I don’t want to read more about how this was meant to be a rebuilding year, a developmental season for Geno Smith, yada, yada, yada. Been there. Too many times to count.
Following a debacle against the Green Bay Packers, some are starting to question the ability of the New York Jets coaching staff. After only two games this is a huge mistake.
Moments after the Jets’ 34-21 loss to Green Bay on Sunday, social media was buzzing about the timeout call that wiped out a tying touchdown late in the fourth quarter. It conjured images of other great mistakes in franchise history.
New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg took full blame for the timeout call that negated a tying touchdown against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
Let’s break down the New York Jets horror story from Sunday in Green Bay.
Sure, it’s just one loss. But to try to take positives from Sunday’s disaster at Lambeau Field would really expose a disturbing case of denial. The Jets beat themselves and there’s just no way to spin it.
For a moment, it seemed as if the Jets had tied the Packers. Touchdown — Jeremy Kerley with about 5 minutes left to the game. One problem…
The wish list for the Jets’ offense was simple, yet ambitious. Playmakers — real difference makers — were needed, and general manager John Idzik went shopping during the offseason.
Anyone else tired of hearing about cornerbacks? The Jets need to start doing their defense a favor by moving the ball and putting up points like a 21st century NFL team.
Preseason games don’t matter? Don’t tell that to Jets quarterback Geno Smith, because his career may depend on them.
Marty Mornhinweg might be the not-so-secret key to the New York Jets’ success this season. Yep, even more than Geno Smith. Or, Michael Vick. Even Eric Decker, Chris Johnson and the offensive line.
Johnson wouldn’t reveal any specific goals he has set for his team, but insisted this year’s Jets are “absolutely” better than the group that walked off the field after the season finale in 2013.
For the longest time the Jets have been trying to tell anyone who will listen that any talk of an open competition for the starting quarterback position is being conducted by those simply not paying attention.
The presence of Michael Vick doesn’t shake his confidence. Neither does his not-so-solid hold on the New York Jets’ quarterback job. Not even his uncertain status as the future of the franchise.
These days, tight end is an offensive position. So is it any wonder that the Jets’ second-round draft pick, Jace Amaro, is being handed a bushel full of expectations?
