New York Jets – How To Replace Austin Seferian-Jenkins & Demario Davis

Michael Nania on how the New York Jets will replace Demario Davis and Austin Seferian-Jenkins…

Coming off of a 5-11 season that was universally considered an over-achievement, the Jets didn’t have much irreplaceable talent to fear losing on the open market. However, they did lose a pair of starters in Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Demario Davis – two players I previously endorsed bringing back.

New York Jets – Upsides and Downsides Free Agent Deals

Michael Nania with the upsides and downsides of each of the New York Jets free agency signings so far…

Considering the weakened state of their roster, just about all of the moves the New York Jets have made figure to be upgrades. However, improving on 2017’s edition of the Jets is but a lowly task. The end goal is to build a championship contender. Have the deals the Jets have made put the team on a healthy path towards contention?

Offseason Needed To End Jets’ Playoff Drought – Part 2

Ben Blessington with part 2 of his New York Jets offseason plan to end the team’s playoff drought…

After a somewhat promising 2017 season, the New York Jets will look to build on their positives in 2018. Despite starting a 39 year old QB, with holes all over the roster, the Jets suprisingly hung around in the playoff hunt until December. In a weak AFC, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that the Jets could be playing January football next year. Especially since GM Mike Maccagnan will likely have over 100 million dollars in cap space and 8 draft selections, including 3 premium picks (thank you Seattle), Maccagnan has a terrific opportunity to completely turn around the franchise and make a serious playoff run in 2018. Here is part 2 (free agency) of a step by step analysis on what I think the Jets need to do over the next few months to make that dream a reality, and end the Jets 7 year playoff drought.

New York Jets – Second Tier Free Agent Quarterback Options

Michael Nania on three second-tier free agent quarterback options for the New York Jets to consider…

The New York Jets quarterback room is as bare as it has ever been, which is saying something when discussing this franchise. However, the Jets have the luxury of there being a bevy of tantalizing options for solving their quarterback issue this offseason. Kirk Cousins and the top draft prospects have received the most attention, but is a future Jet quarterback actually lingering in the second tier of the free agency market?

TOJ New York Jets Film Room – Darron Lee, Week 9 (Follow Up)

Daniel Essien with a week 9 film breakdown of Darron Lee against Buffalo…

In the previous Darron Lee film room from earlier this year, we stated that Lee needs to use his uncommon athleticism to make more impact plays. The last three weeks he has done just that. In this film room we’ll focus on his performance against the Bills in week 9 and the noticeable improvements he has made.

New York Jets Sign Kelvin Beachum & Chandler Catanzaro

Don’t panic.

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve seen me constantly tweet the hashtag #DontPanic as the offseason is now two days old. The New York Jets were in on Nick Perry and Mike Glennon until presumably the price tags for both players became too high. They appeared to not be in on any of the top flight cornerbacks, like AJ Bouye and Stephon Gilmore, and they did not appear to be linked to any of the tight ends like Martellus Bennett either. As exorbitant contracts were doled out ($47.5 million for Pierre Garcon?), Mike Maccagnan smartly sat out the first wave of free agency and it appeared he would not give in to impulse and was very content with resigning core players that performed well and letting the market come to him.

Could New York Jets Turn To Familiar Face At QB?

Scott Mason on the New York Jets needing to potentially turn to a familiar face at quarterback…

So much for Tyrod Taylor, Jets fans.

The 27 year-old quarterback, who was the object of much affection on Jets twitter, broke many green hearts when he agreed to restructure his deal with the Buffalo Bills just days before he was widely expected to be cut.

Taylor is by no means a perfect quarterback.  While his athleticism and arm strength are off the charts, he is, at his core, a one-read quarterback who does not see the middle of the field.

New York Jets 2017 Offseason – Areas to Improve (Defense)

Daniel Essen breaks down the current status of the New York Jets defense and how they could go about improving it…

The New York Jets defense regressed from last year in a big way. What was the 4th best defense in the NFL last season, fell to the 18th ranked defense and displayed performances that were downright awful at times. Here we’ll look at potential solutions to all the problematic areas of the Jets defense as they begin to rebuild in 2017…
