“I kind of live by a saying: ‘If you ain’t got no haters, you ain’t popping.’ So hate away,” Saleh claimed.“Obviously, we’re doing something right if you’ve gotta talk about us when we don’t play you until week 4 and I’m good with it. The guys in the locker room, they’ve earned everything that’s coming to them and really excited about what’s going on.”
The Jets are set up to play the Broncos in Denver in week 5.
Saleh was additionally free of the task Hackett has actually been performing with the Jets until now, calling him “phenomenal.”
“We are focused on us. I get it, there’s a lot of external noise, there’s a lot of people who are hating on us. There are a lot of people looking at us to fail,” Saleh proceeded.“There’s a lot of crows pecking at our neck but all you could do is spread your wings and keep flying high until those crows fall off and suffocate from the inability to breathe.”
Payton has actually had a lot of success in the NFL, mentoring the New Orleans Saints for 15 years. He led the franchise business to the playoffs 9 times and also won the Super Dish in 2010.
