In 2016, Quincy Enunwa was the Jets best offensive skill player. Eric Decker got hurt early, Brandon Marshall turned into a pumpkin – like he does at every stop – and Enunwa was 2nd on the team in receptions (58) and first in yards, yards per catch, TDs and 20-yard receptions.
His stats weren’t eye-popping, but on a wretched 5-11 squad, he was the lone offensive bright spot.
But he hurt his neck today in practice and won’t play this season for the Jets.
On a team that already had 1-2 win talent (at best), you can legitimately ask if they’re going 0-16, and it won’t be mean or a hot take. They’re that bad.
The good news: There are some damn good QBs at the college level. Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen and Josh Allen will all be in contention for the #1 pick in 2018.
The bad news: The Jets will threaten to become the first team since the 2008 Lions to go 0-16.
After releasing Marshall and Decker, and losing Jalin Marshall to a 4-game suspension, here’s who Bryce Petty/Christian Hackenberg/Josh McCown will be throwing to:
Robby Anderson (undrafted) 42 catches, 2 TDs
Charone Peake (7th round pick) 19 catches, 0 TDs
ArDarius Stewart (Alabama, rookie)
It really does feel like 0-16. Who should they get as a head coach next year? I’d vote for, “whoever Sam Darnold wants.”
