The Jets QB situation is a hot mess. Mike White got taken to the hospital after their game today because he took so many hits. Yet they still chose to put in the remains of Joe Flacco rather than their #2 overall pick from one year ago, because the latter has completely lost the respect of the locker room.

Meaningful December football!!!

I saw some of those sacks Mike White took and was surprised they weren’t carting him to the locker room in two pieces. He’s got to have some broken ribs at the very least.

One does not simply sleep over at the hospital for kicks and giggles.

My prediction: winner of this game goes to the playoffs. I think the Lions win 13-10. Jets jump out to an early 1st quarter lead of 10-0 but do not score the rest of the game. The Lions win is aided by a controversial INT in the end zone by Okudah. Mike White struggles with the crowd noise which is odd since it's a home game for him. Swift rushes for 184 yards with a big 53 yard run under 2 minutes to ice the game.

I'm surprised they don't just release Flacco at this point. Former ROTY, Super Bowl MVP, to 3rd string QB behind Mike White and Zach Wilson.

Why would they release him when White is one hit away from a collapsed lung and Wilson is nearing bust status? They may set him loose in the off-season, but not now.

How many #2 picks are so bad they are inactive not due to injury by year two and not become a bust?

I think it would be really fascinating to see a list of first round picks and grade 'em on their career... just to get an idea what percentage end up being stars... what percentage end up being good... or being just okay... or being busts.
