Grounded Zach Wilson Asks New York Jets "Why Me?" Seriously??
Grounded Zach Wilson Asks New York Jets "Why Me?" Seriously??
Sometimes people can be completely out of touch from the circumstances around them. New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson appears to be one of those people. Many know how Wilson hung his defense out to dry after Sunday's game. Those same people are aware of Zach's general lack of accountability when it comes to his failures on the field. So when Robert Saleh informed #2 of his decision to bench the team's second overall pick in last year's NFL draft, Wilson's response was as expected.
Belichick Stands Between New York Jets & The Playoffs
Belichick Stands Between New York Jets & The Playoffs
A victory on Sunday at Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots, will put the New York Jets on top of the AFC East with seven wins. With triumphs over the Miami Dolphins and the Buffalo Bills, Robert Saleh and his "all gas, no brake" crew own the needed tie-breakers that have Jets fans salivating for a potential playoff birth. 2010 was the last time Gang Green visited the NFL tournament in January. Now, one man in particular is out to ruin those dreams, as he has many times before. Bill Belichick.

New York Jets quarterback, Zach Wilson's performance Sunday against the New England Patriots was nothing new for Gang Green fans.

Trade For Running Back Shows These New York Jets Are Different
For the first time in seven years, the New York Jets are playing winning football. Their 5-2 start has been helped out tremendously by the outstanding play of rookie running back, Breece Hall. On Sunday, Hall reportedly suffered an ACL tear and a minor meniscus tear in the Jets 16-9 victory over the Denver Broncos on the road. The rookie sensation, out of Iowa State University, will miss the rest of the 2022 season. The "next man up" attitude from unusually bad rosters may be a thing of the past for these Jets. General manager Joe Douglas wasted no time following Hall's diagnosis and brought in a quality replacement.

End of 13 Year Draught May Prove To Be Special In New York
Since the turn of the century, there have been some constants in New York sports. The Yankees are most likely to be pretty good and make the playoffs. The Giants will win a Super Bowl every decade or so. The Mets are bad, ok, good and then will collapse and now seem really good. The Jets are terrible and yes, they won on Sunday but have a long way to go before that classification is lifted. I will provide Robert Saleh a receipt for that statement for his files.

Now the fiery coach of Gang Green is "Taking Receipts" on the vocal fans and media. Uh-oh.
