Wilson threw for 170 yards on 12-for-27 passing with one touchdown pass and three interceptions in the Jets’ 30-10 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday, adding more dialogue to the storyline that New York is a diminished team without Rodgers. That came on the heels of a 14-for-21 effort for 140 yards with one TD pass and one interception in relief of Rodgers in a season-opening win over the Bills.
ESPN’s Shannon Sharpe entered the conversation Monday morning, sharing a strong take on the Jets’ third-year quarterback.
“You’re not gonna win with him. Dude couldn’t play dead in a horror movie,” Sharpe said on First Take. “How many scenes do you need to see? I’ve seen all the Friday the 13th’s. I’ve seen all the Nightmare on Elm Streets. … You’ve got to come to the realization he is what he is.”
The Jets compiled a mere 215 yards of total offense against the Cowboys, who boast one of the league’s top defenses. Unfortunately for the Jets, their schedule does not get easier anytime soon.
