Jets Coaching Candidate of the Day: Chris Petersen

Jets Coaching Candidate of the Day: Chris Petersen

With Todd Bowles likely on the way out at the end of the season, we are going to take a look at some of the potential candidates to replace him. Whenever we do something like this, there are some typical criticisms that always pop up like, “Why profile this guy? He stinks!” and “He won’t be interested.” We aren’t just profiling the good candidates or suggesting these people are all likely to take the job. We are simply looking at people the Jets could reasonably expected to call. Today’s candidate: Chris Petersen Category: College Coach Current Job: Washington Head Coach Years...

Podcast: Previewing Jets vs. Texans With Robert Land and Brian Patterson

Coming off a victory, the Jets have a short week. They are back in action on Saturday afternoon as they will take on the Houston Texans in the Meadowlands. Today to preview the game, I join Robert Land and Brian Patterson of Locked on Texans for one of the final Crossover Wednesday podcasts of the 2018 season. The Texans and the Jets have been going in different directions recently. For two months it seemed like the Texans couldn’t lose, but they are coming off a frustrating defeat to the Indianapolis Colts. It seemed like the Jets couldn’t win for two months, but they are coming off a...

After Week 14 of the NFL season Jets own the 5th pick in 2019 NFL Draft order

After Week 14 of the NFL season Jets own the 5th pick in 2019 NFL Draft order

The Jets’ win over the Bills had implications for the team’s slotting in the 2019 NFL Draft. The team entered the weekend owning the third overall slot. When combined with the other results this weekend, the Jets fell to the fifth slot. The current Draft order is below. San Francisco 3-10 Arizona 3-10 Oakland 3-10 Atlanta 4-9 Jets 4-9 Buffalo 4-9 Jacksonville 4-9 Tampa Bay 5-8 Detroit 5-8 Giants 5-8 The Jets’ remaining games are against the Houston Texans, the Green Bay Packers, and the New England Patriots. While the team came out of Sunday’s game victorious, that was the...

Jets podcast: Tuesday musings

Jets podcast: Tuesday musings

The Jets got a win on Sunday. It was good to see on a number of different levels. The victory ended a six game losing streak. During the win, Sam Darnold registered his first fourth quarter comeback and put together his first game-winning drive. While beating a bad Bills team probably won’t go down as the greatest moment in Sam’s career, these were still important rites of passage. Thinking long-term, however, the Jets are in a state of flux. 2018 has been a season of disappointment in New York, and changes are sure to come over the next few weeks. The big question is how big the...

Jets Week 14 Game Ball: Andre Roberts

Jets Week 14 Game Ball: Andre Roberts

The Jets won yesterday, which means we get the rare treat of awarding a game ball. We try to avoid giving the game ball to the quarterback aside from exceptional cases. I understand it if you think it should go to Sam Darnold with the idea his first fourth quarter comeback and first game-winning drive qualify as an exceptional case. When in doubt, I go with somebody other than the quarterback. I think return man Andre Roberts’ performance provides enough doubt to go with him. It was not a clean day for Roberts. His fumble of the second half kickoff essentially gifted the Bills a field...

Jets podcast: Darnold comeback ends losing streak

Jets podcast: Darnold comeback ends losing streak

For the first time since the middle of October, the Jets got a win yesterday. New York rallied late to beat the Buffalo Bills on the road 27-23. It was a stark contrast to the first meeting between the two teams in the Meadowlands last month won by Buffalo 41-10. A lot can change between games, and that certainly happened in this game. New York came back from an early 14-3 deficit and put together a game-winning drive in at the end of the game. The big story will be and should be Sam Darnold registering his first fourth quarter comeback and his first game winning drive. He may have done it...

Jets 27 Bills 23: Comeback in Buffalo

Jets 27 Bills 23: Comeback in Buffalo

The Jets ended their six game winning streak today, improving their record to 4-9 with a 27-23 comeback victory over the Bills in Buffalo. Let’s talk about what happened to get the Jets back into the win column. The Good Sam Darnold: I think Darnold’s progress is about the only thing making this team worth watching at this point. The biggest question surrounding the team on the field is whether Darnold can finish his rookie season strong. His return to the lineup was almost short-lived as he left the game early on after taking a hit on a scramble. After a brief Josh McCown cameo, Sam...

Jets vs. Bills and Week 14 on TV in New York

Jets vs. Bills and Week 14 on TV in New York

FOX has a doubleheader today, while CBS will show one game to each region. If you live in the New York area, you will see: Jets at Bills early on CBS Giants at Redskins early on FOX Eagles at Cowboys late on FOX ........................ The Jets and the Bills are scheduled to kick off at 1:00 p.m. Eastern. Spero Dedes and Adam Archuleta will call the game on CBS. Even in a week with regional action, this game between two bad AFC East teams is not a very desirable TV matchup for CBS so the broadcast map of the game will be quite limited. Essentially if you live in a TV market that originates...

Darron Lee suspended four games for violation of league’s substance abuse policy

Darron Lee suspended four games for violation of league’s substance abuse policy

Jets linebacker Darron Lee has been suspended four games for a violation of the NFL’s substance abuse policy. The NFL has suspended LB Darron Lee four games. https://t.co/PIo76aTNtp pic.twitter.com/95NAXc605H— New York Jets (@nyjets) December 7, 2018 The Jets have four games on his schedule, which means Lee’s 2018 season is over. The silver lining is there will be no spillover into 2019, which means he should be back in the lineup for Week 1. This is a disappointing end to the Ohio State product’s third season in the NFL. Lee was enjoying his best pro campaign. He had 74...

A rebuttal to Manish Mehta on Mike Maccagnan

A rebuttal to Manish Mehta on Mike Maccagnan

Even for a guy who writes a lot of nonsense, Manish Mehta’s latest article defending Mike Maccagnan really takes the cake. I usually try not to respond to articles like this, but once a year or so there is an piece of writing so ridiculous that it cannot go unchallenged. What is happening now with Maccagnan is pretty common. It is the typical case of a general manager who knows his job is on the line and is trying to push a narrative through the media that others are really to blame. You can see it throughout the league. We have seen it with past Jets regimes. Mehta doesn’t think the...

Podcast: Jets vs. Bills Preview

Podcast: Jets vs. Bills Preview

The Jets continue playing out the string this Sunday as they make their annual trip to Orchard Park to take on the Buffalo Bills. The good news is it sounds like Sam Darnold will be making his return to the starting lineup. The rookie has missed the last three games. If nothing else, Darnold’s presence will make the game more interesting as the future of the franchise looks to finish his rookie year on a strong note. Watching Sam out there certainly beats watching a journeyman 39 year old quarterback. On today’s podcast we preview the game. We will look at key players, key matchups, and...

Sam Darnold likely to start on Sunday vs. Bills: Report

Jets quarterback Sam Darnold is likely to return to the team’s starting lineup this Sunday at Buffalo according to Ian Rapoport.

The team has been 0-3 with Josh McCown starting in his place. All indications have been that Darnold’s return would be this week. He reportedly was feeling better leading up to last week game against Tennessee, but the Jets decided to go with McCown rather...

Podcast: Crossover With Locked on Bills to Preview Week 14

Our Crossover Wednesday show this week has been moved to Thursday. Kevin Massare of Locked on Bills and I once again connected to record a crossover show. This one is in advance of the second meeting between the Jets and the Bills of 2018. This one will be a road game for the Jets. The first meeting between the teams this season was about as ugly as one could imagine for the Jets. The Bills marched into MetLife Stadium with Matt Barkley at quarterback and dominated the Jets from the first play. On today’s show we will find out what the Bills have been up to since that embarrassing day at...
