Even with Zach Wilson completing a pass, he still gets roasted for it.
This week, the New York Jets release of a 12-second highlight from practice elicited a surprising reaction on social media.
The clip shows quarterback Zach Wilson taking a shotgun snap during a red-zone drill and firing a pass to wide receiver Garrett Wilson. The WR made a diving finger-tip highlight catch, but he never should’ve had to do that because the pass was atrocious.
Fans used this good highlight from Garrett to pounce on the QB and his bad throw.
Wilson is getting more reps in OTAS after Aaron Rodgers hurt his calf last week. That means the former No. 2 overall pick has been getting reps as QB1 with all of the other starters on offense.
Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic described Wilson’s performance as “bumpier” while noting Wilson’s accuracy “was a bit off” and that has been a problem for the young passer throughout his first two years in the NFL.
In two seasons in the NFL, Wilson has only completed 55.2 percent of his passes.
Wilson has been through a tumultuous two seasons with New York, compiling an 8-14 record as a starter. He has passed for 4,022 yards with 15 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. In 2022, Wilson had a 54.5 percent completion rate for 1,688 yards with six touchdowns and seven picks.
