Booed by home fans in loss, Jets quarterback Wilson admits to confidence crisis

Embattled New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson admitted to a crisis of confidence after he was booed several times by his home fans during New York's 19-3 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday.

Wilson went 9 of 18 for 92 yards with an interception and a dismal 41.9 rating for the Jets (7-8), whose playoff hopes took a devastating hit with their fourth straight loss.

Wilson started the year as the Jets no.1 quarterback, but was benched for reserve Mike White after a series of poor performances.

Wilson has been back in the starting lineup the last two games due to an injury to White, but the second overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft continues to struggle.

The Jaguars are firmly in the playoff chase after the win and head coach Doug Pederson praised his surprising team for overcoming a spate of injuries to remain in the hunt for a spot in the NFL post-season.

Wilson: " I didn't put my team in the best position out there"

"Yeah. I think if it's anything. you're just trying to find some confidence on the field. You know, I'm just trying to feel rhythm and flow and confidence and just the ability to just feel like things are there. And I haven't been able to find that for myself. and so that's that's the goal. That's the search, is how can I approach this film with just that learning mindset and try and just get better from it. But I didn't put my team in the best position out there."

Robert Saleh: "He's going to find ways to continue to improve"

"Confidence is a big thing and I think as a man you're going to have adversity. As a human, you're going to have adversity in your life. You're going to have the ups and downs and obviously he's in it right now. And it's, you know, Zach's the type of kid that's going to work his tail off. He's going to keep his head down and he's going to find ways to continue to improve. Obviously, you'd be remiss if you didn't try to acknowledge the fact that there's a there's a confidence thing there, because when people are confident, they're they can conquer the world."
