Dalbin Osorio with TOJ Pick Six of questions facing the New York Jets heading into August…
You smell that, Jets fans? That is most definitely the smell of optimism and football returning, as we have reached the two-weeks-away-from-the-Green-&-White-Scrimmage portion of the off-season. We have a new coach that’s been here for about six months, and a new general manager that’s only been here for what feels like six days. It’s year two of Sam Darnold, with an influx of talent on both sides of the ball, and a puncher’s chance of ending a too-long playoff drought. There’s still a few questions this team needs answered so, like a Pat Mahomes errant cross body throw that lands in the arms of Jamal Adams in January to seal a playoff win, let’s take this pick six to the house.
Dalbin Osorio on the New York Jets decision to hire Joe Douglas as their next GM
It wasn’t “normal”, despite numerous instances in recent history showing that it definitely was. It was viewed as unorthodox, when a new head coach may or may not have pushed a bad general manager out because he wasn’t as much of a maniac as he wanted. Fans freaked out when that same head coach, as interim GM, jettisoned players that realistically should’ve been moved months ago.
The circus was back, they said, because Owner Chris Johnson saw in 3 months what alot of people had already seen enough of: Mike Maccagnan was bad at his job and he needed to go. All Maccagnan had shown a penchant for was being able to spend Woody Johnson’s money two offseasons over, and to not pass on high ceiling prospects when he was picking in the top six. Maccagnan had not shown an ability to scout skill position players beyond the first round, Jordan Jenkins and Robby Anderson notwithstanding, and the draft misses were piling up.
Dalbin Osorio with his top 22 players in the 2019 NFL Draft
In honor of tonight’s draft and the release of Avengers Endgame being the culmination of the Infinity Saga for Marvel, I am giving you my top 22 prospects (there have been 22 MCU movies released). Here is the hope that the Jets land a few of these guys, because the NFL is riddled with dumb GMs.
I will, also, return to this an add in my position rankings and best available, as well as thoughts as to where these guys were picked during the weekend.
Enjoy Endgame AND the Draft friends!
Dalbin Osorio with six prospective trades the New York Jets could make tonight
Mike Maccagnan has not been hesitant to make trades around and during the NFL Draft, whether it’s for veteran reinforcements (Ryan Clady) or star players (Brandon Marshall). This year, there seems to be an abundance of guys rumored to be on the block. With the Jets having limited draft capital, it seems like they won’t be getting involved. However, Macchiato Mike would be wise to circle back to teams he has traded with to both add draft capital and/or more talent to a team that is still a few players away from competing for a playoff spot. Here are 6 trades the Jets could make this weekend with partners they’ve had in the past under Mike Maccagnan, as well as who i’d take with the picks received using Matt Miller’s mock draft from this morning as a guide:
Dalbin Osorio with initial reaction the New York Jets trading for OG Kelechi Osemele
With the league’s official legal tampering season a few hours away from beginning, the New York Jets have kicked off their offseason work under new Head Coach Adam Gase. Their first move? Sending a 2019 5th round pick to the Oakland Raiders for RG Kelechi Osemele and a 6th round pick.

Dalbin Osorio with six free agents connected to the current New York Jets coaching staff they could target
The Pick Six is back like we re-signed Ryan Fitzpatrick, as we turn our attention to arguably the most important off-season for the New York Jets. Faster than Paulie can lose a round to me in What’s Your Point, the beginning of the league year is a week away. Armed with almost $100M in cap space, and a few difference makers set to potentially hit the market, the New York Jets need to be in on just about everybody as they try to end playoff drought that’s nearing TEN seasons. Instead of giving you only guys that I would target overall, I wanted to give you a list of guys the team can realistically target that have a connection to the current coaching staff. Let’s do what Sam Darnold shouldn’t do on his first snap next season, and return this pick six:
Dalbin Osorio with his dream offseason if the New York Jets hire Kliff Kingsbury as the Head Coach
With news that the New York Jets are interviewing former Jets QB, Texas Tech HC, and current USC OC Kliff Kingsbury, it made sense to see what a probable Kingsbury coaching staff would look and should look like. Alot of Jets fans thoroughly enjoyed the Jets young nucleus, led by Jamal Adams, openly pining for the former Jets QB, but if you look closer maybe the signs were there all along: Maccagnan signed Case Keenum (Kingsbury QB), traded up for Baker Mayfield (Kingsbury QB), signed Davis Webb (another Kingsbury QB) and Brian Heimerdinger’s dad was Kliff’s OC when he was in New York. I think the front office is in unison here.
At the bottom, you will also see a probable Kingsbury/Maccagnan off-season with players signed, traded, and a mock draft. Let’s dive right in:
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:
Dalbin Osorio with a V1 version of his dream New York Jets offseason
With the attention rightfully turning to the off-season, and the Jets once again armed with a treaure chest of cap space and a chance to quickly turn their team around with a rookie QB here is my dream off-season for Gang Green. First, let’s start with what we know:
