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.

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.

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.

Connor Rogers on the New York Jets building their defense from the inside out
When the Jets selected Missouri defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson with the 13th overall pick they acquired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Darrelle Revis, the fan base was quite shocked. The Jets had taken defensive linemen with their first and third round picks in 2011 (Muhammad Wilkerson and Kenrick Ellis) and also with their first round pick in 2012 (Quinton Coples). With so much talent accumulated upfront now, Richardson’s development along with the rest of the interior line could possibly be the most vital aspect to the team’s future success on defense.
