- The $8.1 Million Salary Cap Space Fallacy
Thanks to Mike Florio and Pro-Football-Talk there is a fallacy running around that the Jets have $8.1 million in cap space to use for the 2012 season. Even though the September 3rd Florio article had a disclaimer which explained his numbers only included 51 players, not 53 and injured reserve (IR) cost which would count [...]

- Drive of the Game: Jets vs. 49ers
In a scoreless game, San Francisco started at its own 32-yard-line with 3:04 left in the first. Three straight runs put the 49ers at midfield before Alex Smith hit Mario Manningham for 28 yards to set up San Francisco in Jets’ territory and threaten to put up the first points of the game.
The Jets forced San Francisco into a 3rd-and-6 at the Jets’ 7-yard line and San Francisco pulled out an unique play to get the score. The 49ers brought in backup quarterback Colin Kaeprnick.
- 5 Plays: Jets vs. 49ers
Here are the five key plays from Sunday’s 34-0 loss in chronological order.
1. WILDCAT: San Francisco faced a 3rd-and-6 at the Jets’ 7-yard-line in a scoreless game early in the second quarter. San Francisco inserted backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick for their read-option offense. He beautifully executed a sweep to the left to score a touchdown and give the 49ers the only points they would need on the afternoon.
2. TEBOW: Tim Tebow threw his first pass of the season — and it led to a turnover.

- JetNation – Week 4 Power Rankings
Here’s the updated JetNation top ten power rankings: 10) Arizona Cardinals: Lucky to come away with a win at home against a poor Dolphins team. Offensive line couldn’t protect the Cardinal’s QB Kevin Kolb allowing Miami to sack him 8 times. 9) New York Giants: Eli came up short, for once, or was that Lawrence Tynes? [...]
- Jets cut Epps, good sign for Keller
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Dedrick Epps might be the answer to a trivia question one day: He caught Tim Tebow’s first pass with the Jets. It didn’t do him much good, though, as Epps was waived Monday with a knee injury.
The Jets needed a roster spot to make room for newly-signed CB Aaron Berry. They might have cut Epps anyway, though, because starting TE Dustin Keller appears ready to return from a hamstring injury. Thing is, now they have to pay Epps, because he suffered a knee injury Sunday on his 9-yard reception — a play on which he fumbled the ball away to the 49ers.

In preparation for my weekly JetNation.com submission I usually stay up late, watch the game one more time, look at the statistics, and try to come up with analysis that focuses on the play, player or decisions that shaped the outcome. Forgive me if I did not have the stomach to put myself through that [...]
- MOURNING AFTER REPORT: Back to the Drawing Board
An all around awful performance by the Jets in a home shut out loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. There’s no way around it. The Jets were outplayed, out-executed, out-hustled and out-coached by Jim Harbaugh’s group. Too add injury to insult, the Jets lost their best offensive weapon, Santonio Holmes, to a non-contract [...]
