New York Jets: Rebuild Reality Check

Dan Essien with a comprehensive review of the New York Jets “rebuild” and how it compares to other teams in similar situations league wide in recent years…

The New York Jets had a very hopeful offseason preceding the 2018 regular season.

However, we’ve reached that inevitable point in the season where Jets fans are struggling to balance long term patience with where the on the field product currently is. Here’s the thing: It should be better. However, that statement might not be for the reason you think.

TOJ Instant Reaction: Jets sign Jerry Attaochu

Dan Essien with instant reaction to the New York Jets signing Jeremiah Attaochu.

It’s been a mystery what the Jets plans are for the edge position for this season after the Bears outbid them for Khalil Mack amidst a bunch of roster cuts. With Jordan Jenkins, Josh Martin, and Brandon Copeland the only true OLB’s on the roster many wondered if they’d address the position again before week 1. Well, they made an addition today.

New York Jets Injury Analysis – Elijah McGuire’s Fractured Foot

Ketul Shah breaks down the Elijah McGuire’s injury, how it impacts the backfield and when the New York Jets can expect him back…

As training camp begun, the Jets experienced their first casualty with RB Elijah McGuire suffering a fracture foot that will require surgery later this week. It has been reported that he will miss 3-6 weeks however I am very skeptical of that time frame as a fracture takes at least 6-8 weeks for the bone to completely heal. The basics of rehabilitation include facilitating normal walking mechanics, restoring strength, and initiating football-related activities. An additional few weeks could be necessary to improve  McGuire’s conditioning level as he is going to miss the entire training camp and preseason.
