The Giants are now 1-2 on the year after a loss to the 49ers, and if the Jets can’t finally solve the Patriots on Sunday, they will be 1-2 as well.
So, Boomer says, the New York football season, which began with more collective hype than we’ve seen in over a decade, is dangerously close to becoming an all-out disaster.
“You have two veteran quarterbacks in Geno Smith and Josh Allen, and then of course, Tua,” Boomer said, noting the schedule ahead for Big Blue. “If you have to play [Tagovailoa] and that offense, what we’ve seen from them so far is super speed. There’s no way the Giants can keep up with them. So that’s why this game against Seattle - if they can get this game and split one of the next two, which is unlikely on the road against those two teams - this thing can go south in a hurry.”
Gio doesn’t have much faith that the Jets will snap their 14-game skid against the Pats, and if they can’t find a way to win, the Chiefs and Eagles are on the schedule in the three weeks ahead, leaving Gio not very hopeful that Gang Green’s season won’t collapse.
“I feel the same way about the Jets,” Gio said. “If you lose this game, you can’t tell me that 1-5 isn’t a possibility, unless there’s some kind of miraculous fix with the quarterback.
“The whole thing just absolutely sucks. we try to come up with some sort of positive thing, we really do. But it’s just so unfortunate. You can’t say the season is over from the standpoint of maybe having a winning season and making the playoffs, but if you’re like me and don’t believe Zach Wilson can do it, and you believe they can lose this game, and they don’t have a solution, we’re talking about the season being over…this thing can go from 1-2 to 1-5 real quick.”
