New York Jets – Grading the 2019 Defense

Stephen Russo grades out the New York Jets 2019 defense

For the better part of twenty years, the Jets defense has outpaced the offense. For too long, defensive minded coaches with antiquated styles of game management strolled the sidelines. If you think hard enough, you can hear them saying “Any drive that ends in a kick is a successful one…” Well the tide could finally turn this year, as new Head Coach Adam Gase roams the Jets sidelines with a litany of offensive experience to bring to the table. While the Jets’ offense is shaping up to be an exciting one with Sam Darnold and a myriad of new weapons, what can we expect from a defensive unit that underperformed in 2018? Let’s take a closer look at the defensive unit and their grades as we look ahead to this 2019 season.

New York Jets 2019 Training Camp Preview – The Beginning Of The End?

Joe Caporoso takes a deep dive on the state of the New York Jets organization heading into 2019 training camp

The New York Jets take the field later this week for their 2019 training camp in Florham Park, New Jersey. This has been a dark “era” of Jets football as the post Random Rex AFC Championship Game years have faded into the second longest playoff drought in franchise history and the third longest playoff drought currently in the NFL. 

After being the only team in the NFL to not meet or exceed six wins once in the past three years, the Jets finally took a sledgehammer to the stagnant, ineffective Mike Maccagnan/Todd Bowles regime by canning both of them, hiring Adam Gase as the Head Coach and rebuilding the front office around recently hired GM Joe Douglas. Their roster had a splashy makeover in some areas with the headline additions of Le’Veon Bell, CJ Mosley, Kelechi Osemele and Jamison Crowder while was surprisingly stagnant in other areas like center, cornerback and edge rusher. 

Is 2019 the beginning of the end of this generally miserable era of football or was too much damage done in the past 4 (6? 8?) years to expect a corner to truly be turned this season? Here is what to watch for this August while we all try to figure out the answer…

TOJ Pick Six: Questions for New York Jets Entering Preseason

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.
