New York Jets – Options at Head Coach 

Matt Marciano reviews common names suggested to be the New York Jets next Head Coach…

In an article that appeared yesterday on NJ.com entitled “If the Jets fire Adam Gase, who will be the next head coach? 5 possible candidates if Christopher Johnson pulls the plug,” writer Chris Ryan looks at potential head coaching options for the Jets if they have the guts to rid fans of the horrible head coaching tenure of Adam Gase.

Matt’s Week Three Takes – Hoping For A Jets Loss Thursday Night

Matt Marcinao with his thoughts and review of the New York Jets week 3 blowout loss

Covering the Jets in a weekly column after one of their games this season has been rather easy and could almost be a column where I cut and paste my thoughts from my previous column from the week before as almost nothing has changed from the week before. Here are some the same storylines that have come and go each and every week – Sam Darnold has regressed and does not look like a franchise quarterback in this league, the Jets defense has been a mess since the departure of Jamal Adams and have I mentioned before the Adam Gase should have never been hired as the Jets head coach and needs to be fired yesterday?

Matt’s Week Two Takes – Jets Keep Getting Worse

Matthew Marciano with observations on the New York Jets week 2 blowout loss

Watching the Jets play another embarrassing game this week, for their home opener, in which they lost to the San Francisco 49ers 31-13, shows just how bad of a season is upon us as Jets fans.

There are many things to point about this week two loss to the 49ers. First off the 49ers were playing, as the game went on, without some of their star players, such as Quarterback Jimmy Garroppolo, WR George Kittle and DE Nick Bosa. Despite some of their best players not on the field from them, the Niners were able to take care of the Jets, which started with the first play from scrimmage from the Niners, a yard touchdown run from Raheem Mostert (who also got injured later in this game).

New York Jets – The Johnson Bros Need to Go

Matthew Marciano on why the New York Jets need an ownership change…

The Johnson Brothers as owners of the NY Jets just do not get how to run a football team. Let’s face it – as Jets fans we are always frustrated with some aspect of this team. From keeping the same coach well past when they should have been fired, to never addressing free agency needs and bringing top name free agents to the team, to making draft mistake after draft mistake. However, Jets owner Christopher Johnson saying earlier this week that he fully supports embattled Jets head coach Adam Gase and that he is an “offensive mastermind” shows how beyond clueless Jets ownership are with what is really going on and they need to sell this team. It is frustrating that the Jets fans have had to endure for years, especially the past couple of years, with a very mediocre Sam Darnold and one of the worst head coaches in the NFL, Adam Gase.

Matt’s Week One Takes – New York Jets Are Worst Team In NFL

Matthew Marciano with his week 1 takes on the New York Jets…

There are several things that can be taken from the Jets loss to the Buffalo Bills. For one, they still do not have an offense and their quarterback is horrible. Also the team cannot blitz or do anything meaningful on defense. But the most important take on this game if you are a Jets fan is simple. The Jets are going to be the worst team in the NFL this year (they may even match the 1-15 Jets team coached by Rich Kotite) if they played like they did against the Bills.

New York Jets – Make or Break Year for Sam Darnold?

Matthew Marciano on if this is a make or break year for Sam Darnold…

All right Jets fans! We are getting closer to the start of the regular season and of course, just like any season for the Jets there are a lot of questions. For one, will Adam Gase make it through the entire season as head coach if the Jets collapse as the season progresses? Will the defense be as good without disgruntled safety Jamal Adams? How are the Jets going to do it once again, with no core wide receivers or tight ends for Sam Darnold to throw to? Those are all important questions, especially the one about Adam Gase.

The Best & Worst TV Announcers To Call A New York Jets Game

Matthew Marciano on the best and worst announcers to call a New York Jets game…

The NFL season is almost upon us and while we always look forward to seeing the NFL schedules for each team released in the spring, I always like to see if the major networks changed any of their broadcast teams for the year and which announcers call the Jets games each week.

Upon seeing the announced commentator pairings on CBS and FOX, I thought it would be fun to write about the top three commentators you want calling a Jets game and the top three you do not. After seeing who is calling the season opener between the Jets and the Bills, I was certain this article needed to be written.

New York Jets – The Clock is Ticking On Adam Gase

Matthew Marciano on why the clock is ticking for Adam Gase as the New York Jets HC…

The 2020 NFL season better be a good season for NY Jets head coach Adam Gase, or ownership better actually do the right thing and fire a head coach who had no business getting the Jets head coaching job last year. In full disclosure, I was a fan of Mike McCarthy, an established, Super Bowl-winning head coach, who help developed Aaron Rogers into the franchise quarterback he is today, getting the Jets job. If the Jets were looking for a candidate with previous head coaching experience, who would be the best coaching candidate to develop Sam Darnold, it would have been McCarthy. Of course, McCarthy publicly stated he wanted the Jets job and ownership do not hire him and now he is coaching the Cowboys. If he was good enough to develop Dak Prescott as his head coach, why was he not hired to develop Sam Darnold? Another clueless and just plain stupid move by Jets ownership.

New York Jets Special Teams – 2020 Question Marks

Matthew Marciano on the New York Jets special teams heading into 2020…

The New York Jets are getting closer to the start of the 2020 NFL season and all eyes are several key aspects of the team. Questions such as is Sam Darnold really the long-term answer at quarterback for the Jets, can the Jets defense still be as good as they were last season, even without Jamal Adams and lacking depth at the cornerback position? Another key question that remains to be answered is whether or not the Adam Gase was the right hire for the Jets when Mike McCarthy was willing and able to coach the Jets. While all of these questions are important, another question that surrounds the Jets this season is whether or not the Jets will improve or not on Special Teams.

New York Jets – 2020 Record Prediction (Training Camp Edition)

Matthew Marciano lays out his 2020 game by game prediction for the New York Jets…

We are close to the start of another NFL season and with the start of new season for the Jets comes predictions of how the Jets will do this year. There are a lot of story lines for the Jets this season that needs to be answered. Among them will be if head coach Adam Gase is the right coach for the job and whether the offense will improve in year two under Gase.

Other questions surrounding the Jets will be how quarterback Sam Darnold, in his third NFL season will perform this year with what appears to be a depleted receivers corps, even after the Jets signed veteran wide out Chris Hogan.

Plus, while the drama with Jamal Adams is no over since the Jets traded the disgruntled safety to the Seattle Seahawks, the question still remains if the defense will continue to improve without Adams in Defensive Coordinator’s Gregg Williams second year with the Jets. It will also prove to be an interesting story line when Adams and Seahawks play host to the Jets later on in the season during week fourteen.

Here are the predictions for the 2020 NY Jets season and how the Jets will fare in each of their match ups against opposing teams.
