Ben Blessington and Michael Nania answer mailbag questions about Zach Wilson’s stats, Jamison Crowder’s future, who starts at LB, and more.

Coming into a cutthroat New York market that is coming fresh off of a failed Sam Darnold era, Zach Wilson is going to have immediate pressure on his shoulders when he takes the field for his NFL debut. But how high should those expectations be? Exactly what level of production should fans realistically hope Wilson can reach?

On the latest episode of the Cool Your Jets podcast – and the first-ever recorded live and in-person – Ben Blessington and Michael Nania tackled that question and plenty more.

Jamison Crowder has become a hot topic since the selection of slot maestro Elijah Moore. Should the Jets cut Crowder for the $10.4 million savings or ride out the final year of his contract and enjoy the depth he provides to the wide receiver room?

The spotlight has shifted to second-year offensive lineman Cameron Clark following the Jets’ lack of an offensive line selection after Alijah Vera-Tucker. Could Clark make a play for the opening-week starting right guard spot?

There is plenty of discussion going around regarding what the Jets will do at the cornerback position. The team is extremely young at cornerback, lacking any proven names whatsoever. On the outside, Bryce Hall provides plenty of promise, but it’s too early to completely trust him, while Blessuan Austin is coming off of a rough second season. In the slot, it looks to be a battle between second-year undrafted free agent Javelin Guidry and rookie Day 3 selections Michael Carter II and Brandin Echols. Will the Jets roll with this or add a veteran like Richard Sherman or Steven Nelson?

The Jets are also green at linebacker with Hamsah Nasirildeen and Jamien Sherwood appearing poised to battle with Blake Cashman for the starting WILL linebacker spot. Who has the edge in this crucial positional battle?

Ben and Michael answer all of these questions and more on the latest episode of Cool Your Jets.
