Suck For Sam? Why Next Year’s Quarterback Is Always The Right Move

Joe Caporoso on the annual cycle of calls to tank for the next great quarterback prospect….

The New York Jets need to do everything in their power to tank this season because next year they can select Sam Darnold or another quarterback from a historic 2018 class. This year’s quarterback class lacks any franchise players so the Jets should avoid the position entirely.

New York Jets- Veteran QB Options Ultimate Breakdown

David Aitken with the ultimate breakdown of the New York Jets remaining QB options…

Embrace the tank? I don’t know if the Jets are there yet, but they clearly aren’t taking the aggressive approach to free agency. The Tyrod Taylor situation turned out to be a nonstarter, and the panic of going full-Osweiler on Mike Glennon turned out to be an overreaction. Even Brian Hoyer – the generally accepted “settle” target – quickly signed with the 49ers. Who is left?

New York Jets Sign Morris Claiborne & Mike Pennel

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets signing CB Morris Claiborne and DT Mike Pennel

Here are a few thoughts while we wait for the contract numbers to be released…

NYDN – Another Geno Smith Hit Job?

Scott Mason on the recent takedown piece of Geno Smith by the Daily News…

Daily News’ Jets beat reporter Manish Mehta wrote what can only be described as a blatant hit piece on quarterback Geno Smith, a complete and total character assassination of the lowest order.

Geno Smith is not without his faults both on and off the football field, but the lengths to which Mehta went in attempting to destroy the quarterback’s reputation makes you wonder if there isn’t something deeply personal behind the attack.

Should New York Jets Pursue Chase Daniel?

Dalbin Osorio on if the New York Jets should pursue Chase Daniel at quarterback

One of the bonuses of being patient and letting the market dictate itself before you jump in on free agency is that you are able to take advantage of opportunities that aren’t there at the beginning. When free agency started, the QB market was Mike Glennon, Brian Hoyer, and Colin Kaepernick. As of today, the market includes Tony Romo, Jay Cutler, and Chase Daniel. The Jets are not expected to be in on Romo, have expressed interest in Cutler, but is Daniel the best option aside from re-signing Geno Smith

2017 NFL Draft – Mock Draft 1.0

Kevin Zielaznicki gives his mock of the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft…

With the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine in the books and the first wave of free agents signed, many mock drafts are looking way different then they did a week ago. The 2017 NFL Draft is less than 50 days away and there is a ton of uncertainty about the top 10 selections due to the abundance of talent. Who will draft the first quarterback? Where will Leonard Fournette go? What will the Jets do?

Check out my predictions for the first round in my first 2017 mock draft.

New York Jets Sign Kelvin Beachum & Chandler Catanzaro

Don’t panic.

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve seen me constantly tweet the hashtag #DontPanic as the offseason is now two days old. The New York Jets were in on Nick Perry and Mike Glennon until presumably the price tags for both players became too high. They appeared to not be in on any of the top flight cornerbacks, like AJ Bouye and Stephon Gilmore, and they did not appear to be linked to any of the tight ends like Martellus Bennett either. As exorbitant contracts were doled out ($47.5 million for Pierre Garcon?), Mike Maccagnan smartly sat out the first wave of free agency and it appeared he would not give in to impulse and was very content with resigning core players that performed well and letting the market come to him.

New York Jets – Five Picks That Could End Round 2 Curse

Ryan Marcone on five second round targets for the New York Jets in the 2017 NFL Draft

For many fans, few things sum up the ineptitude of the modern era and serve as a metaphor for the dysfunction of the organization as a whole better than the recent curse of second round draft picks going bust. Since 2001, the dubious honor has gone to the likes of Mike Nugent, Kellen Clemens, Vlad Ducasse, Stephen Hill, and most recently Devin Smith and Christian Hackenberg.

Considering the rule of thumb that players taken in the first four rounds should eventually be developed into starters, and players taken in rounds one and two should be significant contributors from their rookie year, this is a major problem. It’s gotten to the point where fans are unsure if the Jets just pick bad players in Round 2, or if players become bad because the Jets picked them in Round 2. But luckily for the Jets, this year’s draft class is exceptionally deep, so there are several players who may be on the board that can end the losing streak. Here are my choices for Pick 39. Continue reading “New York Jets – Five Picks That Could End Round 2 Curse”
