New York Jets – Natural Regression

A while back we talked about potential break out candidates for the New York Jets. Just as these players experience a meteoric rises, there are numerous players who experience equally drastic falls from grace. While many of these players will likely remain stout or even improve, some regression to the mean has to be accounted for. It is a sad reality but one worth addressing when...

Chris Ivory could be preserved or ticked off getting fewer carries

How the Jets split the carries among their running backs is going to be one of the biggest stories of the early season. They signed Chris Johnson in April and have said they will use a committee approach with Ivory, Johnson and Bilal Powell. But what happens if Johnson shows his old form? Will they really take him off the field? Ivory showed what he could do when healthy last year...

The state of the New York Jets’ running backs

If there’s one thing the Jets could lean on while moving down the field, it was the running game. And while that was in large part due to the ineptitude we constantly saw at the quarterback position, it’s also in no small part because of the talent on the roster. By season’s end, the Jets found roles for each of their backs, and weren’t afraid to use the hot hand when needed...

Top 10 free agent running backs for the New York Jets

As much as the Jets offense may have struggled at times throughout 2013, the running game was never really an issue. Sure, there were times when they couldn’t move the ball through the air. And there were times when the offensive line became more holy than the Pope, himself. But the running game tended to work. Chris Ivory finished the season with 833 yards and a 4.6 yards-per...

Where do the Jets go from here at running back?

Running back just isn’t a priority for the New York Jets. With glaring issues in the secondary, at wide receiver, at tight end and outside linebacker, it’s hard to imagine Gang Green targeting the offensive backfield in either the early part of free agency or the first few rounds of the draft. Incumbent 1a-1b backs Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell are still under contract, as is...
