The Tight End Conundrum of the New York Jets

Cole Patterson on the New York Jets issues at tight end and what free agent options are still out there

Ahhhh the rebuilding year. Another failed campaign means an eager fan base calling for heads and demanding a quick and timely rebuild. There are many pillars to a successful rebuild: management, coaching, and the all important on field talent (to name a few). It is the talent that most fans tend to harp on and at no position on the New York Jets’ roster is there less of it than at tight end. New general manager John Idzik has deftly filled many perceived holes on the roster including: quarterback, running back, and offensive line. He’s brought in depth players at linebacker and fostered competition with talented defenders early in the draft. However, tight end is one of the spots that he seems to have neglected.

New York Jets Fans – Why Do We Hate This Man?

Daniel Marcus explores New York Jets fans hatred of Mark Sanchez

Turn On The Jets is happy to welcome our newest writer Daniel Marcus. Make sure to give him a follow on Twitter

Jets fans, it’s time to have a talk, a heart-to-heart so to speak. It occurred to me the other day that there has not been a New York Jet in recent memory that sparks such (in my opinion) undue animosity than beleaguered soon-to-be former Starting Quarterback, Mark Sanchez. I can understand why you would want to see him quartered and hung for the mind-boggling decisions he often makes on the field but there have been litany of terrible Jets QB’s in the past that have not received anything that resembles the treatment Sanchez has experienced during his tenure as the Jets signal-caller.

Mays has the whole NFL to work with, we only have the Goddamn Jets…now there is a challenge, step your game up Mays!

Turn On The Jets Film Room – Oday Aboushi: Guard or Tackle?

Mike Nolan steps into the TOJ Film Room to take a look at Rookie OL Oday Aboushi to determine where he might fit in the Jets offense.

If you search the internet for anything about Oday Aboushi, you will find a lot more hits than the typical 5th round pick. Most of the articles are about how he is one of the first Palestinian-Americans to play in the NFL.  The more I read about Oday Aboushi the more impressed I am with him as a person. In fact, he was once honored at the US State Department by Hillary Clinton for being an inspirational Muslim athlete. Now that the dust has settled in the aftermath of the NFL Draft and Jets fans have learned a little bit about who Oday Aboushi is as a person, it is time to figure out who he is as a player and where he might be able to fit in the Jets’ offense.
