New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy hopped on WFAN recently and did not rule out the possibility of New York Jets fans attending games.

On Wednesday, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy hopped on WFAN’s “Moose and Maggie” to discuss the status of sports in his state as it looks to reopen.

Naturally, the New York Jets and Giants were the main topic of discussion, considering both teams’ home is stationed in the great Garden State. And thankfully (for the entirety of Jets fandom), Murphy did not rule out the possibility of packed MetLife Stadium houses this coming season.

“I think it’s too early to tell,” Murphy said. “I think it’s a great aspiration. And outdoors is better than indoors with this virus. There’s no question about that. A ball game outside? Potentially.”

Any other piece of news would have been too depressing for so many fans. Considering it’s still May, nearly an entire summer needs to unfold prior to the home opener in September against the San Francisco 49ers.

Uncertainty has ruled the country over the last few months. What’s worse is the uncertainty mixed with fierce proclamations (from every angle) that has allowed information to become so spotty.

Truth be told, nobody knows what the right situation was and/or still is as the world deals with COVID-19. If you’re one who believes you have the answer, you may be contributing to the problem.

At least for now, New Jersey’s governor is saying the right things as his NFL teams get ready to officially reopen.
