The New York Jets will only play one primetime game in 2022.

For those marking their calendars, that will take place on Thursday night December 22 when the Jets host the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 16.

That’s what happens when you’ve had a successful season in the last 11 years.

However, the Green-Whites got an extra taste of the spotlight thanks to one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks.

On Thursday night, September 15th, we had a delicious AFC West game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers.

It was an amazing game on point, but the reason Jets fans were so excited wasn’t the in-game action, it was more pre-snap.

Chiefs superstar Patrick Mahomes was catched on the TV show (via NYJ_Matt on Twitter) changing an offensive play with the audible shout of “Mike White, Mike White, Mike White, Mike White!”

The Mike White game was nothing special, but the Chiefs walked away in Week 2 with a 27-24 win. Kansas City are now 2-0 and the sole leaders in the AFC West.

Coincidentally, Mahomes wasn’t the only one shouting out the name of a certain Jets quarterback this week.

In fact, a large portion of the Gang Green fan base chanted Mike White’s name in the middle of the season opener against the Baltimore Ravens at MetLife Stadium.

I was there live and I heard it, but that’s how it was also confirmed by Connor Hughes of SNY.

The Jets’ offense struggled to get the ball into the end zone in Week 1. In the 59 minutes of the competition, Gang Green had only collected three points from a field goal by Greg Zuerlein early in the competition.

With the game already lost, the Jets threw in a last-second garbage-time touchdown from Joe Flacco to Tyler Conklin that made the result a little more respectable.

Despite this, fans were quite unhappy with Flacco’s performance during the game. He was handsome, didn’t throw the ball deep and kept the ball in the pocket for far too long.

When head coach Robert Saleh was asked about the chants and potential of a quarterback move earlier this week, he left the door open.

I had Hughes on my podcast to discuss the why behind this decision and many conspiracy theories were thrown up:

Saleh clarified later in the week, stating that Flacco is his type going into the second game of the season against the Cleveland Browns.

But the fans in the audience only get louder when Flacco keeps plopping onto the deck like a fish.

Though White is running out of time because once Zach Wilson recovers, he’ll be thrust into an inactive third string role on the team.
