NFL Preview 2019: New York Jets
The New York Jets are preparing to start the season 2019 with a number of improvements, both with regard to the roster and the coaching staff, both with regard to the new uniforms supplied, and ambitions completely different compared to last year. The season 2018 is, in fact, been the lean of the consolations, with a record of 4-12, worse than the previous year, where the victories were five, and the consequent last place in the AFC East and second-to-last in the conference that led to the dismissal of Todd Bowles.
The only happy notes were the development of Sam Darnold, the third pick in the draft, 2018, TE Chris Herndon, and safety Jamal Adams. The young Qb, in fact, in the last six games has reported six touchdown passes against only one interception, proving over time huge improvements in the readings. Herndon, from its side, ended the season with 4 touchdowns, 39 reviews, and 502 yards receiving. Adams, however, is confirmed as one of the best safety in the league, both in pass coverage and in blitz to put pressure on the Qb and opponents. Big disappointment instead, especially considering the money spent to engage him, it was the CB ex-Rams Trumaine Johnson, author of a season really subdued.
The attack of the gang green last season was very little stuff. Sam Darnold, in fact, has had to deal with a Or Line among the worst in the league, and to overcome this problem has been hired Kalechi Osemele, one of the best guards in the league, provided that it is not of epic proportions from the injuries that in the most recent vintages in Oakland have reduced the candidates. Lost Isahia Crowell, came what is perhaps the best Rb in the circulation, that is to say, the histrionic commanded her Veon Bell player skilled in racing, but also in the receptions, which will offer a Darnold a target of the first order. Another arrow in the bow of the young Qb will also Crowder, superb receiver out of the slot coming from the Washington Redskins. Icing on the cake was the signing of former Carolina Panthers ' Ryan Kalil, who had backtracked on his retirement to join the team of Gang Green. The Draft for the attack are statipoi selected the OT Chuma Edoga on the third lap, and the intriguing Te Trevon Wesco, selected in the fourth round.In compensation, however, have been assigned to Andre Roberts, great ritornatore , hired by the Buffalo Bills, and Jermaine Kearse finished in Detroit.
The defense of the New York Jets was without a shadow of a doubt, the true weak link of the franchise in new york and the front office has worked to improve it significantly. The two large grafts are, in fact, been Quinnen Williams with the third overall pick of the Draft, and Cj Mosley, released luxury from Baltimore. Mosley has signed a five-year, $ 85 million, and it is a linebacker skilled both in the intercept of the oval in addition to carry out the blitz and, of course, to stop the racing opponents. Quinnen Williams, however, was one of the prospects, most interesting in the Draft, and it is almost certain that teamed with Leonard Williams, will give the Jets a pair of Dt's the best of the league. In two years with Alabama in fact, the giant Williams has made sacks and 91 tackles, proving to be an impenetrable wall for the Rb opponents, and earning the national champion in 2017.
As already said, the year 2018 was closed with the release of Todd Bowles, with the guru defensive landed in Tampa as coordinator of the defense, a role perhaps best suited to him than the head coach. In its place came a little’ surprise, the coach of the Miami Dolphins Adam Gase after an exhausting soap opera that saw the former head coach of Green Bay, Mike Mccharty as the next head coach of the New York. Gase is known to be a great developer of Qb and it is evident how he has been hired to ensure a total and definitive explosion of the young Darnold. The new head coach has, in fact, a great job done with Peyton Manning in Denver, when he handed over to the veteran from Indianapolis, the second youth, which culminated in a victory at the Super Bowl. Besides Manning, however, Adam Gase has worked very well in Miami (a record of 23-25 and a qualification to the playoffs in three years) with Ryan Tannehill.
Another important new entry in the coaching staff of the New York Jets was Gregg Williams, from Cleveland, where as head coach the interim has resulted in a record of 5 wins and 3 losses, to serve as the coordinator of the defense. Williams has been a great buy, given that we are talking about a coach that has won a Super Bowl with the Saints, has great tactical nous and defensive patterns are not easy to read. The Jets are preparing, therefore, face their sixtieth season with several innovations and are a team that is extremely difficult to analyze and which to predict the outcome given that they may very well qualify for the playoffs if the machine is turned, as no. To Gase on the task to reverse the course of the last vintages with no success for a team historically unfortunate but eager to win and convince.
