I don't know what list of top 64 QBs you have but I'd be interested in seeing it, and I'd argue Zach Wilson wouldn't deserve a spot on it. No one was talking about Zach. You’re the one who brought him up. If he has any true believers left, they’ve all gone quiet. This is a thread about Mike White. I understand the love for White. He’s generally reading the field well and taking what the defense gives him, and he’s got the guts of a much more durable man. He’s got it between between the ears. What he lacks is natural ability. His athleticism in general, and arm in particular, are at the bottom end of the league. He’s similar to Ryan Fitzpatrick, who also got a lot of love around here once upon a time but never established himself as a true starting NFL QB. Or Chad, who also put up good looking numbers throwing to his outlets. He’s certainly not the only issue on the team, and put in a gutsy performance yesterday after coming up too short against a porous Vikings defense last week, but big picture… ? White’s a free agent after this season. If you want him to be the QB next year, first you have to pay him. For those purposes I’m not comparing him to Zach, I’m comparing him to every other QB option available. White’s presumed contract value has declined considerably since crushing a weak Bears team just a couple weeks ago, when there was actually some talk of slapping a franchise tag on him. Now I think we’re starting to see what he is: a high-end backup. A guy who can step in and win a game or two, but not someone who’s gonna be the guy. Zach is a complicating factor only because he’s got a guaranteed contract with a decent amount of money coming to him for the next couple years. If they’re going to pay another QB to compete(?) with him next year, I want someone better than Mike White. And make no mistake, I’d be content if the Jets traded Zach for whatever they can get and just moved on, but I just don’t see White being that move. It’s been a good story. 1 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
