It’s not going to snowball. Dallas played a really freaking good game, and that’s a good football team, too. They played They played, I feel, about as good as you could. So hats off to them, but like I said, when you can’t get off the field on third down, you’re adding plays to your legs, and eventually you’re going to run out of gas. And I felt like that’s what kind of happened to us, especially on defense.”

Saleh understands that the loss against the Cowboys is a slight hiccup. He looked disappointed with the chances missed, he pointed out the inability of his offenses to convert on third down.

Robert Saleh isn’t giving up anytime soon. He still reckons the side has the talent and ability to win out the games and make it to playoffs. Saleh seemed irked with the pressers calling the Jets out of the NFL contention with just two games. The HC said “I don’t know why people are trying to put an obituary onto our team’s name. Aaron is an unbelievable piece to this whole thing and we love him, but I think there are 52 other guys in the locker room plus the 16 practice squad guys who believe that we can do a hell of a lot of good things here.”
