In this piece, we’ll look at building an elite defense. We’ll focus on what draft decisions they can make, based on current trends and successful defenses in the NFL.

New York Jets – A Tale of Two McCowns

Michael McLaughin on New York Jets QB Josh McCown history of playing with young wide receivers…

Josh McCown will help the New York’s young wide receivers develop, right? The logic is that he will bring a stabilizing, veteran presence, be able to properly read coverages and throw accurate enough to not stunt the growth of players such as Quincy Enunwa, Robbie Anderson and Charone Peake. Is that true, though? Continue reading “New York Jets – A Tale of Two McCowns”

New York Jets – Why Josh McCown Was Right Choice

Scott Mason on why the New York Jets signing Josh McCown was the right move…

Our long national nightmare is finally over.

Quarterback Josh McCown has signed a one-year deal with the Jets, putting an end to one of the most pathetic quarterback searches in recent memory.

The career journeyman, who will be 38 on opening day, brings with him a career that includes making starts for five different teams with an accumulated completion percentage below 60%, a touchdown to interception ratio that is nearly even, a sub 80 QB rating, and an overall record of 18-42 as a starter.

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?

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.
