The New York Jets head coach was unexpectedly candid in his presser today
“All Gas, No Brake” and “Positive Vibes Only” are two of his mantras.
Now, though, the second-year head man has a different quote, one that’s directed at those mocking the Jets for their performance against the Ravens in a 24-9 loss yesterday.
“We’re all taking receipts on all the people who continually mock and say we aren’t going to do anything … and I’ll be more than happy to share them when it’s all said and done,” per Jets X-Factor’s Robby Sabo.
Robert Saleh says he's "taking receipts" of those who are all mocking the not believing in the New York #Jets, and he'll be glad to share those receipts once it's all said and done.

Those are bold words from a head coach who is 4-14 in his tenure and has yet to win a game in September.
However, the ever-positive Saleh found genuine pockets of growth to build on for next week.

Saleh quoted Tony Dungy, who said that 90% of games are lost, not won. He felt that the Jets really could have been explosive yesterday if not for the mistakes, pointing out that the defense did a great job except for two blown coverages that resulted in touchdowns.
Offensively, he said that the team had almost 180 yards in the first half and were moving the ball freely, but drops and fumbles killed drives.
Saleh’s comment about keeping receipts was in a response to a question about how a rebuild comes together, whether it happens slowly or suddenly clicks, specifically regarding mistakes.
He said that you see it on tape and on TV, as the team gets faster and flies all over the field, and he knows it’s going to happen.
The head coach’s confidence has been refreshing in injecting new life and strong team culture into East Rutherford. However, as long as the wins remain elusive, the mockers will not be silenced.
