Zach Wilson’s exciting traits translate to a bright future

The New York Jets entered game two of the 2021 preseason against the Green Bay Packers with fans in desperate need of a pick-me-up after Carl Lawson’s season-ending achilles tear.

What could possibly represent this pick-me-up for fans? The answer is easy, of course …

Zach Wilson.

The full Jet X member-only video is near the bottom of this page and can also be seen on the Blewett's Blitz homepage (if you're a paid member and logged in).

Wilson finished his second-ever preseason content 9 of 11 for 128 yards and two touchdowns. He easily topped his output against the New York Giants, which was possible but seemed unlikely, but only thanks to the Jets fans’ understandable yet predictable “wait for the other shoe to drop” mentality.

Wilson looked poised, in control of the offense, decisive and accurate all game. The BYU product showcased exactly why he surged up draft boards, ultimately landing at No. 2 overall.

The starters and some of the main role players in the offense also played well. The offensive line played well overall as a unit, opening up running lanes and giving Wilson plenty of time to deliver the ball.

A couple of running backs popped, Tyler Kroft dominated, and it was nice to see Corey Davis playing well as the No. 1 wideout in the offense.

Not only did the players play well, but we also witnessed a more in-depth look at Mike LaFleur’s offense. Naturally, his the way he uses deception in an east-west variety is also covered in the breakdown below.

Flipping to the defense side of the ball is where we can start to be more negative.

Overall, the defense played poorly against the Packers’ backups, getting gashed in the run game and allowing a 19-play, 10-minute-plus scoring drive in the second quarter. In addition to Wilson, LaFleur and the offense, we also discuss who same if the main culprits were defensively

Not all was negative from the defensive side, as the Jets were able to rally after a few poor drives to start off the game. Young players such as Brandin Echols, Michael Carter II, J.T. Hassell, Tanzel Smart and more enjoyed nice outings.

Below is the latest edition of Blewett’s Blitz film review that goes in on the New York Jets’ 23-14 victory over the Green Bay Packers in Week 2 of the 2021 preseason (over an hour in length).
