If you are familar with TOJ, you know that Dalbin Osorio (legend of the game) has had a weekly mailbag column answering questions from Twitter. He has officially passed the reins to myself and I will be answering Twitter questions all season. If you have ever have a question, tweet at me @szantz. Now onto the fun stuff heading into Packers week.
Greg Armstrong answers your New York Jets twitter questions for week one…
Football is BACK (I had to pinch myself and tried not to get too excited until there was actually football on my tv). We made it everyone. Throughout the year, I’ll be putting out the bat signal for questions on twitter every Tuesday or Wednesday and we’ll do this pick six every week. Thank you to all that submitted questions. (more…)
Dalbin Osorio with TOJ Pick Six of questions facing the New York Jets heading into August…
You smell that, Jets fans? That is most definitely the smell of optimism and football returning, as we have reached the two-weeks-away-from-the-Green-&-White-Scrimmage portion of the off-season. We have a new coach that’s been here for about six months, and a new general manager that’s only been here for what feels like six days. It’s year two of Sam Darnold, with an influx of talent on both sides of the ball, and a puncher’s chance of ending a too-long playoff drought. There’s still a few questions this team needs answered so, like a Pat Mahomes errant cross body throw that lands in the arms of Jamal Adams in January to seal a playoff win, let’s take this pick six to the house.
Dalbin Osorio with six prospective trades the New York Jets could make tonight
Mike Maccagnan has not been hesitant to make trades around and during the NFL Draft, whether it’s for veteran reinforcements (Ryan Clady) or star players (Brandon Marshall). This year, there seems to be an abundance of guys rumored to be on the block. With the Jets having limited draft capital, it seems like they won’t be getting involved. However, Macchiato Mike would be wise to circle back to teams he has traded with to both add draft capital and/or more talent to a team that is still a few players away from competing for a playoff spot. Here are 6 trades the Jets could make this weekend with partners they’ve had in the past under Mike Maccagnan, as well as who i’d take with the picks received using Matt Miller’s mock draft from this morning as a guide:
Dalbin Osorio with six free agents connected to the current New York Jets coaching staff they could target
The Pick Six is back like we re-signed Ryan Fitzpatrick, as we turn our attention to arguably the most important off-season for the New York Jets. Faster than Paulie can lose a round to me in What’s Your Point, the beginning of the league year is a week away. Armed with almost $100M in cap space, and a few difference makers set to potentially hit the market, the New York Jets need to be in on just about everybody as they try to end playoff drought that’s nearing TEN seasons. Instead of giving you only guys that I would target overall, I wanted to give you a list of guys the team can realistically target that have a connection to the current coaching staff. Let’s do what Sam Darnold shouldn’t do on his first snap next season, and return this pick six:
Dalbin Osorio with a pick six of potential HC replacements for Todd Bowles…
With the New York Jets currently sitting at 3-5, and another season likely not ending in a playoff appearance, this fanbase will most likely start looking towards the off-season. Armed with 3 top 100 picks and $100M in cap space, as well as their presumptive franchise QB in Sam Darnold entering year 2, this is set to become one of the more attractive jobs for potential head coaches should the team decide to move on from Head Coach Todd Bowles. Here are six candidates I would look towards, plus a prediction at the bottom on who I think coaches Gang Green next year.
Dalbin Osorio with a pick six of matchups to watch for in Jets vs. Lions…
We have finally made it Jets fans! After an eventful offseason, we are now a few hours away from kicking things off officially in the Sam Darnold Era. Head Coach Todd Bowles said that the Jets are going up to Detroit to win a game, and these are six things i’ll be looking for as the team aims to do exactly that in week one.
Dalbin Osorio with six potential trade targets for the New York Jets at edge rusher…
Fresh off the Teddy Bridgewater trade, the New York Jets are now armed with 3 top 100 picks in next year’s NFL Draft. With their franchise QB in tow, it is now time for Mike Maccagnan o turn their eyes towards filling the last major need this team has, and that is an edge rusher.
Some will argue that the Jets need a left tackle:, they do not seeing as how Kelvin Beachum is the starter with one year left under contract and has been fine when healthy. An injury can change that, but it’s not necessarily a need right now. Others will say that the team should prepare for life after James Carpenter but next year’s free agent offensive line class includes guards Mike Iupati, Andy Levitre, and Jonathan Cooper: I say that to say that it’s possible the Jets bring Carpenter back for one year because he’d be a top four guard available.
With that in mind, what if the team decides they don’t want to wait until next year to try and target Nick Bosa, Clelin Ferrell, or Josh Allen? These are six guys they can try and use their draft capital to acquire now to fill that long-unfilled need.
Dalbin Osorio with a TOJ Pick Six of 2018 NFL Draft thoughts for the New York Jets
We have finally made it to arguably the most important draft week of the last decade for the New York Football Jets. The Jets moved up to the third spot in the NFL Draft about a month ago, with their eyes on finally drafting a franchise QB. While there is some skepticism over who Jets General Manager Mike Maccagnan will pick, the odds are lined up for Jets fans to be very happy. That, coupled with an impactful offseason filled with younger additions, has Jets fans more excited than usual for the upcoming season. Here are six things I’m thinking as we enter this very important week.
Dalbin Osorio with a TOJ Pick Six preview of Jets vs Lions
We are back with this week’s Pick Six; seeing as how Ryan Fitzpatrick continued his tradition of attempting to throw one of these a game despite being in another uniform, it seemed apropos to bring this one back as we preview the New York Jets versus the Detroit Lions. Let’s go passengers!
