TOJ Film Room – New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall

Joe Caporoso breaks down the tape on newly acquired New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall – What can he bring to the offense?

To say the New York Jets have lacked production from the wide receiver position in recent seasons would be an understatement. Eric Decker managed a respectable 74 receptions for 962 yards and 5 touchdowns in 2014 despite missing time with injuries and abysmal quarterbacking. However, prior to that here is the Jets leading receiver every season since Jerricho Cotchery eclipsed 1,000 yards in 2007:

  • 2008: Jerricho Cotchery – 71 receptions, 858 yards, 5 touchdowns
  • 2009: Jerricho Cotchery – 57 receptions, 821 yards, 3 touchdowns
  • 2010: Braylon Edwards – 53 receptions, 904 yards, 7 touchdowns
  • 2011: Santonio Holmes – 51 receptions, 654 yards, 8 touchdowns
  • 2012: Jeremy Kerley – 56 receptions, 827 yards, 2 touchdowns
  • 2013: Jeremy Kerley – 43 receptions, 523 yards, 3 touchdowns
  • 2014: Eric Decker – 74 receptions, 962 yards, 5 touchdowns

Enter Brandon Marshall, who was acquired for a 5th round pick this off-season. Marshall has been over 1,000 yards in seven of his last eight seasons and exceeded ten touchdowns in three of those years. In 2014, a lung and rib injury kept him out of the final 3.5 games of the season but he still managed 721 yards and eight touchdowns. Marshall has found success throughout his career despite playing with an erratic Jay Cutler, Josh McCown, Matt Moore, Chad Henne, and Kyle Orton.

Let’s take a deeper dive into Marshall’s game and how it could be integrated into the 2015 New York Jets offense…

TOJ Film Room – Chan Gailey’s, Offense Part 1

Mike Nolan steps into the TOJ Film Room for part one of looking at Chan Gailey’s offense…

The New York Jets have officially announced Chan Gailey as the team’s next Offensive Coordinator. This may seem like a strange hire. Gailey hasn’t coached since 2012 and his Head Coaching stints were nothing, if not underwhelming.  Even so, many around the league consider Gailey to be a strong offensive mind. TOJ’s Dalbin Osorio took a look at Gailey’s career here. Today, Mike Nolan dives into the film to see what Jets fans can expect from Gailey’s system. In Part 1, Mike takes a look at Gailey’s overall offensive philosophy…

New York Jets – Where Eric Decker Will Help

Joe Caporoso with a breakdown of where Eric Decker and a healthy Jeremy Kerley and David Nelson will help the Jets in 2014

It is not a mystery that the New York Jets struggled at the wide receiver position in 2013. Their problems in the passing game were a unit wide failure. Geno Smith was inconsistent and inaccurate. The offensive line struggled in pass protection and had ugly growing pains from Brian Winters. At tight end, they received mediocre overall play. However, the play of the receivers seemed to be an accurate barometer for the overall production of the passing game.

NOTE: Don’t miss part two of my Jets offseason breakdown with Dom Cosentino of NJ.com right here. In case you missed it, here is part one.

TOJ Film Room: Grading the 2012 Offensive Line – Austin Howard

Mike Nolan steps into the film room to grade the 2012 Jets’ Offensive Line. Next up is starting Right Tackle Austin Howard.

Before we get to the regular season, I wanted to take a look at some 2012 film of the Jets’ Offensive Line to see what is returning this year and to see what the Jets may have lost from 2012. During the regular season, I will be running a weekly column where I will grade out the offensive line’s individual performances. Unlike Pro Football Focus, I am going to grade the line from as much of a coach’s perspective as I can. This means that I will base my grades on technique and assignment in addition to play result. For the second part of the film study, let’s see what we found out about starting Right Tackle Austin Howard. To see how players are graded check out the first part of the series on D’Brickashaw Ferguson.

Turn On The Jets Film Room – New York Jets CB Darrin Walls

Mike O’Connor breaks down the film on New York Jets CB Darrin Walls in 2012. What can we expect from him this season?

When Darrelle Revis went down for the year in Week 3 of the 2012 season, the Jets were forced to look into the cornerback pool in search of depth to make up for his absence. Among their signings was former Falcons’ corner Darrin Walls to the practice squad. Very little was made of the move, but few could have predicted that Walls, the Notre Dame alum, would be playing significant snaps later in the season. Today, we step into the film room to take a closer look at how he played and what he could contribute in 2013.
