It has been an ugly first four games, but things are about to start looking up for the Jets, WFAN's Boomer Esiason said Monday.
The Eagles blew out the Jets 31-6 on Sunday, dropping New York to 0-4. Gang Green, of course, was playing again with third-string quarterback Luke Falk, as Sam Darnold missed his third straight game with mononucleosis. (Second-stringer Trevor Simien suffered a season-ending ankle injury in Week 2.)
Falk is clearly in over his head, Esiason said on Monday's "Boomer and Gio" show.
"They're noncompetitive on offense. They're competitive everywhere else," he said. "And they'll get competitive once Sam Darnold comes back. So it's not even trying to break this whole thing down and figure all this other stuff out about what the Jets are doing and all this. I mean, their quarterback (Luke Falk) doesn't belong on an NFL football field. That's the bottom line. They're unprepared. And this is their third quarterback — it's not their second quarterback. And I'm not saying that they would've been any better with Trevor Siemian as their quarterback, but when you watch the Bills and you watch the Ravens win on the road yesterday, what do they have? They have their second-year quarterbacks. You know, those are the guys that make plays."
