Garrett Wilson calls out Zach Wilson for not trusting his receivers

New York Jets rookie Garret Wilson was not happy with the team not trusting the passing game in their 10-3 loss to the New England Patriots.

The New York Jets returned from their bye week after defeating the Buffalo Bills, looking to get a win over Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. Instead, they lost 10-3 on a punt return touchdown by Marcus Jones in the closing seconds of the game. The Jets offense drastically underperformed, picking up a total of just 103 yards, particularly in the passing game. New York, led by Zach Wilson, averaged just 1.7 yards of offense per play.

After the game, rookie wide receiver Garrett Wilson was frustrated with the performance of the offense, saying “s*** was sorry.” That, and he said the team should have more trust in the wide receivers’ room.

Garrett Wilson calls out Jets for not trusting receivers

“This s***’s sorry. We’re out here looking sorry and we know that we’re not sorry. That’s why it really hurts,” said Wilson. “We know that we’re better than that. That’s why it hurts. That’s why it’s frustrating for me.”

The quote was not directed to anyone in particular, but Wilson wants the team to have more trust in the likes of Wilson, Corey Davis, Elijah Moore, and Denzel Mims.

New York’s second-year quarterback struggled mightily in Foxborough on Sunday afternoon, completing just nine passes for 77 yards on 22 attempts. In fact, he compiled just 17 passing yards while completing 4-of-11 attempts in the second half. Not exactly ideal, considering the defense had held New England to three points, until Jones’ punt return touchdown.

Jets head coach Robert Saleh called the performance of the offense in the second half “dog s***.”

After the game, the starting quarterback was asked by Connor Hughes of SNY if he felt he let the defense down. Wilson responded by saying “no” twice.

With this loss, the Jets have now lost the head-to-head tiebreaker to the Patriots. New York surprised many with their 6-3 start to the season entering their Week 10 bye behind their defense. The talent is there on the offense, but it just didn’t click on Sunday, leading to their loss.

The Jets will look to turn things around next week when they face the Chicago Bears.
