Mosley ticked off says Jets aren’t respected by opponents

| Local News | Fox News

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (AP) – CJ Mosley felt the disrespect when the Philadelphia Eagles failed to shake hands in midfield during the pre-game draw.

The New York Jets linebacker saw it when he said Fletcher Cox made fun of Robert Saleh as the coach argued with officials over an appeal.

“At the end of the day, it’s all about respect,” Mosley said after a 33-18 loss on Sunday. “And right now the teams don’t respect us. It’s well deserved, whether it’s the self-inflicted injuries or the history of the Jets.”

Mosley has been around long enough to know what respect looks like, especially since his first five NFL seasons with Baltimore. And the usually reserved linebacker was as excited after the game as he got.

“It was all over the field,” Mosley said of the feeling of disrespect. “As a competitor, as a warrior, when you fight with your brothers, it pisses you off.”

Wins have been rare during his time with the Jets, and another brutal loss won’t help matters.

“The past doesn’t matter,” Mosley said. “The guys who are here, the coaches who are here, we can influence the future. And we can affect right now. So today we haven’t done our job and the results are the results.

And they are not good.

The Jets fell to 3-9 in what will be an 11th straight season – the NFL’s longest active drought – without a playoff appearance. In it, they allowed alternate quarterback Gardner Minshew to lead the Eagles to scores on each of their first seven possessions. And the only time Philadelphia was stopped was during their last fourth quarter practice with the game out of reach.

“What’s disheartening is that I know that when we watch this tape and sit down together,” Saleh said, “there’s going to be a lot of missed opportunities that we’ve had from a point of view defensive to bring the ball back to our attack, especially when they were rolling.

“Especially on some of those third practice where we could have been a lot better.”

The Eagles have gone 6 of 13 in those situations. They also converted their attempt to a fourth try.

But the most overwhelming moment for the Jets’ defense came in the third quarter – and really, for most of the period.

The Eagles held the ball for 13:50, running 24 plays for 81 yards while scoring three runs. And it came after Philadelphia scored a field goal just before half-time. Meanwhile, the Jets only played three games in the third quarter, gaining 3 yards in 70 seconds.

“They had the ball to complete the first half,” Saleh said. “Then they go eight minutes, then it’s a quick workout for us, and then they have the ball again for a few minutes. So you watch over an hour in real time where our attack was on the ground for a short minute. “

Philadelphia held the overall advantage in possession time: 35:36 to 24:24.

But things started off promisingly when Braxton Berrios returned the opening kickoff for 79 yards and Zach Wilson found Elijah Moore for a 3-yard touchdown moments later. But Alex Kessman – signed from the practice squad on Saturday to replace ailing Matt Ammendola – missed the extra point in his NFL debut.

Minshew and the Eagles responded with a 36-yard touchdown pass to Dallas Goedert to take a 7-6 lead.

Wilson and the Jets came back straight away with a one-yard touchdown run, but Kessman was still left on the extra point.

“I just have to do them,” Kessman said. “It’s what I do for a living. I have to do these kicks. There are no excuses.

Mosley and Hall acknowledged that the Jets did not specifically prepare for Minshew, saying the Eagles offense would be similar whether the save or Jalen Hurts were under center.

But the defense just couldn’t stop Minshew from running the Eagles onto the field.

Again and again.

“It’s disappointing,” Saleh said. “Our offense was rolling. We scored three touchdowns early in the first half and Zach and the receivers, the running game – everything was working great. If we could have stopped early, it felt like our offense would have turned around and got a few points.

“We had a few chances there, but obviously it wasn’t good enough.”

This has been the story of the season for the Jets, whose defense was meant to be a force as Wilson adjusted to the NFL.

Instead, he’s been one of the worst overall units in the league.

And no one respects the Jets.

“We all hold ourselves accountable, we all stand on the same level,” Mosley said. “So we have to make sure we’re always on the same page. And when we see things on the pitch and when we see things off the pitch, we have to communicate and talk to each other. And it’s top to bottom.
