Yet another showcase of how White’s teammates feel about him
Bring out the funnies in the Thursday presser.
In his media session before the Jets-Bills Week 14 showdown, Mike White took his opportunity to elicit some laughs and get in some shots.
First, Elijah Moore asked White what he thinks of the receivers. White went through every single wide receiver on the Jets’ active roster and practice squad… besides Moore. He then threw in a token mention of No. 8 at the end, making both Moore and the reporters chuckle.
Both Elijah Moore and Michael Carter interrupted Mike White’s press conference to ask questions…
Moore asked what he thinks of the receiver room. White jokingly listed every receiver on the roster and practice squad other than Moore.
Everybody laughed. #Jets

Later, Michael Carter joined the party, asking White if there is a different pedigree or mojo because he’s from South Florida. White’s answer is epic.
The hard hitting questions in the #Jets locker room today.
Michael Carter: “What’s it like being from south Florida and do you think there’s a different pedigree being from there?” @MikeWhiteQB: “100% now you wouldn’t understand that because you’re not from Florida.” 😂😭😭 pic.twitter.com/OEsRn45unA

White kept it going through, including when The Daily News‘s Antwaan Staley asked him about going in to face Buffalo after what happened last year.
White deadpanned: “What happened last year?”
Mike White when I asked him about his previous visit to Buffalo 🤣🤣🤣

White has it going on the field, garnering two 300-yard passing games in his two starts and leading the Jets within a hair of an upset over the Vikings.
He clearly has it going off it, as well.
