Todd Bowles names Josh McCown Jets starting QB

0 comments







As expected Jets head coach Todd Bowles named 37-year-old veteran Josh McCown the team's starting quarterback for Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills. McCown has only played in one series so far this preseason as Bowles has allowed youngsters Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg to duke it out to sort out the QB depth chart. Jets beat reporters questioned whether there was truly a quarterback competition at all and whether the starting gig was McCown's to use.

"No, it was even because we hadn’t played any games and obviously I wanted to see (Bryce Petty) and (Christian Hackenberg) play," admitted Bowles. "I’ve seen Josh (McCown) play and I was with Josh before and I know what he can do. I just wanted to see if the other ones will go ahead and step up and take the spot, but there was no starter going into training camp."

Petty outshined Hackenberg during the first three exhibition contests as the lights looked too bright for the second year gunslinger out of Penn State.

"It wasn’t disappointing," said Bowles of Hackenberg's performance. "Obviously (Christian) was the only one that hasn’t played in the regular season game either. The other two played in it so, they had a little more poise so, everything he was seeing, going out there against some great defenses the past two weeks, he saw for the first and second time but, he got better mentally and he got better in somethings to learn from so, it wasn’t disappointing. It was a learning experience."

With more than a decade of pro experience, McCown was the easy choice for Bowles given the quarterback's ability to grasp the offense.

Well, (Petty) and (Hackenberg) give the young players a chance to develop as well. Josh, from an experience stand point, knows more, but that’s not why we made him the starter. We put him to start because he gives us the best chance from his talent, he’s proven that this spring and this summer so, he gives us the best chance that way.

With the Jets on a endless quest to find a franchise quarterback, Bowles acknowledges that naming McCown the starter doesn't give him that designation by any stretch of the imagination.

"That’s kind of a strange question, but until we (go) 16-0, you have a franchise quarterback," Bowles stated flatly. "If you don’t, I guess you don’t."

With many "experts" predicting the Jets will flirt with a 0-16 record, at the very least they have a wiley veteran to command the huddle for the season opener when they take on Buffalo.

Madden 18 Official Review: (X-BOX ONE VERSION)


What’s New

GAMEPLAY STYLES




ARCADE:

In this action-packed mode, the hits are furious and turnovers aplenty as the referees swallow their whistles and users smash the hit stick with all their might. This play style is fun and addicting; geared toward the casual fan and designed to impress your friends with high-octane, non-stop action.

SIMULATION:
The steadfast NFL fan will enjoy the opportunity for an authentic game experience that accounts for team and player tendencies played under normal league rules. This is the quintessential Madden mode that is both the most enjoyable and challenging for franchise newcomers and veterans alike. Users are somewhat handcuffed by what caliber team they select and specifically the quarterback they pick, so choose wisely!

COMPETITIVE:
Let the best man win. EA decided to take away the majority of AI nonsense in favor of allowing users to face-off against each other in order to showcase their skills. Penalties are few and far between in this style which is best suited for ranked human to human online mode. Find out how you truly stack up against the competition.

GAME MECHANICS


Target Passing Mode:
Don’t worry the QB vision isn’t coming back, but this part of the gameplay seems a bit over-engineered. Using a combination of the left thumbstick and the LT button (L2 for PS4 version) users can lead receivers to a designated marker on the field. While in theory this would seem to be ideal, in live game action this is often an overlooked and forgotten aspect of the gameplay.

GAME MODES:


PLAY IT NOW:

New to the Madden Franchise, this simple, but brilliant add-on allows players to dive into a regular season NFL game in real-time. You can also resume your season in Franchise Mode and it will reflect all the current stats and records in the current NFL.



LONG SHOT:
EA’s new foray into a story-driven mode tries to make every NFL fan's dream a reality. Long Shot mode chronicles the story of a top high school football star out of Texas whose goal of turning pro falls short after his college years.



After enlisting in the army and spending three years out of football, Devin Wade, EA’s fictional character, follows his best friend’s advice and elects not to give up on his pursuit of a professional football career. After a superb performance at a Regional NFL Combine, Wade receives an unexpected offer and rediscovers his love for the game, but it doesn’t come without inherent challenges.

With his dreams coming true right before his very eyes, including become a reality TV star, Wade begins to buckle under the pressure and needs a trip home to help him get back on the right track. With the help of a legendary quarterback mentor, Wade is able to find his way back onto the top of the football world.

MUT SQUAD:

I know, I know. What does MUT stand for? Madden Ultimate Team, (of course you Maddenites out there already knew that) which is gaining popularity year by year. Users pick the best players from different teams and eras and earn coins by playing against the CPU or human players in a variety of challenges. This mode leaves no stones unturned as every facet of team building matters.



Online team play allows for 3-on-3 contests with unique roles for each player including: offensive captain, defensive captain and coach. Players have the ability to toggle between the three roles pre-snap and after the ball is snapped.

The game mode can actually be scary since you’re assembling a seemingly unstoppable team and have the ability to pick from the top talent pools in the world. Once you play MUT Squad it will be hard to go back to Play Now mode with Tyrod Taylor slinging the ball to Jordan Matthews. Sorry Bills Fans!


FRANCHISE MODE:

Every year the details are greater, the stakes are higher and the possibilities are endless. Madden 18 builds on an already robust mode with users obtaining the ability to customize everything from ticket prices to the price of concessions. Madden Franchise mode is truly in rare form in this version, so dive into one of the most in-depth and realistic game modes that exist on any platform today.

GAMEPLAY IMPROVEMENTS:
Tackling ballcarriers is now an achievable feat thanks to the new grabbing and reaching animations that give lineman and linebackers alike a chance to get their paws on shifty and smaller backs. The secondary AI saw a refresher with interceptions not as frequent as in past versions.

The revamped Ball Hawk mechanic encourages players to either attempt a ball swat or interception depending on the play.

The offensive playbooks have been expanded so get ready to go deep into the bag of tricks by selecting a bevy of plays, while players can make “coaching adjustments” in the playcall menu to counteract the CPU or Human opponents’ strategy.

OVERALL REVIEW:
Madden 18 is in a lot of ways a more polished and refined version of its predecessor. With revamped player models that closely resemble the top NFL stars, updated commentary and fresh beats that enhance the gameplay experience, the bar has truly been raised for this model franchise. Gameplay mechanics have been steadily improved whereby any errant throw isn’t automatically intercepted as was the case over the last few installments. Instead in Madden 18, passes are tipped and dropped more times than not by defensive backs.

The gameplay mechanics remain status quo, but this year’s iteration seems to strike a fair balance between offensive firepower and defensive playmaking.



While the Longshot mode is worth a play-through, the replay value is quite low since it’s anticlimactic once your redemption story is complete. EA incorporated its Frostbite engine which was ushered in with a great deal of hype and promise, and while the Longshot mode is entertaining, the story is somewhat predictable and animations tend to be exaggerated and not lifelike. Longshot was billed as an exciting addition to this storied franchise, but I can’t see it remaining a staple of the game for years to come.

Franchise Mode and MUT SQUAD more than make up for any deficiencies exhibited by Longshot Mode and will quickly command hours of your time and attention. The online team play in MUT SQUAD creates endless hours of fun with friends in a game that is otherwise difficult to play in co-op mode. The creation of three roles for Madden Ultimate Team makes for an interesting twist and enables users the chance to alternate between them from play to play which keeps the action fresh and frenzied.

Taking into consideration the subtle improvements in gameplay, the expanded MUT mode and the gold standard that has been set by Madden’s Franchise Mode, Madden 18 won’t disappoint and has a plethora of game modes and styles to entertain and challenge fans of all ages and playing experience.

Try your hand in PLAY IT NOW mode and dive right into to your favorite team’s gameday battle. Madden 18 truly has something for everyone; making it one of the most complete installments released in recent memory.


OVERALL SCORE: 9.3

Todd Bowles: 'Players have individual right to sit for Anthem'

3 comments




The racial riots that are taking place across the country are drawing reactions from all corners of the world. America is a nation divided on racial and political lines and it's an unsettling time to say the least. New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles was the latest high profile personality to speak out against the hatred and bigotry that still exists in our great nation.

When asked by Jets beat reporters his reaction to players protesting the state of the country by sitting for the National Anthem, Gang Green's head coach wholeheartedly supported an individual's right to express themselves.

"Well, it’s their individual right," said Bowles. "We don’t have a rulebook on what’s right to protest and not protest. "You don’t know those things until the course of time, whether it’s sitting for the Anthem, whether it’s raising your fist, whether it’s speaking out, whether it’s the Walk to Washington, who is to say who’s protest is good or bad? As a football team, politics and people are human – they’re part of it – so you can’t say what’s good or bad. I’m sure mostly everybody – I know I’m against racism, segregation and all that other stuff, but how do we come to an answer? I don’t have that answer. How do we come to a common ground? I don’t have that answer. It’s a hell of a debate and a hell of a topic. It needs to stop. I don’t have the answers to that, but who is to say who’s protest is good or bad? That’s just the way they feel and that’s their right to express it. On if he would discuss the topic of protests with his players… We’ve talked about it. We talk about current events all the time. It’s more than football with us. We talk about a lot of things. It’s a different topic – everybody has their own feelings about it. You can’t sway anybody one way or the other. We’re all grown men here, so that’s how people feel, that has nothing to do with what they do in practice and what they do on the field, but separately off the field they are going to feel the way they feel."

Colin Kaepernick's decision to sit for the National Anthem last season sent shockwaves throughout the country and ushered in a movement to take a stand against racism in the United States.

I'm appalled and disgusted by the racial-based violence transpiring, but veterans in this country sacrificed for our freedom and I think it's a sign of disrespect for those whose lives have been lost trying to make the world a better place. There has to be a more appropriate manner to demonstrate disapproval of today's racial climate and not honoring the country by sitting actually offends the exact people who risked their lives to secure ALL of our freedom.

My grandfather was a paratrooper in World War II and with only an eighth grade education he worked his way up to the rank of lieutenant. He was drafted into the army, and never drew a weapon in his life until his country came calling him.

So while Bowles is defending his players' right to make their own choices, I would urge players to find a way to bring to light the ugly episodes of racial violence that are taking place, while at the same time not disrespecting the honorable servicemen and servicewoman who are stationed at home and oversees to keep us all safe.

"We’ve talked about it," said Bowles of discussing racial riots with his team. "We talk about current events all the time. It’s more than football with us. We talk about a lot of things. It’s a different topic – everybody has their own feelings about it. You can’t sway anybody one way or the other. We’re all grown men here, so that’s how people feel, that has nothing to do with what they do in practice and what they do on the field, but separately off the field they are going to feel the way they feel."

Jets sign WR Kenbrell Thompkins

0 comments




The New York Jets announced the signing of WR Kenbrell Thompkins on Wednesday to bolster a receiving corps that has been under scrutiny for its lack of pro experience and production.

Thompkins appeared in 7 games during the 2015 season with the Jets recording 17 receptions for 165 yards. Many Jet fans will remember Thompkins dropping a deep pass from QB Ryan Fitzpatrick in the fourth quarter of the team's Week 17 loss to the Bills that knocked them out of postseason contention.

Thompkins joins a receiving group led by Robbie Anderson, Jalin Marshall, Charone Peake as well as tight end Austin Serafin-Jenkins. A former Cincinnati Bearcat, Thompkins will add some much needed NFL experience to a unit that is full of promising youngsters.

To make room on the roster for Thompskins, the Jets waived injured Safety Doug Middleton.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP INTENDS TO NOMINATE WOODY JOHNSON, NEW YORK JETS CHAIRMAN AND CEO, TO SERVE AS AMBASSADOR OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TO THE UNITED KINGDOM OF GREAT BRITAIN AND NORTHERN IRELAND

Christopher Johnson to take over as New York Jets Chairman and CEO subject to
Woody Johnson's nomination and Senate Confirmation

– The New York Jets confirmed today that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Woody Johnson, team owner, Chairman and CEO of the New York Jets to serve as Ambassador of the United States of America to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

If Woody Johnson is nominated and confirmed by the Senate, Christopher Johnson, his brother and an owner will become Chairman and CEO. In that role, Christopher will directly oversee all day-to-day team operations.

“The New York Jets have been an integral part of our family since 2000, but this is a unique opportunity for Woody. His patriotism and commitment to our country have always been a passion of his,” said Christopher Johnson. “Over the years, we have learned that ownership of the New York Jets is a special responsibility. Personally, if Woody is nominated and confirmed, I would be honored to oversee the organization, continuing to build a team on and off the field that our fans are proud of and deserve.”

"On behalf of the entire organization, we would be extremely proud to see Woody nominated and confirmed as U.S. Ambassador. We could not be more excited for him and his family," said New York Jets President Neil Glat.

Woody Johnson and his family purchased the NFL’s New York Jets on January 18, 2000. Woody, a fourth-generation member of the founding family of Johnson & Johnson, has built upon his family’s proud legacy of achievement as a successful businessman, civic leader and compassionate philanthropist.

Transcript: Jets head coach Todd Bowles

On if he thought the offense looked better today…
They were crisper today. It’s still give and take on both sides. (We are) just trying to get better.

On getting Bilal Powell back at practice…
It’s good to get his feet wet. You know he’s missed some time now so he’s got a lot of catching up to do but it’s good to see him out there.

On if there is any additional news on Lucky Whitehead’s injury…
Lucky broke his foot.

On if Whitehead will be out for the year…
I don’t know if he’s out for the year but I know he’s out for a little while.

On if the team will try and acquire a returner given Whitehead’s injury…
We still got a couple guys we want to look at and then as we get down in it, if we don’t see what we want we’ll look for one.

On if Whitehead needs surgery…
I’m not sure yet, they’re still checking him out.

On how long Whitehead will be out…
It’s still undetermined. They’re still checking him out.

On why Marquess Wilson didn’t practice…
He had a sore hip.

On Bilal Powell…
He had fresh legs, that’s the first thing, other than that he’s just got to get caught up to speed, just get used to the blocking schemes and everything else. But he was fresh so that’s about all he can do right now.

On the development of Dexter McDougle…
Well he’s a little more confident mentally as far as knowing what he’s doing and he’s finally trying to put a couple practices together and a game together, you just got to keep working.

On if practice ended early today…
They practiced pretty fast today so we got done early.

On if the early end was a reward for Saturday’s play…
No.

On if the team has made a point to keep a fast tempo and run a lot of plays in practice…
We try and get more plays in a short period of time and they can get their wind up and conditioning at the same time, (and at the) same time we keep the tempo going and they can concentrate.

On if the fast tempo is something they can carry into the preseason…
We’re going to try and get them going. At certain times we’ll do different things, but we’ll try and get them going faster.

On how enjoyable it’s been to coach Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye considering he was a former safety…
Well it’s been enjoyable to coach them all, but two rookies playing, they study, they work hard every day, they have some mistakes in practice, but they learn from their mistakes and it’s just good to see them because they’re good people as well.

On Coach John Morton’s statement that Christian Hackenberg is still a rookie in many ways…
It is because he’s getting a lot more reps (now). Last year, there were three quarterbacks ahead of him, so this year there’s only three in camp, so he’s getting a lot more reps right now (and) he’s getting to play for the first time really without running scout team cards so in that respect, yes.

On what Hackenberg is better at this year than he was last year…
I don’t know if he’s better at anything, he’s just learning the offense and having the whole spring and taking the reps more, he’s getting to play more and as he plays more everything becomes easier for him so he’s better mentally from that standpoint.

On if the way Hackenberg is playing now makes him glad he took the approach he did with Hackenberg last season…
It’s hard to get reps when there are three quarterbacks in front of you. I’m happy where he is right now and he’s getting to play, he’s learning it, he doesn’t make the same mistake too many times and he’s getting better from there.

On if he’s glad he “redshirted” Hackenberg last year…
He was going to redshirt with the guys we had last year regardless.

On how much more Josh McCown will play in the second preseason game…
Again, we haven’t discussed it yet. We will try and give him more than seven plays, but we haven’t discussed it yet.

On how often Leonard Williams, Sheldon Richardson, and Muhammad Wilkerson will be on the field at the same time this season…
We haven’t gotten in the game plan yet. Right now were just trying to play hard and come together as a unit. As we get into the game plan when the season comes we’ll see.

On how important it will be to get production from Williams, Richardson and Wilkerson…
Well it’s important to get production out of everybody. They just have to do their jobs and everybody else has to do theirs.

On if it might be more beneficial to play only two of them at a time…
Again, when we get into the game plan during the season we’ll discuss it. Right now, they’re just trying to get better, we haven’t even gotten into the game plan of playing people so that’s the last part on my mind.

On why he thinks McDougle is more confident…
He’s finally comfortable. He’s finally healthy first of all. He’s had some nicks the last couple of years that’s kept him off the field and he’s missed a significant amount of time. But now he’s back he’s healthy and he came in in great shape and its showing.

On if he has been happy with Darron Lee and Demario Davis’s coverage in the pass game…
They get good depth (on their drops). They’re still learning how to work together. They have great communication, so they just have to keep getting better.

FANS FAVORITE PODCAST

0 comments



Tune in Sunday night at 11PM as Rick Laughland and Daniel Feuerstein recap the New York Jets win over the Tennessee Titans at MetLife Stadium. With many fans expecting the Jets to be the worst team in football, Gang Green showed for at least one night that they could put a respectable product on the field. Let's not get carried away since this is just the preseason opener, but Todd Bowles' group seems to have turned the page from a disastrous year in 2016.

The record when it's all said and done might be worse than last season, but the fundamental mistakes that fans saw early in the preseason during last year's campaign were nowhere to be found this time around. The success of the 2017 season won't be measured by wins or losses, but by how a young group stays together and how the coaching staff evaluates the talent on the team that can be building blocks for the future.

QB Josh McCown has embraced the role as a mentor to both Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty as the duo try to establish themselves as viable options under center. Tune in throughout the Jets season to get the latest previews and reviews as we follow the Jets season from start to finish.

Jets stifle Titans 7-3 in Preseason Opener

0 comments


The New York Jets held the Tennessee Titans to 223 yards of total offense as Todd Bowles and company put on a defensive clinic on Friday night. TItans starter Marcus Mariota completed 2 of his 3 pass attempts for 15 yards as Gang Green's first team defense set the tone for the remainder of the defensive slug-fest. The Jets tallied eight sacks on the night including seven alone on back-up Alex Tanney who also tossed an interception to produce a paltry 41.0 QB rating.

New York didn't exactly put on an offensive showcase aside from starter Josh McCown looking sharp during the opening drive as he marched the Jets downfield for their only score of the game by connecting with WR Charone Peake for a 4-yard touchdown pass. Robbie Anderson led the way for New York on the receiving end amassing 71 yards on 3 receptions with a long catch of 53 yards. New York's ground game was virtually non-existent with RB Jordan Todman producing 20 yards on 8 carries, while RB Romar Morris also led the way in rushing with 20 yards on 12 touches.

Between backups Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty, the former Penn State Nittany Lion standout had a more productive night completing 18 of 25 attempts, but did cough up a fumble in the contest. Petty's time was limited, but he didn't show much to impress the coaching staff and solidify his place on the depth chart.

The Jets defense had a few blown assignments most notably surrendering a 40-yard scamper to Titans RB Akeem Judd, but the upstart unit was flying around the field and looked much better prepared and cohesive than last year's unit did in its preseason opener.

Gang Green will travel to Detroit next Saturday night to take on the Lions at Ford Field with kickoff slated for 7:30PM E.T.
