As the New York Jets prepare for the long season ahead, their new culture change has been working as players are responding to holding each other accountable.

When it comes to accountability, it tends to make the workplace efficient to the point where things that need to get done, will get done, otherwise, there will be consequences. The New York Jets had major issues last year when it came to accountability when things didn’t go as planned.

From a lack of effort on the football field to veteran players being late to mandatory team meetings, the Jets needed a new culture change this season if they’re to rebound from 2016. It won’t be easy but it all comes down to the coaching staff and ensuring that players know just because expectations are low, that doesn’t mean to ease up at any point in time.

In an article written by Rich Cimini for ESPN, safety Rontez Miles has already seen the changes. Take a look at what he said below about the new culture change:

“You see the change from last year. People are really serious about this. We’re holding each other accountable, and I’m looking forward to seeing where this goes.”

It’s refreshing to see that the Jets are doing what is needed to move the franchise in a better direction.

Results might not be immediate but at least head coach Todd Bowles is changing how he’s been running this team for the upcoming season.

In that same article by Cimini, he also mentioned that Bowles has been bringing in guest speakers to motivate the team, especially on accountability.

Bowles brought in a unit from the Army to do team-building exercises to emphasize that teamwork is everything in the grand scheme of things. Holding each other accountable is how to achieve results.

Overall, many are writing off the Jets this upcoming season due to a lack of talent and well, things won’t be easy once the regular season arrives. Regardless of the final record in 2017, at least the culture of the Jets should be different this time around. The foundation is being set for a strict culture towards execution when everything finally comes together in another year or two.
