New York Jets 1st & Forever – The Adam Gase Rant

Stephen Russo with his 1st and 10 rant on the New York Jets and Adam Gase

1st…

I’m guilty. I allowed myself to buy in… sort of. I let my desire to remain objective cloud my judgment. Now let me be clear; I was out on the Gase hire when it was made. I was all the way out on it. I was in the “anybody but Gase” camp. But, when they made the hire, I figured I had to make the best of it. I probably gave him more credit than what was due for a 6-2 finish in 2019. I allowed him to convince me here and there with the little things – the quips, the snarky replies to reporters, Sam Darnold’s belief in him, and yes, Chris Simms interview with Connor Rogers on the Badlands podcast. I thought that maybe there was more to him than meets the eye. Maybe there are things that I am not seeing that is going to lead to him being better than what I thought I knew. I even went as far as texting my father that I thought I was “warming up” to Gase on the Thursday before the season opener.

Boy, was I wrong.

New York Jets Secondary Review – Week 2

Michael Meegan breaks down the New York Jets secondary in week 2

The Jets secondary was atrocious on Sunday against San Francisco.  Jimmy Garappolo   carved up the secondary on one leg completing 14 out of 16 passes for 131 yards and 2 touchdowns.  Seeing that the Jets were no threat Nick Mullens played the second half and the Jets struggled to stop him as well.  In a week with very few positives lets hand out some awards!

New York Jets: Week 2 Offensive Review

Dan Essien with a statistical review of the Jets week 2 performance against San Francisco

The Jets offense needs to be under the microscope. This season, this offensive review segment will take a deeper look at how functional this offense is from week to week. We’ll analyze offensive efficiency, play-calling, personnel, and other data points. This will also help us take a deeper look at where Sam Darnold succeeds and where he struggles. I’ll also be marking improvements or regressions against the season average for certain stats. Today let’s go through week 2 vs. San Francisco.

Matt’s Week Two Takes – Jets Keep Getting Worse

Matthew Marciano with observations on the New York Jets week 2 blowout loss

Watching the Jets play another embarrassing game this week, for their home opener, in which they lost to the San Francisco 49ers 31-13, shows just how bad of a season is upon us as Jets fans.

There are many things to point about this week two loss to the 49ers. First off the 49ers were playing, as the game went on, without some of their star players, such as Quarterback Jimmy Garroppolo, WR George Kittle and DE Nick Bosa. Despite some of their best players not on the field from them, the Niners were able to take care of the Jets, which started with the first play from scrimmage from the Niners, a yard touchdown run from Raheem Mostert (who also got injured later in this game).

Initial Reaction – The Worst Team In Football

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to another New York Jets blowout loss, this time to the San Francisco 49ers

I am writing this midway through the fourth quarter as the New York Jets trail 31-6 to the San Francisco 49ers. There may be a few more meaningless stats and developments but today was yet another game that was over in the first half. It was another game the Jets offense did nothing. It was another game their defense looked slow and unprepared. Injuries aren’t an excuse, the 49ers had more (No Jimmy G, No Bosa, No Ford, No Sherman, No Kittle, No Deebo). Playing against a good defense isn’t an excuse, as that is part of playing in the NFL. The Jets are historically incompetent thus far this season and have looked every bit of being the worst team in the NFL…by a wide margin.
