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.

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…

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 34-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins
The New York Jets were embarrassed in primetime for the third time this season, falling to the Miami Dolphins 34-13. After an encouraging opening drive and a competitive first half, the Jets melted down in the second half on offense, defense and special teams. It was a fully comprehensive loss by one of the NFL’s worst teams in front of 10,000 people mostly rooting for the away team.

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 23-17 overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers
The New York Jets ended their four game losing streak with a comeback victory against the now 1-12 San Francisco 49ers, 23-17 in overtime. Many will be frustrated with the win because of draft position but ultimately the Jets were probably locked in to picking between 4th and 6th anyway. This was an encouraging day for many of the younger players on the roster and hopefully will be a game for many of them to build off of going forward.

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 41-10 loss to the Indianapolis Colts
The New York Jets embarrassed themselves for the second time this season on Monday Night Football, losing to the Indianapolis Colts 41-10. This was a gutless, no show in front of an empty stadium, fully completing the circle back to where this team was two years ago. There is nothing positive to say about what transpired tonight, so let’s rip everybody!

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 22-17 loss to the New England Patriots
The New York Jets showed up today against the New England Patriots, more than you can say for them in many weeks this season. Despite having a chance to grab an upset, they fell late to the Patriots, 22-17 to drop their record to 3-8. There were bright moments but ultimately this loss demonstrated many of the team’s primary problems and why they are going to have a top ten pick this offseason.

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 27-23 loss to the Miami Dolphins…
The New York Jets lost a chaotic, sloppy, disjointed game in Miami today, 27-23. This divisional loss should end any discussion of a potential run into relevant games this December as the Jets have put themselves in too big of a hole at 3-6 to do anything but play for pride and next season. Similar to most of their losses, there is plenty of blame to be spread around…

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 31-28 victory over the Cleveland Browns…
The New York Jets shook off an embarrassing first half in Cleveland to beat the Browns 31-28, their second win in a row. After sleepwalking to a 20-7 deficit, the Jets came out of the locker room as a different team, shutting down a porous Browns offense, forcing turnovers and making plays on offense. Nobody should be beating their chests about a victory over a 0-8 team but the Jets avoided embarrassing themselves by handling business for two quarters on the road…

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets 28-3 loss to the Arizona Cardinals
The New York Jets never had a prayer tonight. You cannot overcome the worst starting quarterback in the NFL, particularly when you are one of the worst coached teams in the NFL. You cannot overcome it when you have no explosive plays in the running game. You cannot overcome it when you have an overrated, overpaid defensive line and secondary. This team didn’t have a final punch in them in primetime, instead they laid down and died.
