Jets owner Woody Johnson criticizes Zach Wilson: Had no backup QB last season.

The New York Jets had a disappointing 2023 season, and owner Woody Johnson is obviously demanding change while criticizing the club.

Johnson spoke with media at the NFL Honors in Las Vegas on Thursday night for the first time since the club finished 7-10 and missed the playoffs.

Aaron Rodgers' Achilles tear in the first series of the season killed expectations, which Johnson likened to "having your arm chopped off." Johnson said he's frustrated with the team's season, 

especially on offense, and while he wouldn't mandate a playoff presence in 2024, he strongly suggested it.

"We must correctly employ our talent. It seems they all got the message. Finished. Time to depart. We must produce this year "Reports quote Johnson. "We have to do a lot better than seven (wins), definitely."

Johnson discussed the team's offseason needs and criticized quarterback Zach Wilson.

"You need a backup quarterback," he added. "We didn't have one last year."

Wilson was drafted second overall in the 2021 NFL draft by New York as the franchise quarterback, but lackluster play led to the acquisition of Rodgers, demoting Wilson to backup.
