Brian Schottenheimer hears the critics
With the Jets mired in a three-game losing streak headed into Monday night's matchup with the Miami Dolphins, much of the criticism has been levied against the New York offense.
In particular, offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer has been in the crosshairs for the criticism, and he told the New York Post he is aware that it comes with the territory when a team is not winning.
"The people that say they don't hear it are lying; you're aware of it," Schottenheimer said yesterday of the criticism. "It comes with the territory. I do the best I can. This staff works our tails off. We have to be more consistent. When you're not winning games, you're going to take heat in the position I'm in."
For the Jets, the antidote that cures their offensive ills and an inability to get back on track could be coming to town Monday night in the form of the winless Dolphins, who have plenty of issues of their own. If the Jets somehow flounder at home and hand the Dolphins their first win, look out. Because then, Schottenheimer and the Jets will really feel the heat.
