2. Lackluster Fundamentals, Focus
There’s one way to describe the Jets defensive fundamentals as of late: disgusting.
How many missed tackles have we seen? Marcus Williams, during his four-quarter experiment at safety against Oakland, missed enough tackles for an entire career.
One of the more romantic thoughts about Bowles coming in and taking charge was the idea of fundamentals being on point. While Week 1 of the preseason showed us the Jets needed a ton of work in this regard, they quickly righted the ship and showcased what a fundamentally sound football team they could be.
Thanks to a few injuries in key spots, New York has completely let themselves down in this regard.
A strong effort by way of overall fundamentals and focus needs to take place, starting now.
