MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Garrett Wilson leaned against a locker, clenched his fist, and then unclenched it, over and over. He grabbed his left hand and went finger by finger, squeezing each one, veins popping. Wilson’s frustration has been simmering for weeks. Now it’s boiling.It took Wilson three quarters to receive his first target Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.
“I’m aware,” Wilson said, cutting off a question before it was finished.
Across the locker room, New York Jets players bemoaned the team’s poor effort in a 30-0 loss. Wide receiver Allen Lazard took it even further.
“I think they just played a better game,” Lazard said. “They outschemed us, out-efforted us.”
Effort. Scheme.
Wilson didn’t disagree with the assessment.
“Yeah,” Wilson said. “If Allen said it, it’s probably true.”
Last week, the Jets snapped a five-game losing streak by beating up the Houston Texans in a surprising 30-6 win, with all of the points coming in an explosive second half for an offense that had otherwise struggled all year.Wilson is having a harder time hiding his frustration, especially Sunday, when he was targeted just four times and cameras caught him on the sideline getting animated with his irritation.
“I mean, it seems like we’re being unintentional, to be honest,” Wilson said. “That’s my mindset. It’s simple. I feel like that doesn’t have to be the case. But it was. I guess I gotta fix it. I gotta figure out how I can get involved in the first quarter. Maybe it’s starting practice fast. I don’t know. I gotta show something, I gotta do something. They’ve got a good plan for us. They did a good job getting after us and stuff made it hard. That’s the way it was and I gotta be able to adjust. I don’t know. I gotta figure it out.”
