Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall knows that his team had a shitty season. Literally.
Struggling through a 5-11 season in which Marshall’s numbers were some of the worst of his career was not a pleasant experience for him.
In fact, the description he gave for the season while appearing on Inside The NFL on Monday shows just how unpleasant it was…
“The best way I can describe it is, having a diaper on and never changing it. And just sitting in that diaper the whole year. That’s how our year was.”
After going 10-6 under new coach Todd Bowles in 2015 the Jets were expecting to be in contention for the playoffs in 2016.
Unfortunately, they started out 1-5 and when Ryan Fitzpatrick threw six picks in week three against the Chiefs, Marshall says he had “a feeling of shock.”
“We understood the challenges that we were going to face with the tough schedule, the toughest schedule in all of football, probably. We thought that we would have a top-five defense. We thought that our offense will be better because it was our second year around. We had amazing chemistry the year before, broke a lot of records and did some amazing things. So, I felt like that was the game we were like, ‘Wow. Maybe we aren’t as good as we thought we were.'”
Turns out he was right.
