Greg Armstrong with initial reaction to the New York Jets trading Darron Lee for a 6th round pick
While this move wasn’t much of a surprise, the timing of it was odd on the day that the team fired GM Mike Maccagnan.
Daniel Essien with his initial reaction on the Jets selecting LB Blake Cashman…
The New York Jets went back to defense in the fifth round of the NFL Draft selecting LB Blake Cashman from Minnesota. The Jets decided to address their depth at LB and special teams by bringing in the Gophers’ leading tackler in 2018. Cashman benefited from a great draft process and a sound reputation.

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”
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.

Dalbin Osorio with initial reaction the New York Jets trading for OG Kelechi Osemele
With the league’s official legal tampering season a few hours away from beginning, the New York Jets have kicked off their offseason work under new Head Coach Adam Gase. Their first move? Sending a 2019 5th round pick to the Oakland Raiders for RG Kelechi Osemele and a 6th round pick.
Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets hiring Adam Gase as their next Head Coach
The New York Jets have decided to hire Adam Gase as their next Head Coach. Yesterday, our man Scott Mason did an excellent overview of him with Travis Wingfield who closely followed and covered him during his time in Miami, I strongly encourage you to give it a listen.
One of the benefits of this site and how I cover the team is that I don’t have to work with Adam Gase going forward or see him all the time. I don’t know anything about him personally or professionally outside of what has been discussed around his Miami tenure and what has happened on the field in his career. This also isn’t a fan site so I am not going to shill for a decision just because the Jets made it, you are just going to get my opinion, backed up by what data I can provide.
My opinion is that I strongly dislike this hire. I would criticize the hire if any other team in the NFL made it and I will criticize the Jets for making it. Now, another good thing about this site, is what do I know? Crazier things have happened in the NFL and maybe an interim owner, a 24-40 GM and a 23-25 Head Coach can make this work. I will be rooting for it as a fan.
Joe Caporoso with thoughts on the New York Jets 29-22 loss to the Houston Texans
The New York Jets lost to the Houston Texans 29-22 last night in a highly competitive back and forth game to drop their record to 4-10. Last night’s game highlighted a few things that have been obvious all season but more importantly was a major step forward for rookie quarterback Sam Darnold. Candidly, everything that happened last night that didn’t involve Darnold is just footnotes for this team right now.
