Robert Saleh knows how important his third year with New York Jets is as head coach. It is a make-it-or-break-it season for him. The Jets will have high expectations this season because of having quarterback Aaron Rodgers as the starter and all of the hoopla in the New York media.
Robert Saleh Calls Out Jets Offensive Line On Hard Knocks
In the latest episode of Hard Knocks that was aired on Tuesday night on HBO, Robert Saleh called out his offensive line and acknowledged they will need to be better before the season begins.
He said this during the Hard Knocks episode.
“Offense, it was our first f* opportunity to change the stink that’s been in this organization for a very long time on the offensive side of the ball. You can have a Hall of Fame quarterback. You can have two $10 million plus receivers. You can have a reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year. You can have all kinds of skill in the running back room. None of it f* matters until the big boys up front change who the f* we are.”
Well, Robert Saleh is not wrong that the game of football is won and lost at the line of scrimmage. One of the biggest question marks heading into this season is the New York Jets offensive line.
On the depth chart, Billy Turner is the starting left tackle over Mehki Becton. Laken Tomlinson is the starting left guard, Connor McGovern is the starting center, Alijah Vera-Tucker is the starting right guard, and Max Mitchell is the starting right guard.
Robert Saleh Under Pressure This Season
Robert Saleh needs everyone to be on the same page in his third season as head coach. The New York Jets will have a tough schedule to start the season. They will be at home in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills and on the road in Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys.
Both of those football teams have solid defensive lines and can easily disrupt the New York Jets’ offensive game upfront. If the offensive line is a problem this season for the Jets, then Robert Saleh will continue to be unpleased with this unit.
