Turn On The Jets Stock Watch – Jets/Patriots Gameday Edition

Mike Donnelly with a Turn On The Jets Stock Watch previewing Jets vs. Patriots tonight

Just like the New York Jets as a team only had a brief time to reflect on the Tampa Bay game before moving on to Patriots Week, we here at TOJ were in the same boat. The week 1 victory was awesome, and allowed Jets fans to rub it in the faces of all the “experts” who predicted 42-0 losses and 0-16 seasons, but now it is time to look ahead to bigger and better things. The Patriots are perhaps more vulnerable than we’ve seen them in the past decade with a ton of injuries, and they could be ripe for an upset. Today I’ll be buying and selling what we saw in the first game of the season and what we can expect tonight against Tom Brady and co.

Turn On The Jets 12 Pack, Week 2 – Jets vs. Pats

The Turn On The Jets 12 Pack with predictions for Jets vs. Patriots

The results of week 1 in the NFL frequently lead to harsh overreactions of both the positive and negative manner. You never want to invest too much into a single game. The Philadelphia Eagles may not score 2,000 points this season, for example. David Wilson will probably fumble less than 30 times in 2013…probably. The defending Super Bowl Champs aren’t heading to a 2-14 year where they allow 50 points on a weekly basis. As for our New York Jets, there is reason for tempered optimism.

New York Jets Therapy Session – “Offensive” Line

Cole Patterson with a New York Jets Therapy Session on the team’s “Offensive” Line

Cole Patterson continues his New York Jets Therapy Session series. Make sure to check for these every Thursday and to give him a follow on Twitter

Diagnosis: Out of sorts is not the right word. All in all the offensive line held up well in pass protection, with only a few major gaffes. They were not porous per-say, but neither were the stout unit we expected. They seemed to get no push at all and offered no help for the beleaguered running backs. Compared to our hopes and expectations, it was an all together “offensive” performance from the men in the trenches.

The Big Man Report – State of the Offensive Line – Week 1

Mike Nolan grading and discussing the New York Jets’ offensive line. Here is his Week 1 look at the their performance and preview for week 2

Due to the short week, I was only able to get through grading most of the first half from Sunday’s game against the Bucs. Since we are pretty much in full Patriots mode, here is an abbreviated version of my weekly offensive line column that I will run through the 2013 season. Check back next week for the first full version after the Patriots game.  Keep in mind that these are all 1st half grades. Click here to see how I come up with the grades.

New York Jets Philosophical Differences: Coverage to Pressure

Cole Patterson on the changes to Rex Ryan’s defense during his time with the New York Jets

Football pundits constantly harp on the faddish new formations and mind blowing innovations that NFL coaches and coordinators concoct year in and year out. Even a casual observer of the NFL can witness dramatic shifts in scheme and play on a league wide scale. In 1985 Buddy Ryan’s 46 defense stopped runners in their tracks. In 2001 everyone was captivated by the Tampa 2 defense. In 2008 the Wildcat formation reared its ugly head. More recently, the pistol and read option have become pervasive. Even just this past Monday, the Eagles displayed the high octane offense that is Chip Kelly’s brain child.

On a smaller scale, individual teams go through schematic and philosophical shifts regularly as they adjust to new tendencies that are league wide or perhaps just a tool of a particular rival. Such is the case with the New York Jets defense in the Rex Ryan era.

New York Jets – Know Your Opponent (Week 2 – New England)

Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio overviews the New York Jets Week 2 opponent, the New England Patriots

It is always a different feeling when we reach a week where the New York Jets and New England Patriots square off. This week will be further different because the days when Rex would “tug on Superman’s cape”, as well as the days when New England seems unbeatable are gone. Yes, the “Patriot Way” took some hits this offseason, with the arrest of Aaron Hernandez and the loss of Wes Welker. However, we at TOJ still picked the Pats to win the AFC East, namely because of one Thomas Edward Patrick Brady, Junior. Let’s get to know this week’s opponent, an opponent we are all very familiar with.

New York Jets Secondary Grade Sheet – Week One

Mike O’Connor breaks down the New York Jets secondary’s performance in the week 1

Every week throughout the season Mike O’Connor will break down the performance of the New York Jets secondary. Here is his take on week 1 

With so much confidence in the New York Jets front seven all summer and heading into the regular season, the re-shaped secondary that was once undoubtedly the Jets’ biggest strength has been somewhat overlooked. Even heading into the week of preparation for Week One, most expected the Jets’ primary focus to be on the Bucs’ biggest game-breaker on offense: running back Doug Martin.  s we learned with the Jets’ close win, sometimes an offensive weapon’s greatest effect is to draw focus away from the rest of the team.
