Tension is forming within the New York Jets’ organization.
On Friday, defensive coordinator Gregg Williams unveiled a veil on coach Adam Gase’s offense, suggesting that defensive struggles are not entirely a defense offense.
The 0-5 Jets, facing the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, allowed 32.2 points per game, worse than every team except the Dallas Cowboys.
“It’s not a very good number – and many of them are not all defensive,” Williams said after practice on Friday. “These are points on the board and we need to do a good job of them, and how you do it they will achieve goals in the field faster, to do a better job on things of that kind. of position in the field.
“As you can see, scoring is in the league, but it still hurts me,”; he said.
Seven words hang in the air: “Many of them are not all defensive.” When asked what he meant by that, Williams became cryptic.
“You need to know this,” he said, ending his video call to journalists.
The hostile Gase will not be available to comment, as he has already spoken to reporters.
Williams may be referring to the fact that the offense was responsible for the 12 points allowed – Sam Darnold’s two interceptions for touchdowns in a Week 3 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
The offense also became tough on defense by averaging just 15 points per game and ranking near the bottom of the league in total yards and possession time.
But Williams’ unit did not go any better, yielding 394 yards per game and recorded a final third-down defense. Defense is also plagued by undisciplined gaming. The Jets scored 21 defensive penalties, second in the league. They led the league to a roughing-the-passer penalty (seven).
“We were put in some unfortunate situations up to the field position,” safety Bradley McDougald said.
“At the end of the day, our job is to get out there and avoid the points,” he added. “We’ll just have to get out there and make a lot of plays.”
It turned out to be a tumultuous week for the Jets, who released the running back Le’Veon Bell after he fought Gase for more than a year and complained about his role.
The gas was tightened due to the expulsion of Bell. He declined to comment Friday when asked about Bell’s signing with Kansas City Leaders.
“Focused on Miami, man,” he said.
