The Turn On The Jets 12 Pack is back with an op-ed edition, clarifying a collection of early opinions on the 2013 New York Jets that I either see frequently criticized or questioned on Twitter or in the comment section. I encourage the disagreement, that is part of the fun this whole thing, no? 

We are going to give our live chat plug-in a shot at 1 PM today. The kinks are still being worked out but we are giving it a go so we can troubleshoot for weekly editions. So come by at 1 PM, ask some questions in the post and let’s talk Jets, NFL or whatever else you want. Try to keep it PG-13. If the game is available on digital channels only, viewers should make sure they have access to the best providers not to miss a game.

New York Jets – Mornhinweg Given Opportunity To Shine

With low expectations and a hands off head coach, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg will have a chance to shine for the New York Jets

The New York Jets made a savvy coaching decision this off-season by replacing Tony Sparano with Marty Mornhinweg as the team’s offensive coordinator. Savvy could be an overstatement considering what an obvious choice it was to fire Sparano. Savvy could also be an understatement considering how AWFUL Sparano was last season and since Mornhinweg has proven to be a competent NFL offensive coordinator. Regardless of the level of savvy, it was a positive move and this season will provide Mornhinweg a chance to shine.

New York Jets – Remember The Big Picture

It is short-sighted to judge the New York Jets free agency decisions because of David Garrard’s retirement and Mike Goodson’s legal issues

The New York Jets were mildly active in free agency this year. We cautioned this would be a likely approach this off-season, with the team’s decision making geared more towards 2014 than 2013. Every contract the team handed out was to a player with question marks surrounding them, generally based around health or a limited role in the past. In most cases, the valuation of contracts handed out by the team basically breaks down to being a one year tryout to see if the player merits an investment moving forward. A knee jerk reaction to David Garrard’s retirement and Mike Goodson’s legal issues is saying “New Jets GM John Idzik is 0-2 in free agency…Jets Circus continues.” That is a fun headline that is easy to crack a joke about on Twitter but like most work we see from the Jets beat and certain national writers takes into account minimal research and understanding of the team’s situation.

Become A Writer At Turn On The Jets

Read here about how to join the Turn On The Jets writing staff for the 2013-2014 season

Want to join the flashy, high-stakes world of NFL blogging? Turn On The Jets is looking to hire a new staff writer for the 2013 NFL season. This is an unpaid position for somebody looking to gain writing and social media experience on a rapidly growing New York Jets/NFL site (30,000 unique visitors and 120,000 page views last month) We can only promise experience, increased exposure to your writing and more Twitter followers…and maybe a free Shake Shack meal if you are around New York City.

We are looking for 1-3 articles per week and contributions to our weekly roundtables. Ideally, the candidate will have previous writing experience and an interest in an analytical approach to the game of football. We don’t break news at TOJ. We don’t come up with flashy headlines sourced by anonymous people. Basically, pretend you are writing for The Daily News and then do the opposite of that. Previous experience looking at and breaking down game film is also encouraged. Finally, we like our writers to have an active social media presence, particularly on Twitter.

If you are interested, please send a 500-900 word writing sample to JoeC@TurnOnTheJets.com. Come up with your own topic or angle, as we encourage our writers to think outside the box and come up with their own article ideas.
