The New York Jets once again failed to deliver in Week 4 against the Seattle Seahawks as they played another week of pathetic football.
Stronger. Faster. Greener. This is the supposed mantra of the New York Jets all throughout the year. Fans once again got excited for a new season upon us in 2016 as hope was in the air that the Jets could continue the momentum of last season. Except they actually make an appearance in the NFL Playoffs when all is said and done.
As the Jets lost a rather important Week 4 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks, they once again continued to play a pathetic style of football. Missed tackles, blown coverages, and surprise, more turnovers by a team that simply can’t play a competitive game a football from start to finish.
Where is the fire? Where is the passion? What happened to a group of men, playing the sport they love, getting upset that their team can’t seem to get anything right? The Jets continue to allow themselves to become the new laughingstock of the NFL because there truly is no accountability when it comes to everyone wearing this uniform.
From dumb penalties, injuries, a lack of communication on defense, and all sorts of amazing turnovers that only make people laugh. It’s another embarrassing loss by a team claiming to be a contender when at the end of the day, they’d be lucky to get above .500 this season.

The truth of the matter is, players and coaches are too comfortable on the sideline. Yes, they have concerned faces but it’s not enough.
For a franchise that continues to not perform at a respectable level to a loyal and dedicated fan base is completely unacceptable. It’s one thing to lose in a hard fought, tough game.
It’s another to play so bad, that it all questions the overall heart of the players on the Jets. Leaders are supposed to rally the troops in the heat of battle, not sit on the bench looking confused at the scoreboard as they’re undoubtedly losing.
Hopefully, somebody steps up and gets mad. Whether it’s head coach Todd Bowles, wide receiver Brandon Marshall, or even defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson, someone needs to wake up and start getting into people’s faces. This pathetic style of football that’s been shown to millions across the globe the past two weeks is beyond unacceptable.
Overall, it all starts from the head down. Bowles needs to have one-on-ones, get aggressive, and start holding these so-called players accountable for their lack of execution. The season only gets worse with upcoming games against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Arizona Cardinals, and Baltimore Ravens.
