TOJ – New York Jets Running Back Grade Sheet (2013 Season)

Hello New York Jets fans! After a somewhat surprising 8-8 season for Gang Green, the attention now shifts to the offseason. Armed with an expected 10-12 picks and $35+ million in cap space, the Jets figure to be active both in free agency and in the draft. With that said, It’s time to hand out the grades for 2014 for the New York Jets Running Backs. I’ll include Mike Goodson in the grades and will be subtracting Geno Smith’s rushing totals. I will also include a link to TOJ’s “Who Stays, Who Goes” so you can see what changes may be made to the Jets running backs core for 2014. It is a group that may remain unchanged for the most part, but you should familiarize yourself with some names in case John Idzik elects to upgrade the group. Let’s get to it.

Morning Cup of Coffee: Black Monday Edition

Connor Rogers breaks down this weeks New York Jets story lines on Black Monday

The New York Jets finished off a surprising season with a win at Miami, eliminating the Dolphins from playing post season football. With that win, the Jets finish with an 8-8 record and second place in the AFC East. The Jets were supposed to win a maximum of four games and Rex Ryan was supposed to be canned, but that’s why they play the games, right? It can be tough to be happy with a season that ends without a playoff appearance, but the Jets surprised a ton of people this year. Most importantly, they have built positive momentum for next year. Lets take a look at this week’s story lines. Continue reading “Morning Cup of Coffee: Black Monday Edition”

TOJ Week 17 NFL Gambling Advice and Picks

This is a sad day as the NFL regular season comes to a close. No more fantasy football, no more tons of games to bet on every week, and for most fans, no more watching your favorite team play for the next nine months. But that doesn’t mean we can’t end this season with a bang and make some money right? Let’s get to it… Continue reading “TOJ Week 17 NFL Gambling Advice and Picks”

A Day At MetLife – Jets vs. Browns

In what was regarded by many as a “meaningless” game, the New York Jets beat the Cleveland Browns with an impressive effort on Sunday. Many teams often crumble once they are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, but the Jets fought like a team with new life. Rookie quarterback Geno Smith was efficient with three touchdowns and no turnovers. The defense held tough on their own end of the field multiple times. Overall, it was an exciting game to watch, especially from the south end zone. I was fortunate enough to attend the game with my father, a life long Jets fan since the Shea Stadium days.  Continue reading “A Day At MetLife – Jets vs. Browns”

TOJ Week 16 NFL Gambling Advice and Picks

Last week was a step back in my quest to get over .500 for the season and my Best Bets bombed to drop me below .500 on the season in that category as well. Hell, I even lost my teaser pick, which I’ve been pretty good at this season. It’s my own fault though really… I mean, what the HELL was I thinking being so high on the Giants?! Ugh. Oh well, it’s time to move on and take a look at Week 16, which has a few games I absolutely love. A big week is coming, I can feel it. Let’s get on with the show… Continue reading “TOJ Week 16 NFL Gambling Advice and Picks”

Breaking Down The Play: Geno and The Dream

The New York Jets offense performed better than expected against a stout Panthers defense on Sunday, but could not hit the big play to stay in the game. Last week, I broke down a play where Santonio Holmes dropped a sure touchdown pass from Geno Smith. To keep things in perspective, I’ll break down a play where Geno Smith let down his wide receiver. Saalim Hakim, the recent addition to the 53 man roster, flashed top notch speed on his five snaps he played. In the following play, Saalim shows why the Jets took a flier on him. While not the most polished football player (he did not start playing until his Senior year of high school), the raw skills appear to be present. Let’s break down the play. Continue reading “Breaking Down The Play: Geno and The Dream”

New York Jets Defensive Line Grade Sheet: Week 15

Frank Giasone breaks down the tape on the Jets defensive line in week 16

After Sunday’s loss to Carolina, it’s starting to look like nagging injuries and fatigue in the front seven have begun taking their toll on the Jets’ defense. Pairing an anemic offense with a defense that struggles to force turnovers can have that effect, as we’ve seen this defense spend far too much time on the field through 15 weeks.

Connor Rogers takes a look at the New York Jets story lines for week 16.

The Jets playoff hopes have come to an end, but there is still football to be played. The Cleveland Browns come into MetLife Stadium this weekend in what is expected to be a warm and rainy day. The Jets are a young team with a lot of big question marks heading into the offseason. Will the team lay down these next two weeks or fight for Rex Ryan’s job? Let’s take a look at this week’s story lines. Continue reading “New York Jets – Morning Cup of Coffee”
