The New York Jets Big Man Report – Week 6 – TOJ

Mike Nolan grading and discussing the New York Jets’ offensive line. Here is his Week 6 look at their performance and a preview for Week 7.

Each week I will be reviewing the coaches’ tape from the previous week’s game and grading out the performance of the New York Jets Offensive Linemen.

New York Jets – The Coples Conundrum

Frank Giasone on the struggles of New York Jets defensive lineman/outside linebacker Quinton Coples

There have been a lot of questions and concerns surrounding New York Jets OLB/DE Quinton Coples this season, as expectations for a breakout second year have been tempered following a slow start for the former first round pick out of UNC.

The last time we saw the “real” Quinton Coples, he was manhandling Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert in the preseason, forcing a fumble as he threw the quarterback to the MetLife turf. That was the same play, in fact, where we saw Coples go down with a hairline fracture in his ankle.

I’d be kidding myself if I said I had a definitive answer to what has sent Coples seemingly into the Witness Protection Program. Truth is, this early season “slump” is likely a combination of a number of factors. But I wanted to take a closer look to try and pinpoint what issues specifically are contributing to a complete lack of production.

New York Jets – Depth Chart Movement

Injuries are mounting around the NFL, along with former fringe players exceeding expectations and former starters losing their jobs. The depth chart movement around the league is contagious as the second half of the season is quickly approaching. Practice squad players being signed to active rosters will have a chance to showcase their talent, while depth player’s roles increase as the starters endurance wears down. Lets take a look at some vital movements which have shaped the Jets depth chart for their week seven match up against the Patriots.

New York Jets – Thoughts On Home Field Advantage

Dan Marcus with thoughts on the New York Jets lack of a home field advantage

Alright Jets fans, it’s time to address something that has been bugging me for quite some time and finally came to a head last week. For the longest time, I heard that the Jets lacked a real “home field advantage” because they were playing in someone else’s building with bearing the name “Giants Stadium.” Naturally when the Jets moved across the parking lot to the giant gray slinky now known as Metlife Stadium, one would think that things would presumably be different. In the inaugural season of then “New Meadowlands Stadium,” the Jets brass were playing the “this is our house” mantra up to the “nth” degree and sure the the first Monday night game against the Ravens and the match-up against the Patriots the subsequent week were pretty full and reasonably loud but things have been on a precipitous decline ever since.

TOJ Stock Watch: Patriots Week

It’s Patriots week! Sure, the New York Jets are coming off a terrible performance just a week ago at home against Pittsburgh to drop them to 3-3, but all Jets fans should be excited for Patriots week. Sure, all the stats and trends point towards the Pats blowing the Jets out, as they always seem to do in the second matchup of the season (last year involved the infamous “buttfumble” on Thanksgiving), but there is reason for hope this week, as the extremely banged up Patriots roll into the Meadowlands. A Jets win would bring them to within one game of the division lead, and the playoffs would start to look like a legit possibility. Let’s get to buying and selling all things Jets as we look forward to Sunday… Continue reading “TOJ Stock Watch: Patriots Week”

TOJ – New York Jets Know Your Opponent Week 7 (New England Patriots)

Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio breaks down the New York Jets Week 7 opponent on this week’s Know Your Opponent.

The New York Jets fell right into the trap game, and were beaten by the previously winless Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday 19-6. No rest for the weary, as they now welcome Tom Brady and the New England Patriots into MetLife for a game with huge division implications. The Jets need a win to go to 2-1 in the division and keep any chance they have of winning it this year alive. A sweep for the hated Patriots will put the Jets essentially 4 games back of them with 9 left to play, and will force the Jets to need to finish with an outright better record than New England in order to win the division and secure a home playoff game. Let’s become reacquainted with the New York Jets rival in Week 7’s version of Know Your Opponent
