New York Jets – What Could They Have Done Differently?

Joe Caporoso with alternate decisions the New York Jets could have made in recent years…

Heading into year three of the Mike Maccagnan/Todd Bowles regime, the New York Jets have fully hit the reset the button. After two years of missing the playoffs, they have cleared the roster of nearly all veterans and are entering the season projected by most as one of the worst, if not the worst, team in the NFL. Many are anticipating a top five pick to compliment what should be 70-80 million dollars in cap space to spend, after further veteran subtractions are made. 

What could Maccagnan have done different throughout his first two years plus on the job to avoid likely starting his GM career with three straight years of missing the playoffs? The response to the question on Twitter has led to an interesting range of responses. Here is an overview of a few different paths that could have been taken. We’ll also discuss in this week’s Roundtable

Ten Years Of Blogging – Now, What Did You Learn?

Joe Caporoso with what he has learned through ten years of blogging about his favorite but generally bad football team…

I have been blogging about the New York Jets for roughly ten years, most of them through this website. It has been an interesting journey that has yielded me a full time career in sports while also sucking away chunks of time to devour junk food on Twitter and get irrationally annoyed about silly things. I decided to take a step back and offer observations about being a fan who blogs about their favorite team. I spoke with Corey Griffin and Mike Dussault on the topic as well and their insight is included below.

New York Jets – How to Watch Football When Your Team is Losing

Daniel Essien on the best ways to enjoy football when your favorite team is losing…

There’s no guarantee that the Jets are going to be bad. There’s just a really high likelihood that this upcoming season won’t be very enjoyable from the fan’s perspective. It’s easy to just be a sack of sadness and whine whenever things inevitably go wrong every game. But there are better ways to watch football when the Jets aren’t piling up wins.

NFL Draft – 2018 Top QB Prospects Tracking

Joe Malfa begins his season long tracking of the top projected quarterbacks in the 2017 NFL Draft

The writing is on the wall for the New York Jets in 2017. With one of the worst rosters in the league (arguably the worst), Gang Green is pretty much a lock to land a top-five pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

The organization has been searching for a true franchise QB for decades, and it appears to be a good year to be bad.

The 2018 draft class is QB-heavy, with three top prospects that have scouts salivating: Sam Darnold (USC), Josh Rosen (UCLA) and Josh Allen (Wyoming).

One of these three players may receive a phone call from Mike Maccagnan on the night of April 26, so you might want to watch a few games and familiarize yourselves with the potential future of the Jets’ franchise.

Here is a guide to each of these QB’s biggest games of 2017:
