New York Jets Positional Roster Review: Wide Receivers

Thanks to some magic---Magic Mike Maccagnan that is---the Jets have gone from one of the worst receiving corps. in the NFL to one of the best. To be fair, GM John Idzik also deserves some credit for catalyzing the transformation, when he signed Eric Decker back in March of 2014. However, with Decker hobbled by an injured hamstring for most of the season last year, his performance...

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

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...

Eric Decker: Tebow can create own role in Eagles offense

New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker knows a thing or two about working with his former teammate, Tim Tebow. With the NFL being on the verge of possibly changing up the PAT rule, there could be more opportunities for someone of Tebow’s ilk to hammer out a role on offense. Speaking about his former teammate in Denver, Decker emphasized Tebow’s athletic ability and physical...

3 Jets Veterans Affected By the Draft

1. Muhammed Wilkerson View image | gettyimages.com Wilkerson was pegged as a guy the Jets could have moved for draft picks during the period where pre-draft rumors are present.  This suspicion heightened when the Jets took a player who was not nearly a need for the team.  Sheldon Richardson, Damon Harrison, and Muhammed Wilkerson are an epic defensive line.  It’s hard...

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? Or better...

Winners and losers from Day 1 of the 2015 NFL Draft

Day 1 of the 2015 NFL Draft was one of the more predictable drafts in recent memory. The top two quarterbacks were off the board after the first two picks, and up until the mid teens, there were still several people with almost perfect mock drafts. So looking back on Day 1 and heading into Day 2, who are the winners, and who are the losers? Winner: Dallas Cowboys – CB Byron...

Kevin White would look very good in New York Jets Green

Former West Virginia Mountaineer Kevin White arguably had the best overall combine in 2015. The 6’3″ 212 lb receiver hailing from Plainfield, New Jersey, would be a great fit if he were to come home and play in the New York Jets’ offensive system. After a phenomenal senior year in which he posted 1,447 receiving yards and had 109 receptions, White cemented his draft status...

New York Jets Middle Round Quarterback Options in Draft

Breaking down how the Jets should approach this draft from a quarterback standpoint is rather tricky. At first glance, it appears QB should be their top priority. This is why---until his recent rise up the draft board---so many mock drafters have had Marcus Mariota going to Gang Green with the sixth pick. On the surface, this makes sense: the Jets had absolutely awful quarterback...

Report: New York Jets could go wide receiver at No. 6, shake up draft

The New York Jets No. 6 pick in the draft is one of the most talked about selections. Could they take Marcus Mariota? Absolutely. Could they go defense? No doubt. Is this pick possibly just a trade chip? Sure. This, though, seems like a new possibility. Would the #Jets going WR at No. 6 be a surprise?
