Jets Week 8 Podcast Mailbag

Photo by Fred Kfoury III/Icon Sportswire via It’s that time of week again. Today we have our weekly Wednesday podcast mailbag. As always this is the point where I thank you for sending in questions. A mailbag show isn’t possible without mailbag questions, and we got a lot of great questions this week. As usual there were more questions than there was time to answer all of them. If your question went unanswered this week, feel free to resend it for a future mailbag episode. Unsurprisingly the questions this week were heavily focused on the quarterback position....

Moore Space

Moore Space

Photo by Maddie Malhotra/ In the second half of Sunday’s loss to the Patriots, Elijah Moore scored a 19 yard rushing touchdown on an end around. This wasn't the only time Moore made a play getting the ball in space on Sunday. In the first quarter he broke a tackle on a catch near the line of scrimmage and turned it up the field for a 13 yard gain. On closer inspection, though. This probably wasn’t the play that was called. You can see at the snap the offensive line run block. They all move to their right at the snap as though it’s a zone run play. Michael Carter...

Podcast: Jets Lose Zach Wilson 2-4 Weeks; Trade for Joe Flacco

Podcast: Jets Lose Zach Wilson 2-4 Weeks; Trade for Joe Flacco

Photo by Fred Kfoury III/Icon Sportswire via There was a lot of quarterback news for the Jets on Monday. The team found out the fate of rookie starter Zach Wilson. Wilson suffered a knee injury in Sunday’s loss to New England that knocked him out of the game. The news is not the best imaginable, but it also is not the worst. The Jets will be without the number two overall pick for 2-4 weeks as he recovers from a sprained PCL. This left the natural question of who will take over as starter. Could the Jets really go with Mike White? Maybe would it be veteran journeyman...

Report: Jets Acquire Joe Flacco in a Trade from Eagles

Photo by Adam Glanzman/ Jets quarterback Zach Wilson is out 2-4 weeks with a sprained PCL. To replace him it looks like the team is turning to its backup from a year ago. Mike Garofalo reports the team is on the verge of reacquiring veteran signal caller Joe Flacco from the Philadelphia Eagles. Sources: The #Eagles are trading Joe Flacco to the #Jets. With Zach Wilson out of action for a few weeks, Flacco is headed back to Florham Park.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) October 25, 2021 Jets trading a conditional 6th-round pick to Philadelphia that can possibly be...

Jets Week 7 Anti-Game Ball: Coaching Staff

Jets Week 7 Anti-Game Ball: Coaching Staff

Photo by Maddie Malhotra/ The Jets lost yesterday so as tradition dictates we must give out an anti-game ball. Almost every anti-game ball article I have ever written through the years has had comments saying it should go to one particular coach or the coaching staff. I generally avoid doing this for the same reason I try to avoid giving it to the quarterback. Coaching failures, like quarterback play, are at the root of most causes. You could probably come up with a plausible argument to give the coaching staff the anti-game ball after every loss. If we do that,...

Mike LaFleur’s First Series Playcalling Was Inexplicable Against the Patriots

Mike LaFleur’s First Series Playcalling Was Inexplicable Against the Patriots

Photo by Rich Schultz/ I am having a difficult time comprehending exactly what Mike LaFleur was trying to accomplish in the first series of yesterday’s loss to the Patriots. Let me get the disclaimers out of the way. The Jets were outclassed in every phase of the game. The players and coaches both did a horrible job. The team is still at a talent disadvantage most weeks when it takes the field. The first series of the game wasn’t responsible for the outcome. Still I was interested to see what the Jets would come up with. The bye week is a great opportunity for a...

Report: Zach Wilson Out 2-4 Weeks With a Sprained PCL

Photo by Al Pereira/ Jets quarterback Zach Wilson left yesterday’s loss to the Patriots with an apparent knee injury in the first half. He did not return. After the game there were rumblings from the Jets locker room that the rookie quarterback had sustained some sort of PCL injury. ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed today that Wilson has a sprained PCL. His estimated timeline to return is 2 to 4 weeks. An MRI confirmed a sprained PCL for Jets’ QB Zach Wilson, who now is expected to be sidelined 2-4 weeks, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 25,...

Podcast: Jets Embarrass Themselves in New England

Photo by Matthew J. Lee/The Boston Globe via It was ugly yesterday in Foxborough. The Jets lost 54-13 to the Patriots. There is no scenario where that is an acceptable result. It’s even worse when it comes against a division rival. It’s unfathomable when it comes off the bye week. The Jets had two weeks to prepare for this game and looked as unprepared as you’ll see a team in any NFL game this season. On today’s podcast I talk about the game, although this episode is essentially a vent about how terrible the Jets were. The players were awful. The coaches were...

Patriots 54 Jets 13: ...................

Photo by Maddie Meyer/ You can pick your adjective to describe the Jets’ performance on Sunday. Embarrassing, pathetic, unacceptable, unwatchable, putrid, and horrific all immediately come to mind. They all accurately describe the Jets’ level of play yet they still feel inadequate. The 2021 season for the Jets is being judged on the nebulous criteria of making progress. It can be sometimes be difficult to sort out progress from the win-loss record. We have no such difficulty in today’s 54-13 loss to the Patriots. There was no progress shown. The Jets have excuses...

The State of the Onion

The State of the Onion

Photo by Rich Schultz/ When I watch the Jets these days I see a number of young players showing promise. I don’t see much else. That comes as little surprise. My former SB Nation colleague Jimmy Kempski compiles the average age of each NFL team on cutdown day each year. The Jets’ initial 53 man roster in 2021 was the youngest in football. Youth can be exciting, but there are pitfalls. There are some issues a lack of experience creates. Take this play by Bryce Hall from the Jets’ loss in London to Atlanta. It came at a critical juncture of the game. The Falcons...

This Week’s Jets Fan Confidence Rating Is 59%

Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports It is time for our periodic check in with SB Nation Reacts. If you aren’t sure what SB Nation Reacts is, I will let you know. Each week SB Nation sends out surveys to NFL fans asking them opinions about their favorite team and the league in general. Since we last checked in the confidence rating has fallen among Jets fans. Two weeks ago heading into the London game against Atlanta, 80% of fans had confidence. The figure today stands at 59%. It was at 54% last week heading into the bye so that is pretty stable. It...

I join Mike D’Abate, the host of Locked on Patriots, for information on the AFC East rivals from Foxborough ahead of this weekend’s game between the Jets and the Patriots. Over the last few years I have gotten the opportunity to speak frequently with Mike, and I always enjoy chatting with him. He offers a ton of insight on the bitter AFC East rivals.
