In his first public comments Wednesday, Jets acting owner Christopher Johnson offered a firm and direct response to the idea that the organization is tanking in 2017. "It couldn't be further from the truth," he said. "I want to win every game. Every player in that locker room wants to win. What you're seeing, I think, are growing pains. These are young guys. There are some older guys on the team. Some of them, they're doing an extraordinary job. But I think you're going to see this team get better and better and better. That's what I'm looking for. And we are definitely not tanking." The Jets tore down their roster this offseason, as they attempt to rebuild through the draft, with younger players. They are 0-2 this season, coming off a 45-20 loss at the Raiders. It appears the Jets will struggle all year and have a high draft pick in 2018.
