A four part series. Covers four offensive positions of need for the New York Jets (QB, WR, TE, & G), free agent scouting reports, and draft options.
The New York Jets could have as many as twelve draft picks in 2014. As they stand right now, the Jets have $25,861,726 in cap space. With expected cuts of Santonio Holmes, Mark Sanchez, and Antonio Cromartie, the Jets should have $51,911,726 in cap space. That gives them a lot of room to work with.
This is a four part series. It will cover four offensive positions of need (QB, WR, TE, & G), free agent scouting reports, and draft options. This week, guard.

Dan Marcus hands out game balls for the Jets 37-27 win over the Oakland Raiders
Well it wasn’t pretty but the Jets finally got off the schneid after going over a month without winning a football game, the offense came to life against a beleaguered Raiders team and carried the Jets to a much needed “W.” As far as what this means in the grand scheme of things, as of right now, not a whole hell of a lot but that could all change with a win at Carolina but let’s not hold our breaths. Without further preamble let’s paint up some Game Balls:

Initial reaction to the New York Jets 37-27 win over the Oakland Raiders, which snapped their three game losing streak
While today was a literal win for the New York Jets, 37-27 over the Oakland Raiders, the more important development was the positive performance of rookie quarterback Geno Smith and rookie cornerback Dee Milliner. Keeping in mind they were playing a mediocre team, the Jets had a strong offensive and special teams performance today, with a disappointing outing defensively. A win is a win and it was nice to see them snap their three game losing streak, especially while putting up nearly twice as many points in a single game than they did the past three games combined.

Week 13 was a pretty crappy schedule from top to bottom and I didn’t have a very good read on it, so I consider myself lucky to have finished 7-8-1 on the week. This week I feel much better about my chances to have a big week and there are actually a few games I absolutely love. Like, love a lot. Love almost as much as Jeff Cumberland loves dropping passes… ok, well maybe not that much. Let’s got on with the show. Continue reading “TOJ Week 14 NFL Gambling Advice and Picks”
The Oakland Raiders come into Metlife Stadium on Sunday to face the skidding New York Jets. Both teams have relatively young players starting in key positions, leading to inconsistent play all season. As the Jets playoff hopes continue to fade due to an anemic offense, Oakland is struggling to create a blueprint for their future. Both teams have struggled with inconsistent quarterback play and secondary problems all season, which is often a recipe for disaster. Let’s break down what to watch for in this Sunday afternoon match up. Continue reading “Jets vs Raiders: The Spotlight”
Each week I will be reviewing the coaches’ tape from the previous week’s game and grading out the performance of the New York Jets Offensive Line.

Joe Caporoso on the ongoing collapse of the New York Jets offense
Nobody had high expectations for the New York Jets offense heading into the 2013 season, nor should they have. They had question marks at nearly every position, including most prominently at quarterback where rookie Geno Smith was coming off a porous pre-season. However, they were passably average during the first nine games of the season. However, over the last three weeks they have been the league’s worst offense by any meaningful statistic and from a simple eye test. What happened and are there any solutions for the final four games?

The truth is, there weren’t many bright spots in Sunday’s drubbing at the hands of division rival Miami. Rex Ryan’s team struggled once again to produce even a semblance of an NFL offense. While the majority of the blame for this one has to be deflected to arguably the most anemic offense in football, the defense also played a role, continuing to prove that it’s far from the “elite” level we have all come to expect.
