New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson received some recommendation from a useful supply after making his NFL debut.
The MMQB’s Albert Breer reported Wilson spoke with four-time MVP Aaron Rodgers.
Wilson defined to Rodgers how he was going over tape after ending 20-of-37 for 258 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in a 19-14 loss to the Carolina Panthers. Per Breer, Rodgers steered that was the incorrect plan of action as a result of the rookie was unnecessarily overwhelming himself.
Breer wrote the way it was reflective of a bigger problem for Wilson, who “had an excessive amount of going via his head” and was “making an attempt to do an excessive amount of too quick.”
The 22-year-old struggled as a rookie, ending with 2,334 yards, 9 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 13 begins. He accomplished simply 55.6 % of his passes and was sacked 44 occasions.
Many figured Wilson to be a little bit of a challenge when he was popping out of BYU, although, so some early hiccups weren’t completely sudden. And the alternate with Rodgers exhibits how a lot the adjustment to the NFL extends past studying defenses and making faster selections within the pocket.
Jets head coach Robert Saleh was cautious to manage expectations for his younger signal-caller, however Wilson must be in a pleasant place to take a step ahead in his improvement in 2022.
