"I really feel like this is a good football team," said Decker, who spoke following an event at Macy's in New York for Buffalo David Bitton, a clothing company for which he is the spokesperson. "We're just not there yet and we just need to get that momentum, have a snowball effect, win that one game, play better as a team and see what happens. But I really do feel like we're still in it."
"If we can string some games together," Decker added, "we know we have a chance."
The Jets' 1-6 start is their worst through seven games since 2007, when Gang Green wrapped up its season with a 4-12 mark. The hope is that recently acquired wideout Percy Harvin will spark an anemic Jets offense led by quarterback Geno Smith that currently averages 320.4 yards per game (26th in the NFL) and scores a meek 17.3 points per contest (28th). If Harvin doesn't, Decker's first season in the Big Apple will be one to forget.
