Jets might switch QBs for Bears game

Sunday’s game might end up being a battle between two backup quarterbacks.

Jets coach Robert Saleh told reporters Monday evening that he was “keeping everything on the table” when it comes to deciding whether or not to replace Zach Wilson for Sunday’s game against the Bears.

Saleh wouldn’t say who could take the second-year quarterback’s place. Mike White, who made three starts last year, is the Jets’ second-stringer. Third-stringer Joe Flacco, though, started the first three games of their season.

“We’ve all got to be able to sit back and look at what’s best for this organization and this team,” he said.

Wilson is coming off a disastrous showing in a 10-3 loss to the Patriots on Sunday. He went 9-for-22 for 77 yards, four sacks and a 50.8 passer rating. His postgame performance was almost as bad; he seemed to shirk responsibility by saying that he didn’t feel like he let down a Jets defense that allowed only three points. 

“I don’t think it’s indicative of how he feels about his team or teammates,” Saleh said. “I don’t think he’s naïve to the fact that the offense didn’t play to the best of their ability.”

The Jets totaled seven yards in the second half and averaged 2.1 yards per play on the game. They lost on a last-second punt return touchdown.

Wilson was the No. 2 pick of the 2021 draft in which Justin Fields was drafted 11th.
