Initial Reaction – Today Was A Good Day, Jets Win As Rookies Step Up

Initial reaction to the Jets 24-13 win over the Cleveland Browns

It was a good day at MetLife Stadium. The New York Jets finished up the season 6-2 at home with an encouraging 24-13 victory over the Cleveland Browns. More important than the victory, was the performance of rookie quarterback Geno Smith, rookie cornerback Dee Milliner and rookie guard Brian Winters.

Turn On The Jets 12 Pack, Week 16 Edition

Joe Caporoso with 12 predictions for Jets vs. Browns

The New York Jets host the Cleveland Browns in the their final home game of the 2013 regular season. MetLife Stadium has been kind to the team this year, as they currently hold a 5-2 record at home, including upset victories over the New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints. While the game is “meaningless” since it involves two teams out of playoff contention, let’s hope the Jets can do something they haven’t done the past two seasons, finish strong.

The Future Is Bright But Should Rex Ryan Be Part Of It?

Dan Marcus and Joe Caporoso discuss Rex Ryan’s future with the New York Jets

The below article was originally submitted by Dan Marcus and inspired editor Joe Caporoso to leave a response at the bottom in italics. Later in the week, our Cole Patterson and Dalbin Osorio will debate the Rex Ryan question as well, which promises to be a dominant one over the next month or so.

There was a point yesterday when I thought the Jets would actually pull it out right after “Riverboat Ron” essentially spat in the face of the offense and the defense for that matter and the momentum was shifting in a big way, culminated by a Sheldon “Fridge”-ardson Touchdown. However, in the grand fashion of the Jets, they proceeded to throw up all over themselves and turned a three-point game into a 17-point deficit before you could even blink. In a way, it was an all-too-fitting end to a season that many thought to be doomed before it ever started but somehow, despite a fundamental lack of talent, they put themselves in a position to contend for the final playoff spot in the AFC.

Collision Low Crossers Review – A Must Read For Jets Fans

Joe Caporoso reviews “Collision Low Crossers” by Nicholas Dawidoff. A must read for any Jets fan

I just finished up Collision Low Crossers by Nicholas Dawidoff, which I highly recommend for any New York Jets fan. Dawidoff spent the entire 2011 season with the team, predominantly with the defensive coaching staff. This book provides unparalleled access and a unique perspective since the author is not a sportswriter and came in with limited knowledge of football. Here are a few observations but again, go read it yourself…

Initial Reaction – 37 Points?!? Jets End Losing Streak

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.

New York Jets – The Collapse of An Offense

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?
