Cole Patterson grades out the New York Jets tight ends in week 2
Every week Cole Patterson will break down the performance of the New York Jets tight ends. Here is his take on week two.
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

TJ Rosenthal on the New York Jets moving on from the their tough defeat in New England and preparing for Buffalo in week 3
Ok, so week 1 didn’t exactly go as planned as the games I liked the most let me down. The Giants and Panthers really let me down with late cover blowing, as DeAngelo Williams fumbled late inside the 20 and Eli Manning threw a pick 6. Oh well, time to bounce back here in week 2. Let’s get to it.
Jets +12.5 @ Patriots – 1 for 1 this week! Things are turning around! Continue reading “TOJ – Week 2 NFL Gambling Advice”
Dalbin Osorio on the end of the New York Jets/Mark Sanchez union
I’ve been a Jets fan my entire life. They are the only team that I’ve rooted for without switching allegiances. I liked the Braves when the Yankees were terrible, cheered for Michael Jordan before Marc Cuban traded Robert “Tractor” Traylor for a skinny kid from Germany named Dirk Nowitzki, and liked the Blackhawks before Messier bought the Cup back to Gotham. I’ve been a fan of teams that win, but the Jets have been the lovable losers of my fandom. That is, until Bill Parcells took that short drive down I-95, brought Curtis Martin with him, and changed the game around here. 12-4 and a Super Bowl were expected during those Parcells years until Testaverde tore his ACL. Sadly, the Parcells era ended the day Bill Belichick quit on becoming the HC of the NYJ. I was hurt, sure, but the Yankees started winning in ’96, ’98 brought the Jets on the brink of the Super Bowl, and Jordan pushed off of Byron Russell to give the Bulls a sixth title. My other teams numbed me from Jets disappointment.

Initial reaction to the New York Jets disappointing loss to the New England Patriots, 13-10
Before the season, many reasonable people would have signed up for the New York Jets being 1-1 after two games, with a 13-10 loss in New England on a short week. However, that doesn’t ease the immediate sting of losing a very winnable game to your rivals. Tonight’s game was there for the taking but the Jets made one too many mistakes and not enough plays. Turnovers. Dropped passes. Questionable play calls. Blown coverages. No loss to New England is easy to stomach but the Jets had a real chance to be 2-0 tonight and they missed it.

Mike O’Connor breaks down the key match-ups in the Jets/Patriots game tonight
Despite the fact that it still feels like the New York Jets played yesterday, the game tonight seems like an entirely new one with the injuries that have arisen since last Sunday.
A would-be grudge match has become even more competitive with Shane Vereen and Zach Sudfeld, Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola out. The Jets took a hit when they lost Jeremy Kerley because of his concussion, but they still have to be optimistic with how the Pats’ depth chart is thinning out.

Mike Donnelly with a Turn On The Jets Stock Watch previewing Jets vs. Patriots tonight
Just like the New York Jets as a team only had a brief time to reflect on the Tampa Bay game before moving on to Patriots Week, we here at TOJ were in the same boat. The week 1 victory was awesome, and allowed Jets fans to rub it in the faces of all the “experts” who predicted 42-0 losses and 0-16 seasons, but now it is time to look ahead to bigger and better things. The Patriots are perhaps more vulnerable than we’ve seen them in the past decade with a ton of injuries, and they could be ripe for an upset. Today I’ll be buying and selling what we saw in the first game of the season and what we can expect tonight against Tom Brady and co.

The Turn On The Jets 12 Pack with predictions for Jets vs. Patriots
The results of week 1 in the NFL frequently lead to harsh overreactions of both the positive and negative manner. You never want to invest too much into a single game. The Philadelphia Eagles may not score 2,000 points this season, for example. David Wilson will probably fumble less than 30 times in 2013…probably. The defending Super Bowl Champs aren’t heading to a 2-14 year where they allow 50 points on a weekly basis. As for our New York Jets, there is reason for tempered optimism.
