Today we have our weekly SB Nation Reacts poll results.
Last week we noted how 75% of Jets fans polled expressed confidence in the team prior to Week 1 of the season. After the Week 1 loss to Buffalo, the numbers dropped considerably.
The confidence rating fell all the way to 16% this week. Only Falcons and Texans fans felt less confident in the state of their team. Atlanta’s and Houston’s confidence ratings were a full percentage point lower at 15%.
The rating was at 11% at the end of the 2019 regular season. It rose to 78% after free agency, 89% after the Draft, and 75% before the start of the 2020 season. Somehow it took only one game for us to come full circle from low confidence to high confidence back to low confidence.
A win over the defending NFC Champion 49ers would likely raise confidence appreciably. A loss could leave us approaching zero.
