Now, I no you (like most others here) are incapable of seeing it (due to the Psycosis) but what is the single most important stat for QB's in the NFL? What is their actual goal? Then ask yourself why you believe Zach has been the worst at it. I know the math will be tough to penetrate your blockage but I'll try and help with this on. I know the most important stat for a team. A team, mind you, that has a very strong defense, a powerful running game, and a good special teams unit. Zach has been fine when the rest of the team can do the winning for him. So far (The Bills game is a snapshot into possible growth, but he didn't attempt many passes in that game either) Zach has sunk when he has to attempt more than 30 passes in a game. All 5 of his INTs have come in the 2 games where he threw more than 25 pass attempts. The only other game he threw for 200+ yards was the Miami game, where around a third of those yards came from an easy throw to Breece Hall who ran 95% of the way. I get that he hasn't needed to be productive because the RBs and OL have been dominant. So the only games in which Zach needed to do much was the Pittsburgh game and the New England game. We all know how the Pitt game went. Zach looked great on that last drive. Before that? Not so great. Some of that was the playcalling but some of that was just simple mistakes. Easy to fix. I wouldn't really use this game against him. The New England game was a disaster. He would run around like a headless chicken and his throwaways didn't go far away enough. Despite the 3 INTs he threw the defense held the Patriots to 22 points. Zach wasn't all to blame in this game (See JFM penalty and a bad ST day) but he screwed up big time when it mattered most. Overall as a 2nd year QB he should have progressed more than this. I wouldn't say he's been the worst QB in the game but he's certainly down there. The Jets could have picked up Gardner Minshew or traded for Garoppolo if they wanted a game manager QB who handed the ball off on 3/4 plays and threw easy passes. But they drafted a QB with the 2nd overall pick who they envisioned to carry the team when needed, and so far I've seen a quarter of a game this season where he did that. The Bills game gave me a lot of hope for his future as a Jet because I saw him play confident and avoid the bad habits he had created, but I need to see more of that before I can agree with any "But Zach has a good record" arguments. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
