Zach Wilson: We can’t keep trying to come from behind

It’s easy to spot one thing the Jets have to work on during their bye week.

The team has not scored a point in the first quarter this season and they’ve scored just 13 points in the first halves of games while going 1-4 to open the season. On Sunday in London, they were down 20-3 at halftime as quarterback Zach Wilson went 5-of-13 for 42 yards and an interception.

Wilson was 14-of-19 for 150 yards after the break and the Jets were able to close within 20-17 in the fourth quarter before ultimately losing 27-20. Better second halves have been a trend for Wilson and he said after the game that he thinks it’s “a confidence thing team-wide” that is keeping the team from playing better at the beginning of games.

“I would just say it’s a block that we’ve got to get over,” Wilson said, via the team’s website. “It’s like our mindset is, ‘Hey, we didn’t start well but we know we can do well in the second half.’ But we’ve got to do well the whole game. We can’t keep trying to come from behind. The NFL is too hard to always come from behind.”

Their next chance to try for a better start will come in New England in Week Seven.

  1. Yet your HC is deferring when you win the toss. That sure inspires confidence. Saw plenty of breaks today, where’s the gas, Saleh?

    NOPE, not with you under center!

    This is exactly what happens when you take a QB that high based on 1 great year! And remember he had a gravy schedule last season because of covid, before that he’d played in just 16 games over 2 seasons and was 8-8 against better opponets and the Jets “sold the farm” and took him #2 overall.

    You picked the wrong qb. Mac Jones led the biggest road comeback for NE since 2017.

    Pride comes before the fall, but your fall started many moons ago when Woody Johnson bought the team.

    “Pride comes before the fall”? Take your own advice.

  6. Wilson can help things by stop passing at receivers feet. These are very simple and short yard throws. I mean, come one man!
