Through the first four weeks of the season, the Jets offense has ultimately looked like most of us expected it to look — useless. Like in past seasons when New York made it to the AFC Championship game, it seems obvious that the team will go as far as its defense will take it this year. That is typically pretty far with Rex Ryan’s defenses, but Niners cornerback Carlos Rogers accused the unit of quitting on Sunday.


“It kinda seemed like, after a while they just, I know, looking at their defense, they didn’t want to be out there,” Rogers said on SiriusXM NFL Radio Tuesday according to the NY Post. “And after that it’s like, man, these guys don’t really want to play the game. You know, it’s pretty much over.


“It kinda shocked me just because, you know, a lot of guys were saying on the sideline, ‘Oh, they don’t want to tackle, they don’t want to do this, they don’t want to do that.’ That’s a Rex Ryan defense. That’s a Rex Ryan team. His defense, you know, plays throughout. And that was the shocking point about it.”


San Francisco’s offense isn’t exactly the most explosive in the NFL, so Rogers’ theory is not hard to believe when you look at the box score. He then went on to talk about how the Niners never gave up when they lost to Minnesota in Week 3 and said they were never ready to “go get in the showers” like the Jets were on Sunday.


Every defense has some off games, but the Jets can afford very few from theirs with a quarterback controversy brewing, Santonio Holmes and Darrelle Revis out for the season and the offense looking worse than ever. The last thing Rex needs is guys not giving it their all.
