New York Jets Top Five – Real Time Edition

Joe Belic goes REAL TIME on the New York Jets heading into Thursday Night Football

Gang Green got the win on a Ficken last-second field goal in a seemingly meaningless game and Jets Twitter was once again polarized.  Many fans insisted wins were more consequential while countless advocates clamored for the importance of a high draft pick. With Bell out—and bowling one heck of a game—some “discussed” his role in this offense while others contemplated the emergence of a certain quarterback in Tennessee.  It didn’t stop there, as Sam Darnold himself was questioned, and enthusiasts debated his legitimacy as a franchise quarterback.  


New York Jets Top Five – The Running Game Is Broken

Joe Belic on the New York Jets extended running game problems

The rekindled love affair with Adam Gase is back on the fritz.  Gase, who after a three-game winning streak was welcomed back by many with open arms, has once again been relegated to spending nights on the couch.  I can’t blame anybody for putting Gase in the dog house either. The rollercoaster ride, characteristic of many Jets seasons, has been tough to bear, and this latest precipitous plummet into the abyss—against an 0-11 Bengals team—had the fanbase sick and firmly clenching their vomit bags all the way down. 


New York Jets Top Five – Five Round Mock Draft

What the Jets do in free agency will impact how they approach the draft, but with Gang Green holding the 5th spot—at the moment—I thought it was fitting to deliver my first mock draft (5 Rounds) in this week’s “Joe Jet 5.”

Operation Tank Season is in full effect—whether the Jets coaching staff accepts it or not—and it’s time to start evaluating players for the upcoming 2020 NFL draft.  In this week’s “Joe Jet 5,” I list some players the Jets should target in their pursuit to get the team back on course.

Just two short weeks ago, it seemed unrealistic to think the Jets had a chance to beat New England. Well, our young gunslinger is back, and hope is still alive.  While it won’t be an easy feat, in this week’s “Joe Jet 5,” I breakdown what it will take to bring down the Pats.  


New York Jets Roster Building – Recent Draft Approach Problems

Joe Belic on the New York Jets recent problems with NFL Draft approach and roster building

The Jets are 0-4, and most fans have already scoured mock drafts to gauge who’ll be available when Gang Green picks—most likely in the top 10 again for the sixth time in eight years. I have always been an advocate of selecting the best player available. It’s a strategy that I thought seemed obvious, as it minimized risk and ensured a higher probability of choosing a viable player.  However, in the last couple of seasons, I noticed a change in myself, my philosophy, and the way I would encourage teams to approach the selection process.
