Zach Wilson is entering a crucial offseason. The New York Jets 2021 rookie experienced a roller-coaster of a season like none other.
After playing extremely well in August, and then in Week 1 in Carolina against the Panthers (when his offensive line gave him a chance), the BYU product hit a major wall against Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots in Week 2.
Aside from the surprising win over the Tennessee Titans, a good chunk of the middle of Wilson’s season showcased poor quarterback play. Although the attributes were always apparent, Wilson allowed his mind to foul up his game.
The usually confident Wilson turned into an overthinking machine and simply could not turn it around. After a knee injury in New England, that sidelined him for four games, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft beat the Houston Texans in his return, only to then turn the lights on the rest of the way.
Wilson threw five touchdowns to just one interception (while also running in three) in the Jets’ last six games of the campaign. He now enters his first offseason as a pro with his sights set on a breakout sophomore season.
