Should be fired after press conference!

Only the Jets would start a 38 years old QB and 31 years old RB in a youth movement year.  This is kind of funny in the pathetic sense.

Why couldn't he just name Petty the starter? It's a win-win situation. Jets fans get a young favorite to play, the vets like him and it looks earned. Easy decision that was botched.

He's not as good a player. That's what makes it an easy decision.

Because 4 wins look better than 3 on his resume at the unemployment line.

I thought Petty had a shot, but McCown was the favorite

He threw for 3 TDs, 0 INTs with a perfect QBR and got passed up for a guy who has a 30% winning percentage and has thrown 4 passes in preseason games.  How much of a shot did he have?

I'm more surprised that this decision was unexpected to some, than I am by it actually happening.

Odds are all three will be getting starts throughout this season.

Yeah, probably. 

I feel like the only downside to any of this is the fact that neither of the two younger QBs will get a full season to start, and I'm not sure they needed one for a full evaluation.

McCown was always going to be the starter. They wanted to see what they had in Hackenberg, and the answer was dogsh*t. Petty was never considered.

The good news -- I don't think any of these guys are good enough to stop us from getting Sam Darnold. This offense is going to SUCK.

Whatever. Mccown just better not F up this tank job. 

If McCown starts to have one of his outlier good games that has the Jets on track to a possible win, that's when we see how committed they really are to tanking.  If they are really serious about this, it might suddenly be "coincidental" that Hack gets his first play of the regular season at the first moment the Jets have a lead in a game this season.
