New York Jets – Under The Radar Players

Mike Donnelly on under the radar New York Jets who will have bigger roles in 2013

By now, Jets fans are all familiar with the many holes on this roster and have grand ideas in their heads about how they can all be fixed in one simple offseason. Well, obviously that isn’t going to be the case. There are simply too many holes to fill, and with the resources John Idzik has available — both draft picks-wise and money-wise — there is just no way they can all be plugged with new players. Therefore, some guys who are already here in Jets uniforms are going to have to fill those holes themselves. Many players who had smaller roles in 2012 are going to have to step up and contribute in a much bigger way once September roles around. Here are some of the players we can expect to see a whole lot more of in 2013. Continue reading “New York Jets – Under The Radar Players”

Turn On The Jets NFL Mock Draft 2.0

Chris Gross with the Turn On The Jets post combine 2013 NFL Mock Draft.

With the 2013 NFL Combine officially in the books, we are beginning to get a better idea of where prospects rank throughout the entire draft pool, as well as at their respective positions. The Franchise Tag deadline came and went on Monday, and with that, it is becoming slightly more feasible to identify team needs throughout the NFL. While these needs are subject to major change once the free agency period begins at the start of the new league year next week, let’s take a look at how the first round of this year’s draft could shake out, if it were to take place today.

Turn On The Jets 2013 Free Agency Primer 1.0

Turn On The Jets with a preview of how the New York Jets could handle free agency, which begins on March 12th – Version 1.0

NFL free agency kicks off on March 12th, only 8 days from today. The New York Jets are not expected to be overly active considering their salary cap situation. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, considering how the team has been run in previous years, they need to sit out the first wave of overpaid free agents and settle for 2nd and 3rd tier players who they can get at bargain rates. The focus for this team needs to be on building through the NFL Draft. Regardless, there will be some measure of activity from the Jets in the coming months, here is the first version of our round-up heading into next week

New York Jets Are Bargain Shopping For 2013

TJ Rosenthal on the New York Jets bargain hunting for 2013

David Garrard? Brady Quinn? What kind of upgrade at starting quarterback is this? Heck the Jets might as well let Vinny Testaverde sling the rock around Florham Park, right? GM John Idzik is clearly looking to change the foundation of the Jets for the better now, by trading, restructuring, and bargain shopping. Room will be made soon enough for some flexibility, but not the kind that will allow a plethora of high priced quality to enter the premises in return. So don’t be shocked folks, when the parade of low budget vets brought in for workouts, begins. It will happen early and often. As the Jets try to catch affordable lightning in a bottle more than once in 2013.

New York Jets – An Off-Season Of Overreactions And Bad Jokes

The New York Jets rumor mill is producing nothing but overreactions and bad jokes with no long term perspective in mind

Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com appropriately called making fun of the New York Jets our “fifth national sport” this morning on Twitter. At this point, it doesn’t matter what rumor the team is associated with or how flimsy that information is, the only object of every beat writer and major NFL writer is to sprint to the keyboard and fire off a snarky Tweet preceded by “LOLZJETS…AMIRITE?” Context isn’t important, looking at the broader picture isn’t important and certainly common sense isn’t important.

New York Jets – 49ers Collecting Revis Bait?

Is it only a matter of time before Darrelle Revis is traded to the San Francisco 49ers by the New York Jets?

The San Francisco 49ers traded quarterback Alex Smith to the ever-foolish Kansas City Chiefs for a 2013 second round pick and a 2014 conditional mid-round pick today, leaving them with an expected 15…yes 15 draft picks this April. Five of those picks are in the top 100 – 31st, 34th, 61st, 74th and 93rd overall. Darrelle Revis-Bait? It sure sounds like it.

2013 NFL Combine: Day 4 Recap

Frank Giasone recaps day 4 of the NFL Scouting Combine. Who should New York Jets fans keep their eyes on?

After a hectic four days at Lucas Oil Stadium, the 2013 NFL Combine culminated on Tuesday with the defensive backs getting on the field for a chance to showcase their athletic ability to on looking NFL teams. Just like every other day at the combine, a few prospective pro’s took advantage of the opportunity by dominating the day of drills, while others did just the opposite and are left waiting for another chance at their pro day.

It’s very easy to get caught up in the hype of the combine. After all, watching a group of elite athletes run 4.3 40’s and bench 225 lbs. two-dozed times with ease is pretty darn impressive. But it’s important to remember that while the results of these workouts are helpful when grading prospects, the combine is just another very small piece of an extraordinarily complicated puzzle.

New York Jets – Embrace The Rebuild

The New York Jets and their fanbase need to embrace the needed rebuilding process that will occur during the 2013 season

The New York Jets current level of roster talent and salary cap situation makes rebuilding an inevitable necessity. Rebuilding is the type of word people don’t hesitate to throw around when they are watching their team get Butt-Fumbled on National Television to their “biggest rivals” but when it comes to the actual practice, teams and fans get squeamish about it. Make no mistake, the New York Jets best approach to building a sustainable long term contender is cleaning house and making roster decisions with an eye towards 2014 and beyond, not 2013.
