Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets season ending 37-24 win over the Miami Dolphins
New York Jets fans have seen this movie before. An exciting week 17 over the Miami Dolphins, propelled by standout performances by their young players and an emotional effort for their Head Coach. They left the field with a 37-24 win and a Gatorade bath, similar to their raucous locker room celebration last season. Unfortunately, last year’s win brought them to 8-8 and outside of the playoffs. This year’s win brought them to 4-12…and outside of the playoffs.

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets 17-16 loss to the New England Patriots
The New York Jets competed today, as many expected but ultimately fell short against the New England Patriots 17-16. It was another frustrating loss in a season that is mercifully one week from ending. As we have seen time and time again, no matter how good your defense decides to be against certain opponents, you can’t win if your offense and special teams is porous.

Joe Caporoso on the likely Rex Jets vs. Patriots finale
This Sunday is likely Rex Ryan’s last home game as the New York Jets Head Coach. Since their Divisional Round upset, the Jets are 1-6 against New England but the last four games have been decided by 3 points or less.
Maybe this is foolish because the Jets are not a good football team and New England is the best team in the league but I think the Jets will be competitive on Sunday and wouldn’t be stunned if they won.

Joe Caporoso on the offseason house cleaning that awaits the New York Jets
We are scrapping predictions for the New York Jets/Tennessee Titans game.

Joe Caporoso looks at the New York Jets effectively using Eric Decker and Percy Harvin
The New York Jets are rarely competent in the passing game. However, there were signs of a functional NFL offense against the Minnesota Vikings this past Sunday. Let’s look at two plays that worked, one to Percy Harvin and one to Eric Decker, likely the team’s two starting receivers in 2015.
