Can Zach Wilson Lead The Jets To More Signature Victories?
It is hard to believe that the New York Jets are 5-2 heading into week eight of the NFL season. Defensively they are very solid led by DJ Reed, Sauce Gardner, and Quinnen Williams. Ever since head coach Robert Saleh made those comments about keeping receipts, his team has stepped up and are clearly behind their head coach. The loyal and dedicated Jets fans deserve a successful season and it appears they are trending in that direction. However, Zach Wilson remains a question mark for this team and two major injuries could impact the rest of the season too, as I mention in my quick take from The Times Union:
At some point New York Jets quarterback Zack Wilson will have to make a contribution, if the Jets are going to continue to win games. The Jets are winning games this season with their defense and running game, and losing Rookie RB Breece Hall to a torn ACL is a major blow. Wilson might have to complete a few more passes or even throw for a touchdown if the Jets are going to beat the New England Patriots this Sunday at MetLife Stadium. At some point the Jets need to take off the training wheels and let Wilson sink or swim. Wilson is no longer a rookie, but they still treat him like one.
MJ and I had our guy Freddie Coleman on with us earlier this morning as we do every Friday right here on Big Board Sports. We asked Freddie what he thinks of the Jets so far this season and if Zach Wilson will improve down the stretch here. Below is our conversation with him on this.
I hope the Jets continue to win and climb up the AFC East standings. We will see if Zach Wilson can step up and lead his team to some more signature victories.
