If the NFL knockouts start today, the New York Jets will stand out, currently owning the 9th seed of the AFC. They are just one game away from a playoff spot and that makes every game for the rest of the season a must-win. The Jets have to do their best going forward and 2022 has shown that their best move has been with Mike White at the center, not former No. 2 player Zach Wilson.
white will can’t play thursday, which means the season will likely depend on Wilson’s arm, the same arm completing 55% of his passes and making as many interceptions as touchdowns. I mean, for God’s sake, Wilson has only one game in eight games starting in 2022 with a passer rating over 100. That’s the number of points Mike White has in his three starting games.
II’m not saying Mike White is the solution. I’m just saying that neither does Zach Wilson. That said, the Jacksonville Jaguars found their solution in Trevor Lawrence. After a slow start to his career – largely due to Urban Meyer’s ineptitude – Lawrence has transformed dramatically, Power Ranger-style into the generation QB talent most people have come to expect. he. As of Week 9 of this season, Lawrence topped the NFL in passer rating (111.2), completion rate (70.4) and second in touchdown (14), all while only throw one interception.
The Jaguars are leading 4-2 in that span, and have placed themselves in a dense position in the AFC playoff picture – just one game short. AFC South-leading Tennessee Titans. In addition, Jacksonville holding cracker.
Yes, it looks like JagThey found their future man, but he was supposed to be a jet. If the jet Fans can’t hold back these memories yet, they probably remember starting the 2020 season with a 0-13 record. The “”Tanks for Trevor” the spell is in full effect, and as long as Adam Gase crazy eyes failed to magically turn the Jets around in the final three weeks of the season, the biggest midfield prospect since Andrew Luck joined MetLife.
Even so, gasoline can’t even rise normally. His Jets have won two of their last three games against the Los Angeles Rams 10-6 and 11-5 Cleveland Browns. This is the same team that lost 37 to the Seattle Seahawks last week. Unexpectedly, however, the Jets turned on their jets… and boomed to the end of the regular season with their best kick of the year 2020. Meanwhile, the Jaguars have lost 15 games. consecutively after winning the first game of the season against Indianapolis University. That’s the right way to increase.
If Gase had done his job and lost just one more game, the Jets wouldn’t have Zach Wilson right now. They will have their first overall pick, which they will definitely use for Lawrence. I’m not sure if the Jaguars will get Wilson on the second pick, but that nightmare is the Jets fans wondering if Wilson’s potential will ever be unlocked hasn’t even begun yet.
The vision for what could happen will be clear on Thursday. Wilson is nowhere near Lawrence’s level right now, and I doubt he’ll ever get there, at least at his current pace. Adam Gase stopped the Jets from finding their long-lost answer in quarterback. They were forced to settle for Wilson, and see that got them… trapped in QB purgatory again.
Can the Jets win on Thursday? Sure, but don’t be shocked that Lawrence shines ten times brighter than Wilson. That said, Wilson’s record is 5-3 and the Jets are averaging 20.5 points per game with him as the starter, a step up from them. average season of 20.1. There are some positive signs, but not nearly enough to forgive Gase for what he did. Not even close.
