Context Stats – Ryan Fitzpatrick vs The Bills

Edward Gorelik breaks down Ryan Fitzpatrick’s context stats against the Buffalo Bills

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. Fitzpatrick having 60% accuracy doesn’t tell you any real information, but 60% accuracy throwing against man coverage gives you something to work with. That’s the purpose of this season-long project.

New York Jets vs Giants – Christian Hackenberg Film Room

Edward Gorelik breaks down the film on New York Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg against the New York Giants

Was anyone expecting to see Christian Hackenberg play against the New York Giants? I wasn’t. The Jets offense was anemic until Hackenberg came in and gave it one jolt of life. Literally just a single jolt, because one good drive was all he had in him; but that was better than every other QB on Saturday. Seeing as Hackenberg may be the Jets starter as soon as next year, we may as well overanalyze his introduction…

New York Jets vs Washington: QB Report

Edward Gorelik breaks down the performance of the New York Jets quarterbacks against Washington…

The Washington game gave us a lot of information to unpack about the quarterbacks.

The pre-season for the QBs is nearly cut and dry with Fitzpatrick being the expected starter and Geno being the backup.

New York Jets: Geno Smith’s 2014 Stats In Context

Edward Gorelik breaks down Geno Smith’s 2014 season with context stats

We all knew it would come to this point. There’s no way to create an article about Ryan Fitzpatrick’s stats in context without also making one for Geno Smith. Well, now everyone’s getting their wish. It’s important to look at players within the context of their situation to separate their issues and strengths from their teams. While stats never tell the full story, adding a numerical value lets us remove the emotional highs and lows to fully process what occurred. It also allows us to quantify events in order to battle narratives and myths…

New York Jets: Ryan Fitzpatrick’s 2015 Stats In Context

Edward Gorelik breaks down Ryan Fitzpatrick’s 2015 season

It’s impossible to evaluate anything in the NFL without understanding the situation, responsibilities, and expectations of a player within the context of their surroundings. Otherwise, it’s too easy to credit them for things they don’t actually do or blame them for things that aren’t on them to do. Ryan Fitzpatrick’s 2015 season came on one of the Jets most talented offensive rosters in their entire history…

New York Jets – Ryan Fitzpatrick Saga and Risk of Geno Smith

There is a narrative of incompetence that surrounds the New York Jets, particularly at the quarterback position. Even good Jets teams in the past have had a history of average quarterback play.
