Zach Wilson says he ‘had to find the fun in football’ again as he hope to reclaim starting job

Read Time:1 Minute, 23 Second

It’s perhaps been the longest three weeks of Zach Wilson’s life. Wilson has had time to reflect and reflect since he lost his starting job following the loss to New England Patriots Week 11.

Wilson said he had to “find the fun in football” again as he looked to reset and improve his fundamentals, which was the biggest factor for him since being benched.

“The biggest thing for me mentally was finding the fun in football,” Wilson said.  “I love this game. It definitely wasn’t lost, but I think you guys felt the frustration over some of those rough games.”

Wilson was made the No. 2 spot on the depth chart Wednesday, making it closer to his return to the lineup. Wilson moved back ahead of Joe Flacco to the No. 2 spot on his depth chart. Mike White is still the starter. The Jets still believe he will be the starting quarterback against the Detroit Lions.

Wilson is convinced he will be the franchise’s future.

“Yeah, I definitely believe in myself. Of course I have all the confidence in the world — I think that’s how it should be — but you gotta be able to prove that.”

Wilson will be able to show that he is still the No. Wilson is the No. 2 quarterback which means that he is only one play away from being back on the field.

He will have to prove that he can regain his No. Another story is whether he regains his No.1 spot this year, or at any time. As Robert Saleh, head coach, says, week by week.
