Richard Sherman Says Zach Wilson Is Not Good Enough For The NFL

Written by Tony Ghaul

New York Jets QB Zach Wilson completed just nine passes for 77 yards in the team’s 10-3 loss to New England on Sunday. Wilson acted like he had no responsibility for the team’s offensive failures.

Reportedly, Wilson’s poor attitude has understandably rubbed some of his Jets teammates the wrong way.

Wilson has been so bad this year that NFL quarterback turned analyst Dan Orlovsky openly wondered on Monday if he actually knows the Jets playbook. Another former NFL player turned analyst, Richard Sherman went even further.

Responding on Twitter to the video of Zach Wilson claiming he didn’t let the Jets defense down, Sherman wrote, “Wow. 9 completions the entire game and 10 punts. You have let [the] defense down.”

Sherman also wasn’t buying Zach Wilson’s excuse that it was “windy as hell” in Gillette Stadium during Sunday’s game.

“But this terrible play has been the case for weeks. Mac Jones played under exact same conditions 23-27 for 246yds. Hes not good enough for the NFL and the sooner the Jets realize that the better off the rest of this team will be.”

Sherman believes the Jets could possibly pursue Jimmy Garoppolo in the offseason and that if New York had him under center this year the team would be 8-2.
