Clay’s NFL Draft Cheat Sheet – Week 8

Clayton Smarslok with his weekly college football cheat sheet…

What a week in college football! There’s the saying, “Everyone loves an underdog,” and if that is the case, everyone had a great Saturday during week seven. There were seven ranked teams, (four in the top-10) that lost to a team either ranked lower than them or weren’t even ranked. That doesn’t include the other five ranked opponents that let the game go down to the wire. That was an exciting week that’ll be hard to top but let’s see week eight bares in comparison.

New York Jets Coaching Report Card – Week Six

Clayton Smarslok with his weekly New York Jets coaching report card

Coming off a big win against the Broncos last week, the Jets were looking to get back to .500 on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts in week six. Usually these games end up in disappointment but after a 42-34 win, things may be looking up for the New York Jets.

After a very entertaining week six of the college football season where three top-10 teams found their first loss of the season, we now enter week seven that contains some of the best games at this point of the season. No… Alabama is still not playing a good team but there are still three matchups between top-17 teams to watch today. Between that and prospects building their brand for the draft, it should be an excitement filled Saturday.

Clayton Smarslok with his week 5 New York Jets Coaching Report Card…

The first quarter of the season was not what the team was expecting. However, just like the first game of that quarter, this quarter started with a bang! The 34-16 week five win over the Denver Broncos was much needed to get the team back on the right track. Here’s how the coaches graded out last Sunday.

Clayton Smarslok with his weekly cheat sheet for the weekend of college football…

New York Jets Coaching Report Card – Week 4

Clayton Smarslok with his weekly New York Jets coaching report card…

Going into the season I didn’t expect all that much from this Jets team. I thought in a good year they would get 8 or 9 wins but more likely ending with 6 or 7. With expectations not quite that high, this has managed to be even more disappointing than I thought it could be. In the midst of a three game losing streak, there are still too many mistakes all around the team. Again, the loss to the Jaguars was pretty much expected but it was how they got that loss that hurts.

New York Jets Coaching Report Card – Week 3

Clayton Smarslok with a New York Jets coaching report card through three weeks…

Even though the Jets were playing the Browns, who hadn’t won a game in almost two years, it was not like they were playing the same old Browns. Cleveland was coming off two solid performances against the likes of the Steelers and Saints resulting in a 0-1-1 record, which could and should have been 2-0. So seeing the final score be 21-17 on the road against what has proven to be a tough opponent in the early going was not surprising. What was surprising was how they got to that final score and these four have a lot to do with it.

After watching a brutal loss to the Browns the other night it’ll be nice to watch some football knowing I can’t be disappointed.
