Jets rookie quarterback Zach Wilson injured his knee on Sunday, and so it fell to 26-year-old backup Mike White to close out New York's 54-13 loss to the Patriots. This was a fun development because 1) Nobody on Earth knew who the hell Mike White was when he entered the game, 2) It is really fun to say "Mike White" out loud, and 3) It's always entertaining when a shitty team has to hand over the quarterbacking duties to a guy named Mike White for a few weeks.

But then, just now, the Mike White era all came crashing down.

Booo! Joe Flacco is old and boring, whereas Mike White is Mike White.
