Initial Reaction – We Wrote This Before The Game

Dalbin Osorio wrote his initial reaction to Jets vs. Dolphins about 2 hours before kickoff. It held up well!

On one sideline stood Adam Gase who, after getting former Jets General Manager Mike Maccagnan fired, oversaw the exodus of former All-Pro LeVeon Bell and defensive cornerstone Safety Jamal Adams. He’s, also, gutted QB Sam Darnold of any confidence he had left all while tailoring his offense around WR Chris Hogan and RB Frank Gore. If there is a deity, he only has 11 weeks left as the Jets Head Coach.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Release RB Le’Veon Bell

Just when you thought the Jets couldn’t get any more boring, any more lifeless, any more incompetent…they go ahead and release Le’Veon Bell.

Initial Reaction – One Third Of The Way Home

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 0-5

The New York Jets had another Gase Game today. 

They did not score a first half touchdown. They were down double digits at halftime. They scored one total touchdown when the game was in question and lost by multiple possessions. They are now 0-5 and one third of the way to a very achievable 0-16 record.

Initial Reaction – It Is Over

For the second week in a row, I have the luxury of writing this article halfway through the fourth quarter. I could have started it earlier. The Jets are going to lose by more than 20 points (again). The Jets are going to score less than 20 points (again). The Jets season is over in September (again). The only silver lining is renewed rumors of Adam Gase potentially being fired in season if he can’t beat the hobbled, 0-3 Denver Broncos this Thursday Night (GO DENVER, BABY).

Initial Reaction – The Worst Team In Football

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to another New York Jets blowout loss, this time to the San Francisco 49ers

I am writing this midway through the fourth quarter as the New York Jets trail 31-6 to the San Francisco 49ers. There may be a few more meaningless stats and developments but today was yet another game that was over in the first half. It was another game the Jets offense did nothing. It was another game their defense looked slow and unprepared. Injuries aren’t an excuse, the 49ers had more (No Jimmy G, No Bosa, No Ford, No Sherman, No Kittle, No Deebo). Playing against a good defense isn’t an excuse, as that is part of playing in the NFL. The Jets are historically incompetent thus far this season and have looked every bit of being the worst team in the NFL…by a wide margin.

Initial Reaction – Why Would You Think Anything Changed? Bills Crush Jets To Open Season

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets

The New York Jets decided continuity was important for quarterback Sam Darnold heading into year three, at least when it came to coaching. Head Coach Adam Gase was brought back as the de facto Offensive Coordinator, Dowell Loggains was brought back as the Offensive Coordinator but as the de facto Quarterbacks Coach, a position the Jets left officially vacant again. They were going to run the same system and trust more time would make it better and hope in year five that Gase and his system would finally click together and work wonders for Darnold…

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Sign DB Logan Ryan

After trading a sixth rounder for former 2nd rounder Quincy Wilson, signing Pierre Desir, re-signing Brian Poole, and drafting UVA standout Bryce Hall you’d think the work in the cornerback room for the Jets was done. Joe Douglas laughs at your assumptions, as its been reported that the New York Jets are signing former Titans Cornerback Logan Ryan.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Select WR Denzel Mims

The New York Jets traded back 11 spots in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft and acquired an extra third round pick, yet still found a way to grab Baylor WR Denzel Mims with their pick, a player who fell a bit further than most expected. Joe Douglas has had an early concentration on offense, starting with tackle Mekhi Becton and following up with Mims, addressing two major needs and helping Sam Darnold in the process.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Sign ILB Patrick Onwuasor

Joe Douglas returned to the Baltimore well as the Jets have agreed to a 1-year deal with ILB Patrick Onwuasor. He is being reunited with former teammate CJ Mosley, who he formed quite the tandem with in 2017- 2018 when he racked up 149 tackles, 12 TFLs, 6 sacks, and 3 forced fumbles over the two-year stretch.  His numbers dipped across the board in 2019 without Mosley and his PFF grade shot down almost 20 points from a 67.1 in 2018 to a 49.4.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Sign WR Breshad Perriman

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets signing WR Breshad Perriman to a one year deal

The New York Jets worked towards filling the hole left by Robby Anderson by immediately pivoting to signing free agent Breshad Perriman to a one year deal with 6 million guaranteed. Perriman’s contract continues Joe Douglas’ pattern of making a concentrated effort to have no contracts bleed into the 2021 season…
