New York Jets – Picturing A Pragmatic Off-Season Approach

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets taking a pragmatic approach this off-season

Since there are no games this weekend (sorry Pro-Bowl), we are going to pass on our regular 12 Pack and do a quick overview on the Jets off-season approach instead. The 12 Pack will be back next Sunday with Super Bowl predictions and Jets observations.

For the first time since the off-season heading into the 2008 season, the New York Jets are flush with cap space (likely in the excess of 40+ million) and draft picks (8-12). This is both an exciting and encouraging thing for the further development of a young, ascending team who posted a relatively surprising 8-8 record in 2013. However, this type of financial and roster flexibility doesn’t need to lead into foolish overspending and shouldn’t have fans focused on “name” players who aren’t likely or smart targets.

New York Jets – Initial Thoughts On Wide Receiver Position

Joe Caporoso with initial thoughts on free agent wide receivers and the New York Jets likely to be back in 2014

One of the positions the New York Jets desperately need to upgrade at this off-season is wide receiver. There is a tremendously deep class of talented pass catchers in the NFL Draft, which we will get into heavily the next three months here at Turn On The Jets. However, I wanted to quickly review my thoughts on the current Jets receivers who will be back in 2014 and on potential free agent targets for the team. As always, leave your opinions down in the comment section or shoot them over on Twitter.

Turn On The Jets 12 Pack, Wild-Card Weekend Edition

Joe Caporoso with a 12 Pack of Jets observations and NFL Predictions heading into Wild Card Weekend

Last week we wrapped up our New York Jets predictions for the season. Against the spread, we went 10-6 and on wins and losses we came out to 8-8. However, similar to the Jets front office we believe that is an ascending 8-8 and we are headed in the right direction. Here is a collection of predictions for Wild-Card Weekend and a few off-season thoughts on the Jets…

This off-season will provide General Manager John Idzik an opportunity to make his imprint on the New York Jets.

Let’s take an initial inventory of the Jets needs, position by position and examine how they could potentially attack their weaknesses.

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.
