New York Jets strong safety Jamal Adams decides to give a so-called NFL expert a pass on the same day he announces the creation of his own YouTube channel.
These so-called NFL “experts” just don’t get it.
Honestly, how many of them actually understand football? Are 100 percent of them simply computer nerds who’ve never played the game? Can we at least get a handful of former players sprinkled in for a better, more realistic sense of what’s being dished out to the public?
I’m not sure if Mike Clay ever played the game, but New York Jets strong safety Jamal Adams said a lot by not saying anything recently about one of his “hot” takes.
Clay, of ESPN, put forth his claim that the Jets roster is currently the worst in the NFL.

Adams decided to respond by really not saying anything at all—due to the fact it’s God’s day (Sunday).
I really wanna say something ignorant towards you for this…. but it’s Gods Day today. I’ma let you slide. https://t.co/DNN9Rxyqpd

At ESNY, I even had to combat the general public narrative that the Jets roster was the worst in the NFL—I mean, worst in a decade, that prompted 0-16 and tank claims. Sure enough, the team won five games, one shy of my August prediction.
That’s really not “worst roster in a decade” reality, is it?
It all started when Daniel Jeremiah proclaimed the Jets have the worst roster in the league at the draft. He then tweeted out that an NFL personnel man called the roster “the worst in a decade.”
From an NFL exec- "I think the Jets might have the worst roster I've seen in a decade."

Of course, those who understand football had to combat the claim (like us), and, of course, it played out as not even close to being true (five wins).
On another front, Adams unveiled the creation of his new YouTube channel on Sunday.
Just launched my YouTube! Make sure y'all subscribe…big things coming soon! https://t.co/CujsdF1aYa pic.twitter.com/3fyc8nARc6

Knowing this guy, it should be an entertaining place to follow throughout the entire calendar year.
