Jets Baffling Choice of Personnel Packages a Huge Factor in Sputtering Offense

Yes, Zach Wilson is a very bad NFL quarterback, but the Jets baffling choice of personnel packages shouldn’t be ignored because of Wilson’s ineptitude.  Why offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett is deploying the likes of Randall Cobb over Mecole Hardman or CJ Uzomah over Jeremy Ruckert is beyond us.

Yesterday’s loss to the New England Patriots saw Cobb, an older wide receiver who would likely be out of the league if not for his friendship with Aaron Rodgers, take the field for 43 plays.  The younger, faster and far more explosive Hardman?  He played two snaps.  And surprisingly enough, that’s double the number of snaps played by tight end Jeremy Ruckert.

Despite being one of the key reasons for Gang Green’s success on the ground in week 1, Rucker has been banished to the bench.  Ruckert earned the top grade on the roster from PFF.com in the run game and if you watched the team’s all 22, it was clear as to why.  In very limited action as a pro, Ruckert has been a force in the ground game.  But even still, CJ Uzomah, who isn’t on par with Ruckert as a run blocker, saw 28 reps on offense.

Perhaps there’s something going on behind the scenes that has Ruckert and/or Hardman in the team’s dog house, but if this is just a personnel decision being made by the offensive coordinator or position coaches, it’s time for Robert Saleh to step in and insist on getting improved personnel packages on the field.

Everyone craps on our offensive coordinators when there has only been one common denominator to ineptitudes in our offense over the past couple years.

Stop. It's not just Zach. The questionable personnel decisions have been a staple of Salehs tenure.

Delusional take

Mike White went 8 TDs 15 turnovers here no QB has looked good here since Fitzpatrick

Romo was calling this garbage out play by play 😂

No you stop. Our offense has NEVER looked good with Zach at QB. You can’t show me one game where he looked like a NFL QB. It baffles me that people still defend him. The kid is awful! Andy Reid couldn’t even make him look serviceable.

Did our offense not look WAY better with Mike White at the helm? To the point where players made t-shirts lol. How much does Zach’s family pay you guys to post here?

They made t-shirts before they proceeded to go 1-3 and piss away their playoff chances🤭

in a must win game vs Seattles garbage defense: Mike White 23-46 0 TDs 2 INTs 1 Fumble 47 rating

😂😂😂😂

And we would have still won yesterday’s game with him behind center. Shows how bad Zach is 😂😂😂

Zach is the biggest problem...

Josh Johnson, Joe Flacco and Mike White.... all 3 of these QB's, who are not all world level Qb's made the offense look like an actual NFL offense. 

Sure Mike White went 1-3 last year, Berrios drops the game winning catch on the last drive. so yes 1-3.

 

Zack is so bad, consistently misses WR that are open many times yesterday again. Throws late to guys. DOesn't trust the reads , holds the ball too long and creates his own pressure in the pocket.

Dude is a mid tier back up level QB... same song and dance from 2021 and 2022.

There were a ton of open looks yesterday and Zach missed them... plain and simple.

The kid plays with a load in his diaper every game.

 

Some of you will sit here and defend him as if he hasnt done the same **** for three years straight. He is statistically the worst QB in the league for 2 now going on 3 years 

Straight into the woodchipper with him and the lot of you still holding on to him.

One thing jumps off the page; went to a JV high school game Saturday, same awful conditions. Both offenses put players in motion, ran sweeps, pitchouts, options. no great secrets, basic football; move guys around to make the defense think could go to this guy, or that guy, run or a pass, keep them guessing. These were kids who spare some Madden and Pop Warner are just learning football.

It isn't that hard. 

Hackett lines up 11 guys, and...they mostly stand there, stationary, waiting for the snap.  Almost every 1st and 2nd down play is a run up the gut, followed by the Jets' tradition of dumpoff pass in the flat on 3rd down, short of the stick. No argument, Wilson is terrible. Heck, put some combo of the various RBs and run the option for all I care, but for godsakes, do SOMETHING to make the defense use some candle power. You cannot allow NFL defenses to simply line up and go at you like hungry dogs every down.

Zach is dogwatwer. Get over it. Josh Johnson looked all worldly on 2 weeks prep in same system compared to Zach. Zach misses so many plays is not funny

 

im actually kind of tired of sh!tt!ng on him since the night his name was called but then we have people like you who don’t know what they are watching. 
 

facts are fun

 

fact is Zach is trash. He missed guys all day burping the baby
