Josh McCown    QB  Jets

 

 

Jets coach Todd Bowles said he will announce his starting quarterback next Monday. Bowles wants to watch the tape of the third preseason game before making a final decision, but the competition is all but wrapped up after Christian Hackenberg laid an egg on Saturday night. At this point, it would be a shock if Josh McCown was not named the starter for Week 1. That said, McCown's injury history suggests Hackenberg and perhaps even Bryce Petty will get a chance at some point.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini believes it's not a "done deal" that Josh McCown is the Jets' Week 1 starter. The New York Post shared a similar sentiment in mid-June, and it's not the first time Cimini has questioned if McCown will be the starter. A 38-year-old journeyman who is always hurt and only sporadically effective, McCown certainly shouldn't be gifted starting duties. The problem is the ineptness of the young quarterbacks behind him. Christian Hackenberg isn't a legitimate NFL prospect and Bryce Petty blurs the line between No. 2 and 3. McCown is the favorite, but won't come close to making 16 starts.

Brian Costello of the New York Post doesn't think it's a "sure thing" that Josh McCown will start Week 1. It's the second time in three days that a Jets reporter has expressed skepticism in McCown after ESPN's Rich Cimini said Friday that the perceived gap between McCown and Christian Hackenberg "isn't as wide as we thought." Given the reports of Hackenberg routinely hitting unsuspecting reporters with errant passes at OTAs, you have to wonder just how badly McCown must be playing for Hackenberg to be gaining ground on him. The same goes for Bryce Petty, who has sunk to third on the team's QB depth chart. In addition to having the league's worst quarterback situation, the Jets may also have the league's thinnest receiving corps. This is shaping up to be a train wreck year in East Rutherford.

McCown is still the favorite to start at quarterback this season, but his underwhelming showing during minicamp didn't help widen the gap on Christian Hackenberg, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes said Josh McCown has been "far and away" the best quarterback at Jets OTAs. Hughes qualifies the statement by pointing out he has only been allowed to watch two practices so far, but the comment is not at all surprising because McCown is actually an NFL quarterback. Unfortunately, McCown has struggled to stay healthy in recent years, meaning we will likely see Christian Hackenberg or Bryce Petty at some point this season.
