Film Room: Breaking Down Dee Milliner’s Recent Play and What It Means

Mike O’Connor examines the recent play and growth from Dee Milliner. Is he going to be the right player in the starting second corner spot?

After Dee Milliner’s performance versus the Saints a week ago, some heralded him as a player who finally overcame the rookie hump to become a solid starter. On the other hand, some fans have stuck with the bust label that they prematurely gave him this season, because his game was somewhat overblown by a few splash plays. Both of these reactions are far too extreme to boast about after we have had such a small exposure to the rookie (only four games).

Turn On The Jets Film Room: Kenrick Ellis, The Forgotten Man

Cole Patterson with a closer look at New York Jets NT Kenrick Ellis, a key component of the defense

The New York Jets have had a string of success in recent years in regards to the big-men that anchor the defense. Shaun Ellis, Kris Jenkins, Mike DeVito, Sione Pouha, and now, Muhammad Wilkerson highlight the bunch. Much has been made of the current incarnation of the Jets defensive line that features three first round picks in Wilkerson, Quinton Coples, and Sheldon Richardson. These three will be keys to the Jets success, both defensively and overall, for the foreseeable future. However, Kenrick Ellis, the forgotten man of the Jets defensive line rotation, holds a good deal of the Jets defensive fate in his massive hands.

Turn On The Jets Film Room: New York Jets Safety Jaiquawn Jarrett

Mike O’Connor breaks down the film on New York Jets safety Jaiquawn Jarrett from his Temple days. Can he live up to his sudden hype?

Whether you have come to grips with it or not, this 2013 New York Jets are essentially starting from scratch at numerous positions due to their depleted talent level heading into the year. As a result, multiple players are going to be given larger roles and opportunities than their current talent and development levels merit. This process will find some key pieces for the Jets in the future, while also weeding out those who aren’t going to stick.

Turn On The Jets Film Room – Braylon Edwards & Clyde Gates

The Turn On The Jets film room breaks down the tape on New York Jets wide receivers Braylon Edwards and Clyde Gates

Turn On The Jets is back in the film room today to break down the tape on New York Jets wide receivers Braylon Edwards and Clyde Gates. Recently acquired (for the third time since 2009), Edwards has a good chance to walk into major reps because of how thin the team’s depth chart is. Gates was a role player last season who is off to a strong start in training camp, leading to some thinking he can be a major factor in 2013. For this article we went through their 2012 offensive reps, let’s see what we found…

Turn On The Jets Film Room – Oday Aboushi: Guard or Tackle?

Mike Nolan steps into the TOJ Film Room to take a look at Rookie OL Oday Aboushi to determine where he might fit in the Jets offense.

If you search the internet for anything about Oday Aboushi, you will find a lot more hits than the typical 5th round pick. Most of the articles are about how he is one of the first Palestinian-Americans to play in the NFL.  The more I read about Oday Aboushi the more impressed I am with him as a person. In fact, he was once honored at the US State Department by Hillary Clinton for being an inspirational Muslim athlete. Now that the dust has settled in the aftermath of the NFL Draft and Jets fans have learned a little bit about who Oday Aboushi is as a person, it is time to figure out who he is as a player and where he might be able to fit in the Jets’ offense.

New York Jets Defense – Who Can Play Slot Corner?

Joe Caporoso goes into the film to explain the Jets 4-2 nickel slide defense and who could play slot corner next year

One of Rex Ryan’s favorite defenses last season was the 4-2 nickel slide. We discussed it briefly in this article overviewing the Jets defense but basically it replaces a linebacker with an extra defensive back, who flexes out over the slot receiver, while the Jets move down to a 4 man front.

One of the most critical positions in this defense and one of the most critical positions in today’s NFL for any defense is the slot corner. Here are a few different articles discussing the position in depth from Pro Football Focus and ESPN but generally it is your nickel back, who will be responsible for covering the slot receiver, along with playing in the box to provide run support and in Rex Ryan’s defense will be asked to blitz off the edge relatively frequently.

Turn On The Jets Film Room – Stephen Hill – Hope For 2013?

Joe Caporoso steps into the film room and takes a closer look at Stephen Hill’s rookie year

Throughout the off-season we will step into the film room and provide a closer look at various players on the New York Jets roster. If there is a player in particular you’d like to see a review on, leave a note in the comment section or shoot us a Tweet with the hashtag #TOJFilmRoom

The New York Jets spent a 2nd round pick on wide receiver Stephen Hill in the 2012 NFL Draft. Possessing an elite combination of size (6-4, 215 pounds) and speed (4.36 forty time), Hill has immense physical potential as a NFL wide receiver but there were a few concerning things about him coming out of Georgia Tech.
