It’s been a while since they had a franchise player at the position and they hope that Wilson will turn out to be a great one.
If he turns out to be a solid play-caller, the team will continue to build around him and the Jets’ formula will be copied.
So far, the Jets have drafted some talent around him in Garrett Wilson and Breece Hall.
They also signed tight end C.J. Uzomah who last played for the Cincinnati Bengals.
As they acquire the pieces to formulate a solid roster, Wilson is showing signs of improvement at training camp.
Zach Wilson is 8 for 8 passing today. Has a touchdown to Conklin and two-point conversion to Moore.
Best I’ve seen Wilson perform this summer. Making everything look easy. #Jets

NFL reporter Connor J. Hughes tweeted, “Zach Wilson is 8 for 8 passing today. Has a touchdown to Conklin and a two-point conversion to Moore. Best I’ve seen Wilson perform this summer. Making everything look easy. #Jets”
That he went perfect in passing is great news because he only completed 55.6 percent of his passes last season.
Worst yet, he threw more interceptions than touchdowns.
The Jets hope that Wilson can build from that performance and take the Jets to another level.
The Harsh Reality Facing The Jets
While Wilson gears up for the 2022 season, the reality is that they will be facing tough squads.
In their division alone, they must face the Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots, and Miami Dolphins.
That’s already six games that they may win or lose.
Also on their schedule are the AFC North teams: the Cincinnati Bengals, Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns, and Baltimore Ravens.
Therefore, the Jets will be in for a tough ride and Wilson should elevate his game.
