Report: Zach Wilson Suffered Groin Injury Week 1

Report: Zach Wilson Suffered Groin Injury Week 1

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports Jets quarterback Zach Wilson suffered a groin injury in the first game of the season against the Carolina Panthers. Wilson, the No. 2 pick in April, suffered a groin injury during the 19-14 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 1, according to a source. He played through it Sunday during a 25-6 loss to the New England Patriots, and the injury could potentially require maintenance throughout the season. As it currently stands, there’s no reason to believe Wilson will miss any games with the groin injury. He...
Third Down Chess

Third Down Chess

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports In Sunday’s game there was an interesting back and forth battle on third downs between Jets defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich and Patriots quarterback Mac Jones and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. On the game’s first third down the Jets load the area close to the line of scrimmage with defenders. This is meant to confuse the quarterback. The offense needs to figure out which players are blitzing and make sure they are all blocked. It’s possible some of these players will drop into coverage and won’t need...

Jets Week 3 Podcast Mailbag

Jets Week 3 Podcast Mailbag

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Today we have the weekly podcast mailbag. This week there was an overwhelming volume of questions. That is both good and bad. It is good because mailbag questions fuel the mailbag show. The more questions you get, the better the show will likely be (making the dicey assumption I can come up with good answers). However, it means many great questions will go unanswered. Please feel free to resubmit any unanswered questions for future mailbag episodes. Today we look at whether it is time to start questioning Joe Douglas, the play of a...

New York Jets Flight Connections 9/22/21

Photo by Elsa/ Bringing your daily links to the NFL’s New York Jets Good morning, GGN! I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. One of the major talking points prior to the start of the season was about second-year receiver, Denzel Mims. In very limited action, Mims showed some promise in his rookie season. But a bout of food poisoning and injuries in camp slowed down what most deemed to be his ‘breakout’ season. If you read the tea leaves however, it seems like one of the main reasons for Mims’ benching is due to his effort in practice, and...
Podcast: Jets Questions After Two Weeks

Podcast: Jets Questions After Two Weeks

Photo by Mike Comer/ The NFL season is now more than 10% finished. Football is singular among sports due to the short season. Ten days ago we were awaiting opening day. Now the season is in full swing. We have seen enough about the Jets to at least have some idea about the team. There have been surprising developments both good and bad. On today’s podcast I discuss some of the major questions the first two weeks have brought. These are questions that will inevitably be answered during the final fifteen games of the 2021 season. They involve Zach Wilson’s readiness,...
Breaking Down Zach Wilson’s Four Interceptions

Breaking Down Zach Wilson’s Four Interceptions

Photo by Elsa/ Let’s get this over with so that we can move on. Interception #1 This is a three man pattern. You have Corey Davis (red) working over the middle of the field. You have Elijah Moore (orange) on the outside and a checkdown option out of the backfield (yellow). This is a long developing play. It doesn’t last long enough for us to see what the actual plan was, but based on the movements of the players I would guess the design here is to get Davis to draw the attention of the one deep safety and for Moore to run to the vacated area on a...

2021 NFL Power Rankings, Week 3: Thrown For A Loss

Photo by Elsa/ Well that didn’t take long. The good feelings of the offseason are quickly slipping away as the New York Jets plunge to the bottom of the pack. A second straight loss in which the Jets were never really in the game has the Jets faithful restless. To make matters worse, rookie quarterback Zach Wilson looked lost in one of the worst demonstrations of bad quarterbacking you are ever likely to see. The New York Jets lost to the New England Patriots on Sunday in a 25 - 6 blowout that could have been much worse had the Patriots not been running out the clock...

Photo by Elsa/ Bringing your daily links to the NFL’s New York Jets Good morning, GGN! I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. Now that another day’s passed since the loss to New England, you would assume the mood has changed a little regarding the team. That however, isn’t the case. Fans are already in dismay, ready to anoint Zach Wilson a bust like his predecessors were. I was disappointed in Wilson’s performance myself, but it’s way too early to have any type of opinion on his future going forward. He’s a rookie who just played his second...
The Inexplicable Go To Guy

The Inexplicable Go To Guy

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports It was largely lost in Zach Wilson’s ugly performance on Sunday, but the most targeted Jets receiver in the game was Braxton Berrios. Largely viewed as a depth afterthought heading into the season, Berrios also tie Corey Davis for the most targets in the season opening loss to the Carolina Panthers. Through two games Berrios has 18 targets. The Jets have 70 passing attempts, meaning Berrios has been targeted just over one quarter (25.7%) of the time when the Jets have thrown it. To contextualize the extent to which Berrios has been...
Jets Week 2 Anti-Game Ball: Zach Wilson

Jets Week 2 Anti-Game Ball: Zach Wilson

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports The Jets lost yesterday which means it is time to give out an anti-game ball. I really hate it when I have to give the anti-game ball to the quarterback. I hate it even more when the quarterback is a rookie. I hate it more still when it is the rookie’s second game. I just don’t think there is much choice today. I can’t think of an option other than Zach Wilson. Wilson’s four interception performance on Sunday was as ugly as it gets. It was also fairly unique in the recent pantheon of young Jets quarterbacks. Sam Darnold, Geno...

Podcast: Zach Wilson Implodes as the Jets Lose to New England

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Today’s podcast recaps yesterday’s loss to New England. The Jets were defeated by the Patriots 25-6 in the home opener and fell to 0-2 in the 2021 season. The story of the game was Zach Wilson, and it wasn’t a good story. The rookie’s first home game was a disaster. He threw four interceptions and essentially took the Jets out of the game. It’s important to not overreact to one game, but I don’t think you can underreact either. This performance seemed to go beyond your typical rookie struggles, and Wilson needs to bounce...

Photo by Elsa/ 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. Shout out to Mr. Wells for holding down the fort over the weekend. The New York Jets suffered a grueling defeat to the New England Patriots yesterday. Spearheading that loss was rookie Zach Wilson, who threw four interceptions in the game. At one point, Wilson had more interceptions than completions to his wide receivers. This loss was brutal from a fan’s perspective, as the rest of the team actually played very...
