From the fans to the head coach, it’s just making it hard. That’s what it’s doing.” 

The 4X SB champion didn’t shy away from reeking into the impact of A-Rod’s injury within the Jets’ camp. Moreover, the player’s views showed that he too was concerned about the QB’s injury and highlighted how it was hampering the team’s performance. He brought to light the Jets’ issues that have cropped up since the injury. “The defense is making it harder than the team and I gotta go with how the players are feeling. You know how the defense is feeling…..At the moment it’s the players who are on the field playing the game and if they’re disgruntled. They’re not going to perform to the highest they can perform.”  For A-Rod, there’s positive news for his fans.
