Deep Dive – New York Jets Passing Game Flexibility

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets passing game options and flexibility with their current depth chart

The New York Jets have an intriguing collection of pass catchers heading into the 2019 NFL Draft. It is a far from a perfect group and could use further depth but there has been a tangible improvement in talent, explosiveness and versatility compared to last year’s group. Last season the top five most targeted players on the team were Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, Quincy Enunwa, Chris Herndon and Elijah McGuire. This season (and this is unlikely to change regardless of what happens in the draft) Kearse and McGuire have been swapped out with Jamison Crowder and Le’Veon Bell, respectively.

New York Jets – How Do You Miss The Playoffs 8 Years In A Row?

How does a NFL team miss the playoffs for 8 seasons in a row? Joe Caporoso walks down the winding road of New York Jets missteps since 2010 that have led to the franchise’s worst stretch of football since the 1970s…

The New York Jets are not one of the most successful franchises in NFL history. You already know that. After winning their lone Super Bowl in 1968, they returned to the playoffs the following year only to get knocked out by the eventual champion Kansas City Chiefs. After that, Jets football became a wasteland. The team did not make a single playoff appearance from 1970-1980. They went 11 straight season (11!) without a winning season before finally breaking the drought in 1981 with a 10-5-1 record and first round playoff exit.

New York Jets – A Culture Of Celebrated Mediocrity

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets prolonged cultural of mediocrity and how it is impacting expectations around the organization

We’re 4-5. We have nothing to be overconfident about.” – Todd Bowles

There are still some areas we need to improve  upon – We’re still only 4-5.” – Mike Maccagnan

The above quotes from the current New York Jets Head Coach and General Manager were given shortly before their favored team would take on the reeling Tampa Bay Bucs, in a game they would lose 15-10. Despite talking about avoiding a let down and being overconfident, the Jets played like a team who thought they would be entitled to a win. It seems ludicrous that a 4-5 team who hasn’t made the playoffs since 2010 could play in such a way but that is exactly what happened.

It has been an uneven three years for Bowles and Maccagnan but their quotes heading into the Tampa Bay game showed an appropriate alignment on an important reality: the Jets are mediocre and people need to stop being content with it if this organization ever wants to pull itself out of the purgatory muck of mediocrity they have been mired in the past seven years.
