Inside the Mind of OC John Morton

Inside the Mind of OC John Morton”

"But the effort you see guys going for the ball, that's kind of saying that things we worked on in practice are showing up in games". The talked about the run and, while no promises were made, Morton made sure the Jets established the ground game.

"Listen, after the game, players are emotional, coaches are emotional and sometimes they say things maybe they shouldn't say", Morton said.

"Always", Morton said of his willingness to listen to players.

Morton said that he has no problem if players come to him with their suggestions to improve the offense. I listen to the quarterback, I listen to all the coaches, any players - especially players that have played in this league for a long time, I'm listening, and I have to do that. Forte, who underwent arthroscopic surgery on the same knee in January to fix a torn meniscus, sat out practice Thursday for the second straight day. "As long as it's good for the team, let's do it". We really wanted to get after it and I thought we did that as a whole team. "I think it's good when players speak up, and let's talk about it". So says the play caller.

Morton said Forte's comments didn't influence his play calling; obviously, players felt it did. Aside from Forte's comments, there was no reason for the Jets to suddenly commit to the run against Buffalo. However, numbers aren't the only qualifier to designing a game plan as the Green & White rushed for 194 yards against the Bills, who were the league's third best rush defense at the time.

The New York Jets will again be without one of the most dynamic offensive players on their roster. The Jets went three-and-out on that opening drive, but Morton called three straight runs. But Morton has shown he is open to constructive discussion while dismissing the second-guessing that comes with being an offensive coordinator.

"I'm going to do whatever is working and it was working", Morton said of the running attack last week. "I call the game as I see it, and I don't worry about that type of stuff".

Following a loss to the Falcons the previous week, Forte criticized the coaching staff for not running the ball enough.
