Garrett Wilson isn’t used to losing. After all, the Jets’ talented second-year wideout lost just four times during his three years at Ohio State. His time in Columbus likely contributed to his frustration following Friday’s 34-13 blowout loss to the Dolphins.
It was the fourth consecutive loss for the Jets, who are now 4-7 and way on the outside of the AFC playoff picture. New York’s struggles this year comes on the heels of a 1-7 finish after a 6-3 start to Wilson’s rookie season.
“This sucks. Everything about this season has been tough,” Wilson said afterward. “No one said it was gonna be easy, but nothing’s been easy. We’ve just got to keep the faith, that’s all.”
Wilson’s comments belie that of a frustrated player. And who came blame him? A season that had so much promise has turned into another losing season for Gang Green.
Obviously, things would probably be different had Aaron Rodgers not suffered a serious Achilles injury on New York’s first offensive possession of the season. While other things have happened to the Jets since then, they’d likely be in a better spot than they currently find themselves had Rodgers not gotten injured.
