Flacco Fumbles Backup job; Zach Wilson Elevated to Number two Spot


Recommended Posts

Zach Wilson

All it took was four drop backs from under center from veteran QB Joe Flacco to convince the Jets he was no longer equipped to take NFL snaps.  A killer lost fumble from the immobile Flacco played a huge role in the Jets loss this past Sunday and so Flacco is sent out to pasture with embattled QB Zach Wilson getting a bump up the depth chart.

Head coach Robert Saleh praised Wilson for the work he’s done since being put in street clothes several weeks ago, but there’s little chance Wilson went from being a complete train wreck from a mental and mechanical standpoint to being game ready in just a few weeks.

The decision to move Wilson up the depth chart immediately after Flacco’s meltdown makes it tough to take Saleh seriously when he says Wilson is ready, but what else would you expect the coach to say?  Should there be a need for Wilson to get under center on Sunday against the Lions, we’ll find out for sure if the Jets managed to fix Wilson, or if they’re looking to avoid further embarrassment.

He moved him ahead of Flacco.  Zach hasn't been a very good QB but he hasn't been a turnover machine and he has good mobility.  I look at it more as Zach lost the starting job by being a crappy starter.  Flacco lost the backup job by being a crappy backup.  Zach hasn't really been moved up the depth chart.  The depth chart is failing to Zach.
