As the New York Jets finish up their final games in a forgotten season, quarterback Bryce Petty recently chimed in his thoughts on being 4-10.
It’s no secret that the New York Jets have been one of those most disappointing teams in the NFL this season. Currently 4-10, the Jets aren’t making the NFL Playoffs and have a whole lot of work ahead of them in hopes of being a contender again.
The way the team has been playing looks like they have regressed a few years, unfortunately. Lots of coaches and even players are on the hot seat heading into the offseason once the season is over as no one is truly safe. There is also no guarantee the Jets even win another game this year with how poorly they have been playing.
At least for now, there is hope that quarterback Bryce Petty develops into a franchise quarterback over time. It’s hard to predict what direction the Jets will go at quarterback but hopefully, if they’re wise, they’ll realize it’s best to stick with Petty and continue his development.
Regardless, after their embarrassing Week 15 loss to the Miami Dolphins with the final score being 34-13, it’s almost time to reflect and focus on what to do next. Time heals all but in the grand scheme of things, lots of players didn’t play to their potential and coaching them to execute weekly hasn’t really been happening efficiently.

Right after their game on Saturday night, Petty chimed in his thoughts about the 4-10 season so far for the Jets. Here is what he had to say, courtesy of the Media Relations Department:
On being 4-10…
Nobody expected this, but this is life. There’s a lot of things that happen in life that you don’t expect. You just have to be able to roll with it. There’s a lot of adversity that these guys in this building are growing from. It’s definitely not how we want it. It’s definitely not how we know we can play and produce. But at the same time, we’re going to keep fighting. Each week is a new week. It doesn’t matter what happened last week. It’s a one-game week. We’re going to continue to get better, learn from this, learn from our mistakes. Excited about next week.
Overall, Petty has the right mentality to handle anything coming his way. It’s too early to tell if he’s going to be the successful franchise quarterback the Jets desperately need for consistent success but at least for now, he’s got the right attitude moving forward.
