1st & 10: Training Camp Thoughts

Stephen Russo kicks off his new column “1st and 10” with 10 observations/thoughts about Jets’ training camp so far.

1st…

Don’t panic. It’s August 9th. There has been a collective anxiety among Jets fans following the Green & White scrimmage on Saturday because Zach Wilson and the offense left much to be desired. It’s okay. We are less than 2 full weeks into training camp and Wilson is less than 2 full weeks into being an NFL Quarterback. Give it time, Jets fans. We’ll be alright.

Have the Jets finally found their QB of the Future?

Will Parkinson offers his thoughts on Zach Wilson.

It’s no secret that the Jets have been looking for their franchise Quarterback since Joe Namath moved on to the Rams in 1977. There have been flashes of hope–with Ken O’Brien, Boomer Eisasion, Vinny Testeverde, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Chad Pennington, Mark Sanchez, Geno Smith, Christian Hackenberg, and Sam Darnold–but Joe Douglas and Robert Saleh believe they finally have the guy to buck the trend and be the Jets’ franchise QB for years to come. When the Jets traded Sam Darnold to the Panthers back in April, it became abundantly clear that Zach Wilson would be the Jets’ pick at #2 overall. Wilson is an uber-talented player who could have gone #1 overall in a draft, if not for Trevor Lawrence. The Jets feel like they found their guy and are doing everything they can to make Wilson successful.

1 Year Later: Revisiting the Jamal Adams Trade

Stephen Zantz offers his thoughts on the Jamal Adams trade.

On July 25th, 2020, the Jets made a franchise changing trade of their best player, which expedited the rebuild process that GM Joe Douglas is in the process of. The Jets sent Jamal Adams and a 2022 4th round pick to Seattle in exchange for a 2021 1st Rounder, a 2022 1st rounder, a 2021 3rd rounder, and S Bradley McDougald. I decided to revisit this trade and how it has impacted the Jets then, now, and going forward.
