New York Jets news: NFL prohibition on player tryouts lifted (Report)

The NFL’s prohibition on player tryouts has been lifted, which is a huge piece of news for the New York Jets. The reason you—the rabid New York Jets fan—have not heard about any free agent tryouts at Florham Park over the last several weeks is simple and obvious.

Training camp is a place where we look forward to elite talents matching up directly; The unstoppable force versus the immovable object. However, with no team drills taking place and no media on hand to report on them anyway, let’s instead take a look at a different kind of object that doesn’t move.

If we were to put together a museum with some of the most notorious inanimate objects in team history, what could we choose? Here’s our top 10 in no...

Welcome to Coral.

Hello, all.

Today, we’ve launched our new commenting platform, Coral, on this site. You can try it out below, or on any article here.

As the pre-launch article said, we know it’s missing a few key pieces that might be important to you, and we’re continually evolving and improving it.

Just like when we launched the previous platform, on day one it wasn’t perfect (in fact, almost everyone told us they hated it), and so...

Welcome to the TAN, the infamous Thread About Nothing, Coral Reef Edition. For better or for worse, the powers that be at SBN have bestowed the Coral commenting system upon us, and for now that means no comments to the Fanposts. The Coral team is working on fixing that, but until the fix is in, the TAN is now on the front page. Yay(?!) We’ll keep this pinned right here until the Coral team works things out and we can migrate back to...

Changes Are Coming to GGN

Sometimes we are faced with changes. We don’t always have a say in them. We aren’t always happy with them. They don’t always seem fair, but that’s life. We have to deal with them.

Today SB Nation launches its new Coral comment system here on Gang Green Nation. I could use this space talking about how exciting this is and how many new features this system has, but let’s be real. That would be totally tone deaf and out of touch.

Jets Podcast: Running Back Preview

Photo by Brett Carlsen/Getty Images

Today on our podcast we continue the positional preview series for the Jets. Our focus is on running back.

The Jets made one of the biggest moves in the NFL last year signing Le’Veon Bell as a free agent, but it did not work out as the team expected. Whether it was due to poor offensive line play, scheme, the lingering impact of a year away from football, or Bell just not being the player he used to be, it was a disappointing year for the star.

Man and Zone Coverage Mixes

The other day we discussed how coverages frequently are more complex than simple man or zone labels. The truth is many defensive calls have some players with man to man responsibilities and others in zone on the same play.

Most analysts will tell you that the most common man to man coverage called for NFL defenses is Cover 1. Five defenders are assigned man to man against a receiver. There also is one defender whose job is to defend the deep middle zone...

ESPN rates Jets in the middle of the pack on young talent, but the future might be brighter

Photo by Gregory Fisher/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

ESPN ranked each roster in the NFL by talent 25 years old and younger.

The Jets ranked near the middle of the pack at 14 of 32.

Much of the positive was based on belief in Sam Darnold’s future.

Like all of the teams that drafted a quarterback in the top 10 of the 2018 draft, the Jets had to have hoped their franchise passer — Sam Darnold — would have progressed more than he has in two seasons. Darnold’s minus-20.4% DVOA and...
