Jets fans are embracing the tank

It is time for our look at the results from the weekly SB Nation Reacts surveys.

Each week SB Nation ask fans of the Jets and the other 31 teams their views on their favorite team and issues across the NFL.

The Jets lost to the Raiders in shocking fashion last weekend on a touchdown with 5 seconds left in the game. There were few tears shed in the fanbase according to our poll, however. 73% of Jets fans who answered our survey said they were happy with the loss.

Fans clearly want a good Draft pick more than a win.

There is some debate whether the coaching staff also wanted a good pick more than the win. After the game there were plenty of theories that Gregg Williams sent an ill-advised blitz to lose the game on purpose for Draft positioning. Those theories took a hit with the firing of Williams on Monday. You’d have to believe Williams willingly made a call that got him fired for them to work.

Most Jets fans we surveyed seemed to agree this was a far-fetched scenario.

These results might explain why Jets fan confidence rose slightly after the last second loss from 18% to 23%.
