It’s “collective” fault that the Jets are sticking with quarterback Zach Wilson.

Though coach Robert Saleh said Tuesday that “it’s lazy to simply put everything on” Wilson, he didn’t really back him up. It wasn’t very strong, different from what he had said regarding Wilson on September 12.

When an MRI showed that Aaron Rodgers had torn his Achilles tendon that day, Saleh said, “I want to make this very clear: Zach’s our quarterback.”

The Jets’ attack has been bad since then; in their last seven games, they’ve only scored seven touchdowns.

In Monday night’s 27–6 loss against the Los Angeles Chargers, they gave up more sacks (eight) than points. Wilson dropped two fumbles during the game.

“No, because there would be one thing when it was just him, right?” he stated. The easy thing to do is switch leaders.

He and a playcaller are the most noticeable, so it’s simple to point the finger at them when things go wrong, right? People who are easy to see on camera are the ones to blame.

“Yes, [Wilson] has plenty of things he needs to improve on, but I know he understands that,” Saleh said. “But simultaneously, this is collective.”

The Jets (4-4) are in a tough spot going into their game against the Raiders on Sunday night.

They’re still in the running for the playoffs thanks to one for the best defenses, which makes any QB choice more important.

Saleh can choose between veteran backup quarterback Tim Boyle and practice squad quarterback Trevor Siemian. Siemian has made 30 career starters but hasn’t won a game since 2017.

By far, the Jets’ attack is the worst in the NFL. In every major data area, Zach Wilson is close to the bottom of the list of NFL starting quarterbacks.

The Jets’ loss against the Chargers on Monday was proof. Star quarterback Justin Herbert played one of his worst games for his career, and the offense couldn’t score a touchdown, so the Jets lost badly.

For many Jet fans, the answer is easy. Because they have to watch the Jets’ offense waste the good work done by their defense over a second straight year, they should put Zach Wilson on the bench and go with the next best player.

Even though it was less than 24 hours since the Jets’ last offensive disaster, Saleh made clear on Tuesday that he has no plans to switch quarterbacks. Wilson “could do a lot better, yet it’s too easy to blame him for everything.”

Saleh told media on a video call, “It would be one thing when it was just him.” “It’s very simple to do.” It’s easy to blame him and the play-caller when things go wrong because they are the most obvious parts of the offense.

In a statement made Monday night, Saleh said he had no plans to give the offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett the job of calling plays. He tried to explain on Tuesday why their offensive problems aren’t just with Hackett and Wilson.

The talented defense for Gang Green has been doing a great job all season, but the offense hasn’t been able to capitalize on their chances. On Monday Night Football, they lost badly to the Chargers 27–6.

It was one of the worst defenses in football going into the game, but the Chargers forced four fumbles and recovered three of them.

They also limited the Jets to just two field goals by Greg Zuerlein and no trips into the red zone.

New York also dropped some important balls and got called for eight penalties that night, which put them behind the sticks too often.

Behind a shaky offensive line, quarterback Zach Wilson had another bad game. He completed only 33 of 49 throws for 263 yards (5.4 yards per attempt) and was sacked eight times. His QBR was a terrible 17.9, and it was the fourth occasion in five weeks that he failed to throw a score.

Because Wilson’s offense works so well, many fans and the media are asking for a new quarterback going forward. But coach Robert Saleh calls that a “lazy” story.

He told the press on Tuesday, “It’s lazy to simply slap it all on him.” “He and the play-caller have the two most well-known people, so it’s simple to fault them when things go wrong.” Of course, he knows he needs to work on a lot of different things in order to get better.

What if it were just him? That would give us something to talk about. But this is a problem that affects everyone, and we all need to agree on it.”
