Kick your feet up. Relax. Enjoy a stress-free weekend. The Jets are off. It’s the bye week. That means you don’t have to worry about whether your team makes or ruins your Sunday afternoon.
The Jets, though, have some work to do during their vacation.
It wasn’t a sterling start to the Robert Saleh, Zach Wilson era. The Jets are 1-4. A lot has contributed to do that. If they want a stronger finish than start to the season, they have some questions they must answer.
Well, here are the top five.
Why can’t the Jets score before halftime?
The Jets haven’t scored a single point on their first drive of games. In fact, they haven’t scored in the first quarter at all. These aren’t just first-quarter miscues, though. They have just one first-half touchdown all season. They’ve scored 13 total points before halftime.
That’s beyond bad.
As seen against Atlanta, the offense’s consistent struggles at the start of games is beginning to have a trickle-down effect on the rest of the team. The defense is basically playing an extra quarter because of how often it’s on the field. While Wilson and company eventually figure things out in the second half, it’s too little, too late. They’ve already put so much pressure on their defense that, when they need a fourth-quarter stop (as seen against Carolina, Tennessee and Atlanta), the defense is exhausted.
Offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur is under intense scrutiny and receiving a bulk of the blame. It’s not all him, though. Wilson is missing throws.
