Badlands Initial Reaction! – Joe and Connor talk Justin Fields…
Dalbin Osorio wrote his initial reaction to Jets vs. Dolphins about 2 hours before kickoff. It held up well!
On one sideline stood Adam Gase who, after getting former Jets General Manager Mike Maccagnan fired, oversaw the exodus of former All-Pro LeVeon Bell and defensive cornerstone Safety Jamal Adams. He’s, also, gutted QB Sam Darnold of any confidence he had left all while tailoring his offense around WR Chris Hogan and RB Frank Gore. If there is a deity, he only has 11 weeks left as the Jets Head Coach.
Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 0-5
The New York Jets had another Gase Game today.
They did not score a first half touchdown. They were down double digits at halftime. They scored one total touchdown when the game was in question and lost by multiple possessions. They are now 0-5 and one third of the way to a very achievable 0-16 record.

Fire the entire coaching staff.
The Jets lost handily to a team more decimated by injuries than them and to a third string quarterback, making his first career start…on the road…on a short week. If it wasn’t for the run of Sam Darnold’s life and a gimme pick six, the Jets lose this game by about 20 points. As currently constructed, 0-16 is on the table for this team. Their offense cannot score more than one touchdown per game. Their quarterback can’t crack a YPA of 6. Their defense can’t tackle or avoid getting personal fouls every series. They have the worst coaching staff in the NFL with a weak roster curated to their “strengths.”
If they don’t fire Adam Gase tomorrow, the Jets deserve every bit of the potential 0-16 embarrassment that may be on the way…
Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to another New York Jets blowout loss, this time to the Indianapolis Colts
For the second week in a row, I have the luxury of writing this article halfway through the fourth quarter. I could have started it earlier. The Jets are going to lose by more than 20 points (again). The Jets are going to score less than 20 points (again). The Jets season is over in September (again). The only silver lining is renewed rumors of Adam Gase potentially being fired in season if he can’t beat the hobbled, 0-3 Denver Broncos this Thursday Night (GO DENVER, BABY).
Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to another New York Jets blowout loss, this time to the San Francisco 49ers
I am writing this midway through the fourth quarter as the New York Jets trail 31-6 to the San Francisco 49ers. There may be a few more meaningless stats and developments but today was yet another game that was over in the first half. It was another game the Jets offense did nothing. It was another game their defense looked slow and unprepared. Injuries aren’t an excuse, the 49ers had more (No Jimmy G, No Bosa, No Ford, No Sherman, No Kittle, No Deebo). Playing against a good defense isn’t an excuse, as that is part of playing in the NFL. The Jets are historically incompetent thus far this season and have looked every bit of being the worst team in the NFL…by a wide margin.
Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets
The New York Jets decided continuity was important for quarterback Sam Darnold heading into year three, at least when it came to coaching. Head Coach Adam Gase was brought back as the de facto Offensive Coordinator, Dowell Loggains was brought back as the Offensive Coordinator but as the de facto Quarterbacks Coach, a position the Jets left officially vacant again. They were going to run the same system and trust more time would make it better and hope in year five that Gase and his system would finally click together and work wonders for Darnold…
Stephen Zantz with initial reaction to the New York Jets signing WR Chris Hogan
It’s no secret the Jets have a depth problem at the WR position. A few guys are hurt and there is a ton of inexperience in the WR room. Joe Douglas addressed this problem by signing Chris Hogan on Sunday morning. I suggested the Jets should sign Hogan back in July to get another veteran in the room. Let’s take a deep dive as to what exactly the Jets are getting in Hogan.
Dalbin Osorio with initial reaction to the New York Jets trading Jamal Adams
Yesterday was really the last straw, huh? You could kind of see the writing on the wall coming with Jamal Adams, what with the Jets all-pro safety just going scorched earth on his head coach and general manager: lets not forget this is the same coach he gave a vote of confidence to at the end of the season, after he threw a tantrum because his general manager had the unmitigated gall to answer the phone when teams recognized his talent and wanted to trade for him. We may never know what really happened to lead the Jets to this point, today, where on July 25th they sent their best draft pick since Darrelle Revis packing.
Dalbin Osorio with initial reaction to the New York Jets signing DB Logan Ryan
After trading a sixth rounder for former 2nd rounder Quincy Wilson, signing Pierre Desir, re-signing Brian Poole, and drafting UVA standout Bryce Hall you’d think the work in the cornerback room for the Jets was done. Joe Douglas laughs at your assumptions, as its been reported that the New York Jets are signing former Titans Cornerback Logan Ryan.
