Initial Reaction – Darnold Thrives, Tank Rolls, Jets Lose Again

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to

Prior to the New York Jets and Green Bay Packers game, most sensible fans would have asked for a great Sam Darnold game in a shootout loss to the Green Bay Packers. Well, Merry Christmas! Darnold played the game of his career for the second week in a row and the Jets blew a 14 point lead in a 44-38 overtime loss. The Jets dropped to 4-11, the third straight year of losing at least 11 games with Mike Maccagnan and Todd Bowles leading the way and are still in contention for the first overall pick in the NFL Draft. For historical context, Maccagnan and Bowles have the lowest winning percentage of any GM/HC combo in franchise history who have been employed for more than two years.

New York Jets – A Strategy For Building The Offense

Joe Caporoso with a proposal for building the New York Jets offense around Sam Darnold

There is no doubt the New York Jets need a massive offseason focus on improving their offense. This is a job of course correction and overcompensating for years (decades, really) of negligence to one side of the football. The Jets are in a unique situation for four reasons: they have neglected offense at a staggering rate in recent years, they have an excessive amount of cap space paired with a lack of homegrown talent they need to pay, they have a promising quarterback entering year two of his rookie deal and they have not made the playoffs in eight years, dragging league wide perception of the organization to one of its lowest points.

This unique set of circumstances means the Jets need to think unconventionally when it comes to team building and bringing themselves back to respectability in the NFL.  Below is a prospective strategy for rebuilding their offense to make it a competitive unit during Darnold’s rookie contract and give him the necessary infrastructure to aid in his development, which if handled properly, will benefit the Jets for 10-15 years.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Win In Their Loss To Houston Texans

Joe Caporoso with thoughts on the New York Jets 29-22 loss to the Houston Texans

The New York Jets lost to the Houston Texans 29-22 last night in a highly competitive back and forth game to drop their record to 4-10. Last night’s game highlighted a few things that have been obvious all season but more importantly was a major step forward for rookie quarterback Sam Darnold. Candidly, everything that happened last night that didn’t involve Darnold is just footnotes for this team right now.
