    After a 2-5 start the New York Jets are hoping to turn everything around coming off the bye week here in Week 9. A victory at home versus Miami can put them right back in the mix for the AFC East title. But let's look at how they've got to this point in the season.

    The losses have been much like the 2014-2015 Giants they find themselves in the game in the 4th quarter but can't find a way to capitalize. Whether it be Week 2 @ MIA when Geno Smith fumbled at the 2 yard line while attempting to score on a rushing play or Week 7 @ NE when a missed extra point early in the game came back to haunt the Jets when they were forced to go for two in the fourth quarter, an attempt that failed. The Jets have only lost 1 game by more than 6 points, a week 5 21 point loss the defending user Super Bowl champion Oakland Raiders, losing by 3 to Miami and New Orleans, 6 to Carolina and 2 to New England. They've also been a victim to home sickness as they're a paltry 0-4 on the road this season. Geno Smith has actually performed quite well however completing 62% of his passes throwing for 2,160 yards with 14 touchdowns and only 4 interceptions, a far cry from last season when he threw a league worst 31 interceptions. Geno's also added 281 yds rushing with another 2 touchdowns The Jets have unfortunately had to rely heavily on the passing game as Doug Martin is 2nd in yards gained on the ground to Geno with 249 yards and 0 tds on 96 attempts, to be fair Martin has caught 50 passes for 541 yards and two scores. Most critics would think the reliance on passing the ball would be leading to more interceptions but as noted previously Geno's been surprisingly accurate. Many expected the Jets to be one of the more active teams at the deadline but they did the exact opposite and stood pat. All season they actively looked to move DT Damon Harrison but couldn't find an offer strong enough to pull the trigger on moving the 96 overall star. Speculation around the league was that they'd look to address their need at the WR but head coach Lovie Smith liked what he saw out of Devin Smith (21/294/4tds) and Jeremy Kerley (10/147/1) and knowing he has Brandon Marshall coming off the Injured Reserve.

    Looking forward to what we know is going to happen, the offseason and the draft. Their's a lot of questions in the front office as to whether they'll be bringing back Brandon Marshall who is in the last year of his contract and every year is decreasing in his ability. Reports have been made by multiple outlets saying that the two sides can't agree on a monetary amount with Marshall asking for more money than the Jets look to be offering and don't seem to be looking to budge. It's possible New York may just try to improve through the draft or use the money they'll have after Marshall's contract is off the books to pursue what free agents are available. The Jets currently project to have a top 10 and a bottom 10 1st round pick (via Jacksonville) and their scout has been seen all across the country taking vested interest in Quarterbacks and Wide Receivers but with so much time between now and the draft who knows what they'll be thinking at the time their name is called.

    A lot of things can happen in the coming months, but for now we'll just have to wait and see...
