Watching the film showcases the mental fortitude of New York Jets quarterback Mike White

The New York Jets left their Week 11 matchup with the New England Patriots facing true adversity.

Second-year quarterback Zach Wilson struggled mightily yet again. It continued a concerning trend, as Wilson has been much more bad than good this season, especially over his last few outings.

In four out of his last five games, Wilson has been brutal, minus one game at home against the Buffalo Bills. But it’s undeniable how bad Wilson was against the Broncos, Packers, and Patriots (twice).

The full, member-only Jets-Bears film breakdown (2:28:00 in length) can be found at the bottom of this article (must be a Jets X-Factor member and logged into the site). 

Wilson compounded his problems with how he was handling the media. From indicating that nobody knows what they’re talking about outside of the building, to not taking the blame for the Jets’ latest offensive output; where they put up only three points total and just two yards in the second half (averaging less than three inches per play).

The Jets locker room clearly started to build some disdain for their starting quarterback, which is never a good situation. From Duane Brown, Garrett Wilson, Denzel Mims and Elijah Moore clearly showing frustration on the field as Wilson was missing throws, to John Franklin-Myers and Sauce Gardner “accidentally” liking negative tweets about Zach Wilson not taking accountability.

Coach Robert Saleh made the tough, but correct decision to start backup quarterback Mike White going forward.

The fan-favorite White had a Hall of Fame-worthy game in relief last year against the Cincinnati Bengals. White eventually lost his starting gig as he faced his own struggles and Zach Wilson got healthy.

White followed up his 2021 campaign with a less-than-ideal 2022 offseason, as he didn’t necessarily show out in practice or during his preseason snaps.

Luckily for Jet fans, White balled out against the Bears, leading the Jets to a blowout 31-10 victory. White’s excellence is showcased in its entirety by the film.

  • Just how good was Mike White?
  • Was this better than his Bengals game from 2021?
  • Who else stood out for the Jets in the victory?
  • What was difference from the offensive play calling?

We dissect all of this and much more in the newest edition of Blewett’s Blitz!
