Zach Wilson’s struggles had little to do with this factor

Some people are quick to say that QB Zach Wilson, from Draper, Utah, is a bad fit for the New York market.

And that was one of the reasons he struggled during his first three NFL seasons, due to the glare of the #1 media market.

That is hogwash.

First of all the market isn’t that tough anymore.

It used to be a lot tougher.

Watch the press conferences.

Wilson’s issues had little to do with the market.

It had to do with being over-drafted, going second overall, after one standout year in college against weak competition.

It had to do with being rushed into action as a rookie before he was ready to play.

It had to do with struggles getting off his first read. He was too often a one-read-and-run kind of QB.

It had to do with inconsistent mechanics and footwork.

And it also had to do uneven offensive line play.

It wasn’t the market.
