Context Stats: Bryce Petty vs the Dolphins

Edward Gorelik breaks down Bryce Petty’s performance against Miami with his weekly context stats

Statistics let us remove emotional stimuli and focus on the hard truth of what happens. But we need to place statistics into their environment to gain context and understand what’s really happening. Bryce Petty having 60% accuracy doesn’t tell you any information, but 60% accuracy throwing against man coverage gives you something to work with. That’s the purpose of this season-long project.

Joe Caporoso breaks down New York Jets quarterback Bryce Petty vs. the Miami Dolphins

Despite a competitive first half the New York Jets were ran off the field against the Miami Dolphins 34-13. Similar to the rest of his team, Bryce Petty had a fast start but flamed out as the game progressed. How did the Jets second year quarterback perform against a likely soon to be playoff team? Let’s break down the #TAPE…

How to Rebuild: 2011-2016 Kansas City Chiefs Edition

Daniel Essen with an example of a rebuilding model the New York Jets can follow: The Kansas City Chiefs

The Jets have a history of not quite fully committing to the process of developing sustainable success, but that can change. There are plenty of examples of teams that have rebuilt the right way and become perennial playoff franchises. Not every team’s situation is the same but there are plenty of areas the Jets can learn from. Let’s focus on what the Jets can learn from the Kansas City Chiefs and how they went from being 7-9 in 2011 with a declining roster, to 2-14 in 2012, to winning 41 of their next 62 regular season games.

New York Jets – Who is the Leader of the Franchise?

Mike McLaughlin on the New York Jets lack of leadership

Under Mike Maccagnan and Todd Bowles, the New York Jets have heavily invested in the secondary and defensive line. In a passing NFL, that would seem to be a good idea. The short list of examples below, however, illustrate that style of play matters less than creating a culture.

Initial Reaction – Another Primetime Game, Another Jets Blowout

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 34-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins

The New York Jets were embarrassed in primetime for the third time this season, falling to the Miami Dolphins 34-13. After an encouraging opening drive and a competitive first half, the Jets melted down in the second half on offense, defense and special teams. It was a fully comprehensive loss by one of the NFL’s worst teams in front of 10,000 people mostly rooting for the away team.

New York Jets – No Half Measures, Think 2018

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets need to use the 2017 season to prepare for 2018 and beyond

The New York Jets have a roster that is top heavy with overpaid, declining veterans. The current middle class of the roster is generally depleted due to the cumulative impact of poor mid round drafting over the past five years. There are a handful of usable, young pieces to build around going forward but it is naive to believe this roster does not need a substantial makeover in the coming offseason. This makeover cannot be impeded by half measure decisions that are looked at through a PR based, short term window line of thinking.

New York Jets – How Not to Spend Money

Michael McLaughlin on the New York Jets best and worst deals currently compromising their salary cap

The New York Jets have a spending problem. More specifically, the team has struggled to get value out of the investments it has made in players. While the organization used its last eight first round draft picks on defensive players, the cap hits for the offense and defense in 2016 are nearly identical. The numbers are a little over $67 and $68 million respectively.

As is expected with a 4-9 team, however, the roster is not filled with players outplaying their contracts. Below, I look at some individual players and position groups (this is not an exhaustive list) to evaluate the quality of personnel decisions made. All contract numbers are taken from overthecap.com, and the NFL salary cap for 2016 is 155,270,000. The 2017 cap is not yet known.
