New York Jets: Red-Zone Hell

The New York Jets were putrid in the red-zone during the 2014 season. With a touchdown scoring percentage of 36.17%, they were dead last in the NFL.

It's now or never for Jeff Cumberland

New York Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland is an athletic tight end as he stands at 6'4" and 260 pounds while running and 4.45 40-yard dash time. For five seasons the Jets have hoped that Cumberland would have evolved into a dangerous threat in the middle of the field for the offense.  Unfortunately, the Jets' patience with Cumberland could be growing thin. Last season, Cumberland...

New York Jets Fantasy Projections: Tight Ends

Teams with shaky passing games generally don’t get much production from their tight ends. Whether it’s quarterback play holding back offensive statistics as a whole or iffy offensive play keeping tight ends in to block more often, it’s hard to get high-level tight end production from a below-average offense. Unfortunately for the Jets, that’s what they’ve been the past...

New York Jets' Tight Ends Key To Offense In 2015

As a former tight end I love the spotlight now cast on the position. Yards and points being generated from a position formally considered to be a more athletic offensive lineman is a huge advantage for NFL offenses. Pass catching ability for tight ends has never been more important, yet an ability to block, and block really well can make or break a running game. Enter the New York...

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Resemble NFL Team…But Still Lose

The New York Jets found another way to lose, falling 30-24 in overtime to the Minnesota Vikings. Burned again on the blitz and by poor tackling, Jarius Wright took a screen pass 87 yards for the game winning touchdown. They are now 2-11 and looking very much like a team who will be picking in the top 5 this May. Today wasn’t an awful effort but turnovers, red zone failures and...
