Mike Donnelly with Week 3 gambling advice on all of the NFL action.
After going 8-8 last week on the heels of Week 1’s mini disaster, things are starting to look up for me as we head into Week 3. This is the time of the season when you start to get a feel for teams but unfortunately so do the Las Vegas bookmakers and the lines become increasingly difficult. Let’s see if we can go ahead and beat them this week and make a few bucks… you know, if gambling were legal and all. Continue reading “TOJ – Week 3 NFL Gambling Advice”
Mike O’Connor breaks down the key matchups in the New York Jets/Buffalo Bills week 3 game
Ah, the importance of match-ups in the NFL. Last week, we pointed out here at TOJ along with many other Jets fans how essential it was for them to do whatever it takes to stop the ball from consistently reaching Julian Edelman’s hands. While they have tried to prevent this, Edelman scorched the Jets with conversions all game long, and it was basically the nail in the Jets’ coffin. With match-ups ever so important in a game that should be evenly matched between the Jets and Bills, let’s take a look at some that could end up tilting the game either way.

The Turn On The Jets 12 Pack is back with predictions for the Jets vs. Bills, week 3 match-up
The New York Jets suffered their first loss of the season in week 2, in a particularly frustrating manner. A flood of negativity is generally going to follow the season’s initial loss, like nobody ever saw it coming. Unfortunately, the Jets weren’t going 16-0 this year. There are issues with this team that are going to rear their ugly head in many losses this season. A rookie quarterback. Inexperienced wide receivers. A slightly too pass happy offensive coordinator. Inconsistencies in the secondary. Holes on special teams. Regardless, the Jets have a very good chance to get above .500 this week in a critically (yes, even though it is only week 3) important divisional game.

Cole Patterson with a New York Jets Therapy Session on the wide receivers struggling to catch the football
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.
Diagnosis: Call in the Center for Disease Control. Don your HazMat suit. Stock up on the Stickum antiviral. The highly contagious scourge that is the “Dropsies” has infected the New York Jets. With a minimal incubation period, this contagion has spread like wild fire through the Jets receiving corps with dire effects.

Mike O’Connor grades out the New York Jets secondary in week and previews week 3
After a mixed bunch of grades in the secondary from the New York Jets’ Week One performance versus the Buccaneers, there plenty to keep an eye out for when the Jets squared off with Tom Brady and the Patriots last Thursday. The Pats entered the game with an extremely depleted group of pass catchers due to injuries sidelining Danny Amendola, Rob Gronkowski, and Zach Sudfeld. Yet still, the Jets’ secondary was bound to be tested just as intensely with Brady under center. Brady kept passing so much, in fact, that the Jets gave playing time to all of their rostered cornerbacks (six players) after we only saw four of them last week. Before we dive in, I recommend refreshing up on the grading scale and guidelines that I’ll be analyzing from below.
Grading Scale: Every week, I’ll be handing out simple letter grades to each member of the Jets’ secondary. Additionally, I will be charting and publishing their success rates in coverage for most of the other games in the season. Remember, a better grade for a lesser known player doesn’t necessarily mean that he played better than a starter who received a worse grade. The snap differentials will likely be drastic between a starter and a backup, so I’m just grading these players on the role they had. f a player was excellent despite his 10 snaps, than he’ll get that kind of favorable grade. NOTE: I include certain film examples to critique players. I won’t be posting many examples applauding players, since it’s typically already know or I’ve previously pointed out.

Mike Donnelly with a Turn On The Jets Stock Watch – Buying and Selling New York Jets, heading into Week 3
After a disappointing 3-point loss to the New England Patriots last Thursday, the New York Jets are facing an early season “must win” against the Buffalo Bills this week if they’re going to have any hope of putting together a winning season. This is a winnable game at home against a team very much in the same boat as them, with a rookie quarterback and a solid defense. In fact, it’s nearly the same exact defense since it’s being coached by Rex Ryan’s pupil, Mike Pettine. Let’s jump right in to this week’s Stock Watch and do some buying and selling as we prepare for week 3. Continue reading “Turn On The Jets Stock Watch – Week 3 Edition”

Let’s see how well the Jets’ offensive line performed in week 2.

Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio overviews the New York Jets Week 3 opponent, the Buffalo Bills, in this week’s version of TOJ’s Know Your Opponent.
Off a heartbreaking loss to the vulnerable New England Patriots on Thursday night, the New York Jets have had 10 days to prepare for Doug Marrone and the Buffalo Bills. The story-lines are a-plenty: for sociological purposes, this will be the 2nd time in Bills history that two African American quarterbacks face off against each other. From a coaching standpoint, Rex Ryan gets to have his offense go against his protege’s defense, as Mike Pettine returns to the scene of some of his most famous leaks (no pun intended.) And, from a strictly football standpoint, both teams are 1-1 and looking to notch their first win in the division. Let’s get to know the opponent the Jets will be facing this Sunday.
