New York Jets – What Could They Have Done Differently?

Joe Caporoso with alternate decisions the New York Jets could have made in recent years…

Heading into year three of the Mike Maccagnan/Todd Bowles regime, the New York Jets have fully hit the reset the button. After two years of missing the playoffs, they have cleared the roster of nearly all veterans and are entering the season projected by most as one of the worst, if not the worst, team in the NFL. Many are anticipating a top five pick to compliment what should be 70-80 million dollars in cap space to spend, after further veteran subtractions are made. 

What could Maccagnan have done different throughout his first two years plus on the job to avoid likely starting his GM career with three straight years of missing the playoffs? The response to the question on Twitter has led to an interesting range of responses. Here is an overview of a few different paths that could have been taken. We’ll also discuss in this week’s Roundtable

Ten Years Of Blogging – Now, What Did You Learn?

Joe Caporoso with what he has learned through ten years of blogging about his favorite but generally bad football team…

I have been blogging about the New York Jets for roughly ten years, most of them through this website. It has been an interesting journey that has yielded me a full time career in sports while also sucking away chunks of time to devour junk food on Twitter and get irrationally annoyed about silly things. I decided to take a step back and offer observations about being a fan who blogs about their favorite team. I spoke with Corey Griffin and Mike Dussault on the topic as well and their insight is included below.

New York Jets – Return Of The Tight End & Fullback?

Joe Caporoso on the state of the New York Jets tight end and fullback position

The New York Jets offense has not prominently featured the traditional tight end or fullback position in recent years. In 2013 and 2014, they dealt with the incompetence of Jeff Cumberland and Jace Amaro. In 2015, they creatively utilized Quincy Enunwa as a hybrid H-Back to supplement the position. In 2016, when Enunwa shifted out to receiver, the positions fell into complete irrelevance.  Will the hiring of John Morton at Offensive Coordinator change the prioritization of tight end or fullback and do the Jets have the resources to utilize the position?
