The New York Jets: How Bad Will It Get?

The New York Jets have been at the bottom of the 32-team NFL for many, many weeks. And there is not much improvement in sight! Adam Gase’s troop is now at 0:10 and is slowly about to write inglorious history.

Has only been the coach of the New York Jets since 2019 and will most likely lose his job by early 2021 at the latest: Adam Gase.

A 28:34 at the Los Angeles Chargers this time. It sounds tight at first, but it wasn’t really right. In the disastrous first two quarters, the jets initially led 6-0 thanks to a 6-yard sprint by La’Mical Perine (extra point awarded by Sam Ficken), but then everything collapsed. The result at the break: 6:24 – and the knowledge that in a full 30 minutes, for example, I had only thrown twice at wide receivers.

Joe Flacco (35), one-time Super Bowl winner and representative of the soon-to-be-returning Sam Darnold (23), admitted immediately after the game that he had not noticed any of these statistics. A subsequent explanation on his part: It is also difficult to involve many pass recipients with only 23 offensive moves in the entire first half.

But by then the game was already over, and in the end, even braver moves in quarters three and four (for example a TD pass over 49 yards on Breshad Perriman) didn’t help. A rushing touchdown from oldie Frank Gore (37) and another score via catch from Chris Herndon only made cosmetics. In the end, Chargers punter Ty Long purposely took a safety in his own end zone to let the clock run down to a second – that’s why the end result of 28:34 reads properly at first glance.

Gore wishes: “I would be so happy”

But behind the scenes it has been rumbling since the beginning of this regular season: How long can Head Coach Adam Gase (42, previously 2016-2018 in Miami), who was installed in 2019 and will be 7-19 in two years, be held? It should be an open secret that a dividing line will be drawn after Week 17 at the latest. And will the playmaker Darnold, who was injured on the shoulder and landed as a third overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft, suffer the same fate? After all, in a catastrophic season, New York could strike again in the 2021 draft and elect a new leader – especially since critics Darnold have been counting more and more for weeks (only three touchdowns in six interceptions in six games in 2020, a total of 34 interceptions in three years ) and trust him less and less to make a leap towards the elite quarterback.

But for now, the jets have enough to do to deal with the reality after Week 11. With 0:10 the team is not only officially out of the play-off race as the first team (earliest elimination since 1990), they have now missed the finals for the tenth year in a row and are also involuntarily chasing the two shutout seasons the Detroit Lions (0:16 in 2008) and Cleveland Browns (0:16 in 2017). “It shouldn’t end like this – especially not if this is really supposed to be my last NFL year,” says running-back legend Frank Gore. “Hopefully we will at least manage to win. I would be so happy.”

But the New York Jets these days are very far from bliss or happiness. A current statement from substitute playmaker Flacco after his fatal Pick-Six on Sunday (“That was really bad”) or one from Defensive Tackle Henry Anderson: “We are all more frustrated than ever since we played football. ”

Would you like a final side note? The Cleveland Browns (17 years old) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (twelve) are currently experiencing the longest periods of drought without play-off action. But because these two franchises are currently doing very well, the jets after 2020, with their ten years already established, could involuntarily lead here too.
