Jamal Adams and Le’Veon Bell didn’t have great weekends with new teams

Former New York Jets players Jamal Adams and Le’Veon Bell didn’t exactly have great weekends with their new teams.

The Sunday New York Jets fan rite of passage is quick to spot. Watch your beloved Jets lose another game while keeping an eye on former Jets around the league. Watch them flourish, then point the finger at Adam Gase and the Jets for not properly utilizing each individual.

Not that Gase has been the football coaching messiah over the last couple of years, but it’s starting to become clear that at least one of his former pieces had already hit a point of no return.

Take Le’Veon Bell for example. The entirety of Jets fandom thought he’d explode in Kansas City with Andy Reid. Instead, through three games, the man has tallied just 54 yards on 16 carries for a terrible 3.4 yards per carry over three games in Kansas City.

After going for just seven yards and six attempts against the Jets last week, Bell followed it up with eight yards on four carries against the Carolina Panthers this past Sunday.

In addition, another former Jet, Jamal Adams, had a rough one.

Adams played well defensively. He finished his team’s loss to the Buffalo Bills with 1.5 sacks, three quarterback hits, a tackle for loss and five total tackles, but his team took a major hit.

Buffalo scored 44 points on Seattle’s defense and Adams found himself in a mini-spat with head coach Pete Carroll on the sideline at one point.


There have been many more weeks this year that have showcased former Jets getting the better of their former team when judging from afar (i.e. Robby Anderson). Week 9, however, has already featured two former Jets having miserable times.

Then again, the Jets haven’t yet played—which could drastically change everything.

Great shout out to Sabo being one of the only people in Jets Youtube World to call out Jamal Adams and why im home here on X Jets Factor. I called out Jamal Adams last year and a half and i got bashed by Jet fans and Seahawks fans because i told them about Jamal’s lack of coverage skills *end up being right* if you watch Film you’ll see how poorly Jamal played last year he was never the solution the Jets drafted him to be he had 1 good year out of 3 as far as i saw on film if he was drafted to play LB but he was not drafted to play LB he was drafted to play SS
