New York Jets – 2017 Deep Sleepers

Joe Caporoso on a handful of potential deep sleepers on the New York Jets 2017 roster

New York Jets – Return Of The Tight End & Fullback?

Joe Caporoso on the state of the New York Jets tight end and fullback position

The New York Jets offense has not prominently featured the traditional tight end or fullback position in recent years. In 2013 and 2014, they dealt with the incompetence of Jeff Cumberland and Jace Amaro. In 2015, they creatively utilized Quincy Enunwa as a hybrid H-Back to supplement the position. In 2016, when Enunwa shifted out to receiver, the positions fell into complete irrelevance.  Will the hiring of John Morton at Offensive Coordinator change the prioritization of tight end or fullback and do the Jets have the resources to utilize the position?

New York Jets – Separating Record From Talent

Joe Caporoso on why record does not always reflect talent level

The New York Jets are widely predicted to be one of the worst teams in the NFL in 2017. Despite optimism on the potential of many players drafted in 2015 and 2016, they are unproven at a high number of positions. It is fair to argue they have the least talented roster in the NFL. Yet, talent doesn’t always match record output.

New York Jets – The Optics Of Rebuilding

Joe Caporoso explores why New York Jets fans have more patience for a rebuild than they did a few years ago…

New York Jets fans have embraced low expectations for the 2017 season. There is more comfort than usual with the word “rebuilding” and already consistent chatter about positioning in the 2018 NFL Draft. This is year three of the Mike Maccagnan/Todd Bowles regime. Their current record is 15-17 with zero playoff appearances. It is fair to anticipate that record will remain under .500 and with zero playoff appearances after this season, yet the pitchforks are not out for Maccagnan, like they were for John Idzik by October of his second season. What has changed in these few shorts years and what does it have to do with personality, optics and football?
