Zach Wilson Urges Improvement: We Must Elevate Our Performance.


Sep 18, 2023

Quarterback Zach Wilson made his return to the Jets’ starting lineup and delivered a performance reminiscent of his previous struggles. Despite his efforts, Wilson’s stat line showed he went 12-of-27 for 170 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in a disappointing 30-10 loss against the Cowboys. To make matters worse, he was also sacked three times. The Cowboys dominated the offensive play count with 83 plays compared to the Jets’ mere 46, spearheaded by Wilson’s leadership.

While there were glimpses of hope during the game, such as a remarkable 68-yard touchdown pass to Garrett Wilson and a strong field goal drive that closed out the first half, Wilson acknowledged his shortcomings in the postgame press conference. Expressing a desire to improve, he admitted that the offense fell short of expectations and emphasized the team’s need to perform better moving forward.

Jets head coach Robert Saleh, as well as other teammates, were quick to defend Wilson, placing the blame for the loss on the team as a whole rather than solely on the young quarterback’s shoulders. It was evident that the Jets struggled in all facets of the game, and Wilson’s improvement will be crucial for the team to achieve any success this season.
