Schwartz: Which Way Are The Jets Heading?

The finger-pointing has started. The losses are mounting. The offense continues to struggle — and the guarantees have stopped. What’s next for the Jets?

Schwartz: Is It Time For The Jets To Panic?

I’m not usually one to press the panic button after four games, but we have reached the quarter pole of the season and its clear that we don’t know what the Jets identity is just yet.

Schwartz: A Lot For Jets To Shore Up In Jersey

About a year ago, someone finally convinced me to give “Jersey Shore” a chance. It was five minutes of my life that I’ll never get back. I kind of feel the same way about Sunday’s Jets game.

Schwartz: Jets At Raiders Preview

Under normal circumstances, I would pick the Jets to win this game 31-10. But with the offense without Mangold and the likelihood of Sanchez being pressured into some mistakes, I the game will be a lot closer Jets fans would hope for.

Schwartz: A Costly Victory For The Jets?

Under normal conditions, the Jets would be sky high after their 32-3 win over the Jaguars, but they are holding their collective breaths and crossing their fingers about the status of Pro Bowl center Nick Mangold.

The Jets’ head coach has been no stranger to brash quotes since replacing Eric Mangini in 2009. But his words this past Monday clearly outline how the organization feels about Sunday night’s regular season opener against the Cowboys at MetLife Stadium.

On Sunday night, the Jets will host the Cowboys at MetLife Stadium on the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. The Jets will join the NFL and the nation as they honor, remember, and reunite with special ceremonies throughout the night.
