Scott Mason talks to Michael Nania for the “Chronicles of Nania” with a fascinating look at some eye-catching stats involving Jets second-year QB Sam Darnold, Pro Bowl Safety Jamal Adams, and the team’s run defense (its biggest strength!).

Michael goes inside the numbers like only he can to break down:

-The strong performance of Sam Darnold vs the Giants and why QBR is a very useful metric for evaluating QBs

-Jamal Adams’ terrific day vs the Giants and the excellent start to his career

-How the Jets smothered Saquon Barkley and the overall dominance of the team’s run defense 

-The Jets’ recent ability to find quality defensive linemen in mid-late rounds and how that brought about the myth that find good defensive linemen is easy

And much more!

How Did We Get Here? A Look at New York Jets Demise Since 2010

We are a few days removed from the Jets’ monumental win over their 2-7 crosstown rivals, the Giants, and anointing themselves Kings of New York as they improved to an impressive 2-7 record. If you’re picking up my sarcasm, I would quote David Spade from Tommy Boy and say “well I should hope so because I am laying it on pretty thick.” The truth is that if you allowed yourself to escape reality for a little over three hours on Sunday, you probably enjoyed a rather entertaining game in which the Jets came out victorious and their franchise quarterback looked every bit as good as you would hope.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Beat Giants…And?

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 34-27 win against the New York Giants

The New York Jets beat the New York Giants today 34-27 in a back and forth, sloppy football game, moving their record to 2-7 and dropping the Giants record to 2-8. After a fast start from Sam Darnold and the offense, the Jets managed to hold on, thanks mostly to a looting of Daniel Jones by Jamal Adams and a total shut down of the Giants “generational” starting back Saquon Barkley, who had less rushing yards than Trevon Wesco on the day. What does the win mean in the grand scheme of things?

New York Jets – Wait and See…For What?

Dan Essien addresses the myriad of excuses around Adam Gase’s performance this year for the New York Jets…

They’ve been almost the complete opposite under head coach Adam Gase. There have been many excuses for their poor start but those excuses often don’t paint the whole picture. Let’s discuss why there may not be much of reason to use the “wait and see” approach this time.
