New York Jets Draft Quinton Coples

With Melvin Ingram, Chandler Jones, Courtney Upshaw and David DeCastro still on the board. The New York Jets continued their perplexing off-season by selecting North Carolina defensive end Quinton Coples. Of all the pass rushers on the board, Coples had the most question marks about him and does not have the versatility to play major reps at outside linebacker. Both Mike Tannenbaum...

New York Jets select Stephen Hill, Grade A

The New York Jets needed to upgrade their receiving corps, and they got a guy who can make an impact immediately and who also has a ton of upside. Stephen Hill has the potential to be an immediate deep threat, and should play a role very similar to the one Torrey Smith played in Balitmore as a rookie last year. Like Smith, Hill has a long way to go before he’s a polished product...

2012 NFL Draft: New York Jets Roll The Dice On Coples

The Jets drafted one of the biggest question marks in the draft with their first pick—Quinton Coples.  Physically, Coples is a beast.  He’s fast and huge and he does, of course, have the potential to be a solid player in the NFL.  However, he’s not a great fit for Gang Green and he’s too much of a risk at Pick 16.  Despite his size and speed, Coples, isn’t always too...

The New York Jets Twitter Account Congratulated Every Other Team On Their Picks Last Night! Even the Pats!

This is despicable! Who ever was responsible for tweeting out congratulations last night to each and every NFL team on their draft pick should be locked in a cold basement with only a keg and a sleeping-bag for 3 nights.  The tweet that seems that sticks out as the most horrid is the one to the Patriots.  Why would you even acknowledge anything that your biggest rival does? ...

Tim Tebow Spells R.I.P.For The J-E-T’s Season

Trading for Tim Tebow was purely a football move…just like Kim Kardashian marrying Kris Humphries was purely for love. This is the notion that Jets brass has been trying to sell football fans for weeks, but no one’s buying it. What Gang Green fans are buying however, is a multitude of “15” jerseys and those hallowed PSL’s – which is exactly why this trade was made in...

Rex Ryan in Same Coaching Class As Bill Belichick

Bill Belichick vs. Rex Ryan who is really better?   Ok so I wrote this because I’m getting tired of everyone saying how bad of a coach Rex Ryan is. So I thought who better to compare him to then the best Head Coach in the NFL. I’m going to go over quite a few things  such as regular season wins, playoffs wins, and how both coaches made it to where they are at today. I will...
