Dan Marcus hands out game balls for the New York Jets week 1 win over the Tampa Bay Bucs
This is marks the first regular season edition of “Game Balls” that almost never was as the New York Jets snatched defeat from the jaws of victory and victory from the jaws of defeat in the span of about two minutes. I never thought that I would see a team “out-Jets” the Jets but a little dose of Greg Schiano was apparently what the doctor ordered and without further ado, it is time to paint em’ up

A few extra thoughts on the New York Jets week one win after sleeping on it, re-watching the game and watching highlights of Geno Smith being pushed out of bounds 200 times. Look at that bench celebration, just terrific!

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio grades the New York Jets running backs from Week 1
Every week Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio will grade out the New York Jets running back’s performance. Here is his take after the Jets week 1 victory over Tampa
I grade each play on a 1 to 5 scale. Loss of yardage is rated a 0, no gain is rated a 1, a gain of 1-3 yards is rated a 2, gains of 4-6 are rated a 3, gains of 7-9 yards or are rated a 4, and gains of 10+ yards are rated a 5. TDs increase your overall grade by 10 points, and fumbles decrease your score by -5. I do it like this to factor in receptions, reward positive plays accordingly, and penalize negative plays accordingly. The total from the grades of each individual play are then converted to letter grades, with As representing (50 or higher), Bs (39-49), Cs (29-39), Ds (19-29), and Fs (0-18) being given out for total performance). Performance of the offensive line and available running space is also factored in.
Running Backs: Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell, Tommy Bohanon
Total Carries: 22
Rushing Yards: 34
Yards Per Carry: 1.5
Total Touches: 27
Total Yards: 90
Yards Per Touch: 3.3

Initial reaction to the New York Jets stunning opening day win, 18-17, over the Tampa Bay Bucs
Admit it, you were cursing Rex Ryan and his overrated, un-clutch defense after Tampa Bay took a 17-15 lead with 34 seconds left. A terrific all around effort from his unit and an encouraging debut from Geno Smith was about to go to waste because of one ill-timed blitz and one missed tackle. The media would pile on and revel in the Jets 0-1 start. Yet, today wasn’t a day for the “LOLJETS” – Today was a day for Rex and his team to pull a victory out of thin air and let Jets fans have something to smile about. Yes, they got a major hand from a poorly coached, undisciplined and overrated Tampa team but wins are wins and we’ll take them all.

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio takes a look at “what if ” the New York Jets don’t trade up for Darrelle Revis.
“A number that I think is interesting would be eight, and no, that’s not the amount of touchdown passes that Green Bay gave up against Arizona. That’s the number of touchdown passes we gave up all season as the Jets, and the biggest reason for that is Darrelle Revis.” Rex Ryan, after Charles Woodson won NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
This Sunday, the prodigal son returns home after an acrimonious split from the team that traded up for him and then made him the league’s highest paid cornerback just a couple of years ago. Whether you choose to boo him (I will) or cheer him when he is introduced, there is no denying that Darrelle Revis was the best cornerback in the NFL from about 2009 until his torn ACL last year. What if the New York Jets didn’t trade up for the man whose film Geno Smith isn’t studying? We at TOJ explore in Episode 3 of our “What If” Series.

Daniel Marcus with some final notes on the Jets vs. Bucs week 1 match-up
In “Super Fast Friday” Daniel Marcus will make a final collection of notes and links heading into the New York Jets upcoming game. Here is the week 1 edition.
It has become well-known to those in and around the New York Jets beat that Rex Ryan call his Friday press conference “Super Fast Friday” because at that point every question about Sunday’s match-up has likely already been asked and he can typically get out of there in about 10 minutes or so. In that same vein, by the time Friday comes around most Jets-related media outlets (ourselves included) have beat Sunday’s game to death so this will be the most succinct and to-the-point post game-related post of the week, where we give you everything you need to know for this week’s game and maybe a little bit extra
