Podcast: Jets vs. Steelers Preview as Zach Wilson Returns

Podcast: Jets vs. Steelers Preview as Zach Wilson Returns

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports The Jets are in Pittsburgh this weekend for a Week 4 game against the Steelers. Both teams are off to a 1-2 start. The winner of this game will feel better after a rough first three weeks. This is a chance for the Jets and the Steelers to get to 2-2. Only one can, though. The loser will be 1-3 and in a desperate situation (unless there is a tie which would leave both teams relatively unhappy at 1-2-1). On today’s podcast I break down what I think are the key points. Zach Wilson returns to the lineup. What are expectations? Does he need...

A Jets Fan’s Life as a Homegater

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Confessions of a fan with some odd rituals when watching the Jets from home. We all have our own rituals for watching the New York Jets. While it’s fun going to a game at MetLife Stadium or on the road, football above any other sport is built for TV. It’s impossible to follow everything happening on the field at a given time. All of the camera angles and replays help you take in the game. I think my rituals are probably different from those of most others. Before the game If it’s a 1 p.m. game, I usually try to spend my morning...

Podcast: Jets-Steelers Talk With Chris Carter

Sam Greene-USA TODAY Sports Today is the weekly Crossover Thursday podcast. With the Jets in Pittsburgh ready to take on the Steelers, I join Chris Carter, the host of Locked On Steelers to break down Week 4 action between a pair of struggling teams. The Steelers are not getting great play at the quarterback position, and they have some offensive line questions. The Jets are obviously not playing great defense. They get their own quarterback, Zach Wilson, returning to the lineup this week, but they have a significant question mark at tackle. George Fant became the third...

Podcast: George Fant to IR; Weekly Mailbag

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports The Jets are dealing with a difficult situation at tackle. George Fant was placed on injured reserve yesterday. Fant becomes the third Jets tackle to go to the injured list. This leaves Conor McDermott in line to start as Zach Wilson returns to the lineup. That is less than ideal. On today’s podcast we discuss the implications of the injury to Fant. There are no easy answers for the Jets. They have to try and figure out a way to make this work, though. After discussing Fant we move onto our weekly mailbag. As always, I thank those who...

Fool Me Twice

Fool Me Twice

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports There aren’t many guarantees in the NFL. One is opponents will force you to prove you have fixed a problem they spot on film. In Week 2 the Browns lined up for a third and goal play on the six. The Jets run a rather complex coverage. One way to think about it is the team starts the play in zone. Then as a receiver runs into somebody’s zone, that defender picks him up in man coverage. The Browns had three receivers to the left of their formation. Below is an approximation of the routes and the defenders who picked those players up. ...

Podcast: The Jets Need More From Their Free Agent Signings

Podcast: The Jets Need More From Their Free Agent Signings

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports The Jets are 1-2 this season. There is no one reason for the early struggles. Some of it is due to injuries. Some of it is due to bad luck. Some of it is because the Jets have been playing Joe Flacco at quarterbacks. Among the contributors is the lack of performance from players the team signed in free agency. We have been seeing a lot of promising things from the rookie class of 2022. Unfortunately the additions made during free agency haven’t played up to expectations with the exception of DJ Reed. Rookies can’t be expected to do it...

Robert Saleh Provides Jets Injury Update

Danielle Parhizkaran/NorthJersey.com / USA TODAY NETWORK Jets head coach Robert Saleh provided updates on several injured players Monday at his media availability. The most important update is on the condition of quarterback Zach Wilson. The Jets said a few weeks ago that Wilson’s earliest possible return was this week against Pittsburgh. The head coach wasn’t willing to provide any update today, however.

Jets Week 3 Anti-Game Balls and Game Ball

Jets Week 3 Anti-Game Balls and Game Ball

Sam Greene/The Enquirer / USA TODAY NETWORK The Jets lost yesterday to the Bengals. Let’s get to our anti-game balls. I also have a single game ball to give out. Anti-Game Balls Defensive Line: I feel like if you look at the overall numbers they don’t look terrible. The Jets got a fair amount of heat on Joe Burrow. Still there was something missing. The Bengals jumped out to an early lead, one they would never surrender, and controlled the trenches in those first phases of the game. The Jets failed to finish on a number of sack opportunities that turned into...

Podcast: Jets Fall to Bengals 27-12

Sam Greene/The Enquirer / USA TODAY NETWORK After a thrilling win a week ago against the Cleveland Browns the Jets had a chance to get over .500 by beating the Cincinnati Bengals yesterday at MetLife Stadium. It did not happen. The Bengals beat the Jets 27-12. The performance on the New York side was ugly. Cincinnati dominated on both sides of the ball. The two score margin did not do justice to how much better the Bengals were than the Jets in this game. It is back to the drawing board for the Jets. On today’s podcast we break down the loss. Both the offense and the...

Bengals 27 Jets 12: Letdown City

Sam Greene/The Enquirer / USA TODAY NETWORK The Jets were not able to build off their thrilling victory in Cleveland from last week. Today they fell 27-12 to the Cincinnati Bengals at MetLife Stadium to fall to 1-2 on the 2022 season. I think that score is a bit deceptive. Yes, it was a two score game. The Jets even drove deep into Cincinnati territory early in the fourth quarter down 15. Still it never felt like the team was truly within striking distance. Aside from kicker Greg Zuerlein, who connected on all four of his field goal attempts, it isn’t easy to find...
