The NFL Draft is how you build a sustainable winner. The New York Jets have not gotten the memo, as they have strung a prolonged stretch of incompetence across three different General Managers, which has included an over emphasis on defense and particularly interior defensive linemen along with historic head scratchers like taking Christian Hackenberg in the 2nd round. Why haven’t the Jets been able to break through draft weekend and how do they fix it in the future? Joe Caporoso and Connor Rogers go through every Jets draft class since 2011 to get their answers and are joined by Matt Miller of Bleacher Report for an extensive discussion filled with behind the scenes stories and a preview of their potential approach to 2020 under Joe Douglas…

Episode 3 of Badlands: Joe Caporoso, Connor Rogers and Dalbin Osorio talk everything about the missed opportunity of the New York Jets 2015 season and how it ruined the rest of the Mike Maccagnan/Todd Bowles era…

The 2015 season was a rare anomaly for the Jets, as a collection of newly acquired veterans positioned the team for a deep playoff run in a weaker than usual AFC. Yet, a narrow loss in New England, a no show against TJ Yates and a week 17 choke in Buffalo kept the Jets on the outside looking in at 10-6. How big of a missed opportunity was this season and how did its results negatively impact the rest of the Mike Maccagnan/Todd Bowles era? Joe Caporoso and Connor Rogers are joined by long time co-host Dalbin Osorio for a three man, 40 minute show breaking it all down…

Episode 2 of Badlands: Joe Caporoso and Connor Rogers are joined by Mike Tanier of the Bleacher Report to discuss the New York Jets history of half measure decisions, lack of self scouting and how their management structure compares to the rest of the NFL

SIGN UP HERE

From forcing a newly hired GM to work with Rex Ryan to forcing a newly hired HC to work with Mike Maccagnan, the Jets have developed a habit of setting up arranged marriages and half measures when they want to make changes. They also have an unusual reporting structure where both the GM and HC report directly to the owner, regularly creating competing agendas. How has this arrangement impacted the team’s performance, self scouting and decision making? Joe and Connor are joined by Mike Tanier of the Bleacher Report to dive in further…
