Aaron Rodgers has weighed in on the Zach Wilson situation in New York.
Jets head coach Robert Saleh recently declared that Wilson would be benched and demoted to the third-string quarterback position after his inability to complete a pass to a wide receiver in the team’s lopsided loss to the Bills.
Saleh expressed to the media that he is making changes to stir things up and assess if any improvements can be made within the stagnant offense.
“Obviously, Zach, it’s not all him, but there are some things that he needs to be better at and this is just another situation to see if we can give another guy an opportunity, see if something can change”
Aaron Rodgers, who suffered an injury in the initial game of the season, expressed feelings of guilt about Zach Wilson’s predicament during his appearance on the Pat McAfee show.
“I do think he still has a bright future in the league, this has been a tough go for all of us…This is not how any of us thought this was gonna go dowm, it was me and my show, Zach getting to learn and watch it first hand and not have the pressure to go out there and play and so obviously this is disappointing and I have some personal guilt around the whole thing/
” I’m p-ssed that I wasn’t able to play…if I was out there, I feel like I would be playing well, there would be different narratives around our team, Zach would have had the opportunity to learn and grow without the pressure on him this season.”
Certainly, Aaron was bound to make a comeback and take over from Zach Wilson sooner or later. However, the significant question now lingers: does this development impact Rodgers’ timeline for returning from his Achilles injury?
