Jets’ secondary was destined from the beginning

So what did you expect?

Jets, who doesn’t like a perfectly healthy roster, has five cornerbacks on his active roster and three are rookies on Sunday against the Chargers in Los Angeles.

A total of 11 NFLs will begin, including their five corners.

The results were fairly predictable with a 34-28 loss to the Chargers. Their secondary was toyed throughout the afternoon by rookie quarterback Justin Herbert.

Herbert, who completed 37 out of 49 in 366 yards and three touchdowns, looked so comfortable in his pocket that he mercilessly torched Jet’s defensive back, so watch this game from home. I might have been sitting on the sofa.

His pass catchers (receivers Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Tyrone Johnson, tight end hunter Henry) gave way to Jets’ secondary, who was defeated injured.

Veteran starter Brian Poole was already in the season with a shoulder injury.

Pierre Desia, which is said to have been signed by general manager Joe Douglas in the off-season, was released last week.

And on Saturday, another starter, Breath Austin, was put on the injured list for a neck injury. Austin, who played in eight of Jets’ nine games this season and had 43 tackles, three-pass defense, and forced fumble, missed practice last week due to neck discomfort and traveled to LA. There wasn’t.

As a result, Jets became tremendously thin in the cornerback, and only rookie Bryce Hall, Lamar Jackson, Jablingidry, Arthur Moret, and Corey Ballentine were exempted a week ago. The safety rookie Ashtin Davis was also used for the interview.

Jets coach Adam Gace said this week with a tense smile, “everyone is standing on the deck.”

If Morrett, who has seven career starts, is the most experienced cornerback, this is not the secret to defensive success. Jets started three newcomers on the second Sunday of the four.

As expected, it did what you expected. Herbert was 23-of-31 in the first half with 277 yards and two touchdowns. Allen 10 catches at 108 yards — first half. Williams had two catches and a touchdown at 52 yards, and Johnson had one catch at 54 yards.

With Williams’ touchdown, he was covered in Morlett who collided with safe Marcus May and was able to jog into the pristine end zone for the 14-6 Chargers lead.

Herbert’s third touchdown pass goes to Allen with a third goal from the 8-yard line where the Jets rookie corner Jackson returns to play and sees the ball until Herbert’s pass lands between 1 and 3. There wasn’t of Allen’s jersey for the 31-13 Chargers third quarter lead at the time.

“They have some great playmakers for Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Hunter Henry’s receivers,” said Henry Anderson, Jets’ defensive end.

“They played as tightly as possible, but with some penalties, [the Chargers] There are three people who are worried, “Gase said of the young corner. “And the ball came out soon. We tried to change things a bit …’
