Former New York Jets quarterback and current “The NFL Today” analyst Boomer Esiason hasn’t been shy about criticizing Jets starter Zach Wilson throughout the season.
That trend continued following New York’s 27-6 home loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday night.
“Zach Wilson just has no clue…Their offense is just stuck in neutral,” Esiason said during Tuesday’s edition of the WFAN “Boomer and Gio” program, per Ryan Chichester of Audacy. “There is no excitement, there’s no expectation, there’s no leadership. I know Aaron Rodgers is standing on the sideline. I think it’s important for him to be around to help Zach through some games like this. But at the end of the day, it really comes down to one thing in the NFL, you either win or you lose.”
Wilson took eight sacks, lost two of three fumbles and completed 33-of-49 passes for 263 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions against the Chargers. While former quarterbacks such as Hall of Famer Troy Aikman and ESPN’s Dan Orlovsky have mentioned that Wilson isn’t the only thing negatively impacting the Jets offense this fall, Esiason suggested the 24-year-old has lost members of the locker room for a second straight year.
