There’s just one thing the “tanking” accusers and outsiders just don’t understand about these 2017 New York Jets: the roster has improved.
Tanking, awful, winless, a disgrace — the beat goes on as it pertains to the ugly words flying in from every corner of the football world regarding the 2017 New York Jets.

These outsiders see names such as Eric Decker, David Harris, Nick Mangold, Darrelle Revis and Brandon Marshall no longer wearing green and immediately raise that right index finger in accusation mode. More specifically, they point that finger in a “tanking” accusation mode.
Daniel Jeremiah of NFL Network has an unnamed executive labeling 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.”
