One of the surprises from training camp was the play of offensive lineman Vladimir Ducasse.  He was selected by the Jets in the 2nd round of the 2010 NFL draft and he was very inconsistent in his first two seasons.  He moved around from tackle to guard and struggled, especially with the mental aspects of […]

Fixing what is broken is easier to do after a win.  The Jets beat the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, but there is no shortage of “things to be fixed”.  Penalties are at the top of that list, as the Jets set a team record with 20 penalties on Sunday.  It is hard to win a […]

After a great week one victory the New York Jets head on the road to play their division rivals the New England Patriots this Thursday night.  There are certainly lots of positives to build on given the team’s latest win with the play of quarterback Geno Smith being front and center but one hole seems […]
