NY Jets: The Importance of Drafting Well

I think everybody knows these days in professional sports that the only recipe for success is effective drafting and player development. One recent Jets move really brought this to light. Important as we might believe quality drafting is, the Brian Winters contract truly displays how out of hand the free agent market is getting. Whether you agree with the decision the Jets made,...

How Jets wound up with the coach who isn’t in the Super Bowl

Two years ago, the Jets had zeroed in on two candidates in their search to replace Rex Ryan as head coach: Dan Quinn and Todd Bowles.

New York Jets: Drafting a quarterback is fools gold

The New York Jets must be salivating at the fact that they can land either quarterback Deshaun Watson or Mitch Trubisky with the sixth overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, but is that really the best plan for this team?

NY Jets: The Paradox of Salary Cap Space

Recent reports about the Jets' salary cap situation are generally bad. Last week we found out that the team will carry over less than $500k of unused cap space from 2016 to 2017. Going 5-11 is bad enough. The Jets didn't even save any cash on their way to 5-11. They also aren't starting the offseason with a ton of room.
