The New York Jets have finally made a change at the quarterback position. Zach Wilson will not only be replaced by Tim Boyle as the team’s starter, but he will move all the way down to the third spot on the depth chart for Friday’s game against the Dolphins.

The situation was almost predictable from the time Aaron Rodgers went down with an injury during the season’s opening game. The Jets spent the entirety of the 2022 season trying to get Wilson’s game off of the ground as frustrations built among the fan base and in the locker room, and the team’s #1 goal of the off-season was to upgrade the quarterback position.
In what was probably the biggest story of the NFL off-season, the Jets got their guy in Rodgers and could finally leave the Zach Wilson Project in the rearview mirror. But just five plays into the season, Wilson was back under center and ready to lead New York into another tumultuous season.
The results haven’t been good. While Wilson is no longer the absolute worst quarterback in the league statistically, he is close. There was a glimmer of hope for the Jets for about three weeks earlier in the year, but any success that they enjoyed was largely due to the defense. In his 10 games played so far in 2023, Zach Wilson has thrown for 1,944 yards and still can’t crack 60% on his completion percentage. He has thrown 6 touchdowns vs 7 interceptions.
