Zach Wilson did a complete 180 against the Buccaneers

On the heels of a 26-21 victory over the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Jets fans were looking forward to how their team would match up against a true Super Bowl contender, the Tom Brady-led 11-4 Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

While many of the Jets’ key future pieces were missing in this game, fans still were still able to watch young pieces such as Michael Carter, Michael Carter II, Bryce Hall, Brandin Echols, Alijah Vera-Tucker, Braxton Berrios, and, of course, Zach Wilson.

Wilson, of course, whether his output mirrored the good or the bad variety, would steal the show.

The full film review is at the bottom of this article 

Pundits questioned “just how good” Wilson’s last two weeks against the Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars were—simply because Wilson didn’t light up the stat sheet and both opponents were inferior.

Week 17 marked a time for Wilson to step up.

Without his top two tight ends, top three wide receivers, multiple starting offensive linemen, top two running backs (Carter left early in-game), and a lack of support from a banged up, COVID-19-riddled defense, Wilson played remarkably.

He flipped his brain in a way that completed what he started over the last several weeks. Not only did the BYU produce continue his impressive play, but he also upped it.

Wilson has been and continued to improve his accuracy, transitional and conflict footwork, placement, decisiveness, understanding of defense and much more. It was an encouraging outing, to say the least, and fans hope it will continue in the last week against a tough Buffalo Bills defense to close out the campaign.

In the latest edition of Blewett’s Blitz, Zach Wilson’s excellent performance, as well as the New York Jets’ overall output against the Bucs, is broken down.

Joe I really like your film review. But you keep talking about Hardee making 3 or 3 and half million. His contract is approx 2 million per year and has no guaranteed money beginning this upcoming season. He literally can be cut for nothing.
So when you keep adding the value of Berrios at 3 to 3.5 million based on Hardee this is not accurate. Plus Berrios is small and can’t beat man coverage. This screams replaceable. You would pay 6.5 million for this type player? Makes no sense. You can draft a 4th rounder for 800k a year to do what Berrios does. I love Berrios but for more 4 million, he just has to get his bag elsewhere.

Being an Elite QB is about being a dime dropping passer. I think Wilson has was it takes to be a #1 QB in this league
