The Jets employ a team of young promising players.
It hasn’t been a memorable season at Florham Park.
But don’t let the results in the first 13 weeks cast a shadow over the potentially bright future. Jet plane own.
The front office run by Joe Douglas made various moves in the 2021 draft that resulted in the team recruiting a solid pool of freshmen.
Take the lead by starting midfield Zach Wilson, Gang Green’s rookie class could be at the forefront of a memorable era of football.
The head coach overseeing the class also sees potential, despite his team currently trailing 3-9.
“I know the results, this is a results oriented business, I want to make sure that is clear. So we understand that there are wins and losses, but the reality is that you have to look through and see, what is the building and organization puzzle and what direction this team needs to go to get us into this game. That long-standing discussion as it relates to the knockout stages and the championship, and that picture is super clear. This rookie class is amazing,” Robert Saleh told NewsdayBob Glauber’s and the rest of the media on Wednesday. “The youth we have on this team is amazing, some of the vets we have on this team, there are a lot of really great things to work with on this squad, and there are a lot of guys that we will come back from injury will add to this team.
“This team has a lot of really exciting games and a lot to look forward to, but it’s still happening, we have five games left, and let’s play one game at a time and focus on making sure. that we are doing everything to continue to strengthen our identity and the direction we want to go with our plans and then obviously the players, with the midfielders, the receivers, the young high school that we went, there is still a lot of growth to be had in those positions. That’s where we’re constantly trying to make sure we maximize every bit. ”
Injuries have clearly affected the Jets’ young core. Wilson missed four games due to a knee injury earlier this season. Re-run Michael Carter, arguably the team’s top rookie, is currently on the bench with a sprained ankle and has to miss at least one more game.
Wideout Elijah Moore is also day by day with a quadriplegia before Week 14.
At least on the attacking end, a Wilson was developed in conjunction with Carter, Moore, and a squad that included rookies Alijah Vera-Tucker and Mekhi Becton (the 2020 first-round player who has been out since Week 1 with an injury). knee injury) could be damaging if health-related problems do not arise by 2022.
Time will tell how this young core evolves – the fan base is holding out hope in the promising group.
