Brady Quinn is no fan of the Zach Wilson hype train.
The “Two Pro’s and a Cup of Joe” co-host, Quinn, launched into a very interesting and honset critique of Jets quarterback Zach Wilson and the New York media apparent willingness to look the other way when it comes to the BYU product’s mediocre play at quarterback.
“Despite the injury, Zach Wilson looked awful in that preseason game. Can we just acknowledge the media continually to try to make Zach Wilson something? The media wants this to work out so badly, and it’s kind of tough to listen to, quite honestly. I’ve never seen a QB get so much love from the media for doing less, than Wilson in a long time. Once he got selected in the draft, I had my concerns: he’s smaller so he’s subject to injury, he didn’t play against elite schools in college, and he’s starring down targets. All of these things have played out. I hope he recovers from this, but I don’t get the media love. They’d be good with Jimmy Garoppolo at QB, but they won’t make that move because they’ve invested so much in Zach Wilson.”
Wilson was 3-for-5 with a interception before suffering a bone bruise and meniscus tear that will sideline him for 2-4 weeks.
According to reports, Wilson ‘s surgery went well without any complications. Joe Flacco is expected to be the Jets starting quarterback for the time being until Wilson is ready to return.
BREAKING: Zach Wilson's arthroscopic knee surgery was deemed a success, source tells ESPN. There were no surprises from the original diagnosis. They won't put him on the field until he's 100%, but good news for the Jets . #Jets— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) August 16, 2022
It’s been a wild summer for Wilson in many respects. Not only is he dealing with a second knee injury in ten months, and questions about his viability as a NFL starter, but before training camp he had to deal with rumors about a alleged relationship with one of his mother’s friends.
