New York Jets – The Ideal Coaching Staff

James Kuntz lays out the ideal New York Jets coaching staff…

This Saturday, I took on a fun thought exercise: what would an ideal Jets coaching staff would look like?

I ask readers to keep a few things in mind. It is plausible that a new coach might keep one or two high-achieving coaches (G. Williams, B. Boyer, Shawn Jefferson, etc) but is far more likely to gut the operation and start from scratch.

New York Jets – August Hot Seat Meter

Stephen Zantz with a hot seat meter check on the New York Jets heading into August…

Training Camp technically began (Players have reported for COVID-19 testing) over the past few days. It’s always a fun game to evaluate the hot seat of key figures within the Jets organization. I have used a scale of 1-10 to make these evaluations. Let’s dive in.

New York Jets – What To Expect From Sam Darnold in Year 3?

Stephen Russo with a deep dive on what to expect from Sam Darnold in year three…

While the Jamal Adams saga finally came to a close this weekend, Jets fans can put the drama behind them and look forward to the 2020 season filled with – you guessed it – so many question marks. The post-Adams-trade Jets are a team that is definitely building for the long haul.  And rightfully so, questions arise on the team’s intention of competing in 2020. The loss of Adams certainly doesn’t improve the defense, but does the addition of McDougald mitigate the loss enough to where it won’t be felt as much? Does the addition of McGovern and Becton on the offensive line make a big enough difference for Sam Darnold and return Le’Veon Bell to his Steeler form? While how much the Jets upgraded is debatable, the moves that were made also make every fan ask the question “Does different necessarily mean better?”

I am here to tell you – the answer doesn’t matter that much.

This season’s success or failure is based on one thing, and one thing only:  Sam Darnold.

TOJ Sidelines – A Note On Woody Johnson

Dalbin Osorio with thoughts on the recent news around New York Jets Owner Woody Johnson

Hey Mr. Johnson,

You don’t know who I am: we met 5 years ago at the last Jets game I went to, and you were very kind and even took a picture with a friend of mine and I at a tailgate. I’ve contributed a very miniscule amount to the fortune you’ve amassed while being the owner of my favorite American football team. You’ve overseen some of my favorite sports moments, though, and I generally think you have done a decent job. You, also, said we can never have enough Tebow, so you’ve authored some of my least favorite sports moments too.

New York Jets 2020 Opponents – Arizona Cardinals

Michael Meegan breaks down the New York Jets week 5 opponent, the Arizona Cardinals

In 2019 the Arizona Cardinals got bold and replaced first year HC Steve Wilks and 2018 top ten pick Josh Rosen with former college head coach Kliff Kingsbury and Heisman trophy winner Kyler Murray. 

While Arizona was deemed dysfunctional for hiring a college coach with a career losing record and going all in on a QB who is shorter than six feet, it turned out to be a masterstroke.  Murray won Offensive Rookie of the Year and Kingsbury with limited personnel helped orchestrate the second best rushing attack in the NFL.  In 2020 Arizona looked poised to build on the momentum built with Kingsbury and Murray in 2019 and looked to be one of the most exciting offenses going forward as they make their way to MetLife in week 5.

New York Jets – The New 2020 Reality

Joe Caporoso on how the reality of the 2020 season is going to impact the New York Jets

Like every team in the NFL, the New York Jets will be navigating arguably the most unique season in league history in 2020. I am writing this article under the assumption that there will be an attempted season, which I do believe will be the case, how it actually plays out is anybody’s guess. For now, let’s assume we are going to get a severely abridged training camp, preseason and 16 games with no fans in the stands with a possible delay of a few weeks for the opener…
