What has happened to the Jets' Special Teams?
This has been the worst season of special teams for the Jets in I don't know how long... the Kotite era? Westhoff has been the best in the biz for two decades, but his units this season have been unrecognizable.
Even during Sunday's win; The Jets had a FG blocked, a fake punt that should have been abandoned, they surrendered a kick return for a TD that was negated by a holding penalty that was not what you would call an egregious violation....
The Jets can't cover kicks, can't cover punts, can't field a punt, can't hold the line on field goal attempts, and can't protect the punter.
The only positives have been Folk, Malone, and the kick returning (not punt returning.) Malone is the best punter the Jets have had in forever, so we can be certain the Jets will stay true to form and let him walk at the end of the year.
The Jets have almost always had the edge over their opponent on special teams. Not anymore.
