offensive line woes

the offensive line is and has been the main reason the jets have been losing for years they were letting sam darnold get beat down aaron rodgers ran for his life 4 straight plays and got hurt and they have been letting zach wilson since hes been there get creamed no time back there to do anything with this line. not to mention they are terrible blockers for the backs just terrible. becton is definitely a 1st round bust he should be on a practice squad. some of the back ups should be given a chance cant be worse than these guys. they think their starting spots cant be took none of them deserve to be starters with the way they have been playing. zach wilson will continue to run for his life any quarterback who comes in will be running for their life with this line. before aaron comes back we need an upgrade from this line. sitting them now will be a reality check for their poor play. play after play after play everypne every team is in our backfield for years and we keep blaming only quarterback play when its the offensive line also more than anyone not doing their job providing time protection and blocking.

What I don’t understand is how this team can use absolutely sucky for three quarters and then have a really nice drive to score a td?  Where was this execution before?  And it’s not like the patsies we’re playing any sort of prevent defense at that point in the game.

 And much as people want to pile on Zach, he hir receivers in the hands about four times and they dropped the ball or failed to catch it.

Zach had a ton of time yesterday and held the ball like an idiot 

 

the official Week 3 time to throw number was 3.14 (pi) seconds which is really a ton of time by NFL standards

industry standard is 2.5 seconds. Rodgers could get it out in 2.1 fastest in football 

on the play where Zach sacked himself he had 4.75 seconds

Zach was bad.  No dancing around that.  But the OL didn't hit stride until the second half and there's a reason for that.  The OL coach (or Saleh if he's to blame) juggled the entire line as if every position is simply "OL".  That's not how it works.  There are three positions and two sides to two of them, left and right.  You don't just swap everyone a week before the game and expect cohesion.  The right move would be to bounce Becton to LT where he's played for years, and move a backup into the RT position.  Done.  Keeps the three interior lineman in place where they're comfortable and have muscle memory without having to think. Essentially playing a backup RT at RT to keep the line solid.  Instead you move AVT out of his guard position to tackle, plug in C Joe Tippman at RG, and swap Becton.  Its a completely different lineup.

Did you ever find your teeth after the game?
