“I see Zach as more of my friend than my teammate, and he’s amazing,” said Jets signal caller Mike White. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk after White guided the Green Gang to an impressive 31-10 home win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday. “I can’t say enough about him and his attitude and how he approaches this issue. He’s always 100% supportive of any need. He’s always there and he is. said, ‘Hey, when I was running this and this something happened in the game,’ and just little things like that, and he was amazing.

The Jets 7-4 will play again at the Minnesota Vikings 9-2 next Sunday. Wilson’s condition in that game remains unknown after he was out of action against Chicago while veteran Joe Flacco acted as a primary backup for White.
White added of Wilson: “I certainly don’t want to sound like he’s no match because he’s trying to get back on the court like any of us. “Everybody in this dressing room is fighting like crazy to get on the pitch because that’s why we’re doing this. We play this game to go out on Sunday and be able to perform. He is. doing a great job of balancing the two.”
Interestingly, White hinted that he may not know if he will start the game against Minnesota until Tuesday. Logic suggests Saleh will want to go with hot hands considering the Jets will be a playoff team if the season ends today.
