1st & 10 – Jets Drop to 0-3 With Another Dud in New England

Stephen Russo goes 1st and 10 on the New York Jets 0-3 start

1st…

It was clearly unrealistic to expect the Jets to go into Gillette Stadium on Sunday and pull out a victory. They were without 7 starters (!) and their most important pieces on both sides of the ball in Mosley and Darnold. However, what is not unrealistic is to expect them to put up a fight. Sunday, instead of looking at this as a situation where they were playing with house money, they saw it as a reason to lay down. That is 100% on the coaching staff. Again, there was no creativity, no imagination, no trick plays. No chances taken, no throws downfield. Nothing. Adam Gase and his staff appeared to be perfectly content running a vanilla game plan, taking their lumps, and sauntering back to New Jersey to lick their wounds. On an NFL Sunday that featured seven different teams sending their backup quarterbacks into action, only one team was only able to muster 105 yards of total offense and no offensive points. Anyone know which team???

New York Jets Loss Vent – The Hall Pass Season

Joe Caporoso with a loss vent on the New York Jets impending hall pass season

The New York Jets head into their bye week at 0-3, with three conference and two divisional losses under their belt. In a vacuum, their record is somewhat understandable considering their quarterback situation and the absence of CJ Mosley but 0-3 does not tell the whole story of their nightmarish start. The Jets have excuses to be bad this year but handing out a blank hall pass to the organization because of a handful of injuries is not the answer to turning around arguably the worst stretch in franchise history (14-37 in their past 51 games, 51-80 since 2010 and heading towards nine straight years of no playoffs).

Initial Reaction – What Did You Expect? Jets Trampled 30-14 By Patriots

Joe Caporoso with an initial reaction to the New York Jets 30-14 loss to the New England Patriots

It is rare that a 30-14 score does not do justice to how one sided a football game is. This 30-14 score does not. This game was over after the first quarter. The points scored by the New York Jets, after the score was 30-0, came on a muffed punt into the end zone and on a pick six off New England’s backup quarterback. As it stands now, the Jets defense and special teams have three touchdowns in three games, while their offense has one total touchdown. This is Kotite-Era Football.

New York Jets vs. New England Patriots, Week 3 – The Three Things (Rant On Team Building)

Joe Caporoso with three things about Jets vs. Patriots in week 3 (and a rant about team building)

A minor audible this week as I am not sure there is a ton more you need to know about Jets vs. Patriots, except that New England is rightly over 20 point favorites and have won their home game against the Jets by an average of 31 points over the past three years. The last touchdown the Jets have scored in New England was in 2015 by CHRIS IVORY. Sweet Jesus.

Today, you will get ONE THING about Jets vs. Patriots, followed an aggregation of rantings about how a team (and specifically this Jets team) needs to be built going forward, and where they have faltered in the past.
