Do we start rooting for the tank right off the bat in week 1? in NY Jets Forum Posted August 19, 2021 34 minutes ago, Irish Jet said: While this thread is nonsense I think people bringing up the sack total are also missing the point. Any further analysis of Lawson shows that he’s an outstanding pass rusher who’s steadily improved since entering the league. The camp reports seemed to indicate he could be about to take his game to another level and become that premiere pass rusher. Now we’ll never know. It’s not just that we lost him, it affects the whole line and front 7, which he was probably the most integral part of. The tanking talk is ridiculous but this really, really hurts the team. I dont think our schedule is that easy, I was thinking 9-8 would be our ceiling. Losing Lawson probably costs us 2-3 wins.
