Wilson vs. White

Robert Saleh, Jets head coach didn’t go into details about White’s status White said Monday that he is still undergoing evaluation. Saleh was also coy when asked if Wilson would be better against a healthy White.

Saleh stated that “We will get the clearance first.” “That’s something that I have to talk with the offense staff about. We’ll see how it goes. I don’t know the answer.

Saleh stated that there were more scans to check how much he had healed. There was some talk that they believed that a week would show greater healing. This would require him to see another doctor. He could still talk to us about it. There are many hurdles that he would need to overcome. [to start].”

The Jets benched Wilson for White for Week 11 After a terrible performance against the New England Patriots White was appointed as the QB1 and kept him inactive for three more games.

Wilson also had one interception. Wilson’s most impressive offensive performance since Week 8’s loss to the Patriots. Wilson’s errors were part of the reason why the Jets lost.

Despite being unclear at the quarterback spot, Saleh said Wilson would still be a key player in the Jets’ future, even if they lose.

Saleh stated that he was excited for Saleh because he used to get derailed when he hit speed bumps in games in the past. “But I thought that he did an excellent job of getting back to the rails and swinging back up during the fourth quarter to lead the touchdown drive.”

This season, New York’s premier fashion show, was won by Wilson and White. However, their victories were not the same.

White is 1-2 as a starter, but has a 62 per cent completion rate. He averages 317.3 yards of passing per game, with three touchdowns (and two interceptions) and 317.3 yards per game. Wilson is 5-3 as the starter, but is only completing 54.9 percent. He has thrown six touchdowns, six interceptions, and averages just 199.5 yards per game. Oddly enough, White’s Jets averaged only 1.1 points more per game than Wilson’s – 21.6 vs. 20.5.

Thursday’s game will be pivotal in both the Jets and Jaguars’ postseason hopes. Both teams will be more likely to win, but losing would make it even harder. White will be able to make an interesting decision if he is healthy. This will have a significant impact on the Jets’ 2022 season and its long-term future at this position.
