    It didn't move the needle for a franchise that desperately seems to want to honor a sunken cost.  That's bad news in my book.

    We're right back where we started:  Ball out against Jacksonville or fall flat on his face:  Anything in the middle and we're that much closer to being stuck in no-man's land in 2023.

    I completely agree with the fact that purgatory is the worst spot to be in.

    QB purgatory is more lethal than if your guy is just flat out terrible.

    Just f**king great and exactly what I predicted:  Zach plays a "meh"-ish game against a trash D in a loss.  The worst-case scenario.

    He did just enough to give this stupid franchise enough juice to make him the unquestioned QB1 next year.

    Threads like these are f**king infuriating.  When can we have a QB where the best you can say in a given week isn't "he wasn't the problem"?  How about a QB who can be, ya know, a solution?

    I do not think this happened. Too much slop for this to be the case. If you erase the pick, maybe. However this didn't move the needle at all.

    Maybe we should have a conversation with the offensive coordinator about this thing called the run game that he has seemingly forgotten. Maybe we can ask him why he’s constantly putting our second year quarterback in 3rd and long situations with his in ability to call good place on first and second down? I’d love to know how Braxton keeps getting reps and would love to find out why he’s playing out wide. 

     

    You see, we faced a lot of 3rd and longs this game because the run simply wasn't working. It wasn't forgotten, it was shelved because it sucked.

    Low key, we’re seeing Saleh get exposed down the stretch. I know we don’t want to talk about it, but there are a lot of coaching issues popping up that are choking the team out. 

    I think some of these issues aren't on Saleh, but the clock management at the end of the game was really bad.

  5. I do think we have to change our scheme if White is out though. We consistently found success on rollouts. Do those. 

    Wilson did good when just chucking it, but bad intermediate. Do more chucking.

    It's clear Wilson does not fit this scheme like White, and although that's probably his issue we just have to adapt to his strengths if he's gonna play. Also if he makes a mistake stop hiding him because that might be a reason behind why he shells up when he makes a mistake.

  6. I think it was an overall mediocre game from him. Some wow, mostly bad. It's clear that he has talent, but at no points has he shown to the ability to actually utilize it consistently. He has never put together 4 quarters. He gets too rattled by mistakes. 

    Might find success if he goes the Geno route, but at this point I don't see how Wilson miraculously becomes a competent NFL QB.

    Joe Douglas is sitting here with the likely DROY and OROY in his team. I honestly haven’t heard a peep from any corner of the NFL media universe criticizing Douglas for the Zach pick. The only “lolJets” stuff I’ve heard was in reference to continuing to play Zach Wilson every week. 

    Even though it conflicted with the beliefs of many on this board (myself included), Wilson was the consensus pick in NFL circles. If Douglas didn't make that pick, Lynch and Shanny would've etc. That's just how it was. Douglas didn't make some bold and crazy pick that blew up. It was a mistake, but even if you put another team and GM in that slot the same pick likely would've been made. 

    It's like the Darnold thing. There's a lot of criticism directed towards how we handled him, but I don't hear a ton about the pick being bad itself and that we should've taken someone else because of the situation and him being consensus. That's even with having 2 super QB's in that class. In fact I feel like I hear more grievances from this fan base with regards to O'Brien over Marino because even though O'Brien was a quality QB, Marino was the easy pick that was messed up. 

    Basically, you tend get a lot more scrutiny if your bold pick fails as opposed to the one everyone else would make too. So Douglas making otherwise good picks saves him from a lot of criticism even though it feels like everyone should be pointing and laughing about the Wilson pick.

  8. I think he has, but a part of me is skeptical about what the team will do. Zach doing well against the Bills and winning can now be compared to White losing and getting beat up against them. White has also lost twice in a row with not great play. Someone may also say that Wilson was 5-2, and White is 1-2 so Wilson's skillset was able to keep defenses honest. I personally think it's silly to think that way, but I wouldn't put it past them. They've been quite unpredictable. 

    Now would be the time to put Wilson back in if they really want to. Unless he's really hurt, I think we've seen the worst football from White this year already. Our end of year defensive slate should let White put up some big performances if he's allowed to play which would effectively shut down Wilson talk. 

    Tricky times are ahead. Hope we do the right thing and stick with the best QB.
