In 2016, the New York Jets overpaid an old journeyman quarterback based on an outlier season. Outside of his on the field play, he was regularly cited as an ideal mentor or bridge quarterback to the team’s younger players at the position. Have they repeated the same mistake heading into the 2017 season? There was never a reason for the Jets to pay Ryan Fitzpatrick 12 million...

The Jets haven’t gotten much return on the second-round pick they used on wide receiver Devin Smith in the 2015 draft and that wasn’t going to change this season. Smith tore his ACL in April and the team waived him with an injury designation on Monday. Should Smith pass through waivers unclaimed, he will revert…

The expectations for the New York Jets in 2017 are unreasonably low, given the changes made. Many fans and pundits look at the young and inexperienced New York Jets roster coupled with a tough schedule and see a dark season for Gang Green. There’s one thing we should learn from the past, and that is […] Youth movement leads to unreasonably low expectations - The Jet Press - The...

Big questions remain for the Jets special teams heading into 2017. With the NFL enjoying a stupidly long off-season (in my opinion), I reached out to the Jets faithful on Twitter to ask for the questions you want answering, and I'll be covering a few over the coming days. I plan on touching on Lac Edwards in another piece, so today I'm focusing in on Catanzaro. For the first...

Elliott Harrison of NFL.com is asking one pressing question about each team during the offseason. For the Jets he strikes a familiar chord. New York Jets: Will the young QBs sink or swim? Nobody expects the Jets to compete this season. Even their fans, who can be notoriously cynical, would probably be surprised (and maybe even satisfied) with six wins. But even if New York goes...

If you're looking for a little optimism on the Jets season, I'd avoid sports illustrated. I don't think it will come as a surprise to hear that many pundits don't believe in the 2017 New York Jets. It's easy to see why, we lack a lot of quality in a lot of positions. Well maybe we don't lack it, we just have unproven players who are yet to show their NFL credentials. Is it possible...

Christian Hackenberg? Marcus Williams? Calvin Pryor? These Jets need to have big showings in OTAs

The Jets invested a second-round pick in Christian Hackenberg last year. He'll compete to be the team's starter this year. What does history say about how quarterbacks have played in their second season?

Unless Christian Hackenberg has magically developed pinpoint accuracy this offseason, it seems unlikely he’ll be the starting quarterback for the New York Jets in 2017.Discussing the Jets’ upcoming so-called quarterback competition, Rich Cimini of ESPN shared what one scout had to say about Hackenberg.“I talked to an opposing scout who studied him in pregame warmups for one...
With the NFL draft now two weeks in the past, everyone’s opinions of this year’s draft results are in the open. No one will know how this year’s draft will look until a few years down the road. However, it is never too early to second guess the selections made by New York Jets GM Mike Maccagnan. Here are the picks I would’ve made (in the spots the Jets selected, including...
Former New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott joins The Michael Kay Show to discuss his event, Taste of the Jets, and talk about the state of Gang Green.
SNY's Jeane Coakley talks to New York Jets QB Josh McCown about how Bart Scott's Taste of the Jets event is bringing the whole team together, and also gets his thoughts on the season ahead.
Jet fans might be a bit down going into next season. That’s fair, considering it is unlikely that the Jets will win more than five games and almost certainly will have no chance at making the playoffs. However, if Jets fans can look past the lack of winning (something that they should be pretty used to by now), they might be able to find some reasons for hope; hope that this offense...
The Jets’ had one of the best drafts in 2017 than they have had in years. The question now is which pick will have the best rookie season? Tight end Jordan Leggett stands out. Drafted out of Clemson in the fifth round by the Jets, the tight end did wonders for the Tiger’s offense. During his last two seasons, Leggett recorded a total of 1,261 yards on 86 receptions and 15 touchdowns...
Pete Carroll saying on Monday that the Seattle Seahawks have considered Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III as backup options to Russell Wilson apparently is more than just lip service.NFL Media’s Mike Silver reported on Monday that Seahawks GM John Schneider reached out to Kaepernick’s agent last week.

I’m beginning to think Antonio Cromartie may not have had a vasectomy after all. For the second time in as many years, Cromartie’s wife says she is pregnant.

Per the TMZ Sports report, Terricka is 25 weeks pregnant, and...
The New York Jets would love for Christian Hackenberg to have a great training camp and seize the starting job, and it sounds like the former Penn State star is in the right frame of mind to do just that.With the Jets having signed 38-year-old Josh McCown, there has been speculation that the veteran could start in a bridge year in 2017. Hackenberg can prevent that from happening...
Hopefully you didn’t throw out that Stevan Ridley New York Jets jersey yet.Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports on Thursday that Ridley, who was a member of the Jets during the 2015 season, recently worked out for the team and has also been drawing interest elsewhere. Ridley, still just 28, was quite forgettable in his nine appearances as a Jet, rushing for 2.5 yards per carry...
A point of contention throughout the NFL off-season has been whether Colin Kaepernick is being blackballed by the world of professional football over his national anthem protest, which the quarterback has already admitted he will no longer continue past the 2016 season. As the months pass and no job for Kaepernick materializes, the league knows it has yet another PR nightmare on...
Mike Vick isn’t coming back to save the New York Jets. Rather, Vick is as confused as anyone about the quarterback situation in New York after the team chose to ignore the position in the draft. This leaves the Jets with Christian Hackenberg, Bryce Petty and others. For Vick, the situation seems like a mess, though he’d advise the front office to continue the youth movement:...
