New York Jets – Know Your Opponent (Week 2 – New England)

Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio overviews the New York Jets Week 2 opponent, the New England Patriots

It is always a different feeling when we reach a week where the New York Jets and New England Patriots square off. This week will be further different because the days when Rex would “tug on Superman’s cape”, as well as the days when New England seems unbeatable are gone. Yes, the “Patriot Way” took some hits this offseason, with the arrest of Aaron Hernandez and the loss of Wes Welker. However, we at TOJ still picked the Pats to win the AFC East, namely because of one Thomas Edward Patrick Brady, Junior. Let’s get to know this week’s opponent, an opponent we are all very familiar with.

New York Jets Secondary Grade Sheet – Week One

Mike O’Connor breaks down the New York Jets secondary’s performance in the week 1

Every week throughout the season Mike O’Connor will break down the performance of the New York Jets secondary. Here is his take on week 1 

With so much confidence in the New York Jets front seven all summer and heading into the regular season, the re-shaped secondary that was once undoubtedly the Jets’ biggest strength has been somewhat overlooked. Even heading into the week of preparation for Week One, most expected the Jets’ primary focus to be on the Bucs’ biggest game-breaker on offense: running back Doug Martin.  s we learned with the Jets’ close win, sometimes an offensive weapon’s greatest effect is to draw focus away from the rest of the team.

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”

TOJ – New York Jets Tight End Grade Sheet (Week 1)

Cole Patterson grades out the New York Jets tight ends for their week 1 performance

Every week Cole Patterson will break down the performance of the New York Jets tight ends. Here is his take on week one. 

Going into the offseason, anyone claiming a Jets’ tight end would lead the team in receiving week one would be immediately informed of a bridge for sale. Yet, here we stand, following a roller coaster of a win and the Jets tight ends may have out performed all other position groups (excluding the defensive line).

Game Balls: Jets vs. Bucs “Holy S@#!t”

Dan Marcus hands out game balls for the New York Jets week 1 win over the Tampa Bay Bucs

This is marks the first regular season edition of “Game Balls” that almost never was as the New York Jets snatched defeat from the jaws of victory and victory from the jaws of defeat in the span of about two minutes. I never thought that I would see a team “out-Jets” the Jets but a little dose of Greg Schiano was apparently what the doctor ordered and without further ado, it is time to paint em’ up

TOJ – New York Jets Running Back Grade Sheet (Week 1)

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio grades the New York Jets running backs from Week 1

Every week Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio will grade out the New York Jets running back’s performance. Here is his take after the Jets week 1 victory over Tampa 

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.

Running Backs: Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell, Tommy Bohanon
Total Carries: 22
Rushing Yards: 34
Yards Per Carry: 1.5
Total Touches: 27
Total Yards: 90
Yards Per Touch: 3.3
Touchdowns: 0
