Jets safety Jamal Adams said he was "pissed off" after New York lost 13-6 to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, its third straight loss after a 3-3 start.
"I don't know what else to say," Adams told reporters. "It's not Coach (Todd) Bowles's fault. I know he puts it on his back, it's not his fault. ... I'm sick of losing. Enough is enough, honestly. I'm fed up with losing."
The Jets defense held Miami without a touchdown and limited the Dolphins to 168 total yards on offense, however the Jets committed four turnovers -- all Sam Darnold interceptions -- and have been held to 16 points over their last two games.
Dating back to last season, Adams's rookie year, the Jets are 5-15 in their last 20 games. They have had two three-game losing streaks this season and lost six of seven games to end the 2017 season.
"It's the same, same, same stuff," Adams said. "It's frustrating. I'm not going to hold my tongue for anything anymore. I'm not a loser. I don't do this for fantasy points. I do this for the love of the game. I'm passionate about this team and I believe in this team."
Bowles, whom Adams defended after the game, was more diplomatic in his approach at what the team needs to do to snap its losing streak and win games.
"We have to execute better in a lot of situations," Bowles said. "We turned the ball over, lose the turnover battle 4-0. ... We get some yards and then we shoot ourselves in the foot."
Adams has lost more games through his first one and a half seasons with New York than he did his entire college career with LSU. As a freshman, the Tigers went 7-5, and they finished 9-3 and 8-4 in Adams's sophomore and junior year seasons.
"I'm sick of losing," Adams said. "It pisses me off every time. I'm not a loser. I want to get back on the winning track. We've lost three straight? Come on, man."
