C-Mac: Zach Wilson wasn't good, but Jets defense was the bigger concern


Zach Wilson threw three picks in the second half of Sunday’s loss to the Cowboys, which didn’t mean much to C-Mac other than reinforcing beliefs he already had when it came to the former No. 2 overall pick.

“I don’t think Zach Wilson is any good,” C-Mac said. “And I don’t think he did anything in that game to make me feel different.”

Still, he isn’t putting Sunday’s loss on Wilson. He is putting it at the feet of the Jets defense that carried the team to victory in Week 1, but looked much more pedestrian on Sunday. A defense as prolific as Gang Green believes itself to be can’t afford to flop one week after being dynamic, and that’s what happened in a 30-10 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.

“The defense didn’t play well,” C-Mac said. “Whether it’s Sauce dropping a pick…they couldn’t get off the field, they had opportunities to make plays and didn’t.

“I still think Zach Wilson is not good enough to be the Jets quarterback, and I felt that because every other part of their team was Super Bowl caliber. Against the Cowboys in Dallas, the defense did not show me to be a Super Bowl caliber defense. They could not get off the field, they didn’t make the play when it was there to make it, they didn’t get any pressure.”
