The Jets suffered a tough loss to a Pittsburgh Steeler team looking for their first win of the season in week six.

Let’s take a look. Continue reading “New York Jets – Week 6 Linebacker Grade Sheet”

New York Jets Week 5 – Linebacker Grade Sheet

After a stunning week five win in Atlanta, the Jets are beginning to turn heads in the NFL. A big reason for their surprising success has been the superb play from Rex Ryan’s defense. Team’s are struggling to develop any type of ground game against the Jets, which is also limiting their aerial attack (no development of play action). The Jets linebackers were finally tested against not only the run in week five, but also the pass. Let’s see how they did: Continue reading “New York Jets Week 5 – Linebacker Grade Sheet”

Well, it’s Week 4 and things haven’t quite gone as planned so far here with my weekly picks. The visions I had dancing in my head of starting the season on fire and having all our readers begging for my picks haven’t quite materialized… yet! Ok, ok, that’s probably never going to happen, and you may be better off fading me at this point, but I feel it all turning around this week! There’s plenty of room left here on the bandwagon (current occupancy: 1).

And to shake things up this week, I’m not gonna just give my reasons for why each team will cover. Instead, I’m gonna also break things down by giving my fantasy football takes on each game and which players you should be thinking about starting or sitting when Sunday afternoon rolls around.

Mike Donnelly with Week 3 gambling advice on all of the NFL action.

After going 8-8 last week on the heels of Week 1’s mini disaster, things are starting to look up for me as we head into Week 3.

Turn On The Jets Stock Watch – Week 3 Edition

Mike Donnelly with a Turn On The Jets Stock Watch – Buying and Selling New York Jets, heading into Week 3

After a disappointing 3-point loss to the New England Patriots last Thursday, the New York Jets are facing an early season “must win” against the Buffalo Bills this week if they’re going to have any hope of putting together a winning season. This is a winnable game at home against a team very much in the same boat as them, with a rookie quarterback and a solid defense. In fact, it’s nearly the same exact defense since it’s being coached by Rex Ryan’s pupil, Mike Pettine. Let’s jump right in to this week’s Stock Watch and do some buying and selling as we prepare for week 3. Continue reading “Turn On The Jets Stock Watch – Week 3 Edition”

Turn On The Jets Stock Watch: New York Jets Season Preview Edition

Mike Donnely with a Turn On The Jets Stock Watch previewing the 2013 New York Jets Season

The New York Jets 2013 season is still three days from kicking off, but to hear the experts tell it, the season is already over. The Jets are the worst team in the league, there’s no hope, they probably shouldn’t even bother to show up on Sundays. They should just forfeit each game and spare the world three hours of having to watch the worst football team ever assembled.  We’ve heard it all, but I don’t necessarily believe all that fuss. In my opinion, the Jets have actually improved over the 6-10 team they fielded a year ago, and I don’t really understand where all the “LOL, Jets will draft Clowney” stuff comes from. They’ve added a real offensive coordinator, some capable running backs, Santonio Holmes is back, and the defense has the potential to be excellent.
