Context Stats: Geno Smith and Ryan Fitzpatrick vs The Ravens

Statistics let us remove emotional stimuli and focus on the hard truth of what happens. But we need to place statistics into their environment to gain context and understand what’s really happening.

What Can Jets Learn from Other Turnaround Teams?

David Aitken with a look at how other franchises turned around prolonged stretches of poor play and what the New York Jets can learn from them…

The 2014 New York Jets hit rock bottom. Whoever inherited the team in 2015 was not inheriting a quick fix, despite the cap situation left by John Idzik. This year has been a crash back to earth to just how far the Jets still have to go. Below are a few examples of teams that were in a position similar to the Jets in one way or another fairly recently, and how they’ve turned it around.
