Despite a lackluster first start in a 34-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Friday, the New York Jets are sticking with Tim Boyle as their quarterback for at least one more game.

Head coach Robert Saleh told reporters on Saturday that Boyle will start over Zach Wilson and Trevor Siemian in Week 13 against the Atlanta Falcons.

After watching the offense flounder for 10 games with Wilson under center, Saleh finally made a change in the third quarter of last week's 32-6 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Boyle finished that game and was named the starter for the Black Friday matchup with the Dolphins. He was cited as having "unbelievable knowledge of the system" by offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett going into his first start of the season.

 

The 29-year-old went 27-of-38 for 179 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions against Miami.

One of Boyle's interceptions was on a Hail Mary attempt at the end of the second quarter that Dolphins safety Jevon Holland returned 99 yards for a touchdown.

Even though Boyle's stats from the game didn't do much to inspire confidence, New York's 13 points scored were its most since a 13-10 overtime win over the New York Giants on Oct. 29.

Granted, six points against the Dolphins were from the defense when Brandin Echols picked off Tua Tagovailoa and returned it for a touchdown in the second quarter.

The last time New York's offense scored at least two touchdowns in a game was a 23-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4.

It's unclear at this point if Saleh is going to shake up the depth chart behind Boyle. Wilson was demoted to the No. 3 quarterback behind Siemian, who had been on the practice squad since Sept. 26, against the Dolphins.

Aaron Rodgers continues to insist he will play again this season, with Fox Sports' Jay Glazerreporting on Thursday the four-time MVP wants to come back regardless of New York's record "to show he can come back from that Achilles tear faster than pretty much any quarterback ever."

Friday's loss dropped the Jets' record 4-7 with six games remaining. They are currently three games behind the Houston Texans and Pittsburgh Steelers in the loss column for the final two playoff spots in the AFC.

This is the "right" thing to do. However, let's remember that Boyle did nothing in the first 3 quarters. The O looked pretty much identical to that with ZW under center. Only in the 4th, when Miami went to mostly 1 and 2 deep zone looks with a 21 point lead, did things open up underneath for him to start getting completions and decent yards.

At this point, the O is totally broken due to a combination of factors, most notably a lousy OL and mediocre to bad receiving corps, that only a super good QB could elevate. And that super good QB went down 4 plays into the season...

False it is the playcaller. Nothing wrong with players

The tank makes the most sense now. Will get a WR or OT.   With Rodgers coming back, and the Jets getting rid of Wilson and promising a better back up QB, that should give the players some hope, for next year.

Right now the hope is to tank and play young players.

Boyle has until halftime for me. The Jets will take the field at home against the Falcons and a lot of people will expect a Jets win. If he can’t move the ball on a fellow team in misery, Siemien comes in quickly 

No one is expecting a JEST win.

This isn’t a tank job. That’s a fan cope. The Jets have little options at QB - Zach showed that he was beyond redemption, and Boyle vs Siemian is a toss-up. And between those two, they’re going with the guy that Rodgers and Hackett prefer (Boyle). 

Zach is far and away the best QB on the roster. The extraordinary incompetence of JD and Hack lead to him being scapegoated. I hope he lands in San Fran and goes geno smith on this sh*thole franchise

I don't how pairing up one of the worst QBs in the NFL with one of the worst Offensive Coordinators in the NFL could have gone so wrong. 

Their plan was for Aaron Rodgers to save their ass, and no one had a backup plan. Douglas had no insurance behind Rodgers and Woody literally didn’t pick up the insurance on Rodgers which is hilarious at this point
