The New York Jets are reportedly sticking with Joe Flacco and many fans aren't happy about it.
ESPN's Rich Cimini reports that Flacco is expected to remain the team's starting quarterback with Zach Wilson still recovering from a knee injury, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
"Not a surprise," Cimini tweeted. "On Monday, Robert Saleh indicated Flacco would “likely” start, although he did open the door a crack. Don’t get the impression that benching Flacco for Mike White was strongly considered. #Jets."
Flacco struggled in the Jets' 24-9 loss to the Baltimore Ravens -- his team for his first 11 NFL seasons -- in Week 1, throwing for 307 yards, one touchdown and one interception on 37 of 59 passing, which yielded chants for backup Mike White from fans in attendance.
Numerous Jets fans expressed their dismay in the decision to once again go with Flacco over White in response to Cimini's report.
White made three starts in Wilson's absence last season, which included throwing for 405 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in an upset win against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Flacco, a former Super Bowl MVP with the Ravens, is winless in six career starts for the Jets.
The Jets will face the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium on Sunday.
