Mike O’Connor looks at the Jets’ defensive snap counts in depth from Week 12.
Due to Thanksgiving festivities, my usual snaps article comes in a little late this week. Regardless, the snap counts from the Jets’ defense versus the Ravens, which can be found here of this Rex Ryan defense is still as interesting as ever.

Frank Giasone breaks down the tape on the Jets defensive line in week 12
With each Jets loss this season, I find myself sitting down at my computer and harping on the fact that the Jets’ pass rush was once again essentially sabotaged by the declining play of the secondary. It’s become a pretty regular occurrence this season, as opposing offenses have adjusted their game plans to limit the Jets pass rushing opportunities.
And while it wasn’t as prominent in Sunday’s loss at Baltimore as it has been in other losses this season, the issue did rear its head in a couple of extremely unfortunate situations.
So instead of just talking about it again this week, I figured it best to actually show it.

After an abysmal performance in Buffalo, the Jets needed a bounce back win in Baltimore. Unfortunately for Gang Green, the offense came out quite flat once again. On the flip side, the front seven was dominate and continues to beg their secondary for some help. The Ravens did not exactly light up the scoreboard but an anemic offensive performance from the entire Jets offense gave the team no chance to win. Let’s grade out the linebackers, a consistent bright spot for this young squad. Continue reading “New York Jets – Week 12 Linebacker Grades”
TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio grades the New York Jets running backs after Week 12.
I grade each play on a 1 to 5 scale. Loss of yardage is rated a 0, no gain is rated a 1, a gain of 1-3 yards is rated a 2, gains of 4-6 are rated a 3, gains of 7-9 yards or are rated a 4, and gains of 10+ yards are rated a 5. TDs increase your overall grade by 10 points, and fumbles decrease your score by -5. I do it like this to factor in receptions, reward positive plays accordingly, and penalize negative plays accordingly. The total from the grades of each individual play are then converted to letter grades, with As representing (50 or higher), Bs (39-49), Cs (29-39), Ds (19-29), and Fs (0-18) being given out for total performance). Performance of the offensive line and available running space is also factored in.

Joe Caporoso breaks down the New York Jets passing game in week 12
The New York Jets passing game was an unmitigated disaster in week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens. After going through the tape, this was a unit wide failure that likely trickles down from Rex Ryan’s input to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and includes unsteady play from the quarterback, offensive line, tight ends, running backs and wide receivers. It is easy to immediately assess the bulk of the blame on Smith at quarterback and while he did not play well this past Sunday and hasn’t played well the past month, the tape tells a much more complex story. Let’s work through Smith’s dropbacks and see what we find:

Dan Marcus gets wistful about the last Jets quarterback who didn’t regularly turn the ball over
If you told me six years ago that I would be longing for and reminiscent of the Chad Pennington years, I would have told you that you were crazy but here we are and the Jets are no closer to the second of coming of Chad Pennington than they are to the second coming of Joe Namath. Since the Jets traded for Brett Favre in the Summer of 2008 and let Chad go to the Dolphins, the Jets Quarterbacks have turned the ball over at what can be described as a stupid rate.

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets depressing 19-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens
The New York Jets effectively set the game of football back 20-30 years today, as they lost to the Baltimore Ravens 19-3. This was an ugly showing from the Jets, particularly on offense where they served an emphatic reminder of their lack of talent on that side of the football.

Well, that hot streak sure was fun while it lasted. Then week 11 happened and crushed me in a monster way. I went just 5-8-2 and even worse, lost what I called my favorite pick of the season so far as the Patriots lost to the referees — uhh, I mean the Panthers on Monday night. Actually, it’s not really fair to say the refs cost them that game (even though they did) because the Patriots pretty much beat themselves. Their secondary is the gold standard when it comes to proving that Pro Football Focus is merely a tool and not the gospel when it comes to grading football players because despite their high rankings, they are pretty crappy, and Fumbles Ridley is just a horrible player. Can you tell I’m still bitter about that game? Let’s just move on to week 12… Continue reading “TOJ Week 12 NFL Gambling Advice and Picks”
Dan Marcus goes Super Fast Friday to prepare you for Jets/Ravens
The Jets made NFL history last Sunday by becoming the most inconsistent team in league history as the first team to alternate wins and losses through their first 10 games. One can only hope that the trend continues, if only for one more week as the Jets need to bounce back against the Raven in order to stay competitive in the AFC. I won’t rehash the all-too-fresh memories of last week’s debacle so here’s everything you need to know for this Sunday’s game against the Ravens:
