Man this is the 5th straight year knowing the starting QB to start the season who ever he is will be horrendous, you would think it would get easier to accept sigh.

So when Hackenberg goes 18-25 against TEN the media wants him thrown into the fire flinging 50

McCown to "ride to the rescue".  Make up your mind media, choose ONE side of the argument

That's not how it works. They rail against the grain, because our fans gobble it up... if our fans aren't irate, anxious and disgusted, then they aren't tuning in. It's ******* sad.

Who is going to be the starting Qb of the New York Jets day one of the season?

just enjoy the ride. 2018 will hopefully land a legit franchise QB and 80 million in cap space to fix the offense line. Patience!

Man this is going to be even more disappointing to everyone when the Jets don't land a franchise QB, and the guy they do pick will suck balls when they don't get that 1st pick setting the Jets back 5 more years, way to many of us are pinning our hopes on a ******* unicorn it's sad.

I would say McCown unfortunately, Hackenberg looked overwhelmed against DET.  But I have no problem

with the staff giving him extra reps and another shot against NYG to see if he learned anything from his fiasco

Why should they when they can continue to get this type of response from Jet fans ?  What do you think would happen to say Lavar Ball if nobody acknowledge him and his craziness ?  I never knew who that guy was until people starting talking about him and I wish I never noticed . What Jet fans need to realize is that all this type of reporting is not about th players or the team, but about the reaction of the fan .

Fans go on talk radio, and podcast and make heroes of the host while making idiots of themselves . I happens on message boards also .

You do an awesome job covering the Jets because you tell us what you see and occasionally, you tell us what you think without stating it as factual . They're some other posters around here who just report what ever news is Jet related . The trick is to eat the meat and spit out the bone but the vast majority of this fan base can't identify what is meat and what is bone while others just try to make a name for themselves doing what the media does.

The plan is correct. Whether we execute and select our future franchise QB is a completely different story. In the end, we are making a calculated decision. The alternative was to bring in some high priced vets this year in the hopes of making another miracle run at 10-6 and a wild card. With the way the Pats are stacked, that wouldn't make any sense since even if we made the playoffs this year with mccown we would still be in search of a franchise QB.

Fine. I am on the side that McCown gives them the best chance to win, but is a waste of time for the franchise.

Petty has a chance to be a long-term NFL backup.

And Hackenberg will be out of the NFL within 3 years... maybe sooner.

No the alternate was to draft Pat Mahomes, next year it's Darnold, or bust he is the only unicorn in next years draft, and your gonna need number 1 overall to get him!

If there are 4 franchise QBs in the first round next year, the NY Jets will also draft a QB.

They could have drafted Mahomes. I have to admit he looks legit. But it's still very early. Either way, for every Mahomes (assuming he is good) there are more Bortles/Ponders/Manuels and even Tannehills etc.. There is a reason guys like them are taken in the 6-12 range and not the 1-2 range. Macc's thinking was that this team had too many holes to plug and unless he was convinced a QB was a lock to succeed, he would take a lock with the top pick. Of course, Adams could be a bust in which case this board may implode. 

Time will tell if the strategy works. That is why most people think it's dumb to evaluate a draft strategy this soon.

It isn't though, the best time to evaluate a draft is that day it happens because that is the exact same time the jets front office has to.  It is useless to evaluate the draft 4 years later.  Oh gholston was a terrible pick that is my evaluation 4 years after he was drafted.

If you think plugging a hole at your safety position when you have ZERO on offense is the right call at 6 overall you gotta be replaced.  I liked the pick because of all the hype about the safe can't miss prospect that Adams supposedly is, BUT if you know your offense is this Barron of talent, and if your the GM you should know, you can't pass on a playmaker, or QB on offense just can't, McCaffery would have made more sense then Adams he would at least touch the ball 20+ times a game, and give the fans a couple of exciting moments for Christ sake!

True, but I think that the true pearl of wisdom in that song is when he says "AYE AYE AYE AYE". Obviously.

The team isn't pushing youth, they're pushing their god awful second round pick out there despite the fact that he's shown zero ability to be a starting player in the NFL. If they were doing it as a competition where you give the younger players a handicap, Petty would be starting, but that's not this. What Bowles and Macc are doing right now is committing professional suicide.

So can't wait for tomorrow when Bowles has McCown dress as a coach for tomorrow's practice instead of suited up in pads, media will be in a frenzy, and Bowles can smile some more for making his puppets dance!
