New York Jets quarterback Mike White has carved his place out in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
According to ESPN, White’s jersey from his first career start has been added to the HoF because his 37 completions against the Bengals were the most for a QB in his first start in league history. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
He’s also only the second QB since 1950 to throw for at least 400 yards in his first start. You can take a look at his HoF setup below.

Not only did he dominate, but he led the Jets to their second win of the season.
Mike White said he and his wife went to dinner after the game. He said he did pay for dinner. Come on restaurants – Mike White should be eating for free after that game.

I think it’s more than fair to say that White has taken the league by storm since this past Sunday. Nobody had heard of this guy before he stepped in for Wilson against the Pats and now, football fans can’t stop talking about him.
The NFL can be a wild place and White is soaking it up for all its worth.

It should be a blast to see what he can do until Wilson is healthy enough to play again. Do we have a QB controversy in New York? We’re going to find that in the coming weeks!
