Josh McCown named starter by Bowles.

Recommended Posts

We can't let Bowles ruin things again.  

Who owns a farm or a place that is really remote?  We need to arrange some sort of kidnapping of either Bowles or McCown.  

Treat them awesome.  I'm talking steak dinners, puppies, beer, hot chicks brought to them...  

But keep them locked up so they can't ruin our tank.

Who's in?

The only logical decision. I hope he doesn't play on Thursday night. He gets reps in practice and nobody hits him. We have a chance to be competitive with him. The players know this, too. And I think will put out an effort with him. Petty should be the backup and he could be ok if and when he plays. He has a chance to be the starter next season. We have seen some progress with him. 

I have no words for your evaluation of QB's!

Of course.  But when a guy is near-perfect with the limited opportunity he was given, do you give him a bigger opportunity or do you bury him?

let it go.  backups don't count.  even hack threw a TD on those fools, lol

I count everything.  meetings, practice, games, weight room.  somewhere along the line this staff decided his ceiling was backup. 

he had his chance last year as a 25 year old in his 2nd year in the NFL and he muffed it

I''m not happy about this decision because I do think you have nothing to lose by playing Petty but you guys do have to understand we're also trying to develop the other 52 men on the roster not just Hack or Petty.  We have a super young Wide received corps and inexperienced o-line who can also benefit from a QB out there who knows what he's doing.  Again, after seeing the first 3 PS games I was rooting for Petty but in a way I do get it.

Bingo! Said that a week ago...McCown's experience, familiarity with this offense and w/Bates allows him to transition the rest of the O for 4-6 games..Also allows Hack/Petty to observe, pick his brain in meetings/film study etc...  I'll still stand by thought that Hack starts by Nov, at the latest. JMO

His knee is practically healed already. He can play on it now. It is a MINOR injury

I am sure he could play on it.  And if this team were relevant, it would make sense to let him.  But what is the reward?  Petty is rather unlucky when it comes to getting nicked up.  I wont slap him with the injury-prone label yet, but I wouldnt send him out with a weakened knee either.  He could put no weight on it after it happened.  This team is going nowhere.  Where is the harm in giving him a couple of extra weeks to heal?  Take a look for yourself.  Grade 1 MCL sprain "can increase the risk of a repeat injury...  Maximal ligament strength returns after 6 weeks.."

Don't you think that his mobility and/or confidence in his knee is important behind the Jets OL?  Or is a statue with a knee contraption a better idea?

I am right about this.

Bingo! My sentiments also!

By that logic, Peyton Manning went 3-13 his first season.  Done.  No more chances.  Ridiculous.  New OC, new system.  The guy MIGHT be awful or MIGHT be good under fire but let's not find out because he was bad last season.  Keep throwing out the kid who clearly isn't ready followed by the 38-yo who has a 30% career winning percentage.  

Sorry...I strongly disagree and many of us will be watching every screw-up McCown makes while Petty is sitting on the bench and wishing Bowles would eat a bad burrito and get a chronic case of explosive diarrhea forcing him to take the season off to focus on his recovery so we can get a coach in there who actually knows what "open competition" means.

Once MCcown looks good then their hands will be tied. He'll get another contract same as Fitz and we can start this BS over again in 2020. 

Some people cannot learn from mistakes. 

"Once MCcown looks good then their hands will be tied"

That's the funniest thing I've heard in a long time! Have you watched this so called offense? 

McCown will be lucky not to end up in traction, he's gonna earn all of his 6 million, in lumps, bruises, etc.

Now that McCown has been named the starter, do you think the Jets should double his salary to $12M? You know, starter's pay. 

What I think is that Fitz would have had a better year in 2016 if he didn't have to hold out. As for McCown he probably has incentives and if he plays well like Fitz did in 2015 and the Jets want him back, he'll ask for it. Imo McCown is a more reliable Qb than Fitz was.

I recommend you and everyone else go listen to the Bates press conference. There is no plan to start Hack or Petty...ever. Barring injury. It is one of the most depressing things to listen to ever. Not only was there no competition, McClown was starter from Day 1 and Petty was eliminated before the season because of last year and they really don't care about his performance this year. They are completely confident in McClown because of all the stupid Fitz reasons, knows the offense, experienced, good personality, blah blah. When directly challenged on his ability to actually perform on the field, the answer was he is our guy. Bowles and this entire staff is on the McClown ship and will sink with it. Their only concern with Hack and Petty is NOT to make them a starter, but to groom them as backups in case of injury. He seriously says this in so many words.

Which makes not bringing in other QBs to actually compete even more criminally inept.

Can't wait to be competitive. Maybe they'll give us a competitive award, and ice cream without sprinkles.

Any coach who uses a tired old (dishonest) cliche like "gives us the best chance to win" should be fired on the spot just for that.  Cliches are evil.

Listen to the Bates news conference. The truth is even worse than what we dreamed up.

He gets a bonus for every game played so they essentially did as well. Which comes out of next years cap since they are LTBE

Who cares? Just get the # 1 overall pick

How do you not understand that this will never happen with McCown starting unless he gets knocked out in the first game. 

McCown is a nice safe QB that can beat bad teams. Guaranteed we win at least 4-5 games with him and pick 6th. He had a 93 QB rating with the Browns 2 years ago.

Guess we'll have the best CB drop to us. Can't wait.
