New York Jets Chemistry Class: The QB-WR Bond

Cole Patterson on the developing chemistry of New York Jets quarterbacks and wide receivers

When talking about chemistry in football, one does not intend to conjure images of beakers, Bunsen burners, and covalent bonds. It is another kind of bond that is being addressed, the kind that is exemplified by the relationship between a quarterback and his favorite target. The New York Jets may have lucked out when drafting Geno Smith because of the rapid rapport that he seems to have developed with New York’s top targets.

TOJ – “What If” Series, Episode 1: New York Jets Don’t Trade Up For QB Mark Sanchez

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio asks “What If?” – The New York Jets Didn’t Trade Up For QB Mark Sanchez.

Missing on a first round quarterback, especially one drafted by a rookie Head Coach to be “the man” for your franchise going forward, is probably the quickest way to get fired. John Harbaugh and Mike Smith attached their coaching careers to Joe Flacco and Matt Ryan respectively, and have had varying degrees of success with Flacco leading the Ravens to a Super Bowl this past year and Ryan winning his first playoff game. It is safe to say that Chuck Pagano will be in Indianapolis as long as Andrew Luck produces at the level he’s expected to, and the same came be said about Joe Philbin and Ryan Tannehill. This is why Jim Harbaugh drafted Colin Kaepernick, albeit in the 2nd round, and wasn’t hesitant to hand the reins to Kap despite Alex Smith completing 70% of his passes and leading the 49ers to an 8-1 record upon injury. You want your guy leading your team.

New York Jets Therapy Sessions: Body Dysmorphic Disorder

Cole Patterson with another New York Jets Therapy Session, focusing on Jets players who removed weight this off-season

Cole Patterson continues his New York Jets Therapy Session series. Make sure to check for these every Thursday and to give him a follow on Twitter

This is more of an observation of a phenomenon than a true diagnosis of an issue. It has become an increasingly apparent, NFL-wide trend for players to focus on playing weight. While concern over playing weight is an issue as old as organized sports, it seems that increased levels of obsessiveness over the measurable are occurring league wide, with the New York Jets representing a microcosm of the phenomenon. This obsession with weight is reminiscent of the psychological condition, Body Dysmorphic Disorder.

New York Jets – Preseason Week 2 Running Back Power Rankings

Connor Rogers ranks the New York Jets running backs heading into week 2 of the pre-season

The first preseason game has come and gone, showing us very little of what to expect from the New York Jets running backs. Chris Ivory, Joe McKnight, and Lex Hilliard did not play due to injuries. Mike Goodson’s GPS is still re-routing him as he struggles to find Cortland, which left the Jets with Bilal Powell, seventh round draft pick Tommy Bohanon, and mostly camp bodies to receive the bulk of carries. Let’s see how things are shaping up. Continue reading “New York Jets – Preseason Week 2 Running Back Power Rankings”

Turn On The Jets Film Room: New York Jets Safety Jaiquawn Jarrett

Mike O’Connor breaks down the film on New York Jets safety Jaiquawn Jarrett from his Temple days. Can he live up to his sudden hype?

Whether you have come to grips with it or not, this 2013 New York Jets are essentially starting from scratch at numerous positions due to their depleted talent level heading into the year. As a result, multiple players are going to be given larger roles and opportunities than their current talent and development levels merit. This process will find some key pieces for the Jets in the future, while also weeding out those who aren’t going to stick.
