New York Jets – The Ideal Coaching Staff

James Kuntz lays out the ideal New York Jets coaching staff…

This Saturday, I took on a fun thought exercise: what would an ideal Jets coaching staff would look like?

I ask readers to keep a few things in mind. It is plausible that a new coach might keep one or two high-achieving coaches (G. Williams, B. Boyer, Shawn Jefferson, etc) but is far more likely to gut the operation and start from scratch.

Training Camp technically began (Players have reported for COVID-19 testing) over the past few days. It’s always a fun game to evaluate the hot seat of key figures within the Jets organization. I have used a scale of 1-10 to make these evaluations. Let’s dive in.

New York Jets – Assessing the Culture

Dylan Price dives into the current culture of the New York Jets

Last week prior to his trade, Jamal Adams granted the Daily News and exclusive in which he didn’t mince words on the state of the Jets franchise. From shots at the ownership, general manager and even coach, Adams let it all fly. All though Adams may be gone, the Jets floundering culture is a much more deeply rooted issue.

New York Jets – Should the Jets Sign Jadeveon Clowney?

James Kuntz and Dan Essien go over the pros and cons of signing Jadeveon Clowney…

Rumors of the New York Jets’ interest in free agent OLB Jadeveon Clowney were reignited yesterday when new Jets safety Bradley McDougald posted a screenshot of a facetime with Clowney entitled, “Spoke to my boy @clownejd today, told me to the tell the @nyjets to come get him!! Let’s make it happen 🙏🏾”

As a result, it’s worth examining whether the Jets should sign Clowney. In this article, Dan Essien argues for signing Clowney, while James Kuntz argues the contrary.

New York Jets – What To Expect From Sam Darnold in Year 3?

Stephen Russo with a deep dive on what to expect from Sam Darnold in year three…

While the Jamal Adams saga finally came to a close this weekend, Jets fans can put the drama behind them and look forward to the 2020 season filled with – you guessed it – so many question marks. The post-Adams-trade Jets are a team that is definitely building for the long haul.  And rightfully so, questions arise on the team’s intention of competing in 2020. The loss of Adams certainly doesn’t improve the defense, but does the addition of McDougald mitigate the loss enough to where it won’t be felt as much? Does the addition of McGovern and Becton on the offensive line make a big enough difference for Sam Darnold and return Le’Veon Bell to his Steeler form? While how much the Jets upgraded is debatable, the moves that were made also make every fan ask the question “Does different necessarily mean better?”

I am here to tell you – the answer doesn’t matter that much.

This season’s success or failure is based on one thing, and one thing only:  Sam Darnold.
