The Jets lost 29-22 to the Houston Texans on Saturday, but the loss has been taken by some as a symbolic victory for the team.

New York didn’t get blown out by one of the best teams in the AFC, and Sam Darnold put together some quality drives without two key offensive players in Isaiah Crowell and Quincy Enunwa. There were reasons to be encouraged by the game, but it was still a loss.

Jamal Adams joined "Carlin, Maggie & Bart" on Tuesday to talk about the Texans game and why he couldn’t consider it as anything other than a defeat.

“Yeah, that ain’t no win,” said Adams on WFAN. “I don’t know who said that. That’s not a winning mentality. That’s not something that I live by. That’s not something that everybody on the team should live by … that’s honestly like getting a trophy for a consolation prize, but you didn’t win. I don’t agree with that. At the end of the day we gotta create that winning culture and get some wins.”

The team has five wins on the season, but it’s true that their future looks bright. That winning culture Adams is talking about will take time, and it will also take management making the right decisions and additions.

Bart Scott asked Adams if the Jets were viewing their final games of the season as an advertisement to potential free agents who may want to think about joining the club.

“You hit it on the nose Bart,” said Adams. “How I always look at everything … every day is an interview. Everyday is really an interview for everybody in the building, period. No matter what the situation is, no matter what your record is … anytime we’re out there and we’re playing the game of football, the Jets are gonna come ready to play. We’re gonna fight.”
