Jets hold players-only meeting Tuesday

The Jets have thrown a league-low eight offensive touchdowns in nine games this season. They haven’t had one in the last two games, both losses.

The Jets called a players-only meeting on Tuesday, the team’s day off, to discuss it.

The guys talked, and we had the floor,” wide receiver Garrett Wilson said during his weekly appearance on ESPN New York radio, via Rich Cimini of ESPN. “It was just us. We need to make sure we’re all on the same page as to where we stand and how the hell we get out of this funk, man. That was really the message. When it comes from one of your teammates, it always hits differently. It always resonates a little more.

Jets coach Robert Saleh admitted Monday that changes were needed, but those changes will not include replacing quarterback Zach Wilson or offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett. Wilson’s 74.6 passer rating ranks 30th in the NFL as he has thrown five touchdowns and six interceptions.

The only change so far is the release of running back Michael Carter.

Garrett Wilson said the players are “really sorry for the product we’ve put on the field offensively this season so far.”

Starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers continues to speak out I’m coming back this seasonbut if the Jets are out of action, what’s the point?

The players therefore hope that the team meeting can shake them out of their torpor and put them back in the race.

“We don’t want to finish the season and look back like we should have done it sooner. . . so let’s talk about it now,” Garrett Wilson said. “I hope it leads to results, but the fact that we do this and do the right thing by calling a players-only meeting and talking doesn’t guarantee anything. We still have to go out and do it, but we’re taking the right measures and we turn over every stone because it matters to us.
