Jets' Bowles says he's sticking with McCown at QB

Jets' Bowles says he's sticking with McCown at QB”

When asked if he meant an injury, Bowles said yes.

Some frustrated fans took to social media and New York-area sports radio to call for McCown to take a seat and for the Jets to see whether Hackenberg, a second-rounder a year ago, or Petty, a fourth-rounder in 2015, can establish themselves as the answer at quarterback for the future.

With a 4-6 record and the playoffs looking less likely by the week, the Jets have to start focusing more on the future. Bowles is still coaching for his job also. "We're going to play the best player that give us the best opportunity to win in all positions and that's our philosophy and Josh is our starter".

Josh McCown reacts after a touchdown in the fourth quarter against the Buffalo Bills at MetLife Stadium on November 2, 2017.

Hackenberg, a second-round draft pick in 2016, still hasn't played in a regular season game. Petty is now No. 2 on the depth chart behind McCown with Hackenberg third.

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.

For Bowles, a quarterback switch would amount to waving the white flag, so you can understand his reluctance. So he understandably wants to play the quarterback who gives the Jets the best chance to win.

For McCown, he is not listening to the cries for the younger quarterbacks from some fans and media members. "If that changes, then I will adjust accordingly". "I don't pay attention to what outside opinions are". My role right now is to serve this team as the starting quarterback. If that changes, I will help the best I can in any way. "This is what I expect out of Josh, and I think he expects the same thing".

"I'm not coming up with a scenario right now", Bowles said during a conference call Monday. Their reluctance to put them into games is telling about how they view them.

In 10 games thus far, McCown has thrown for 2,242 yards, 14 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. Not bad for a 38-year-old journeyman.

McCown actually hasn't played that poorly in 2017.

"I'm pleased with how I'm playing", McCown said of his season.
