New York Jets – What About The Middle Class?

Joe Caporoso on the questions around the middle class of the New York Jets roster

The New York Jets have struggled in recent NFL Drafts, to put it politely. We don’t need to rehash the abnormally high volume of players selected from 2015-2018 who are no longer here (we can save that until after the final 53 is confirmed) but it creates a burden for the roster to overcome as they deal with the normal perils of NFL training camp. Injuries (Avery Williamson) happen. Suspensions (Chris Herndon) happen. When they do, it is critical for the “middle class” of your roster to rise to the occasion to properly support the top talent. 

This Jets roster is more “top heavy” than it has been since 2015. Jamal Adams, CJ Mosley and Le’Veon Bell are legitimate All-Pro candidates. Sam Darnold is expected to take a major leap in year two. Quinnen Williams was the third pick in the NFL Draft. Kelechi Osemele has been an All-Pro when healthy and former top six pick Leonard Williams is entering the season with high expectations in a contract year. Yet, it may be the lesser known names who make or break the Jets ending their eight year playoff drought…

New York Jets Top Five – Positions Of Need

Joe Belic with a New York Jets top five on their biggest roster needs

OK, so, Snoopy is dead to me, and preliminary bragging rights belong to Giants fans until the teams meet again on November 10. Regardless, Jets fans should be elated with how seamlessly the Jets’ first-team moved the ball during the opening drive. Crowder and Herndon performed as advertised, and Sam made all the right moves—well, except for one errant pass, but let’s not get into that. Nevertheless, the second and third teams didn’t fare as well, and many questions still remain. In this week’s “Joe Jet 5,” I breakdown five glaring weaknesses the Jets need to address.  (more…)

New York Jets Preseason Week Two – Three Things To “Watch”

Joe Caporoso with three things to watch for in the New York Jets second preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons…

The New York Jets second preseason game (and first road game) is tomorrow night against the Atlanta Falcons. Their opener had an entertaining first drive, a brutally long rain delay and then a bunch of sloppy football from the backups…par for the course in the preseason. The starters should see a little more extended action against Atlanta. Here is what else you should be watching out for…

New York Jets – What Is Joe Douglas’ Next Move?

Clayton Smarslok on what the New York Jets next roster move should be

It took a long eight-plus months but Jets football is finally back, new uniforms and all. Thursday night, the Jets took on the New York Giants for the “Snoopy Bowl”, if that’s still even a thing, and went home with the loss. As you can see in the Boss’s reaction to the pre-season opener, there was some good but there was definitely some bad as well.
