Welcome to the White House.
No secret service required. No political football games are allowed to be dropped. There is no agenda for the transition.
Pennsylvania Ave 1600 is not.
Mike White House.
Bitta MetLife Stadium Drive.
Not Josh Allen against Sam Darnold.
Not Josh Allen against Zach Wilson.
Josh Allen vs. Mike White.
Josh Allen is the seventh choice of the 2018 project. Mike White, 171st Choice of the 2018 Project.
Against Mike Goliath.
Everyone loves the poor, everyone loves the backup defender, and so Allen and the mighty Bills witness a White-hot love affair that has captivated New York and heroic hungry Jets fans.
“Mike White,” they sang when they last saw him, when he spent the game of his life and some of the games of his life. On Sunday, they sing “Mike White” again as White stares at Allen and refuses to blink.
“I liked it,” said Jets newcomer Michael Carter, “because I feel it was a great opportunity for him and he did more than that. … He deserved that moment.”
He deserves this moment, and after Wilson orders his injured knee to rest and follow the wise advice of one Yogi Berra – “You can see a lot through sight” – White strives to prolong this exciting honeymoon as much as possible.
The Jets fans, who have been waiting for their second Super Bowl title for 53 years, should have no problem waiting for Wilson to fall off the canvas, return to the saddle (when will it be this season) and become the star he was called up for the second time. be general.
Meanwhile, if it’s election day, White will win the popular vote, and probably by a majority.
Although Wilson often looks like a fish out of water, White emerged as the Great White Shark and bit a bit after the Bengal defense. Before his two middle fingers froze and he couldn’t catch the ball, he was ready to do the same in Colts defense.
You can become a Jets fan in a short time and feel like a Jets fan in a long time. The Jets are 61-107 since their defeat at the 2010 Asian Championships in Pittsburgh. The playoff drought will reach 11 seasons this year. Wilson was 1-5 years old when he went down. That shouldn’t have surprised anyone, especially the Jets fans – the rookie midfielder, the new head coach, the new striker coordinator, and all that.
Then White appeared and started the offense as he thought it would, and people are talking about Tom Brady and his rise, and head coach Robert Saleh has clearly pushed the pause button on Wilson and the newly acquired Joe Flacco.
Free agent general manager Joe Douglas Corey Davis, who was hired for Wilson for $ 37.5 million, will return to White on Sunday after a two-week break with a hip injury, but not for a minute. The Bills have the best pass defense in the league. This was another reason why it was the right move to give Wilson another week to rest the twisted PCL … because at this stage of his development he couldn’t show that he could put the ball on the field like White did. .
Wilson is right when he says his time will come. He will not be at the White House on Sunday at 1 p.m.
“[Wilson] Like me, he wants to be as great as the guys on our team, ”Carter said. “But there is no bad representative for him, as he takes it really seriously and is very methodical in practice. In games, if he is suspended, I guarantee you, he has learned from that. ”
Wilson had to study nine times. He also learned that it was much easier to play with Coastal Carolina than to play against Bill Belichik’s Patriots.
It’s easier for Wilson to accept his revised position because of his friendship with White. If Wilson continues to show humility in the face of personal challenges, it will be easier for his teammates to respect him. He rarely has hand skills. But JaMarcus Russell rarely had hand skills. Jeff George rarely had hand skills. If you don’t know how to play the position, unique hand skills mean nothing.
It turns out that White was the best backup defender in the NFL, and no one knew that. Even the Jets himself couldn’t have imagined throwing him 405 yards in his first start in the NFL. The contrast between the award-winning new player and the unknown reserve quarterback was sharp: Wilson often looked like he had excess caffeine in his pocket. White was like Sully Sullenberger landing a plane in the Hudson River. The difference was as obvious as Zach and White.
On Sunday, White House visitors are encouraged not only to be allowed to sing “Mike White, Mike White, Mike White,” but to be encouraged.
