Jets tackle: “We’re in the world of suck right now”

For generations, football coaches have conditioned players to speak in meaningless cliches, to offer little in the way of insight, and less in the way of art.

Kelvin Beachum has resisted that urge. Despite spending eight years in a league that hates clarity and beauty of language, the Jets offensive tackle is nothing less than a poet.

“It’s frustrating, but this is the NFL,” Beachum said after last night’s loss to the Browns, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “We’re in the world of suck right now.”

The Jets have been sailing toward that mythical land for years, like Odysseus on a long quest for home.

Last night’s loss, without their starting quarterback because of mononucleosis and his backup getting injured early, leaving them in the hands of someone named Luke Falk, might have gotten them closer to the shore than they’ve been in some time.

And we should all be grateful we have a wordsmith like Beachum to document the journey for us all.

this article had truth to it. It has even affected Jetsnation in that the fans are so frustrated with losing that they are getting almost EDGY with each other. Everybody needs to step back and realize it's never as bad as it may seem. Wait until the stinging of this loss dies off then come back to the table much more level headed. This is the same time we say about a certain political party. They always want to make policy decisions fresh off a tragedy occurring. That's not wise. Step back and reflect on what happened. Take time to calm yourself down and then come back. That's when good choices are made.
