Woody Johnson says Jets are rapidly improving


The New York Jets are coming off of an embarrassing loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 8, but owner Woody Johnson doesn’t appear to be too concerned about the direction of the team. In his latest comments, Johnson has said that he believes the Jets are continuing to get better and that the rapid improvement from his team can’t be ignored.

We have a very young team,” Johnson said, via the New York Daily News. “I think it’s the third-youngest team in the NFL and it’s not an excuse. You’re going to have games like that with a young quarterback and young team — seven new players on defense — so it’s going to take them a while to coalesce. But they’re improving rapidly, and I think the coaches are very happy with the progress.

“I think we’re a good team, too. If we’re prepared properly, I think we should do very well.”

Johnson is right about one thing — this is a very young team.

As for the improvement, I’m not so sure.

It is hard to tell how well this team is improving with their wild inconsistencies. One week the Jets look like a top threat in the AFC, while other weeks they look like the lowly franchise that we were expecting them to be when the season begin.
