NY Jets Need to Hire Doug Pederson as Next Head Coach

Matt Marciano argues that the Jets should hire Doug Pederson.

Okay Jets fans…. buckle up as what I am about to say may not be a popular position. The Jets should hire the former Eagles coach, who was fired by the team last night to be their next head coach. Pederson would bring successful head coaching experience, a Super Bowl ring as a head coach and the leadership that is needed to rebuild the NY Jets.

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.

Matt Marciano laments the Jets losing the Trevor Lawrence sweepstakes and provides his opinion on how the number two overall pick should be used.

The New York Jets won their second game of the season, defeating a playoff team in the Cleveland Browns by a score of 23-16. In the process, the Jacksonville Jaguars lost once again, to the Chicago Bears. The Jags losing, combined with the Jets winning, has given the Jags the coveted first overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and the right to pick a possible franchise altering quarterback in Trevor Lawrence.

A Plea to Jets Fans: Don’t Hit the Panic Button

Stephen Russo on why Jets fans have reason for optimism.

There is no doubt the Jets delivered a gut punch to every fan this past Sunday in Los Angeles. Somehow, some way, Adam Gase managed a win against Sean McVay on the back of 76-year-old Frank Gore and his 24 touches (and his 2.7 yards per rush). The entire Jets fanbase took a collective hit to the groin like we did when Keith Byers fumbled in Denver, or when Drew Coleman let Peyton Manning’s pass go over his fingertips to Pierre Garcon, or when Big Ben hit Antonio Brown on 3rd down to seal the deal, or when Ryan Fitzpatrick almost connected with Kenbrell Thompkins in the 4th quarter in Buffalo, or… did I make my point clear enough?
