Robert Saleh: Jets Offense ‘Needs To Get On The Same Page’

New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh says the team’s offensive issues are collective rather than due to Zach Wilson.

The Jets quarterback has been scapegoated for the 27 – 6 defeat against the Chargers on Monday night. Zach Wilson finished the game 33-of-49 for 263 yards on an average of 5.4 yards per attempt.

As well as that, he had no touchdowns, no interceptions and a 17.9 QBR. Zach Wilson fumbled three times, two for loss, and was sacked eight times. However, Robert Saleh says the entire offense needs to be on the same page. Currently they rank 30th in points scored and 31st in yards.

It added up to a touchdown-less night and a 27-6 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

“There’s some good, some bad that he can build off of,” Robert Saleh said. 

“Some things he still needs to get rid of whether it’s understanding when enough is enough. Understanding what defenses are giving you and just being a little bit quicker and saying no to things, if you will. 

“I thought overall he was distributing the ball and like I said we were moving it at times, always presence in the pocket for every quarterback in football can always be a little bit better, but like I said, he could be a lot better. It’s lazy to just put it all on him. I think like I said, it was a very, it was collective all the way across the board.”

“It is the easy thing to do,” Saleh said of replacing Wilson. “He’s the most, him and the play caller are the two most visible things. So, when things aren’t good, it’s easy to blame them, right? It’s easy to blame the people who are most visible to the camera, but it’s important to keep the main thing the main thing, watch the tape. Look at the breakdowns whether it was on the offensive line at an execution standpoint, play-call standpoint.”

“There’s a bunch of different reasons and obviously they also get paid. So, they did a lot of really good things too, but if it was just him, it would be something that would be worth discussing, but this is a collective issue that we all need to get on the same page with. 

“Whether it’s dropped balls, players being where they’re supposed to be, executing the way we need to execute, calling plays that need to be called, putting players in the positions they need to be put into that’s all of us and yes, he has a lot of things that he needs to improve on and I know he understands that, but at the same time, this is collective.”
