Joe Flacco speaks out on how rough season could impact Jets’ young talent
The New York Jets are the only team in the NFL that has yet to win a game this season, putting them in a position to hold the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Joe Flacco, who’s starting in place of an injured Sam Darnold right now, spoke about how New York’s struggles could impact the team’s young players:
“Hopefully, a lot of these young guys are going to be able to look back at this, no matter what our record ends up being, and in some way feel like this situation hardened them and molded them into the player that they want to become.” — quarterback Joe Flacco, 35, who has experienced a Super Bowl championship with the Ravens and 0-9 with the Jets said, via ESPN’s Rich Cimini.
With the Jets on a bye week, they will record just as many wins as they have all season with zero. Adam Gase’s squad boasts a dismal 0-9 record and things look bleak with Gase calling the shots in New York.
Despite the Jets being an NFL team — technically speaking — it’s hard to see them winning a game this season. Flacco, who won a Super Bowl in his career with the Baltimore Ravens, doesn’t want the losses this season to negatively affect them in the future.
While New York has been the worst team in the NFL, they do have some young talented players in Mekhi Becton, Quinnen Williams, and Denzel Mims.
Regardless of who the quarterback and head coach is next season, Flacco wants the young players on the roster to use this season as motivation moving forward.
