Statistics let us remove emotional stimuli and focus on the hard truth of what happens. But we need to place statistics into their environment to gain context and understand what’s really happening. Bryce Petty having 60% accuracy doesn’t tell you any information, but 60% accuracy throwing against man coverage gives you something to work with. That’s the purpose of this season-long project.
Joe Caporoso breaks down the film on the New York Jets passing game in their week 5 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers
The New York Jets offense continued to sputter against the Pittsburgh Steelers, with a 31-13 loss. This is a team who has scored two legitimate touchdowns over the past three games. Do not be fooled by box score scouting from Sunday, the Jets offense and particularly their passing offense continued to be anemic and ineffective. Let’s dive into the #TAPE…
Joe Caporoso breaks down how the New York Jets offense could evolve in 2016
The New York Jets offense surprised many with their performance in 2015. Offensive Coordinator Chan Gailey deserves credit for getting the most out of career journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick and a middling offensive line. How can Gailey continue to evolve the Jets offense this season so they do not take a step back in 2016?
Edward Gorelik breaks down Geno Smith’s 2014 season with context stats
We all knew it would come to this point. There’s no way to create an article about Ryan Fitzpatrick’s stats in context without also making one for Geno Smith. Well, now everyone’s getting their wish. It’s important to look at players within the context of their situation to separate their issues and strengths from their teams. While stats never tell the full story, adding a numerical value lets us remove the emotional highs and lows to fully process what occurred. It also allows us to quantify events in order to battle narratives and myths…
Edward Gorelik breaks down Ryan Fitzpatrick’s 2015 season
It’s impossible to evaluate anything in the NFL without understanding the situation, responsibilities, and expectations of a player within the context of their surroundings. Otherwise, it’s too easy to credit them for things they don’t actually do or blame them for things that aren’t on them to do. Ryan Fitzpatrick’s 2015 season came on one of the Jets most talented offensive rosters in their entire history…

In a Thursday night match up that came down to the final seconds, the Jets lost a tight one once again. On the bright side, outside of a few brain lapses, the defense seems to be finding consistency.

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).

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.
