The Jets had issues last year. Is head coach Todd Bowles worried they'll resurface in 2017? Watch video PHOENIX -- The Jets were a bad football team last year. Scratch that -- they were awful. Terrible on defense, dreadful on offense. Few could have predicted the dysfunctional mess they'd become. Not after coming so close to...

Todd Bowles spoke with the media on Tuesday. He did not offer a ton of information. He mentioned a few things of note about the quarterback position. He refused to name a starter for 2017. He also mentioned that the Jets could potentially use the sixth pick on a quarterback. That should come as no major surprise. The team has offered indications for a while that this was a possibility...

What should you make of Todd Bowles' stance on tardiness? PHOENIX -- There's a chance Todd Bowles made a headline while trying not to make a headline. He could very well have been sick of reporters asking him about tardiness issues in the Jets locker room, so this was his way of defusing the situation once and for all. Or, this could be...

Never has a fan base ever looked at the signing of Josh McCown as such a signal of intent. It has answered the question of which veteran the Jets would end up bringing in, but truthfully not much else. Let’s take a look at the options the Jets have in finding their starting quarterback going forward. An “open competition” ends up never really being anything other than Josh...

Gang Green’s run/pass protection has lost some vital pieces the past two seasons, including longtime left tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson and center Nick Mangold. At 25-years-old, Harrison has played every positon on the offensive line and that kind of versatility could be exactly...

The New York Giants added a powerful weapon on offense when they signed veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall. And It appears he and fellow wideout Odell Beckham Jr. are bonding quite nicely.So much so, that Marshall looks to be eager to subtly take on the role of a mentor to OBJ. Marshall is nine years Beckham’s senior and has had a colorful career filled with ups and downs over...
To start off, NFL free agency is technically not over. In fact, there are still quite a few big names that are still on the market (Adrian Peterson anyone?). Despite this, the New York Jets have already signed their biggest free agent of 2017, Josh McCown, and have made their offseason plan clear to fans: full on rebuild from the ground up. While many thought the Jets might go...
The 2016 New York Jets season was not one to remember fondly. Injuries, ineffectiveness and more of the traditional Jets controversy we’ve long been accustomed to were some of the highlights (or lowlights) of the season. That said, the offseason is a great time to evaluate what a team has in terms of skill and potential success. Below, the wide receivers of the Jets will...

The Steelers had been offering over $9 million per...
New York Jets fans were unhappy after it was announced that the team signed Josh McCown on Monday. However, they need to pump the brakes and realize that it was actually a good move.Sure, McCown is journeyman. He has played for seven different teams over the course of his NFL career, which he’s often criticized for. But at this stage of his career, that translates to experience...
Christian Hackenberg had a rookie season to forget with the New York Jets, but perhaps all the bad press he has received is not an indication of how the team envisions his future.The Jets signed Josh McCown to a one-year contract on Monday, and the veteran quarterback could be asked to lead the team in an obvious bridge year. Now that they have seemingly settled for a mediocre option...
Josh McCown is heading to the Jets.The veteran QB agreed to a one-year deal with the New York Jets that will pay him $6 million guaranteed, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.McCown, who will be 38 when the season begins, is hardly a reason for the Jets to get excited. He passed for 1,100 yards, 6 touchdowns and 6 interceptions last season with the Browns while struggling to stay...
Normally a quarterback drafted in the second round who is entering his second season is ready to at least take a shot at being the starter.Not Christian Hackenberg.A source told the New York Daily News in January that Hackenberg “will never make it,” and it’s hard not to believe that source with the Jets bringing in all these retread backups for a visit.Chase Daniel is the...
Darrelle Revis and the New England Patriots seem like a natural fit.Revis was a colossal bust with the New York Jets last season despite banking on a huge contract. He’s now available and a reunion with the Patriots isn’t the craziest thing about this week in March (not by a long shot).It’s why Ben Volin of the Boston Globe just brought it up:Don’t discount the return of...
