Good morning, Gang Green Nation! I hope everyone’s having a great start to their day. Shout out to Mr. Wells holding down the fort as usual for the weekends, and due to a random power outage this FC will be coming you from a Denny’s right outside the NY capital. Something about Sam Darnold just makes everyone around him seep with confidence when talking about the young Jets QB. From coaches, fans, to newly acquired GM, everyone...

Report: Jets exploring trade market for CB upgrades

Despite their wealth of cap space this offseason, the Jets still have some apparent needs. One of those is cornerback. Trumaine Johnson leads the Jets’ corner group. Although the team appears to, at least to some extent, regret signing him to a five-year, $72.5M contract, he is by far the surest thing Gang Green has here. After Johnson, the Jets have Darryl Roberts and slot signee Brian Poole. Both are former part-time starters, and Rich Cimini of ESPN.com notes the Jets are indeed gauging...

Good morning, GGN, and happy Father’s Day! Here’s a puzzler for you: since Father’s Day is now marketed in many ads as “Dads and Grads”, why isn’t Mother’s Day marketed as “Moms and Proms”?

Father’s Day marks the beginning of the doldrums in the NFL, with little happening between now and training camp. Hopefully we will soon get the news Quinnen Williams and Chuma Edoga have signed. Outside of those soon to be signings, we’re looking at the occasional back of the...

Thoughts on the NFL Draft and team building

Ideas for success

The NFL Draft is the only way to supply your team with affordable talent while at the same time reshaping your team to be more successful. The trick is to find the talent (not busts) that will fit your style of play and enhance your team positively. This is easier said than done, and no team is perfect at drafting.

What some people don’t realize is that all college players need to develop their games to be able to play in the NFL. How well these players evolve will...

Good morning, GGN! OTAs are over, and now the dreaded summer doldrums begin. Six weeks will pass before the Jets gather again on the football field. Six weeks with very little going on in the football world. Six weeks for knuckleheads to get themselves into trouble, like they seem to do on an annual basis this time of year. We can only hope the Jets don’t have too many knuckleheaded incidents this year.

Jets podcast: Reflections on the year that was

This is the final week of five daily podcasts until the start of training camp. There will still be shows between now and then, but we will move to a summer schedule. In many ways the podcast year begins with the start of training camp and ends now, around the time the offseason program ends. What follows is the quietest time on the NFL calendar.

It has been a very trying year in many ways for the Jets. Training camp started with a holdout of the new franchise quarterback. While the team...

Bringing your daily links to the NFL’s New York Jets

Good morning, Jet fans! I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. Joe Douglas has made yet another move signing another cornerback for depth, in Mark Myers. Though these signings aren’t exactly eye opening, it should make some fringe players chosen by Mike Mac wary that they could be next on the chopping block. This is nothing new however, as many new GM’s will want their own fresh slate of bodies in place, rather than...

Todd McShay turns down Jets to remain with ESPN

Todd McShay is not going anywhere. McShay was in consideration for a personnel job with the New York Jets. The draft analyst’s colleague, Chris Mortensen, reported Thursday that McShay has removed himself from consideration for a job with the Jets to remain at ESPN. McShay’s name came up because he was a college teammate of Joe Douglas, who was just hired as the Jets’ new general manager. Douglas and McShay have known each other for around 25 years. McShay, 42, has been working as a...

Jets mailbag: What additions will the Jets make before the start of the season?

The Jets have their new general manager, and it is Thursday. To celebrate these events, today we have a podcast mailbag. Thanks as always to everybody who submitted questions.
