Let’s take a look at the New York Jets

Well, what can I say about the 2020 New York Jets. They suck, real bad. Adam Gase is sat on a flipping hot plate right now, and should be gone at the end of the season, please keep him NYJ! The Jets currently sit at 0-5, and are on course to land the Number 1 draft pick if they keep at this form.

In the week they cut former All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell after less than two seasons, that massive free agency signing clearly didn’t work. Our Miami Dolphins actually did reach out to Bell, to try and add another piece to Chan Gailey’s O. He instead opted to sign for the Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs.

Alongside Bell, the New York Jets will be without their 2018 third overall selection in Quarterback, Sam Darnold. The Jets gave up a house fire to move up to take Darnold under an old regime, and may be willing to pull the plug already in a bid to land Clemson QB, Trevor Lawrence.

In his place comes Joe Flacco, who is actually 7-0 against the Miami Dolphins from his stint as the starting QB of the Baltimore Ravens. Flacco is 4-0 when facing us on the road, whilst also having a 71.8% completion rate and a 109.4 passer rating for his career vs the Dolphins. Surely he can’t snatch another.

Last weekend vs the Arizona Cardinals, Flacco completed 18 of 33 passes for 195 yards and a touchdown off of neck surgery. That won’t be good enough to beat the Miami Dolphins. He does however have a pretty decent offensive line protecting him.

Guards Alex Lewis and Greg Van Roten are both within the top 30 rated guards on PFF, whilst Mekhi Becton is ranked 29th of all offensive tackles. He will most likely not be suiting up on Sunday however, as he is doubtful with a shoulder injury. In to take his place will be their 6th offensive lineman in Chuma Edoga who is looking like a stud. He is the New York Jets’ highest-graded offensive player (81.0) and is ranked 11th of all OT’s

The real threat on the Jets offense though is obviously Jamison Crowder. A player who in Washington I wasn’t high on, he has however turned into one of the best slot receivers in the league since playing for the New York Jets. He has a PFF total offense grade of 80.2 which places Crowder 11th amongst all receivers. So far this year, he’s caught 22 of 33 balls for 335 yards and 2 TD’s.

As for defense, their cornerback unit have had a pretty good start to the year. Pierre Desir is tied for the league lead in interceptions with 3, along with our Xavien Howard, and Kendall Fuller and Carlton Davis of Washington and Tampa Bay respectively. Desir isn’t all either, Brian Poole is the 9th graded corner on Pro Football Focus, with a score of 78.3

The New York Jets linebackers are also graded pretty highly by PFF. Former Dolphin Neville Hewitt is 15th among all LBers, whilst teammate Avery Williamson is just above in 14th. Just imagine how good that unit could be with CJ Mosley in it.

That’s it for the New York Jets Opponent Profile, it won’t be an easy win whatsoever. If we can start fast and get out in front I’m certain the Dolphins will beat the New York Jets.
