As the New York Jets enter their bye week, safety Jamal Adams recently gave advice to his teammates on what can help turn things around.
Let’s face it, the New York Jets are not going to the NFL Playoffs this season. It’s a bit of cold hard truth but it is what it is. They’re a hot mess that might end up winning maybe another game or two to end the year with another straight losing season.
As they enter the bye this week, all eyes will be on what this team can end the season with. Are they able to at least muster up more effort to end the season on a high note? Will they continue to lay down for opponents just to get the year over with?
Your guess is as good as mine but safety Jamal Adams knows that everyone at this point in time needs a break from all this. Perhaps the break will bring some clarity to players and the coaching staff to come back and prepare for their final six games.

Courtesy of the Media Relations Department of the Jets, here is the advice Adams gave to his teammates going into the bye week:
Get your mind off everything. Go relax. Go be with family; be with your loved ones and just kind of get your mind off football for a little bit. At the same time, obviously, you’re going to think about it, but try to relax. Look at yourself in the mirror – everybody in here. I mean, I’m not perfect, no one is perfect in here and all 53 that were on that field, on the sideline – we didn’t do our job, we didn’t come out and play well. No one had a good game.
In the grand scheme of things, this is excellent advice to let the frustration and anger settle down among players and especially to a fan base that looks like they’ve had enough. It’s hard to find anyone that isn’t looking for the Jets to clean house of their current leadership regime but as always, time heals all.
All one can do is go back to the task at hand and prepare for one huge battle against the New England Patriots at home in MetLife Stadium. The odds are obviously against the Jets to beat a team as solid as the Patriots but perhaps this bye week can work its magic and at least have everyone a bit more prepared for what awaits in Week 12.
