The Jets have decided to bench starting quarterback Zach Wilson in favor of Tim Boyle, according to multiple reports. This move comes after Wilson’s poor performance against the Bills, despite head coach Robert Saleh’s earlier statements that the team believed in him.
Tim Boyle has started three games in his NFL career, all for the Lions, all of which resulted in losses. His career stats include a 60.8 percent completion rate, 607 passing yards, three touchdowns, nine interceptions, and a passer rating of 50.9. These numbers are not promising, but Saleh has decided to give him a chance to prove himself as the Jets’ starting quarterback.
The question remains whether Boyle can perform better than Wilson. Despite his underwhelming statistics, Saleh appears to have confidence in him as the team’s new starter. Only time will tell if this change will be beneficial for the Jets and their struggling offense.
