New York Jets stud defensive lineman Leonard Williams had some interesting things to say about so-called diehard fans. 

New York Jets star defensive end Leonard Williams has not been a fan of all the criticism from the so-called “diehard Jets fans.” Williams has been one of the very few bright spots for the Jets this season recording seven of the team’s 22 sacks.

In a recent interview with reporter James Parks of CBS sports, Williams said, “its hard to hear I have been with this team since organized activities. We have been grinding for months, we have had a lot of ups and downs.” He added that he believes fans have been too quick to loose faith in the team and their future.

Williams added that the fans don’t get to see all of the work the team puts in week in and week out, and they also don’t realize that no one on the team is 100 percent healthy at this point of the season.


While the star end has a point, the fans don’t get to see what goes on behind the scenes but just what happens on Sundays, which has been a year full of bad games and losses. The Jets will look to build a better team this offseason and compete in 2017 like they did in 2015.
