Dalbin Osorio looks at veteran running back options for the New York Jets
With an injured hamstring hindering Chris Ivory’s ability to practice with the New York Jets, coupled with Mike Goodson’s disappearing act (seriously, would anyone be surprised if Mike Goodson turned up with the 14 seconds missing from the Watergate Tapes?) and Joe McKnight’s overall ineffectiveness. It is becoming clear the Jets may need to bring in some reinforcements at running back. Here is a look at five realistic options they can/should target at RB, either via free agency or trade, ranked in order from most likely to least likely. Let’s get to it.

Dan Marcus on the challenges of the New York Jets 2013 schedule and the need for a fast start
Let me preface by saying that I understand the game is not played on paper and much can and will change between now and Week 1. That said, after pouring over the New York Jets regular season schedule, I had a difficult time conjuring up ways they could make a legitimate postseason run.

Is year 5 too late for New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez to resurrect his career? Dalbin Osorio explores…
Due to the previous Collective Bargaining Agreement, first round quarterbacks were taken to ideally be the franchise quarterback for an extended period of time. If you connected with your pick, you have Peyton Manning or Donovan McNabb and can compete for a decade plus despite glaring weaknesses at other position groups. If you miss, you end up with Ryan Leaf and your franchise is set back for years. Sometimes, you end up right in the middle. You don’t get a savior (Jason Campbell) but you don’t get a bust either (Sam Bradford). Sometimes, you get a guy that leads your team to moderate success before flaming out amid allegations of blackballing and conspiracies (Vince Young) or a guy that goes on and gives you glimpses of why they were a first round QB on another team (Jay Cutler). Is improvement in the 5th year for a QB too much to ask for a former 5th overall pick? Let’s look at how other first round QBs drafted from 2001-2008 have done in year 5 and see if there’s any reason to hope for “Moscato” Mark Sanchez.

The New York Jets have came up with a new procedure for the J-E-T-S chant. Oh no…
The in-stadium experience at New York Jets games has never been ideal. Whether it was the goofy “Game-Ball” attempting to lead cheers on the video board a few years back or the occasional saturation of away fans (remember Jets vs. Pittsburgh in 2007?), I wouldn’t call the Jets home-field advantage one of the league’s best. It wasn’t easy to play in “Giants Stadium” with red seats and an overall vibe that was catered to the other team to town.
There was a brief positive respite in 2009 and 2010, the final year in the old stadium and the first year in the new stadium. The best Jets crowd I’ve experienced in my life was a week 2 victory over the New England Patriots in 2009. It was a rare occasion where the crowd seemingly took over the game. The building shook. Tom Brady and the New England offense was forced into multiple false starts and delay of game penalties. The sirens rang every time Rex Ryan’s defense took the field. There was a unique level of energy that day. This positive environment generally carried over the rest of the season and into 2010, not surprisingly mirroring the success of the team.

Connor Rogers continues his look at the New York Jets training camp battles by focusing on the quarterback position
Our series of taking a deeper look at the battles going on at New York Jets training camp continues by focusing on the quarterback spot. Quarterback is certainly a position that never lacks drama with the Jets and this year it seems to be at an all time high. The former 5th overall pick from the 2009 draft Mark Sanchez is competing against this year’s second round pick Geno Smith to be the starter. Meanwhile, Greg McElroy and Matt Simms compete for the 3rd string spot. Both won’t be solved until preseason, but let’s see how things are projected and also how each look after few days of practice.
