What? A good read from Peter King?

I just can't decided when I'm going to forget my own opinion of him and just start waving the pom poms like I always do and try to get onboard regardless. Prior to MLB opening day and the final 4

But in 2019, dogged by labrum and hand injuries, Wilson struggled, and after the season, then-passing game coordinator/QB coach Aaron Roderick told him there’d be a competition for the starting job in 2020.

I was assured this never happened

Zack Wilson Stans: My dear sweet Zack was the unquestioned leader of the BYU program and has a rock-solid bill of health

BYU: We were going to bench him in 2020 because of his poor play and injuries.

Zack Wilson: It is true, I almost lost the starting job because of poor play and injuries.

Wilson Stans: How dare you.

...Beck thinks several years of playing basketball as a kid all over the country—Wilson wanted to earn a basketball scholarship, not football, till his sophomore football season in high school...

It is a good example of him facing football adversity and overcoming it. Sam had a bad coach and he has been a non-functional nfl qb and his career is on the precipice of mediocrity or worse.

I'm with you on wanting the guy who got jerked off, or had sex..... I really don't even know with "massage" people. Like is he accused of assault or rape at this point instead of just degenerate behavior? Theyre almost all degenerates with CTE, why I laugh I'm supposed to listen seriously to them on social issues.. I don't read through the threads entirely or have TV so I'm lost. I still want Watson till he's found guilty(unless this is way worse than I'm aware of). If we're stuck at 2 with all the trades today its probably Wilson. Get used to it

Watch San Francisco......

That is all.....

That would be a scary combo. I don't think he's actually getting moved though. I wouldn't be shocked if the lunatic running the Texans(Not the owner, the cult leader) is involved in this. It doesn't hurt him to kill the trade market for somebody they couldn't afford to let leave and vowed to never play there again

Zach Wilson is legitimate. 

The first time he gets rag dolled like Bronco linebacker AJ Johnson did to Darnold, that's when all the glorious draft hype meets the reality of taking NFL quality hits on those 16 or 17 football days a year.

Behind the 29th ranked, recently rebuilt oline that protects a particular QB's recently rebuilt shoulder, fans hold their collective breath as the next franchise savior peels himself gingerly off the turf.

Somewhere out there in America, a renowned shoulder surgeon stirs as he watches a football game with renewed interest on his 85" X800 4K Sony.  Tony Romo's honey'ed voice fills the surgeon's expansive living room.

"Zach Wilson does appear to be favoring his throwing shoulder. James Morgan, has just put on his helmet and has begun throwing on the side."

Oh Max, ohhhh Maaaxy 😆 

my favorite part of the article was the recall Wilson had about past drives and past plays.  The retention and subsequent dissection of the decisions on each play were the golden nugget in that article for me. Because THAT translates to any level.  Put him in Lafeur’s quick decision, quick throw offense and let him carve the defense up. 
 

And his deeper understanding of that one play he describes- knowing the defense being played and exactly how it stacks against the offensive play he is running- that he has to hold the safeties in order for a small punch hole window to open up and then delivering it there. That is exactly translatable to the NFL. 
 

I know I’m falling back into a bad habit of loving whoever the Jets are going to take. Guilty as I always am. But am I wrong to feel that the Jets really are different this time. For the first time we have the owner, GM and HC aligned perfectly and the next step is bringing a tailor made QB in that fits like a puzzle piece. Zach Wilson’s many strengths fit glove in hand with out offense. He has the arm, athleticism, football acumen and the moxie.  Our big free agent signings are all young ascending talents.  

The Same Old Jets don’t feel the same anymore.  From the new medical staff to the GM, HC, future QB, free agent signings... I’ve let this team break my heart 1000 times and may be setting myself up for another fall. But this feels different. I think it is different.

Sounds like the dude calling him unathletic may have been misguided.

“I think that’s what’s interesting about my career as well. I wasn’t a big recruit. I didn’t have a lot of offers. I went to BYU as just a normal three-star recruit. Nothing special. Nobody expected me to play early. I ended up having a chance to play as a freshman, something that I had to work for—nine quarterbacks in the quarterback room at the time. And then I was nobody last year and I was fighting for my starting job back and having shoulder surgery. Things didn’t go as well as we wanted to and the coaches opened up a competition to try and win the starting spot back. I was so determined to try and win that job back and prove that it was mine.”

Small school prospects can become elite players with dedication and heart. It’s one of the many reason I love Damian Lillard. I have his throwback college jersey from when he was at Weber State. He barely got a scholarship to play anywhere but Weber State gave him a chance and he turned into the #6 overall pick in 2012.. he has went on to have what will be a Hall of fame career 8 years in & will go down as one of the best shooters of all time. Zach Wilson is talented enough to get whatever he wants out of his career. Players who spend extra time on top of extra time on their craft will always come away successful.

King's a fluffer, which is why serious NFL people like Bellichick, the Mannings, Tom Brady, avoid him and his happytalk handy nonsense like the COVID after dinner mints. 

Look, I'll trust Douglas, no matter what. But I saw Chad Pennington's shoulder-surgery scarred career. And while it has no objective basis, I personally have experienced shoulder surgery, and saw my son's D2 DT football career go off the rails due to a torn labrum and surgery.

So Wilson is a small guy no matter how you cut it who after 2 shoulder surgeries will be facing NFL front 7 300 lb. beasts who bench press Hondas and run like cats. Comparing the teams BYU played to Steve Young or Jim MacMahon to whom Wilson's teams faced gives up the ghost. It's laughable. Oh, he looked good runninga round an empty field the other day; let's jump for f__in' joy. 

This would be a ridiculous risk. 

Again, if by some miracle the jets walk away with Najee Harris and Mac Jones(the white Deshawn Watson; oh, his team is too good, let's discounthim, same as Watson was ,  it's the same thing; he doesn't lose, he throws 40 yard accurate ropes with said big asses in his face, facing NFL defenders will not be a new experience) , sign me  the f___ up.

Have watched, read and listened to a lot about Wilson today including interviews. I don’t get the sense he’s any of those things. 

In Wilson's defense, being a hard case douchebag is not mutually exclusive form being a  great QB. But ..he may not be very good so...

I don't know, it's clearly a fluff piece on behalf of ZW's agent in order for Peter King to maintain his level of access. 

That said, for whatever reason, I really like that this kid listens to Steve Young biographies in his off time.

I want a quarterback who is obsessed with being great, and listening to biographies of other great quarterbacks while driving is mildly psychotic... in a good way.

Never have been a Peter King fan. He's a frontrunner, the Eddie Haskell of columnists.

NFL is truly a copycat league and Wilson is Mahomes light. Hopefully he tastes great and is not just less filling.

Still think JD will wait for Fields pro day before making up his mind. Fields is a 5-star player, a legitimate contender.

If we pick one of the QBs at #2, doubt we get enough for Sam to make trading him a better option than having a true QB competition. Predict that under that scenario he will be the Jets opening day QB.
