I don't think there's a writer in NY who knows less about the Jets than this dude....but in this case, he's right.

It is highly unfortunate Woody Johnson setup the hierarchy where Bowles and Mac are on equal footing reporting to him. If Hack is competent in the preseason but Mccown plays better bec of his experience Macagnin  will want to start Hack but we all know Bowles would rather go 5-11 with Mccown  than 3-13 trying out Hackenberg and if failing getting a stud in the draft.

McCown will be 38 in July, the Jets are his eighth team and his record as a starter is 18-42. What possible benefit is there to the Jets to let him open the season as the starter? Considering his track record, he is lucky to still have a job in the NFL.

 

Bowles just got done force-feeding the franchise a 32-year old quarterback with a record of 27-49-1 who was going on his sixth team, so maybe Myers could have saved us all a bit of time by just sending this as an email straight to Todd.

Hack needs to prove he can even function in the offense before we have this debate, IMO. Hack wasn't even at the level where you could put him in let him struggle and make the occasional play. He was just so far off. Apparently, he was even terrible in practice.

So I might be in the minority, but if Hack's still in a similar boat as last year where he can't make basic reads and is missing wide open throws, I understand why he wouldn't be starting.

Ideally, we wouldn't be starting McCown, but it is what it is at this point.

If Hack shows some grasp of whats going on and improvement from week to week, you have to put him out there.

It's been stated Hack has made progress to the point he is closing in on Petty. Although that sounds promising it's not really because we all saw what happened to Petty.
What we have not seen practice or otherwise is Hack working primarily with the number 1 starters...gaining chemistry with them so they are all on the same page. I think this goes for Petty as well...he was really thrown in a mess of a situation where the entire team had already checked out.

It seemed like only Petty and Anderson were the only 2 that were clicking when Petty was behind center.

I think this time with the starters will be huge for both QB's.

No doubt as well the Pro Fitz pack of players will no longer be causing issues...I'm sure that did not help either.

if that's the case, and it might be, you open the season with Petty.  If McCown opens the season I'll be fishing on Sunday's

So the best case scenario with starting Hack right away is he develops and becomes the franchise QB. The worst case scenario is he doesn't develop they go 2-14 and are in prime position to get a franchise QB in the draft.

The best case scenario with starting Mccown right away is he plays like he did that one season with the Bears and they miraculously go 7-9 have no clue about Hackenberg and are out of the running in getting one of the franchise QB's.

With these 2 options Cimini and Manish write articles stating its a forgone conclusion and obvious that Mccown is the starter. **** me

This is what happens when your GM has no clue.

We needed a QB and he got a Safety.....  errrr....3 Safeties.

 

 

They draft a Qb and they're in the same situation as last year - 4 QB's, not enough time for the drafted rookie and the aged vet probably starts again.

At least now Hack & Petty should get enough 1st team reps to force their way into the starters spot. Its hard to start when your given virtually no reps with the #1's.

I believe that Woody has been sold on the rebuild from the bottom up and that Todd Bowles' job security is not tied to his win-loss record. I think the criteria for Bowles will be the team continuing to play hard thru the end of the year and players showing improvement in their play. Things that clearly didn't happen last year. That's why the majority of the disgruntled veterans are missing, and we're still discussing trading Sheldon and cutting Decker. 

Starting Hackenberg is the logical play as long as he looks reasonably competent. Really, if he sucks, that's more of an indictment on Maccagnan, anyway. And the fact that the two men report to Woody equally works in Bowles' favor in that case. Mac offers his mea culpa, and then does whatever he has to do to draft the best QB in 2018. 

Contrary to this Myers article, I've read that the Jets were pleased with Hackenberg's progress over the course of the season, A lot is made of him never getting on the field last year, but I'm not sure what throwing him into a losing situation on a team that had already given up would've done for him besides sap his confidence. Fresh, new, young team, with the little optimism that goes with opening day, that's the time to start Hack. 

Great post. If Hack does start it will make the Jets look as though they really DO have a plan.

HMMM...I saw Bryce Petty running for his life then getting injured behind a crappy O-line.  Maybe Tom Brady wins with that line we had last year but he'd be the only qb able to do so.
