Breaking Down Geno Smith’s 4 Turnovers

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… Read more

Valuing Third Round Draft Picks

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… Read more

Monday Morning Thoughts

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… Read more

The Day After…

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… Read more

GM John Idzik Brings NY Jets A Class Approach

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… Read more

Monday Morning NY Jets Thoughts

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… Read more

Monday Morning Thoughts

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… Read more

Monday Morning Thoughts

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… Read more

Joe McKnight’s Head Injury May be Worse than You Think

Joe McKnight has had his issues of staying healthy over the course of his brief three-year career.  His first training camp, McKnight failed to come into camp in shape and thus, failed his physical.  After he passed, he quickly became one of the better kick return specialists in the NFL, returning 2 for touchdowns (100… Read more

“Out for the Season” Words Coaches To Often Hear: The NFL Should Consider Changes To Offseason Workouts

With all 32 teams in full swing at training camp, it seems the injury bug has plagued just about every team.  These injuries aren’t all small, temporary day-to-day injuries but season ending injuries.  This year more than any other I could think of, the amount of ACL tears, and leg injuries in general has skyrocketed… Read more

Pro-Geno? Pro-Mark? How About Pro-Jets?

The social media realm that involves JetNation has been split 50-50 over who should start at the quarterback position between Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith.  In fact, there have been arguments and insults thrown out by fans, to fans who support one way or another.  My question is this…Why not just wait until coaches have… Read more

Things We Don’t Hear Enough About The NFL And Its Players

All that is being talked about in the NFL right now is players who have tainted the image of the league.  Between the Aaron Hernandez story and the fact that over 30 players have been arrested since the Super Bowl, the media hasn’t taken any time to show stories of the players who are doing… Read more
