Will The “New” 4-2-5 Defense Bring Ground And Pound Back?

As NFL offenses turn to a spread concept and use of the zone read option defenses have been trying to figure out a way to combat it. A lot of teams have adopted the 4-2-5 (four down lineman, two linebackers, and either three safeties: one of which is a small version of a linebacker, and… Read more

NY Jets Tight End Dilemma

The New York Jets will be looking to improve their offensive skill positions this offseason which will include an upgrade at tight end. Currently the team has two tight ends on their active roster, the inexperienced Zach Sudfeld and Chris Pantale, leaving lots of uncertainty at the position.

2014 NFL Draft: Running Back Options For NY Jets

The Jets had two consistent running backs this year, but they are who they are.  Combined, they rushed for 1,530 yards on the season.  LeSean McCoy had more yards (1,607 yards) by himself.  Now that’s not a slight on the running backs, as it is just as much on the offensive line as the backs.  Bilal Powell is… Read more

2014 NFL Draft: Top Wide Receiver Prospects

1. Sammy Watkins – Clemson (6’1″ 205 lbs): Watkins is far and away the most dynamic wide receiver in this year’s draft.  His ability to turn any play into a touchdown is what teams will be enamored with, more than his route running ability.  He plays very physical at only 6’1″ and has outstanding hands… Read more

1.  Jace Amaro- Texas Tech (6’5″ 260lbs)  Amaro is the best overall tight end in the draft.  His size and strength make it hard for linebackers to stay with him and even harder for safeties to be physical with him.  He has the most reliable hands at the position for this draft.  He needs to… Read more

2014 NY Jets Coaching Staff – Who Should Stay?

Woody Johnson and John Idzik informed the team that Rex Ryan will be back as the head coach of the New York Jets next season.  It remains to be seen if they will extend his contract or play out the last year of Ryan’s current deal (which is hardly ever done in the NFL).  It… Read more

Geno Smith Bounces Back…Now Needs to Show Progress

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… Read more

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

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… Read more
