New York Jets Loss Vent, Week 5 – The Lost Quarter

Joe Caporoso with a New York Jets loss vent on the lost quarter of the 2019 season and where the organization goes from here…

The first quarter of the New York Jets 2019 season is in the books. Four losses. Five touchdowns (two from the offense). Outscored by opponents 101-39. One game from Sam Darnold. Two quarters from CJ Mosley. Five quarters from Quinnen Williams. Quincy Enunwa out for the year. Brandon Shell benched. Trumaine Johnson benched…then un-benched. Zero Leonard Williams sacks. Zero Robby Anderson touchdowns. Ty Montgomery collecting mothballs. Many, many first down A gap handoffs. A spleen that we are all waiting on to shrink. Where do we go from here?

New York Jets Loss Vent – The Hall Pass Season

Joe Caporoso with a loss vent on the New York Jets impending hall pass season

The New York Jets head into their bye week at 0-3, with three conference and two divisional losses under their belt. In a vacuum, their record is somewhat understandable considering their quarterback situation and the absence of CJ Mosley but 0-3 does not tell the whole story of their nightmarish start. The Jets have excuses to be bad this year but handing out a blank hall pass to the organization because of a handful of injuries is not the answer to turning around arguably the worst stretch in franchise history (14-37 in their past 51 games, 51-80 since 2010 and heading towards nine straight years of no playoffs).

Initial Reaction/Loss Vent – Jets Drift Into Abyss With 0-2 Start

Joe Caporoso with an initial reaction/loss vent to the New York Jets week 2 defeat to the Cleveland Browns

Was there any moment in the game tonight you thought the New York Jets had a chance to win? Despite a sloppy, inconsistent effort from the Cleveland Browns, there was never any doubt who was in control of this game from the opening minute. It sputtered along to a 23-3 loss for the New York Jets, who have now lost one fourth of their 2019 home games by mid September and have lost seven straight at home dating back to last year. With upcoming games against New England, Philadelphia, Dallas and then New England again, it does not seem like things are headed to a place of getting better anytime soon.

New York Jets Loss Vent – The Foundation Still Needs To Be Built

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets still needing to build a foundation from scratch for their roster long term

A common narrative around the New York Jets is that they have built a strong nucleus, foundation or collection of cornerstones in the previous four years. Once a stronger supporting cast is added around them and the coaching is improved, everything will succinctly click into a masterful demonstration of Mike Maccagnan’s 5-7 year plan in a league where teams regularly turn things around in 1-3 years. Whatever comforting sounding adjective you use to excuse the team’s 23-36 record over the previous four years, it is an exaggeration. The Jets still need to build a foundation. The Jets still need to build a nucleus. The Jets still need cornerstones at premium positions. There is no a foundation currently in place.

New York Jets Regime Change – Who Is Up Next?

Joe Caporoso reviews potential GM and HC candidates for the New York Jets in 2019 and also discusses Interim HC options for the rest of this season

The New York Jets are likely to fire Todd Bowles immediately after the season. As it stands today, it the Jets are unlikely to fire Mike Maccagnan (they should) but who knows where things will stand after the upcoming six games. Here is a run down of prospective replacements for both and a few thoughts on potentially putting an Interim Head Coach in for the remaining games in 2018 and why it isn’t likely to happen.

New York Jets Rebuild Vent – How To Handle Rest Of 2018 Season

Joe Caporoso with thoughts on how the New York Jets should handle the rest of the 2018 regular season

The New York Jets have now lost three games in a row to drop their record to 3-6. Instead of pouring over Sunday’s slop-fest again, which I did right here, let’s take a step back to review what the team should do the rest of the season…now that their season is over again in early November, a tradition like no other! This is not a comprehensive organizational overhaul discussion, which we’ll save for the bye week, rather this is what the team should do over their final seven games in an attempt to squeeze some value out of them.

New York Jets Midseason Deep Dive – The Eternal Rebuild

Joe Caporoso with a midseason deep dive on the New York Jets eternal rebuild

The New York Jets have hit the halfway mark of the regular season at a familiar 3-5 record. It was their record each of the previous two years through eight games and right in the ballpark of their record through eight games every season since 2010 (the last time they made the playoffs). Instead of doing a loss vent on the Jets 24-10 coma inducing defeat to the Chicago Bears, let’s take a bigger step back to discuss the Jets eternally ongoing rebuild, most recently stewarded by Mike Maccagnan and Todd Bowles.

New York Jets Loss Vent – Week 7 vs. Minnesota Edition

Joe Caporoso with a week 7 loss vent on the New York Jets 37-17 defeat to the Minnesota Vikings…

“It’s not like they came in here and just smacked us,” Lee said of the Vikings. “It’s nothing to sit here and hit the panic button about. We’re fine. No one is worried or panicking here. We’re fine as a group. We’re a lot more close-knit [than last year].

“I know in a couple years past, since I’ve been here, the wheels have fallen off and all hell would break loose. But we’re fine, and no one is panicking here. We weren’t as close-knit as a group as we are now. Nobody has got their head hanging down.”  – New York Jets ILB Darron Lee after yesterday’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings
