New York Jets Countdown to the 2014 Offseason: Wide Receiver

The New York Jets could have as many as twelve draft picks in 2014. As they stand right now, the Jets have $25,861,726 in cap space. With expected cuts of Santonio Holmes, Mark Sanchez, and Antonio Cromartie, the Jets should have $51,911,726 in cap space. That gives them a lot of room to work with.

New York Jets Second Half Offensive Deep Dive

The New York Jets have put together a surprisingly productive nine games on offense this season. No, the statistical numbers aren’t impressive (11th in rushing yards, 26th in passing yards, 21st in total offense and 27th in points per game) but remember what their personnel is. This a team with a rookie second round quarterback, an extremely beat up and thin group of tight ends and receivers, a running back group that is just now rounding into shape and a slightly above average at best offensive line. When they’ve been bad, they’ve been really bad which has hurt their statistics but they answered the bell for 30 points in upset wins over Atlanta and New England, along with 27 points in last week’s upset over New Orleans. What have we seen so far and what can we expect over their final seven game playoff push?

New York Jets Regular Season Launch – Positional Outlooks: Offense

Mike O’Connor with a look at where the New York Jets’ offensive positions stand heading into the season

As a football fan, being surprised by a position group on your favorite team can be a great or terrible thing. Watching a position group exceed expectations is uplifting, but there’s nothing worse than being slapped in the face by poor play from a position that you didn’t think could be such a weak spot. Thus, it can only help to have a thorough knowledge of how the different positions could perform, how the depth will hold up, if they can be liabilities throughout the year, and if they could be possible draft or off-season needs in the future.
