We've activated WR Jamison Crowder.

Crowder was on the Reserve/COVID-19 list and missed the opener against the Carolina Panthers.

This will be a different type of season for Crowder. The last few years he had been the primary target in the passing game. With Corey Davis around and a deep receiver room, Crowder will...

After losing heartbreakingly last week, the New England Patriots look to get back on track this week. On paper, this week’s matching against the Jets might look like an easy win, but that is not the case.

It’s More Than the Offensive Line

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets offensive line was the team’s worst unit in the the opening loss to the Carolina Panthers. This game was lost in the trenches to a large extent. I gave right tackle George Fant my anti-game ball for Week 1, and I stand by it. The entire offensive line could have easily earned the dubious honor. The game was a blooper reel of whiffed blocks and failed assignments up front.

However, this was a team-wide effort. Some of the missed blocking...

Report: Mims Situation “Dicey” according to Cimini

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

As the Jets failed to muster any offense of note in the first half on Sunday, 2nd-year wideout Denzel Mims could only watch from the sideline.

Fans were hugely optimistic about the former Baylor Bear heading into the 2021 season, with plenty of support and a new QB that was willing to push the ball downfield, many expected a breakout season, and many still do.

Through camp, there were worrying signs. Mims was nowhere to be seen when the first team...

Jets Injury Report: Cole Expected Back

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Now we’ve put the disappointment of an opening day defeat behind us, it’s time to look forward to the home opener against the New England Patriots this weekend.

There were a lot of positives from Sunday, the defensive backs played well, Zach looked comfortable, Corey Davis was everything advertised. But there were also some big negatives, most notably the offensive line and our pass blocking in general (looking at you TE’s and RB’s).

There is...

Jets System Primer: Preventing Big Plays

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

This is the first article in a new series detailing key elements of the systems the Jets run. The articles will appear on an irregular schedule based on events that deserve closer examination.

One of the biggest influences on Robert Saleh through his rise as a defensive coach in the NFL has been Pete Carroll. Saleh worked an entry level job for Carroll as a Seahawks defensive quality control coach from 2011 through 2013. His tenure coincided with the rise...

The New York Jets Top All-Time Player

Joe Willey

We are down to the ultimate Jet, the one who above all others was the difference maker for the franchise. The player who personifies the Jets, Jets culture, the team standard bearer. An imperfect human who intrigued fans in numerous ways and brought the Jets to near iconic status with an improbable, franchise and league changing win.

There will be those out there that will disagree with me on this choice. That’s okay, everyone has an opinion. Yet when you look at...

We’re now a couple days removed from the Jets Week 1 loss to the Carolina Panthers, and fans have already started voicing displeasure with the team.
