Jets Week 3 Anti-Game Ball: Everybody

NFL: New York Jets at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets lost yesterday, which means it is time to give out the third anti-game ball of the 2021 season.

Last year I regularly felt compelled to give out special anti-game balls to entire units or even the entire team. Many games were such dismal performances that singling out just one person didn’t make sense.

I hoped we could avoid doing something similar this year. We did for two weeks. Even though the Jets started 0-2, the failures at least were not across the board.

That changed this week. The loss to Denver was a top to bottom failure. To quote the great Jim Mora, “Coaching did a horrible job. The players did a horrible job...It stunk”

The offense and defense were both dreadful in the game. It is difficult to name five players who were effective against Denver.

So I give my anti-game ball to everybody. The entire Jets team deserves special blame for that debacle.
