New York Jets Flight Connections 7/1/22

Photo by Rich Schultz/ Bringing your daily links to the NFL’s New York Jets Good morning, Gang Green Nation. I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. While PFF has Zach Wilson’s chances of being a mid-tier quarterback at practically zero, everyone in the Jets building seemingly sees things the opposite way. That of course, should surprise no one. But one interesting tidbit is how quickly Robert Saleh backed off of the Mike White hype after bringing controversy to the two QBs last season. If anyone remembers, White had a few excellent games in which he...

Pre-Training Camp 53 Man Projection

Pre-Training Camp 53 Man Projection

Photo by Bryan Bennett/ It’s that time of year again friends. A time where we are forced to acknowledge interests outside of our beloved Jets. The news is sparse. In fact there is rarely any good news in these times so no news is good news. I like to take this time to really dive into the roster and siphon out what our week one 53 man roster might look like. Practice Squad Potential Conor McDermott - Besides being our best TE last year, McDermott was forced to be our primary backup. I don’t think that roles suits him. He knows the system, so he is...

Jets Podcast: The Mike Tannenbaum Era

Photo by Jeff Zelevansky/ Today’s podcast is the second chapter in a five part series on recent Jets general managers. Our first episode yesterday looked at the legacy of Terry Bradway. Today we move on to Mike Tannenbaum. Tannenbaum left a complicated Jets legacy. He built the strongest Jets teams of the 21 century, a couple of which came a bounce or two from the Super Bowl. He also made missteps along the way. These missteps likely short circuited a golden age of Jets football and put us on the trajectory of losing on which the franchise remains. MacGregor joins me...

Photo by Rich Schultz/ Bringing your daily links to the NFL’s New York Jets Good morning, Gang Green Nation. I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. At this point, it’s all about cutting down the days until the start of training camp. Once we reach that point, we know football is just around the corner and the excitement couldn’t be grander. Until then, though, it’s a lot of speculation, rumor, and talks of expectation. For the team itself, it’ll be interesting to see the growth from Year 1 to Year 2 under Robert Saleh. With how poorly the team...

Jets Basic Passing Plays, Part 2

Jets Basic Passing Plays, Part 2

Photo by Rich Schultz/ The Mills & Smash concepts detailed In our quest to familiarize our readers with some of the more widely used passing schemes continues with a look at the Mills and Smash concepts. These are some basic passing schemes but add a little more complexity than our prior two schemes. What we are trying to show is what the receivers need to do along with what the QB is reading (in the defense) on the play. If the receiver and QB are solid in their jobs it makes it very tough for the defense to stop the play without some adjustments to their normal...

Jets Podcast: The Terry Bradway Era

Photo by Willie Anderson/NY Daily News Archive via Since we are in the quiet part of the offseason, I want to take the podcast in a different direction. Rather than look for the news of the day let’s discuss how the Jets got to where they are. Today is the first of a five part series looking at the last five Jets general managers. We begin with Terry Bradway who was hired in 2001 as Bill Parcells left the organization. Bradway held the job for five years before stepping into the background. The Jets made the Playoffs three times in those five years, but Bradway’s...

Photo by Rich Schultz/ Bringing your daily links to the NFL’s New York Jets Good morning, Gang Green Nation. I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. Despite many analysts being on board with the 2022 ‘new look’ Jets, one member of the team isn’t getting the same vote of confidence as the rest of the group. That player is Zach Wilson. Now, you all know how I originally felt about Wilson so I won’t continue to harp on that. But what’s interesting is PFF thinks that players like Davis Mills and more shockingly, Sam Darnold, have a better chance of...

At this stage of the offseason, we’re getting to a point where the news is slow, and the action is non-existent. With training camp beginning next month we’ll get a better glimpse as to what the offense and defense will look like, and who will be a part of each group. Early minicamps and offseason training programs aren’t too indicative of who will play where and what will go on - but it does give us a...

Scouting Jets guard Nate Herbig

Photo by G Fiume/ Over the last few months, we’ve been looking at the Jets rookies. We now move on to look at a couple of recent veteran additions, starting today with an in-depth look at former Eagles guard Nate Herbig. The 23-year old Herbig is listed at 6’4” and 334 pounds and has started 17 games in his first three NFL seasons, including five last season. He spent his first three years with the Eagles after being picked up as an undrafted free agent. Background Herbig was a three-star prospect out of high school and ended up attending Stanford where he made...

Shout out to Mr. Wells for holding down the fort over the weekend as usual. While most think that the Jets could be a year or two away from being serious playoff contenders, one Jets player thinks this is the year, and without a playoff berth it’s nothing but a bust. That player is LB CJ Mosley. To be fair, out of all the players on the Jets he has the right to be the most vocal in that regard. Prior to his...

New York Jets Flight Connections 06/26/22

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Good morning, Gang Green Nation! There is speculation that the Jets could be interested in bringing in Pro Bowl free agent offensive tackle Duane Brown. With both George Fant and Mekhi Becton coming off surgery, and with neither of them having more than one good year in the NFL, there is a need for additional help at offensive tackle, and it’s hard to argue Brown wouldn’t represent a major upgrade for the Jets. The trouble is, first, Brown will be 37 years old at the start of this season. It’s not clear that a rebuilding Jets...
New York Jets 21st Century Wine Cellar Team: Tight End

New York Jets 21st Century Wine Cellar Team: Tight End

Photo by Al Pereira/New York Jets/ Today I continue unveiling my 21st Century Jets Wine Cellar Team. We move onto the tight ends. Many of these positions have difficult choices because there are so many good players to choose from. The opposite is true at tight end. This was so difficult that I wondered to myself whether the team really needs any tight ends. Ultimately I decided to move forward with a few. If you are new to this series, I am building a 53 man roster comprised of Jets players from the 21st century. The twist is that I’m picking each player from a...

New York Jets Flight Connections 06/25/22

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Good morning, Gang Green Nation! C.J. Mosley thinks the Jets have a realistic shot at the playoffs this year. O.K., that’s what you want the players to believe, but they’re not exactly unbiased observers. Personally I think the playoffs might be a bridge too far this year, for three main reasons. First, most playoff spots go to the best QBs in the league every year. Not all, but most. The AFC is loaded with really good quarterbacks this year, making it a tough road for the Jets unless Zach Wilson makes a much bigger second year leap than...

Shout out to Mr. Wells for stepping up in my absence yesterday. The New York Jets training camp has been announced. Rookies have to report on July 19th while the veterans will be reporting one week later. With so many new - and young - faces on the team, we’re bound to see some surprise cuts from some of our favorite off-season prospects. This isn’t anything new. And while a player may be cut from the...

Photo by David Berding/ Over the last few months, we’ve been looking at the Jets rookies, concluding today with an in-depth look at former Illinois safety Tony Adams. The 23-year old Adams is listed at 6’0” and 205 pounds and had over 200 tackles along with three sacks and six interceptions in his five seasons with the Fighting Illini. Background Adams was a three-star prospect out of high school and committed to Illinois only to then suffer a serious knee injury in his final season in high school. He still headed to Illinois in 2017 and started two games at...
