The Jets have lost 10 straight games to the Patriots. The last time they beat them was their lone year the past decade over .500, when they went 10-6 and missed the playoffs in 2015. Does that change on Sunday with Zach Wilson against Mac Jones in the Jets home opener?
To preview that game, we bring you a new episode of the “Gang’s All Here” podcast with Brian Costello and me. We have a tremendous conversation with former Jets QB and 18-year NFL vet Josh McCown.
Gang’s All Here Podcast with Jake & Coz:
- INJURY BUG: Mekhi Becton is out at least until the bye. Jets have lost multiple linebackers and their punter to IR as well as their starting safety Lamarcus Joyner for the season.
- MIKE LaFLEUR/DENZEL MIMS: LaFleur is going to need to change the game plan to get Zach Wilson to release the ball quicker with the offensive line not helping much. What is going on with Denzel Mims and why is he barely seeing any action? He has a skill set that not all Jets receivers have and they need to find a way to utilize him in the offense.
- JETS-PATRIOTS PREVIEW: Can the Jets end their 10-game losing streak to the Patriots Sunday? Will Jets fans pack the house for the home opener? Me and Coz think this will be a close game, but the Patriots prevail with a tight win.
Josh McCown Interview:
Former Jets QB (2017-18), 18 seasons in NFL (2002-2020)
- NC CONNECTION: My mom tutored Josh’s daughter for a few years in high school in North Carolina. Josh also volunteered to coach football at Marvin Ridge High School, where I spent my senior year.
- HIS NFL FUTURE: Will he come back and play for a team again as a backup QB? He’ll answer the phone, but he is enjoying coaching his son’s high school team at Rusk High School in Texas. Continues to stay in shape.
- ZACH WILSON & JETS’ FUTURE: A lot of things to be excited about with Zach. Jets did a good job of resetting with new QB and new head coach. Fan base should be excited about where this team is headed.
- NY MEDIA/PRESSURE: Definitely more pressure in NY. He respected the job of the journalists in NY to tell stories. There are no missteps in NY. Was nervous before coming to NY to play.
