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.

Joe Caporoso with 12 predictions for Jets vs. Browns
The New York Jets host the Cleveland Browns in the their final home game of the 2013 regular season. MetLife Stadium has been kind to the team this year, as they currently hold a 5-2 record at home, including upset victories over the New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints. While the game is “meaningless” since it involves two teams out of playoff contention, let’s hope the Jets can do something they haven’t done the past two seasons, finish strong.

The New York Jets offense performed better than expected against a stout Panthers defense on Sunday, but could not hit the big play to stay in the game. Last week, I broke down a play where Santonio Holmes dropped a sure touchdown pass from Geno Smith. To keep things in perspective, I’ll break down a play where Geno Smith let down his wide receiver. Saalim Hakim, the recent addition to the 53 man roster, flashed top notch speed on his five snaps he played. In the following play, Saalim shows why the Jets took a flier on him. While not the most polished football player (he did not start playing until his Senior year of high school), the raw skills appear to be present. Let’s break down the play.

Frank Giasone breaks down the tape on the Jets defensive line in week 16
After Sunday’s loss to Carolina, it’s starting to look like nagging injuries and fatigue in the front seven have begun taking their toll on the Jets’ defense. Pairing an anemic offense with a defense that struggles to force turnovers can have that effect, as we’ve seen this defense spend far too much time on the field through 15 weeks.

New York Jets Debate Club: Cole Patterson and Dalbin Osorio go back and forth on the head coaching conundrum facing the 2014 New York Jets
The New York Jets unlikely roller coaster ride to December relevancy came to an end yesterday with a Baltimore win. Understandably, the focus of the fan-base has already shifted to the offseason. WIth over $40 million in cap space and a full stock of draft picks, change is inevitable. However, much of the conversation has switched to Rex Ryan and the Jets future at head coach. The debate over wether Rex remains the head man of the franchise will dominate the landscape until a decision is made, one way or another. While John Idzik and Woody Johnson have likely already made their decision, it is important for the public to understand the debate, the reasoning, behind the impending decision. With that in mind, we at Turn On the Jets offer an argument/counter-argument format to best expound the various cases. Dalbin Osorio will argue in favor of extending Rex Ryan and Cole Patterson will argue for change.
For further reading on the head coaching debate, see Joe Caporoso and Dan Marcus‘ inspired debate: The Future Is Bright But Should Rex Ryan Be Part Of It?

Connor Rogers takes a look at the New York Jets story lines for week 16.
The Jets playoff hopes have come to an end, but there is still football to be played. The Cleveland Browns come into MetLife Stadium this weekend in what is expected to be a warm and rainy day. The Jets are a young team with a lot of big question marks heading into the offseason. Will the team lay down these next two weeks or fight for Rex Ryan’s job? Let’s take a look at this week’s story lines. Continue reading “New York Jets – Morning Cup of Coffee”

Connor Rogers grades the Jets linebackers from there week 15 performance in Carolina.
The Jets had a tough task at hand facing the mobile Cam Newton on Sunday. While an early injury slowed Newton’s scrambling ability, his arm was more than efficient. The inside linebacking duo of Demario Davis and David Harris had arguably their worst game this season. On the other hand, Quinton Coples continues to turn it on in the second half while Calvin Pace refuses to go off into the sunset of washed up veterans. Lets grade the linebackers from week 15.

Dan Marcus and Joe Caporoso discuss Rex Ryan’s future with the New York Jets
The below article was originally submitted by Dan Marcus and inspired editor Joe Caporoso to leave a response at the bottom in italics. Later in the week, our Cole Patterson and Dalbin Osorio will debate the Rex Ryan question as well, which promises to be a dominant one over the next month or so.
There was a point yesterday when I thought the Jets would actually pull it out right after “Riverboat Ron” essentially spat in the face of the offense and the defense for that matter and the momentum was shifting in a big way, culminated by a Sheldon “Fridge”-ardson Touchdown. However, in the grand fashion of the Jets, they proceeded to throw up all over themselves and turned a three-point game into a 17-point deficit before you could even blink. In a way, it was an all-too-fitting end to a season that many thought to be doomed before it ever started but somehow, despite a fundamental lack of talent, they put themselves in a position to contend for the final playoff spot in the AFC.
