“I don’t actually care what anyone actually thinks, if I’m being sincere,” Wilson stated. “I need to see enchancment in myself, so far as after I watch the tape on the finish of the day, do I see enchancment. Not essentially taking a look at a stat line or simply the win column. After we deal with our enterprise at every particular person participant, the wins will handle themselves. And so I simply obtained to have the ability to go in there and grade myself primarily based off of how I’m doing every single play of simply making the perfect determination I can.”
Wilson stated his purpose is to play quick, inside the offense and provides his playmakers probabilities to make performs.
For the 2-8 Jets, this can be a recreation of their weight class. The two-8 Texans are a group they will compete with and presumably get their third win. In fact, the Texans view the Jets the identical means. The Texans are coming off a surprising 22-13 win over the Titans final week and ought to be feeling good about themselves.
The Jets have misplaced three straight video games, together with last week’s 24-17 loss to the Dolphins. That was a recreation the Jets had an opportunity to win however they made repeated boneheaded errors and value themselves that chance.
The dialog across the group this week has been about not committing the self-inflicted wounds that price you video games.
“That’s what it’s all about. When you may have these conditions like that, are you able to be taught from it?” linebacker C.J. Mosley stated. “Whether or not you alter it on the sideline the following play or whether or not it comes again up a number of weeks down the street, that’s when groups begin to take their soar after they cease making these … the issues that beat them or the issues that we do to get us beat, get rid of these errors and never have them reoccur, that’s how we take one small step to get higher.”
