ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 06:05 PM) I'm loving all these additions to the JETS coaching staff
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 06:06 PM) I can't wait to see what Maccagnan does in Free Agency and in the draft

The Jets are hiring Bears nat'l scout Rex Hogan as their director of college scouting. Chicago has released him from his contract

The Jets are also hiring Rams scout Brian Heimerdinger to a prominent front-office role. St. Louis let him out of his deal.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 07:48 PM) Heimerdinger is our director of player personnel now
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:12 PM) That is Mike Heimerdinger's son who used to be our OC in 05
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:12 PM) hopefully his son isn't as horrible as his pop was at play calling
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:17 PM) Everyone looks like a bad playcaller when you have no QB and have no talent
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:18 PM) When Heimerdinger was our OC it was when we had a ton of injuries on offense, were down to our 4th or 5th string QB
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:42 PM) FIRE HOGAN
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:42 PM) FIRE HEIMERDINGER
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:47 PM) STFU Harlem you are f***ing getting real annoying with this FIRE bullshit
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 09:13 PM) I thought you didn't pay attention to me
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 09:14 PM) You aaaaaare the wind beneath my wiiiiiiiiiings
a1elbow2.0 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 09:33 PM) I wonder if any possible new members come here, see no new posts for days and these about box conversations and wonder how the f*** this site is operational

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (25 January 2015 - 05:20 PM) Looks like we are having a blizzard the next 2 days over here.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (25 January 2015 - 06:50 PM) My boss still said to come in lol
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (25 January 2015 - 06:50 PM) Possibility for midday dismissal though

azjetfan Icon : (26 January 2015 - 05:36 PM) this site has become dismal.
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 January 2015 - 06:47 PM) Thanks Obama.
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 January 2015 - 06:49 PM) But really for all of you complaining about the site. What is there to talk about? We have a new GM and HC that we don't know how good or bad they'll be yet. So there really isn't much to talk about with the draft still months away.
azjetfan Icon : (26 January 2015 - 09:59 PM) Even I can't blame Obama :drinks:
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 11:42 PM) It could be worse
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 11:42 PM) we could be Phinzrage
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 11:43 PM) We got nothing to talk about
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 09:43 AM) HIRE MR JET
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:17 AM) There are some good OGs available in FA, we have to sign one
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:18 AM) Willie Colon was rated as one of the worst in football last season. So was Winters. Oday shows promise
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:18 AM) Orlando Franklin, Mike Iupati, Clint Boling. Should sign one
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 12:34 PM) Franklin or Iupati would be great
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 01:46 PM) hey reg how did you make out in this storm?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 01:47 PM) we got slammed with snow but the wind didn't knock out our power so I made out pretty unscathed here in RI
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 January 2015 - 01:14 PM) What sucks is that the NFL isn't going to throw the book at those CHEATS even though they may be found GUILTY
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 January 2015 - 08:54 PM) This place is a GHOST TOWN
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:24 AM) Nothing really to talk about in the offseason
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:20 PM) Rex bashed Idzik in a interview today lol
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:21 PM) Says Woody didn't want to fire him but had to because of 4 wins. That Idzik had hidden agendas and a plan that never worked.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:26 PM) I expect FA is going to be busy for us, I think public pressure forces them to make a splash because Maccagnan has to prove hes no Idzik and lose out on most FAs. We also have a lot of holes and could fix some with signings

Ways the Jets can improve
October, 20, 2010 Oct 202:50PM ETEmail Print Comments By Rich CiminiBack when he was coaching the New York Jets, Bill Parcells used to say, "If you're not getting better, you're getting worse." (I can't swear to this, but I think he may have uttered that expression when he benched Neil O'Donnell in 1997 even though the team was 6-3.) The point is, the current Jets, despite a league-best 5-1 record, have areas in which they need to improve.

Most teams use the bye week to get back to basics, concentrating on deficiencies, but Rex Ryan gave the team a six-day vacation. To each his own.

Here are some areas that need to be addressed:

The passing game. Mark Sanchez has dramatically reduced his interception total, but his accuracy still isn't where it needs to be. His completion rate is 55.4%, up from last season's 53.8%, but it should be at least 60%, especially when you consider he's throwing more often to his check-down receivers.

Sanchez' average-per-attempt is an anemic 6.2 (down from 6.7), which ranks 29th in the league. Things should improve as WR Santonio Holmes continues to settle in, but it makes you scratch your head as to why the passing game isn't more productive, considering Sanchez' overall improvement and the talent level.

Pass defense. Some major slippage here. The Jets were No. 1 last season in pass defense, but they're currently in the No. 22 spot (229 yards per game). They already have allowed 10 touchdown passes, two more than last season.

Can Darrelle Revis' hamstring injury be blamed for that much of a drop? I don't think so. The defense isn't generating enough pressure on quarterbacks, as the blitz package doesn't seem as effective as last season. Instability in the secondary also has hurt. There was a change in free safeties (Eric Smith to Brodney Pool), and they've been mixing and matching in the nickel and dime. Rookie CB Kyle Wilson is off to a slow start, and that isn't helping.

Third-down defense. Ryan predicts they will lead the league in this category, but they've got a ways to go. Their conversion rate is 42%, which ranks 25th in the league. What's up with that? A year ago, the Jets were deadly on third down, holding opponents to 31.5%.

What makes this season's decline so pronounced is that they've actually been doing a good job on first and second down, putting opponents in many third-and-long situations. Ordinarily, that's money time for Ryan's defense, but the lack of consistent pressure and breakdowns in the secondary have conspired to hurt them in those situations.

Red-zone offense. The Jets have scored nine touchdowns on 19 trips inside the 20, a 47% success rate (19th in the league). It has worked out nicely for Nick Folk, who is kicking a ton of field goals and leads all kickers in scoring, but the offense needs to become more efficient. Again, the lack of production is puzzling because the talent is there. Ill-timed penalties have hurt in the red zone.

Two-minute defense. In five of six games, the Jets have allowed a score in the final two minutes of the first half -- three touchdowns and two field goals, to be exact. Attributing to problem to communication problems in the secondary, the defensive backs started wearing play-sheet wristbands in Week 3. It has helped ... a little.

how about looking at his average per completion instead?

Sanchez 11.22
Peyton manning 11.20
Drew Brees 10.26

His numbers look good there. he goes deep alot and that's why his completion% is low and a low comp% also means a low YPA. I don't think its any cause for concern

With out being anal like jetsfan115 I'd say that to compare this teams stats last year to this years stats is irrelevant . we played to our strengths while this year we have new strengths and we are not playing all the same teams from last year.we don't and won't be as great a defense this year as last year because there are to many variables to do so. i don't think we will back into the playoffs this year do you? Our offense has all the tools to step up our production as the season progresses and it will afford our defense to recoup its dominance because of the success the offense should enjoy so then the stats will creep up in the rankings but remember that the WINs trumps all stats.
