Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 41-10 regime ending loss to the Buffalo Bills
The New York Jets laid down to die in MetLife Stadium this afternoon, as Matt Barkley (!) and the Buffalo Bills, who had managed 20 points over the past 3 weeks, ran it up in a 41-10 victory. Any shreds of delusion around this failed Jets regime, that is now 23-35 over 58 games, have firmly been put to bed. The Jets are no better than they were 4 years ago when they laid down to die against the Buffalo in Detroit and received a similar whooping. The myth is over, no matter how much media posturing continues to take place.
Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 13-6 loss to the Miami Dolphins
When you are working on a 8 year playoff drought, there are many bad football games along the way. The New York Jets added one to their recent Mount Rushmore of incompetence today in a 13-6 tic-tac-toe match against the nearly equally incompetent Miami Dolphins. It was a tour de force of trash as the Jets porous game management and haphazard roster building was on full display alongside a career worst game from their rookie quarterback, Sam Darnold.

The New York Jets were comically short handed on the offensive side of the football today due to a rash of injuries. Without their three best skill position players available (Quincy Enunwa, Robby Anderson, Bilal Powell), they rolled out a mish mash of Jermaine Kearse, Deontay Burnett, Andre Roberts, Trenton Cannon, a seemingly hobbled Isaiah Crowell and recently signed Rishard Matthews at receiver and running back.
Considering the circumstances expecting a Jets loss on the road was reasonable, however the organization playing like they expected to lose and playing like they welcomed a competitive loss is a problem. This is the culture of mediocrity we discussed last week and have talked about ad nauseous on this site. Today was another perfect demonstration of it in an uninspiring 24-10 loss to the Chicago Bears.
Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 37-17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings…
Despite being undermanned on both sides of the football, particularly with a recent rash of injuries, the New York Jets had opportunities to potentially steal a game against a superiorly talented Minnesota Vikings team. Unfortunately, they did not take advantage of those opportunities and the Vikings finally broke through in the second half to slam their foot down on the gas pedal en route to a runaway 37-17 victory. It is not overly surprising the Jets lost this game by double digits but it was frustrating to see them make mistakes that had nothing to do with the talent disparity.
Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 42-34 win over the Indianapolis Colts…
The New York Jets moved their record back to .500 today with a convincing 42-34 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. This was a game filled with big plays and receivers running wide open down the field for both offenses. The Jets defense spent the afternoon bending but not breaking and making massive plays that compensated for the yardage and points they let Andrew Luck compile. Offensively, Sam Darnold built on last week’s strong performance and outside of a first half interception played a nearly flawless game. Jets fans should be encouraged by the team handling business at home in back to back weeks and for seeing their team exceed 30 points three times in Sam Darnold’s first six games.
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.
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.

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.
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…
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.
