With the New York Jets sitting at 5-7, yet still in the race for and AFC wild card spot, owner Wody Johnson is pleased with the overall efforts of the team.
“I’m pretty happy with the way things are going,” Johnson said Sunday in a pre-game radio interview with ESPN New York 98.7 FM.
“It’s really the direction of the team and how we think the learning curve is going and whether the young people are absorbing it, and whether it’s a formula that can help you win,” Johnson said.
“We’ve got a young quarterback who is very, very talented,” he said. “Like with all young quarterbacks, he’s learning so much. I think you’ll see him get better and better. I have a lot of confidence in Geno. When he gets better, everyone on the offense, defense and special teams will get better.”
He’s had high praises for a team who hasn’t been as successful as Johnson would have wanted. However, the Jets are not of the race for the postseason by any means, although their chances are getting slimmer and slimmer. They will need a lot of help down the stretch if they hope to make it out of the regular season fighting for a championship.
