Good morning, Gang Green Nation. I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. After appearing as a co-host on SiriusXM this week, Alex Smith is making waves for his opinion on defensive-minded coaches developing young quarterbacks. Maybe it’s some projecting based on his own time in the NFL, but in the process Smith took shots at New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh for how the team handled the Zach Wilson situation. It’s kind of interesting to see how many people believed the Jets failed Wilson - considering most top-3 quarterbacks should be able to start in the NFL from the moment they’re drafted. If they aren’t it seems more like the player wasn’t worth the pick, than the organization failing to develop them. In either case, however, it’s still the fault of the team drafting them - so there’s some point in that. In any case, here are your links to the Jets to start your morning.
