The New York Jets have fired defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, league sources said Monday.

The decision came on the morning after Williams called an ill-fated, all-out blitz that resulted in a 31-28 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.

With 13 seconds left, Williams took an unnecessary gamble, leaving rookie cornerback Lamar Jackson in man-to-man coverage against the speedy Henry Ruggs III, who burned him for a 46-yard touchdown.

The playcall was unprecedented in recent NFL history. According to research by ESPN Stats & Information, out of the 252 pass plays attempted under similar circumstances in the past 15 seasons, the Jets were the only defense to send more than six rushers.

The Jets are 0-12, and the defense is ranked 29th in the NFL.

I'd rather 10 Vance Josephs than 1 Greg Williams. That's how bad he is.

Dude left Ruggs 1 on 1 with a rookie CB on the game winning play. He's an A-Hole and he's trash.

If we are replacing Vance then Vic Fangio is the only way to go if the rumors are true he's getting fired from Denver.

There are people suggesting they did it on purpose because they are tanking for Trevor and with Jax only having 1 win they were afraid they were going to blow the pick. The Jets are of course denying it but many think that's why Williams got fired the Jets had to be REALLY aggressive in countering the claim they lost on purpose because in theory the NFL could fine them and take away the draft pick if that were true.

Greenie on ESPN said for people suggesting that was on purpose it's because you don't see them every week. Yes they ARE that bad, yes they ARE that incompetent that doing something like that is entirely possible without it being tanking

Dude was ordered to leave Ruggs 1 on 1 with a rookie CB on the game winning play. He's an A-Hole and he's trash.

Fangio is maybe the best defensive mind in the NFL. If Denver fires him, I’d hire him as DC in a heartbeat. But, don’t be surprised if he ends up being the HC of the Bears. He’s a god in Chicago.

Only coordinator of TWO winless teams in league history. (0-16 Browns & 0-12, likely to be 0-16 Jets)

And a true POS.

NO THANKS!
