Jets-Dolphins Match Up Central

Mike O’Connor breaks down the match-ups for today’s game between the Jets and the Dolphins.

Today should be interesting to say the least.  The Jets and Dolphins face each other with enough ongoing issues to count on more than two hands, whether it be football related or the Dolphins’ off the field distractions. Regardless, both teams while lagging  little bit are still in the thick of the AFC playoff picture somehow. It may look like a boring slate on paper to some, but there’s actually a lot on the line today for these two teams on the bubble.

New York Jets Defensive Line Grade Sheet: Week 12

Frank Giasone breaks down the tape on the Jets defensive line in week 12

With each Jets loss this season, I find myself sitting down at my computer and harping on the fact that the Jets’ pass rush was once again essentially sabotaged by the declining play of the secondary. It’s become a pretty regular occurrence this season, as opposing offenses have adjusted their game plans to limit the Jets pass rushing opportunities.

And while it wasn’t as prominent in Sunday’s loss at Baltimore as it has been in other losses this season, the issue did rear its head in a couple of extremely unfortunate situations.

So instead of just talking about it again this week, I figured it best to actually show it.

New York Jets – Week 12 Linebacker Grades

After an abysmal performance in Buffalo, the Jets needed a bounce back win in Baltimore. Unfortunately for Gang Green, the offense came out quite flat once again. On the flip side, the front seven was dominate and continues to beg their secondary for some help. The Ravens did not exactly light up the scoreboard but an anemic offensive performance from the entire Jets offense gave the team no chance to win. Let’s grade out the linebackers, a consistent bright spot for this young squad. Continue reading “New York Jets – Week 12 Linebacker Grades”

TOJ – New York Jets Tight End Grade Sheet (Week 12)

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

Grading Scale: Tight end is an interesting position to grade out, given that they are responsible for both receiving and blocking. As receivers in the West Coast Offense, tight ends will be asked to line up anywhere from slot, to split end, to flanker and be responsible for the entire route tree. As blockers in the offense, they will be assigned delayed releases, one-on-one blocks, or simply to chip a pass rusher. With these roles in mind, it is difficult to create a complex grading scale based on YPC or blocking, as the play may conclude before the tight end’s true role on the play is clear. All of that is to say, because the tight end position is so enigmatic (particularly in a WCO) a simple letter based grading scale is best employed. 

  • A = Entirely positive impact
  • B = Consistent positive impact, few minor mistakes
  • C = Equal level of positive and negative impact, average, or made no impact plays whatsoever
  • D = Mostly negative impact, with room for improvement
  • F = Entirely negative impact

New York Jets Running Backs Grade Sheet (Week 12)

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio grades the New York Jets running backs after Week 12.

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 Recreation Football – Week 12 Passing Game Breakdown

Joe Caporoso breaks down the New York Jets passing game in week 12

The New York Jets passing game was an unmitigated disaster in week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens. After going through the tape, this was a unit wide failure that likely trickles down from Rex Ryan’s input to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and includes unsteady play from the quarterback, offensive line, tight ends, running backs and wide receivers. It is easy to immediately assess the bulk of the blame on Smith at quarterback and while he did not play well this past Sunday and hasn’t played well the past month, the tape tells a much more complex story. Let’s work through Smith’s dropbacks and see what we find:
