The Jets have made the decision to bench Zach Wilson as the starting quarterback. Tim Boyle will be taking over the starting position for the upcoming game against the Dolphins. This decision follows Wilson’s poor performance against the Bills, where he was eventually replaced by Boyle. Despite Coach Saleh’s initial support for Wilson, it seems that the team has now reached a turning point.
It has been stated that the Jets believe in Wilson’s abilities, but it seems that the recent string of performances has led to this change. As for Boyle, his previous record with the Lions does not inspire much confidence. He has started three games, all of which were losses. With a career completion rate of 60.8 percent, 607 passing yards, three touchdowns, nine interceptions, and a passer rating of 50.9, Boyle’s stats are not impressive.
The question now is whether Boyle will be able to make a difference for the Jets’ offense. Despite his subpar statistics, Coach Saleh has made it clear that he does not believe Boyle will be worse than Wilson. It remains to be seen how this change will play out for the Jets moving forward.
