Boomer Esiason believes Jets safety Bradley McDougald intentionally blew tackle attempt in Colts loss

Jets safety Bradley McDougald recently made some comments about the team’s effort, but a former NFL player believes he may have been guilty of that same offense in Sunday’s embarrassing 36-7 blowout loss to the Colts.

It’s become quite clear that the Jets are the worst team in the NFL, and a big part of that is how little talent is on their roster. And, not only that, the team lacks any stars, having traded away Jamal Adams in July.

Coincidentally, McDougald was acquired in that trade, and he hasn’t appeared to be thrilled about going from a contender to a cellar-dweller. Those feelings may have manifested themselves in Sunday’s loss, as WFAN’s Boomer Esiason believes he intentionally missed a goal-line tackle on a Jonathan Taylor touchdown run during the game.

Esiason stated that, in is eyes, McDougald actually dived away from contact, rather than embracing it, and he does raise a solid point.

The Jets are a dumpster fire, and it’s clear that Adam Gase has lost the locker room, so his players are quitting on him. It’s time for CEO Christopher Johnson to pull the trigger and relieve Gase of his head coaching duties, which we could see in the next week or two.
