The New York Jets are not a good football team right now, sitting on a 1-3 record as the NFL season reaches its quarter mark.
After the Jets most recent defeat, a 27-17 reverse against the Seattle Seahawks at MetLife Stadium, serious questions are being asked of Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
FitzMagic has been anything but magic to start the season, following up his six-interception performance against the Kansas City Chiefs with three picks against the Seahawks. However, it appears that the Jets locker room is still behind their QB.
When asked by reporters how the quarterback is doing, Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall said that the former Harvard man is doing fine.
"The usual Fitz," Marshall said, via ESPN. "That's what we love about the guy. He's our anchor. He keeps everything steady."
According to Marshall, a lot of the bad throws Fitz has been making haven't been the fault of the quarterback, but his receiving corps being poor.
"When you break down Fitz's interceptions, I can say four or five of those are the wide receiver's fault," he stated.
"The in-cut in Kansas City, that was on us. Jalin (Marshall) ran a horrible route. Last game, the last one, I ran a post route. I was supposed to run a slant. He gave me a slant route. That's on me. That's bad communication. I was supposed to get that."
The Jets face the Steelers this week. Another multi-pick performance and New York could be putting Geno Smith back into the lineup.
