Jets offensive coordinator admits he gave up against Broncos defense

New, comments
NFL: New York Jets at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos last Sunday completely dominated and shutdown the New York Jets en route to a 23-0 shutout win at home. The Jets were so bad and the Broncos defense so good that Jets offensive coordiantor John Morton straight admitted he just gave up trying to get the offense going in Denver.

“Listen, the game was out of hand and I didn’t want to let some bad stuff happen,” Morton said. “At that time, I don’t like saying, ‘No mas,’ but, listen, it was time to get out of there. They kicked our butts, they kicked our butts. Sometimes that happens in the National Football League. I’m not going to sit there and have these guys run a bunch of routes and something bad happens, make bad decisions. I didn’t want that to happen. So I made the decision. I just wanted to run it and get out of there.”

To see that the Broncos defense was so suffocating that the other teams coaches had no answers and played to just get the game over with and the team on a flight the heck out of Denver brings joy to this fans heart.

With a franchise quarterback, this team is going to be dangerous. Now if they could just find that franchise quarterback...
