The New York Jets earned their first AFC East victory of the 2019 season today with a 22-21 win over the Miami Dolphins. Sam Ficken hit a 44 yard field goal as time expired in a win that was far from pretty but was a needed win for their young quarterback, Sam Darnold. They moved their 2019 record to 5-8 and will now face off with arguably the best team in the NFL, the Baltimore Ravens, on the road this Thursday night…

New York Jets Deep Dive – The Black Hole

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.

New York Jets Top Five – The Running Game Is Broken

Joe Belic on the New York Jets extended running game problems

The rekindled love affair with Adam Gase is back on the fritz.  Gase, who after a three-game winning streak was welcomed back by many with open arms, has once again been relegated to spending nights on the couch.  I can’t blame anybody for putting Gase in the dog house either. The rollercoaster ride, characteristic of many Jets seasons, has been tough to bear, and this latest precipitous plummet into the abyss—against an 0-11 Bengals team—had the fanbase sick and firmly clenching their vomit bags all the way down.
