Initial reaction to the New York Jets 37-27 win over the Oakland Raiders, which snapped their three game losing streak
While today was a literal win for the New York Jets, 37-27 over the Oakland Raiders, the more important development was the positive performance of rookie quarterback Geno Smith and rookie cornerback Dee Milliner. Keeping in mind they were playing a mediocre team, the Jets had a strong offensive and special teams performance today, with a disappointing outing defensively. A win is a win and it was nice to see them snap their three game losing streak, especially while putting up nearly twice as many points in a single game than they did the past three games combined.

Joe Caporoso on the ongoing collapse of the New York Jets offense
Nobody had high expectations for the New York Jets offense heading into the 2013 season, nor should they have. They had question marks at nearly every position, including most prominently at quarterback where rookie Geno Smith was coming off a porous pre-season. However, they were passably average during the first nine games of the season. However, over the last three weeks they have been the league’s worst offense by any meaningful statistic and from a simple eye test. What happened and are there any solutions for the final four games?

Initial reaction to the New York Jets no show 23-3 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Another season heads down the drain…
Since week 14 of the 2011 regular season, the New York Jets record under Rex Ryan is 11-20. They have lost 14 of their 31 games by 13 points or more. They’ve sprinkled in a few nice wins but generally they average out to not being a competitive team every other week, in a league filled with parity. Today, for the third straight game after their bye week, the Jets were completely blown off the field, as the Miami Dolphins rolled over them 23-3. Ryan isn’t solely at fault for the team’s problems but we have probably reached the point where it is time to move on.

Joe Caporoso breaks down the New York Jets passing game in week 12
The New York Jets passing game was an unmitigated disaster in week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens. After going through the tape, this was a unit wide failure that likely trickles down from Rex Ryan’s input to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and includes unsteady play from the quarterback, offensive line, tight ends, running backs and wide receivers. It is easy to immediately assess the bulk of the blame on Smith at quarterback and while he did not play well this past Sunday and hasn’t played well the past month, the tape tells a much more complex story. Let’s work through Smith’s dropbacks and see what we find:

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets depressing 19-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens
The New York Jets effectively set the game of football back 20-30 years today, as they lost to the Baltimore Ravens 19-3. This was an ugly showing from the Jets, particularly on offense where they served an emphatic reminder of their lack of talent on that side of the football.

Joe Caporoso on why New York Jets fans should temporarily put away the pitchforks and stop the massive amounts of panic
Throughout the off-season, the New York Jets began the process of rebuilding their roster. This was a needed process considering their salary cap and roster situation after the 2012 season. Expectations for this year were tempered or at least should have been tempered. The Jets didn’t have the makings of the league’s worst team but even an optimist should have seen the ceiling for this team as hovering around .500 and playing relevant December games.
