Are Zach Wilson’s days numbered?
Mike White got his first start of the year for the New York Jets on Sunday and made the most of it, throwing for 315 yards and three touchdowns on 22-of-28 passing. It was not only a vast improvement over Zach Wilson’s recent performances, it was a legitimately great game from the former fifth-round pick. Of course it came against a bad Chicago Bears defense but a win is a win and White showed he can do what Wilson cannot– hit the easy throws.
Ryan Clark argued on Get Up this morning that White’s showing and the good vibes that came with it were enough to declare already that Wilson will never start for the Jets again.
White isn’t going to play like this every game. As much fun as it is to remember that he dropped 400 yards and three TDs against the Cincinnati Bengals last year, he had a four-interception game two weeks later. There is a reason he has been relegated to backup status since getting drafted in 2018.
But the Jets like playing with White. Yeah, he’ll have a couple bad outings, but Wilson was so horrifically bad that a regular bad outing is an improvement.
