For the New York Jets, they have far greater issues than just at quarterback. Until there is a consistent change when it comes to accountability and a culture of being legendary, they will never improve.

Winning fixes everything. It’s a feeling that brings joy and well, a great feeling when one puts in 110 percent in everything they do. When you win a football game and at the end, you’re with your teammates exhausted, sweating and hurting, it’s an incredible sense of pride. For the New York Jets, this is a feeling that hasn’t been seen in weeks.

It all comes down to the overall culture of what this franchise is all about. Last year, the Jets showed heart, consistency, and execution. They weren’t perfect, but they sure as heck gave it everything they had in every game of 2015. This year, the same group of players and coaches, for the most part, are back and well, there is no accountability or culture that proves winning is all that matters.

These players we’ve been seeing all season long look like they simply don’t care. Forget about the nonsense at quarterback, Darrelle Revis playing with no inspiration and an underachieving defense. The issues of the Jets are far greater than all of that  since the culture of Gang Green is completely unacceptable.

Until the Jets have a leadership regime that runs a tight ship and ensures that everyone, regardless of position or title is “all in” for the common goal of winning, this franchise will forever be doomed. It doesn’t matter who is under center, covering receiving targets, or trying to establish a pass rush, the truth of the matter is, not everyone is committed to doing whatever it takes to win.

It’s getting pretty tiring to see players not hustle after opponents or execute to their full potential. Too many times overpriced and overhyped football players don’t care enough to stick with the basics. At the end of it all, until leadership holds everyone accountable, especially when this team continues to lose, they will always be on the outside looking in.

Overall, this team lacks the hustle, heart, and ability to at least fight for a win. Sure, they had a close game in Week 12 against the New England Patriots but again, they didn’t play as a team wanting a win as bad as they need to breathe. Some players played hard while others didn’t. It’s clear as day that there is no complete team effort when it matters most. Players don’t hold their teammates accountable for not executing. It’s okay to lose football games since not every team will win every game, but at least show that you play for something other than a paycheck you haven’t truly earned on a consistent basis.
