  1. On this week’s episode of JetNation Radio Joe and Glenn have a lot of topics to discuss during this bye week! Who are the three studs and duds of both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. Where will guys like Jamal Adams, Marcus Maye, Leonard Williams, Demario Davis land? Where will players like Buster Skrine, Muhammad Wilkerson, Juston Burris, Brian Winters fall? We also get into more topics such as the state of the New York Jets, predictions for the rest of the season, best and worst play of the season so far. These topics and many more are discussed on this episode of JetNation Radio! Follow us on Twitter: Joe- @Joerb31 and Glenn- @Acefan23. You can watch or listen to the show below.

  2. Just over a year ago, Jets GM Mike Maccagnan made a bold move in taking a gamble on a talented yet troubled player in tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, and the move looks to have paid off in a big way thus far. Now we ask, will he take another gamble on the opposite side of the ball? The Atlanta Falcons yesterday cut ties with cornerback Jalen Collins who was forced to sit out the season’s first ten games for his second violation of the league’s substance abuse policy in as many years. In just his third pro season, the former second-round draft pick has apparently become too big of a headache for the Falcons to deal with. Atlanta was the first team to take a gamble on Collins who reportedly failed multiple drug tests as a member of the LSU tigers where he played alongside current Jets defensive backs Jamal Adams and Rashard Robinson. If the Jets feel a change of scenery and a few familiar faces will help keep Collins focused on football, his signing could be a coup. Pro Football Focus had this to say about Collins after naming him one of the league’s most improved second-year players: With star cornerback Desmond Trufant going down injured halfway through the 2016 season, it was left to Collins to step up as a starter for the Falcons’ playoff run. Despite not playing until Week 9, Collins finished the season ranked as the 25th CB in PFF grading. His 81.6 grade dramatically eclipsed an ugly rookie mark of 44.2, thanks to several notable big plays for the Falcons both down the stretch and throughout their playoff push. His nine pass breakups from Week 9 onwards were tied for second-most among all CBs, adding two interceptions into the mix, too. His forced fumble on Packers FB Aaron Ripkowski in the playoffs was one of the defining moments of the NFC Championship game. Whether the Jets place a claim on Collins or they make a move if he clears waivers, they could soon have four former LSU tigers in their defensive backfield as Collins would be joining Adams and Robsinson along with veteran cornerback Morris Claiborne. Given the lack of depth at the position and his low price tag, passing on Collins wouldn’t be an easy thing for Maccagnan to do. He took a shot with Seferian-Jenkins, and he’d be crazy not to take one here too. Click here to read the full story...
  3. The Jets got a bit of good news yesterday when they learned that charges against outside linebacker Lorenzo Mauldin have been dropped. Mauldin was facing charges for assault when a Queens club-goer claimed he was assaulted by the linebacker after spilling champagne on him during an evening out this off-season. He took to twitter to thank those who backed him, and he is now looking forward to getting back to football. In place of Mauldin, the Jets have used multiple linebackers in his spot, including Josh Martin, David Bass and Freddie Bishop with varying degrees of success. Exactly where Mauldin is in terms of his recovery from a back injury that has kept him out all season is an unknown. The team has said very little about the third-year player since he was placed on short-term IR at the outset of the season. Click here to read the full story...
  4. With the bye week behind us and the Jets getting ready to kick off their final six games of the season, here are a few notes, quotes, thoughts and links to recent Jets news. Todd Bowles has taken plenty of heat for sticking with Josh McCown at QB, but is the criticism justified without knowing if he’s been promised another season by ownership? If not, why would he do anything but play the player he believes has the best chance to save his job? We ask that and some questions about Mike Maccagnan right here. According to Bowles, he’s not paying any attention to the standings as mentioned here, but you can bet Jets fans are. While much of the league hovers in purgatory, as unlikely as it sounds, the Jets are just a win or two out of being in position to make the playoffs. It’s extremely unlikely, but who thought that would be the case after 10 games? If the Jets make an effort to accumulate draft choices this off-season, you have to believe Bryce Petty would be moved at some point. There were multiple reports of teams inquiring as to Petty’s availability, but Mike Maccagnan didn’t make a move. Petty has failed to impress Todd Bowles thus far and the Jets will likely be in the market for a high pick while signing or trading for another quarterback. Multiple teams have reportedly shown an interest in Bryce Petty. When the Jets acquired a second round draft choice from the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for Sheldon Richardson, most fans expected it to be a pick in the high 50’s overall. With the loss of Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor, Seattle may struggle, and the Jets could see that pick move up several slots higher than expected. A mid-second round pick would carry a lot more weight if and when the Jets try to move up on draft day While much of the hype leading in to this year’s draft surrounds the quarterbacks, as it should, another deep group on offense could help the Jets out quite a bit. Saquon Barkley, Derrius Guice, Ronald Jones and Damien Harris are just a few names that highlight the running back position. With Matt Forte likely on his way out after the season and Bilal Powell’s advanced age, the Jets could look to pluck a talented running back early on. It appears Leonard Williams is healthy and Muhammad Wilkerson is motivated. If the Jets have any hopes at stealing a few wins and staying in the playoff picture, they’ll need this pair to play their best football of the season starting this Sunday.

  5. The bye week is over and the Jets were back in Florham Park. Todd Bowles said all players were present for practice. He wouldn’t give detailed updates on injuries. A full report is coming out on Wednesday. Here are some quotes from Coach Bowles during his press conference on Monday. On how he feels about the team’s current status with six games remaining… We have six games to go. We control what we do. We take them one at a time, and we have to try to win them all. On if he believes the team could have a good run at a playoff spot… We believe we have to win them all and will let that take care of itself. We just have to win. We win, we take care of ourselves. On if he looks at where teams currently are in the standings… No, I don’t. I know we’re all jumbled up just by record-wise, but I didn’t really look at that as far as the games won/loss yesterday. On what the energy was like around the team today… It was good. They had a couple of days off. Any time people have some down time they come back more energetic than when they left. It’s been a long couple of weeks. Click here to read the full story...
  6. National writers do it. Beat writers to it. Wannabe beat writers (aka bloggers) do it. Fans, from the die-hard to the casual part-timer does it. We criticize and second-guess players, coaches, and executives based on hindsight, personal bias and a lack of willingness to simply say “I got it wrong” or to say a guy you dislike “got it right”. Jets head coach Todd Bowles and GM Mike Maccagnan are no different, and here’s a list of some of Gang Green’s most pressing issues with what we do know, what we don’t know, what we sort of know and why it matters. Jets fans appear to be torn on whether or not the team should turn to Bryce Petty. Starting Quarterback: What we know: Despite a strong pre-season, Bowles passed on Bryce Petty in favor of veteran journeyman Josh McCown to start. He has played well, but is clearly only around for a season or two. Christian Hackenberg was given more work than any quarterback on the roster in the pre-season but was an unmitigated disaster. Sitting at 4-6, many fans view the Jets’ season as a waste as there won’t be any extensive look at the young quarterbacks and Bowles says he can’t envision a scenario in which he makes a change. What we don’t know: This is the single-most important factor in analyzing Bowles’ decison, and it comes down to ownership. Woody Johnson, the team’s true owner, is spending his days at Winfield House nowadays, while his brother Christopher takes the reigns for the next few seasons. Has either owner assured Bowles that he will return as long as the team stays competitive? If not, you can’t blame Bowles for this decision. In his mind, if he is legitimately fighting for his job, he’s not going to put it in the hands of a project quarterback. What we “kind of” know: Before the start of the season, Woody Johnson said that he didn’t want fans to base the success of 2017 on wins and losses. A logical conclusion to such a statement would be that as long as the team isn’t a total embarrassment, Bowles’ job is safe. If that’s the case, and the only expectation from ownership is overall effort and improvement, there’s little excuse for Bowles to refuse to give Petty or Hackenberg a look. Pending Free Agents: What we know: Two of the team’s most pleasant surprises this season have been tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins and defensive lineman Kony Ealy. Both are due to hit free agency at season’s end. Fans have been calling for the duo to be re-signed for several weeks. What we don’t know: Any number of scenarios could be in the works here but only the Jets top brass knows. It’s possible that numbers are being exchanged as we speak. It’s possible that deals have been agreed on in principle, pending a strong/healthy finish to the 2017 season. It’s possible that the representatives for each player has refused to work on an in-season deal with an eye on driving up the price in free agency. Wanting both players to be signed long-term makes sense and there’s still plenty of time to get it done. Pretending to know how all sides are conducting business is just silly. Draft Day Targets: What we know: Nothing. This front office is as tight-lipped as any in the NFL and despite some of the most credible sources in the league being consistently wrong about their intentions, some fans will continue to take the bait. Jets twitter looked like its own version of “The Trail of Tears” a few days ago when Matt Miller of Bleacher Report said that a league source told him that the Jets “love” Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen. Miller followed that up by not naming a source whose opinion was that the Jets have done more work on Allen than anyone. What we don’t know: How much work the Jets have done on Allen in comparison to every other draft eligible college QB this season. As expected, Jets GM Mike Maccagnan and his staff have been heavily scouting quarterbacks. What we “kind of” know: If you are keeping an eye on which college games the Jets are scouting, it’s obvious that they are taking a long look at A LOT of quarterbacks. Without knowing who they have done the most work on, there is no reason to get worked up over one source from one school about one quarterback. Perhaps they’ve done the most work on Allen, but does that mean they have not done even more work on several other quarterbacks? No…the answer to that is no, we do not. Interior O-line: What we know: The Jets’ offensive line has been sub-par this season and center Wesley Johnson has been a big reason for that. Teams can consistently attack the team’s A-gaps and shut down running plays before they start or put almost immediate pressure on Josh McCown as Johnson ranks 37th of 37 NFL centers according to pro football focus. In all honesty, you don’t need PFF to tell you that Johnson has been terrible, you’ve got eyes for that. Back up O-lineman Dakota Dozier has looked like a far better player in limited reps this season and last, but has yet to get a look over Johnson. While Johnson has been terrible, the guards haven’t been much better. What we don’t know: Has Bowles auditioned other players at center during practice and come away still feeling as though Johnson is the best option? If so, it doesn’t say much for the team’s depth. Perhaps an even bigger question is how has Johnson impacted guards James Carpenter and Brian Winters. Previously viewed as the two most reliable players on the O-line, both have struggled mightily along with Johnson. Are the two playing with one eye on their assignment and another on Johnson’s? What we kind of know: Dozier was listed as the team’s back-up center two years ago but they seem hesitant to use him now. With Dozier being left-handed, something rarely seen in the NFL, are there concerns about the quarterback/center exchange? Just a few issues to consider for the Jets but each is critical for its own reason. So while we continue to debate the merits of many of the team’s decisions, just remember this classic clip from former head coach Jim Mora. Click here to read the full story...
  7. All offseason the debate raged on about the Jets and if they were trying to “tank” for a better draft pick. The Jets insisted that wasn’t the goal and their play on the field has been consistent with that. After the offseason purge of veterans, the Jets roster did indeed get younger. They were able to put to rest the talk that they were trying to lose games when they decided to play a 38 year old QB in Josh McCown. With 4 wins in the first 10 games the Jets have exceeded expectations because they are no where near the first overall pick. According to tankathon, the Jets currently have the 12th pick in the 2018 NFL draft. Exceeding expectations when people are predicting a winless season and being a good football team are two different things. Here is where the Jets sit today: Plenty of young talent to feel good about Lots of cap room to rebuild through free agency Still remain far away from finding the QB of the future The last bullet is the most important one and that is why the “tank” crowd wants the best possible draft pick. Who is the QB going to be next year and beyond? The answer could come through free agency, i.e. Kirk Cousins, but the odds are the Jets will be drafting a QB in the 1st round next year. So where will the Jets end up drafting? Sitting at 12 right now you have to think that they will draft lower than that. Look at the remaining schedule, it is very tough: Carolina Panthers (7-3), Kansas City Chiefs (6-4) , Denver Broncos (3-7), New Orleans Saints (8-2), LA Chargers (4-6), New England Patriots (8-2). The Broncos and Chargers are the only teams with losing records. The Chargers have to travel to the east coast to play the Jets at 1pm on Christmas Eve. Huge advantage for the Jets. The Broncos game is in Denver and that is never easy. The remaining opponents are a combined 29 and 11. With a schedule that tough you can expect the Jets to be drafting in the top 10. Plenty of time to talk about draft prospects, that is what our New York Jets draft forum is all about. For now we will be rooting for the Jets to win every week. The better the young prospects perform, the sooner they can get out of rebuild mode and start talking playoffs. Click here to read the full story...
  8. In case this Jets season hasn’t been painful enough, the Jets sent out an email on Wednesday making sure season tickets holders know they can donate their tickets. The remaining schedule is brutal and ticket prices have been dropping by the week. So the Jets decided to let you know you can donate your tickets and get a tax deduction. As opposed to selling them for pennies on the dollar. The added bonus is they send this email right after the yearly PSL bill was due. That is a really nice touch. As for us, we will be there regardless of their record. Our goal is to complete the trifecta of over payment: 1) Season tickets 2) PSLs 3) $125 to park the JetNation RV each week. It would be nice if there was a QB change soon so that we didn’t have to watch a 38 year old journeyman. But if Todd Bowles is to be believed, it sounds like there are no plans on playing either of the young QB’s. The email the team sent appears below, and if you don’t have season tickets but want to buy tickets for pennies on the dollar check out this link –> NY Jets Tickets.

  9. On this week’s episode of JetNation Radio Joe and Glenn will go over all aspects of the New York Jets loss in Tampa verses the Buccaneers. Who stood out in both a negative way (the entire offensive line) and who stood out in positive way (Steve McLendon, Leonard Williams, Robby Anderson). We will break down some NY Jets game film again and look at some story lines from the game including the snap count of Elijah McGuire vs Bilal Powell and Chad Hansen vs Ardarius Stewart. Is it time for Bryce Petty and should the Jets play Kony Ealy more? All of these topics and many more will be discussed on this episode of JetNation Radio!

  11. Week 10 Report Card: Jets @ Buccaneers L 15-10 Quarterback: D Josh McCown: 23/39 262 yards, 1 TD 1 INT The stat sheet isn’t terrible, but McCown played a bad game against the Buccaneers. Granted, the offensive line had their worst game of the season, but McCown made too many mistakes. Failing to hit open receivers, holding onto the ball for too long, and inaccurate throws were some of the miscues. McCown also failed to complete at least 60 percent of his passes for the first time this season. On one play McCown went deep, overthrowing Robby Anderson by at least a few yards resulting in an interception by Brent Grimes. Running back: D Bilal Powell: 10 rushes for 30 yards, 1 reception for 6 yards Elijah McGuire: 8 rushes for 22 yards, 4 receptions for 36 yards The running backs haven’t gotten much help up front this season, and that was the case again this week. The offensive line was manhandled by the Buccaneers’ front seven, other than a 21-yard rush by Bilal Powell, the running backs were constantly met in the backfield. Matt Forte was absent against the Buccaneers due to knee swelling, but it most likely wouldn’t have made much of a difference. Wide Receiver/Tight End: C- Robby Anderson: 4 receptions for 85 yards, 1 TD Austin Seferian-Jenkins: 6 receptions for 67 yards Jermaine Kearse: 4 receptions for 35 yards Chad Hansen: 3 receptions for 33 yards ArDarius Stewart: 1 reception for 0 yards, 1 rush for 4 yards There were multiple drops again this week. Robby Anderson bobbled a crucial first down pass and dropped it. Austin Seferian-Jenkins didn’t catch a pass until the game was almost over. Anderson has put up decent numbers for a few weeks in a row now, even though most of his yards this week didn’t come until the final minute. Meanwhile, Chad Hansen recorded his first regular season reception with the absence of Jeremy Kerley. Offensive Line: F What a way for the offensive line to follow up their best performance of the season. This was an embarrassing showing by the line. Josh McCown was sacked six times, and the Buccaneers’ front seven were living in the Jets’ backfield. There’s one word that can be used to describe the offensive line’s play this year: inconsistent. There hasn’t really been any stalwart on the offensive line since Nick Mangold was let go after last season. Defensive Line: C The defense played well enough to win this game, although they broke when it mattered… in the fourth quarter. The Jets can’t seem to get rid of their fourth quarter woes. The defensive line generated some pressure, but missed multiple opportunities to bring down Ryan Fitzpatrick due to bad tackling. On the bright side, Leonard Williams did record his first full sack of the season. Linebacker: B- The front seven did well against the run, other than Doug Martin’s 21-yard rush. Demario Davis gave up a game-ending touchdown pass to Charles Sims. Josh Martin did a good job getting in the backfield consistently, he recorded one and a half tackles for a loss and a quarterback hit. Secondary: C+ Darryl Roberts played a pretty good game, he had eight total tackles, two passes defended, and an interception on a throw behind Fitzpatrick’s intended receiver. The Jets’ secondary has the most penalties out of any unit in the NFL. Buster Skrine and Rashard Robinson lead all cornerbacks with nine and eight penalties respectively. Morris Claiborne isn’t far behind with six. Penalties were a problem again this week with the Jets recording eight against Tampa Bay. Special Teams: C It was an average day for special teams, nothing great and nothing terrible. JoJo Natson started at kick and punt returner, and didn’t do anything special. Lachlan Edwards had seven punts that averaged 50 yards with a long of 59. Chandler Catanzaro converted his only field goal attempt of 47 yards. Coaching: D Well, on the bright side the Jets didn’t waste a timeout this week. Unfortunately it didn’t really matter since their first touchdown didn’t come until there was 38 seconds left on the clock. The play calling was too conservative for most of the game, and Todd Bowles really needs to do something about the absurd amount of penalties. Overall Grade: D Click here to read the full story...
  12. Jets fans may be hoping to see one of the team’s two young quarterbacks this season, but head coachTodd Bowles sees no need for such a move according to Brian Costello of the New York Post. Sitting at 4-6, the Jets won’t be making the playoffs this season and many fans like the idea of being able to see either Bryce Petty or Christian Hackenberg before the team looks to add at least one new QB this offseason. Unfortunately for Jets fans, the only person whose opinion that matters is that of Bowles, and it appears his plan is to get a much longer look at 38-year old Josh McCown. Click here to read the full story...
  13. The casual fan knows it, the die-hard fan know it, and despite the fact that he may not do anything about it, Todd Bowles knows it. It’s time for Bryce Petty to take over at quarterback for the New York Jets. Gang Green travelled down to Tampa today and suffered an embarrassing 15-10 loss at the hands of the Ryan Fitzpatrick-led Bucs in a game that saw the Jets offense score just 3 points before a garbage-time TD pass from Josh McCown to wide receiver Robby Anderson. A feel-good win against the Buffalo Bills last week does not erase the fact that with McCown under center, the team is 1-4 in its last five games. Surely they can get a similar performance with Bryce Petty getting some valuable live reps while also drawing some conclusions about his future with the team. If Petty isn’t going to be a starter, will he at least earn the label of “quality back-up” moving forward? Todd Bowles has some big decisions to make during his team’s bye week. If there’s ever a good time to break in a new quarterback, it’s now. They’ve lost four of five heading in to their bye week. This allows Petty extra time to prepare, and it gives offensive coordinator John Morton ample time to make a smooth transition to Petty. Todd Bowles however, has earned a reputation as a head coach who will often play his veterans over a youngster when a change may be in order. If that trend continues with McCown, one would have to believe that Bowles has been given no assurances from ownership that he’ll be around next season, and that he’s coaching for his job. If that’s the case, the blame shouldn’t’ be pinned on Bowles if he truly believes McCown is the Jets’ best option at the moment. If Bowles has been told he’ll return as long as the team’s effort remains high and improvement from his young players is evident, he’s not doing himself or the franchise any favors by sticking with the veteran in McCown. The time is now, Todd. We all know it, so please do something about it. It’s Petty time. Click here to read the full story...
  14. The 4-5 Jets traveled to Tampa Bay to take on the 2-6 Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. They played against a familiar face in QB Ryan Fitzpatrick who started in place of the injured Jameis Winston. Both teams were missing key offensive starters: WR Mike Evans (suspended) for the Bucs and RB Matt Forte (knee) for the Jets. New York running backs Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire handled duties in the backfield. THE GOOD Leonard Williams sacked Fitzpatrick in the second quarter. CB Darryl Roberts picked off a Fitzpatrick pass and got his first interception as a professional. K Chandler Catanzaro hit a 47-yard field goal just before the half. The Jets consistently gave the Bucs poor field position. WR Robby Anderson caught a 38-yard fourth quarter touchdown. THE BAD New York failed to score any points in the first quarter. The team only had 7 first downs and 166 total yards on 50 yards rushing and 66 yards passing. They also had 5 penalties for 44 yards in the first half. The Jets gave up a 44-yard punt return in the second quarter. The defense gave up a 6-yard touchdown pass to RB Charles Sims. THE UGLY QB Josh McCown had a pass intercepted in the second quarter. Powell fumbled near the end of the third quarter and gave the Bucs the ball near midfield. S Marcus Maye was called for illegal contact as he intercepted a pass by Fitzpatrick. The offensive line gave up six sacks. Jets inactives included: QB Christian Hackenberg, RB Matt Forte, CB Robert Nelson, CB Derrick Jones, LB David Bass, LB Obum Gwacham and OL Jonotthan Harrison Click here to read the full story...
  15. As we discussed here in our preview a couple of days ago, there are several key match-ups to keep an eye on when the Jets and Bucs kick off at 1pm in Tampa. Here are some additional notes on the two teams as game time approaches. The Jets catch a break with Mike Evans being suspended, but the Bucs still have plenty of weapons on offense. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson is always a threat, while tight ends OJ Howard and Cameron Brate have combined for 7 touchdowns. Running back Doug Martin hasn’t been featured as a receiver much this season, but could that change against the likes of Darron Lee who has struggled in coverage? On Special teams, the Jets could use a boost at punt returner where they’ve been largely ineffective for years. Recently promoted JoJo Natson had five punt returns for touchdowns in college. Interesting to see if the 5′ 7” youngster can provide a spark. Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) had some high praise for Jets rookie safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye this week. The duo will be worth watching against the aforementioned duo of OJ Howard and Cameron Brate. The Bucs are banged up on the O-line. Starting OG JR Sweezy and both starting offensive tackles (Demar Dotson and Donovan Smith) are listed questionable. If the Bucs are down a starter or two in the trenches, it could be a long day for them on offense. With the D-line stepping up, maybe some blitzes off the edge can help the Jets get to Ryan Fitzpatrick. Josh Martin, anyone? With Matt Forte out, it’s a chance for Elijah McGuire to see some significant reps. He’s shown the ability to do a lot of different things in a short time with the Jets. If the blocking is there, he’ll make things happen. Can’t help but wonder what would be worse if the Jets were to lose this game. Big game from Fitz, or game-changing play from William Gholston, cousin of former mega-bust Vernon Gholston. Only a few hours before kickoff Jets fans. Here’s to .500!
