New York Jets 2019 Training Camp Preview – The Beginning Of The End?

Joe Caporoso takes a deep dive on the state of the New York Jets organization heading into 2019 training camp

The New York Jets take the field later this week for their 2019 training camp in Florham Park, New Jersey. This has been a dark “era” of Jets football as the post Random Rex AFC Championship Game years have faded into the second longest playoff drought in franchise history and the third longest playoff drought currently in the NFL. 

After being the only team in the NFL to not meet or exceed six wins once in the past three years, the Jets finally took a sledgehammer to the stagnant, ineffective Mike Maccagnan/Todd Bowles regime by canning both of them, hiring Adam Gase as the Head Coach and rebuilding the front office around recently hired GM Joe Douglas. Their roster had a splashy makeover in some areas with the headline additions of Le’Veon Bell, CJ Mosley, Kelechi Osemele and Jamison Crowder while was surprisingly stagnant in other areas like center, cornerback and edge rusher. 

Is 2019 the beginning of the end of this generally miserable era of football or was too much damage done in the past 4 (6? 8?) years to expect a corner to truly be turned this season? Here is what to watch for this August while we all try to figure out the answer…

TOJ Pick Six: Questions for New York Jets Entering Preseason

Dalbin Osorio with TOJ Pick Six of questions facing the New York Jets heading into August…

You smell that, Jets fans? That is most definitely the smell of optimism and football returning, as we have reached the two-weeks-away-from-the-Green-&-White-Scrimmage portion of the off-season. We have a new coach that’s been here for about six months, and a new general manager that’s only been here for what feels like six days. It’s year two of Sam Darnold, with an influx of talent on both sides of the ball, and a puncher’s chance of ending a too-long playoff drought. There’s still a few questions this team needs answered so, like a Pat Mahomes errant cross body throw that lands in the arms of Jamal Adams in January to seal a playoff win, let’s take this pick six to the house.

New York Jets Top Five – Bold 2019 Predictions

Joe Belic with five bold predictions for the 2019 New York Jets

From a “crazy-eyed” press conference to a “rift” in the front office, it’s been a bit of roller-coaster ride this offseason; however, things have settled down and the Jets are once again on course. Adam Gase and new GM Joe Douglas are gelling and Sam Darnold is on the rise. Nevertheless, many remain theorizing how the year will play out.  In this week’s “Joe Jet 5,” I make five bold predictions about the upcoming season.

New York Jets – A Season of Risk

Jim Geraghty on the challenges and risk facing Joe Douglas and the New York Jets heading into 2019…

The stakes for the Jets are higher than usual in 2019. After last year’s deeply disappointing  season, management – primarily the now-departed general manager Mike Maccagnan – made a series of high-risk, high-reward gambles in free agency and the draft before being dismissed in May – to the surprise of Maccagnan, the fanbase, and the rest of the league. New GM Joe Douglas is now in the odd position of managing a team that was almost entirely assembled by someone else, with limited opportunity to shape the roster until the 2020 free agency period and draft.
