Of Cortland?

The New York Jets first weekend of practice has produced positive buzz from expected…and unexpected sources

The New York Jets wrapped up their first weekend of training camp today with their inaugural padded practice, despite a brief weather delay.

New York Jets Training Camp Battles – Cornerback Edition

Connor Rogers on the New York Jets training camp battle at the cornerback position

As training camp is officially in full swing, the theme this year under new general manager John Idzik seems to be “competition.” Recently in a press conference Rex Ryan said the only guaranteed starters are Antonio Cromartie, David Harris, D’Brickashaw Ferguson, and Nick Mangold (not cool leaving Muhammad Wilkerson out Rex, not cool at all). After Antonio Cromartie, the Jets cornerback depth is locked into a brutal battle for the second spot.

New York Jets – Examining Rex Ryan’s Tenure As Head Coach

Dalbin Osorio examines the job done by New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan through his first four years. Will this be his last?

“I’m a hell of a lot better football coach than I’m given credit for. I don’t care. I don’t need the credit. But I can tell you one thing, when it’s said and done, they’ll look back and say, ‘Oh man, this dude can coach his butt off.’ And you know what? It’s true. And I’ll let the people that know best talk on my behalf about the kind of coach I am. I don’t have to brag, even though statistically, I can brag about anything I’ve ever done defensively.”

In a recent poll released by Pete Prisco of CBS Sports that set fire to Twitter, Rex Ryan ws named the 14th best head coach in the NFL. Rex was placed behind a legend in Marvin Lewis (79-80 in his tenure in Cincinatti, and 0-4 in the playoffs) and right ahead of a guru in Pete Carroll (two 10+ win seasons in seven years as a head coach). Other coaches listed above him were the incomporable John Fox (coach of a 1-15 team in Carolina that netted them the number one pick in the draft in 2011) and the Canton-bound Mike Shanahan (5 seasons of 10 or more victories in the last 13 seasons, and one playoff victory during that span). Couple that with Rex apparently being on the hot seat and being labeled a quintissential “lame duck” coach, we at TOJ felt it was an appropriate time to look at the man’s legacy.

New York Jets Therapy Sessions: PTSD – Post Tebow Stress Disorder

Cole Patterson continues his New York Jets Therapy Sessions with a look at Post-Tebow Stress Disorder

In “New York Jets Therapy Session” Cole Patterson examines a particular issue that the New York Jets face in a metaphorical therapy scenario. Treatments are prescribed from the perspective of a position of control with the franchise or through actions that have already been taken. Today’s edition focuses on Post Tebow Stress Disorder.

Diagnosis: The National Institute of Mental health says that PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) “develops after a terrifying ordeal that involved physical harm or the threat of physical harm.” The other PTSD, Post Tebow Stress Disorder, occurs under very similar circumstances. The stress and fear experienced during the brief “Tebow-Era” in Florham Park may have scarred both fans and the team.
