    Wish life was that simple.  A little compassion would go a long way in life, if it is anxiety related.

    In retrospect, the Jets might have missed this risk in Zach’s personality assessment and beyond that in their assessment of what he needs.

    Again, if this is a crippling anxiety issue, continuing to play him was not the right strategy. That said, Zach likely hid this from the coaches.

    You seem to have some knowledge on ADHD. In your opinion - is medication needed?  Wonder if ZW is on any or if the NFL allows it?


    “By then, the Jets were comfortable with Wilson's intangibles. In five videoconference calls, one hour each, they showed video clips and grilled him on specific plays from his career. For each play, they wanted to know the call, the protection, his progression, the coverage and the audible (if there was one). He spit back each answer with the speed of a "Jeopardy!" champion.

    In an effort to stump him, they didn't show plays in sequential order. They bounced around his career, pulling up plays from his freshman season. They were amazed by his recall. On some plays, he knew the outcome before it started, simply based on down, distance and opponent. Wilson has ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), like some others in his family, and it created challenges in the college classroom, but it has no effect on his ability to absorb football concepts, according to people close to him.

    "His mental horsepower is through the roof," Saleh said.

    The Jets didn't want to overwhelm Wilson with a dozen people on the videoconference calls, so they limited it to five or six, including LaFleur, passing-game specialist Greg Knapp and quarterbacks coach Rob Calabrese, each of whom wrote separate scouting reports on the top five quarterback prospects.”

    Yes, Max Mitchell played, as did Herbig. Believe Feeney came in for Tomlinson at one point, but may be wrong about that.

    He did for a couple of plays when Tomlinson went out to get his shoe back on and tied.

    Spencer (6-4, 300) was drafted by the Broncos in the seventh round in 2021 out of Mississippi State. He appeared in one game last season before signing a reserve/future contract in January. Denver waived him in August. He totaled 100 tackles, 23 TFL, 7 sacks and 1 INT for the Bulldogs in four seasons.

    Spencer, was a Broncos seventh round draft pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. He went down with a knee injury last week, which ultimately led to the injury designation with the waiver. He was already on the bubble before that injury, so its an unfortunate situation for him.

    Whatever it is, clearly it's something that needs his full attention to try and fix. Saleh hit on this in the presser. It's not fair to ask him to try and fix this issue(s) while also asking him to prepare for the next opponent. Not fair to him, not fair to the team. Hopefully it works out; it's in everyone's best interest that it does. 

    Well everyone that is a true Jets fan.

    Let's remember Wilson's prep for the season, about two weeks into camp in
    the first pre-season game (8/12) he injures his knee.  He then loses four
    weeks (season started 9/11) of camp reps and technique work as he gets
    operated on and rehabs.  Wilson then gets back on the practice field and
    starts his first game on 10/2, I believe he focused so much on rehabbing and
    playing that he let his footwork go into the toilet.  Even though Saleh said
    he wants to get him back onto the field before the season ends, I wonder if
    there's enough practice time to correct his flaws

    I think his bad footwork is when pressure is coming up the middle. There’s no pocket so he’s unable to to set his feet. 

    I also think if his first read isn’t open he’s having a hard time knowing what to do next. Indecision sets in his brain leading to all hell breaking out with his legs.

    Lets give the #2 pick to a first time OC and first time “QB coach”

    You knew what you had in Wilson going into this year yet you didn’t bring a viable plan b QB 

    Zach Wilson should have been pulled last week with a chance to win the game 

    Benching him right before we finally play a cup cake defense, after facing the top 5 defenses in the NFL all in a row is complete bullsh*t 

    Making him inactive is a moronic move. Wilson needs to be practicing, engaged, getting better

    Everything is so damn cryptic and political with this organization. This is a bunch of clueless coaches trying to save face

     Clown show 

     

    Whatever you say Bozo.

    You can’t say it’s ‘never’ been solid. At best you can say it’s inconsistent. 
     

    after the NE debacle I went back and looked at the tape of the BUF game, and for grins the 4th qtr of the PIT game. His footwork is just fine in those instances. I don’t understand why he’s so inconsistent with his footwork from week to week. Kinda seems like when things don’t go well, he presses and loses focus?  Like I said, IMO, it’s just weird. 

    Was there pass rush pressure coming from up the middle?  I could be wrong but he isn’t handling pressure up the middle. It doesn’t allow him to step up and throw.

    You are probably right. They could go back to Wilson. I should have added, "imo" I dont think that Wilson stays as Jet long term.

    everyone has an opinion..I just don't understand why we (not just you) all have to make a prediction..Guess that's the social media world today...I'd rather see how it all plays out and hope as Jets fans that he develops as the organization hoped when they picked him

    They are actually trying to develop him old school now..Bravo!   Sit, learn, work your ass off and go win back the job..When/if?  We will see.  It's on Wilson now.

    MLF started out this Presser just Great! He was honest, open, and emotional.  He believes in Zach Wilson and he took full responsibility for the offense, and that is why while I have had problems with him and his play calls that I think we have a real gem in LaFleur!

    So he took accountability.......

    I agree regarding MLF..If a play doesn't work it's always the OC's fault in fan's eyes...

    didnt see it posted https://www.newyorkjets.com/video/oc-mike-lafleur-press-conference-11-23-week-12

     

    he called out Zach's bottom half as the problem, which is what Warner was saying as well. Its mind blowing that a guy gets picked second and you are now trying to fix his footwork in year 2. is it possible that got much worse? i doubt it.

    possible with being under fire from the pass rush.......

    So now, we know. Saleh has made the decision, and I still feel that the Wilson experience has now finished with the Jets. You can´t make that kind of change and expect to flip back to Wilson. I don´t think so. Unless White is absolutely horrendous. 

    Why not?  I know everyone - beat writers, talk shows, social media all like to finalize everything today.  But let it all play out.

    Geno Smith was written off by everyone..Mims and Moore too. As I recall so was Quinnen Williams...

    It's unfair to paint LaFleur as the problem, but he contributes to some of the frustrations we're seeing boil over. The lack of in-game adjustments combined with dramatic differences in the passing gameplan/personnel usage has been an issue amongst the skill position groups, but also Saleh and the front office. Saleh, specifically, believes in simplicity so that players can think less and play more explosive, whereas LaFleur is more committed to identifying and attacking defensive weaknesses, which is why we see these weekly changes to how they try to attack defenses in the air. Saleh wants the offense to be easier and to commit to certain philosophies, so one of the major changes expected is that Saleh will be more involved in overseeing the weekly offensive gameplan --- lets call it "theme" --- going forward. 

    As far as what happens moving forward. The rumor I have heard is that LaFleur wants Mike White to get an opportunity to run his offense. I'm not convinced Saleh is in his corner, and if he were, its likely more of a temporary measure/punishment for Zach's attitude post-game (reports of him "walking around like it wasn't his fault" are greatly exaggerated, but he was ***pissed*** after the game and was reluctant to recap things with LaFleur). I get that there were differences on the game-plan and there was a desire to change things up, but even if the wind is an issue that can't be the hill you die on as a player. It's concerning that Zach let so many things get in his head this week, and it's also concerning that he's letting his emotions get the best of him. He was mad, but the media response after the first NE game is the reason why he's been so snappy; according to his PR team, he has a real distain for Connor Hughes. Their take is that Connor has been a suck up ever since Zach arrived here and used the first loss as an opportunity to unfairly character assassinated him (again, this is Zach's perspective not mine) by labelling him as selfish and immature and entitled after the first NE loss. Fair, unfair, or otherwise, what Zach doesn't seem to realize that his tone and comment in his past few interactions with the media basically validates their criticisms of him on the surface. 

    There's a lot to unpack with the Zach Wilson situation and while I am sure the team is not ready to give up on him, I would be remiss to ignore some of the red flags. I get that Zach is doing what he's being told to do; I get that he's playing within the gameplan even if that does in some ways "neuter" the passing game. As a player, your job is to execute the way its called. Even if its not perfect, the excuse making is concerning. He either has to take the offense by the balls and make it his own, or he's going to be on the bench. 

    Bart Scott & Willie Colon labeled Zach that last year after whatever loss it was when Zach tried to run a QB sneak at the goal line from 2-3 yards out
