Initial Reaction – Jets Have No Quarterback, Tank Picks Up Speed

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 14-7 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers…

The New York Jets lost today at MetLife Stadium 14-7 to the Los Angeles Chargers. It was an uneventful, sloppy game that only highlighted the team’s shortcomings at the game’s most critical positions. Their quarterback was awful. Their pass rush was awful. When it mattered, their coverage was awful. Rinse and repeat. The good news? The team moved from the 10th pick in the NFL Draft to the 8th pick, thanks to a Bengals and Bears victory.

New York Jets Vs. Los Angeles Chargers Position Breakdown

Greg Armstrong with a positional breakdown of Jets vs Chargers…

It’s a Christmas Eve showdown between the tanking Jets and a Chargers team fresh off of a prime time beatdown handed to them by the Chiefs. We aren’t going to find out anything more than we already know about this Jets team but hey, it’s football and we only get 16 of these games a year. I take a look at how the teams matchup with one another.  (more…)

Bowl Game Prospect Viewing Guide: Birmingham Bowl and Armed Forces Bowl

Joe Malfa with a prospect viewing guide for the Birmingham Bowl and Armed Forces Bowl, featuring Texas Tech, USF, Army, and San Diego State…

‘Tis the season for over 40 college bowl games sponsored by some very obscure companies to celebrate the mediocrity of 6-6 teams. Surely there is an angry old man somewhere waving his fist screaming about how “everyone gets a trophy” and “the Millennials are ruining everything.” At TOJ, we love bowl season. Maybe not for the games because watching Western Kentucky against Georgia State is not very appealing, but it gives us a chance to watch some teams that we did not get a chance to watch this season and evaluate some prospects who may not have been regularly exposed to us.

New York Jets Three Up/Three Down – Week 16 Edition

Mike Nash goes three up, three down on the New York Jets heading into week 16…

Somehow someway, the New York Jets found a way to hang in there with the Saints on Sunday and almost walked out with a win, but they settled for another competitive loss instead. 

Even though they gave up 31 points, the defense played one of its best games of the season. Xavier Cooper, #75 in your programs, was solid playing in place of the benched/suspended/late/soon to be ex-Jet, Muhammad Wilkerson.

Let’s take a look at this week’s three up/three down..
