Robert Saleh: We haven't seen the last of Zach Wilson

New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh says Zach Wilson's career with the Jets is still not over. Last month, the Jets were disappointed by Wilson's inability to take the responsibility for the team's loss to the New England Patriots.

Shortly after that, the Jets benched Wilson fpr Mike White. But after White sustained a rib injury, Wilson returned to the starting quarterback last Sunday against the Detroit Lions. After suffering a 20-17 loss to the Lions, the Jets also suffered a 19-3 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday Night Football.

In the third quarter against the Jaguars, Wilson was replaced by Chris Streveler. "We haven't seen the last of him," Saleh said of Wilson after the game.

Saleh not putting an end to Wilson's time with the Jets

After the Jets benched Wilson last month, the plan was to give the quarterback time to get back to the drawing board and start from the scratch.

In the losses against the Lions and Jaguars, Wilson didn't really do much and show some notable signs of improvement. "You'd be remiss if you didn't try to acknowledge the fact that there's a confidence thing there because when people are confident they can conquer the world.

We have to help him and it starts with coaching," Saleh said. After having yet another disappointing performance, Wilson admitted that he needs to look himself in the mirror and try to figure out what he needs in order to turn around his career.

“I’ve got to look myself in the mirror, I’ve got to go back and watch this tape, and you’ve got to be hard on yourself and just say, ‘Why are we not moving the ball?’ It starts with me,” Wilson said.

“I didn’t put my team in the best position there and we didn’t do anything on offense," Wilson said.
