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.
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.
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.
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.
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

EVERYBODY PANIC! Darnold is a bust. Todd Bowles must go. Jeremy Bates is a younger Brian Schottenheimer. Leonard Williams is overrated. Robby Anderson must be traded. If only Josh McCown or Teddy Bridgewater were under center, the Jets would be a glorious 3-0 rolling towards a AFC East title! The New York Jets fanbase is currently in a fit of hysteria following a Thursday night loss to the Baker Browns. What is one to do from here outside of folding up the franchise or moving them to London to take Wembley Stadium over under Woody Johnson’s watchful eye?
Joe Caporoso with a week 15 loss vent on the New York Jets 31-19 defeat to the New Orleans Saints and quarterback purgatory…
The New York Jets suffered their seventh loss in nine games against the New Orleans Saints. It is hard to be distraught about it considering the team’s current situation. They are clearly overmatched to compete in games like this and they hung tough for most of the afternoon, after embarrassing themselves the week before against Denver. The rookie safeties played well, some guy named Xavier Cooper looked like twice the player of Muhammad Wilkerson, rookies Chad Hansen and Elijah McGuire made plays and the offensive line held up well. Yet ultimately the game served as a crippling reminder of how much the Jets have failed at the game’s most important position, quarterback, in recent years.
Joe Caporoso with a loss vent on the New York Jets 23-0 no show in Denver…
The New York Jets played their worst game of the season yesterday, losing in an embarrassing shut out to a team who was last in DVOA and had lost eight in row prior to their matchup. It looked like the Jets skipped the week of practice, forgot to game plan and then decided midway through the third quarter they were accepting their loss and wanted the game over as quick possible. It was like if you took Muhammad Wilkerson and multiplied him into an entire organization. Lazy, disinterested and miserable to watch. With their upcoming schedule, the Jets look well on their way to 5-11.
Joe Caporoso with a loss vent on the New York Jets 35-27 defeat to the Carolina Panthers
The New York Jets have lost football games in a repeating and familiar way this season. They enter a game as underdogs, they gain an early lead, they head into the fourth quarter, either winning or narrowly behind but then ultimately lose in gut wrenching fashion. This season they are 2-5 in one possession games and outside of Jacksonville are yet to score what could really be classified as an “upset” in hindsight. Where does this leave them with five games left at 4-7?
