Last Second Look at Jets vs Steelers; Wilson Debut Will be Under Microscope

As the New York Jets prepare to kick off their week four meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers, hare a few stats, notes and thoughts to ponder.

  • Zach Wilson makes his first start of the season and every move he makes will be heavily scrutinized.  Important to remember it’s just one game, but it feels today is the day the Jets season truly starts.  This is the firs step in the Jets fiding out what they have in Wilson.
  • Safety help.  There’s no nice way to say it.  The Jets have been atrocious at safety.  If Lamarcus Joyner and Jorday Whitehead continue to allow one play after another, it’s time to give Will Parks and/or Ashtyn Davis a look.
  • Unleash the Breece!  The Jets can’t ask Wilson to throw it 55 times the way they have with Flacco.  Lean heavily on the run game and let Breece Hall eat.  He’s a big play just waiting to happen.  Let it happen.
  • Quinnen Williams was called out by defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich for being out of shape this week.  Does Williams make a statement with strong play late in the game?
  • Get Wilson rolling.  Not as in getting him on a roll, but get him rolling out.  A lot.  With Mekhi Becton, Duane Brown and George Fant out, the Jets are down to their fourth-best option at left tackle which would be Conor McDermott.  McDermott has been bad enough to make fans want Wayne Hunter to line up at left tackle.

  • The pass rush.  These guys have to get home.  One week after another it’s excuse after excuse as to why this stacked defensive line can’t get to the QB.  Fix that and the Jets are far more likely to come out of Pittsburgh with a victory.
  • More Elijah.  With several talented targets to choose from, it makes sense that some very good players will see stretches with limited targets.  That has been the case for Moore thus far.  Give him a game with significant targets while Garrett Wilson draws the attention and let Moore do his thing.
