Every week Cole Patterson will break down the performance of the New York Jets tight ends. Here is his take on week six.
Grading Scale: Tight end is an interesting position to grade out, given that they are responsible for both receiving and blocking. As receivers in the West Coast Offense, tight ends will be asked to line up anywhere from slot, to split end, to flanker and be responsible for the entire route tree. As blockers in the offense, they will be assigned delayed releases, one-on-one blocks, or simply to chip a pass rusher. With these roles in mind, it is difficult to create a complex grading scale based on YPC or blocking, as the play may conclude before the tight end’s true role on the play is clear. All of that is to say, because the tight end position is so enigmatic (particularly in a WCO) a simple letter based grading scale is best employed.
- A = Entirely positive impact
- B = Consistent positive impact, few minor mistakes
- C = Equal level of positive and negative impact, average, or made no impact plays whatsoever
- D = Mostly negative impact, with room for improvement
- F = Entirely negative impact

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio grades the New York Jets running backs in week 6
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.
Running Backs: Bilal Powell, Tommy Bohanon, Chris Ivory, Mike Goodson
Total Carries: 17
Rushing Yards: 75
Yards Per Carry: 4.4
Total Touches: 21
Total Yards: 105
Yards Per Touch: 5.0

TJ Rosenthal goes No Huddle on the New York Jets loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers
Initial reaction to the New York Jets frustrating 19-6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers
Today had all the makings of a trap game and the New York Jets fell right into it against the previously 0-4 Pittsburgh Steelers. With two weeks to prepare and the Jets on a short week after their biggest win of the season, Pittsburgh pushed the Jets around on their own field and out schemed them on both sides of the football. It was a disappointing step back after the progress seemingly made last week. The timing couldn’t have been worse either as the Jets now enter the most difficult 3 game stretch left on their schedule.

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio breaks down the New York Jets Week 6 opponent, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Thanks to Geno Smith’s third game winning drive of the season, the Jets went into Atlanta and beat Matt Ryan and his fantasy football offense. Standing at 3-2, the Jets have begun to turn some heads behind a potent defensive line, a rejuvenated offensive line, and a poised rookie QB. On Week 6, they welcome the six-time Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers. Let’s get to know the opponent for Week 6.

The Turn On The Jets 12 Pack gives predictions for Jets vs. Steelers
There is nothing worse than a forced reduction of something down to an all or nothing explanation. We live in too much of a “FIRST TAKE” world, where being the loudest takes precedent over actual analysis and discussion. Very rarely are things black and white. There are shades of gray to most issues.
This carries over to the world of sports, which we should always remember is a world that is ultimately meant to be a fun distraction from the anxieties and pressures of all those important “real world” situations. If you aren’t having fun following your team or your game, what is the point?

Week 6 of the Turn On The Jets Podcast previewing Jets vs. Steelers and featuring TJ Rosenthal and Chris Lopresti
With Damon Harrison playing so surprisingly well, the Jets may have some excellent trade value in Kenrick Ellis.
Value is such a wonderful thing, but it complicates a lot of situations when it comes to the NFL and NFL Draft. What can you get, what can you give, and how high is the risk? One proposal that I’ve been pondering lately has actually made sense to me more and more is the idea of John Idzik trading Kenrick Ellis.
