NY Jets Reap the Consequences of Sticking with QB Zach Wilson

Zach Wilson upsets Jets defense; QB decision still looms.

Following a 32-6 loss to the Buffalo Bills, the New York Jets are facing uncertainty at the quarterback position. Head coach Robert Saleh pulled starting quarterback Zach Wilson late in the third quarter for Tim Boyle, leaving the team with no clear solution at the position. Saleh refused to name a starter moving forward, but the options include Wilson, Boyle, and Trevor Siemian.

The quarterback problem for the Jets could have been avoided if the front office had acted earlier in the season to find a better option. Wilson’s struggles were evident last season when he was demoted to third-string quarterback due to attitude issues. After Aaron Rodgers went down with an injury, the Jets should have pursued other quarterbacks through trade. However, the team failed to make a move, leaving them in a difficult position with a struggling offense and a strong defense going to waste. Now, the Jets are faced with an uncertain quarterback situation with no easy solutions in sight.
