The New York Jets have tried to remain even-keeled since Aaron Rodgers went down with an Achilles tear, but it might be time for them to start panicking after another loss.
Coming off an embarrassing defeat against the Dallas Cowboys, the Jets looked more competitive against the New England Patriots in Week 3.
New York was in a position to win the game late, but unfortunately fell short and would suffer their second loss of the season.
Zach Wilson has been starting for the team and he had another uninspiring performance as he only completed half of his pass attempts for 157 yards and no touchdowns.
Robert Saleh opted to try and run the ball more in order to protect Wilson, but with the Jets trailing he had no choice but to let the signal caller try and win the game.
The noise is only growing louder for New York to find another quarterback, but Saleh reiterated his confidence in Wilson via Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.
“Zach Wilson gives us the best chance to win,” Saleh said.

There were rumors that New York was going to look around the trade market or free agency to bolster the quarterback room, but for now it seems like Saleh will continue rolling with Wilson despite his struggles on the field.
At 1-2, though, the Jets still have a chance to make up ground and get back into the playoff mix though it’s hard to imagine they’ll be able to do that so long as Wilson remains under center.
Week 4 could be the last straw as New York draws the Kansas City Chiefs.
