Initial Reaction – They Are Who We Thought They Were, Jets Lose 15-10 To Fitzpatrick

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 15-10 loss to the Tampa Bay Bucs

The New York Jets were due for a regression to the mean game. They got it on the road in Tampa Bay today, falling 15-10 in a game that was not as close as the score looked. This was an ugly, painful to watch display of football between two thoroughly mediocre teams, led by two thoroughly mediocre quarterbacks. On the whole, the Jets coaching staff has been pretty good this year but today they laid a complete egg, failing to do anything to adjust around the Jets notable talent limitations at premium positions. This team was also feeling just a little too good about themselves because of one divisional win, while failing to recognize they had lost the three games before it and are still in last place in the AFC East.

New York Jets Vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Position Breakdowns

Greg Armstrong gives a positional breakdown of Jets vs. Bucs

The New York Jets have a very good chance at being a .500 football team heading into their bye week. The only thing standing in their way? Ryan Fitzpatrick and a reeling Buccaneers team who has been one of the most underwhelming teams in football this season. I take a closer look at how the teams stack up against each other. (more…)

New York Jets: Three Up, Three Down – Week 10 Edition

Mike Nash goes three up, three down on the New York Jets heading into week 10

Just as we all expected, the Jets completely dominated the Bills on Thursday night football. The offense was clicking, special teams were solid, and the Jets defense might still be dancing (If you have not already, check out the #JetsDanceToAnything hashtag on Twitter. You’re welcome). Overall, it might have been the most complete game the Jets have played in years.

NFL Draft – 2018 QB Prospect Tracker: Week 11

Joe Malfa with his weekly ranking of the top quarterbacks in college football

These quarterback trackers have been written under the impression the Jets would be a lock for a top-five pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. After a Thursday night demolition of the Bills, the Jets are 4-5 with a chance to enter the bye week at .500. They currently sit in position to have the No. 14 pick in the draft.

Wherever they end up — whether it is top-five, top-10, or even top-15 the way they have been playing — they will still have a shot at a franchise quarterback in a QB-heavy draft class, so Joe Malfa kept a close eye on the performances of college’s top quarterback prospects this week as he has throughout the season.

Here are the rankings ahead of Week 11:
