Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets eight straight loss, 24-10 to the Kansas City Chiefs
As we are accustomed to writing on Sundays, the New York Jets lost today. This time it was 24-10 to the Kanas City Chiefs, their eighth straight loss. Rex Ryan is now 23-34 since the beginning of 2011 and has 23 losses by 10 points or more. The Jets were relatively competitive but it never really felt like they were in position to make a move to win the game. Generally, despite a few standout performances it was the same somewhat unprepared, poorly organized and undermanned at certain positions team we have seen all season. The Jets are very much in the mix for the top pick in the NFL Draft, as there aren’t any of signs of a turnaround on the way…

Well, it’s come to this, huh? I guess none of us should be surprised with the fickle and downright crappy nature of most New York Jets fans that a campaign has sprouted up to raise $10,000 (that’s American dollars too) so that they could put up a Fire John Idzik billboard. That’s right, 10 grand for… a John Idzik billboard that nobody will give a crap about. And the insane part is that some people out there are actually donating their money to this! Well, before you open up your wallet and type in your credit card number on their little website to give them your money, do me a favor and read this first.

Dan Marcus on the franchise quarterback myth
Over the last decade the NFL has experienced a perfect storm of factors that have transformed the league into a passing/quarterback-driven league. With the advent of rule changes designed to make the game “safer,” coupled with the rise of fantasy football, the playing field has been slanted and skewed towards the offensive side of the ball, so that it is virtually impossible to win without a top-tier AKA “Franchise Quarterback.”

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio grades New York Jets General Manager John Idzik
If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I’ve continued to lament that a GM needs more than a year and a half to fully implement their plan on a team. However, there’s been incessant talk on Jets GM John Idzik after his press conference yesterday. So, I’m going to grade his drafts, free agent signings, and trades. Here is the scale: A (All-Pro/Quality Starter) equals 4 points, B (Adequate Starter) equals 3 points, C (Contributor) equals 2 points, D (Negative impact) equals 1 point, and F (no impact) equals 0 points. Feel free to chime in in the comments. Let’s get to it.

Joe Caporoso on how the Rex Ryan New York Jets got to this point
New York isn’t usually a market that has patience for sustained losing…or much of anything. Four straight non-playoff or non-winning seasons is usually more than enough to have everybody fed up with a constant variable in the equation of losing. In the case of the New York Jets, that hasn’t fully been the case. This article is a look at how the “Rex Ryan Jets” have reached a new low point in his 5.5 year tenure. The problems go beyond him but many of the most critical reasons the Jets have been a below average football team since a 2010 playoff win over New England are directly correlated to their coach.
