Garrett Wilson New York Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson (17) gestures to the fans during warmups before the Jets take on the New England Patriots at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, Sept. 24, 2023, in East Rutherford.

It’s only a matter of time before the frustrations with Zach Wilson’s play at the quarterback position start to boil over at One Jets Drive. In New York’s 15-10 loss to the Patriots on Sunday, Wilson completed just 18 of 36 passes (50 percent) for 157 yards.

That wasn’t good enough to snap the Jets’ 14-game losing streak against New England. While Garrett Wilson isn’t solely putting the blame on his quarterback, his actions during the game, including getting into a heated conversation with offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, spoke louder than some of his words during the postgame press conference.

Wilson, who caught five passes for 48 yards in the loss, was asked if he was frustrated with his usage in the game. While he’s not getting the ball as often as he was with Joe Flacco and Mike White under center season last season, Wilson attributed his frustration to the team’s back-to-back losses.

The Jets are now 8-12 during Wilson’s time with the team.

“No, I’m frustrated with not winning,” Wilson said, via The New York Post. “Whatever reason that may be, we’re trying to figure it out. That’s my job. I feel like I’m a player on this team, and everyone knows that about me, I don’t play about [anything but] losing and winning.

“When it’s competition I’m about all that, and we haven’t met the challenge the last two weeks. That’s where the frustration comes from and that’s where the emotion comes from.”

All of us at home know he isn’t going to throw his quarterback under the bus, but New York’s struggles on offense start and end with Zach Wilson.

Wilson called any potential personnel decisions or coaching game plans “above my pay grade.”

“I just feel like we could’ve done more. I could’ve done more,” said Wilson.

The Jets will need to be able to do more moving forward, or frustrations like these will only continue.
