1st & 10: Another Ugly Division Loss

Stephen Russo tackles the topics on Jets fans’ minds after a humiliating loss last week against the Bills.

I also understand that we have a very young team and coaching staff, with rookies at three very important positions: Quarterback, Head Coach, and Offensive Coordinator.

My message is very simple: I don’t care.
