The Jets are discovering out shortly that each recreation isn’t going to be like Week 1, the place they had been gifted a win by Josh Allen, and the Buffalo Payments. Life with out Aaron Rodgers might be similar to it was earlier than he arrived. All this discuss rolling with Zach Wilson already seems like an enormous mistake. It’s simple to see that the Jets aren’t going to be pretty much as good as they hoped, minus A-Rod.
What Mike Greenberg suggests most likely must occur quickly. Since head coach Robert Saleh and the Jets apparently aren’t enthusiastic about any free-agent choices, possibly buying and selling for a quarterback is the reply. Though that’s how they acquired Rodgers, one thing should be finished in a rush. You may’t reside off protection alone within the NFL anymore. These days are gone in the case of contending.
At this price, the Jets might be out of the playoff race by November except they get a legit QB underneath heart. Rodgers talks about returning in a few months for the playoff push, but when they don’t get a legit substitute quickly, there gained’t be one. It most likely gained’t be Kirk Cousins, however there are a lot better choices than who they’ve determined to roll with in Rodgers’ absence.
You’d assume Saleh would need to go down with the best choice potential, and possibly he does. Maybe it’s the entrance workplace who desires to stay with Wilson for an additional 15 video games. They’re 1-1 in spite of everything. Their subsequent 4 video games are in opposition to New England, Kansas Metropolis, Denver, and Philly. Ought to the Jets lose to the Patriots subsequent week, it’s time to cancel Christmas. That goose is cooked; it’s throughout.
Even the winnable video games on the schedule grow to be huge query marks with Wilson taking snaps. With Wilson at QB, video games in opposition to the Pats, Texans, and Raiders grow to be questionable. You’d determine they may beat Houston no matter who’s dealing with the rock, however Wilson merely hasn’t proven a lot progress since coming into the league.
Simply when Jets followers thought it was secure to come back outdoors, this occurs. Oh boy, it’s going to be one other lengthy 12 months for Gang Inexperienced.
