A two running back system is common in today’s NFL, but the New York Jets attempts at rotating three runners last season did not work.

Let’s get to the...

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Dumpster Fire

The New York Jets put on a pathetic display of football today in San Diego, losing 31-0. Statistically, this game is borderline incomprehensible, as their two quarterbacks combined to go 13/32 for 60 yards, their defense allowed 439 total yards, including 162 rushing (to San Diego’s 4th string running back!) and didn’t cross the 50 yard line until garbage time in the 4th quarter...

Jets OC takes blame for timeout that negated game-tying TD

Jets' backfield trio adds versatility to offense

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) Chris Johnson paused for a second to think about the last time he lined up in a wishbone-type formation. Three running backs. One backfield. Lots of problems for the defense. ''Probably high school,'' Johnson said smiling. Well, until last Sunday, when the New York Jets had him, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell in the backfield at the same time for a few plays...
