New York Jets 1st & 10 – Ugly Winning

Stephen Russo goes 1st and 10 on the narratives around the New York Jets season and their ugly win over Pittsburgh

1st…

It seems as though there are only two possible narratives on this 2019 Jets’ season that has been, in a word, underwhelming. Regardless of the current record and the chance for this team to get to 7-9 with a win over a JV Bills team in Buffalo to improve their win total 3 games from 2018, I believe it’s safe to say that more was expected. Fans needed more from Adam Gase. We wanted to see more progress from Sam Darnold. We thought Le’Veon Bell would be more reminiscent of his Pittsburgh days. And basically, we felt that the offense and this team would be more competitive than it has been all season. I think, to varying degrees, everyone (well most everyone, I am speaking to Jets fans) can agree that all of those things are true.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Get It Done Ugly, Reach Six Wins

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 16-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers

We saw a fairly familiar script from the New York Jets today at MetLife Stadium, where they finished 5-3 overall this year. They started out on fire on offense, marching right down the field for a touchdown, then cooled off substantially but got enough from their defense and special teams to pull out a victory. It is a formula they beat the Giants and Dolphins with and it worked again today as they edged out the Pittsburgh Steelers 16-10. Similar to his time in Miami, Adam Gase has generally alternated one possession wins and blowout losses. With Buffalo up next with nothing to play for, he has a decent chance to squeeze a 7-9 record out of this season and further cement his job security, potentially all the way into 2021.

New York Jets – On The Head Coach

Joe Belic mounts his defense of Adam Gase

Jets fandom has its sights set on a new target, and the mission to fire Gase is in full effect.  While Gase deserves his share of the blame, I can’t say I’m behind the incessant desire to disparage him on social media, and it’s hard to find a discussion Jets related that is about much else.  I’m not here to defend Gase (I have my issues with him), but there is a difference between constructive criticism and destructive hate.

My Christmas Wish List for GM Joe Douglas

Stephen Russo with an offseason wish list for Joe Douglas and the New York Jets

‘Tis the season for giving. But, in the world of a Jets fan, ‘tis the season for wishing. While this roller coaster of a year winds down and results in a way that many of us feared it would, the offseason is right around the corner and our wish list is growing. For far too many years, the March through August stretch has been the most exciting time for Jets fans. The hope builds, the “on paper” discussions begin, and the actual play on the field isn’t given the chance to crush our dreams.

This feeling is all too familiar, but as the calendar turns to 2020 the Jets fanbase will have something to look forward to that they haven’t had in, well, forever… an undeniable blind faith in a General Manager. You’d have to go back to Bill Parcells to find a hire that was as universally accepted among Jets fans. That correlation is fitting because new GM Joe Douglas will be tasked with doing exactly what Bill Parcells did more than 20 years ago: propelling this organization out of mediocrity.

As the holidays quickly approach, I have given it my best shot at an offseason wish list for Jets new General Manager, Joe Douglas. Here we go!
