New York Jets Running Backs Grade Sheet (Week 12)

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio grades the New York Jets running backs after Week 12.

Grading Scale

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.

New York Jets Recreation Football – Week 12 Passing Game Breakdown

Joe Caporoso breaks down the New York Jets passing game in week 12

The New York Jets passing game was an unmitigated disaster in week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens. After going through the tape, this was a unit wide failure that likely trickles down from Rex Ryan’s input to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and includes unsteady play from the quarterback, offensive line, tight ends, running backs and wide receivers. It is easy to immediately assess the bulk of the blame on Smith at quarterback and while he did not play well this past Sunday and hasn’t played well the past month, the tape tells a much more complex story. Let’s work through Smith’s dropbacks and see what we find:

Where Have You Gone Chad Pennington?

Dan Marcus gets wistful about the last Jets quarterback who didn’t regularly turn the ball over

If you told me six years ago that I would be longing for and reminiscent of the Chad Pennington years, I would have told you that you were crazy but here we are and the Jets are no closer to the second of coming of Chad Pennington than they are to the second coming of Joe Namath. Since the Jets traded for Brett Favre in the Summer of 2008 and let Chad go to the Dolphins, the Jets Quarterbacks have turned the ball over at what can be described as a stupid rate.

Initial Reaction – Jets Set Game Of Football Back Decades, Lose 19-3

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets depressing 19-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens

The New York Jets effectively set the game of football back 20-30 years today, as they lost to the Baltimore Ravens 19-3. This was an ugly showing from the Jets, particularly on offense where they served an emphatic reminder of their lack of talent on that side of the football.

Super Fast Friday: “Eating Crow”

Dan Marcus goes Super Fast Friday to prepare you for Jets/Ravens

The Jets made NFL history last Sunday by becoming the most inconsistent team in league history as the first team to alternate wins and losses through their first 10 games. One can only hope that the trend continues, if only for one more week as the Jets need to bounce back against the Raven in order to stay competitive in the AFC. I won’t rehash the all-too-fresh memories of last week’s debacle so here’s everything you need to know for this Sunday’s game against the Ravens:

The bizarre 2013 season of the New York Jets continues this Sunday in Baltimore, where they will face the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens who are currently 4-6. Despite the Jets having a one game better record, most are assuming the Jets are walking into a buzzsaw.

New York Jets Defensive Line Grade Sheet: Week 11

Frank Giasone grades out the Jets DL in week 11

The Jets continued their trend of playing maddeningly inconsistent football in Sunday’s road loss to division rival Buffalo, as much of the playoff talk from the fanbase in the weeks leading up to this game have now been replaced with questions and concerns regarding this team and its components moving forward.

It’s no secret that this team has been riddled with inconsistency. Whether it’s alternating wins and losses or the abysmal performances on the road, this Jets team is a tough one to figure out. Hidden inside this inconsistent season, though, have been a few consistencies (both good and bad) from game-to-game on the defensive side of the ball. And those trends continued on Sunday.

New York Jets & the AFC Playoff Picture Entering Week 12

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio breaks down the AFC Playoff Picture and the New York Jets standing heading into Week 12.

The New York Jets squandered a very good opportunity during Week 11. A win over the 3-7 Bills, coupled with a loss by the New England Patriots, would’ve put the Jets one game back of their arch rival in the division with 6 to play. Instead, the Jets didn’t take care of their business and were routed by the Bills. It was a horrible performance by a team that now finds itself faced with the daunting task of beating the defending Super Bowl Champion Ravens on the road. Let’s take a look at the AFC Playoff Picture heading into Week 12.
