Is it too for much for a rookie QB? One former NFL QB thinks so.
Jets rookie QB Zach Wilson is coming off a four interception game in the Jets 25-6 loss to New England.
Late in the New England radio broadcast, on 98.5 The Sports Hub, long-time Patriots color analyst Scott Zolak, a former NFL QB in the 1990’s (was in Jets camp in 1999), surmised that the Jets might need to tweak their offensive play-calling a tad to help the young QB.
“It’s too expansive,” Zolak said about the Jets’ offensive approach against New England. “Everything is [shot-gun] and spread and I know he dealt with a lot of that in college, but at the same [time], part of the pro game is being able to put your hands under center. Maybe it’s a height issue for him. I don’t know that. Maybe he’s more comfortable in the ‘gun.’ But they are going to have to protect him and give him some other chances where it’s not all on his shoulders.”
