The New York Jets look like they are unable to turn things around in what has been a forgettable season, and the team’s losing ways have started to rub some players the wrong way. One of those players is safety Jamal Adams, who didn’t try to hide his frustration after 6-13 loss to Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
“It’s the same, same, same stuff,” – Adams told ESPN‘s Rich Cimini. “It’s frustrating. I’m not going to hold my tongue for anything anymore. I’m not a loser. I don’t do this for fantasy points. I do this for the love of the game. I’m passionate about this team, and I believe in this team.”
“I’m sick of losing,” – he continued. “Honestly, I’m sick of losing. I’m fed up with losing. … It pisses me off every time. I’m not a loser. I want to get back on the winning track. We’ve lost three straight? Come on, man.”
Even though the Jets are losing one game after another, Jamal Adams is doing his part to change that. After being selected to PFWA All-Rookie Team in 2017, Adams has continued to flourish in 2018 as well, and currently has 63 tackles, 1.0 sack, one interception and two forced fumbles in the first nine games.
To start winning games consistently, NY Jets will have to help their rookie quarterback Sam Darnold to overcome his struggles. While Darnold has shown flashes of brilliant talent, which got him selected third overall in 2018 NFL Draft, he has been turnover prone and has already thrown 14 interceptions, most by any rookie QB in the same period since 2000.
While Jets didn’t have high hopes for this season, because they have a young team, the way they are losing games is indeed alarming. If things don’t get better soon, we could see some personnel change in New York.
