Jets fans suspect Tim Boyle snitched on Zach Wilson report as Aaron Rodgers demands investigation
It has been a bruising week for Jets quarterbacks, whether that be Aaron Rodgers, Zach Wilson or Tim Boyle. After Wilson was benched, it was leaked through The Athletic that he is reportedly not willing to play or put his body on the line anymore for the franchise, based on how he has been treated so far.
Rodgers then went on the Pat McAfee Show and called the reports "chicken sh*t." He also implored the organization to get to the bottom of whoever was putting these stories out to the press.
Meanwhile Tim Boyle, after playing in two games, lost his starting place to Trevor Siemian in the game against the Atlanta Falcons. He has since been released, with New York getting Brett Rypien of the Seattle Seahawks' practice squad.
Now, fans are linking all the news together. They claimed Tim Boyle was benched and then cut not because of his performance on the field but because he was the one who leaked the information in the first place.
Fans took to X, formerly Twitter, to air their theories. Here are some of the posts.
Jets on course to outdo QB dysfunction from last season
Last season, the Jets used Zach Wilson, Joe Flacco, Mike White and Chris Streveler as their quarterbacks. This season it was supposed to be different. But Aaron Rodgers went down on the first drive of the season and it was back to the drawing board for them.
So far, they have used the former Green Bay Packers quarterback, Zach Wilson, Tim Boyle and Trevor Siemian. The ex-Denver Broncos quarterback could not provide any magic either as the Jets scored only 8 points against the Atlanta Falcons, who came into the game with a losing record.
If indeed Brett Rypien is given the chance to play, they will have used five quarterbacks this season, more than what they did last time around. The Jets' woes in that position seem to have no end. Hopefully for them, Aaron Rodgers returns for the coming year and they get a better offensive line to protect him so that they never fall back in this position again.
