Grading the 2021 NY Jets Coaching Staff

Matt Marciano provides his opinion on the new Jets Coaching Staff.

The New York Jets finally moved away from the two disastrous years of the Adam Gase era, in which the Jets went 9-23. This period also saw the departure of Jamal Adams and Le’Veon Bell and a disgusted and disappointed Jets fanbase, as the Jets have not made the playoffs since 2011, when they beat the Colts, Patriots and lost to the Steelers in the AFC Championship Game.

The Case for Trading for Deshaun Watson

Making the case for the New York Jets to make a franchise-altering trade for Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.

The New York Jets finally got a new head coach in Robert Saleh. While the hire of Saleh appears to be a great one that could eventually change the trajectory of the Jets for many years to come, the Jets still need to get a new quarterback, sooner rather than later. The best solution for the Jets to fix the current quarterback mess that they have is to trade for beleaguered Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.


NY Jets Need to Hire Doug Pederson as Next Head Coach

Matt Marciano argues that the Jets should hire Doug Pederson.

Okay Jets fans…. buckle up as what I am about to say may not be a popular position. The Jets should hire the former Eagles coach, who was fired by the team last night to be their next head coach. Pederson would bring successful head coaching experience, a Super Bowl ring as a head coach and the leadership that is needed to rebuild the NY Jets.


A Look At Some of the Jets Head Coaching Options

Matt Marciano provides his thoughts on Jets HC candidates.

The New York Jets’ ownership this Sunday night, following the Jets 28-14 loss to the Patriots, finally did something right. They fired head coach Adam Gase after an abysmal 9-23 record in two years leading the Jets. The biggest decision of the tenure of GM Joe Douglas now looms large and that is finding a head coach that can change the culture of the Jets and to make the Jets a more competitive team moving forward. Here is a list I compiled of some of the candidates that the Jets should pursue (and not pursue). Some of these candidates the Jets have already received permission to speak to as part of their head coaching search.


Initial Reaction – Time for a New Quarterback and Head Coach for the Jets…

Matthew Marciano with an initial reaction to the New York Jets final 2020 loss and decision to fire Adam Gase

Well, New York Jets fans there was some good news after the Jets lost to the Patriots in Foxborough yesterday, 28-14, to end the season with a 2-14 record. The first bit of good news, two years in the making, was that after going 9-23 in two seasons with the team, head coach Adam Gase is gone. The second bit of good news was that the Jets will hopefully be looking at drafting a quarterback with the second pick in the NFL Draft, after Sam Darnold not showing any signs of being a franchise quarterback for the Jets after three seasons and working under two head coaches during that time.

Let’s look at the best news that Jets fans have gotten in a while – that Adam Gase is gone.


Jets Win Another Game, Lose Lawrence and Sam Darnold Still Struggles

Matt Marciano laments the Jets losing the Trevor Lawrence sweepstakes and provides his opinion on how the number two overall pick should be used.

The New York Jets won their second game of the season, defeating a playoff team in the Cleveland Browns by a score of 23-16. In the process, the Jacksonville Jaguars lost once again, to the Chicago Bears. The Jags losing, combined with the Jets winning, has given the Jags the coveted first overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and the right to pick a possible franchise altering quarterback in Trevor Lawrence.


Jets Recap… There Goes Trevor Lawrence Jets Fans

Matt Marciano with initial reaction to the Jets first win of the year….

After seeing the Jets beat the Los Angeles Rams this afternoon, I have to admit, I am about done rooting for this team or following the team. The Jets needed to lose all of their remaining games, as the Jaguars do not seem to be winning a game anytime soon and now look like they will get the number one pick in the draft next year and get the quarterback that the Jets were meant to have lead their franchise for over the next decade, Trevor Lawrence.


Week 14 Reaction – The Trevor Tank Rolls On

The New York Jets continue to prove in each of their games this season that they need a competent head coach next season, that they do not have the quarterback of the future in Sam Darnold and that they do not even try to play competitive in football games this entire season, with the exception being blown leads against the New England Patriots earlier this season and who could forget the embarrassing loss to the Las Vegas Raiders over a week ago.


New York Jets Initial Reaction – Jets Keep Tanking for Trevor, Gregg Is Gone

Matt Marciano with initial reaction to the New York Jets dropping to 0-12 and quick thoughts from Joe Caporoso on the Gregg Williams firing

From JC on Gregg Williams: 

The Jets made the somewhat surprising decision to fire Defensive Coordinator Gregg Williams today, as the clear scapegoat for yesterday’s loss to the Oakland Raiders. Williams was a pleasant surprise in 2019 and was the only major hire Adam Gase made that was not dragged along from his unsuccessful Miami years (Interim Defensive Coordinator Frank Bush was someone who was dragged). Williams was bad this year and has generally been overrated by fans but it is comical to see the media outcry around him needing to be canned immediately while ignoring Head Coach Adam Gase’s 0-12 record and 32nd ranked offense. For his inconsistencies, who do you think is a more respected figure in the Jets locker room, playing tic-tac-toe on his play sheet, throw everybody under the bus Gase or the maniac Williams? I am not sure it is close. Everybody is gone from this staff in a few weeks and this should actually help the tank in the short term as since Gase was hired, it has been the defense who has been the primary reason for most of the team’s victories and close games.

Now on to Matt’s article…

I have a confession to make – as a long-suffering, but proud, NY Jets fan, I was rooting for the Jets to lose yesterday to the Las Vegas Raider. I feel like I have suffered enough as a Jets fan and would like to start seeing some glimmer of hope for the Jets after what has been their most horrible season in team history.


Initial Reaction – New York Jets Remain Without a Win, Amen

Matt Marciano with his reaction to the New York Jets dropping to 0-11…

The New York Jets continued their embarrassing and forgettable season, dropping to 0-11 following a lopsided 20-3 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Sam Darnold continued to look horrible, throwing two interceptions, while journeyman (and former Jets quarterback) Ryan Fitzpatrick made it look easy against the Jets.
