Reason No. 3: The New York Jets in general
Now, San Francisco has to be glad it gets a matchup against the Jets following a tough loss.
New York isn’t exactly a team putting a lot of fear into other teams across the league. There was enough offseason controversy, highlighted by All-Pro safety Jamal Adams wanting out and eventually influencing a trade to the SF 49ers’ division rivals, the Seattle Seahawks.
And on top of that, the head coach of the Jets, Adam Gase, is not exactly safe from the hot seat after a year-plus of sub-par efforts in New York.
Gase and the Jets’ efforts in a Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills already prompted ideas New York should move on from its head coach right away.
San Francisco, while is banged up, is still a far superior team to the Jets in nearly every element and will match up well against a banged-up Jets team.
Speaking of injuries…
