Jets' McCown still going strong, joining the likes of Thorpe

Jets QB Josh Mc Cown named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

There is will be no late-season change of heart. Entering Week 14, the Jets are just two games out of the final wild-card spot.

Currently McCown has a quarterback rating of 96.7.

"I've been saying that", said Bowles, when asked the lingering question.

The veteran has made it impossible to employ what was perceived as the initial plan - to eventually get Petty and Hackenberg some reps once the season had tanked. He hasn't thrown a pass since being drafted in the second round in 2016.

"As a competitor, you expect to play well, and your goal is to play well", McCown said. "But at the same time, man, for his career and what he's gone through, how do you not root for a guy to finish it out right? I think you can gain, because you get to see and you get a front row seat to a regular-season game every week, so you're getting to see and learn and I think those are good things". Coach Todd Bowles isn't going to be fired before the year is out and he said at his Wednesday press conference that Josh McCown is his starter the rest of the way. That list includes Tennessee's Marcus Mariota, Carolina's Cam Newton, Dallas' Dak Prescott and Cleveland's DeShone Kizer — none of whom were even in high school when McCown made his National Football League debut in 2002. "He's been huge for us, his leadership throughout the week and the whole season has allowed us to get better and better". (At minimum, he'll tie a career high in starts when he takes the field Sunday in Denver, with 13.) For Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg, this likely means waiting at least another offseason for an opportunity to start - in NY or elsewhere. He's already set career bests for touchdowns (18), passing yards (2,880) and is on pace to have his best completion percentage ever (67.8).

Malta court charges 3 with murder of journalist, 7 on bail
They were the first arrests in the case, in which the government has been accused of both political interference and incompetence. The crime shocked the Mediterranean island and raised concerns among European Union lawmakers about the rule of law there.

"I watch them work every day and they work really hard on the practice field and in the film room, so I do believe that wholeheartedly that when their next opportunity comes, they're going to be better for it because of the work that they put in right now", McCown said. I know it's going to come. "I guess it just confirms it".

At least Petty has played some. He's only been active for two out of his first 28 games.

"Just waiting for that opportunity". So I think for me. "I don't see why [Bowles] would go for a change", he said.

"I don't think they're losing anything by not necessarily playing just yet". Taking extra time to throw whenever I can to throw, or work mechanical things. Petty started those games in 2016 and didn't impress. Hackenberg didn't capitalize on his chances during the preseason when he played more than any other Jets quarterback and still finished last in the three-man competition.

Hackenberg, who has apparently learned a lot from McCown, fully understands this decision. But neither Petty nor Hackenberg are concerned about the future.
