Joe Caporoso on the limitations the New York Jets are facing over the next 20 games as they approach becoming the football version of the New York Knicks
There are two sports teams I am fans of: the New York Jets and the New York Knicks (fun!). When I was younger, not married, not a father and not working in sports full time, I had a companion site for this one “Turn On The Knicks.” It stuck around for a few years but ultimately fizzled out when I couldn’t put the necessary time into it and couldn’t physically stomach covering them because of their prolonged incompetence and hopelessness. I still love basketball and consider myself a Knicks fan but apathy has long set in.
As for the Jets? For a variety of reasons this hasn’t happened yet (I like football more and I am better at talking football than basketball) but for the first time since I’ve been “covering” the team, they are entering the Knicks stratosphere of prolonged incompetence and hopelessness. The black hole of perpetual losing propped up by weak willed excuses and increasing profits for owners who don’t need to win to make money.
There is one logical course of action for the New York Jets at this point that can show their fan base they have some type of pulse on the reality of their organization’s current situation. Own the recent hiring mistake you made, rectify it and begin laying the groundwork for 2020 immediately.
Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets latest blowout loss to New England
There are no excuses for the New York Jets performance last night. New England is the best team in football but we have seen teams like Washington, the Giants and even Miami be more competitive against them than the effort the Jets put forward last night.
Hell, the Jets were more competitive against them with Bryce Petty under center and Todd Bowles coaching than they were last night. It was a no show job. A no show job on national television in the team’s first chance for a “big” win since the Minnesota game in October of last year.
Joe Caporoso with a loss vent on the New York Jets impending hall pass season
The New York Jets head into their bye week at 0-3, with three conference and two divisional losses under their belt. In a vacuum, their record is somewhat understandable considering their quarterback situation and the absence of CJ Mosley but 0-3 does not tell the whole story of their nightmarish start. The Jets have excuses to be bad this year but handing out a blank hall pass to the organization because of a handful of injuries is not the answer to turning around arguably the worst stretch in franchise history (14-37 in their past 51 games, 51-80 since 2010 and heading towards nine straight years of no playoffs).

Joe Caporoso reviews potential GM and HC candidates for the New York Jets in 2019 and also discusses Interim HC options for the rest of this season
The New York Jets are likely to fire Todd Bowles immediately after the season. As it stands today, it the Jets are unlikely to fire Mike Maccagnan (they should) but who knows where things will stand after the upcoming six games. Here is a run down of prospective replacements for both and a few thoughts on potentially putting an Interim Head Coach in for the remaining games in 2018 and why it isn’t likely to happen.
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
