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.

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 27-10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks…
The New York Jets fell to 1-3 today with a 27-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. In watching this game, it was clear Seattle had superior talent, an immensely superior quarterback and were a better coached team. The Seahawks are a perennial Super Bowl contender for a reason and this Jets team is nowhere near their level yet. This was a game that never really felt competitive and continued to expose ugly realities about the current state of this New York Jets team…

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 24-3 tire fire loss to the Kansas City Chiefs
The New York Jets had an opportunity for a statement victory in Kansas City today…that opportunity was drowned in a barrage of Ryan Fitzpatrick interceptions, six to be exact. The Jets JR Smith roller coaster ride of a quarterback was the worst version of himself today, putting together what is likely to be one of the worst performances of any quarterback this year, if not the worst. He finished 20/44 for 188 yards with 6 interceptions and 0 touchdowns. What else happened in a sobering reality check for the now 1-2 Jets?

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 37-31 over the Buffalo Bills
The New York Jets are never going to make it easy, but they handled business tonight in Buffalo with a 37-31 victory. This was a roller coaster of a game but the team stabilized on both sides of the ball midway through the third quarter and ran an inferior Bills team off the field. All divisional wins are important, especially ones on the road during a short week. This was a big win for the Jets and one they can take plenty of learnings from in the next ten days while they prepare for the Kansas City Chiefs. Let’s quickly break it down…

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 23-22 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on opening day…
The New York Jets had the table set for an impressive opening season victory against a likely playoff team today but managed to fall short by a single point, 23-22. This one stings because the Jets were not out played or out classed by the Bengals but rather were frequent victims of their own mental errors and stubbornness…

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets two 7th round selections: Punter Lachlan Edwards and
The New York Jets had two selections in the 7th round of the 2016 NFL Draft. With their first selection (235th overall), they took Sam Houston State Punter Lachlan Edwards and with their second selection (241st overall), they took Clemson WR Charone Peake.

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets trading up to take South Carolina offensive lineman Brandon Shell in the 5th round
The New York Jets made a surprising move by trading a 2017 4th round pick to move up into the 5th round for South Carolina offensive lineman Brandon Shell. It is worth remembering the Jets are likely to receive 3-4 compensatory picks next season, giving them a little more flexibility to move picks from 2017. Shell should help address an aging and thin offensive line.

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets taking CB Juston Burris in the 4th round with the 118th overall pick
The New York Jets used the 118th overall pick in the 4th round of the 2016 NFL Draft on cornerback Juston Burris from NC State. This pick is not surprising considering the Jets desire to build their own homegrown talent at corner, a critical position in Todd Bowles’ defense and the lack of this regime’s long term faith in Dee Milliner and Dexter McDougle. Burris’ skill set is a logical fit and his scouting report will sound familiar to many about the types of corners Bowles likes on the outside…

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 3rd round pick of Georgia outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins
The New York Jets used their 3rd round draft pick and 83rd overall overall selection on Georgia outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins. I mocked Jenkins to the Jets here with short commentary on the logic behind taking him. Here is a closer look at the newest member of the team…
