New York Jets 2020 Opponents – Las Vegas Raiders

Michael Meegan with a breakdown of the Las Vegas Raiders, the New York Jets week 13 opponent…

The Raiders left Oakland for the bright lights of Las Vegas.  The Raiders got off to a hot start in 2019 but faltered to a 1-5 finish to go 7-9.  With another loaded draft class, the Raiders are looking to break through and look again like the 2016 Raiders which looked like a Super Bowl contender.  The Raiders come back to Metlife for a December showdown Week 13 with the Jets looking to get revenge for the spanking the Jets put on them last year.

New York Jets Special Teams – 2020 Question Marks

Matthew Marciano on the New York Jets special teams heading into 2020…

The New York Jets are getting closer to the start of the 2020 NFL season and all eyes are several key aspects of the team. Questions such as is Sam Darnold really the long-term answer at quarterback for the Jets, can the Jets defense still be as good as they were last season, even without Jamal Adams and lacking depth at the cornerback position? Another key question that remains to be answered is whether or not the Adam Gase was the right hire for the Jets when Mike McCarthy was willing and able to coach the Jets. While all of these questions are important, another question that surrounds the Jets this season is whether or not the Jets will improve or not on Special Teams.

New York Jets – Are They Tanking In 2020?

Stephen Russo on why the New York Jets are not tanking in 2020…

Somehow, over the course of the last few weeks, the tide has shifted in the world of Jets fandom and the panic has started to set in, and that word has been uttered more than a few times in the twitterverse: tanking. In a matter of days, the Jets traded their star safety in Jamal Adams for an absolute haul in return and their $85 million stud middle linebacker opted out due to COVID-19. Not exactly ideal for an arguably talent deficient roster as is. And for some reason, it seemed as though the “Tank Talk” didn’t start until the Jets cut guard Brian Winters (yes, you read that right). Maybe Jets fans placed an incredible amount of stake in the oft-injured guards meaning to the offensive line or maybe it was just the timing of it all, but as soon as the name Trevor Lawrence started creeping into the conversation, I had to throw my hands up in disgust.

Pump. The. Brakes.

New York Jets – 2020 Record Prediction (Training Camp Edition)

Matthew Marciano lays out his 2020 game by game prediction for the New York Jets…

We are close to the start of another NFL season and with the start of new season for the Jets comes predictions of how the Jets will do this year. There are a lot of story lines for the Jets this season that needs to be answered. Among them will be if head coach Adam Gase is the right coach for the job and whether the offense will improve in year two under Gase.

Other questions surrounding the Jets will be how quarterback Sam Darnold, in his third NFL season will perform this year with what appears to be a depleted receivers corps, even after the Jets signed veteran wide out Chris Hogan.

Plus, while the drama with Jamal Adams is no over since the Jets traded the disgruntled safety to the Seattle Seahawks, the question still remains if the defense will continue to improve without Adams in Defensive Coordinator’s Gregg Williams second year with the Jets. It will also prove to be an interesting story line when Adams and Seahawks play host to the Jets later on in the season during week fourteen.

Here are the predictions for the 2020 NY Jets season and how the Jets will fare in each of their match ups against opposing teams.

NFL Draft 2021 – The Preseason Big Board

Greg Armstrong with his preseason New York Jets Big Board…

While there may be a bunch of college players who won’t be playing this season, unfortunately, it’s still never too early to talk NFL Draft (this is a Jets site). I’ll be updating this throughout the season after I’ve watched more film on guys, when I have more time, etc. But for now, lets start out with an initial 10 person big board tailored for the New York Jets.  (more…)

New York Jets – The Wide Receiver Depth Chart

Dylan Price runs through the New York Jets current depth chart at wide receiver

The New York Jets entered last offseason with what some considered their most skilled receiver trio in recent memory. A year later, the group is nearly unrecognizable with lots of boom or bust potential. With no clear cut number one target, the Jets will count on young unproven commodities to step up. The group could be exactly what Sam Darnold needs to take a jump to the next level or the detriment that keeps the team tolling in mediocrity.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Sign WR Chris Hogan

Stephen Zantz with initial reaction to the New York Jets signing WR Chris Hogan

It’s no secret the Jets have a depth problem at the WR position. A few guys are hurt and there is a ton of inexperience in the WR room. Joe Douglas addressed this problem by signing Chris Hogan on Sunday morning. I suggested the Jets should sign Hogan back in July to get another veteran in the room. Let’s take a deep dive as to what exactly the Jets are getting in Hogan.

New York Jets 2020 Opponents – Miami Dolphins

Michael Meegan continues his look at the New York Jets 2020 opponents, with a breakdown of the Miami Dolphins

A team that was accused of tanking in the first half the Miami Dolphins righted the ship and finished the season 5-4. They added numerous big named free agents and had 5 top 60 picks to help fill out a roster that has undergone massive turnover since they hired Brian Flores in 2019.  The Jets and Dolphins have the wonkiest schedule you will ever see when they face each other as they play successive games in Weeks 10 and 12 with each team having their Week 11 Bye in-between.
