WestCoastMole Posted December 2, 2022 Share Posted December 2, 2022 Two weeks ago the Jets Offense posted a pitiful performance in the Game with the Patriots in Foxborough Massachusetts. The player most responsible for the performance is Zach Wilson. The two players most directly affected are Wide Receivers Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore. Both players spoke out to the media following that game. Both WRs had seen little of the ball over the past 6 weeks. Zach was clearly not reading the field and not throwing the ball to either Wide Receiver. Both Wide Receivers spoke out to the press calling out the poor play of the offense. While not addressing the matter of Zach Wilson's play they left no doubt where responsibility lied for the matter. Fast forward one week to the Post Game news interviews following the Jets victory thumping the Chicago Bears. When addressing the matter of the improved play of the Offense Garrett Wilson was cautious and circumspect. He acknowledged a necessary move had been made by the Jet Coaching Staff but also expressed the fact of the serious ramifications of the moved. A key player's future with the team had been thrown into doubt. When Elijah Moore was questioned about the change in QB and how it affected the team. Moore treated the football like a long lost lover and pantomimed a renewed lover affair. Moore did this with a wistful grin conveying a sense of vindication. This conduct was similar to that which he displayed when he demanded a trade a month earlier. In Elijah Moore's world everything revolves around Elijah Moore. It's interesting to note that Denzel Mims has cleverly stayed out of this fracas despite calling on the coaching staff to elevate him to that of a starting WR back during training camp. It would seem apparent Elijah Moore's head strong self centered attitude is wearing thin with the Jet Coach. And if it continues I would not be surprised to see Joe Douglas honor Moore's request for a trade even if the team has to cut its losses. The Jets are in line to finish this season vying for a playoff berth. Does Elijah Moore think that if he is traded he will wind up on a team in a similar situation at the end of the 2023 season ? Or will he wind up catch balls on a team that is one of the dregs of the NFL, like Houston, Jacksonville oreven the NY Giants. Be careful what you wish for Elijah or you just might get Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
