Garrett Wilson suggests a players-only meeting after NY Jets offense sputters again

What else is left to do?

What is there to even say at this point? The NY Jets lost another primetime game on Sunday Night, falling to the Las Vegas Raiders by a final score of 16-12. It was a different week but the same story. Garrett Wilson knows that all too well.

The Jets' defense was outstanding, forced two key turnovers, and gave their offense every opportunity to not only win but dominate this game. The offense couldn't score a touchdown...again.

Wilson was his usual excellent self, finishing the game with nine catches for 93 yards. It was the fourth game in a row that Wilson had finished with at least seven catches and 80 yards. Unfortunately, despite his best efforts, nothing is changing.

The Jets' offense is broken in every possible way, and despite the near-historical levels of ineptitude, the Jets seemingly have no plans to change anything. This is how it is. The coaching staff has decided it.

Perhaps that's why, when asked about the possibility of a players-only meeting following Sunday's game, Wilson was receptive to the idea.

"All of it is on the table. We're trying to figure it out. I can see something like that going down soon because it has to. I'm going to take it upon myself. We've got some guys in this locker room that know how to lead, and we'll see what it's like traveling back to New York, what we talk about. We have to do something."

The NY Jets players are showing more accountability than their coaching staff

They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. There is no phrase that more perfectly encapsulates the Jets' offense.

Despite this offense being statistically worse than the likes of the 2022 Nathaniel Hackett-led Denver Broncos and the 2020 Adam Gase-led Jets, the organization has made few changes to the unit.

Hackett will remain the play-caller for the foreseeable future. Wilson is locked in as the team's quarterback. Even players like C.J. Uzomah, Allen Lazard, etc., who have continuously negatively impacted the team this season, are in no danger of losing their spots.

The Jets are content with the status quo, even though the status quo is one of the worst offenses the NFL has seen in decades. They can insist they're "close" all they want — this Jets offense isn't even remotely close to being semi-competent.

They haven't scored an offensive touchdown in 11 quarters. The last time they scored on a touchdown drive of longer than one play was in Week 4. It's Week 11 now. That's downright embarrassing.

Garrett Wilson was about as frustrated as we've ever seen him following Sunday night's loss, and who can blame him?

The Jets players realize that the offense is broken. Fans recognize it. The entire NFL world does, too. But for whatever reason, the coaching staff refuses to accept this reality.

A players-only meeting, while noble, probably isn't changing anything. Who knows if anything can change the direction of the Jets offense at this point?
