Initial Reaction – Big Tanks Keep On Rolling, Raiders Beat Jets 45-20

Initial reaction to the New York Jets 45-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders

The New York Jets went to Oakland and did just about what everybody expected, losing to the Raiders 45-20. This game was somewhat competitive in the first half, until a muffed punt from Kalif Raymond (soon to be cut) set up a Raiders touchdown that gave them a permanent double digit lead. The Jets have the least talented roster in the NFL so it shouldn’t be a surprise that they lost to one of the NFL’s best teams on the road by a wide margin. Let’s dive into a #AsExpected Sunday…

Initial Reaction – Fire Up The Tank Engines, Jets Lose 21-12 To Buffalo

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 21-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills

The New York Jets 2017 regular season got off to a start that many expected. They slogged back and forth in an ugly game against Buffalo, losing 21-12 as they ran out of steam in the 4th quarter. This is likely one of the worst teams that they will play this season, which makes it that much more troubling (except for the tank) that they couldn’t stay within one possession. There were a few bright spots but this game was mostly a magnifying glass on the roster development and game management problems plaguing this franchise.

Initial Reaction – A Steaming Pile Of First Half Crap, Giants Beat Jets 32-31

The New York Jets were given a hard reality check across the face tonight against the New York Giants. Despite a rally in the second half on the back Bryce Petty (PETTY-SANITY!), they were trailing 29-3 at halftime. The primary reason for that deficit was the play of starting quarterback Christian Hackenberg, who looked completely overwhelmed for the second week in a row.

The New York Jets made their preseason debut tonight with a 7-3 win over the Tennessee Titans. Yes, the under is likely going to be a wise bet in many of the team’s games this season. So, what actually happened out there?

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.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Thankfully On To Offseason

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets season finale and what is to come next…

The New York Jets season mercifully came to an end today with a 30-10 win over the Buffalo Bills. They finished a disappointing 5-11 and with the 6th pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. Both Todd Bowles and Mike Maccagnan will be back for year three, after compiling a 15-17 record through two years with zero playoff appearances and no apparent answer at quarterback on the roster. Much of what happened today was meaningless so let’s paint a few broad strokes before spending the next few months diving into an offseason evaluation and strategy…
