Saleh doesn’t want to be asked about it every freakin day

Florham Park – A decision was made, at least for three weeks, so don’t ask him about it ad nauseam.

The Jets are going to start Joe Flacco at least for the next three games due to Zach Wilson’s knee injury suffered while scrambling in a preseason game. So between now and then, Jets coach Robert Saleh isn’t going to answer non-stop questions about Wilson, and he made that clear on Wednesday.

“To be honest with you guys, I’m just going to lay this out,” Saleh said. “I really don’t want to talk about the situation anymore. The earliest he is going to be available is Pittsburgh.”

Good for him.

So for those who’ve made a cottage industry out of asking Wilson questions, they will have to change their script for a few weeks.

It could be refreshing to hear more questions about things like the Jets’ run defense, which needs to improve a great deal from last year, going against Lamar Jackson and the Ravens’ powerful rushing attack.

Nothing against Wilson, but how about a time-out for a few weeks from asking questions about him ad infinitum?

It’s getting tedious. There are so many burning questions about this team in all three phases, so how about we broaden the lens a little bit?

So hat-tip to Saleh for trying to put a lid on Wilson questions for a few weeks.
