In Review – New York Jets Statistical Objectives for 2017

Dan Essien reviews the statistical objectives for the New York Jets in this past season…

As we head into the offseason, it’s always good to take a look at expectations from before the season to get a better idea of the road ahead. Before training camp started, we made statistical objectives for key players on offense and defense. We focused on the players whose contributions were most anticipated. A great deal of roster moves, injuries, and unexpected decisions affected these objectives throughout the year, even just before the regular season started. Let’s highlight a few key players which were able to meet and even exceed their objectives and those fell well short.

New York Jets – General Manager Debates Lack Nuance

Joe Caporoso on Mike Maccagnan’s tenure as the team’s General Manager and how it fits into the Jets recent history…

One of the more entertaining components of the 2017 NFL playoffs on Twitter was watching (hopefully) semi serious debates break out on #JetsTwitter about former team GM John Idzik, as the Jacksonville Jaguars won a pair of playoff games (Idzik is an Assistant GM with the team). The New York media jumped into the fray with a few articles documenting his time with the team and speculating on his future. It is the type of the storyline that only pops up when a team is mired in the third longest playoff drought in the NFL. Along with the historical rehashing of Idzik’s tenure comes an inevitable evaluation of current GM Mike Maccagnan’s tenure with the team. Since nuance is dead, especially in 280 characters or less on Twitter. The discussion of both evolves into predictable  extremes without any shades of grey.

Let’s give an assessment of Maccagnan’s overall tenure to date and how it fits comparatively into recent team history.

New York Jets – The Kirk Cousins Question

Joe Caporoso breaks down the case for the New York Jets to sign Kirk Cousins this offseason…

The primary goal of the New York Jets offseason is to figure out the quarterback position. Mike Maccagan and Todd Bowles will not be here in 2019 if they do not find a satisfactory answer and the league’s third longest playoff drought will continue to drag along on a rope towed by journeymen castoffs and failed middled round picks. The first domino to fall in the quarterback chase will be Washington Redskins free agent Kirk Cousins, who is in line to become the highest paid player in the NFL when free agency opens. The debate about Cousins’ value and the intelligence of the Jets chasing him is going to be a staple of any offseason discussion around the team, so let’s break it down.

New York Jets – Three Positions To Target In Free Agency

Michael Nania with the three positions the New York Jets should focus on in free agency

At this point, you are probably well aware the New York Jets are primed to be one of the most cash-laden teams in this year’s free agency period. According to Spotrac, the Jets currently have the 4th-most cap space in the NFL, and with a few cuts could find themselves with upwards of $100 million at their fingertips to rebuild a roster that is in dire need of talent infusion.
