Clock Ticking on Zach Wilson After Another Hideous Jets Loss
If the clock wasn’t already ticking it is now for Jets quarterback Zach Wilson. And that might also be the case for Head Coach Robert Saleh and GM Joe Douglas. The Jets were totally out-classed, out-played, out-smarted in a lopsided 32-6 loss to the Buffalo Bills late Sunday afternoon.
Zach Wilson was again at the center of the Jets storm, completing only seven passes in 15 attempts for 81 yards. The fact he threw a touchdown pass on a dump-off screen to Breece Hall with the Jets already down 16-0 was little consolation.
The facts are Wilson struggled to move the football for the fourth straight week, as the Jets offense remains anemic. As head coach Robert Saleh pointed out, it wasn’t all on Wilson. There were dropped passes; Wilson failed ton connect with a regular wide receiver all night long. The offensive line was terrible and it didn’t help that Mekhi Becton left with an ankle injury.
But, come the fourth quarter with Gang Green down 29-6, Saleh finally benched Wilson for Tim Boyle. Not that Boyle wasn’t any better, but in the eyes of Jets fans everywhere, it was long overdue.
How Much Longer?
The question will be how much longer will the Jets stick with Wilson. They are already pondering a quarterback change, a move many felt should have been done weeks ago. The Jets play against Miami on Friday afternoon for the first ever Black Friday game.
There was also a report Sunday that Aaron Rodgers hopes to return to practice in two weeks, with an eye on a Week 16 return. That’s sounds great, but if the Jets keep floundering what’s the point? It will make little sense to trout Rodgers out there with a still raw Achilles tendon to play behind a patch-work offensive line in games that mean nothing.
