NBC’s Rodney Harrison rips Zach Wilson in salacious, awkward exchange with Chris Jones after Jets-Chiefs game



Former safety Rodney Harrison has earned a reputation as one of the most honest, straightforward and outspoken analysts in the NFL. This may put him in a difficult or awkward position. The Chiefs-Jets “Sunday Night Football” broadcast is the latest example.


Following the Chiefs’ 23-20 win over a surprisingly annoying Jets team led by the even more surprisingly effective Zach Wilson, Harrison had some choice things to say about the New York QB, as he appeared to have tried to provoke Chiefs manager Chris Jones into saying a few words. Things that don’t add up about Wilson.


To his credit, Jones didn’t take the bait, instead giving Wilson credit for his performance:




Rodney Harrison:

Was Zach better tonight than you thought he would be watching it on tape? And you can be honest.


Chris Jones:

If I’m being completely honest, we knew it was going to be a battle. He continues to improve each week. He continues to lead week after week…



But when you watch this tape, man, you have to look at this guy and say, “He’s a total loser, like, we should tear him to pieces.” …



Like I said, Zach Wilson is special, man, you just have to give him time, you know what I mean?



Wait, did you say Zach Wilson is “special”? I think he had a special night, but I don’t think he was “special”.


Overall, it was an awkward back-and-forth confrontation in which Harrison seemed determined to get a bite out of Jones to try and destroy Wilson. It also didn’t appeal to many of the fans who saw it, including Cowboys passer Micah Parsons, who shared some thoughts on Harrison’s position:




Before the game, Harrison mentioned that Wilson lacked “open guys” in 7-on-7 drills. However, Wilson had one of the best games of his career:

He completed 28 of 39 passes for 245 yards and two touchdowns. He also had a key fumble that could have cost the Jets the game.


Despite showing glimpses of potential, Wilson has been unable to maintain any consistency and because of this, he is frequently considered one of the worst midfielders in football.


Obviously, Wilson hasn’t done any favors in the league to receive praise, so even if he’s being blunt, Harrison may have a point. However, there is still a way to get your opinion in front of millions of NFL fans and Swifties, and it might not be the best way to do it.
