First off, I wanted to apologize to you guys for being so erratic with this column, the Jets’ swoon had me in some states but we’re back and better than ever this week, praying for a miracle and some help to keep watching meaningful football. Last week was an improvement in some respects but the Jets have yet to get it going in all three phases and have a tall order in front of them going against a Panthers team that is coming off a drubbing in the Super Dome and needs a win to keep pace in the playoff race. We’ll get into it after the jump but here’s everything you need to know as the Jets head to Carolina: Continue reading “Super Fast Saturday: “A Wing and a Prayer””
Joe Caporoso reviews “Collision Low Crossers” by Nicholas Dawidoff. A must read for any Jets fan
I just finished up Collision Low Crossers by Nicholas Dawidoff, which I highly recommend for any New York Jets fan. Dawidoff spent the entire 2011 season with the team, predominantly with the defensive coaching staff. This book provides unparalleled access and a unique perspective since the author is not a sportswriter and came in with limited knowledge of football. Here are a few observations but again, go read it yourself…

Match-up thoughts on the New York Jets week 15 do or die match-up with the Carolina Panthers
A few match-up thoughts on the New York Jets week 15 match-up against the heavily favored Carolina Panthers, which is a do or die game for the team’s small playoff chances.
Connor Rogers grades the Jets linebackers from their win over the Raiders.
The Jets pulled off a bounce back win at home against the Oakland Raiders in week 14. After witnessing an anemic offense produce zero touchdowns for two straight weeks, the defense slowly looked gassed. While the win against the Raiders was a step in the right direction, the once impenetrable run defense has taken a step back. They allowed a 63 yard touchdown run to fourth string running back Marcel Reece and let him run for over 120 yards on the day. Overall it was an up and down day for the linebacker crew, lets grade them out. Continue reading “New York Jets – Week 14 Linebacker Grades”

I grade each play on a 1 to 5 scale. Loss of yardage is rated a 0, no gain is rated a 1, a gain of 1-3 yards is rated a 2, gains of 4-6 are rated a 3, gains of 7-9 yards or are rated a 4, and gains of 10+ yards are rated a 5. TDs increase your overall grade by 10 points, and fumbles decrease your score by -5. I do it like this to factor in receptions, reward positive plays accordingly, and penalize negative plays accordingly. The total from the grades of each individual play are then converted to letter grades, with As representing (50 or higher), Bs (39-49), Cs (29-39), Ds (19-29), and Fs (0-18) being given out for total performance). Performance of the offensive line and available running space is also factored in.
