Episode 629 – The First Annual Same Ol’ Jets Tournament w/Joe Barone & Rob Pelaez

Scott Mason talks with former NHL PR Rep Joe Barrone and Rob Pelaez of Blank Slate Media to discuss their first annual Sam Ol’ Jets Tournament!

Episode 629 of “Play Like A Jet” is here! Subscribe on iTunes or check out the audio below. Scott Mason talks with former NHL PR Rep Joe Barone and Rob Pelaez of Blank Slate Media to discuss their first annual Sam Ol’ Jets Tournament!

Joe and Rob are both lifelong Jets fans from a families of lifelong Jets fans, so what happened when they put their heads together?  They created the first annual Same Ol’ Jets Tournament in the mold of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament! 

But what makes this tournament different is that it is not about the best or worst moments in Jets history, but the “Jetsiest” moments in Jets history, meaning events that only could have happened to the Jets.  The beauty of the tournament is that while you will see all the familiar favorites and recent moments, there are a ton of fun historical deep cuts that span the 50+ year existence of the franchise that only hardcore Jets fans would know about. 

Joe and Rob both did a terrific job of putting these brackets together and drew well from their own memories, the memories of family members, and exhaustive research on the team’s history.

One of the most fun episodes we have ever done and if you are a Jets fan, you will absolutely love it.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Sign ILB Patrick Onwuasor

Michael Meegan with initial reaction to the New York Jets signing ILB Patrick Onwuasor

Joe Douglas returned to the Baltimore well as the Jets have agreed to a 1-year deal with ILB Patrick Onwuasor. He is being reunited with former teammate CJ Mosley, who he formed quite the tandem with in 2017- 2018 when he racked up 149 tackles, 12 TFLs, 6 sacks, and 3 forced fumbles over the two-year stretch.  His numbers dipped across the board in 2019 without Mosley and his PFF grade shot down almost 20 points from a 67.1 in 2018 to a 49.4.

New York Jets – Adam Gase, 3 Up & 3 Down

Stephen Russo goes 3 up and 3 down on New York Jets HC Adam Gase

With week one of Free Agency off to hot start around the league, Jets GM Joe Douglas has taken a simple, understated, and intelligent approach to put his stamp on the team. His best move thus far is undoubtedly Connor McGovern, the versatile interior offensive lineman from Denver – smart, durable, and penalty free – I like the sound of that! Douglas has taken other measures (George Fant, Josh Andrews, Greg Van Roten, re-signing Alex Lewis) as well to stick to his promise of bolstering a struggling offensive line unit from 2019. The bottom line is that he has placed focus in arguably the most important area of a team, when his predecessors spent years neglecting it. Now, will these moves pan out? Time will tell. But there is nowhere to go but up for this unit.
