TOJ Week 12 NFL Gambling Advice and Picks

Well, that hot streak sure was fun while it lasted. Then week 11 happened and crushed me in a monster way. I went just 5-8-2 and even worse, lost what I called my favorite pick of the season so far as the Patriots lost to the referees — uhh, I mean the Panthers on Monday night. Actually, it’s not really fair to say the refs cost them that game (even though they did) because the Patriots pretty much beat themselves. Their secondary is the gold standard when it comes to proving that Pro Football Focus is merely a tool and not the gospel when it comes to grading football players because despite their high rankings, they are pretty crappy, and Fumbles Ridley is just a horrible player. Can you tell I’m still bitter about that game? Let’s just move on to week 12… Continue reading “TOJ Week 12 NFL Gambling Advice and Picks”

Super Fast Friday: “Eating Crow”

Dan Marcus goes Super Fast Friday to prepare you for Jets/Ravens

The Jets made NFL history last Sunday by becoming the most inconsistent team in league history as the first team to alternate wins and losses through their first 10 games. One can only hope that the trend continues, if only for one more week as the Jets need to bounce back against the Raven in order to stay competitive in the AFC. I won’t rehash the all-too-fresh memories of last week’s debacle so here’s everything you need to know for this Sunday’s game against the Ravens:

New York Jets Running Backs Grade Sheet (Week 11)

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio grades the New York Jets running backs after Week 11.

Grading Scale

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.

New York Jets Week 11 – Linebacker Grades

The Jets had two weeks to prepare for the Buffalo Bills after an impressive win over the New Orleans Saints. Sounds like a formula for success, right? Unfortunately, the team had trouble on both sides of the ball all day long on Sunday. One of the few bright spots was the linebackers, a crew that is often overshadowed by the horrendous play of the New York secondary. Lets take a look at how they faired against the Bills on the road.

New York Jets Defensive Line Grade Sheet: Week 11

Frank Giasone grades out the Jets DL in week 11

The Jets continued their trend of playing maddeningly inconsistent football in Sunday’s road loss to division rival Buffalo, as much of the playoff talk from the fanbase in the weeks leading up to this game have now been replaced with questions and concerns regarding this team and its components moving forward.

It’s no secret that this team has been riddled with inconsistency. Whether it’s alternating wins and losses or the abysmal performances on the road, this Jets team is a tough one to figure out. Hidden inside this inconsistent season, though, have been a few consistencies (both good and bad) from game-to-game on the defensive side of the ball. And those trends continued on Sunday.

New York Jets & the AFC Playoff Picture Entering Week 12

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio breaks down the AFC Playoff Picture and the New York Jets standing heading into Week 12.

The New York Jets squandered a very good opportunity during Week 11. A win over the 3-7 Bills, coupled with a loss by the New England Patriots, would’ve put the Jets one game back of their arch rival in the division with 6 to play. Instead, the Jets didn’t take care of their business and were routed by the Bills. It was a horrible performance by a team that now finds itself faced with the daunting task of beating the defending Super Bowl Champion Ravens on the road. Let’s take a look at the AFC Playoff Picture heading into Week 12.
