The New York Jets have lost four straight to start their 2019 season and are in a state of absolute misery with seemingly no way out.

The New York Jets are wallowing in a pool of misery and there appears to be no end in sight.

There are no words to properly describe the level of ineptitude that we have witnessed through four games this season. The Jets do not belong on the same field as any other NFL team and that statement only becomes truer with each passing week.

There is no fixing this team right now. There is no easy solution nor is there even a difficult solution. The Jets are stuck in a seemingly everlasting state of misery and we still have 12 more games to be played.

Pessimistic? Who cares. Accurate? Absolutely.

The Jets lost to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5 by a final score of 31-6 to officially fall to 0-4 on the season. But stats mean nothing. They can’t speak of the true atrocity of this team right now.

The only way to see said atrocity is by experiencing the misery firsthand. And that’s a path that many long-suffering, tortured Jets fans have unfortunately subjected themselves to.

Luke Falk isn’t the problem. And in turn, Sam Darnold isn’t the answer.

The problems with this team don’t start with the many key injuries facing important members of the roster at the moment. Rather, they are just a piece in the puzzle of incompetence that remains unsolved by the organization.

The offensive line is likely the worst in the league. The offensive coaching has been insufferable. And the defense, try as they may, simply can’t make up for the offense’s woes.

Philadelphia managed 10 sacks against an offensive line that was shaken up due to injuries and inconsistent play. Rookie third-round pick Chuma Edoga started in place of Brandon Shell at right tackle.

He struggled. The entire line struggled.

As a matter of fact, “struggled” isn’t a strong enough adjective. The offensive line was obliterated and broken down until the lifeless bodies of Jets linemen lay watching their quarterback get annihilated for the umpteenth time.

That’s likely a more accurate description of what we saw unfold.

Falk was even injured and replaced by fourth-string quarterback David Fales — a player who hadn’t seen ANY reps in practice — late in the game.

Yes, the Jets were forced to play their fourth-string quarterback and his last name was ‘Fales.’ It’s almost as if the football gods are toying with the Jets and laughing at their agony.

Laughing at their misery.

Trumaine Johnson continues to be one of the most costly investments in the NFL. Leonard Williams is playing like the team’s worst interior defensive lineman at the moment.

And the Jets only offensive score came courtesy of a reverse end around to a wide receiver named Vyncint Smith who the team signed off the Houston Texans practice squad just a couple of weeks ago. They were only given that opportunity because of a muffed punt.

For the second consecutive week, the Jets scored a touchdown because of a special teams blunder. The football gods have struck once again thus making games seem closer than they really are.

After all, the Jets are bad, but it’s unknown to those who don’t sit through this abomination each week just how bad they are.

Stats don’t tell the whole story. Final scores can’t possibly detail the true discrepancy. This team is abysmal in every sense of the word.

And the returns of Sam Darnold, Chris Herndon, C.J. Mosley and every other inured/suspended player will not fix their issues.

The Jets are the worst team in football at this very moment. You could dispute that claim as much as you want, but I find it hard to believe that Gang Green would even be competitive against another NFL franchise with this current incarnation of the team.

Not the Miami Dolphins. Not the Cincinnati Bengals. Not the Washington Redskins. Not one single team.

There is no positive twist to this, this is reality. As endearing as it might be to speak optimistically about the future of this team when everyone returns, we must be realistic and speak candidly.
