NFL Insider Unveils Shocking Report On Jets’ Robert Saleh

The 2023 NFL season was one of disappointment for the New York Jets, concluding with a modest 7-10 record and an array of uncertainties as they approached the offseason. Chief among these uncertainties was the fate of their head coach, Robert Saleh.

Recent revelations shed light on Saleh’s concerns and perceptions.

In a report from The Athletic, it was disclosed that Robert Saleh harbored significant job insecurity heading into 2024. His anxiety intensified, particularly after their starting quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, suffered a season-ending Achilles injury. This unfortunate setback forced the Jets into a quarterback shuffle for the remainder of the season, making it challenging to secure victories.

The report further indicated that Saleh saw himself as a parallel to defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. This connection stemmed from their shared struggles in stabilizing the quarterback position. Fangio, during his tenure with the Denver Broncos, grappled with the same issue and was ultimately relieved of his duties after just three seasons.

An incident earlier in the season added to Saleh’s concerns. When Zach Wilson was benched and the possibility arose of him returning as the starting quarterback, a leak revealed Wilson’s reluctance to reclaim the role.

Saleh, deeply disturbed by this revelation, embarked on a mission to uncover the source of the leaks. He confronted various members of the Jets’ coaching staff, even going so far as to consider confiscating their cell phones in a bid to identify the culprit. Saleh assured them that coming forward would result in no repercussions.

In the eyes of many Jets fans, the leak was attributed to backup quarterback Tim Boyle, primarily due to the timing of his release from the team shortly after the incident.

As the New York Jets gear up for the 2024 season, they plan to retain both Aaron Rodgers and Robert Saleh. Saleh’s coaching record since assuming the role in 2021 has been underwhelming, setting the stage for a challenging upcoming season.

Expectations are high, and the pressure on Robert Saleh will be intense, with fans eagerly seeking immediate positive results.
