The Jets are 0-6. They are losing games by more points than anyone in the NFL. It’s been hard to watch. We need to provide Jets fans with some relief during these difficult times. That’s why on a brand new episode of the “Gang’s All Here” podcast, Brian Costello and I open the show with a Jets fan therapy session. I play the part of myself, an angry Jets fan. Costello plays the role of Dr. Coz, the therapist trying his best to console me.
Dr. Coz recommends doing things like taking a Sunday away from the Jets, seeing the fall foliage or doing a project. As much as I want an apple cider donut right now, I can’t miss a Jets game. “Jake, go watch NFL RedZone.” Oh, where I can see Robby Anderson light it up? Jamal Adams sack the quarterback? Le’Veon Bell score for the best team in football? Yeah, I’ll pass. It would not be surprising if the Jets won Week 17 against the Patriots to miss out on the No. 1 pick and Trevor Lawrence. Oh, the pain! The final prescription is drinking alcohol, which may be the only option watching the Jets offense fail to move the ball. We end the therapy session with a few deep breaths before moving on.
We then dive into Sunday’s game against the Bills. Will the Jets have Sam Darnold back under center? Will he have Denzel Mims finally on the field and his top three receivers playing? What can we expect from the Jets offense Sunday? Rookie Bryce Hall finally got on the practice field Wednesday, which led to a discussion on TikTok’s Bryce Hall and why our youth is doomed wanting to be TikTok stars. We then make our predictions for Sunday’s game. We end the segment with our thoughts on Tua Tagovailoa taking over for Ryan Fitzpatrick at QB in Miami.
In “Brian’s Book” this week, Coz looks back at the day that Geno Smith was punched in the face at training camp. He recounts Todd Bowles coming down for an impromptu press conference to break the news and the media coming in bunches to Jets camp in what was one of the craziest days in Jets land.
Former Jets offensive guard and ESPN analyst Damien Woody then joins the podcast. Woody gives his thoughts on this Jets team looking like an “expansion team,” his time with the Lions and how bad they were and if a coaching change during the season made any difference. Woody also looks back to his time with the Jets from 2008-2010, why it worked under Rex Ryan, building a strong offensive line and what the Jets need to do to establish a culture. Woody says you have to have people on the same page in the power structure, starting with the GM and head coach. The big fella talks about this Jets offensive line, Mekhi Becton, the job Joe Douglas has done so far, Woody and Christopher Johnson wanting to win and many former Jets on ESPN with him these days.
