The Jets are blaming their players for their 0-5 start rather than taking a look in the mirror.
It’s hard to find a worse offensive situation than what is going on with the New York Jets. Le’Veon Bell was released out of vindictiveness from Adam Gase, standout rookie Mekhi Becton is hurt, and quarterback Sam Darnold looked totally lost before he himself injured his shoulder. To make matters worse, Gase and OC Dowell Loggains somehow don’t think they’re the problem in New York.
Loggains was finally asked his thoughts on the Jets 0-5 start to things, and he is trying to wash his hands of any blame just like his mentor Gase. Loggains claims that he and Gase are designing solid gameplans, but the players aren’t executing it properly.
The Jets are among the worst statistical offenses in the league
The Jets are going into Week 6 against a Miami Dolphins team that just stomped the San Francisco 49ers with an offense is ahead of only Washington in terms of yards per game and dead last in the league in points per game.
While Loggains is technically offensive coordinator, he is so incompetent that Gase doesn’t give him any responsibilities beyond throwing the challenge flag. Considering he hasn’t overseen an offense ranked higher than 26th in points per game over the last five years, that makes sense.
With a rebuilt offensive line continuing to struggle outside of Becton, exactly one good skill position player in Jamison Crowder, a lack of creativity or nuance in their schemes and play-calling, and a quarterback in Darnold that looks broken, nothing is going right in New York, and that falls on the coaches for not putting these players in better positions to succeed.
Rather than be accountable and own up to their own poor performance, Gase and Loggains are once again pulling out the age-old excuse that it’s everyone else’s fault but mine. With such poor leadership, it’s easy to see why this team is 0-5.
