Every week Cole Patterson will break down the performance of the New York Jets tight ends. Here is his take on week seven.

New York Jets – Week 9 Linebacker Grade Sheet

TOJ- New York Jets & The AFC Playoff Picture Entering Week 10

To quote Heath Ledger’s iconic turn as The Joker, “and….here….we…go.” That dreaded “P” word has started to crop up around Florham Park. Yes, the New York Jets stand in control of their playoff destiny entering the bye week. They sport a 5-4 record featuring signature wins against the New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, and Atlanta Falcons. If the regular season ended today, the New York Jets would travel to Indianapolis to take on the AFC North leading Colts. The Jets also have a realistic chance at the AFC East title as they only trail New England by 2 games and face the easier schedule. We at TOJ felt that, with seven weeks left in the season, Jets fans would appreciate updated playoff scenarios on a weekly basis. Let’s get right to it.

NOTE: “WInnable Games” – I don’t think any game is winnable in this league full of parity but I am going with the assumption that, more often than not, the better team will win.

TOJ – New York Jets Running Back Grade Sheet (Week 9)

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio grades the New York Jets running backs after their Week 9 victory against the New Orleans Saints.

Grading Scale

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.

Game Balls: “Saint No Thang”

Dan Marcus hands out Game Balls after the Jets 26-20 win over the Saints

And the Roller Coaster ride that is the 2013 New York Jets season continues as Rex and his bunch shook off the debacle that was the Cincinnati game and pulled off a surprising 26-20 win. At 5-4, the predicted “Worst Team in the League” is sitting pretty going into the Bye Week as they now have two weeks to get healthy and prepare for the Bills whose Quarterback situation is one of the most unpredictable in the league. I won’t even think of uttering the “P” word with seven games to go but the back-end of the schedule is shaping up to be pretty interesting and at the very least, we will see some meaningful football through December. However, before we look forward let’s look back at yesterday’s game and paint up some Game Balls.

Initial Reaction – The Good Time Roller Coaster, Jets Upset Saints

Initial reaction to the Jets impressive upset victory over the New Orleans Saints, 26-20

The 2013 New York Jets roller coaster swung in a positive direction today with their most impressive win of the season, 26-20 over the previously 6-1 New Orleans Saints. Today was a banner day for Rex Ryan who schemed up a terrific defensive game plan that flummoxed Drew Brees all day, along with Marty Mornhinweg who has an offense that is producing despite featuring a collection of mid-season acquisitions at the pass catching positions. You can start thinking about it Jets fans…the playoffs are on the radar for this team.

Week Eight Secondary Grade Sheet- How Can The Jets Contain The Saints’ Passing Offense?

The secondary grade sheet makes its valiant return this week, but unfortunately, it comes off of a week to forget in the Jets’ back end. The Jets secondary came to a crashing halt versus Andy Dalton and the Bengals last week, who managed to lose to the Dolphins last night (that says a LOT).

TOJ Week 9 Stock Watch & Gambling Advice

I can’t be the only person out there who thinks this NFL season needs to slow down, can I? I mean, it’s November and week 9 has arrived.
