Dan Essien on statistical objectives for the New York Jets offense in the upcoming 2017 regular season.

The New York Jets are approaching the upcoming season looking for progress from their young, inexperienced roster as they rebuild. The objectives now are to discover potential, see growth, and, in a few cases, see dominance. Thankfully for most positions, that can be measured. Let’s look at some statistical objectives for the Jets players that are important for the team’s future. We’ll also use stats from seasons past of current NFL players as a template or “target model” for these objectives.

New York Jets – What Could They Have Done Differently?

Joe Caporoso with alternate decisions the New York Jets could have made in recent years…

Heading into year three of the Mike Maccagnan/Todd Bowles regime, the New York Jets have fully hit the reset the button. After two years of missing the playoffs, they have cleared the roster of nearly all veterans and are entering the season projected by most as one of the worst, if not the worst, team in the NFL. Many are anticipating a top five pick to compliment what should be 70-80 million dollars in cap space to spend, after further veteran subtractions are made. 

What could Maccagnan have done different throughout his first two years plus on the job to avoid likely starting his GM career with three straight years of missing the playoffs?

Ten Years Of Blogging – Now, What Did You Learn?

Joe Caporoso with what he has learned through ten years of blogging about his favorite but generally bad football team…

I have been blogging about the New York Jets for roughly ten years, most of them through this website. It has been an interesting journey that has yielded me a full time career in sports while also sucking away chunks of time to devour junk food on Twitter and get irrationally annoyed about silly things. I decided to take a step back and offer observations about being a fan who blogs about their favorite team. I spoke with Corey Griffin and Mike Dussault on the topic as well and their insight is included below.
