Geno Smith Bounces Back…Now Needs to Show Progress

December 9, 2013

Geno Smith had a nice bounce back game from his three-game slump.  He threw some very nice balls to convert pivotal 3rd downs and keep the offense moving.  The offense picked up the defense yesterday by scoring 30 points (and a touchdown on special teams punt block), after combining for a total of 20 points […]

Geno’s Not Entirely to Blame: A Look at the Decline of the Offensive Line

November 27, 2013

Geno Smith has been far from stellar.  He has 10 turnovers and only 1 touchdown in his past 7 games.  He has struggled to read defenses and has seemed “shell-shocked” quite often.  A large reason for his poor decision making is the collapse of an offensive line that had looked like such a promising group […]

Breaking Down Geno Smith’s 4 Turnovers

November 18, 2013

The Jets went into Buffalo following the bye week and it appeared as though no one told the players. The Jets came out flat and played poorly in virtually every facet of the game. The defensive line lacked the pressure that they have been getting for the past nine games, the linebackers played poorly, and […]

Valuing Third Round Draft Picks

October 22, 2013

In a recent episode of JetNation Radio (October 15th) I heard my colleague Dennis Agapito talking about the success of the third round draft picks across the league.  It got me thinking that I should look into the past five years draft classes and point out some of the players who are making an impact […]

Monday Morning Thoughts

October 21, 2013

The Jets pulled out a 30-27 overtime victory against the division-rival New England Patriots.  It was nice to see the stands packed and loud as ever.  The Jets controlled the ball for nearly 47 minutes in this game, which is one of the keys to beating a Tom Brady-led team. OFFENSE Game Ball: Chris Ivory- 34 […]

The Day After…

October 8, 2013

The Jets played an all-around solid game in a tough environment in the Georgia Dome last night.  The late 4th quarter comeback led by rookie QB Geno Smith resulted in the game-winning field goal by Nick Folk.  It was an emotional victory and another step in the right direction for a young team. OFFENSE Game […]

GM John Idzik Brings NY Jets A Class Approach

October 7, 2013

For some time the New York Jets have been perceived as a second rate organization which lacks the ability to handle the day-to-day issues which surround an NFL franchise. Last season the team couldn’t shake the “circus” moniker as they seemed to spiral out of control finishing 6-10, with critical comments from players about the […]

Monday Morning NY Jets Thoughts

September 23, 2013

The Jets won a close game, 27-20, a game that should have been a blowout due to the dominating Jets defense for three quarters of the game.  The Jets set a team record with 20 penalties for over 150 yards and somehow still won the ballgame.  The offense started off hot before fizzling out in […]

Monday Morning Thoughts

September 16, 2013

I decided to wait a few days, watch the game again prior to writing this editorial.  The Jets lost a close game 13-10 in tough conditions, in a tough environment in Foxboro.  They had several opportunities to take advantage of a rarely stagnant Patriots offense and didn’t capitalize. Offense Game Ball: Chris Ivory: 12 carries, 52 […]

Monday Morning Thoughts

September 9, 2013

This will be my weekly spot for JetNation this season.  I don’t want to call it a “Monday Morning Quarterback” editorial because it won’t be a total critique of the game, but rather an evaluation of all phases of the Jets game every week. OFFENSE Game Ball: Geno Smith- 24/38 256 yards 1 TD, 1 […]
