Rewriting New York Jets History – What if Kenbrell Thompkins Caught It?

Jared Scherl rewrites New York Jets history if Kenbrell Thompkins catches the game winning touchdown against the Buffalo Bills in week 17 of the 2015 season…

On second and short, the Jets were in desperation mode. In Week 17 of the 2015 season, the game and a playoff berth were on the line. The Jets were backed up inside their own 30-yard line with 25 seconds left and needed a touchdown. Ryan Fitzpatrick lined up in the shotgun, and released a pass deep down the right sideline, seemingly into the heart of the Bills’ prevent defense. But as the camera panned left to track the flight of the ball, journeyman wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins emerged, streaking down the sideline uncovered. The ball hit Thompkins in the hands, and just as he attempted to secure the catch, cornerback Mario Butler came slashing across the field to slam his helmet into the ball.

New York Jets Passing Game – Mission Impossible

Joe Caporoso with a look at the impossible situation the New York Jets coaching staff was put in at the quarterback position and where their passing game goes from here…

Todd Bowles formally announced Josh McCown as the New York Jets week 1 starting quarterback yesterday, a decision that was likely from the second he signed his one year, six million dollar contract with the team. With the trio of quarterbacks given to Bowles by General Manager Mike Maccagnan, this summer’s competition was never going to have an overwhelming positive result. McCown is the least worst answer in the short term after an odd, haphazard and ultimately not that surprising preseason from the team’s three quarterbacks.
