This one was sad, I’ve now seen this game three times in an attempt to find any quality performances, and I probably wouldn’t find one if I watched it thirty more times. All I can really say is that no one deserves a sticker this week. I might as well pick names out of a hat.
In all my seasons writing this article, no game has ever been this hard to watch or this hard to find quality performances. You could make a point for Mekhi Becton, who was playing pretty well before his injury showed us how bad it would be without him. Nate Hairston had a tone-setting tackle on special teams, but unfortunately the tone had already been set to failure. Outside of that, just about every player showed more bad than good out there for 4 quarters.
So for the first time, I am giving the stickers to no one. The Jets looked like a high school team playing against the SEC and lost to a team that is now 2-1 in no small part due to the fact that their opponents are a combined 1-8 (with that only win being against the Colts.) I do not want to make a habit out of this, but this effort was pathetic and I can’t reward anyone for it. At this rate, No One may end up leading the team in stars.
So there you have it, three weeks in and the table stands:
No One (1 gold, 1 silver, 1 bronze)
Quinnen Williams 3 points (1 gold)
Marcus Maye 3 points (1 gold)
Mekhi Becton 2 points (1 silver)
Jamison Crowder 2 points (1 silver)
Sam Ficken 1 point (1 bronze)
Bless Austin 1 point (1 bronze)
