What is there really left to say that hasn’t already been said? The Jets are a joke. I watched the Jets and Giants games with my father (a Giants fan) this weekend, and his complaints about the Giants were endless in their 20-19 win. I laughed and waited for him to watch the Jets for the first time this year. He was understandably surprised. Anywho, let’s give out some stickers I guess:
Bronze Star: Avery Williamson (11 tackles)
Avery Williamson was the only Jet who could make a tackle against the Dolphins. He didn’t light the world on fire, but at least he got some Dolphins on the ground. He’s far from the player we saw in 2018 before he suffered a horribly unlucky injury that derailed a promising Jets career. There’s not much more to say.
Silver Star: Brian Poole (3 tackles, 1 INT)
Poole may have the easiest job in sports right now. He is an extremely good slot corner, but it is almost irrelevant because he plays in the same secondary as Pierre Desir and Lamar Jackson, who act as though they are paid by the yards allowed. If I were Poole, I’d look to get traded or released ala Bell and try to find my way to a contender. He deserves better.
Gold Star: Marcus Maye (2 tackles, 1 INT)
I give this star to Marcus Maye because he provided the only 10 seconds of entertainment that I got out of this game. His interception proved that even when the Jets make a great play, they will look like buffoons doing it. Nevertheless, it showed great concentration and he played his first generally solid game since week 1. Gold sticker for Maye.
So there you have it, six weeks in and the table stands:
Jamison Crowder 8 points (2 gold, 1 silver)
Marcus Maye 6 points (2 gold)
Mekhi Becton 3 points (1 silver, 1 bronze)
Sam Ficken 3 points (1 silver, 1 bronze)
No One (1 gold, 1 silver, 1 bronze)
Quinnen Williams 3 points (1 gold)
Brian Poole 2 points (1 silver)
John Franklin-Myers 2 points (1 silver)
Avery Williamson 1 point (1 bronze)
Neville Hewitt 1 point (1 bronze)
Bless Austin 1 point (1 bronze)
