TOJ – New York Jets Tight End Grade Sheet (Week 7)

Cole Patterson breaks down the recent usage of Jace Amaro, Jeff Cumberland and Zach Sudfeld by the New York Jets

Every week Cole Patterson will break down the performance of the New York Jets tight ends. Here is his take on week seven. 

Grading Scale: Tight end is an interesting position to grade out, given that they are responsible for both receiving and blocking. As receivers in this offense, tight ends will be asked to line up anywhere from slot, to split end, to flanker and be responsible for the entire route tree. As blockers in the offense, they will be assigned delayed releases, one-on-one blocks, or simply to chip a pass rusher. With these roles in mind, it is difficult to create a complex grading scale based on YPC or blocking, as the play may conclude before the tight end’s true role on the play is clear. All of that is to say, because the tight end position is so enigmatic, a simple letter based grading scale is best employed. 

  • A = Entirely positive impact
  • B = Consistent positive impact, few minor mistakes
  • C = Equal level of positive and negative impact, average, or made no impact plays whatsoever
  • D = Mostly negative impact, with room for improvement
  • F = Entirely negative impact

TOJ – New York Jets Tight End Grade Sheet (Week 5): The Case for Jace

Cole Patterson zeros in on the New York Jets best option at tight end, Jace Amaro.

Normally, in this post, I go over the individual performances of the New York Jets tight ends: Jeff Cumberland, Jace Amaro, and Zach Sudfeld. If you’ve been keeping track or following my grade sheets you’ll know that, to this point in the season, the tight ends have been making little to no impact on paper. In fact, outside of dropping a few balls and whiffing a few key blocks, you may not even know they were on the field. Save one that is, enter: Jace Amaro.

TOJ – New York Jets Running Back Grade Sheet (Week 5)

Dalbin Osorio grades out the New York Jets running backs

The New York Jets running backs, like the rest of the team, turned in a pretty dismal performance on Sunday against the Chargers. There was plenty of blame to go around, as the offensive line repeatedly got beat off their blocks, the running backs weren’t utilized correctly, and they didn’t make the most of their opportunities when they were used correctly. Let’s get to the numbers, and then we’ll focus on the analysis.
