NFL Draft 2021: BYU sports writer begs Jets not to pick Zach Wilson
This is different.
Robinson has been on staff for more than 40 years, so he has the pulse of the BYU football program and the fans who support it.
That prompted Robinson to pen an open letter to the New York Jets, begging them not to select Cougars quarterback Zach Wilson with the No. 2 pick overall in the 2021 NFL Draft.
In asking the Jets to “give the kid a break,” Robinson lobs some verbal barbs at New York:
“Look, the Jets are to quarterbacks what Larry King was to marriage.”
“It might surprise you to know that the Jets have had one winning season in the last decade. Who thought it was that many?”
“Do you realize that the Jets’ all-time leader in starts is still Joe Namath? Namath is the single-most overrated football player in history (look at his stats, just for fun), and he’s still the most successful player they’ve had at the position. That’s more than a half-century ago.”
