Jets tackle: “We’re in the world of suck right now”

For generations, football coaches have conditioned players to speak in meaningless cliches, to offer little in the way of insight, and less in the way of art.

Kelvin Beachum has resisted that urge. Despite spending eight years in a league that hates clarity and beauty of language, the Jets offensive tackle is nothing less than a poet.

“It’s frustrating, but this is the NFL,” Beachum said after last night’s loss to the Browns, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “We’re in the world of suck right now.”

The Jets have been sailing toward that mythical land for years, like Odysseus on a long quest for home.

Last night’s loss, without their starting quarterback because of mononucleosis and his backup getting injured early, leaving them in the hands of someone named Luke Falk, might have gotten them closer to the shore than they’ve been in some time.

And we should all be grateful we have a wordsmith like Beachum to document the journey for us all.

  1. Framegate I Karma lives on. You’ve bee in the world of suck or paper tiger suck for many decades.

    Your owner made the bed. Why any FA would openly choose to go there, no one has any idea other than just take the most money and be selfish.

  2. And its about to get worse with the Pats next up.

    Feel bad for Jets fans, its not their fault Darnold didn’t take care of his health properly. He should be on the NFI list not getting paid for his carelessness.

  3. My guess is we’re about to see the equivalent of another MIAMI MASSACRE, just a bit further north as the crow flies….
    Will be over by 1/2 time…. maybe the 1st quarter

  4. So grateful that ,I can see NFL online Stream on NFLSKYTV dot COM­ and I think it’s the best place to watch NFL this year, check by yourself if you don’t believe.

  5. The schedule doesn’t get any easier for a while. Even with Darnold returning, they could easily find themselves 0-6 or even 0-7. Hard to believe that anybody thought the Jets were a potential playoff contender.

    YOu feel bad for cheaters who want their owner to cheat the Pats to try to catch up?

    I don’t.

    I don’t like cheaters.

  7. He is on the Jets, did he expect something different. The Jets are one of the true dumpster fire, failed owner teams of the NFL. They hired Gase (only claim to fame is winning the Manning lottery who doesn’t need an o-coordinator) who failed miserably at Miami and failed to do anything with Tannehill. World of suck is normal operations for the Jets.

    The league needs to start forcing owners to sell if they are consistently in the bottom 5.

  8. Hey kelvin you can start by blocking the edge rusher and not letting them get clean hits on the quarterback. I mean my god you had one of the worst games I’ve ever seen from a left tackle last night

  9. The Jests have been there for most all of the past 51 years. Beachum was in the NFL for 7 of them before signing with the Jete, if he didn’t damn right well know he was in the suck the moment he did it then that proves he belongs there

    So pats started with Steelers, Jets, Dolphins? When will one of those teams win a game? What a cupcake start to the season for the boys from Foxborough.

    Pats don’t make the schedule or lead other bad, arrogant organizations. They do bad things to themselves.

    Yeah, if the league really cared about parity they’d make the Pats play against themselves twice a year

  12. All available quarterbacks are worried. It is a death sentence. There is no offensive line. I believe the Jets, with Dolphins ex coach, will win the battle with the Dolphins for last place. And the Dolphins are losing on purpose.

  13. Myles Garrett pushed Kelvin around at will, which is why we now are down to our 3rd string QB. The fact that Gase never even attempted to adjust to this and provide more protection tells me he sucks more than Kelvin Beachum. Myles Garrett is a Freak!
