Jets' Todd Bowles not considering switch to Bryce Petty, Christian Hackenberg

DEC. 21 2016 FILE

"Josh will be our quarterback, and then we'll go from there".

If the goal is to try and win games, as Bowles said it is, then McCown should be the only quarterback throwing passes for the Jets.

The Jets' playoff aspirations took a serious hit Sunday when NY fell to short-handed Tampa Bay 15-10, despite the Buccaneers playing without quarterback Jameis Winston and wide receiver Mike Evans. At the same time, the Jets don't have a long-term answer at the position and some fans are clamoring to see Petty or Hackenberg, a 2016 second-round pick who has yet to take a regular-season snap.

That "something" would be an injury, and that's not a far-fetched scenario - particularly after all the pressure Tampa Bay put on McCown.

When asked if he meant an injury, Bowles said yes. Right now, the Jets are 4-6, having lost four of their last five games.

Last season, the Jets switched from veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick to Petty with four games left in the season when they were 3-9.

"I give my all to the role I'm in and, if that changes, I'll adjust accordingly", he said. I don't really pay attention to what outside kind of opinions are or that stuff.

The quest for a playoff spot in the AFC isn't over for the New York Jets.

Against the Buccaneers, McCown finished 23 of 39 for 262 yards with a touchdown and an interception while being harassed all day by the defense.

McCown threw his 14th touchdown Sunday, a new career high for him. Chicago ran a similar scheme in 2013. If that changes, I will help the best I can in any way.

McCown, in his 15th National Football League season, is also closing in on another personal milestone. He is also completing a career-best 69 percent of his passes. I'm doing that as best I can. Obviously, there are things we can do better and want to do better but considering coming together with a new group and everything I'm just really proud to be part of it. "This is what I expect out of Josh, and I think he expects the same thing". Hackenberg, given a chance to win the starting job in the preseason, played poorly and has been inactive in nine of 10 games.

McCown has played better than anyone could've hoped this season.
