New York Jets – What About The Middle Class?

Joe Caporoso on the questions around the middle class of the New York Jets roster

The New York Jets have struggled in recent NFL Drafts, to put it politely. We don’t need to rehash the abnormally high volume of players selected from 2015-2018 who are no longer here (we can save that until after the final 53 is confirmed) but it creates a burden for the roster to overcome as they deal with the normal perils of NFL training camp. Injuries (Avery Williamson) happen. Suspensions (Chris Herndon) happen. When they do, it is critical for the “middle class” of your roster to rise to the occasion to properly support the top talent. 

This Jets roster is more “top heavy” than it has been since 2015. Jamal Adams, CJ Mosley and Le’Veon Bell are legitimate All-Pro candidates. Sam Darnold is expected to take a major leap in year two. Quinnen Williams was the third pick in the NFL Draft. Kelechi Osemele has been an All-Pro when healthy and former top six pick Leonard Williams is entering the season with high expectations in a contract year. Yet, it may be the lesser known names who make or break the Jets ending their eight year playoff drought…

Joe Caporoso with three things to watch for in the New York Jets second preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons…

The New York Jets second preseason game (and first road game) is tomorrow night against the Atlanta Falcons. Their opener had an entertaining first drive, a brutally long rain delay and then a bunch of sloppy football from the backups…par for the course in the preseason. The starters should see a little more extended action against Atlanta. Here is what else you should be watching out for…

New York Jets Preseason Opener – Three Things To “Watch”

Joe Caporoso with the three primary things to watch for in the New York Jets preseason opener against the New York Giants…

The New York Jets start out the preseason against the New York Giants tonight. Since the last time they took the field in a sluggish blowout loss to the New England Patriots where they looked the part of a glorified Division 1-AA team, they have a new Head Coach, Offensive Coordinator, Defensive Coordinator, General Manager, starting running back, slot receiver, center, offensive guard, inside linebacker and defensive tackle among a few other notable additions.

Preseason football is football but the impact of these games, particularly the first and fourth ones are generally limited. However, here are three things to watch for because like me, you are a crazy individual who is going to spend your entire Thursday night watching this game like it is wild card weekend as the Jets start to get the kinks out before the regular season. They are currently regularly projected to finish second behind the heavily favored New England Patriots in the AFC East, although these sports betting sites could see some changes to the odds as August pushes on.
