TOJ- New York Jets Running Back Grade Sheet Week 14

Grading Scale

I grade each play on a 1 to 5 scale. Loss of yardage is rated a 0, no gain is rated a 1, a gain of 1-3 yards is rated a 2, gains of 4-6 are rated a 3, gains of 7-9 yards or are rated a 4, and gains of 10+ yards are rated a 5. TDs increase your overall grade by 10 points, and fumbles decrease your score by -5. I do it like this to factor in receptions, reward positive plays accordingly, and penalize negative plays accordingly. The total from the grades of each individual play are then converted to letter grades, with As representing (50 or higher), Bs (39-49), Cs (29-39), Ds (19-29), and Fs (0-18) being given out for total performance). Performance of the offensive line and available running space is also factored in.

New York Jets & the AFC Playoff Picture Entering Week 12

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio breaks down the AFC Playoff Picture and the New York Jets standing heading into Week 12.

The New York Jets squandered a very good opportunity during Week 11. A win over the 3-7 Bills, coupled with a loss by the New England Patriots, would’ve put the Jets one game back of their arch rival in the division with 6 to play. Instead, the Jets didn’t take care of their business and were routed by the Bills. It was a horrible performance by a team that now finds itself faced with the daunting task of beating the defending Super Bowl Champion Ravens on the road. Let’s take a look at the AFC Playoff Picture heading into Week 12.

Why The New York Jets Do Not Have a Quarterback Controversy

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio on why the New York Jets don’t have a QB controversy.

“He’s going to have a tough time in New York,” an NFC scout said, speaking on the condition of anonymity. “Right now, he’s coming off as a spoiled, pampered brat.”

The quote above was attributed to an anonymous NFC scout after the New York Jets drafted Geno Smith 39th overall in the 2013 NFL draft. All he’s done since being drafted in the second round is lead the Jets to a 5-5 record through 11 games. I repeat, that’s ALL he’s done. He is 10 games into his career and is completing 56% of his passes for 2100 yards, 8 TDs, and 16 INTs. He leads the league in 4th quarter comebacks with 4, and has shown glimpses into what the future can be like once the game begins to slow down for him. After these performances, the New York media that said he would have a tough time have crowned him the franchise QB the Jets have lacked since Broadway Joe Namath.
