Yeah, hopefully Mike white does well enough.

Gotta question the scouting department especially when looking at qbs, they've been terrible for years.
I love Douglas....but between Becton and Wilson...those look to be bad first round picks. But.... hopefully Wilson figures it out.

I like Douglas too. I think wilson was an owner influenced pick and the Johnsons are complete idiots. Becton I think is just bad luck.

I don't know about that....wasn't Wilson picked when Christopher was in charge? I don't think he is like his brother.... he would let Douglas make the call.

Also...picking Wilson wasn't a surprise... consensus was that he was the #2 quarterback in that draft.

Becton had red flags...and Wirfs would have been the better pick.

I'm not a Jets fan (quite the opposite) but I don't think they whiffed. I simply think they made the assumption he could learn on the job because the team wasn't going anywhere. Now with a playoff spot on the line they are making a change. He was always a guy who was going to need time to develop.

Be glad you're not the 49ers who gave up a king's ransom to take Trey Lance (also a developmental QB). They got lucky he got hurt. They would have had the same problem.
That's a nice, optimistic view from a non-Jets fan....and I wish I could buy it? Having Lucy pull the football away enough over all these DECADES makes that hard to do though.

In my head, they spent 2 top 3 picks on Darnold and Wilson and Belichick broke both of their brains.

Christopher is why we got gase for two crappy years, they both are disasters as owners. I agree wirfs would have been better, but Becton wasn't bad his rookie year.

Because I am a Jets fan....and UConn football fan....I always expect the worst.

Was the White we saw yesterday something we can count on...or will it be like last year and he will throw 4 picks against the Vikings?

Anyway....everytime Wilson isn't running the offense, you see how good of an OC Lafleur is...and how good the WRs are.

I know the Bears suck...but it was nice to enjoy watching both the defense AND the offense.

Wilson would have stunk and blamed the rain for his bad game. White throwing well in bad weather is nice to see. Hopefully he keeps it up. Lots of safe, quick throws. Wilson hangs onto the ball too long and wants to run around for some reason. Also helps that white got a couple olineman back to help protect.

Yesterday really put the cherry on the sundae in this regard. White didn't stand on his head. I think Saleh put it "he made the easy throws look easy" or something of that nature.

I don't feel I'm being out of line saying this. If we started White all year, we'd be leading the division right now heading into December.

It feels that way...but what happened last year? He started out hot then sputtered. Will teams now have recent tape on him and scheme to shut him down? Are the Bears just that bad?

I think it's too soon to say he should have been starting all year. But...if he does continue to play this way, you have to at least wonder why they started Flacco when Zach was injured the beginning of the year.

Last year, probably lack of talent at wr overall, I don't remember if Moore got hurt during that time frame or not. Defense was probably performing terribly and he was forced to throw more too.

True....more options this year at TE and WR should help White. Plus....defense should keep games close and White shouldn't have to be leaned on too often.
