New York Jets could surprise this season

The New York Jets became a laughing stock last year as they limped to a 4-12 record. Part of it was because of injuries that decimated the secondary and part of it was because of the inconsistent play at quarterback. However, the Jets have certainly done a lot to try and change their perception for the 2015 season as they added big name players such as wide receiver Brandon Marshall...

Landing a player such as Decker was just the move they seemed to be looking for. But just how important to the Jets offense is Decker? Well, let’s take a look. Eric Decker has never, by any means been considered a deep ball threat to opposing defenses...

New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall is a unique character. Never one to shy away from speaking his mind, depending on who you listen to his mouth may have played a big part in his departure from Chicago (when it was really his injury history and contract). However he got to New York is immaterial of course. He is in the Big Apple and from the sound of things trying to make...

New York Jets Fantasy Projections: Wide Receivers

As a Jets fan playing fantasy football for the past 15 years, the general rule of thumb has always been “Thou Shalt Not Draft Jets Skill Players.” Sure, there have been a few exceptions---mainly at the running back position---but you have to go all the way back to 2003 to find a season in which the Jets had a receiver in the top 10 fantasy players at that position.That year,...

New York Jets among NFL’s best, minus quarterback

In today’s NFL, the quarterback is king.  Even more so than in the past, we judge an NFL roster by the quality of the quarterback.  He touches the ball more than anyone else, except for the referee. But what if we take out the quarterback for a minute?  What if we look at the rosters around the league, and see how they stack up at every position EXCEPT for the quarterback?  How...

New York Jets: Eric Decker is number one receiver caliber

There was a lot of debate within the Jets fan base last year regarding Eric Decker. Nobody had any question that the Jets needed Decker, but the debate went on over the value. Was Eric Decker really a “number one” receiver? Was his product solely from Peyton Manning throwing the ball, and Demariyus Thomas on the opposite side? Time to analyze a bit, and see how Decker really...

Houston Texans get the biggest steal of the 2015 NFL Draft (video)

This wide receiver is drawing comparisons to New York Jets’ receiver Eric Decker. It comes as a complete shock that the Texans were able to grab the 2014 All-Pac 12 selection. Former Sun Devil Jaelen Strong is powerful and explosive. Most thought he would go early in the second round and the Texans were fortunate enough to draft him. Does this look Eric Decker like?
