After the Week 1 win over the Bills, Zach Wilson was on shaky ground as the Jets starter. After a horrific outing in Dallas that ground may be evaporating.
Wilson completed just 12/27 for 170 yards 1 touchdown and 3 interceptions. It wasn’t even close to good enough from the Jets former number 2 overall pick. With a defence that has Super Bowl aspirations, the offence under Wilson is now just trying not to lay an egg each week.
THE JETS WILSON DILEMMA
The funny thing with Zach Wilson is that on his lone TD pass it was a great throw to Garrett Wilson. It was another flash of what the young slinger can do, but doesn’t do enough. After a terrible 49.6 grade from PFF in week 1, Wilson somehow managed to get worse in week 2, grading out at 45.3. Quarterbacks Coach Robert Calabrese has his work cut out to try and get Wilson up to a standard that gives the Jets a shot to make the playoffs.
For his part, Jets HC Robert Saleh isn’t ready to give up on the season just yet. “Just like last week wasn’t the Super Bowl, this week’s not the apocalypse, either,” Saleh said “I know it tends to feel that way, especially in this market. But it is what it is — we lost the game, it’s a hell of a football team. You’ve got to be able to face the music and try to figure out what went wrong and tell the truth about it.”
