It’s Friday and we’ve all had almost a full week to soak in and analyze that disaster of a game last week in Tennessee. This week our boys in green are traveling down to Atlanta for a primetime game against the Falcons in a game in which they’re double digit underdogs. Yikes. Let’s get to buying and selling and seeing what we can look forward to on Monday night Continue reading “TOJ Stock Watch – Week 5 Edition”
Buying and Selling all things New York Jets as they head into Week 4 against the Tennessee Titans
Week 4 is upon us and the Jets sit at 0-3 with Rex Ryan on the hot seat. As expected, the circus remains in Florham Park and things couldn’t look worse for Gang Green…. Wait, no, that isn’t right at all. That is what the media wanted to be writing this point in the season, but instead they’ve all been served a turd sandwich as Rex Ryan and his Jets currently sit at 2-1 and were a play or two away from turning that L into a W up in Foxboro. This week our boys in green travel to Tennessee to take on another surprise 2-1 team in what is sure to be a close — and winnable — game. Let’s do some stock watching! Continue reading “TOJ Stock Watch: New York Jets Week 4 Edition”
Mike Donnelly with a Turn On The Jets Stock Watch – Buying and Selling New York Jets, heading into Week 3
After a disappointing 3-point loss to the New England Patriots last Thursday, the New York Jets are facing an early season “must win” against the Buffalo Bills this week if they’re going to have any hope of putting together a winning season. This is a winnable game at home against a team very much in the same boat as them, with a rookie quarterback and a solid defense. In fact, it’s nearly the same exact defense since it’s being coached by Rex Ryan’s pupil, Mike Pettine. Let’s jump right in to this week’s Stock Watch and do some buying and selling as we prepare for week 3. Continue reading “Turn On The Jets Stock Watch – Week 3 Edition”
Mike Donnelly with a Turn On The Jets Stock Watch previewing Jets vs. Patriots tonight
Just like the New York Jets as a team only had a brief time to reflect on the Tampa Bay game before moving on to Patriots Week, we here at TOJ were in the same boat. The week 1 victory was awesome, and allowed Jets fans to rub it in the faces of all the “experts” who predicted 42-0 losses and 0-16 seasons, but now it is time to look ahead to bigger and better things. The Patriots are perhaps more vulnerable than we’ve seen them in the past decade with a ton of injuries, and they could be ripe for an upset. Today I’ll be buying and selling what we saw in the first game of the season and what we can expect tonight against Tom Brady and co. Continue reading “Turn On The Jets Stock Watch – Jets/Patriots Gameday Edition”
Mike Donnely with a Turn On The Jets Stock Watch previewing the 2013 New York Jets Season
The New York Jets 2013 season is still three days from kicking off, but to hear the experts tell it, the season is already over. The Jets are the worst team in the league, there’s no hope, they probably shouldn’t even bother to show up on Sundays. They should just forfeit each game and spare the world three hours of having to watch the worst football team ever assembled. We’ve heard it all, but I don’t necessarily believe all that fuss. In my opinion, the Jets have actually improved over the 6-10 team they fielded a year ago, and I don’t really understand where all the “LOL, Jets will draft Clowney” stuff comes from. They’ve added a real offensive coordinator, some capable running backs, Santonio Holmes is back, and the defense has the potential to be excellent. Continue reading “Turn On The Jets Stock Watch: New York Jets Season Preview Edition”
Mike Donnelly with a Turn On The Jets Stock Watch on the New York Jets heading into week 2 of the pre-season
As the Jets head into their second preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, there are plenty of issues surrounding the team. First and foremost is obviously the quarterback situation, but that is far from the only position battle that will determine the success of the 2013 Jets. Let’s go ahead and do some more buying and selling of all things Jets. Continue reading “Turn On The Jets Stock Watch – Preseason Week 2”
Mike Donnelly with a Turn On The Jets Stock Watch previewing the New York Jets pre-season
Ahh, the start of NFL football, it is the most wonderful time of the year! Like little kids patiently waiting on Christmas Eve to open presents the next morning, New York Jets fans everywhere are giddy with anticipation as we prepare ourselves to open up our presents in a mere few hours and see what Santa brought us this football season. Will we open some shiny boxes and find our very own diamond in the rough like Victor Cruz this preseason (Ryan Spadola?), or will we get more lumps of Gholston (Vlad Ducasse)? Will Geno Smith shine as the latest in a long line of possible savior quarterbacks? Or will Mark Sanchez beat him out and try to bounce back from a disastrous 2012?
Mike Donnelly projects the fantasy football value of the New York Jets skill position players
June has arrived and before we know it, we’ll be breaking down mini-camp, then training camp and then the preseason. We’ll turn around and then the Bucs will be in town to kick off the 2013 season with their hopefully less than 100% healthy star cornerback and we’ll all rejoice that another football season has arrived. But almost as importantly, while all these things are going on, it means that fantasy football season has arrived, and it is never too early to start preparing so you can earn bragging rights and humiliate your friends on the fantasy gridiron. Today we are going to take a look at the roster and see which New York Jets are going to be worth taking a look at come draft day, and which are, umm, not.
Mike Donnelly with a Turn On The Jets Stock Watch reviewing the New York Jets roster outside of the quarterback position
This may come as a surprise to many people out there, but there are going to be 51 other players on this team come September that are not named Geno Smith or Mark Sanchez. I know, I know, that seems crazy based on the media coverage of this team, but believe me, it is true. And not only that, but those 51 players are going to have a major impact on the fate of the 2013 Jets. Of course, the way the roster looks today won’t be the way it looks when the fourth preseason game comes to a close, but we do have a pretty good idea of where things stand. Let’s go ahead and buy and sell some slightly under-the-radar Jets positions and players.
Mike Donnelly with a Stock Watch on how the New York Jets should approach the NFL Draft
Now that the free agency period has cooled down, we have a better idea of what the Jets roster will look like heading into the draft. John Idzik has done a solid job cheaply plugging a few holes so that the team won’t be forced to address any specific position when they’re on the clock come draft day. But that’s not to say that the roster is set across the board. Let’s take a look at some of the changes the team made at a few positions — and the specific players playing those positions — and what roles they will play in John Idzik’s decision making process during the 2013 draft.
