Initial Reaction: Sloppy New York Jets Beat Up On Inferior Raiders

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets sloppy 19-14 opening day victory over the Oakland Raiders

The New York Jets made a frustrating amount of mistakes in their regular season opener. Eleven penalties. Two turnovers, including one in the redzone. One dropped touchdown pass. Fortunately, it didn’t matter because they still physically dominated a weak Oakland Raiders team up and down the field at MetLife Stadium for a 19-14 win that was not as close as the scored indicated. The Jets outgained the Raiders 402-158, while holding them to an embarrassing 25 rushing yards on 15 attempts. For the fifth time in Rex Ryan’s six years as the head coach, the Jets are 1-0.

Initial Reaction – That’s How You Finish: Jets Win…Rex Returns

Joe Caporoso with reaction to the New York Jets week 17 win and the announcment of Rex Ryan’s return

The New York Jets ended the season with an exclamation point today in Miami, knocking their division rival Dolphins out of the playoffs with an impressive 20-7 victory. Basically immediately after the game, Owner Woody Johnson announced that Rex Ryan will return as the Jets head coach in 2014. We haven’t received word about a contract extension but it is likely the Jets will add a year or two on to his deal. There are also rumblings that the defensive coaching staff could be shook up a little bit, so stay tuned for further information on that front.

Initial Reaction – Today Was A Good Day, Jets Win As Rookies Step Up

Initial reaction to the Jets 24-13 win over the Cleveland Browns

It was a good day at MetLife Stadium. The New York Jets finished up the season 6-2 at home with an encouraging 24-13 victory over the Cleveland Browns. More important than the victory, was the performance of rookie quarterback Geno Smith, rookie cornerback Dee Milliner and rookie guard Brian Winters.

Initial Reaction – Not Enough, Jets Come Apart Late In 30-20 Loss

Reaction to the New York Jets 30-20 loss to the Carolina Panthers

The New York Jets were competitive in Carolina today against a superior team. However, as they have done many times this season, they made one mistake too many to steal a victory. Today, it was a blocked punt that helped break the game open for the Panthers and a late game pick six to seal the deal. At 6-8, the Jets are only playing for pride the next two weeks as Rex Ryan fights to keep his Head Coaching job.  Continue reading “Initial Reaction – Not Enough, Jets Come Apart Late In 30-20 Loss”

Initial Reaction – 37 Points?!? Jets End Losing Streak

Initial reaction to the New York Jets 37-27 win over the Oakland Raiders, which snapped their three game losing streak

While today was a literal win for the New York Jets, 37-27 over the Oakland Raiders, the more important development was the positive performance of rookie quarterback Geno Smith and rookie cornerback Dee Milliner. Keeping in mind they were playing a mediocre team, the Jets had a strong offensive and special teams performance today, with a disappointing outing defensively. A win is a win and it was nice to see them snap their three game losing streak, especially while putting up nearly twice as many points in a single game than they did the past three games combined.

Initial Reaction – …And Another Jets Season Heads Down The Drain

Initial reaction to the New York Jets no show 23-3 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Another season heads down the drain…

Since week 14 of the 2011 regular season, the New York Jets record under Rex Ryan is 11-20. They have lost 14 of their 31 games by 13 points or more. They’ve sprinkled in a few nice wins but generally they average out to not being a competitive team every other week, in a league filled with parity. Today, for the third straight game after their bye week, the Jets were completely blown off the field, as the Miami Dolphins rolled over them 23-3. Ryan isn’t solely at fault for the team’s problems but we have probably reached the point where it is time to move on.

Initial Reaction – Jets Set Game Of Football Back Decades, Lose 19-3

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets depressing 19-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens

The New York Jets effectively set the game of football back 20-30 years today, as they lost to the Baltimore Ravens 19-3. This was an ugly showing from the Jets, particularly on offense where they served an emphatic reminder of their lack of talent on that side of the football.

Initial Reaction: Bad Times Roller Coaster, Bills Crush Jets

Initial reaction to the Jets embarrassing loss to the Bills

The New York Jets continued their bizarre, incredibly frustrating season with a 37-14 whipping at the hands of the Buffalo Bills. This is a team that can still find no measure of consistency and yet because of how weak the AFC is on the back end, remain right in the thick of the playoff race.

Initial Reaction – The Good Time Roller Coaster, Jets Upset Saints

Initial reaction to the Jets impressive upset victory over the New Orleans Saints, 26-20

The 2013 New York Jets roller coaster swung in a positive direction today with their most impressive win of the season, 26-20 over the previously 6-1 New Orleans Saints. Today was a banner day for Rex Ryan who schemed up a terrific defensive game plan that flummoxed Drew Brees all day, along with Marty Mornhinweg who has an offense that is producing despite featuring a collection of mid-season acquisitions at the pass catching positions. You can start thinking about it Jets fans…the playoffs are on the radar for this team.

Initial Reaction – Burn The Tape. Jets Embarrassed by Cincinnati

Initial reaction to the Jets 49-9 loss to the Bengals

The New York Jets continue to be the NFL’s most inconsistent team. One week after an impressive overtime win against the New England Patriots, they were thoroughly humiliated by the Cincinnati Bengals 49-9. The game was every bit as ugly as the score indicates. The Jets were out-coached and out-classed on both sides of the football.
