Zach Wilson was benched again and he is starting to look like a bonafide bust. Jets head coach Robert Saleh says he isn’t giving up on Zach Wilson and provides no update on who will be the starting QB next week, but he is not looking good out there on the field.
On Thursday, Wilson endured a torrid night before eventually being benched as the New York Jets were beaten 19-3 by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The No. 2 overall draft pick in 2021, Wilson has struggled for form during his two seasons with the Jets.
For his mother, Lisa, she is taking crap from fans each and every time he does badly out there on the field. Such was the case when a fan messaged her and said something disgusting about the Jets QB.
Lisa Wilson decided to expose him.
“I hope your sons leg snaps in half and never plays a snap of NFL football again.”
Wilson finished with a 5.2 QBR. It was the Jets’ fourth straight loss, all but killing their playoff chances.
Wilson was benched five weeks ago in favor of Mike White who sparked the offense. Thursday night, he was replaced by a journeyman QB. The Jets showed signs of life with Streveler, who rushed for 54 yards and completed 10 of 15 passes for 90 yards in his season debut.
Wilson remained on the sideline for the remainder of the contest. It was the first time that Wilson was replaced in-game in a non-injury situation.
“I’ve got to look myself in the mirror, I’ve got to go back and watch this tape, and you’ve got to be hard on yourself and just say, ‘Why are we not moving the ball?’ It starts with me,” Wilson said. “I didn’t put my team in the best position there and we didn’t do anything on offense.”
The Jets and the fans are frustrated that the second overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft looks like a major bust.
