Jets HC Saleh under massive pressure in 24

New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh has said the team need to get wins in 2024 in one of the most obvious statements ever by a head coach.

“When you lose, you’re a loser,” Saleh said. “I suck, [GM Joe Douglas] sucks, we all suck. It goes with the territory, but the best thing we can do is put our heads down and … go to work. All the feel-good stuff for the offseason doesn’t matter. We’ve got to win football games, and when we win football games all the narratives will change.”

Jets adding pieces in offseason

There’s on question that the Jets have tooled up on offence during the offseason, adding veteran WR Mike Williams and LT Tyron Smith. But Saleh doesn’t think that adds pressure, “It doesn’t, the pressure’s already max-elevated from Year 1 to wherever. There’s always pressure to win. Obviously, we’re all disappointed with the way things worked out a year ago, but I don’t think anyone’s confidence is shook.”

“There was no hiding from it,” Saleh said. “You trade for a guy like Aaron Rodgers, I feel like it would’ve sounded silly if any of us tried to hide from it. But the reality is, winning offseasons doesn’t matter. We’ve got to win football games and no matter how much excitement there is around the organization, no matter how much excitement there is around free agency or the draft, none of it matters.”

We’re just concentrating on football — just football, football and football,” he said. “We want to win games. And getting Aaron back, I know he’s excited to be back. He’s roaring to go, so it’s going to be something really interesting to watch now.”

The Jets need to get to the playoffs in 2024 or they’ll be facing another tear down rebuild in 2025.
