Why The New York Jets Jets Need To Trade for Andre Johnson

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio breaks down why the New York Jets should trade for Andre Johnson

Now that the dust has settled on the NFL Draft and the Jets have begun to sign their rookies, attention has turned to rookie mini-camps and who has a realistic shot at making the 53 man roster. Personally, I was very pleased with the draft haul; Mike O’Connor’s breakdown on Dexter McDougle, Connor Rogers’s breakdown of Calvin Pryor, and the selection of first round talent Jace Amaro in the second have left me feeling downright giddy.

New York Jets vs. New England Patriots – Halftime Report

The New England Patriots have brought a healthy Rob Gronkowski and a banged up defense to Metlife Stadium this week to face the Jets. Fortunately for the Patriots, their rock solid offensive performance is hiding a defense filled with back up players. On the other end, Geno Smith and the Jets have played well enough to hang around besides a brutal pick six in the first quarter. Let’s take a look at the first half highlights.

Jets-Patriots Round Two- Match-Up Central

It seems like it was just yesterday when the Jets let a win against the Patriots in their first match up of the season slip right through their hands…literally.  The drops from Clyde Gates and Stephen Hill won’t leave our minds for quite some time.  Anyway, here we are in Week Seven and round two of Jets-Patriots is shaping up to be a great one.  Let’s quickly run through what match ups are important heading into this one.

New York Jets – Thoughts On Home Field Advantage

Dan Marcus with thoughts on the New York Jets lack of a home field advantage

Alright Jets fans, it’s time to address something that has been bugging me for quite some time and finally came to a head last week. For the longest time, I heard that the Jets lacked a real “home field advantage” because they were playing in someone else’s building with bearing the name “Giants Stadium.” Naturally when the Jets moved across the parking lot to the giant gray slinky now known as Metlife Stadium, one would think that things would presumably be different. In the inaugural season of then “New Meadowlands Stadium,” the Jets brass were playing the “this is our house” mantra up to the “nth” degree and sure the the first Monday night game against the Ravens and the match-up against the Patriots the subsequent week were pretty full and reasonably loud but things have been on a precipitous decline ever since.

New York Jets vs. New England Patriots – Round Two Hooks and Jabs

Connor Rogers takes an early look at the Jets vs Patriots upcoming match up.

I’ve always hated calling match ups “must win games”, but in terms of the division title hopes, the New York Jets are playing a must win game against the New England Patriots Sunday afternoon. New England has been in “hold the fort” mode all season as they wait for the return of superstar tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receiver Danny Amendola (who hasn’t stayed healthy all year). Unfortunately for the Jets and the entire AFC East, the Patriots are 5-1 in “hold the fort” mode. The Jets, standing at 3-3, must beat the Patriots Sunday. Here is how they could pull it off: Continue reading “New York Jets vs. New England Patriots – Round Two Hooks and Jabs”

New York Jets – Can They Break Ugly Patriots Regular Season Trend?

The 2nd match-up of the regular season against the New England Patriots has been a nightmare for the New York Jets under Rex Ryan. Can they break the trend?

Since Rex Ryan has taken over as Head Coach of the New York Jets in 2009, there have been a few ongoing trends with the team. They generally play very good defense that can be shaky at holding leads late. Offensively, they prefer to run the football and have had ongoing inconsistencies. Rex owns Buffalo. Miami owns Rex. New England? Boom or bust. They’ve had their good moments but when it is bad, it has been really…really bad and those nightmare performances have always been in the team’s second regular season meeting.
