Here are five questions about the Seahawks week 14 foe, the New York Jets.
The Seahawks need a win in week 14 to keep pace with the Rams in the NFC West. Los Angeles won in week 14 already with a Thursday night defeat of the Patriots. The Jets, Seattle’s opponent on Sunday, don’t need a win. Maybe they even need a loss to stay in position to get the first pick in the 2021 NFL draft. But New York isn’t going to roll over and Seattle will have to earn the win.
How are Jets fans feeling?
12th Man Rising: Sure, the Jets are winless but they also have a lot of high draft picks in future drafts. How do Jets fans feel about this season specifically and how do they feel about the potential of the future?
Justin Fried: This season has been exactly how you’d expect any 0-12 season to have gone. That is to say, it’s been a complete and utter disaster in every possible way. A poor roster combined with inept coaching has led to what will likely go down as the worst team in franchise history. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully, that light is currently playing quarterback for the Clemson Tigers as we speak.
The new coaching staff will be paired with a new quarterback and a seemingly competent general manager. It will be up to Joe Douglas to use the Jets’ assets to drag this team out of the depths of despair. With a boatload of cap space and a ton of draft capital, he’ll be given the opportunity to do so. This season has been an expected trainwreck, but the future is undoubtedly brighter — not that that’s saying very much.
