Lost in the Sauce (Gardner) of a fantastic 5-3 start to the New York Jets season has been the ineptitude of their Year 2 frontman, Zach Wilson. Head coach Robert Saleh warned that he was keeping receipts off all who mocked Gang Green and you can add this next statement to your list, Bob. Zach Wilson stinks.
While I can't speak to what his mom's friends see in him, I can say his stats this year have shown a quarterback who is getting worse, not better, at adapting to the NFL game.
Wilson is tied for the worst completion percentage in football, has a QB rating slightly better than that of Kenny Pickett and at this current passing touchdown pace would need until Thanksgiving to catch the gaudy numbers that Joe Flacco set in just three starts with this same Jets team. Gross.
This week, he faces the division-leading Bills and has a defense that can potentially slow down Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs, but unless Wilson can suddenly become a passable NFL quarterback, New York will be owned by upstate table breakers.
Bills lead the NFL in passing yards per game (307.7)
Jets defense has allowed over 222 yards passing just once all season
Both the Bills and Jets are averaging over 1.5 giveaways per game, ranking top-10 among NFL defenses
