Michael Meegan assesses Zach Wilson’s rookie performance and answers the question of where we go from here.
Zach Wilson’s rookie year is complete. He finished with 9 TDs, 11 INT’s, 55.9 completion percentage, and 2334 passing yards. He added 185 yards on the ground and 4 rushing TDs over his 13 starts.
How would I describe Zach Wilson’s rookie year? One word–bad. “Save Article, closes word press, shuts computer and goes to a dark room to weep about the scary thoughts that the Jets still do not have a franchise QB.” Now is that harsh on Zach after he got injured during this season? Yes, it is. However, Zach did have a lot of positive and negatives that need to be discussed in detail.
Stephen Russo offers his early offseason thoughts on the New York Jets
There is not much you can take away from the Jets season finale against the Bills. Sure, the offense set a franchise low for yards in a game with 53 – but having a subpar offensive output was expected with Zach Wilson having a JV squad to throw to (I’m being generous) and Jamison Crowder getting hurt in the first quarter. The Jets, by enlarge, were outmanned at every position on the field but managed to keep this a 13-10 game into the 4th quarter, on the road, in terrible conditions, against a very good team that was playing for the division title. If we’re going to take anything away from this game, it should be fight they showed in a meaningless game.
Will Parkinson on why this offseason is truly “make or break” for the Jets.
Many times in Jets history and specifically the past decade, fans and media members use the term “make or break” when it comes to the Jets and what many consider the Jets time to shine, free agency and the draft. Under Joe Douglas’s regime the Jets are 13-35 and 2-15 (Pending Sunday 2-16) in the AFC East and haven’t won an AFC East game since a meaningless week 17 victory over the Matt Barkley led Bills in the rain. To make the picture even bleaker the Jets haven’t been to the playoffs since 2010 and have had 1 winning season since 2010. Safe to say things have been truly pretty brutal for the Jets but 2021 offered up a chance for true change from top to bottom. In the past the Jets have gone with the quick fix method, the long rebuild method and neither of them have worked. Robert Saleh, Joe Douglas and Zach Wilson as a trio gave fans a reason to hope going into this season. While things haven’t gone fully according to plan things are finally ticking up for a franchise who has experienced almost solely negativity for a decade.

Stephen Russo reacts to the Jets’ loss to the Dolphins.
For some reason, this one hurts a little more. Objectively speaking, it’s not that bad. The Jets played a tough team, who came in winning 5 in a row, on the road, and played them close and kept the game within a score while they were without half their roster due to injury. The young quarterback played well, particularly in the first half, and they simply weren’t able to hang for the entire game.
