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 – Who to Avoid in Free Agency

Jake Benaquisto on free agents the New York Jets should avoid this offseason

After a miserable 2016 season, the New York Jets once again find themselves in need of a significant roster overhaul. In the 2015 offseason, GM Mike Maccagnan made several signings in free agency that proved to be ineffective for the long term success of the team. Players such as Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie, and Marcus Gilchrist seemed like great fits at the time, but their performance (or lack there of for Cromartie) last year proved otherwise.

How do you reflect on what we just went through? The Jets were bad, arguably worse than record indicated, and the lack of progress feels depressing. A typical “grades and awards” type review isn’t necessary to tell anyone this. There’s no joy in naming a team MVP for the season when the best candidate literally admits that he had no choice but to play for himself. And peering into the crystal ball, there’s no guarantee any of this is going to get any better any time soon.

Context Stats: Bryce Petty vs the Dolphins

Edward Gorelik breaks down Bryce Petty’s performance against Miami with his weekly context stats

Statistics let us remove emotional stimuli and focus on the hard truth of what happens. But we need to place statistics into their environment to gain context and understand what’s really happening. Bryce Petty having 60% accuracy doesn’t tell you any information, but 60% accuracy throwing against man coverage gives you something to work with. That’s the purpose of this season-long project.
