In the beginning of every week throughout the regular season, Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio will provide an overview of the upcoming New York Jets opponent. He kicks things off with a closer look at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Once the Tampa Bay Bucs and New York Jets completed their trade of Darrelle Revis, the Week 1 match-up took on a whole extra layer of meaning. What was once thought to be a battle between 2009 first round quarterbacks not named Matthew Stafford, was now morphed into the “Revis Bowl.” After a summer of beat writers with agendas ripping the team to shreds, the only thing that matters is upon us: a 1 PM kickoff on Sunday, September 8th at MetLife Stadium. Let’s get to know the opponent that will be lining up across from the New York Jets during Week 1.

Let’s dive into the football aspects of this matchup that have flew under the radar: Continue reading “New York Jets vs. Tampa Bay Bucs – Under The Radar Edition”

New York Jets Rookie Expectations

Cole Patterson on the expectations for the New York Jets rookie class this season

The NFL Draft provides an opportunity for teams to supplement rosters, improve on weak positions, and build a strong foundation for the future. While the hope for any draft class is that every player can become a contributing member of the team, that is far from reality. More often than not, a draft class will produce one or two starting caliber players at most. As the newly minted 53 man roster is composed today, the New York Jets look to be starting five rookies by year’s end. Is this level of rookie production a pipe dream or a realistic option?

TOJ – “What If”, Episode 2: New York Jets Don’t Draft Vernon Gholston

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio asks “What If” the New York Jets don’t draft Vernon Gholston in Episode 2 of this TOJ Series

There were many questionable draft choices made by now former New York Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum, but none more so than former Ohio State Buckeye Vernon Gholston. The 2007 Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year, Gholston was one of two players to record a sack against his draft’s top pick, left tackle Jake Long, in his entire college career. Gholston was drafted in 2008 sixth overall, and was expected to be the Jets primary pass rusher out of the 3-4 outside linebacker position. We all know what happened next: Gholston did not record a single sack during his time with the Jets, and was released after the 2011 season. From the time Gholston was drafted to the time he was released by the team, 606 players recorded at least one sack. What if the Jets never drafted Gholston?

Let’s breakdown the few roster battles that remain in the final upcoming preseason game: Continue reading “New York Jets Preseason – Final Roster Battles”
