The Jets lost their third game in a row and were once again left to regret several costly mistakes which could have turned the game in their favor. With a short turnaround before the next game, the coaching staff has a challenging week ahead.

Let's start this week by breaking down the performances on the offensive side of the ball:

Quarterbacks

In difficult conditions, this was another solid performance by Josh McCown, who threw two touchdowns and completed a high percentage of his passes. However, his limitations - or perhaps those of the offensive personnel surrounding him - were exposed on that last drive, as the Jets needed to go 97 yards in 67 seconds, and it took them seven plays and all of that time to barely get one-third of the way there.

McCown can move the chains with the quick passing game, but the Jets require their pass catchers to make extra yards after the catch and that didn't happen much yesterday.

A couple of weeks after he missed a wide open Travaris Cadet for a potential big play in the Patriots game, McCown missed an open Austin Seferian-Jenkins coming across the middle with about 25 seconds left, instead opting to check down to his running back for another short gain.

McCown only missed on a few makeable throws, but fumbled twice, although the Jets recovered both of these.


Running Backs

Much has been made of comments by Matt Forté after the game that the Jets need to run the ball more. He may actually have been referring to the fact that the running game needs to be more effective rather than bashing the play selection, though.

After Bilal Powell went for 12 yards off the edge on the game's first play, the Jets averaged less than 1.5 yards per carry the rest of the way, with Forté himself held to seven yards on just four carries.

With that kind of success, you can't just run the ball on first and second down because you're destined to set yourself up for 3rd-and-long situations again and again, which is not ideal when you're playing in wet conditions with an overmatched offensive line. The Falcons knew this and were loading eight and sometimes nine into the box.



Forté was able to make some contributions in the passing game as his six catches included a third down conversion out of the slot and two other first downs. Powell added one first down run and one first down catch to his run on the first play, and also set up a field goal by picking up some extra yards on a 3rd-and-long dump-off. However, he ended up with just 61 yards on 19 touches. That was the most touches he's had this year other than in the Jaguars game when Forté was out.

Elijah McGuire barely saw action on offense again, although was used as the kick-off returner for the first time.

At fullback, Lawrence Thomas caught a couple of short passes but didn't make much of an impact as a blocker and was stuffed on a third-and-short run. It shows the lack of confidence the Jets have in their conventional running game when they had second-and-short they tried an end around that came up just short before trying the element of surprise again on the fullback dive.

Receivers

Robby Anderson had a bit of a break-out game this week, surpassing 100 yards for the first time and adding another touchdown. He made a spectacular diving catch over the top, torched Desmond Trufant easily for a score, and had another nice gain on a catch and run. Anderson also drew a first down on a pass interference call, and caught all six of his targets this week after his catch rate had been hovering around the 50 percent mark on the season.

Seferian-Jenkins, Jeremy Kerley and Jermaine Kearse were quiet this week though. Sefarian-Jenkins had five catches but they only went for 28 yards and he also had two penalties and some struggles as a blocker. Kerley and Kearse each had a first down catch at the marker in the first half, but neither had a catch after halftime.

Eric Tomlinson delivered once again with his first career touchdown and some good run blocking off the bench, but ArDarius Stewart was inactive and Chad Hansen barely played.



Offensive Line

James Carpenter had an inconsistent game as a run blocker this week and gave up a lot of interior pressure, including a sack. The Jets seemed to have problems dealing with Atlanta's stunting linemen, especially in the second half.

At center, the struggles continue for Wesley Johnson who was penalized for a snap infraction, and had problems holding up at the point of attack against Dontari Poe.

Kelvin Beachum had been playing well, but struggled yesterday. He had two penalties, made mistakes in the running game, and was beaten on the edge a few times in pass protection.

Brian Winters actually had one of his better games of the year this week. He didn't make any mistakes in pass protection, although he was called for a face mask penalty and missed his block on a play that got blown up for a loss.

Brent Qvale suffered an injury in the fourth quarter and was replaced by Ben Ijalana at right tackle. Qvale had struggled, giving up a strip sack around the edge and not faring well in the running game. Interestingly, the Jets never ran the ball outside to the right side - other than on the end around that didn't work - although they had consecutive runs over the right side in the second half where the back had no choice to go up the middle because Qvale allowed his man to get upfield.

Ijalana also had a costly mistake after entering the game, whiffing on Vic Beasley coming around the edge on a failed third down play that forced the Jets to punt with four minutes left.

It's never too early to look at Super Bowl LIV odds.

According to BetOnline.ag, the Jets find themselves with 66/1 odds to win their first Lombardi Trophy since 1968. The Bills, Bengals, Broncos, Lions, Raiders, Bucs and Redskins all share the same odds. The Giants are in the middle of the pack, owning 40/1 odds.

After his introductory press conference, Jets new head coach Adam Gase has been the subject of numerous memes that have gained some popularity on social media.

So has Gase seen them? Not in the slightest.

"I don't have Twitter or Instagram. I don't read the Internet. I don't watch TV," Gase said on ESPN's "The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz." "All that stuff is irrelevant to me. It's poluttion of the brain. I really don't care. That's not how I operate. I'm here to do one thing and that's to help this organization win."

Jets dream offseason wishlist 00:00:18
SNY's New York Jets analysts pick each of their top three free agents they want the Jets to sign this offseason.

The Jets have their new head coach in place, and as Adam Gase puts together his staff, the next big step is what Gang Green will do this offseason to improve their 53-man roster. 

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan will have almost $100 million ($99,387,909 projected by OverTheCap.com) to work with in free agency, and to explore trades. 

So who should they go after? The SNY Jets crew gave their dream offseason wishlist for the Jets, as they look ahead to the free agent class and players that could be on the market:

Mock drafts are continuing to pour in with three and a half months to go before the NFL draft, and ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. has the Jets taking a defensive tackle.

Kiper has the Jets taking Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams with the No. 3 pick, shoring up a defensive line under new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

Though Kiper has the Jets missing out on the highly-touted Nick Bosa (No. 1, Cardinals) and Josh Allen (No. 2, 49ers), it's tough to diminish Williams' ability.

The day the Cleveland Browns named Gregg Williams their interim head coach after firing Hue Jackson, their former defensive coordinator made one thing perfectly clear: The Browns were lucky to have him.

"Since I left Buffalo (in 2003), I had 11 letters to interview for head coaching jobs," Williams said. "Four of them, I didn't even have to interview. Just show up and sign the contract."

Analyzing Gregg Williams hire 00:00:57
SNY's Willie Colon believes new Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams will improve defense but his personality might bother Adam Gase.

The Jets officially named Gregg Williams their new defensive coordinator under head coach Adam Gase on Wednesday.

According to a report by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Williams has agreed to a three-year deal with the team. Williams is flying to the New York-New Jersey area to sign the contract and finalize the deal on Wednesday.

Speaking about Williams for the first time on SiriusXM NFL Radio with Jim Miller and Pat Kirwan, Gase said Williams' defenses have always been a tough challenge, mainly due to their intensity level...

Todd Bowles is reportedly not the only Jets coach on Bruce Arians' radar to join him in Tampa Bay. 

Defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers has officially joins the Buccaneers' staff as a defensive line coach, as the team announced numerous assistant hirings on Wednesday.

Rodgers, 49, spent the last four seasons as the Jets defensive coordinator under Bowles and also worked alongside the former Jets head coach in Miami and Dallas as a defensive line coach.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | ArchiveTodd Bowles came to the Jets with the reputation of being one of the best defensive minds in football. And in his first season, it was easy to see why. After that, it was all a steady roll downhill towards the Jets becoming one of the worst defenses in the league.

That's startling considering how they had invested in their defense. For eight straight years, before they took quarterback Sam Darnold, they had taken a defensive player in the first round of the draft. And they had spent big money on defenders in free agency like corners Trumaine Johnson and Morris Claiborne as well as linebacker Avery Williamson.

Yet they still had no pass rush and they wore down late in games. The Jets' defense was a remarkable group of underachievers.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive: The Jets' long road from Todd Bowles to Adam Gase began in mid-November, long before either of them were fired from their old jobs. It started after a humiliating, 41-10 home loss by Bowles' Jets to the Buffalo Bills just before the bye week.

The week off gave the entire organization a chance to reassess itself. And the consensus inside the building became that the Jets needed a change.

What happened next was the beginning of what CEO Christopher Johnson later promised was an "extensive" search that over a two-month period included a look at Jim Harbaugh, a flirtation with Mike McCarthy, a push for Matt Rhule and a surprising inability to dismiss Todd Monken. When it was over, they ended up with a new head coach who wasn't on their original list because he was coaching a team in a playoff race with three weeks left in the regular season...

New Jets head coach Adam Gase touched on plenty of topics during his 15-minute press conference on Monday, but he omitted one key name.

The 40-year-old emphasized the importance of instructing a young quarterback like Sam Darnold, not being interested in total team control and, finally, filling out the remainder of his coaching staff. Gregg Williams is the defensive coordinator generating a buzz in New York and, though Gase did not specifically utter his name on Monday, reports say the Jets are close to bringing Williams in.

There is nothing new about the phrase "long-suffering Jets fan," because over the last 50 years there's no doubt they've all suffered enough. Right now, they're in the midst of a particularly difficult period. This is the longest stretch without a playoff berth for the Jets in almost 40 years.

That's why the biggest fear of those long-suffering fans who heard the Adam Gase press conference on Monday is that when it comes to this current playoff drought, eight years still may not be enough.

Adam Gase with Jeane Coakley 00:04:08
SNY's Jeane Coakley spoke with New York Jets head coach Adam Gase about Sam Darnold and the team after his introductory press conference.

There may be a reason why things between the Jets and defensive coordinator candidate Gregg Williams have reportedly slowed down. 

Jets new head coach Adam Gase told SNY's Jeane Coakley at his introductory press conference on Monday that one of the things he learned from his time as head coach of the Miami Dolphins was not to rush into hiring the staff. 

"What I mean by that is you don't want to start grabbing guys that might be available," he said. "You might have to take your time, interview guys and I think we have the right mindset right now and heading in the right direction and hopefully soon we'll start getting guys on board."

In a since-deleted tweet, Jets S Jamal Adams wasn't shy about one free agent he wanted the team to pursue this offseason.

"Yeah I like #55 Dee Ford off that end for us! Let's pay him what he wants!" Adams tweeted at 7:28 p.m. on Saturday as Ford and the Chiefs were crushing the Colts to advance to the AFC Championship Game.

The 27-year-old Ford had a tremendous game on Sunday, with one forced fumble, one sack, and four tackles.

The Jets found their 19th head coach in franchise history this week in Adam Gase, who they officially announced on Friday. But Gase's hiring came as a surprise to many, with former Packers head coach Mike McCarthy reportedly having his eyes only set on the Jets' job. 

McCarthy is the more accomplished head coach compared to Gase, and having developed Aaron Rodgers during his time in Green Bay, the marriage with QB Sam Darnold seemed like a match made in heaven. 

But, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Confora, the Jets and McCarthy didn't pan out due to staffing issues.

Particularly, what Gase can do with the Jets offense. 

The 21-year-old quarterback told the Jets team website on Friday that he is "excited" about the new hire and added what he expects from the offense in the first season under Gase.
