Joe Caporoso with thoughts on how the New York Jets should handle the rest of the 2018 regular season
The New York Jets have now lost three games in a row to drop their record to 3-6. Instead of pouring over Sunday’s slop-fest again, which I did right here, let’s take a step back to review what the team should do the rest of the season…now that their season is over again in early November, a tradition like no other! This is not a comprehensive organizational overhaul discussion, which we’ll save for the bye week, rather this is what the team should do over their final seven games in an attempt to squeeze some value out of them.
Joe Caporoso with a midseason deep dive on the New York Jets eternal rebuild
The New York Jets have hit the halfway mark of the regular season at a familiar 3-5 record. It was their record each of the previous two years through eight games and right in the ballpark of their record through eight games every season since 2010 (the last time they made the playoffs). Instead of doing a loss vent on the Jets 24-10 coma inducing defeat to the Chicago Bears, let’s take a bigger step back to discuss the Jets eternally ongoing rebuild, most recently stewarded by Mike Maccagnan and Todd Bowles.
Joe Caporoso with a week 7 loss vent on the New York Jets 37-17 defeat to the Minnesota Vikings…
“It’s not like they came in here and just smacked us,” Lee said of the Vikings. “It’s nothing to sit here and hit the panic button about. We’re fine. No one is worried or panicking here. We’re fine as a group. We’re a lot more close-knit [than last year].
“I know in a couple years past, since I’ve been here, the wheels have fallen off and all hell would break loose. But we’re fine, and no one is panicking here. We weren’t as close-knit as a group as we are now. Nobody has got their head hanging down.” – New York Jets ILB Darron Lee after yesterday’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings

Joe Caporoso with a week 15 loss vent on the New York Jets 31-19 defeat to the New Orleans Saints and quarterback purgatory…
The New York Jets suffered their seventh loss in nine games against the New Orleans Saints. It is hard to be distraught about it considering the team’s current situation. They are clearly overmatched to compete in games like this and they hung tough for most of the afternoon, after embarrassing themselves the week before against Denver. The rookie safeties played well, some guy named Xavier Cooper looked like twice the player of Muhammad Wilkerson, rookies Chad Hansen and Elijah McGuire made plays and the offensive line held up well. Yet ultimately the game served as a crippling reminder of how much the Jets have failed at the game’s most important position, quarterback, in recent years.
Joe Caporoso with a loss vent on the New York Jets 23-0 no show in Denver…
The New York Jets played their worst game of the season yesterday, losing in an embarrassing shut out to a team who was last in DVOA and had lost eight in row prior to their matchup. It looked like the Jets skipped the week of practice, forgot to game plan and then decided midway through the third quarter they were accepting their loss and wanted the game over as quick possible. It was like if you took Muhammad Wilkerson and multiplied him into an entire organization. Lazy, disinterested and miserable to watch. With their upcoming schedule, the Jets look well on their way to 5-11.
Joe Caporoso with a loss vent on the New York Jets 35-27 defeat to the Carolina Panthers
The New York Jets have lost football games in a repeating and familiar way this season. They enter a game as underdogs, they gain an early lead, they head into the fourth quarter, either winning or narrowly behind but then ultimately lose in gut wrenching fashion. This season they are 2-5 in one possession games and outside of Jacksonville are yet to score what could really be classified as an “upset” in hindsight. Where does this leave them with five games left at 4-7?
Joe Caporoso with a New York Jets loss vent on their 15-10 defeat to the Tampa Bay Bucs…
It is hard to say yesterday’s New York Jets loss was shocking. Despite the good vibes of a primetime win over a quickly fading Buffalo team, the Jets entered yesterday 1-3 on the road, who was well in the 20s in total offense, total defense and DVOA rankings. The NFL and particularly the AFC is filled with mediocre parity this year. This Jets team can be competitive most weeks because of it but also lose in any given week because of it. Yesterday was disappointing because it did not only amplify the team’s talent shortcomings, it also amplified a lack of maturity to avoid a “let down” game.

The New York Jets have lost three games in a row and are quickly careening towards a record most expected for them prior to the season. Why can’t this team hold on to a lead or win close games? Will they be realistic about where the rest of this season is headed?

The New York Jets lost in excruciating fashion to a divisional rival yesterday, in a game that may shape the trajectory of their 2017 season. How does a loss like that happen and what does it say about the bigger picture around this franchise?
