It was another lackluster Sunday for the Jets as we trudge through the mud towards the end of the season. The Jets kept it competitive in the first half but ultimately melted down in the second half and losing to the Patriots 27-13. Here’s my report card for Week 12. (more…)

New York Jets Dream Offseason Part 2 – Coaching Staff for 2019

Dalbin Osorio

With five games left in the season, and the New York Jets all but assured of another losing season, its time we continue our look towards 2019 with the second installment of our dream off-season. In this part, I will assemble my dream coaching staff. Then, the third post (coming next week), will assemble the dream front office staff. Without much further ado, lets dive right into it:

New York Jets – Would Maccagnan Still Be Safe if Jets Landed Cousins?

Jared Scherl on if Mike Maccagnan’s job security situation would be different if the Jets landed Kirk Cousins this offseason…

It was another ho-hum loss for the 3-8 Jets on Sunday. The Jets have had a tough go this week but be sure to compare odds before you count them out. Given the losing streak, they’re bound to have very favourable odds. Especially with a coaching staff on the hottest of hot seats. Todd Bowles’ eventual firing is a foregone conclusion. Attention now shifts to General Manager Mike Maccagnan and his job status. The common consensus is that he will be retained despite his team’s 23-36 record over his tenure. Although I do not agree with it, the argument for keeping Maccagnan goes something like this: “After the 2016 collapse, he established a long-term rebuilding plan to compete in 2019, and he deserves to see his plan out.” Somewhere in that argument is the idea that he drafted a rookie quarterback this year and no one can expect to win with a rookie quarterback. Thus, next year is when we can truly evaluate Maccagnan’s tenure as GM.

New York Jets Loss Vent – The Foundation Still Needs To Be Built

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets still needing to build a foundation from scratch for their roster long term

A common narrative around the New York Jets is that they have built a strong nucleus, foundation or collection of cornerstones in the previous four years. Once a stronger supporting cast is added around them and the coaching is improved, everything will succinctly click into a masterful demonstration of Mike Maccagnan’s 5-7 year plan in a league where teams regularly turn things around in 1-3 years. Whatever comforting sounding adjective you use to excuse the team’s 23-36 record over the previous four years, it is an exaggeration. The Jets still need to build a foundation. The Jets still need to build a nucleus. The Jets still need cornerstones at premium positions. There is no a foundation currently in place.

Initial Reaction – Meaningless November Football, Jets Ramp Up Tank In Double Digit Loss to Patriots

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 27-13 loss to the New England Patriots…

The New York Jets have established a tradition under the guidance of Mike Maccagnan and Todd Bowles. It is a tradition of having November and December football games be completely meaningless and putting their fans in a position where it makes more sense to root for a loss than a win when they are playing the New England Patriots in November.

The Jets trotted out their rendition of a roster today, comprised of Josh McCown throwing 12 passes to Jermaine Kearse, Isaiah Crowell racking up 30 rushing yards and a defense that managed to sack Tom Brady zero times while forcing no turnovers. They fought today as hard as possible (a change of pace from previous weeks) with their limited weapons but ultimately faded under the weight of limited talent and poor coaching in a 27-13 loss. They have now lost 5 straight games and only scored a grand total of 5 touchdowns in those 5 games, something that should be mathematically impossible in today’s NFL.

2018 NFL Best Bets Against the Spread – Week Twelve

Jake Benaquisto with his weekly NFL Best Bets…

Some thoughts on Week 11 of the NFL:

  1. I think we’re going to be talking about that Chiefs / Rams game for a long time. It was easily the best game of the season, and those young quarterbacks both looked like superstars. I wanted the Chiefs to win, but was happy that they were still able to cover the 3.5 points. 
  2. Pittsburgh didn’t cover, but their comeback win over the Jaguars was impressive. They came out flat and somehow were able to steal the game in the fourth quarter.
  3. The Colts are starting to become one of my favorite ‘NFL Sunday Ticket’ teams to watch. Andrew Luck finally has a strong offensive line in front of him and he’s been playing lights out.
