How the Jets can turn things around, according to Woody Johnson
Following their season opener loss against the Ravens, many questioned if this was the old Jets team. However, five weeks have been a huge improvement in the NFL. The team has not only Gang Green won four of its past five games and the team is now in the thick of being a contender for the playoffs. “It’s a start, it’s a great start, and the only thing that counts is that,” Jets owner Woody Johnson told the Daily News’ Pat Leonard during the NFL owner’s meetings held in Manhattan this week. We are extremely happy. Green Bay: If you’re engaged in something in Green Bay it’s pretty awesome heading to Lambeau.
Robert Saleh assumed control of the Jets team, which was able to boast only one winning season in the franchise’s history. The team’s previous owner Adam Gase had run the team to the breaking point and the Jets roster resembled one of an expansion team. Saleh knew right away that he had to work hard in order to build a winning team.
The offseason of this year saw the Jets include a number of veteran players. One of them was D.J. cornerback. Reed was a known face to Saleh when he was the defensive coordinator for the er. Following the start of training sessions, Kwon Alexander was signed to linebacker position and Duane Brown was signed to be a tackle. Additionally they also signed Jets made a selection of cornerback Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner, wide receiver Garrett Wilson, defensive end Jermaine Johnson and Running back Breece Hall all within the first selections of the NFL Draft. The team is now very identical to the rookies which is with the leadership of Kyle Shanahan and Saleh.
As coach, Saleh directed the San Francisco ers to a performance record, before the team lost in Super Bowl LIV to the Kansas City Chiefs. In spite of two losing seasons and around, the ers rely on their defense, running game and special teams beat opponents, much like that the New York Jets are currently performing. “Our style of play is based on technique, effort and violence,” Saleh said. They are the three things that players and coaches believe they can control.
There’s no still image. I’m looking over the tape, and it appears dim and silent. What are you seeing? What are you telling me about your tape? Your play style is crucial, so these are the points we’d love to hear about on your tape. It’s crucial to us that we see men playing well, with precision and with a little bit of aggression. For me, particularly in during the last two weeks it’s as if that aspect of our game is getting faster and better, but still has a ways to take. This is a good signal.
The players tell Saleh “You’re performing a great job in managing your time and things that you can control.” Saleh and the Jets players, frequently praised on the Jets team for performing so superior to last year’s. After a rough start, it is difficult to disagree with the team’s performance up to now. In the meantime, Green and White teams have discovered various strategies to win games particularly in the final quarter. Hall is their offensive leader in victories over the Dolphins, Packers.
All of us can learn from one another.
It’s clear that coaches are keen to see players exert more focus and effort. The team is heading toward the right direction but there is still much to be done.
