Jets quarterback Zach Wilson got a vote of confidence from coach Robert Saleh — and scathing criticism from the most famous quarterback in franchise history.
Hall of Famer Joe Namath, echoing the sentiment of an angry fan base, blasted Wilson in a radio interview, while also taking aim at Saleh and general manager Joe Douglas.
“I didn’t take anything positive out of it. It was awful,” Namath told “The Michael Kay Show” on ESPN New York radio, referring to Wilson’s performance Sunday.
Namath was irked by Wilson’s first sack in Sunday’s 15-10 loss to the Patriots, when he went down without being touched.
“You sit down? You sit down on a play? You go right down? What happened?” Namath said, incredulously. “I thought you’re trying to win and make plays. You quit on a play? What is going on? It’s disgusting.”
The Hall of Famer said he’d trade Wilson: “I wouldn’t keep him. I’ve seen enough of Zach Wilson.”
