Joe Caporoso with an initial reaction to the New York Jets preseason debut against the Atlanta Falcons

The New York Jets opened their 2018 preseason tonight with a win over the Atlanta Falcons 17-0. Most importantly, it was an encouraging debut for rookie quarterback Sam Darnold and newly signed free agent Teddy Bridgewater. Both  led first half touchdown drives, which was more than enough for a Jets defense that was flying around all night en route to shutting Atlanta’s offense out.

The New York Jets selected USC quarterback Sam Darnold with the third overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, landing arguably the best signal caller in this class. Despite an onslaught of Baker Mayfield/Josh Rosen pre-draft chatter, it was a surprise that Darnold was available and it isn’t shocking the Jets pulled the trigger on him . Here are a few initial thoughts:

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Acquire 3rd Pick Overall from the Indianapolis Colts

Dalbin Osorio with initial reaction to the New York Jets trade up to the 3rd overall pick…

Adam Schefter just reported that the New York Jets have traded up from the 6th pick in the NFL Draft to the 3rd pick overall. The cost is as follows: the Jets swapped firsts, traded both of their seconds, and a second round pick last year. The third pick is worth 2200 points, with the 6th pick being worth 1600 points. That means the Jets, per the value chart, had to make up 600 points. Pick 37 was only worth 530 points, so they needed another 70 points. They threw in their other second, which was worth 410 points. Per the value chart, the Jets actually overpaid. However, they knew they needed to get up to the top 3 in order to have a legitimate shot at the player this franchise so desperately needs.

Initial Reaction – New Year’s Tank, Patriots Wipe Jets To End Season

The New York Jets wrapped up their second consecutive 5-11 season today with an uncompetitive loss to the New England Patriots. Their defense fought in the first half but ultimately cracked against a far superior unit and from having zero support from a completely dead offense led by soon to be CFL quarterback Bryce Petty.

Initial Reaction – Jets Have No Quarterback, Tank Picks Up Speed

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 14-7 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers…

The New York Jets lost today at MetLife Stadium 14-7 to the Los Angeles Chargers. It was an uneventful, sloppy game that only highlighted the team’s shortcomings at the game’s most critical positions. Their quarterback was awful. Their pass rush was awful. When it mattered, their coverage was awful. Rinse and repeat. The good news? The team moved from the 10th pick in the NFL Draft to the 8th pick, thanks to a Bengals and Bears victory.

Initial Reaction – Competitive Tank, Jets Show Up But Can’t Keep Pace With Saints

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 31-19 loss to the New Orleans Saints

Unlike last week, the New York Jets showed up ready to play on the road today. Led by their defense, they hung around the superiorly talented New Orleans Saints en route to a 31-19 loss. They forced three turnovers and settled down after a slow start but received no support on the other side of the football from an offense that was largely inefficient, thanks to erratic play from Bryce Petty and conservative play calling. The team is now 5-9 overall and 1-6 on the road.

Initial Reaction – Regression To The Mean, New York Jets Get Reality Check In Denver

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 23-0 loss to the Denver Broncos

The New York Jets did not play football today. They appeared at Denver’s stadium, went through some “football like” motions en route to getting their teeth kicked in 23-0. At no moment was this game competitive and the Jets appeared to officially pack it in at some point early in the third quarter. They lost starting quarterback Josh McCown, likely for the season, with a broken hand. Despite the feel good vibes from beating a mediocre Kansas City team, the Jets remain a well below average organization who is now three games under .500 and 1-5 on the road this season. Since their 3-2 start, they are 2-6.
