It’s common knowledge that the New York Jets are an absolute mess. Apparently, Jets running back Chris Johnson prefers to act unaware of this fact.
The former 2,000-yard rusher has seen a significant drop in usage over the past few weeks because of an increased workload for teammate Chris Ivory, who has 101 rushing attempts to Johnson’s 67 this season.
During the Jets’ 43-23 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, quarterbacks Geno Smith and Michael Vick combined for a total of four interceptions (three by Smith in the first quarter alone). Johnson was asked about the team’s struggles behind center after the game and had a pretty great reply.
Well, Johnson “be in the game,” but he had just three rushes for 7 yards while he watched Ivory rush 13 times for 43 yards and two touchdowns.
The 1-7 Jets hope to regain some dignity next Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.
