The New York Jets entered the season with Super Bowl expectations and high aspirations.
Of course, trading for one of the greatest quarterbacks this game has ever seen does that to your team.
Likewise, losing him on the first offensive drive of the season can pour some ice-cold water on those aspirations.
Still, the Jets have managed to stay afloat and have a 4-4 record through the first nine weeks of the season.
Unsurprisingly, most of that production has come from the defense, as their offense has been one of the worst in the league.
To put it in context, NFL analyst Damien Woody revealed that the Jets have only managed to score eight offensive touchdowns this season, also pointing out that one of those was pretty much given to them by the Philadelphia Eagles.
The #Jets have 8 TDs on offense all year and one was gifted to them by the Eagles 🤦🏾♂️

You need more than just field goals to win at the highest level.
Zach Wilson showed some signs of improvement a couple of weeks ago, and Nathaniel Hackett did a solid job of adapting the playbook to him, but still.
The Jets have two elite weapons in Garrett Wilson and Breece Hall, and they can’t seem to make the most of them because of their subpar QB situation and offensive line.
There’s still hope that Aaron Rodgers can come back at some point in the season and lead them to the promised land.
Then again, having a 40-year-old on a repaired Achilles making his return in the playoffs might not be the wisest idea.NEXT: Analyst Shares 1 Concern About Aaron Rodgers’ Potential Comeback
