Garrett Wilson talks about the differences between Joe Flacco and Zach Wilson: in NY Jets Forum Posted August 16 7 hours ago, Bronx said: I respect your opinion. However, for Garrett to come out publicly with this statement says a lot. I mean, it's not a great statement for Wilson - I agree. But it is an effort to compliment his current QB, who has over a decade more experience. 7 hours ago, JoeNamathsFurCoat said: He throws dumpoffs and passes to the flat like he’s trying to throw a fastball In some cases, just unnecessarily putting it right on top of guys before they can get their hands up This is basic stuff like if you watch ground passes in soccer, the pros only put as much pace / mustard on a ball as necessary The goal is to make it as easy as possible to not only handle / receive the pass but for the receiver to make his 1st touch / move into positive space Wilson is horrendous at present. I've never really stated otherwise. But, he sort of cleaned that up in the back half of the year last year. What he's doing in TC, I have no idea. I've only seen him throw 5 passes this year, and two of them were astonishingly bad. I do understand the mechanisms of throwing a good pass, however. My take has been that Zach's ball placement is terrible, but his touch certainly improved. 7 hours ago, Spoot-Face said: Really, I see this more as trying to compliment Flacco, rather than throwing shade on Zach. I thought the comments were more about experience than talent. Of course a 37 year old QB is going to have more experience than a 2nd year guy. There's a way of reading it that way, for sure. But, hard not to come away with a disappointing take re: Zach, despite the intent. 6 hours ago, More Cowbell said: Last season before he was injured it was an issue, after he came back it looked like he worked on his touch a bit. Haven't seen enough this season of course to know if he corrected it but Wilson pointing it out is an indication he hasn't worked that out yet. I agree. 4 hours ago, Supersonic said: Really? Didn't a WR just tell you that he is? Your expert opinion is suspect at best Well, not exactly. No, he didn't say that. He did, however, say Flacco was better.
