Fisher and the Jets: An NFL Blog
The New York Jets have had their struggles in the past seasons, and as a Jets fan myself, I’m tired of it. Every season feels like the same, boring, dull Jets. However, there is a spark in this team now, something that I have not felt in my 6 years of being a Jets fan. I feel as if it is the start of a new era in New York Jets football.
This past offseason has given almost every Jets fan some hope going into the new NFL season. They hired San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh to become the new head coach of the Jets, who always preaches culture and builds a bond with every single player on the roster with the famous mantra, “All gas, no brake.” We have had a multitude of free agent signings such as Corey Davis (WR), Carl Lawson (DE), Justin Hardee (DB/ST), Sheldon Rankins (DT), Morgan Moses (RT), and a few others. However, the one thing that stands out above the rest during this offseason process is the NFL Draft. Going into the draft the Jets had the 2nd and 23rd pick in the first round which had every Jets fan ecstatic due to the amount of talent this draft class had in store. But most Jets fans knew exactly who they wanted at that second overall draft spot: BYU product, QB Zach Wilson. Wilson dominated, posting unreal QB numbers in 2020, which was his breakout season by far, having 3,692 yards, 33 touchdowns and three interceptions, rushing for 254 yards and 10 rushing touchdowns, while also completing 73.5% of his passes. Once the Jets selected him, it was sort of hard not to be optimistic about the upcoming season.
