As the New York Jets lost yet another game this season falling to 1-5, they continue being delusional when it comes to their quarterback situation.

11. No, that’s not Ryan Fitzpatrick‘s jersey number, but rather, the number of interceptions he’s thrown so far in 2016. It’s come to the point where the New York Jets are beyond salvation this season. Their style of football is embarrassing, pathetic, and proves why this team continues to to get laughed at.

The Jets lost in another embarrassment of a game to the final score of 28-3 on Monday Night Football. The Arizona Cardinals took care of business against the Jets and added more salt to the already fresh wounds of this franchise. Now the Jets aren’t even disciplined enough as penalties are now racking up faster than a New York minute.

Despite their many problems across the team from defense, coaching, and overall execution, there is once again a quarterback situation brewing on the Jets. To be blunt, the Jets need to bench Fitzpatrick once and for all.

His time is done as an effective starting quarterback for the Jets. Analysts know it, fans clearly know it, yet the Jets continue being delusional in hoping that Fitzmagic returns at some point this season. The problem is, the Jets went from being a contending team last year that ended at 10-6 to a team that looks like it regressed at least a few years back.

This team plays with no confidence, heart, or passion. They are an emotionless group that continues to give the same excuses week in, week out. They allow this to happen yet are comfortable in every sense of the word.

As per the Media Relations Department of the Jets, head coach Todd Bowles plans to stick with Fitzpatrick heading into Week 7.

That’s right, when the Baltimore Ravens come to MetLife Stadium, they’ll get to play a quarterback that’s thrown 11 interceptions just six games into the year.

Yep, a quarterback that cost the Jets $12M to bring back for just this year that can’t get a first down if his job depended on it.

Heck, he could probably throw another interception, overthrow another wide open receiver, or once again settle for a field goal in a red-zone situation, and the Jets will continue starting him. Fitzpatrick truly has nothing to worry about based on the Jets continuing to have blind loyalty to him.

Insanity is doing the same exact thing over and over again while expecting different results. The Jets have now lost four straight games and will continue losing by sticking with Fitzpatrick. You won’t win many football games if you don’t score touchdowns. They refuse to at least sit Fitzpatrick for a week or two to see if Geno Smith can muster some kind of offensive spark for the Jets. But yet again, this franchise continues to be delusional in the grand scheme of things. They won’t start a young quarterback that might help this team win football games in favor of one that will continue to fail.
