NEW YORK (WFAN) — Back in the preseason if you had told most Jets fans the team would be .500 through six games, many would have asked where to sign on the dotted line. However, if you ask star defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson it’s really not something to be overly proud of considering how the season has played out.
“I think if we didn’t have the mistakes we’ve had from now from the start of the season I think our record would be better. But right now being .500 I won’t say I’m OK with it. It is what it is,” Wilkerson said. “If we get on board together, keep believing, fix the mistakes we keep making repeatedly we will definitely have a good record at the end of the season.”
The problem for the Jets is they are starting what is likely a season-defining stretch of games — three straight against first-place teams. They get New England at home on Sunday, followed by a trip to Cincinnati and then a home game against New Orleans. Wilkerson said it’s time for the Jets to make a stand and determine who they really are.
