    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    His two strengths are arm strength and mobility/elusiveness. 

    if he doesn’t improve his accuracy and decision making, he’ll be a bust. 

    This is why I've called him a "flag football QB."  The problem with Wilson is he is way behind on the things that make you an NFL QB.  Accuracy with the football, reading a defense, seeing the field, and making good decisions.

    Doing this stuff in real-time is the hard part.  That's why the Penningtons, the Fitzpatricks, the McCowns, etc stick around so long. They lack the physical talent to be elite, but have the mental game pretty well down pat.  Hell, it's what made/makes Brady great - pre-HGH, he was quite physically limited, but he just executed.

    We've gotta hope that Zach learns all this, but I have my doubts.

    Long story short, based on what I've seen, of course you take a Flacco type career.  Flacco isn't/wasn't ever a top 5, maybe even not top 10 QB, but in his prime he'd be what, the 2nd best QB in Jets history?

    We just upgraded two of the most important positions via injury, and the board is acting like the season is dead.

    I wanted Mekhi and Zach to succeed. Even though I didn’t agree with the Zach pick, I wanted him to prove me wrong and throw TDs in Jans and Febs for the next 10 years. Maybe he still will.

    What I do know though, is that as of right now, both of them were liabilities more than they were assets. IMO JD has done a very good job with most of the rest of the roster. We have a team that can compete, and frankly I felt that Mekhi and Zach might have been holding us back.

    We now have a pro-bowler to play alongside AVT to help the run game and stabilize pass pro over a guy who we consistently would have wondered about giving effort or getting hurt or just living up to his hype.

    At QB, to be clear, I don’t think Flacco is anything great. However, I do believe he’ll bring stability and experience which will really help the development of the rest of the guys on O, and I think he’ll make fewer mistakes which will help the D. The net will be an overall positive for the team. And the extended time off watching and learning from a SB MVP from the sidelines might be just what Zach needs in terms of development to take the next step.

    I think everyone needs to take a deep breath and let the season play out, and enjoy the ride. When was the last time we got to say that we have a legitimately talented roster with a probowl LT and a SB MVP QB? 

    The biggest travesty of last night is likely that we don’t get a definitive answer on Wilson this season.  For those of us who thought, “probably not,” it’s worst case scenario to go into year 3 not knowing what to do at QB.

    Ultimately, if he’s out most to all of this year, you have to hope for the Rivers/Brees situation.

    Exactly. The idea that Becton didn't have a good rookie year is revisionist history. He ended up being injury prone and there are legitimate questions over his commitment to the game. But the idea that he couldn't play when healthy is unfounded. 

    As you said though, it doesn't matter anymore. We're on to Duane Brown.  

    He had a good rookie year, but also a wildly overrated rookie year.  And, that in and of itself was fine.

    But, he had two pretty poor training camps in a row, so it's hard to say what you would have gotten from him if he was available.

    I don't think expectations should change at all based on losing a big ??? at right tackle.

    “Hey guys, Jets production crew here for the 1JD special going up on YouTube here.  What are the first 15 scripted plays for the Ravens defense, Week 1???  Users on JetNation.com want to know so they know Saleh is all about winning!”

    If only Saleh said "one week at a time" more.  That seems to work well for Belichick.

    Literally every single team meeting (even at the Senior bowl), Saleh says the exact same generic BS, almost like a WWE wrestler repeating the same dumb slogan over and over again and cupping his hand to his ear waiting for a: "No Brake!" response from the crowd.

    Is he more likable than Adam Gase?  Yeah.

    But this is a results business.  Don't be fooled by empty rhetoric.

    I'll believe his methods are some kind of genius when I see Wins on Sundays.

    It's perfectly fine not to be sold on Saleh prior to seeing him win.

    But that wasn't the point you made.  The point you made was that in the 30-minute Jets Season Ticket Commercial, you didn't get any in depth, real football insight from him.
