Initial Reaction – Ugly Wins Are Wins Too, Jets Beat Dolphins 22-21 At Buzzer

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 22-21 win over the Miami Dolphins

The New York Jets earned their first AFC East victory of the 2019 season today with a 22-21 win over the Miami Dolphins. Sam Ficken hit a 44 yard field goal as time expired in a win that was far from pretty but was a needed win for their young quarterback, Sam Darnold. They moved their 2019 record to 5-8 and will now face off with arguably the best team in the NFL, the Baltimore Ravens, on the road this Thursday night…

New York Jets Deep Dive – The Black Hole

Joe Caporoso on the limitations the New York Jets are facing over the next 20 games as they approach becoming the football version of the New York Knicks

There are two sports teams I am fans of: the New York Jets and the New York Knicks (fun!). When I was younger, not married, not a father and not working in sports full time, I had a companion site for this one “Turn On The Knicks.” It stuck around for a few years but ultimately fizzled out when I couldn’t put the necessary time into it and couldn’t physically stomach covering them because of their prolonged incompetence and hopelessness. I still love basketball and consider myself a Knicks fan but apathy has long set in. 

As for the Jets? For a variety of reasons this hasn’t happened yet (I like football more and I am better at talking football than basketball) but for the first time since I’ve been “covering” the team, they are entering the Knicks stratosphere of prolonged incompetence and hopelessness. The black hole of perpetual losing propped up by weak willed excuses and increasing profits for owners who don’t need to win to make money.

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 1st & 10 – The (Previously) Winless Bengals?

Stephen Russo goes 1st and 10 on the New York Jets loss to the Cincinnati Bengals

1st…

They certainly have a way, don’t they? They build you up. They give you hope. They make you think it’s possible. Then it all comes crashing down before your eyes as Andy Dalton and Carlos Dunlap of the 0-11 Bengals tear them to shreds and ruin any last bit of promise this awful season had. It takes a true masochist to be a Jets fan. And this season has tested everyone’s pain threshold.

Following the season’s undoubted best performance against Oakland last Sunday, every single problem the Jets were somehow able to mask the last three games came back in an ugly way. Adam Gase forgot how to call plays and refused to make any adjustments. The offensive line was unable to block and seemed to be flagged every other play. The Jets defensive line that has played well in recent weeks couldn’t so much as sniff Andy Dalton.

New York Jets Mock Draft 2.0 – December Edition

Greg Armstrong with a seven round mock draft for the New York Jets

We’re heading into the last quarter of the season with the Jets have more holes to fill on the roster than stable positions. It’s been a long tumultuous season filled with some ups but mostly downs. Joe Douglas has his work cut out for him and he needs to hit on a high rate of players not only in free agency, but complementing a good free agency period with a very good draft. I took a stab at filling some needs for the 2020 Jets. (draft done with TDN Mock Simulator with their TDN predictive board). (more…)

Initial Reaction – They Are Who We Thought They Were, Jets Throttled By 0-11 Bengals

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 22-6 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, their most embarrassing loss of the season

You wanted to believe it, didn’t you? The Jets had turned a corner over the past three weeks. Early season missteps aside, they found their stride. The Jets just might have found the exception to the rule when it came to giving a Head Coach a second chance with zero years in between jobs leading a team. Sam Darnold was on a trajectory to a monster finish to the season and found the perfect pairing with this staff. The locker room was different after weathering early season problems. Gregg Williams could do no wrong on defense. The streak, the real streak was ready to happen. 5-7. 6-7. Five wins in a row. A meaningful game in primetime against Baltimore. A potential .500 or better finish? You started looking up long shot playoff scenarios…

….You forgot a few unpleasant realities, which you had your faced rubbed into today when the 0-11 Cincinnati Bengals throttled the New York Jets 22-6 to drop their record to 4-8.

New York Jets 1st & 10 – Big Things vs. Oakland

Stephen Russo goes 1st and 10 on the New York Jets big win over the Oakland Raiders

1st…

This was the statement win the Jets needed. The Jets, for the moment, somewhat solidified the shaky ground they have found themselves on. They beat a quality opponent, top to bottom, in a dominant fashion.

The Oakland Raiders came into Sunday on a three-game winning streak, with a formidable running game and Derek Carr in the midst of a career year, and the Jets wiped the floor with them. The Raiders jumped out to a 3-0 lead on their first drive and didn’t come close to the end zone after that.
