Crafting A Basketball Team Out Of The Current Jets Roster

NFL Training Camps are quickly approaching but before we get there, the NBA takes precedent. The NBA draft was a week ago, free agency is right around the corner and weeks after we’ve moved on from the NBA season, awards were finally given out. With all that being said, what would a basketball team look like if we were limited to only guys on the current Jets roster? Lets give it a shot!

Initial Reaction: Jets Hire Joe Douglas As GM

Greg Armstrong with his initial reaction to the Jets signing Joe Douglas as GM…

After a much elongated GM search, the Jets finally got what was widely regarded as the top candidate on the market in Joe Douglas. Douglas served as the Eagles VP of Player Personnel before accepting the job offer. Continue reading “Initial Reaction: Jets Hire Joe Douglas As GM”

Initial Reaction – Jets Select TE Trevon Wesco In Fourth Round

Greg Armstrong With His Initial Reaction On The Jets Selecting TE Trevon Wesco…

The New York Jets added some depth at tight end after trading back multiple times in the fourth round and taking Trevon Wesco. With Chris Herndon likely facing a suspension and the value at offensive line not so great in the fourth, Wesco gives Adam Gase an athletic blocker for his new RB1 Le’Veon Bell.  Continue reading “Initial Reaction – Jets Select TE Trevon Wesco In Fourth Round”

Initial Reaction- Jets Trade Up To Select OL Chuma Edoga In Third Round

Greg Armstrong With His Initial Reaction On The Jets Drafting OT Chuma Edoga…

The New York Jets *finally* address their offensive line need in the third round with a trade up with the Vikings. The Jets gave up the 93rd and 217th pick to move up to 92nd. Edoga is a talented player who who was Sam Darnolds tackle in college but there were questions about his work ethic coming into the draft.  (more…)

Robby Anderson – King Of New York Jets Social Media

Greg Armstrong on Robby Anderson’s increasingly dominant game (and social media game)

The last two years surrounding the Jets have been filled with talks of culture change despite still being bad on the field, a lofty nickname for a below average secondary and fans bickering with each other about whether or not Mike Maccagnan should stay as the GM. But through all of the dark times, there has been one shining light: Robby Anderson (and his social media game). (more…)

Initial Reaction: New York Jets Sign CB Brian Poole

After making the big moves earlier on in the week, the Jets begin to fill out the roster in the latter waves of free agency starting with CB Brian Poole. Poole will take over for Buster Skrine as the primary slot corner.

This appears to be an almost lateral move from Buster Skrine. I asked Charles McDonald earlier this week what his assessment of Poole was and he had this to say:

He seems to be one of the guys Gregg Williams prefers in his defense, in regards to a blitzing slot corner. He won’t be able to cover the faster slot receivers but will be serviceable in the slot. Skrine was a fine player but for the money he was making, you couldn’t justify him. Poole comes on a cheaper deal and can provide you with a similar skillset. I would still expect them to continue to make deals to sure up the secondary depth considering they’re main guys right now are Trumaine Johnson, Darryl Roberts and now Poole.

Another interesting stat, courtesy of Michael Nania: Poole averages almost two less penalties per 16 games than Buster Skrine. Hopefully he shows up for the two Dolphins games a year unlike Skrine.

New York Jets 7 Round Offseason Mock (V. 2)

Greg Armstrong With His Second 7 Round Offseason Jets Mock…

It’s Friday! Here’s my second 7 round offseason Jets mock with some trades down. As always, this was done with the Fanspeak mock draft simulator so some of the available players didn’t quite fit the rounds they are ultimately going to be taken in but I tried to make it as realistic as possible. If you have any issues, you can direct your hate to me on Twitter.

What’s Your Point? – Ep #24: Jets Have A New Coach edition w/Guest Judge Paul Esden

It’s your weekly NY Jets debate show “What’s Your Point?” with Dalbin Osorio  vs Greg Armstrong. This week the guys do battle on four of the hottest Jets following the conclusion of the team’s search for a new head coach.

“Play Like A Jet” presents episode #24 of your weekly NY Jets debate show “What’s Your Point?” with Dalbin Osorio  vs Greg Armstrong 

This week the guys do battle on four of the hottest Jets following the conclusion of the team’s search for a new head coach:

  1. Did the Jets make the right choice by hiring Adam Gase as their new head coach?
  2. Were the Jets right to demand Matt Rhule give up control of his staff or was Rhule right to stand his ground?
  3. Do you have more or less respect for Mike McCarthy after he reportedly asked for a “Godfather offer” from the Jets?
  4.  Was Karl telling the truth when he said he had  a real source or was he trolling all along?

You will hear the answers to these topics debated with special guest Paul “Boy Green” Esden – host of “Drive Time Sports” on AM 1260 The Score in Syracuse and host of “The Jets Zone” podcast – as the judge, jury, and executioner!

Play Like A Jet and What’s Your Point are part of the Turn on the Jets Digital podcast network……..
