Mike LaFleur put himself on hot seat

Evaluate the Jets’ 23-6 loss to the Seahawks in Week 17 in Seattle on Sunday.


This was another terrible performance in a must-win game. The Jets played two straight games without scoring a touchdown. The Jets moved the ball around on several drives, but the end he couldn’t find the zone. QB Mike White (23/46, 240 yards, 2 INT, 47.4 rating) was terrible. White’s throw was off all day. He could have had a broken rib or a Seahawks defenseman. Anyway, he was no good. The offensive line gave up his four sacks. The running game has gotten better, but it’s still not good enough. RB Ty Johnson (8 rushes, 46 yards) gave the team an early spark. Rookie WR Garrett Wilson had only 3 catches for 11 targets, including a crucial 4-down drop.

The proud defense is rattling in the early stages of the game. RB Kenneth Walker (23 rushes, 133 yards) on the first play from scrimmage he scored a 60-yard run. QB Geno Smith (18/29, 183 yards, 2 TDs, 103.1 rating) made some plays early and the Seahawks scored on his first three possessions. The Jets calmed their defense down after the first quarter but failed to produce anything and give the offense a short field. CB’s Sauce Gardner and DJ Reed each played another strong game. Seahawks star WR DK Metcalf (1 catch, 3 yards) didn’t matter.

It was another game where the offense desperately needed help from special teams but got none. Returner Braxton Berrios did not set a field position for the Jets. P Braden Mann he punts 24 yards. K Greg Zuerlein missed a 57-yard long goal from 44 yards where he scored two fields.

How can you miss a game with the playoffs looming? That’s what the Jets did for the second week in a row on Sunday, watching playoff hopes fade away. Robert Saleh has to answer why his team has been so bad. Offensive coordinator Mike Lafleur will be in the hot seat after the offense fails to score a touchdown in two straight games. The Jets are 7-4, playing it all and are currently on a five-game losing streak. Players deserve a lot of responsibility, but so do coaches.
