Jets’ Robert Saleh won’t commit to Jack Wilson as QB Sunday

Florham Park, NJ — New York Jets Coach Robert Saleh wavered in his commitment Jack WilsonThis week sets up a potential quarterback change.

Three weeks after saying Wilson would be the starter for the rest of the season barring an injury, Saleh was noncommittal Monday about whether the 2021 second overall pick would start against Sunday. Chicago Bears.

It marked the first hint of doubt from the organization about Wilson’s status as the No. 1 quarterback.

“We are putting everything on the table in the next few days,” Saleh said.

Asked if he was ready to name Wilson as this week’s starter, he said, “Not right now, until I evaluate everything.”

Wilson was informed of his condition by coaches, essentially keeping him in limbo.

Mike White Next on the depth chart, follows Joe Flacco, who started the first three games after Wilson recovered from a preseason knee injury. Saleh hasn’t ruled out the quarterback as a potential replacement.

Wilson is 5-2 as a starter, but he has pitched poorly in two of his last three games — both losses. New England Patriots. He completed just nine of 22 passes for a career-low 77 yards in Sunday’s 10-3 loss. Later, he showed little accountability with comments that went viral. Asked if he had lowered the defense, Wilson simply said, “No. No.”

Some defensive players were offended by the comments, sources said.

Apparently, Saleh wasn’t happy with the way Wilson handled his postgame press conference.

“Is it wrong? Of course,” Saleh said. “Is it something she’ll be good at? Of course.”

He said Wilson needs to understand “it’s our job to take the bullet and own it,” adding, “I don’t think that’s indicative of how he feels about his team or his teammates.”

A team meeting on Monday discussed Wilson’s poor play, a source said. Saleh said all performances, good and bad, are mentioned in team meetings.

At 6-4, the Jets are still in the playoff hunt, but they’re not getting much production out of Wilson. He has just four touchdown passes, one less than Flacco, who hasn’t played since Week 3.

Saleh emphasized that every position, not just quarterback, will be evaluated.

“When you have 100 yards of offense [actually, 103]I don’t care how good New England is — and they are good — that’s unacceptable,” Saleh said. “That’s not NFL football.”

An exasperated Saleh said after the game that the offensive performance in the second half (totaling 2 yards) was “dogs—.” Saleh said Monday that he has no plans to replace Playckler, offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur.

Wilson drew heavy criticism after throwing three interceptions against the Patriots on Oct. 30, but he responded nicely with a solid game. Buffalo Bill.

But Sunday’s performance was a big step back. the receiver Garrett Wilson And Denzel Mims During the game was clearly frustrated, and Garrett Wilson Jake was furious with reporters, calling the offense a “sorrowful” unit without mentioning Wilson by name.

“I think we’ve got a championship-quality defense and I think we’ve got really good players on offense,” Saleh said. “From a scheme standpoint, I think we’re right up there with everybody else. But I’m just trying to evaluate how we can get this offense going a little bit.”

Wilson ranks 23rd in total QBR (45.2) and 34th in completion percentage (55.6) among 34 qualified passers. Predictably, three players made available to the media Monday expressed confidence in Wilson. asked his level of confidence in Wilson, the guard Laken Tomlinson Said, “That’s too much. He’s our quarterback. What do you mean?”
