Initial Reaction – New York Jets Are On The Board!

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets first win of the 2019 season, 24-22 over the Dallas Cowboys

The New York Jets got their first win of the 2019 season today against the Dallas Cowboys, 24-22. Sam Darnold’s return to action was nearly flawless, as he racked up 338 yards passing with a pair of touchdowns and a YPA of 10.6. The Cowboys late comeback charge fell short when a Jamal Adams blitz forced an incompletion on the game tying two point conversion. It was a desperately needed victory for a team who was clearly reenergized by the return of their starting quarterback.

New York Jets Loss Vent, Week 5 – The Lost Quarter

Joe Caporoso with a New York Jets loss vent on the lost quarter of the 2019 season and where the organization goes from here…

The first quarter of the New York Jets 2019 season is in the books. Four losses. Five touchdowns (two from the offense). Outscored by opponents 101-39. One game from Sam Darnold. Two quarters from CJ Mosley. Five quarters from Quinnen Williams. Quincy Enunwa out for the year. Brandon Shell benched. Trumaine Johnson benched…then un-benched. Zero Leonard Williams sacks. Zero Robby Anderson touchdowns. Ty Montgomery collecting mothballs. Many, many first down A gap handoffs. A spleen that we are all waiting on to shrink. Where do we go from here?

Initial Reaction – Your Weekly New York Jets Blow Out Article

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets getting blown out by the Philadelphia Eagles to drop their record to 0-4

The New York Jets dropped to 0-4 today with a 31-6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Much like their previous two games, there was never a moment of the game that was competitive or that the end result was in doubt. It was a waste of a trip down the I-95. The Jets did not show up with any intention to win this football game and thus were obliterated as their season swilled further down the toilet.

Initial Reaction – Put Down The Smelling Salts, Jets Choke Away Opener

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 17-16 opening day loss to the Buffalo Bills

The New York Jets had a 16-0 lead midway through the third quarter. It appeared they were on their way to an ugly opening day win, where they would be able to weather the storm of multiple missed kicks and a lackluster showing on offense. They weren’t passing the eye test of a “contender” but wins are wins and 16 points looked like enough against a sputtering Buffalo offense.

It wasn’t.

The New York Jets went back to defense in the fifth round of the NFL Draft selecting LB Blake Cashman from Minnesota.

The New York Jets added some depth at tight end after trading back multiple times in the fourth round and taking Trevon Wesco.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Select Edge Jachai Polite In 3rd Round

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets selecting Florida Edge Jachai Polite in the third round

The New York Jets addressed their long standing need at edge rusher with their first third round pick of the night by selecting Florida edge rusher Jachai Polite. One of the more divisive prospects in the class, Polite was a highly productive college player at the top level of competition who struggled in the pre-draft process, moving him from a potential first round pick into day two. This is a high risk, high reward swing.
