How confident are you that Zach will be a top-quartile QB?

  1. 1. How confident are you in this statement: "Zach Wilson will become a top-8 NFL QB"

    • I always have full confidence in the next Jets savior until he proves otherwise.
    • Recklessly confident. Only injuries/a terrible team situation can hold him back. If he doesn't succeed, it is someone/something else's fault.
    • Cautiously confident. I like everything I see but there is so much that goes into it (mental part of his game, team situation, etc.) that it is impossible to ever be fully on board.
    • On the fence. I have no guts and don't want to be wrong on the Internet.
    • Worried. I have concerns but hey I could be wrong and hoping for the best.
    • Debbie Downer. I do not believe he has a chance to be a top QB.
    • All drafted QBs are busts until proven otherwise.

My totally unscientific measure of success for a QB taken top couple slots in the draft is if he becomes a consistent top 8 QB in the league. What say you?

there's a 50/50 chance he will be a great QB though there's only a 10% chance of that  

Agreed.  If Zach busts, it’s on him.  There’s infinitely more talent on offense than there was two years ago and an offensive system that’s extremely QB friendly.  He should hit the ground running thi

I'd love it if we too can have a QB that "stinks" and is "limited" and can throw for 63%, a >3:1 TD:INT ratio and ~3,600 or more yards while leading our team to an 11-5 record. That's the kind

The most Jetsy thing possible: Jets have #1 pick when Arch Manning comes out and the Manning family can complete a hat trick of screwing over the Jets.

Good idea let's see the results before having an opinion.

I was ALL IN with Sam.  really thought he was "it".  and 3 years later here we are.  SO I will go with my typical Jets outlook of "hope for the best but expect the worst" when it comes to him.

He's already the best quarterback in my mind.  

Nothing will deny his greatness.

 

 

 

I like your Sam Darnold avatar.

My mantra is "Hope and root, but Verify".

So I chose "All drafted QBs are busts until proven otherwise."

Until I see him play in an actual NFL game, I don't feel like I should have any actual confidence in his future top 8 status.

He's a good prospect, with a career-to-date in college we've debated endlessly, we all know it.

I want to see some pro play before I start predicting perennial top 10 NFL QB, lol.

I said on the fence/no guts.

I like what I see and I'm optimistic he'll be a quality QB.

But upper quartile means Top 8. That puts him in a class with, say, Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Russell Wilson, Deshaun Watson, Josh Allen, and Lamar Jackson.

We should all be pretty thrilled if it plays out that way but I'm not bold enough to predict it.

I dont love the situation rookie HC, OC, DC, QB coupled with all the young players.  It hasnt worked since the Jimmy Johnson led Cowboys.  That said, I do like what I've seen from the coaching staff and they seem to think he's a great system fit, so who knows. What I do like is that JD has surrounded the kid with talent so at least for once, we wont have the weaponz excuse.  You're getting a true look at him but yeah, I dont see him being a top 8 QB but hope I'm wrong.

"Dead inside, don't care, will rock a Jets hat and watch the games either way" should be an option.

If we ever win a Superbowl I'll blow a kazoo or something.

 Agree if you said  that team, meaning last year. But, Jets seem to be doing everything to make the team better around him. Yet, I’m still a block away or so from even cautiously optimistic. Same time, looking forward to this season more than I have in a decade.

Not sure where he would rank, but following is what I would like to see from Zach statistically:

17 starts (no injuries).  60+% Completions,  Less than 1 pick per game.  More TDs than picks.  Better numbers in Nov/Dec than Sep/Oct.  Regardless of where he would rank - I would be happy with this kind of rookie year.

I would be happy to watch all seventeen games without whipping the remote control at the tv.

Sacking up and having one?

My opinion of Wilson In shorts and a red jersey running the offense against a defense the jets coaches coordinated together while simultaneously trying to evaluate the new defense was mostly positive based on the “with a”  tweets by dudes that never played football  that I happened to see while scrolling through a thread on the internet 

 

better ?

I'll mark you down as cautiously confident, thank you.

If he doesn't work out the Jets should buttress searching for a FQB in the draft by taking some shots in FA (I'm talking about Staffords, not Flaccos). QBs are becoming more mobile (career-wise) than ever before. If you can't build it, buy it.

Bah.  I'll just blindly root for the next guy.  

At least the front office appears to be top notch.  The team at a minimum will be competitive and worth watching each week even if Wilson busts.  

This is going to be a run first team anyway.

I wish we could all make a pact now to not blame weaponz if Zach busts but we all know that a subset of the fanbase will never accept a highly-drafted QB just sucks. There are people here who still believe Jets failed to develop Geno Smith and he was a 2nd rounder and is a detestable human being.
