Jets vs Dolphins Week 12 – Final Notes

The 4-6 Miami Dolphins take a trip to MetLife Stadium to face the 5-5 New York Jets in a pivotal divisional matchup.  The Jets have lost 4 out of the last 5 games and are trying to get back in the win column, let’s take a look and see what it is going to take:

Offense- Less bearded Ryan Fitzpatrick leads this Jets offense against a Miami defense that has not lived up to the hype so far this season.  They are allowing an average of over 250 passing yards per game and a mind-blowing 139 rushing yards a game.  Former Jet, Quinton Coples who was claimed by the Miami Dolphins earlier this week, may see some action this week according to Dolphins head coach Dan Campbell.  Ndamukong Suh, who was handled pretty well earlier this year against Brian Winters, will be hungry to make more of a impact.  The Jets can take advantage of a weak LB and secondary.  With Bilal Powell having a solid game against the Texans, look for him to have a great day today once again.  Brandon Marshall, looking to improve after some costly drops the past few weeks, will look to have an early impact.

Defense- I am not going to lie Jets fans, this matchup does concern me.  Not really because of Ryan Tannehill but of the weapons around him.  Lamar Miller, Jarvis Landry and Rashad Matthews are going to cause some matchup problems for the Jets.  With the injury to Darrelle Revis, look for Marcus Williams to start adjacent to Antonio Cromartie.  The Dolphins like to use their weapons in multiple ways, motioning them across the field and featuring end-arounds, screens and so forth.  One positive, the Dolphins have allowed 30 sacks so far this season, for the Jets to win, the Jets must create pressure, when you get in Tannehill’s face, he is prone to making some bad decisions. The Jets are home, use your home crowd to your advantage, be loud all game long.  I am interested to see if Erin Henderson gets more snaps and look for Lorenzo Mauldin to get 20 plus snaps.

Prediction: Believe it or not, if the Jets do win today, they are back in one of the two Wild Card spots.  Listen folks, I have to believe this week at Florham Park was not a picnic in the park.  With the release of Coples, it was a message sent loud and clear to the players.  The regime has little to allegiances with the players prior to this offseason, if you are not playing well, you will be replaced.  The players have heard that message loud and clear and that is going to show on the field.  Look for this offense to get itself going on the ground and in the air.  The defense needs and will create pressure and Mauldin will have 2 plus sacks today.

Jets 27 – Dolphins 21

TOJ Jets Link Dump – September 19th, 2015

New writer John Hargaden with a New York Jets link dump for September 19th 2015

Looking ahead to Monday night, no one can say that the Jets have no shot to win against the Colts. Yes, the Colts got demolished against Buffalo. Yes they have a top QB in the league….SO WHAT? Most odd makers have the Colts as a seven point favorite which is too much in my opinion. The Colts could be missing a few key players on Monday including TY Hilton. This is going to be a much closer game than people realize. One of the key players on Monday will need to be Chris Ivory. Keep Andrew Luck off the field.  If you have Chris Ivory on any on your fantasy teams, START HIM….You will thank me later. Follow me on Twitter: @johnhargz

Here are your Saturday links and make sure to check back later in the day for our week 2 fantasy preview, Jets UK Chronicles and more…

Why Bryce Petty Will Not Play For 2015 New York Jets

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio breaks down why Bryce Petty will not play for the New York Jets in 2015

By now, not even two weeks after the NFL draft, you’ve heard the rally cries from New York Jets fans starved for a franchise quarterback

“Start the kid.”
“Accept the Pettyness.”
“We know what we have with the other kid. Petty can’t be worse.”
“Tom Brady was a 6th round pick and look at how well he’s done.”

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I’ve said the same thing for months now: Jets fans needed to come to the realization that Geno Smith will probably be the starting quarterback  to begin the 2015 season. Now, does this mean he can’t implode? No. Does this mean that he will be the QB for the full season? Not necessarily but let’s take a look at what the Jets have done this off season and you’ll see why 2015 isn’t about Bryce Petty…

Happy Super Bowl day everyone! While many are looking forward to the food, drinks, commercials (and hopefully the actual game), I am officially in full off-season mode.

TOJ Film Room – Chan Gailey’s, Offense Part 1

Mike Nolan steps into the TOJ Film Room for part one of looking at Chan Gailey’s offense…

The New York Jets have officially announced Chan Gailey as the team’s next Offensive Coordinator. This may seem like a strange hire. Gailey hasn’t coached since 2012 and his Head Coaching stints were nothing, if not underwhelming.  Even so, many around the league consider Gailey to be a strong offensive mind. TOJ’s Dalbin Osorio took a look at Gailey’s career here. Today, Mike Nolan dives into the film to see what Jets fans can expect from Gailey’s system. In Part 1, Mike takes a look at Gailey’s overall offensive philosophy…
