New York Jets Hope Kony Ealy Will Give Them One Up Over New England

It is a terrible thing to play in the same league as the New England Patriots. Sure, the challenge is fun and exciting. But the pundits and analysts can make it a nightmare with the constant comparisons they make between New England and everyone else.

The New York Jets can tell you as much. New England never seems to make a misstep. The Jets, on the other hand, only ever make missteps. One can understand why these comparisons are so strong.

TOJ New York Jets Film Room Breakdown – Josh Martin, Week 1 (vs. Buffalo)

Dan Essien with a film room breakdown of New York Jets OLB Josh Martin’s week 1 performance against the Bills

One of the bright spots early on for the New York Jets this season has been OLB Josh Martin. He’s taken advantage of a positional coaching change, with the Jets hiring Kevin Greene, and used that opportunity to show he can contribute significantly with the starting defense. Martin shined throughout preseason and continued his impressive play in week 1 against the Bills. Here we’ll take a look at a few plays from him and how some reflect on the rest of the defense.

Joe Malfa kept a close eye on the performances of college’s top quarterback prospects this week, since one may very well be the franchise’s savior (or next great bust).

Here are the rankings ahead of Week 3:

New York Jets – The Problem With Todd Bowles’ Punting Decisions

Jared Scherl breaks down everything wrong with Todd Bowles decision to punt in the 4th quarter against Buffalo…

In a 2016 season full of mistakes, Todd Bowles’ most perplexing one came in Week 5 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Jets were trailing by 11 points with 7:36 left in the 4th quarter. Fitzpatrick and the Jets offense had the ball at their own 46 facing a 4th and 2. There should have been no decision to be made by Bowles. The Jets had to go for it. Instead, Bowles punted the ball away to Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers offense. The next time the Jets saw the ball they were down 18 with 1:51 left–the game was over.

Initial Reaction – Fire Up The Tank Engines, Jets Lose 21-12 To Buffalo

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 21-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills

The New York Jets 2017 regular season got off to a start that many expected. They slogged back and forth in an ugly game against Buffalo, losing 21-12 as they ran out of steam in the 4th quarter. This is likely one of the worst teams that they will play this season, which makes it that much more troubling (except for the tank) that they couldn’t stay within one possession. There were a few bright spots but this game was mostly a magnifying glass on the roster development and game management problems plaguing this franchise.
