Before we get to the regular season, I wanted to take a look at some 2012 film of the Jets’ Offensive Line to see what is returning this year and to see what the Jets may have lost from 2012. During the regular season, I will be running a weekly column where I will grade out the offensive line’s individual performances. Unlike Pro Football Focus, I am going to grade the line from as much of a coach’s perspective as I can. This means that I will base my grades on technique and assignment in addition to play result. For the second part of the film study, let’s see what we found out about starting Right Tackle Austin Howard. To see how players are graded check out the first part of the series on D’Brickashaw Ferguson.
Total Plays: 200
Penalties/Major Mistakes: 2
Blown Assignments: 44
Correct Assign/Tech: 149
Positive Impact: 5
Big Play: 0
Final Grade: 77%
Average Grade: -0.22
Of the five starting offensive linemen, Austin Howard graded out the lowest. A ...

Keith Olbermann made his unnecessary return to TV yesterday, opening “Olbermann Live” with an "As I was saying..." intro. And then he went and said what every sports blogger and, specifically, Boomer & Carton have been saying for years. Manish Mehta is a dope who makes up anonymous sources followed up by dropping plausible stories. He said it this way (transcribed...
Florham Park, NJ - The Jets are being quiet these days. Soft spoken Mike Goodson, who returned to the team facility today after being away for the past month "handling some personal stuff,' stayed in line with the approach, keeping it short and sweet with the media.Goodson prefers to forgo the blah, blah, blah with his teammates as well. " work real hard and earn the...
The New York Jets high brass decidedly gave Geno Smith the keys to the starting job this past weekend, but all he did was prove how unready he truly is for the game at the professional level.
Head coach Rex Ryan kept Smith in the game for more than three-quarters – the time traditionally given for the Week One starter – and thereafter inserted incumbent Mark Sanchez for the remainder...
With most of the starters getting the night off, including quarterbacks Geno Smith and Mark Sanchez, the Jets won the "Back-up Bowl," 27-20, on Thursday night against the Philadelphia Eagles at MetLife Stadium.A rough first series aside, quarterback Matt Simms did a lot to improve his roster stock against the Eagles' back-ups, going 33-44 with 285 yards, the most by...
Joe Namath is the only link the New York Jets have to any form of championship or Super Bowl conversation.
Namath and the Jets aren’t on the best of terms, and the New York legend doesn’t have a rhyme or reason for it. During an appearance on the Rich Eisen podcast, Namath said his “relationship with the Jets is clumsy and awkward right now.”
“Clumsy, awkward. Expressing...
A report says the Jets have signed Graham Harrell, who was recently cut by the Green Bay Packers in favor of Vince Young.
BY NICK ST. DENISJoe McKnight saw his fate. Mike Goodson probably did, too.Hours after McKnight was released from the New York Jets Monday, the NFL announced Goodson will serve a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.But unlike McKnight, Goodson remained a Jet through the day.The Jets' running backs situation looked a bit muddled just a week...
Braylon Edwards is now on the market after being cut by the New York Jets, but he’s likely going to garner significant interest from a number of teams around the league. Although he’s a chronic under-achiever in the NFL, he’s still good enough to improve many rosters around the league, and frankly, his services probably won’t be very expensive.
When the Jets brought Edwards...
Fairly soon, it’s going to be quicker to list the people who haven’t weighed in on Sanchezgate than those who have.
New York Daily News columnist Mike Lupica became the latest to pipe up on Tuesday, responding to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie‘s harsh words about Jets beat writer Manish Mehta in a radio interview on Monday. Mehta, Lupica’s colleague at the Daily News, was...
This letter was written to Rex Ryan from Valentina, a stripper from Rick’s Cabaret and the ‘dancer’ makes some valid points about the Jets QB situation. See the letter below and H/T to FoxSports for the scoop:
Dear Rex, Can you please give Geno Smith another chance? I know he messed up by throwing three INTs against the Giants, and yes, it was really bad when he stepped out...
The New York Jets quarterback controversy took another turn as the team signed Graham Harrell. Harrell was released by the Packers after losing out on the backup job behind Aaron Rodgers. He was 23 for 42 with 169 yards and an interception in three preseason games for Green Bay.
With Mark Sanchez’s health in question and uncertainty around Geno Smith, the addition of Harrell makes...
According to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports, the New York Jets have signed former Packers quarterback Graham Harrell.
Exclusive to @FOXSports: Former @Packers QB Graham Harrell agreed to contract terms with @NYJets, according to a source. Reporting on Weds

With Sanchez hurt, Harrell may end up playing in the Jets preseason finale on Thursday...
The New York Jets have agreed to terms with former Packers backup Graham Harrell as first reported by Fox Sports. Harrell spent 3 years as Aaron Rodgers’ backup before being pushed to the side for Vince Young this preseason.
It remains to be seen if the Jets actually have a plan for Harrell, well let’s be honest when do the Jets have a plan? Or if this is just a depth signing...
Last night Matt Falkenbury from DailyStache.net and the Jets Press Coverage Podcast with John Presser, stopped by to talk mostly New York Jets football and at the end of the show, Breaking Bad. We had technical difficulties for the first 20 seconds or so. So if you don’t hear anything at the beginning, don’t worry. Baggy Dizzle and Manny helped Earl co-pilot the show, along...
