TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio grades the New York Jets running backs through the first half of the season.
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.

Every week Cole Patterson will break down the performance of the New York Jets tight ends. Here is his take on week seven.
Looks like I will be the first to do a positional grade, here at TOJ, for this fresh can of ‘you know what’ delivered to the New York Jets, an enviable task. There is not much to say about the individual performance of the Jets tight ends this week and what does warrant mention is certainly not good…

Initial reaction to the Jets 49-9 loss to the Bengals
The New York Jets continue to be the NFL’s most inconsistent team. One week after an impressive overtime win against the New England Patriots, they were thoroughly humiliated by the Cincinnati Bengals 49-9. The game was every bit as ugly as the score indicates. The Jets were out-coached and out-classed on both sides of the football.

The Turn On The Jets 12 Pack with predictions for Jets vs. Bengals
The New York Jets record after a win this season is 0-3. Their record after a win last season was 1-5, including the least impressive two game winning streak in NFL history when they beat Ryan Lindley and the Cardinals 7-6 and the Jacksonville “Only The Tarps Are Watching” Jaguars 17-10. It is about time the Jets string together a pair of impressive wins and the schedule has now presented a perfect opportunity for it with a trip to Cincinnati to face the 5-2 Bengals.

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio breaks down the similarities between New York Jets Quarterback Geno Smith and Cincinnati Bengals Quarterback Andy Dalton
The New York Jets travel to Cincinatti this weekend to take on the AFC North leading Cincinnati Bengals. The match up will primarily hinge on how the team’s quarterbacks play. On the Jets sideline, there is rookie Geno Smith (the current frontrunner of the NFL’s offensive rookie of the year) and on the other sideline is fourth year Quarterback Andy Dalton.

Chris Celletti goes Throwback Thursday on a Jets/Bengals showdown back in 1997
Fanbases of both franchises probably don’t want to hear this, but the Jets and Bengals have a lot of similarities. Both teams were pretty good in the 80s; the Jets made the playoffs four times during the decade, while the Bengals made it thrice, appearing in two Super Bowls. The bulk of the 90s was pretty bad for both teams — for the Bengals, it was an entire decade of horror, bleeding over into the naughts. Cincinnati made the playoffs in 1990 and 2005, and exactly zero times in between those years. The early and mid 90s were among the Jets’ darker days as well, in some irony, highlighted by two former Bengals in QB Boomer Esiason and offensive coordinator-turned-Jet-head-coach Bruce Coslet (thanks, guys!)
Both teams haven’t been able to sustain much long-term success. Neither is the laughingstock they’re quite often made out to be anymore, but they also haven’t been able to stack too many positive seasons together. When it feels like they’ve turned the corner, reality seems to rear its ugly head.
