The Darnold Decision

The season from hell has come to an end and the man responsible, Adam Gase, was finally relieved of his duties no more than 20 minutes after his return from New England. The most pressing thing that this franchise had to accomplish is done, and they have rid themselves of the biggest problem since Rich Kotite. Now the Jets embark on what is really the “most important offseason” in franchise history… as if we haven’t heard that one before.

Dream Offseason, Version 2: The Deshaun Watson Version

Dalbin Osorio offers his dream offseason for the New York Jets, version 2.0.

Thanks to a dominant performance by the *checks notes* Cleveland Browns, the New York Jets are now assured of picking 2nd AND 23rd in the first round in the NFL Draft. They enter the offseason with a cache of picks over the next two years and they stand to add some more once they trade QB Sam Darnold. As Joe Douglas enters his second offseason, and begins to narrow his head coaching search down, the time has come for the Jets General Manager to find his franchise QB and Head Coach and end what is now the most absurd playoff drought in the NFL.

Justin’s Field Day – Lessons From Fields’ Elite Sugar Bowl Performance

Travis Anselmo recaps Justin Fields’ elite Sugar Bowl performance.

Trevor Lawrence, for about two full collegiate seasons, has been crowned the unquestioned first overall pick of this year’s upcoming draft. Right behind him, was Ohio State QB Justin Fields, but after two subpar games against Indiana and Northwestern, draft analysts started to overthink Fields and his entire body of work over two seasons at Ohio State. Some went as far as to rank BYU QB Zach Wilson ahead of him on their big boards, and even projected Wilson to be selected before Fields in their mock drafts. Well, I think it’s fair to say that Justin Fields heard everything the doubters had to say about him heading into the College Football Playoff Semifinals. In what was the most significant game of his Ohio State career, Fields had the biggest game of his career. He took on Clemson and fellow QB Trevor Lawrence and absolutely stole the show, posting a stat-line of 22-28 for 385 yards and six touchdowns. However, what we needed to see from Justin Fields went well beyond a stat sheet.

New York Jets Dream Offseason -Wink Martindale Edition

Dalbin Osorio lays out his dream offseason for the New York Jets in 2021, if they hire Wink Martindale as HC

The New York Jets FINALLY ended the Adam Gase era 20 minutes after they returned to New Jersey following a loss to the New England Patriots in Foxborough. General Manager Joe Douglas now enters his first (and what will, hopefully, be his last) coaching search as he tries to end the longest playoff drought in the NFL.

The Jets have already requested interviews with Colts Defensive Coordinator Matt Eberflus (fresh off coaching a Colts defense that finished top 10 in points allowed and yards allowed) and Chiefs Offensive Coordinator Eric Bieniemy (fresh off coaching a Chiefs offense that finished first in yards and sixth in points scored). They have recently requested to interview Bills Offensive Coordinator Brian Daboll. They are also expected to request permission to interview Titans Offensive Coordinator Arthur Smith in what promises to be an extensive and lengthy search. In this breakdown, I give you version one of my dream offseason (this will be my preferred offseason, unless Matt Campbell really does interview for the job). I will give you free agency signings, draft picks, trades, and all that jazz (using Fanspeak’s excellent simulator). Let’s turn on the jets…

This mock draft is based on the premise of the Jets officially locking the second pick in the draft. They now have a plethora of options, but rather than unpatch every scenario, here is a route the Jets could go with the lone caveat being they had to trade down at #2.
