Initial Reaction – Bombs Away, New York Jets Light Up Broncos

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 34-16 win over the Denver Broncos…

We know from week one the New York Jets are capable of hitting on all cylinders, silencing critics who say they have no offensive weapons or pass rush and delivering a convincing win. The problem has been consistency and making sure *that* team shows up every week or at least close to every week. After a three game hiatus, those Jets were back in a 34-16 pummeling of the overmatched Denver Broncos. This was a clinic in all three phases of the football game and an afternoon filled with redemptive performances for players who had been struggling lately. Most importantly, it was a step in the right direction for rookie quarterback Sam Darnold who compiled three touchdown passes, all on plays of 20 yards or longer.

Initial Reaction – Everything Is Bad, Jets Lifeless In 31-12 Loss To Jags…

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets lifeless 31-12 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars…

The New York Jets put on a lifeless display of football this afternoon in Jacksonville, en route to a 31-12 loss to the Jaguars. They were overmatched from the opening whistle and coached a passive, conservative game that seemed geared to lose by as few points as possible instead of actually winning. Nobody thought this was a playoff team in 2018 but this team should be more competitive than this, especially for all the chest bumping they do about changing the culture.

Initial Reaction – Jets Sloppy In Home Opener Loss To Miami

Dalbin Osorio with initial reaction to the New York Jets 20-12 loss to the Miami Dolphins…

The New York Jets outgained the Dolphins, forced multiple  turnovers sacked Ryan Tannehill four times, and somehow found a way to lose thanks to two turnovers from their rookie, bad field position, terrible ball security, and a slew of untimely penalties.

Initial Reaction – Everything Is Awesome, Jets Do Everything In Destruction Of Lions

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets

Well, that was fun. The New York Jets overcame a first play from a hell to throughly dominate the Detroit Lions 48-17. Yes, 48-17. This was not just your run of the mill blowout (which rarely occurs as is in the Jets favor), this was a Christmas Day, it is raining everything Jets fans ever wanted to see in the box score blowout. It was a cleansing primetime party where a long suffering fan base was able to throw their head back in laughter and enjoy the spoils of a potentially very bright future. Let’s dive into the goodness…

Initial Reaction – Darnold A Bright Spot In Sloppy Jets Loss…

Dalbin Osorio with initial reaction to the New York Jets third preseason game against the New York Giants…

The New York Giants traveled to MetLife Stadium today, a long way from home, to take on the New York Jets in their third preseason game. Gang Green had a few questions to take care of in what is generally viewed as the dress rehearsal for the regular season. This game went a long way towards answering some of those questions.

Initial Reaction – Full Preseason, Jets Sluggish In 15-13 Loss To Redskins

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 15-13 preseason loss to the Washington Redskins

Preseason football is not always the most entertaining thing in the world. Tonight was a prime example of that as the New York Jets lost 15-13 to the Washington Redskins. It was a fairly disappointing effort on both sides of the football in the first half. The second half was more encouraging, highlighted by a strong effort from Teddy Bridgewater and Charone Peake.

Initial Reaction – Promising Debut For New York Jets New Look Quarterback Room

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.

Initial Reaction, NFL Draft 2018 – New York Jets Select Quarterback Sam Darnold

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets pick of quarterback Sam Darnold at #3 in the 2018 NFL Draft…

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.
