New York Jets Running Backs Grade Sheet (Week 11)

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio grades the New York Jets running backs after Week 11.

Grading Scale

I grade each play on a 1 to 5 scale. Loss of yardage is rated a 0, no gain is rated a 1, a gain of 1-3 yards is rated a 2, gains of 4-6 are rated a 3, gains of 7-9 yards or are rated a 4, and gains of 10+ yards are rated a 5. TDs increase your overall grade by 10 points, and fumbles decrease your score by -5. I do it like this to factor in receptions, reward positive plays accordingly, and penalize negative plays accordingly. The total from the grades of each individual play are then converted to letter grades, with As representing (50 or higher), Bs (39-49), Cs (29-39), Ds (19-29), and Fs (0-18) being given out for total performance). Performance of the offensive line and available running space is also factored in.

New York Jets Week 11 – Linebacker Grades

The Jets had two weeks to prepare for the Buffalo Bills after an impressive win over the New Orleans Saints. Sounds like a formula for success, right? Unfortunately, the team had trouble on both sides of the ball all day long on Sunday. One of the few bright spots was the linebackers, a crew that is often overshadowed by the horrendous play of the New York secondary. Lets take a look at how they faired against the Bills on the road.

New York Jets – Put Away The Pitchforks, The Jury Is Still Out

Joe Caporoso on why New York Jets fans should temporarily put away the pitchforks and stop the massive amounts of panic

Throughout the off-season, the New York Jets began the process of rebuilding their roster. This was a needed process considering their salary cap and roster situation after the 2012 season. Expectations for this year were tempered or at least should have been tempered. The Jets didn’t have the makings of the league’s worst team but even an optimist should have seen the ceiling for this team as hovering around .500 and playing relevant December games.

Initial Reaction: Bad Times Roller Coaster, Bills Crush Jets

Initial reaction to the Jets embarrassing loss to the Bills

The New York Jets continued their bizarre, incredibly frustrating season with a 37-14 whipping at the hands of the Buffalo Bills. This is a team that can still find no measure of consistency and yet because of how weak the AFC is on the back end, remain right in the thick of the playoff race.

TOJ Week 11 NFL Gambling Advice and Picks

Week 11 has arrived and so has my long-awaited picks hot streak! I told you it couldn’t stay that bad forever, and in the last two weeks thinks really started to heat up for me… which probably means I’m do for a massive disappointment and a 1-14 week or something like that.

And yes that’s me puffing out my chest and patting myself on the back. Deal with it! Let’s get on with the show… Continue reading “TOJ Week 11 NFL Gambling Advice and Picks”

Super Fast: “The Reed Option”

Dan Marcus goes Super Fast as the Jets prepare to play the Bills in week 11

Although I think it’s still too early to be having serious playoff discussions (even saying the words makes me feel a bit uncomfortable) however, with the much-ballyhooed signing of former All-Pro Safety and Future Hall of Famer, Ed Reed, the Jets are making a statement to the league and to their fans that they are in fact making a run for the post season. Coming off the bye, the Jets head to Buffalo to take on a scrappy but beaten-up (both physically and emotionally) Bills team and here is everything you need to know heading into Sunday’s tilt:

TOJ Stock Watch: Jets vs. Bills II Edition

Did everybody have a nice bye week? The Jets sure did, just look at the results across the AFC since the last time they’ve played a game. The Dolphins brought the circus to town and are in the middle of a ridiculous hazing scandal which effectively ruined their season, the Titans lost to the winless Jaguars (and then again last night), and the Bills lost in Pittsburgh. And to add to that, the Jets are adding Kellen Winslow, Santonio Holmes, and some guy named Ed Reed to the roster this week. So why does this week’s game in Buffalo scare the hell out of me? Let’s do some buying and selling… Continue reading “TOJ Stock Watch: Jets vs. Bills II Edition”

New York Jets – Revisiting The “Rex-odus”

The New York Jets have made wise decisions on who to let walk from their roster

In the off-season the New York Jets were slammed for their “Rex-odus” of free agents. Lost in the criticism of all the veterans they let walk was the fact that nearly every decision was a wise one, which the numbers through nine games this season bear out. Beyond that, there had been some outrage when the Jets cut ties with a handful of players on their roster earlier this year…again nearly every decision was a wise one. Need proof? Have a look:
