As it turns out, the rest of the world has company.
Not even the Jets know what to make of the Jets these days.
But after alternating wins and losses to a 5-5 record, the Jets can’t think abut the fact they’re still technically in the playoff race.
“We’re not going to be a playoff team until they say we’re in the playoffs,” right guard Willie Colon said, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “Right now, we just lost to the f— Buffalo Bills.”
Colon called the up-and-down nature of their season a “broken record,” and wide receiver David Nelson said there was “a lack of maturity” in their inability to do anything two weeks in a row.
Mostly, the Jets appear to be what many imagined going into the season, a talented defense with a rookie quarterback who has been alternately acceptable and “awful,” which was his word for it yesterday.
Until they can decide which one they’re going to be as a team, consistency will be impossible.
