New York Jets – Separating Record From Talent

Joe Caporoso on why record does not always reflect talent level

The New York Jets are widely predicted to be one of the worst teams in the NFL in 2017. Despite optimism on the potential of many players drafted in 2015 and 2016, they are unproven at a high number of positions. It is fair to argue they have the least talented roster in the NFL. Yet, talent doesn’t always match record output.

New York Jets – Release of Harris & Decker Could Hurt In Future

Scott Mason on the New York Jets handling of David Harris and Eric Decker

What happened in Florham Park Tuesday may have ramifications far beyond 2017.

In case you missed it, the Jets released ILB David Harris and WR Eric Decker, two of their best players, but two veterans on a rebuilding team that is trending toward youth.

I get what the Jets are doing.  I just don’t get why they are doing it now.

TOJ Sidelines – Darron Lee & Why Talent Is Not Outweighing Baggage

Dalbin Osorio on why Darron Lee has not been worth the trouble so far…

The New York Jets are entering year three of the Todd Bowles/Mike Maccagnan Era and are under 100 days from kicking this thing off. The Jets are attempting an earnest rebuild, if you ignore them choosing to pay Josh McCown six million dollars to teach Christian Hackenberg how to propel himself into the endzone while an underachieving safety and an undersized inside linebacker dive right at him. This was supposed to be year one of that actual rebuild, but the Jets cannot seem to get out of their own way. Even as the Jets randomly released long time starter and defensive leader David Harris on June 6th, it is still not the strangest event involving an inside linebacker in the last 72 hours.

New York Jets – The Optics Of Rebuilding

Joe Caporoso explores why New York Jets fans have more patience for a rebuild than they did a few years ago…

New York Jets fans have embraced low expectations for the 2017 season. There is more comfort than usual with the word “rebuilding” and already consistent chatter about positioning in the 2018 NFL Draft. This is year three of the Mike Maccagnan/Todd Bowles regime. Their current record is 15-17 with zero playoff appearances. It is fair to anticipate that record will remain under .500 and with zero playoff appearances after this season, yet the pitchforks are not out for Maccagnan, like they were for John Idzik by October of his second season. What has changed in these few shorts years and what does it have to do with personality, optics and football?
