Can Rex Ryan Save His Job With The New York Jets?

Joe Caporoso looks at how Rex Ryan can save his job with the New York Jets

For the third year row, speculation is swirling about Rex Ryan’s job security with the New York Jets. Even prior to last week’s upset of the Pittsburgh Steelers, there was a still reasonable chance Rex would be brought back next year. This isn’t an article about whether or not Rex Ryan should be brought back. It is an article about the probability of him actually coming back and what he needs to do over the final six games to return…

New York Jets – Inside the Film Room: Get Off the Field Edition

Connor Rogers goes inside the film room to break down the Jets defense vs. the Patriots in a week 7 Thursday night match up.

In a Thursday night match up that came down to the final seconds, the Jets lost a tight one once again. On the bright side, outside of a few brain lapses, the defense seems to be finding consistency. What has Rex Ryan changed since the Jets were blown out in San Diego a few weeks back? Let’s take a look… Continue reading “New York Jets – Inside the Film Room: Get Off the Field Edition”

Muhammad Wilkerson: The Engine to Rex Ryan’s Defense

Muhammad Wilkerson, like many players on the Jets defense, has the skill set to excel in many different roles. He is regarded as a 3-4 defensive end, but Rex Ryan lines up Wilkerson all over the defensive line. Let’s jump into the film room and take a look.

Rex Ryan’s Evolving New York Jets Defense

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio compares the 2009 New York Jets defense with the 2013 New York Jets defense to see if there are any trends for 2014.

As Rex Ryan prepares to begin his sixth season as the HC of the NYJ, all eyes will be on second year QB Geno Smith, free agent acquisition Eric Decker, and rookie Calvin Pryor’s impact on what could be a very good Jets defense. How good, you ask? Let’s begin by comparing last year’s unit to arguably Rex’s best unit, which was the 2009 defense.

Interview with Jace Amaro, New York Jets Tight End

Mike Donnelly of Turn On The Jets interviews New York jets rookie Tight End, Jace Amaro.

It is no secret that many of us here on Turn On The Jets were huge fans of Jace Amaro heading into the NFL draft this year. Personally, I felt like he had all the tools to be a perfect fit in Marty Mornhinweg’s offense and he would do wonders for Geno Smith, who didn’t have many reliable targets last year as a rookie. When the #18 pick rolled around and the Jets were on the clock, Amaro was on my short list of players I wanted to see have his name called (as I tweeted). As we know, that didn’t happen, and while I loved the Calvin Pryor selection, I was a little bit bummed that we may have missed out on the next Jimmy Graham or Gronk.

Grading the New York Jets 2014 Lineup Changes (Defense)

Mike Donnelly of TurnOnTheJets breaks down the New York Jets lineup changes on defense heading into 2014.

It’s no secret that the New York Jets defense has been the backbone of the team since the day Rex Ryan arrived. In 2013, the unit was able to rebuild on the fly as they had seven new starters, including two rookies, and still managed to field a very good defense. The stats are somewhat skewed thanks to an offense that constantly turned the ball over and put them in bad situations, but they still finished 11th overall with 334.9 yards a game. With a more experienced unit heading into 2014, how are they shaping up compared to last year’s squad? Let’s take a look. Continue reading “Grading the New York Jets 2014 Lineup Changes (Defense)”
