New York Jets, NFL Draft

The Jets are a hot mess. And so is the broadcast of their game against the Bengals.

CBS’s screen has gone blue at least twice so far during the fourth quarter for those watching on WCBS-TV in New York. And the game is now being shown with limited camera angles as the CBS studio crew provides commentary. It appears all audio is out at MetLife Stadium.

Some fans are not amused. Others are.

Maybe former President Donald Trump can call and complain on the Jets’ behalf. From yesterday:

Former President Donald Trump is apparently a big Robert Saleh fan.

Trump claimed Friday night that he called Saleh to congratulate him after the Jets’ miraculous comeback win over the Browns last Sunday. Trump made the assertion during a rally in Wilmington, North Carolina.

“It was the craziest thing,” said Trump after providing a cliff notes recap of the fourth-quarter mayhem for the crowd.

“And I called the coach, because I think the coach is like a great guy. General manager (Joe Douglas), too, coach. And I said, ‘Coach, you’re greater than Vince Lombardi.’ Because Vince Lombardi never did that. He was never able to pull out a game like that. That was the craziest thing I’ve ever seen. The game was done. It was over.”

Trump brought up the Jets for a reason. Team owner Woody Johnson and his wife, Suzanne, were in attendance at the rally according to Trump. He pointed to them off-stage, but the stream camera did not pan out to show them. Woody Johnson served as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom during Trump’s presidency and was a top donor and fundraiser for Trump during the 2016 and 2020 election cycles.
