As the season of the New York Jets continues to head into a downward spiral, the franchise continues to leave their fans with a loss for words.
I have been a diehard New York Jets fan since five-years-old. I have lived and breathed the New York Jets in every way imaginable. I’ve worn jerseys dating back to Laveranues Coles and Chad Pennington; saw the infamous Mark Sanchez butt fumble in person, and have witnessed countless Tom Brady game-winning drives.
I’ve gone to training camp and opening day for years. I didn’t mind sitting in the cold, the rain or the snow cheering the Jets on. I even lost my voice screaming for them through the toughest of times. I’ve been writing about their games this season since before preseason even kicked off.
Another week, another loss, no shocker. The Jets traveled to Arizona and got destroyed, 28-3. Utterly pathetic. After the game, Brandon Marshall summed it up perfectly: “The reality is that we’re not a good team right now,” Marshall said, per Ben Shpigel of the New York Times. “That’s the reality. You got to deal with reality.”
The Jets have suffered four consecutive losses by a total score of 110-36, their offense scoring just three touchdowns in the last three games and a defense that has been asleep at the wheel.
It’s evident that the Gang Green fans have officially hit rock bottom, as we are now actually embracing the return of Geno Smith to the starting quarterback role.
Ironically the very same player who led the team to an 11-18 record with 36 interceptions as a starter.
In next week’s game, the Baltimore Ravens come to MetLife Stadium after losing three straight games of their own. If the Jets do lose a fifth straight game this Sunday and drop to 1-6, one can only assume head coach
If the Jets do lose a fifth straight game this Sunday and drop to 1-6, one can only assume head coach Todd Bowles and the rest of the coaching staff will be in the “hot seat”.
